Recent stayNice hotel, close to Old Town District area. Very clean. The staff was very courteous. Didn't feel that it should be an additional charge of $20.00 to park in the hotel's parking garage.

Very nice spacious suite not just a roomLoved the size and the older updated ambiance!! The size of the room was more like an apartment than a hotel room. Lovely view of Pennsylvania Avenue. I will be back to this hotel the next time I'm in DC.

Great hotel for the price!It was a very nice hotel and the rate was about $50 cheaper than comparable hotels. The room was nice. It's connected to a restaurant you can go to for food which is convenient.

Great place to stay in the Washington DC area.This hotel was excellent. Most of the staff put the needs of the guest first. Facilities were clean and maintained.
