Amazing hotel! Large room with lots of space, various amenities and very clean. We were very well taken care of by mr. Milan at the concierge. The prices of the fridge and breakfast could be more reasonable. I hope to come back.

« Disappointing Property »

The location is awesome. I had expectations of a grand hotel, but was very disappointed with the physical plant. The lobby is a hallway. The ceilings are low. The rooms are nice but in no way special. The restaurant is not open in the evening. Service at the front desk always seemed a bit slow.

Lisa Families - 12/06/2019 AccorHotels certified review
« Average for an older hotel run by a high-end brand »

Our stay was fairly pleasant though the hotel overall felt rather small and dim. Our second floor "courtyard view" room had a view directly into the windows of a neighboring office building 10 feet away. The room itself was nice with a very comfortable bed and linens and the bathroom in particular was nicely remodeled though I wish the exhaust fan had actually worked. It took three requests and 18 hours for a mini-fridge to be provided. The mandatory $25/night resort fee is silly in a hotel and location like this though since all it covers are standard amenities like wi-fi, newspapers and a small gym. Valet parking is $65/night so I found an alternative for less than half that price at a garage half a block away. These all fall under the category of "first world problems" but as I know many people pay significant rates to stay here (2 of my 3 nights were free thanks to hotels.com rewards), they were noteworthy.

« A great place to stay. »

It has been many years since I was last in Washington D.C. I have always stayed, and will continue to stay, at this hotel when not required otherwise. The hotel and staff are outstanding. My only "complaints", if you could call them that, are minor. First, since last there it appears the bar area and restaurant have been remodeled. While the new version is extremely well done and will appeal to many, I prefer old hotels and I preferred the prior incarnation of these two areas. Second, the restaurant while still very good did not live up to what I recall of it, though I admit that memory lies and the more so as time passes.

Service was very good. Excellent, I would say. Fourth floor room location with a view of a wall was not great. 6a garbage pick up was also not awesome. Room was fine. Comfortable and big enough. AC was great. Would have preferred more comfortable chairs.
