Great hotel in the center of DC

Away from the tourist areas, I came here to just relax for a night. I got to more than relax in this very comfortable hotel.

Good location

Posted 04-Aug-2014
Pros: The location.
Cons: I'd like it to a little bit more cleaner.
Location: There is a wonderful crepes shop nearby on 14th Ave, loved it!
It was very nicely located with many restaurants nearby within walking distance, the metro was about 10 min away. We forgot to bring slippers and they didn't have any, which is a downside. Free wine was offered and we took it up to our room because we were so tired, but then the glass was really dirty! We were too tired to go down and argue though. You can get free wifi by signing up to be a Kimpton member. Overall, it was a good price for the location.

A disappointing experience

Posted 28-Jul-2014
Pros: Location.
Cons: Restaurant, the menu, the layout and the furnishings. Chair were uncomfortable and the ones we sat in were in poor condition.
Location: Easy walk to the home of some friends. Also easy walk to White House.
I have stayed in other Kimpton hotels, and have always enjoyed the experience. So, I was looking forward to this stay. Unforunately, the hotel was noisy, the restaurant menu was limited and the restaurant seating was uncomfortable both in layout and the furnishings. Service was indifferent. I arrived in a car, and had to go inside to look for the valet to park it. Front desk person who checked me in was pleasant, but distracted and the line was long because she seemed to be alone.

From Cleveland, OH to DC, felt like home.

Posted 15-Jul-2014
The refreshingly relatable staff, clean room, and comfortable feel of the hotel made my stay great. The staff engaged in conversation like family, and the place was clean like mother's house.
