Elegant but cozy hotel

Posted 19-Aug-2014
Pros: Old world charm. Had a nice little bar and dining room.
Location: Centrally located in downtown DC.
A pretty room with a good bed, thoughtful touches, and nice amenities. Great little boutique hotel for the price!.

Classic style in good location

Posted 17-Aug-2014
Pros: Location, price and room.
Cons: Nothing
Location: Starbucks one block away. Circulator bus stop on block away. Three metro stations within 5mins.
This is our second stay here and once again it lived up to expectation. Great service. Early check in. Plenty of complimentary water in the room, speedy wifi and early early morning check out. Will definitely stay there again.

Excellent front desk service. Room nicely decor.

Posted 17-Aug-2014
Pros: Service, location, quiet of the room, complementary water bottle, newspaper and wifi.
Cons: Have they our company of reliable taxis
Location: Union station, Capitol, National Mall.
Great service, decor as expected.... Vintage, Washington style, beautiful! Kind of close to the union station and Capitol. For sure I stay again here. Sadness was they got a taxi, not from the hotel, for me and my daughter. They chaffer did not help us with our luggage and kept our change but whatever, you always find bad service on and off at anyplace.

An oasis of calm, beauty and comfort.

Posted 11-Aug-2014
Pros: Everything
Cons: Front desk staff could be more friendly.
Location: Monuments, mall, restaurants and bars are all within a 15 minute walk
I stayed at the Henley Park for three days while attending a conference at the Washington Convention Center, which is located a block away. The hotel was convenient to everything-the mall, monuments, museums. There is a great variety of restaurants within walking distance to suit every budget. The rooms are hallways are small along the scale of most European hotels but the room had luxury bedding and was very, very clean and updated. The staff were friendly (the door men more so than the front counter staff). The food was excellent and reasonable so no real need to venture out unless you want to. As a single woman this hotel was an excellent choice-I felt safe, pampered and appreciated. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who appreciates historic atmosphere versus more modern amenities. There is a small fitness room but no pool.

Quaint European charm ambience

Posted 10-Aug-2014
Pros: Charm, quiet, relaxing, authentic and nostalgic rather than plastic. Not ostentatious, but certainly refined.
Cons: Flat screen TV remote was complicated.
Location: You can't get closer to more museums, restaurants, parks, monuments and sites anywhere else
Nestled in the bustling World Capital, just steps from the seat of the American Empire's powerful wheels of deliberation and ruling, this is a quiet, traditionalist quaint, and cozy lodging for travelers, across from and surrounded by sleek, sparkling gigantic mega-hotels with the modernist flavor amenities. Easy access to many wonderful restaurants, museums, and sites. The d├ęcor is tasteful and not gauche, perhaps worn like fine old leather or antique tapestries, but clean, tidy, and completely reassuring. The bar is unremarkable but certainly sufficient. My only complaint is that I'm not sure I figured out how to master the flat-screen TV remote control in my room, but that may well have been my own foible.

Okay hotel but it's not as close as they make it seem to the White House. "Within walking distance" The fitness facility is not at all what it appears to be in the pictures. I would recommend staying 2 blocks closer into town with the price I paid.

Old charm

Posted 05-Aug-2014
Cons: We were on the 6th floor & could still hear alot of siren noise during the night. Being country folk we are accustomed to quiet time during our sleep
An older building updated with modern facilities. The rooms were spacious, had nice beds and chairs that were very clean.
