great hotel but terrible business center

Posted Aug 16, 2015
Pros: LOVED the bed.
Cons: Business center
Location: excellent location and close to the Metro with good restrauants
Since I was only traveling 2 nights figured I would use the business center computer instead of bringing my laptop. Big mistake. The center was pricey and the computer's software was so out of date the my email portal, bank and airline websites would frequently not open and if they did would be so slow to load and move through the pages for me to work. I spent 3x as much on the computer rental as necessary. It was terrible and frustrating.

Best place to celebrate!!!!!

Posted Aug 15, 2015
Pros: The room was comfortable and nicely designed.
Location: The Phillips Collection art Museum is 2 blocks away. Had a fabulous dinner at i Ricchi.
Had to cancel a 2 week trip to Europe to celebrate my 60th birthday because of a important business situation. The hotel was amazing. Quatina Rosser checked us in and made sure we had a great experience. She had 2 glasses of champagne sent to our table at the restaurant and a bottle on ice waiting at our room when we returned. The hotel was very charming and the staff friendly. Cole porter playing in the background at breakfast. Made my day.

Convenient Location

Posted Aug 10, 2015
This is a nice hotel. However, WiFI is not included. I also found that breakfast was 20 usd per person and think is a better idea to have breakfast at any of the great bearby coffee shops. There are similar hotels in the area that include wifi and breakfast within the same price range.

Nice Hotel within 5minutes walk from Dupont Circle

Posted Aug 10, 2015
Pros: Location and room
Location: Central location. you can walk to white house in 30 minutes.
The hotel is very clean and gives a good feel. The room was of good size and clean. The fitness center was good too with good machines and lot of weights and 24 hour access. The hotel is very centrally located at Dupont circle, so lot of eating options and bars etc with 5-10 minutes of walk. Overall a very nice hotel. Enjoyed my stay

Excellent--except driver who took us to airport got lost and a little flustered when needed to take detour due to road work.

Great location near DuPont Circle

Posted Aug 7, 2015
Cons: Bathrooms aren't great

Great location, Beautiful view

Posted Aug 5, 2015
Location: Dupont Circle, restaurants, embassy row
Very close to Dupont Circle, the metro, several restaurants and embassies. Staff kept stressing that we had the best room, but it was a big room with a great view of the National Cathedral. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The only drawback was that our room was not ready on time for normal check-in despite a request for early check-in.
