            Bed was extremely comfortable.

            Breakfast could have been better. No cream cheese for bagels. No room to sit and eat. The clerks didn't seem knowledgeable. No elevator. Not enough parking..

          • Single
            7.4

            location; simple clean rooms with unexpected amenities, such as an ironing board, WI-FI (too slow), and a closet (but no night-stand since there was no room for it; I guess it was one or the other...); yet, the room was not that small by European standards and the bathroom was clean and spacious; nice building with some character; quiet; I was lucky to be on the 1st floor since the elevator was down.

            priced a bit too high for the type of room and hotel; reception area too small for breakfast; would have preferred lower rates and no breakfast (there are plenty of coffee shops around)

          • Single
            8.0

            My room was clean, the staff was pleasant and helpful, and although the room was quite small, it was adequate for what I wanted, and the price was right. It is in an excellent location. The breakfast is free, and the small lobby makes it possible to begin conversation with other guests.

            Luckily I was on the first floor as the elevator is broken.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Staff very helpful and friendly. Caters to students, old time travelers, international population, fun to sit and talk with all in morning over breakfast.

            Bed was hard as a box spring and covered in plastic (sweaty). Double room means a full size, not queen, bed.

          • Single
            7.0

            Staff is really kind and ready to solve any issues.

            The facilities could be refurbished to modernize old style.

          • Single
            5.4

            The room is too small and the place for breakfast is not convenient to eat.

            No table and chair in the room.

          • Single
            7.0

            Great location, close to everything. Good price

            The elevators did not work, the room was in the 4th floor. The A/C was very bad, the room was so hot you'd sweat all the time. Very little space for breakfast.

          • Family with children
            7.0

            No area to have breakfast, food had to be taken outside or to the room.

            See below which ruins everything else.

            Bed bugs, my wife and daughter both had bites.

          • Group of friends
            6.2

            I really liked the hotel worked with me when there was a mixup in the booking. We had to relocate to a different hotel for our final night, but they made the transition pain-free.

            There was mold on the shower curtain and the door was a bear to open. The elevator was out of service and the maids were rude.

          • Older travelers
            4.2

            The maid and cleaning service did a good job. The location was perfect for a city.

            The room was ridiculously small and for the amount we paid we should have had bigger. There were plenty bigger rooms available - we had to take it in turns to put our suitcases on the bed to get into them. The staff at the desk were mostly on the telephone every time we tried to speak to them - all personal calls - and it was very hard to get their attention.

            Very beautiful hotel in old DC-style, the rooms are small, but beautiful and the staffs are very helpful

          • Group of friends
            10.0

            The hotel staff was exceptional. I was afraid that our stay at this hotel was going to be a disaster. What I had reserved online - two queen beds - is not what the hotel had available for me upon arrival even though I had called the hotel to verify my reservations when I made them four months prior. Although the staff was very apologetic, the only option available was a double - double. Upon seeing it, I was surprised at how nice it looked and decided to take it. The beds were increbibly comfortable and rooms quiet. It seemed that any need I enquired about was immediately and politely taken care making our stay exceptionally pleasant. I would recommend the hotel to others and would definitely stay here again.

            The rooms were nice, the staff was friendly. breakfast was good.Just a very nice hotel

            more room to eat breakfast would be nice and the nearest subway station is rather far.

          • Family with children
            4.6

            The location is fine, you can walk from the hotel to explore Washington. The beds are o.k.

            Breakfast was very poor and there was not enough room, so you had to eat standing.The hotel is very old and not well maintained. Some outlets were loose. The t.v. did not function well.
