Yes, I would just like to take a moment to let you all know about my stay the weekend of December 5-7, 2013. First of all everyone was very nice and professional.

Unfriendly unwelcoming unhelpful reception staff. Dining room staff the opposite. Very helpful and very friendly. Nice large airy courtyard space for dining room. Rooms large. No view of anything but the street and the generators. Bell boys also helpful and friendly.

The hotel is very close to Capitol building and ideally located. I stayed here for a night. The staff are courteous and helpful. The air conditioner in our room was not working and upon our request the engineer immediately attended and repaired it. I had the continental buffet breakfast here (costing about USD 12.95). It was fair though I felt...

This hotel is very nice and clean. The staff was exceptionally friendly. There is a starbucks conveniently right across the street. The only thing I would advise people of is that walking from the Judiciary Square metro station there have been alot of shady people hanging out on street corners. The first night there were alot of emergency vehicles in...

Overall, this hotel is pretty large and open. The rooms are big and clean and the furniture is comfortable. Maintenance and upkeep need a little work. I stayed in room 803, which was a corner room with a nice view. It looks as if there has been water damage in my room as the window sill is warped and the...

The hotel staff from the doorman to the receptionist and not forgetting the housekeeping staff were brilliant! The room has been refurbish with big comfy bed and a wide...

I spent one night here on business in November 2013. The room was fine. No room service after 11, which was a drag. But the location is very good if you need to be in that part of town, and there's nothing wrong with the hotel for a quick trip.

Had the opportunity to stay here for business in September. The rooms are spacious and clean. The hotel itself was recently updated and the staff provided impeccable service during my stay. The hotel is very close the to the train station.

First, we booked this hotel through Bookit.com at the end of September for an October trip...we got a great deal, but, it was non refundable.
