“Gem of a place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2011

Found through hotels dot com and will definitely return. Clean room, good price, helpful staff, great location for Dupont Circle or the zoo (walked to both). Don't pass this place up!

I stayed here for 3 nights recently after getting a good deal on a bidding website ($100/night). The room was surprisingly large, clean, and comfortable. The wifi was good and strong and the bathroom looked brand new. The only problem was that you can't control the temperature in the room and it got pretty stuffy. Also it's about half a mile from a metro station, which can be a long walk at the end of a hard day. Otherwise, fantastic hotel, especially if you can get it at a discount.

An actual key, that is. As this was a last minute booking finding any space in or near the Georgetown area of Washington at a reasonable price was something of a minor miracle. The lobby area is in need of remodeling, hopefully in keeping with the dated motif of the property. Looking at the small water stain in the popcorn finish just above the check-in desk one questions one’s choice of lodging.

And then you enter a time warp.

As the desk clerk hands you your room key you realize it’s a key…a REAL key; metal with teeth and an elongated diamond plastic key fob with embossed room number. The hotel is an older property and has been kept clean and well repaired outside of the lobby. The rooms are what one would expect if one remembers travel circa 1975. The only things missing are the “magic fingers,” the shag carpet and the retractable clothesline in the shower (which would have come in handy this trip, but I digress). The hotel does have Wi-Fi on every floor but there is no large flat television waiting for you when get back which is fine since it was unplugged to provide power to the laptop. The bathroom had all new fixtures: tub, sink and commode, including the “sanitized for freshness” paper seal. The breakfast was simple fare: bagels, muffins, coffee and juice.

The proprietors are not running a boutique hotel; they simply are trying to make a living and have a classic property as their business. Many deride the lack of modern amenities due to our national indoctrination of largess. As such this property was a welcome escape from modernity and a reminder of one’s youth when travel was something special.

We were there to check out the colleges over Columbus holiday weekend. The embassy's are all around this beautiful well kept neighborhood. The hotel is old, but very clean and spacious. The only issue you might have is parking. We were lucky that it was a holiday, and the area wasn't that busy. I would stay here again.

Just ten-fifteen minutes walk to Dupont Circle (metro Red Line), on a beautiful quiet square. Rooms are average but clean. Breakfast ends at 9, but hot coffee will be there till 10 or so. Clientele: mostly couples and families. Excellent value.
