Although the room was large, clean and there was a good bed and shower, the facility was not in as good condition as the price would indicate. The service depended on the individual serving. The parking area was very convenient, and cost $40 per night.

Impressed by size of room (given that it was a boutique hotel) and the lack of noise (given that it is located in heart of farragut/foggy bottom). They were great about holding my girlfriend's and my bags after we checked out, and Manny was helpful and friendly in returning them.

There were many good things to say about this hotel. The location was excellent....about 10-15 minute walk to White House. Hotel staff was polite, pleasant, and very helpful. The room was spacious and so very clean with comfortable beds as well as a comfortable sofa. The only thing that could have used some minor repairs were the bathroom faucets. Both...

Great location close to the direct line to Union Station and Buses. Spacious and clean room. Bed confortable but a bit too soft for me. The hotel provide free coffee in the lobby but Iwould appreciate a kettle in the room. Friendly staff, free bike ! Unfortunately no breakfast, but you'll find evrything closeby.
