          • Older travelers
            9.2

            It was withing walking distance of the major attractions and the underground parking was convenient, if not expensive.

            There was not much choice of restaurants in the immediate area.

          • Single
            7.0

            breakfast, room facilities, swimming pool; close to museums

            pricey; no nightlife in the area; starbucks closes at 6pm, cvs closed on sundays

          • Family with children
            6.6

            Staff was nice- room once we got double bed room was nice. Room was clean. Location to sights was very convenient.

            We felt the hotel overall was fine, but the restaurant with the buffet could have much better for the price. It would be nice if there were some additional dining options close by. Exercise room was difficult to find. Pool area was only ok. We are from midwest and overall cost seemed high but we realize it was reasonable for the area.

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            Very central to the Washington DC attractions

            It was quite expensive to stay during the week - though looked like good value at weekends (less than half the cost)

          • Couple
            8.2

            Make sure your rate includes breakfast at the restaurant!

          • Older travelers
            6.2

            They are in an excellent place, near the metro anda Smithsonian's air and space museum. Clean and good rooms.

            The front rooms are too near to the train line, too much loud.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            The location of the hotel is superb - we walked to all the major tourist sites.

            There are very limited choices of restaurant nearby.

          • Single
            8.8

            Free wifi, large and clean rooms, bathroom facilities working properly, good information at front desk about local events/attractions/museums.

          • Single
            10.0

            Location near Capital & D. C. sites.

            I felt the breakfast prices in hotel were a bit pricey.

          • Couple
            8.2

            Good location and not to expensive. Near to the subway station, best museum and Capitol.

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            The young man, Kevin, was working the check in desk. He was very pleasant. The room was very comfortable.

            The bar restaurant.

          • Couple
            6.2

            Other than not getting what we paid for, the hotel was at a great location for the sightes we were there to see.

            We did not get the room that we reserved, they said that Booked.net only reserves a room not the room you request. So we got stuck in a very small room on the top floor with one small bed where the "mini fridge we were promised was empty and ratteled all night.

          • Single
            6.2

            The hotel position in Washington: very close to all touristic sites. Near the hotel there is also a grocery, a Starbucks and a couple of take-away.

            The staff members were not always friendly and sometimes maybe too informal. The hotel rooms need renovation.

          • Older travelers
            3.8

            If you want to wake up to the sound of trains - this is the perfect place.

          • Family with children
            9.6

            so close to the smithsonian and subway, free wireless

            high price
