The hotel is clearly going through some updates but seems to have been neglected for a while. The coffee bar had a white sheet around it and a sign that the hotel was undergoing renovations (though I didn't see any activity during my four-day stay). I did, though, see some construction at the demolished block in front of the hotel...

It is not that expensive for the Location: close to King Street and few blocks award from the river. Although it has not much public transportation near by you can always use free shuttle to the airport and go from there anywhere else. Or just walk to Blue Line of metro and get to the Mall. I just stayed one...

Thankfully, the hotel is presently under renovation. The rooms are clean and the beds are very comfortable. The overall decor is quite "institutional" in beiges. The rugs in the rooms appear to be thread-bare. Upon closer examination, however, it appears the patterned rug was chosen to look that way! We had both breakfast and dinner in the "restaurant" (cafe really)...

Stayed here for four nights as I was chaperoning for a school trip to Washington. This hotel was very accommodating to our group of thirty 8th graders! They were currently undergoing a renovation of the 4th floor only as of March 2017. The room itself was great, more spacious than the average hotel room. Beds and pillows were comfortable, also....

At a little less than $300 a night I expected much more comfort. (2-night stay) To start the room was less than comfortable for a "just renovated" room. Pros: Hotel & room appeared clean and most staff was friendly. Cons: The heat did not work and the loud fan ran constantly. The overwhelming stench of cheap new carpet made me...

Very pleasant service. However, the hotel is supposedly having a renovation, and it needs one. I wouldn't step foot in the bath tub. There was no bathroom fan, and the faucet in the sink leaked. Breakfast was okay one morning and poor the next. I did have a good Caesar's Salad with shrimp. I hope it is upgraded soon.
