The room was nice, well kept, and the property itself was in order, I traveled for a conference and this hotel was an overflow option. The good-bed was awesome and I slept well...then it so good is that the hotel does not offer complimentary wi-fi, who doesn't offer that in today's world? So I had to work from the hotel...

The website was not working to modify a reservation so I called the hotel directly and made the change with the reservation agent. Upon arrival, I was told that the change was never made and that I would be charged for the additional night that I had dropped. My oral appeal to the desk agent was rejected and my written...

The staff were very friendly, professional and accommodating. Many tourist sites are within walking distance of the hotel. Will definitely stay here again. Parking fee was kind of high, but didn't have to worry about parking for 2 days.

My husband and I stayed for two nights while enjoying a sightseeing trip to DC. The location was perfect- easy walking distance from Union Station, and semi-easy walking distance to the Mall/museums. There were always cabs and Ubers lined up out front, so we never had to wait for or even call a cab. The bar in the hotel is...
