Recent reviews

Good 7.8 From 1,010 reviews

Good 6.0
Great location, reasonable facilities considering the price. Most staff friendly. Having already emailed the hotel several times about a change to my booking, there was more confusion on check in. The receptionist rung somebody and spoke in a foreign language whilst clearly discussing my booking but was able to revert to English for other parts of the conversation, which went on for some time. I felt this was quite rude and certainly did not make me feel relaxed or welcome having just arrived.

Very good 8.0
Clean and modern room with all the amenities and attentive concierge. The air con kicks in whenever the room reaches a certain temperature, and unfortunately it sounds like a tank. You can probably fix this by playing around with it though, I confess I never tried.

Handy for the sights
Very pleasant stay staff helpful. Good area close to the white house and the mall. Rooms are comfortable but quite small, little storage space.

Ideally located. No more than a 10 minute to the White House and no more than 15 minutes to the Smithsonian museums. Could do with modernising but ok if you are simply looking for somewhere to sleep

Really pleased.
Lovely hotel; excellent for the price. Staff were friendly, rooms clean - Loveky sheets! Good shower. Big bathroom. We requested a higher up room and got 9th floor which was quiet away from traffic. Very close to the White House and easy access to Metro.
