Beautiful historic hotel near the red line

Posted Oct 27, 2014
Pros: The fact that it is historic and document the history in displays. The focus on water conservation. The Neighborhood.
Cons: One of the elevators had a little bit of an issue - with a large group it stalled. We chose to take the stairs.
Location: The zoo, variety of restaurants, and Rock Creek Parkway. One metro stop north of Dupont Circle.
We enjoyed the architecture and the decor of the historic hotel. The nearness to a variety of excellent restaurants and the metro made it great for adventures into the city and relaxing evenings.

Great Hotel & Location, beautiful & historical.

Posted Oct 23, 2014
Hotel was older, but beautifuly restored and had a great history, especially of famous visitors. The lobby was very grand and classical including all the amenities one could need/want (bar, restaurant, computers, conceierege, etc.). Our room was very clean and maintained throughout our stay (towels and bedding). Hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. Taxis are always available, and the metro is a very close walk, taking you to all the national attractions. I would highly recommend this hotel to family and friends.

Large vintage hotel, modernized, in great location

Posted Oct 18, 2014
Cons: This hotel, like most, advertises a price that is lower than the price they actually charge. All should include the predictable taxes.
They gave me a very large room with a view of Rock Creek Park and took excellent care of me. The gym is outstanding. Location is the reason I chose it - lots of trees, restaurants nearby, and two blocks to the Metro.

Fabulous Hotel with superb service

Posted Oct 8, 2014
Pros: It has the best service. The staff really seemed to care that you had the best possible experience.
Cons: Nothing
Location: It is on the Metro line so it is near everything. There are a couple of very good restaurants within easy walking distance. The Zoo is also nearby.
This was a wonderful place to stay. It's right at a metro stop which puts everything into easy reach, including the museums and monuments. Good restaurants and fun establishments are within walking distance. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. the Concierge staff was extremely well informed and very pleasant to talk with. They had suggestions for how to get around to regular tourist destinations and ideas for places that appealed to us that we would not have known about. I know we will make it our destination again soon.
