We stayed here for a long weekend and enjoyed the hotel. Rooms are a good size and location is great (very close to the White House). We had a big frustration one night (AC in room was blowing warm air) and the staff was helpful to the point of giving us another room to sleep in that night. We lost...

Luxury hotel, rooms lovely, spacious & very clean. Only downside was a slight lack of water pressure in the shower. Great location, one block from everywhere - White House, Metro Station, Circulator Bus Route etc. Would recommend.

Came here for a conference and have been pleased with it mainly because of the location. Easy 10 minute walk to the White House. Good space for a medium sized group and the food catered by the hotel has been slightly better than average for gluten free options. Nice bar at LeBar. Cute how the staff greet you en Francaise...

My husband and I stayed for a week here over Thanksgiving. The hotel itself is very well situated and very close to many of the main sights in Washington D.C.

This is an elegant hotel with close walking distance to the Whitehouse. It also has several cafes nearby and a bar with food and restaurant. The service was excellent especially the concierge who offered great advice. A stop for Big Bus tour is just a couple of blocks away. All info from concierge.

This is a very good hotel. It is well located, the rooms are very well appointed, and the service is outstanding. I would highly recommend it for anyone visiting Washington. It makes a great base for visiting the main sites of the city including the Wite House, the monuments and museums.
