We stayed for 10 days in December 2016 and were upgraded to a large Wow suite with a stupendous view. The staff was friendly and helpful and the location convenient. There is a rooftop bar with great views. Consider staying below the top floor because it can get boisterous on the roof at night. Overall, a marvelous stay.

A couple of hundred metres from the Whitehouse and close to to all the major shops. It's slightly weird in that in an attempt to be hip they play loud-ish music in the lobby but most of the guests are over 40. Breakfast was massive but poor quality for the price. I'm Australian so we expect everything to be fresh... More

Great hotel in DC, closest to the White House. This hotel has so much character, it's almost like stepping into a hip LA hotel. This is my go-to hotel of choice when visiting DC. Top-notch service, upon arrival I was greeted with champagne. The roof-top bar is also so much fun at night. POV lounge is also great. I rented... More
