    Slightly Disappointing For The Price

    The service was great, and the lobby was beautiful. Paid a lot for a nice room. It was spacious, beautifully naturally lit, but the couch was stained and the tabletop was pretty much falling off of the base. I expect perfection at that price. That said, if you stay here, add breakfast. Easily the best waffle I’ve ever had.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Very bad experience

    It was so bad, people does not care a guest coming or not. It says there should be welcome wine but was not in the both rooms. Pillow cover was tear out as shown in picture. Bathrooms towels looks very old. put the tag to room service next day but did not done anything, no towel change nothing, no shampoo filled up. This is what to be expected from a 5 star hotel much better in Homewood Suits Hotel.

  • 6.0.Good

    A mixed bag.

    Service was great and location perfect, but...the room was next to the elevator and the bathroom and bedroom were noisy. There was no room service, no turndown, and no breakfast to speak of and no tea in the room. For this we were charged a thirty dollar fee each night. Absurd to pay that much for two bottles of water a night. If COVID has cut down their service, then they need to stop charging “resort” fees. This was for a Jr. Suite, perhaps I should have downgraded to get away from the elevator.

  • 6.0.Good

    The hotel is really well located in a safe and quiet area, 5 minutes walking from the White House. The room was clean and spacious, although not great view. Cons: there was a daily fee charge for amenities of 34 dollars, apparently for the internet and 2 bottles of water. They don’t have enough staff, because of Covid they are not going to your room daily (I think for the price, they should clean your room daily). Breakfast is not included, the quality was good but overpriced and the service very slow (again they don’t have enough staff). Overall, I was expecting better service for the price.

    Desk staff helpful and friendly. We were able to check in a little early and out a bit late, which helped us to coordinate with our flights without storing bags somewhere.
