Dear fussysleeperUk, I am glad that at the end of everything you had no problem with your stay. I am sorry about the cigarette smell in the first room. As you might know, we are a total non-smoking hotel. Someone might have smoked in the room not considering the inconvenience this could be for others. Next time you are coming... More

The physical facility has been renovated recently and is very nice. My room was large and well appointed. The best part is the helpfulness of the staff. I would recommend this establishment to anyone looking for a convenient place to stay in the neighborhood of Dupont Circle
