Editorial review:

Being located close to the White House, this boutique-type hotel is definitely a favorite amongst those visiting the capital. The staff is brilliant and so are the rooms and bathrooms. Fresh orchids are in the baths as well as Roger & Gallet toiletries. The fitness center is top-notch, and the large bar attracts the after-work crowd as well as guests making it a very fun atmosphere in which to spend the early evening.

    The carpet in our room was stained, the air conditioning was broken, our room looked out on an alley and 2 big airconditioners. Front desk staff were unhelpful

    location, location, location! Two blocks from the White House and very close to everywhere we wanted to visit. We ate at the hotel one night and the food was excellent. The service throughout our stay was top-notch and the concierge was more than helpful.

    No top sheet on the bed (!) - just a bottom sheet and very hot comforter. The thermostat didn't control the temperature at all so the room ran warm then cold, warm then cold, all night long.

  • Older travelers

    The hotel was located next to the Whitehouse and National Mall. This was convenient. It's also in the downtown area and would be a good location if you were conducting business in the Area. The staff was friendly and helpful.

    This hotel is not really a good vacation type of place. The hotel interior was just OK. The carpet was old in the rooms and hallways. The soap dish was rusted and dirty. The bathroom door was very difficult to open an close. WiFi was not free. The breakfast was expensive for what you get. Parking was expensive at the hotel was $40/night. Local garages were $20 per night with no in/out priviledges. Again, if you are taking a business trip to the area, then this is probably a good hotel. For a weekend getaway, I would try another place.

  • Group of friends

    The staff were gracious and personable, always prepared to greet us as family and provide whatever assistance we requested. The room was well appointed and maintained during our four day stay. Hotel was perhaps the best-located of all in DC.

    The room could have had more hooks in the dressing and bathroom area for hanging robes, towels, clothing.... :)

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    Great location! Breakfast staff should be more rapid and more friendly.

  • Single
    8.8

    The room was very comfortable - a great bed and plenty of room. lovely bathroom. A good restaurant if too tired to go out.

    Problems at check out as hotel had not deducted one nights accommodation as written in paperwork from booking dot com - price was higher than I booked on Booked.net - still to be sorted out. Channel selection on TV poor - hving to pay for most channels. No free wifi or even access in public areas - very poor for a top class hotel.
