We were given a room in a basement apartment. We had to enter through a locked gate via a bird poop covered “courtyard”. There were no refreshments in the evening as advertised and breakfast was some toast and her boiled eggs. The manager was the best part of the stay

This was such a special place. The history was very interesting. The staff went out of their way to accommodate our need to change rooms. Every morning breakfast was so nice. I can't say enough good things about the staff. It was southern hospitality in DC. We will return.

A beautiful building built in 1883 and a piece of history. It was a beautiful place to stay. A huge mansion. If you like that old vibe this is the place for you. We had a nice relaximg time. Our room had a terrace which was nice. The view from the terrace was not, but then again its in downtown DC. I booked the room called, The Shanghideaway, but was placed in The Jennifer Green room. Not the vibe I was looming for, but the terrace made up for it. During our exploration of the mansion, we found there is no such room. It was advertised falsly. Since we stayed during COVID, no staff were present, the kitchen was off limits and thats where the microwave was. Good thing it is next to many eateries. We paid for breakfast with our package and it was not worth it. In the small fridge in the room they placed, clementines (that were moldy), an orange, 2 orange juices, 6yogurts (out of date), and some kind of homemade bread that did not look right. We did not eat any of rhe breakfast there. Plus, there were two of us, any only 2 juices for two nights? We had to go out and buy breakfast anyway. Beeakfast should not be an option at this time as the buffet that is normally offered is not due to staff not being present. Over all we had a good stay as we were there for us and we got to spend a lot of time for us.
