I've stayed here several times, and it's always been very clean, comfortable, and just what I need. The staff is extremely friendly, helpful, and attentive. You can hear trains from some of the rooms. The location is ideal for business or leisure, and a very quick taxi ride from Reagan airport DCA. The on property conference spaces are adequate. The...

This hotel is located in a good location, especially if you're there for attractions. A few places are in walking distance, while others may not be in walking distance, per-say, but still in close range. You can take an Uber and get to most places for under $10. The room was clean and was a decent amount of space. I...

Nothing to complain about except from the price of the parking, but this is the case in Washington. Decent size room, close to the sites, next to the Smithsonian. Did not try breakfast. I opted for the Starbucks right next to it.

Everything started off well....check in quick....help with bags to the room. Room was OK...a little small...bathroom was small. Read reviews about the train....they are all correct...trains are loud and all through the night. Nothing but a McD's and CVS around this property....NOTHING. Restaurant in the hotel was OK at best. Gift shop in the hotel was doing "inventory" for the...

The hotel is located right across the Dept of Education- a long 4 storey building. The hotel building is awful and ugly, but the inside is modern and clean. Room large with windows. Closet, dresser etc are separate wooden standalone pieces of furniture. Bathroom is OK, but shampoos and soaps suck. Bring your own. Very close and walking distance to...
