Easy to access and convenient for my needs for the weekend in DC. The room was small but totally adequate for my needs. Very clean and quiet. The only small critique is that they are short on amenities. At one point, the ice machine was totally out of ice. I also requested a bottle opener but they didn't have one available (in my experience, many hotels do). However, staff was very friendly and check in/out was very easy.

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
1. There was a serious safety problem. When I came back from outside in the morning and opened the door of the room with my card key, the door was chained from inside. After a few moments of confusion, I noticed that I was on the wrong floor and opened the wrong door. But why my card key could open the door of a different room? 2. Depending on the room, it is extremely dark. In my case there was no light at all around the desk and it was too dark to work at night. 3. I saw some people writing that the hotel did not provide any coffee. You can have coffee and tea in the lobby on the 1st floor, which I found nice, except for that there were a lot of mosquitoes.

This is is a great value for the location and the quality. He also has a classic boutique hotel feel with lots of hardwood and mid century 1900s vibe

Good location to sightsee. Easy access to Metro and buses. Many of sites were within walking distance. Rooms were small, but newly decorated.
