          • Older travelers

            Friendly staff Good value Location

            Area behind beds had not been cleaned in a while. In addition to dust, there was a used tissue. Most people probably don't check. We do.

          • Family with children

            It says free breakfast and free-parking but actually you can only choose one of them. However the staff are very friendly. Generally it is excellent

            This was a one night say with my son on Spring break. Great location, cost effective, close to public transportation. Very quiet and clean. I would stay there again.

            Excellent location-2 blocks to a major Metro station, equipped mini kitchen, clean spacious suite. All requests were met quickly and pleasantly by all staff members.

            The location is very convenient and is still very quiet.

            The carpet is aging. Better to replace it soon.

            Convenient. Close to Kennedy Center. Close to Georgtown. Metro. Only spent the nite and was very comfortable!!

            • Average rating
          • Family with children

            Room was very nice and bed was very comfortable. Staff is very friendly. Hotel is super-convenient, being only two blocks from Foggy Bottom Metro stop and walking distance to many restaurants.

            One small improvement would be to provide plastic utensils, since a refrigerator is provided (would make it easier to make use of meal left-overs).

            • Average rating
          • Family with children

            Excellent location, close to subway station, university and Lincoln Memorial. Quiet area. Large rooms, good Italic-American restaurant, excellent breakfast ($15 + taxes). Good Internet connection. Parking available ($35 + taxes).

            I had to ask to have my room made up.

            • Average rating
          • Family with children

            The hotel was in a great location, close to the Foggy Bottom metro and with a whole foods grocery nearby. The room was large, with fridge and microwave. We would recommend and go back again.

          • Family with children

            We loved staying on the edge of the George Washington University campus with close proximity to the White House and easy access to other parts of the city. Students were a good resource and fount of information for out-of-town visitors.

            • Average rating
          • Group of friends

            Hotel was clean, comfortable and well appointed. The staff was the best I've ever seen in a hotel. We were four adults in a suite so we had to use the sleeper-sofa (very uncomfortable), but the rest of the accomodations exceeded our expectations. The hotel was less than a block away from the blue line metro station. There is a Safeway, CVS, and a nice liquor store in the Watergate Shops about a block south and a 7-eleven half a block north. The parking is valet only with space on-site for perhaps six vehicles.

            It was more comfortable to sleep on the floor rather than the sleeper sofa. The plumbing was tempramental, but worked.

            • Average rating
          • Group of friends

            Excellent location, very comfortable. We had to make a booking at short notice and were lucky to get a very reasonable price. We would have stayed longer if possible.
