Booked.net travelerWrite a ReviewThe rooms were spacious, the continental breakfast was over priced $12 and a total rip off.
Some find this boutique hotel over the top since it is decked out in a retro 1960s theme. To illustrate this point, leopard-print robes have replaced the traditional white fluffy robe available in most hotels. However, the Pop Art rooms and the bar do attract loyalists who find this offering a fun choice.
- Breakfast was overpriced - Bathroom was spotless - Close to attractions and in a safe neighboorhood
- Valet parking for 24 hours is $27 - Staff were friendly and responsive - Few minutes walk to the white house
- King sized bed was comfortable - Flat screen tv on a swivel stand - Check-in was very easy and friendly
- Internet was slow - Staff is great - There is free internet, which is very nice - Bathroom was small
- Hotel provides a free wine hour for guests - Rooms were spacious - Bed is comfortable - 10 minute walk to a metro
