We stayed here during Oct to do the Washington sights, and many are within walking distance. The hotel is as you would expect as it caters for the corporate market more than sightseers. It is big, functional, clean well equipped, but slightly impersonal. Wholly suitable for its purpose.

I chose this hotel last minute and to my surprise it turned out to be a great choice. The staff was friendly and the lounge was comfortable. It was only a couple of blocks from the capitol building. From there its a great location to begin the path around the mall. I had a beautiful view of our nations capitol....

Stayed here for 5 days. Prompt,friendly check in.Room on 12 floor so nice views over city.Room was spacious,clean and bright.Tea/coffee facilities available. Not much atmosphere in bar area and lobby feels quite cold & sterile-no 'buzz' about the place.Would benefit from coffee shop/bistro area where could get quick coffee or snack without having to go out.

We took my parents to Washington DC for a weekend for my father to visit the War Memorials. We took Amtrak to Union Station and needed a place that would be a short walk from the train station.

Stayed two nights. Room was nicely appointed and clean. Good customer service, both at reception, restaurant and door service. Hotel is in a perfect location, walking distance to Capitol and Smithsonian museums. Breakfast was subpar.

Great location within walking distance to Union Station with access to hop on hop off buses. Hotel staff amazingly nice and friendly. Room immaculate! Only problem no wi-fi. Price was reasonable. Parking way too expensive $46 a night. Yikes.

OK you are in Capitol Hill, OK you are in Washington DC ................therefore room rate cannot be cheap, understood, but when you pay 250 bucks only for sleeping and you get (with rare exception) rude and unpolite personnel, an embarassing wifi, lack of sockets and no safetybox (!!!) in the room, this cannot be acceptable.
