Perfect location within walking distance of everything we wanted to do. Loved the onsite dining options and the history of the hotel is unique. You should expect that it is a historical hotel and the rooms are to the period in which it was built.

The staff was exceptionally friendly and went out of their way to make us comfortable. Despite the small size of the room, it was very functional and efficient and also modern. Convenient to Metro and only a few short stops most attractions. I would definitely stay at the POD again.
