                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.

                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).

                I had to ask to have my room made up.

                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.

                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.

                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.

                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.
