    Fabulous

    Location, staff, CVS was open just infornt of the hotel for 24 hrs. Resturant and cafes available near the hotel in a walking distance with different variety.

    They have party every night at the rooftop, and I was just below it. The base sound was just annoying, did not let me sleep well. When I complain they promise to lower it, but it almost the same. Next night, I have to reequest again, but this time they lower it.

    Fabulous

    Excellent view (if you are lucky to get a room not facing the inner yard....)

    Be sure to have the print-out booking from www.Booked.net on hand especially if you have booked a room "with a view to Thomas Circle".... You have almost to fight for it. It doesn't matter how long in advance you have booked - you'll be firstly told that the hotel is sold out and that you can take only the room with the view to the inner yard (awful!). But if you stand your ground and if you're lucky enough after half a hour of discussions and persuasions you'll be put in a room you have booked. This happened both times I stayed in this hotel for the past three months.

    The staff was very helpful. Our room had unique furnishing and a very nice view of the city. Location was perfect - very close to the major tourist attractions.

    A microwave in the room would have been nice

    Fabulous

    The relaxed atmosphere of the hotel and some of the staff. The roof top pool and bar. The room. The location.

    The pool closed at 5pm which I think is too early especially at a city hotel where guests may have been on business all day or sightseeing and fancy a quick dip when they get back. This is the first hotel I have ever stayed in and had to pay for tea and coffee in the room - I was quite shocked by this.

    Very good

    The location. Close to the White House and walking distance to places of interest.

    The shower. Felt that the water pressure from the shower is very weak.

    Superb

    This boutique hotel had a very retro vibe with a lot of thought into setting a sense of atmosphere around the bed. It really made us want to lie in bed, relaxing while listening to jazz on the ipod dock. It is close to some fabulous resturants and bars so although it may be a bit off the beaten track to the more established neighborhoods in the city, you did not have to walk far for a great eveining out. Gay or straight, a very mixed and open neighborhood.

    Metro service to the area is poor. Cabs and foot are the way to go

    Incredibly friendly staff, just an excellent hotel overall. Nice rooftop swimming pool and bar. Complimentary drinks between 5-6 was a great way to rewind and begin the evening. The room was fantstic, very modern and comfortable.

    Not enough towel hooks!

    From the time of arrival to departure the attitude, courtesy,respect,and friendliness shown to both my wife and myself by all staff was superb.

    The hotel is close enough to the nearest Metro station but far enough from the noise of the street. There is a nice 24 hours store across the street which can be very useful when you are travelling light and need stuff for your stay.

    The swimming pool is quite disappointing because of its size.

    Superb

    What a great stay! Fantastic location just a short walk north of the White House and the Mall! What we didnt know is that the hotel is pet friendly which although we didnt have pets with us, other people did, so it was great being around pets whilst being on holiday! They also do a free wine tasting event every evening in the foyer for all hotel guests! It was a great way to meet people! Plus the restaurant attached to the hotel is first class! One of the best meals we had whilst on holiday!
