Thank you for staying with us on your recent trip to our area. We appreciate your letting us know you enjoyed your stay. In fairness I would have to say that while you can walk to some restaurants, we don't recommend walking because there is no sidewalk on the hotel side of Van Dorn Street and with traffic we don't...

I used this hotel to have a relatively inexpensive abode while visiting Washington DC. In principle that worked. Hotel room: comfortable, good amenities, free wifi has good strength even at 6th floor, but requires authentication through browser web page every day. Breakfast: included in the rate, not bad for USA continental style. There is plenty of fresh fruit and yoghurts....

I was pleased with this hotel. It was clean. The room was clean (and I'm OCD). I check everything when I check in a room. The water pressure is "very" low...even when you flush the toilet, but it wasn't bad. My first complaint was the air in the room. I like a cool room and the air is set to...

We are very sorry for the issue with the fire alarm. A guest on the 9th floor pulled the alarm for reasons unknown as there was no fire. County fire code requires us to leave the alarm running until the fire department clears the building and resets the system which is why it took over 20 minutes to shut the...

The hotel is not far from the metro station, but requires the use of the shuttle. The shuttle was very nice, but you needed to call it for pick up and as we came from overseas we couldn't use our phones. However, we always found a helpful person at the station who called for us. The hotel was basic, but...

We spent three nights here. Our room was comfortable and clean and surprisingly quiet. We took advantage of the complimentary shuttle to the metro station to go to D.C. (very convenient). My only complaint is that I had to call twice for pickup the first night-somehow the shuttle driver didn't get the message the first time. Overall it was a...

In planning my trip to D.C., I was searching for a hotel with good rates, close to the metro, and decent rooms. That is exactly what I received from this hotel. It is not the "5-Star Luxury" kind of hotel if that is what you are looking for during your stay; however, it is clean, with polite staff, and a...
