Location,Yes. Amenities, Yes . Service, yes! if you're sensitive to ambulance noise, no!! Hospital ER Near! WILL ALWAYS BE HERE WHEN I COME TO DC!! Walking distance to all the monuments! Uber back though!!
This hotel had a spacious room in a convenient location. It's very near Farragut North and Farragut West so getting around is fairly easy assuming Metro is running (make sure to have multiple ways of checking for alerts on service, I only found out about a Red line turnaround on Twitter, not any of the three apps I had loaded on my phone).
Pros: large room, huge working desk, convenient location
Cons: Single Queen-size bed (not sure if this was my mistake in selection or the only thing they offer), no counters in bathroom, shower is one of those terrible rainfall/rain forest ones where you can't adjust it, move it, or in anyway vary the water pressure.
IMPORTANT: The local neighborhood is very much a business district with restaurants, etc. closing relatively early in the evening and either closing very early or not being open at all on weekends. Also, there are no mid-range choices for restaurants, it's all fast service like Corner Bakery, Dunkin' Donuts or pubs, with a smattering of upper end stuff a few blocks away. Plan accordingly.
The staff was very friendly from the moment I entered. Checking in was quick. The room was small, but I had read that on previous Expedia reviews so I knew that would be the case. Not a problem for me. The only concern was when I went to take a shower and being a handicap shower water ended up everywhere on the floor, and I nearly slipped.
It was a very pretty hotel in a good location. Upon checking in the staff was very helpful. We arrived at 10am and they were able to get us into a room immediately. The rooms were decorated nicely but lacked amenities i.e. No coffee maker or refrigerator.
My daughter and I stayed for 1 night as she danced in the Cherry Blossom Festival. This was our 3rd year in a row attending this event but the first time staying in this hotel. The front desk staff was kind and considerate. The valet parking attendant was efficient and kind (although $42 for 1 night with a room at this price seemed a bit excessive). Unfortunately, the room was not as clean as I would have thought given the 4.5 Star Rating...which is how I based much of my decision when booking the hotel. They did allow for late check out which was WONDERFUL as we needed the opportunity after the parade to freshen up before "hitting the road" back to Virginia.
This is an excellent hotel in a very central location. The room was small but very well decorated and comfy. The bathroom was very modern and cool. Also the front desk was very helpful and friendly. The only negative I can mention is that I was charged a $20 fee per day by the hotel even though I had booked and payed through expedia beforehand.
Pocket Guide: Washington Downtown Washington D.C. Hotels
Downtown DC is awash with culture. The Smithsonian Institution museum complex flanks the National Mall. The Washington Monument bisects the Mall, just south of the White House. Federal agency headquarters house bureaucrats of varying stripes. Moneyed and powerful lobbyists help create (and quash) laws from K Street. Chinatown and the Washington Convention Center lie east of downtown.
