They don’t provide room service during COVID, though competitors do. Same for the bar, it now closes at 10pm, unlike competitors.

3/5 Okay

Traveled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
The hotel is really well located in a safe and quiet area, 5 minutes walking from the White House. The room was clean and spacious, although not great view. Cons: there was a daily fee charge for amenities of 34 dollars, apparently for the internet and 2 bottles of water. They don’t have enough staff, because of Covid they are not going to your room daily (I think for the price, they should clean your room daily). Breakfast is not included, the quality was good but overpriced and the service very slow (again they don’t have enough staff). Overall, I was expecting better service for the price.

Desk staff helpful and friendly. We were able to check in a little early and out a bit late, which helped us to coordinate with our flights without storing bags somewhere.
