Aging hotel extremely convenient. Why is it more than a Marriott or similar? DK. Friendly service. Taxis took up guest arrival parking, minor annoyance. Oldest continually operated hotel in DC. Front desk helpful with directions. Parking a short walk away- extra $23.

DC HotelIt was a very nice hotel. I enjoyed my stay. My only complaints are the floors were a marble sort and very cold, AND there was no valet parking for my car and it was not very easy to get reasonable parking. Other than that it was a pleasant stay. The room was clean and the staff was helpful.
