It was a wonderful stay! The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are very nice. The rooms are well furnished and the beds are very comfortable. As a guest, you feel very pampered with the luxury bedding, bathrobes, and high end toiletries. The location could not be better! Many of Washington’s famous monuments and memorials are a short walk away as well as the majority of the museums.
