Nice hotel. Bad color!

Posted 17-Sep-2014
Pros: The staff at the hotel were very nice and very helpful.
Cons: The lobby decor is very unpleasant. It is very dark and not particularly attractive.
Location: Good location to get to many tourist sites, Dupont CIrcle, and good restaurants.
We enjoyed our stay despite the color scheme and rug choices. The staff were very friendly, the room was very spacious, and the bathroom was nice and adequate in size. One plus was the large mirror in the room! This is often lacking in typical hotel rooms. The hotel is in a great location and easy to get to by car or from which to walk to restaurants and interesting neighborhoods. Overall, we had a great experience despite the overkill on the color red.

With the price...

Posted 08-Sep-2014
I expected to at least have a coffee maker and an air condition that cooled the entire room for the price I paid. They explained the lack of a coffee maker on the fact that they have great coffee in the dining area. Ummm, would have loved to have had coffee in my room without the jacked up price for room service. Half air conditioned room... No explanation. Oh yeah, valet car service for one night $50.00! Would I return... Maybe. They said the room I got with two queen beds instead of the king bed was because I booked through Expedia... That is a first!

Hi Julia. I am disappointed that you didn't fully enjoy your visit but thank you for the valuable feedback. We do have great complimentary coffee available in the lobby but we also can put a coffee maker in your room on request. The HVAC issues will need to be looked into ASAP. We rarely get this complaint but I hate to think that any of our guests are uncomfortable because the room is too cold or too hot. Parking is very expensive in DC; however, our prices are comparable to other garages and hotels in the neighborhood. We hope to see you again and thank you for the comments!

Hotel with a Groovy Vibe

Posted 08-Sep-2014
I have stayed at this hotel several times. It is a great hotel. The decor is really contemporary. Reminds me more of a hotel on South Beach than in downtown Washington DC. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveing to DC.

Fantastic hotel

Posted 04-Sep-2014
Pros: Everything
Cons: Fridges in bedrooms
Location: Within walking distance of the sights including the Whitehouse and the tour buses are a must. (Fab)
Absolutely superb hotel within walking distance of the sights including the Whitehouse. Spotlessly clean and so comfortable huge rooms. Free wine between 5 and 6 each evening plus free tea and coffee each morning. Lovely hotel staff.
