We arrive after a long day in Washington. On the internet they said they had valet parking. No, you need to park on the street and it is very busy, so they recommend you a public parking for $35 for park overnight, but then you need to leave at 8am, if you leave later they charge an extra fee of...

Location and price were good for us. But: 1) After my debit card was declined, a concierge at the reception wanted me to pay by cash exactly the amount of reservation. She said that staff may not give me a change or to get from me more money, even a dollar. The concierge advised me to go somewhere to exchange...

I had a prepaid reservation which I had to cancel, much to my disappointment. The manager of the group has been extremely kind and helpful, going above and beyond the call and assisting me to get a refund. If I ever get the chance to go to Washington, I'm definitely staying here.

The hotel building is from 1912. For $71 we got a very decent , quiet small room, located toward the back of the building on the 4th floor. They have a complimentary Wifi, good near the front desk, but spotty inside the room. They offer a $5 per person breakfast but we didn't purchase it. Furniture and carpets are old...

This was a bad hotel. It's more a hostel. Room was incredibly small, it was noisey. You could hear every movement someone else made in any other room. The bed was uncomfortable and noisy. There was no in room fridge and the hot water took several minutes to kick in. The room had a TV but the remote control hardly...

This boutique hotel is located not far from Dupont Circle and is an easy commute to the National Mall. It is walking distance from the trendy restaurants on U Street. Parking was not an issue for me, and the S2 bus stops on the next corner. Everything from carpets to couches shows signs of wear, but everything is clean. I...

Where do you start with this hotel. Accommodation in Washington is expensive but there is better hotels. The good points: - the hotel is located in a good area on a leafy street with restaurants on 17th street. Also about 4 blocks to Dupont metro station and more good restaurants. - The rooms were clean. The bad points - gentleman...

This is a nice hotel in a safe area. Smallish rooms (by American standards), but we didn’t mind too much as the rooms were very clean. The rooms have a wardrobe, desk, chair and aircon but there was no fridge or safe. The staff were pleasant and helpful. There are no tea/coffee making facilities in the room, however, tea coffee...
