The hotel is 1 block and across the Washington Circle from the Metro stop. It is a 20 minute walk to western end of National Mall or the White House. We spent days being tourists, and then picked up our "to-go" dinner at Whole Foods (just 1 block from the same Metro stop). The kitchen in the room had the dishes, stove, and refrigerator we wanted to make this very easy.
The hotel staff was very pleasant and helpful, and not intrusive. The noise from ambulances going to the hospital on the other side of the circle was noticeable but didn't wake us up.
This hotel is full of characters. My room was new and clean. It was a small room but the bathroom was a nice regular size bathroom. My room had three windows, they all had nice views. The hotel staffs were very nice. They also provided complimentary bottled water. The internet is not very fast. However, after a long day of walking, I don't really need internet. My bed was very comfortable. The hotel's location is the best. It is not far from several Metro stations. You can also walk to Smithsonian and China town (Less than 1/2 hours of walking distance). I love this place, I will stay there again.
The place was great however our room was not ready when we checked in at 4:30! Also our room said it had a balcony by the door was sealed shut. It was nice that our room came with a noise machine because we had children with us. The bands were very comfortable in the room was very clean. Overall a great hotel
Pocket Guide: Washington Downtown Washington D.C. Hotels
Downtown DC is awash with culture. The Smithsonian Institution museum complex flanks the National Mall. The Washington Monument bisects the Mall, just south of the White House. Federal agency headquarters house bureaucrats of varying stripes. Moneyed and powerful lobbyists help create (and quash) laws from K Street. Chinatown and the Washington Convention Center lie east of downtown.
