Excellent but very pricey. Its all about location. The mall is almost right across the street. Coin operated laundry. Free internet (fast too). Very comfortable beds. Good business center. Front desk sent my 16 page fax for free. Love this hotel but be prepared to pay for all this goodness.

Attended a meeting at the hotel and found everything ship shape and very comfortable. Rooms were clean and spacious, food was handy and served quickly. A little pricey but hey - you are in Washington, DC.

Great location and just across the street from the US Graduate (federal) based training facility. CVS and Starbucks are the only other close retail establishements as this in a a federal business type district.

The remodel of the guest rooms is superb! We just returned from 6 nights spent there and the facility is gorgeous. The location is perfect, and while there's a lack of entertainment and dining choices in a area after dark, the hotel's dining areas worked well if we didn't want to use a cab to go elsewhere. Only a short...

Please don't pay attention to reviews that are from more than a couple months ago. This hotel just had an extensive renovation and is absolutely gorgeous. (Well, we did go up to the roof for a cool view of the capitol, and the pool has decidedly NOT been renovated yet.) The location is quite an enigma because it is close...

THe Pros: The location is perfect if your intent is to explore the National Mall and surrounding areas on foot - The National Air & Space museum was actually a 3 minute walk.

I booked this hotel on hotel.com and was very pleased with the hotel. Newly renovated, modern, clean and the staff were very friendly. So close to the National Mall, two short blocks away. Got an amazing price for the room, cheaper than the Best Western we stayed at in Woodbrige, 20 minutes outside of the Capital.

We chose this hotel because we wanted to be able to walk to the Smithsonian and other attractions and it was perfect for this! The cab ride for two from Reagan Airport was less than expected (about $15), we were welcomed by the front desk and immediately helped with maps and information. Our room on the 8th floor was small...
