    big room, with everything you need (from very clean towels, nice soaps, conditioner.. tv, fully quipped kitchen)...A large comfortable bed, newspaper at your doorstep every day...just perfect

    A little bit expensive, but it worths it; not always a very good wireless internet connection

    The room was big enough with a nice bathroom and a kitchen. 5 minutes walk from the subway station. Pleasant and quiet district.They allowed us to check-in very early in the morning and didn't charge for that.

    The breakfast at the hotel restaurant was poor and no good cafes outside. There was no kettle in the kitchen to boil the water for tea.

    The location can't be beat for Washington, D.C. Close to the Metro and bus; easy to walk to Georgetown. Our room was spacious and the kitchen was nice for morning breakfast. We appreciated the on-site laundry facility as well as the free wi-fi connection. This is one of my favorite Washington hotels.

    The hotel was well located near the Metro, near the Kennedy Center, and a long walk or short cab ride to Georgetown. The staff was friendly, and the continental breakfast was good. I did not use the kitchen but it was a nice amenity.

    hotel staff members were generally very friendly and helpful. convenient location.

    vending machine: water was sold out. From the reaction of the receptionist, I understood that it was nothing surprising.

    Close to Gheorgetown, the M and the Metro station on I. Walking distance to excellent breakfast shops.

    Pretty loud due to truck loading and unloading, staff tried to clean rooms before 8 in the morning

    Very well situated for a trip to DC, lovely area, easy walk into the city to see the sites and also very near a metro for easy travel around Washington. Lovely helpful staff and very accomodating. Free bikes to use and they extended our check out time as we had a late flight.

    The location of this hotel was excellent and the staff very helpful. We upgraded to a Potomac suite for the view and space. Our location on the 5th floor did not have a view but when we asked we were moved to the 8th floor which was excellent. A few serving dishes in the kitchen and a salad bowl would make life easier for those eating in. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a quiet but central location.

    A few more serving dishes in the kitchen would be helpful

    It was close to he Metro and not too far to walk for places of interest. We really like the rural setting lthough it was in a big city.

    The hotel was well located and room size was very good for 2 persons.

    The staff was not very helpfull with directions and sometimes rude with the constumers.

  • Family with children

    We liked the separate kitchen, the windows, the large "rainfall" shower head, the perfect and prompt room service), the delicious restaurant food delivered by room service for about the same price as offered in the restaurant, the Washington Post at our door, and the bed. We fed 5 people (2 guests) a very nice dinner by moving the large desk/table in front of the sofa and using that and the 3 chairs. We had ice from the freezer and dishes for serving the pie and ice cream we added to dinner, for a totally enjoyable and affordable dinner-hosting experience. We cooked our own breakfast, and the staff washed our dishes! The neighborhood is a very nice residential one with a Trader Joe's grocery and restaurants nearby - and a Metro station!
