Great location on the wharf! Beautiful Lobby! We had a waterfront room with a balcony overlooking the Potomac. It was a spacious room with a very comfortable bed with nice linens. Enjoyed the rooftop pool and views from the pool deck! Wanted to schedule a massage at the spa, but they were very busy with 2 weddings. All the staff was friendly and helpful! Very nice hotel with great amenities.

Came to Washington to see a concert at the Anthem, a venue right next door to the hotel. We loved our stay here. Super cool new area of DC full of restaurants and shops located right by the river. The staff were super accommodating. We were very happy to get an early check-in. We had daily texts asking if we wanted our room done and the concierge regularly gave excellent recommendations. The Mall is walking distance, but there is also a free SE shuttle that can take you there if you need. Room was spacious and well appointed. Very happy with our stay.

The location on the Wharf was perfect. We felt safe and it was fun to walk around and have dining options/ night life so close. The vibe and view were great in this area. The only con I would mention is that the pool closed too early, and it’s more of an adult pool, not very kid friendly (meaning for teens).
