We stayed here because it was "downtown" in DC, but everything is downtown in DC, and the price was supposedly discounted from $850/night to $250/night, and it was a Marriott property, so as a rewards member I would get points. The lobby is a wonderful peaceful oasis, with places set aside for reading, chatting, or meditating. The rooms, however, are...

Very large and clean hotel. Our room was large and sunny and the bathroom a 4/5 for cleanliness. The beds were really comfy. We stayed here on a Friday to go to a show at the Verizon Center, which was within walking distance. Many food choices nearby as you are on the cusp of Chinatown. We ate at an Fado's...

Stayed here for 3 nights for a conference. The hotel was located close to conference center and many great restaurants and shops. We walked to the smithsonian art museum (free admission) and to the White House. A longer walk to the national mall but doable. The hotel was nice enough to provide umbrellas when it rained. The rooms were on...

Excellent location! Will definitely stay again. Valet parking onsite is ~$50/night, but beats having to drive around forever looking for a parking lot. Beautiful lobby with a hopping bar! Walking distance to Verizon Center and all the restaurants in Penn Quarter/Chinatown

We had an excellent room during this stay. However, we were not pleased to be awakened at 6:45 am by maintenance workers using a leaf blower to clean off the courtyard area, which was right below our window. This isn't very considerate of guests. Otherwise, the staff was excellent!

I was a bit disappointed with the room itself - a little dated, a little grimy. Very noisy hall noise which I believe stems from the fact that there is tile flooring in hall and in the entry of the room and a full inch of daylight under the door so basically no sound barrier from the hall. I wasn't...

Best location to stay in DC. Walk to restaurants, shops and museums. You don't need a car, but if you drive in, the hotel offers in and out parking privileges for a flat rate. Rooms are spacious and staff are very pleasant and accommodating. Will not stay anywhere else when we visit DC again!

I stayed here recently while attending a meeting at the Convention Center. It's ideally located for that, as it's just across the street. The staff are friendly and efficient. The lobby is attractive. A small Starbucks and convenience market are helpful in the AM, as there are few places offering breakfast nearby. Wireless internet was fast. The rooms are modern...

My favorite hotel in DC. It has a great gym, lounge, restaurants and it is close to Chinatown. The staff remember you from stay to stay. Parking is tight but they are efficient and work hard to keep up with the pace.
