Room was not clean. Trash from prior guest was scattered on the desk. Floors were not swept/vacuumed. There was less than half a roll of toilet paper in the bathroom without a replacement back up roll.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The property was very close to the national mall. Literally in walking distance. The staff was very helpful. The Wharf was also in walking distance. The only thing i didn't like was there was no bellhop and i still have not received my bill from checkout even though Joseph promised to email it to me five days ago when I checked out, but i would definitely stay at the hotel on my next visit to DC.
