Lovely 'character' hotel in a good location.

Posted 20-Jul-2014
Pros: Style and cleanliness.
Cons: Acoustic barrier (windows)
Location: Excellent - handy to all Washington attractions.
Really enjoyed our stay. Staff made us welcome and were extremely helpful. Only complaint would be the road noise at night - the hotel is on a corner, it does have double glazing but road noise was more than expected for this style of hotel.

Friendly Staff

Posted 14-Jul-2014
Stayed here from July 10-July 13. Booked through Expedia.com. I was supposed to check in late Wednesday, but due to flight delays, I ended up checking in at 10:00 am on Thursday. Staff was extremely friendly. Restaurant/Bar is really nice (live jazz music on Saturday). Rooms are small but very clean (not noisy at all, as others have mentioned). Free wifi, good A/C, in-room safe, refrigerator, coffee maker....The only thing I didn't like was the pillows. They're way too big... but I guess that's a matter of personal preference. Metro stations are a little far, but I enjoy walking, so that worked out great for me. I was able to walk to the National Mall area (again, I enjoy walking!). Plenty of places to eat nearby (Starbucks, Subway, etc.). Overall, a very convenient and safe location. As others have mentioned, the hotel called a private limo service for the ride back to the airport, but it was pretty much the same as the cab ride to the hotel. Quite frankly, it made no difference to me. I would recommend this hotel to mature travelers who appreciate the sort of historic charm this hotel has to offer. I would not recommend for people who are looking for more modern accommodations, swimming pools, nightlife, etc.

I don't like surprice charges.

Posted 14-Jul-2014
Pros: Comfortable bed and great pillows.
Cons: Tell people ahead of time about hidden charges like parking at $39 brefore you book hotel on Expedia.
Location: about 30 minute walk to Washington Monument.
When arrived at the hotel, I found out the parking fee for 24 hours is $39. If you take the small guide for restaurants in the room, the charge is $3.95. Mini-bar expensive so if you want something..take it to your room. Overall, nice place but find another place to park.

Great location

Posted 10-Jul-2014
This hotel was conveniently situated. The decor was a bit outdated yet charming. The bed and pillows were very hard and not my cup of tea. But, the hotel staff were wonderful and professional.

Great location and immensely charming.

The hotel was beautiful inside and out and the staff was amazingly helpful for anything that we needed. The location was amazing, walking distance from a metro station as well as Chinatown (amazing food!). Overall it was a great experience.

Nice and beauty

Really nice staff and cooperated. Calm but the size for the stander room is small so if u want to enjoy your stat I'd recommend a suite. Comparing to the price and the service I'll come back.
