This was my first time in this hotel. I usually frequent the Residence in on Duke Street. Never again. This hotel has the Duke St. location beat hands down. The staff is much nicer and more accomodating. The rooms are of a much better quality than the Duke Street location - which are typical cheap Northern Virginia construction like most of the apartments, condos and new homes in the area (cheap appliances, paper thin walls, doors made out of beaver board, etc.). The location is very good - a 5-10 minute walk to the Eisenhower Metro and at least 10 good restaurant and bars within 10 minutes. Yet it is in a quiet location in Carlyle - as long as you don't get a room next to the metro tracks (yes - like the Blues Brothers). To avoid that, ask for a room at or above floor 6 or on the street side below 6 and you will be fine. This will be my hotel of choice when I visit DC. If you get a chance, take a 12 minute walk and dine at Brabo on King St. A bit expensive but wonderfully executed food.
