              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.

              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.

              The location is very convenient and is still very quiet.

              The carpet is aging. Better to replace it soon.

            • 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).

            • 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.

            • 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.

              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.

            • 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.

              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.
