Nice hotel with charm in central DC

Posted 21-May-2015
Pros: Room, bed, lovely balcony, old charm.
Cons: Put a coffee maker in the room.
Location: It's in the middle of DC. Google "things to do in DC" and you're on your way.
I travel a lot for business, so am looking for ease of check-in, comfort, convenience. Pleasant ambiance is a bonus, which this hotel has. MAJOR negative is that the management has decided to go with the new trend in "nice" hotels of not putting a coffee maker in the room. I don't know why they think that it's pleasant to NOT be able to brew a cup of caffeine in the morning, but have to get up, get dressed and go out for coffee. If they fix that, I'd stay there again.

Cozy in DC

Posted 04-May-2015
Pros: Loved the location. 3-4 blocks to nearest metro; White House was within walking distance. Also loved the old world charm of the hotel.
Cons: Not much parking is available outside the hotel as it is located on a busy corner.
Location: Old Ebbitt Grill is always a favorite place to eat.
Great historic hotel - wonderful staff - gracious accommodations. A welcome change from the big-box hotels.

Great location, poor condition

Posted 04-May-2015
Pros: Location and history.
Cons: Wash, bleach, scrub the floors and carpets! They are dirty and stale.
Location: The location is very good - 10-15 min walking distance from most of the memorials, White house, Congress and Smithsonian. Good restaurants nearby!
Hotel has its charms, being the historic hotel from Victorian era with interesting and rich history. It's position is great, within 10min walking distance to the White house and the National mall. Nevertheless, the condition of the hotel is not very good, especially the cleanliness of the hallways, there are stains all over the floors. As you enter the room, there is dingy, stale smell that no hotel room worth 260$ per night should have! Linen and bathroom was clean though.

Good location .

Posted 01-May-2015
Pros: It was cleaning and in the great location to downtown DC.
Cons: Staff to be more aware of the surrounding area, It needs to be more tourist friendly. Real actual breakfast to be served for the price.
Location: 45 minute walk from the Capitol. Downtown shopping.
Room was clean, a bit small. Small television in the center of the room. Staff did not know anything about the area and were not helpful at all as to what is around the hotel. For the price you pay, there is no real breakfast but only continental breakfast style.
