Newer hotel, comfortable beds, helpful and friendly staff. Very clean. Location is close to downtown and monuments. Downtown is a bit dead these days but I’m sure it would be bustling otherwise. Breakfast grab and go choices are limited but that may change as tourists come back and they can support a better breakfast service. Bathroom counter space is limited and no dresser space for clothes storage. I wish they had a coffee machine in the room. Overall a pleasant stay.

This hotel is an absolutely fantastic option for those looking to stay in DC. The staff made everything seamless for us from check in to check out, and it is a mere 5 to 10 minute walk to the National Mall and a number of fantastic restaurants. Don’t walk, run to the Riggs!
