I came to D.C., with a group of friends, for a special exhibit. Getting the reservation was easy. Their web site was pretty simple and straightforward. The hotel is convenient to the Metro and bus lines. Plus, we were able to walk to several nice restaurants and pubs.Check-in

Dear phillygyrl33, Thank you so much staying with us and for sharing your feedback. I am so sorry that we did not communicate with you properly about social hour and other amenities offered here. Additionally, incidental authorizations are common, of course the amount can vary depending on the hotel and location, but my apologizes that you felt this was a con for your stay. I will make sure your housekeeping concerns are addressed as well. I am glad you enjoyed the location, pets, decor and the awesome mattress. I do hope you will give us another try in the future. Sincerely, Tristan H.

My room was excellent, bed so comfortable, great location, charming staff. Hotels usually are not adjusted for women - no mirrors other than in bathroom, no vanity space, etc. This hotel was the opposite of that! Loved the coffee maker in the room. I will definitely stay here

I don't typically write reviews but my disappointment in this hotel warranted one. The room was not cleaned to the basic standards any hotel should have. The sheets were stained, there was some type of sauce stain on the lamp (which is obviously not major), and an empty wine

VATrainer - What a review, you definitely made the most out of your stay which is wonderful. The neighborhood takes great pride in making sure it is clean and safe which we believe adds to our amazing location. A few short blocks out the door and you land right in the middle of the action in Dupont Circle. And yes, the parking package is a great way to take advantage of our rates if you are driving. Our parking rates are competitive but having a car in the city is expensive and aggravating when dealing with the traffic. Looking forward to welcome you for your next stay! Pete

Five blocks, all short, to the Dupont Circle Metro station at Q Street and Connecticut Avenue. Very easy walk. Across the street from Kramer's Books.

"We. Poked a standard king size double which was ok but a bit cramped"
"You can't choose because they don't honor their reservations."
"Ask for a big room!"
"If you want to spend the money, I would only stay in a suite in this hotel, the standard room is not worth it."
