“Great Hotel for business or weekend getaway”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

Staff were very friendly and helpful. Atmosphere very calm and serene. Rooms and facilities clean. Quiet neighborhood on weekends (during the day). Close to many attractions. Great restaurant/bar on 2nd floor. Night club across the street if you are into clubs. All around one of the best stays in the area for that price range. Wasn't overpriced. Beds were a little firm. Offers Free Wi-Fi in rooms and in lobby, always a plus.

Room Tip: Stayed in the Evolution room (King) basic room pretty big enough space for friends or clients for a...

Our family (my husband, I and our 2 kids) spent a Christmas vacation in this hotel.
We quite enjoyed staying there. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We found a reasonable price on kayak site – around 90$ including all taxes.
There is a big grocery store in the same building that sells prepared food as well.
Metro station is located in 2 minutes walking from hotel, and US capitol is just one metro station from the hotel.

I booked this hotel for a 2 day trip with two 8 year olds. It is close to Union Station, we actually walked from there having come by train from NYC. It is brand spanking new (google map still shows a construction site) and has everything you could possibly need. The rooms are large, they gave us two heavenly queen beds for one adult and two children. Everything feels like you are the first person to use it. The style is modern and classy. There is fast wifi, a nice tv, a fridge and microwave in the room. No minibar, which I appreciated, because the kids would just take stuff. Somebody stated here that it was noisy, I disagree, we had a totally quiet and dark room. It was also an incredible bargain. The crowd was a mixture of families and unassuming normal people.

This hotel was great. We've stayed here for 4 nights to explore Washington DC. The rooms are spacious and very clean. You have your own microwave and fridge (just a little bit noisy). There is an indoor swimming pool and fitness center, free to use. You can wash and dry your laundry in the machines (a dollar each and a dollar for soap). Free coffee and tea to go in the morning. The staff was correct.

We don't agree with the comments made about the neighbourhood in earlier reviews. The hotel is only 3 to 4 minutes away from the subway station. 3 stops and you are in the city center. It wasn't a unpleasant or unsafe walk for us. On the corner of the street is a supermarket (Harris Teeter), open until midnight, so you never walk alone. We took a SuperShuttle from/to the airport for 40 $ (around 30 euro's)

Washington isn't a bubbly city (like NYC or Frisco) but good for (American) history lovers. We did the standard/common stuff (White House, Capitol, etc.) The Mall is getting renovated, so no water in the pool only construction workers. We loved Georgetown for shopping and the Eastern Market on a Saturday. Try the pizza's and mini hamburgers at Matchbox. Zaytinya is a good restaurant too. Cupcakelovers can't miss the Red Velvet Bakery.
