Reviewed 12 September 2015

My room on the 5th floor was comfortable but I wish it had a refrigerator. The hotel location was convenient in that it is near the Mayflower Hotel and near the National Geographic Museum. The front desk was helpful in solving a computer related problem.

This hotel will give you a "comp" for a small fee without explaining that the fee will be charged daily! The hotel itself is located in a central location for tourists and is convenient for Metro travel, however there is a lack of mid priced restaurants in the area.

...when he discovered America. At least our room looked like it hadn't been updated since. The carpet was disgusting and sticky. In the bathroom the paint chipped off the ceiling. Our room smelled like former smoking rooms do. On the positive side, the staff was exceptionally friendly, from front desk to concierge to bar to house keeping.

I would not select this hotel for a vacation, but is quite nice while attending a meeting that is held in the hotel. The only problem I had was with the slow elevators. There is an executive lounge on the ground floor, next to the restaurant. You swipe your room key to get in. In fact, it seems like several...

The location of this property is nice for those who want to visit the White House; and it was close to two subway stations. Check in went smoothly. I had arranged our stay with an AARP discount, in addition to my Hilton Honors membership, allowing us to have a late check-out after going on a tour of the Capitol. Unfortunately,...
