First, the positives: 1. Staff - every staff member was polite, welcoming, helpful. 2. Grand old Llbby, well-maintained; apples and coffee a nice touch. 3. Location is excellent (if that's where you need to be) - quick walk to Dupont Circle, 4 stops on the metro, drugstore and restaurants nearby. Next, the less-than-positives. 1. Rooms are Dreary!! Hues: brown, gray,...

Its a very classy hotel; service is attentive at all times and the installations really do conserve the atmosphere or eras gone by in American History. The decor is sort of art deco mixed with classical, very interesting. Food and beverage really nice. Hotel is located at an extremely convenient area of the city. We were able to walk to...

The Hotel is perfectly situated for most of the tourist sites of DC and although the decor is a little dull, the service and accommodation more than make up for it. Easy check-in service and great Concierge who book all restaurants and give good advice as to how to fill your days. Reasonably priced breakfast although no coffee machines or...

Great hotel with a great central location, hotel has been remodeled and the beds are comfortable, rooms a little small but it is a old hotel. Great Lobby and downstairs bar, very close to the metro and walking distance to White House and the Mall,highly recommend.

As Marriott gold members, we were upgraded to an executive room on the top floor (10th floor). The room has a king bed and a separate sitting area. While the bed is comfortable, the...
