    We were there to tour around DC, and the location of this hotel was just perfect. They have a very nice staff, the room was fine, the food was good -- we were pleased with all. We'll definitely stay there any time we go to DC.

    location is great if you're going to visit the Mall and the musea around it (and even downtown is not so far away), everything is within walking distance of the hotel; metro access is located nearby (Enfant Plaza) as well as the Metrobus 5A that takes you from Dulles International Airport to downtown Washington DC; There is a Starbucks next to the hotel, a CVS super market just down the road as well as other places where you can get something to eat (no restaurants though) if you don't want to stay and eat at the hotel.

    Location: the hotel is situated nearby a railway station; this maybe a (bit) noisy, especially at night, depending on the side your room is.

    Very close to museums, A5 statin to airport, metro, and station of hip hop city tour bus. Efficient service.

    Relativly Far from night live regions of the city and shoping region of the city. Noise from street at room in the mornings.

    The staff was accommodating when I asked for a room with two double beds instead of a room with one double.

    The court yard out back was littered with leaves and the pool was not open. We were hoping for a view of the capitol from the 9th floor.

    Great place to stay. Everything was ok. The stuff of the hotel is very efficient. Best one for its price.

  • Older travelers

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your Hotel. It will definately be our destination on our next visit to the Capital. The room was great and the proximity to the National Mall could not be better. The best part was the 21st Amendment cafe for drinks and dinner after a long day of sight-seeing. Thankyou.

  • Group of friends

    Excellent location to The Mall and Smithsonian museums. Nearby choices for breakfast and lunch. Very close to Metro.

    Not a lot of nearby choices for dinner.

    The location is fantastic in regards to all the sights and museums visitors to city would want to see, 80% within walking distance. Just a few blocks to Capitol.Note from Capitol to Lincoln memorial down the National Mall is 2 miles, so judge your walking abilities accordingly.The use of Metro system right around corner of building made it great for getting to and from airport with luggage in tow, avoiding the need for a cab because of luggage.You can get anywhere in city within minutes from this location. Starbucks right down stairs w/ access from inside hotel. On & Off tour bus kiosk right in Lobby for those who want to save on walking, stops at all major sites and makes getting around all of DC VERY EASY. The company even has wheelchair rental right there.This is a very good idea as buses around city are rather difficult to find as are any schedules or maps for bus routes and the cabs can be expensive if used from site to site. The owner Casey and her husband are gems and very helpful, very good people. :) On site store for patrons which carry just about anything you need from a snack to luggage or for a quick gift without having to go to a museum shop. Two restaurants on site are nice to have after long day of sight seeing as there are not many establishments in the area. Along the same block of the front of the hotel, there are a few fast food places.( most close by 8:00 pm.if not earlier) But if you'd like a cocktail or sit down meal you'll be thankful for the Holiday Inn! CVS just a couple doors down. Great room darkening curtains if you decide not to get up early.You will not see a crack of sunlight. Numerous housekeepers per floor so rooms are done relatively early and efficiently. If you do not want a housekeeper early, I suggest putting the tag on the door until you are ready.Not once did we come back around noon and our room was not done yet.It was nice. Shower heads are great as is water pressure and we were on 7th floor.

    Handicapped door operation I hope will be checked daily now as we had two days of waiting for a helpful passers by. We set a/c for 68 at night, a little cold ,for in the wee hours of a.m. it seemed too warm and almost muggy in room.We attributed this to maybe the cool temps at night verses warmer in day 80's and the a/c even started blowing warm air about 5:00 a.m.
