Clean, but loud

Posted Jan 31, 2015
The room was clean, but the blinds didn't block out all of the light and there were constant sirens. Not entirely something they can control, but still made my stay difficult. No coffee or breakfast or sufficient dining options. Good for a very quick trip.

Convenient and great staff.

Posted Jan 26, 2015
I honestly wasn't expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised. It was very convenient, clean and the staff was incredibly pleasant and helpful. The underground parking felt very safe and secure. The rooms were large and comfortable and nicely decorated. It was very quiet. I was amazed when I got up the next morning and discovered that most of the floor was inhabited by teenagers on a school trip. I never heard a peep! I will definitely stay here again!

Cons: it is an older property but the value and the service, when combined from being close to all of the places to see in DC makes it a good value.
I checked in late and everything was ready for me with no wait. The service was excellent. The room was a very good value and was a much larger room than expected. Checkout was fast and efficient.

1960s Hotel kept in better than good condition

Posted Jan 25, 2015
We stayed three nights. The 1967 "vintage" hotel is close to all the downtown sites. We were impressed with its functionality, cleanliness and friendly staff. There was the smell of "old" smoke in the hallways - from years gone by - which I know cannot be removed - ever - but the hotel itself is non-smoking now - clean - and the rooms smelled fine - big TV - nice shower - clean linens - better than basic - very workable. There were a few miner fixes needed in my room, but nothing outstanding - the staff probably didn't even know anything needed attention because the items I noticed were miniscule, and I am pretty picky. All in all, it was GOOD - and the morning buffet was QUITE NICE. What I enjoyed most was the attitude of the staff. They were friendly, prompt, and made guests feel very much at home. I would definitely feel fine about staying there again. A Five Star hotel it is not, but it was everything I needed - AND - the price was pretty reasonable for my meager budget. I am not disappointed in any way. Good stay. Thumbs up.

Nice hotel

Posted Jan 23, 2015
Nice hotel, pretty close to the Capitol and National Mall. Accessible parking, restaurant on-site and a nice lobby that includes a mini-store where you can buy necessary items/snacks. Overall, a good hotel. Would definitely recommend. Only con: no mini-fridge in room.

Lapidus time capsule

Posted Jan 22, 2015
Pros: The skyline from The Skyline
Cons: Wallpaper in the lobby has to go!
Location: Nationals Stadium Less than $10 cab ride to the Capitol. Good McDonalds across the street. That's important since hotel only serves breakfast.
This was my return visit to the Skyline, I would not have returned if I did not enjoy my previous visit. This mid century modern Walter Lapidus designed hotel is a real throwback to the 1950's. Its worth a visit just for that. But in addition, it has a good location that is getting better all time time -- and a very guest orientated staff.

Mostly great

Posted Jan 21, 2015
Cons: Two suggestions: tell customers when restaurant not open. We planned to go there, and found out it was closed too late to plan another option other
Location: Library of Congress was the main reason we stayed there. But your website said it was 0.3 miles away, and it was about 0.8 miles away.
Room clean and comfortable. Staff friendly and helpful.

Staff was Excellent

Posted Jan 21, 2015
We got there a few hours before check-in time. The staff were great to let us check our bags and go out for lunch. The McDonalds across the street is great for lunch and breakfast. The Navy Yard Metro station is very close--so easy to get around in the city. We used the morning shuttle to go to the White House and spent the day walking around the Mall, monuments, etc. Shuttle staff were very nice. Room was very clean and comfortable. We would go to this hotel again.
