I wasn't impressed from the start because of the proximity of the bar, shabby appearance of the entryway and extremely old elevators. Then, at the front desk, I was given a keycard to a room that was already full of someone else's belongings - an iPad, suitcase and shoes, all out in the open. While I know mistakes happen, the...

I chose the hotel based on price. So had to figure it would be off the beaten track, and not terribly luxurious. It was indeed both of these. It was several blocks beyond George Washington U, way up 22nd Street, and the carpets were tawdry. What was most unusual about the hotel, however, were the bars on both the ground...

We stayed here for four nights to allow us to visit the sights in Washington. The Hotel position is very handy, a short walk from Dupont circle and the metro. Plenty restaurants nearby and the Hotel offers food and a huge selection of Beers from its two famous Bars where there is regular entertainment. The Hotel is adequate for a...

We booked this place thinking it was a regular hotel but when we arrived we found out it was a pub with a couple of different bars and that it also offered accommodation. The room was pleasant enough but it overlooked the bar entrance - unfortunately we stayed on a Friday and Saturday night so we were disturbed by a...

My partner and I stayed here while on our US holiday.... After some bad hotels in other cities, we didn't have great hopes for this place.... But we were proven wrong. The hotel was clean, neat, tidy and easily accessible for Ubers and taxis. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the bar downstairs was definitely a winner for...

I was 100% satisfied with this hotel. It is true that it is not new, but it is fully updated and very clean. The bed was very comfortable. It is a very safe location and just a few blocks from a Metro station. The room had a flat screen tv with plenty of channels. Very friendly and helpful staff. There...

Stayed here for four nights. I walked everywhere from here to see the mall, ford's theater, the white house, Capital building and restaurants. Two days i walked over 13 miles one day 10. The hotel is a little on the funky side. I was out every morning by 6:00 am and never returned until 7:00 pm. For what I needed;...

I was a little nervous about this place as it does have some negative reviews. When I arrived, I was still unsure as it did appear to be an old building, creaky stairs and probably the oldest elevator I have ever used... But... Don't let that fool you, the room was spotless! And believe me, I like it clean. It...

Just ok hotel for a night's stay, crampy, very small rooms, elevator is shabby, stairs are cramped, not even a microwave on each floor, location is ok but not great and also a bit costly for the price you pay but I guess in DC all hotels are like this.
