Exceptional 10.0
Wonderful stay
This is a really friendly, welcoming hotel, nothing being too much trouble at reception. Room clean, bed comfortable and although on the small side there wad plenty of room to store cases under the bed Food in the downstairs restaurant good, loved the jambalaya, and the upstairs roof bar was relaxing. My husband was amazed a the huge selection of whiskies downstairs but he is not a fan of American whiskies so we did not stop. Overall highly recommended, just inside China town and so close to the numerous sites.

Awesome Vibe hotel in the centre
A fabulously beautiful modern hotel with small compact rooms with a lovely shower room. It is on the edge of Chinatown and opposite a metro. It was so convenient to everything around. Lovely rooftop bar and a downstairs coffee shop Will certainly stay again.
Sandra, gb2 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Great hotel for seeing DC. Rooms are light, clean and well-equipped. If you're a light sleeper, ask for a quieter room on the upper floors. Rooms on the 4th and 5th floors are able to hear the street noise, but it's only a problem if you're a light sleeper and not used to living in cities. The hotel provides earplugs and a white-noise machine to help you sleep too. Wifi was great, no problems with streaming. Staff really friendly and welcoming. Really like the media hub in the rooms too - makes it super easy to connect your own HDMI device (e.g chromecast) to the TV. All in all, a great stay for a short city break!

Room is small but makes up for it!
The Staff was very helpful and give great recomendations for things you are looking for, the hotel is in a great place great choices for places to eat and right next to the Capital One arena makes getting back after a event so easy and less stressful. The room is on the small size but has everything you need and had a great media hub right next to the bed for the techies it’s perfect for people staying one or two nights for a event at the Capital One Arena maybe not if your looking for a week holiday. Also has a great Classic Whisky Bar in the basement.

Amazing stay in DC at the POD at half the price.
OMG hotel is excellent don’t be put off by area. Really safe and at the centre of everything. Hotel is a room which is comfy and clean what more does one need. The hotel is linked to the restraint and whiskey bar you much check this out.

Great (but very noisy at the front)
Very small rooms but good quality finish with good amenities at a good price. The only thing to be aware of is that, if you are at the front of the hotel, it is very noisy. There is a drummer who performs outside until 10 pm every evening and the noise travels directly into your room. An issue if you would like to go to bed early.

Modern hotel, convenient location
This hotel is well located for getting around Washington. The front desk staff are really friendly and the service is full of nice touches, like lending guests umbrellas when it is raining. The rooms are very small, but have everything you need and it means the costs are reasonable for Washington

Overall a very good stay!
This hotel is almost new as it opened juat a year ago, it is well located in downtown DC although the area around it s a bit rough. Great roof top bar and wiskey bar! The only downside is that rooms are really really tiny. But overall it is a very good option in DC

Great room, great location and great price
Seamless check-in and check-out. Great room, great location and great price. Perfect for a couple who don't need all the space present in most hotel rooms.
