I stayed here for four night in February 2017. The only problem with the room was that it was in a corner of the hotel facing the Amtrak railway. You could hear the train when it passed by, but it never woke me up. Other than Starbucks, McDonalds and Quizno's, there are not too many restaurants near by, but there...

A few unexpected things: bed mattresses were harder than I would've liked unfortunately. And FEMA was in the basement of the building. (Doesn't really have any bearing on anything. I just thought it was random and interesting). Otherwise, amazing location to all the popular sites: Washington Monument, Capitol, Smithsonian Museums, etc.! It was two blocks away from a Metro stop....

I've stayed here several times, and it's always been very clean, comfortable, and just what I need. The staff is extremely friendly, helpful, and attentive. You can hear trains from some of the rooms. The location is ideal for business or leisure, and a very quick taxi ride from Reagan airport DCA. The on property conference spaces are adequate. The...

This hotel is located in a good location, especially if you're there for attractions. A few places are in walking distance, while others may not be in walking distance, per-say, but still in close range. You can take an Uber and get to most places for under $10. The room was clean and was a decent amount of space. I...

Nothing to complain about except from the price of the parking, but this is the case in Washington. Decent size room, close to the sites, next to the Smithsonian. Did not try breakfast. I opted for the Starbucks right next to it.
