  • Breakfast buffet was good - Staff were friendly and obliging - Beds and linen are definitely not new
  • Rooms are pretty spacious - Metro is about one block up the street - National zoo is also within easy walking distance

          Feel of the hotel was comfortable but very beautiful. Decor was luxurious and tastefully done.

          There was no indoor pool or spa.

          Beautiful hotel, nice comfortable rooms, excellent location, outdoor pool still open during last week of October

          Impossible to be served drinks on the terrace outside the restaurant even though it was warm and sunny. Bar staff not allowed to sell me drinks for the whole party of 3 (presumably linked to liquor laws) to take to the terrace. This is highly unusual for a hotel of this category.

        • Single
          7.0

          The sheets were clean, there was no noise from the room next door, the shower worked nicely, and there was free coffee and tea.

          1. My room was at the end of the hall, so there was a constant slamming of the door that the housekeeping staff used. 2. While there appeared to be soundproofing between rooms, there were gaps around the door frame and all of the noise in the hallway came in, as did the light; the feeling of privacy was diminished. 3. The elevators were inadequate to the traffic. I ended up walking up to the 7th floor!

        • Couple
          7.0

          The entry to the hotel and knowledgeable staff.

          Floor I stayed on smelled bad. Shower didn't work properly.

          The rooms were beautiful and comfortable. Feather pillows, yes! Lovely staff. Convenient $39 shuttle to Dulles. Nice hot tub and pool 9 (closes Oct 31)

          We decided to eat a light dinner in the bar. After waiting almost an hour, we were told the bar uses the room service kitchen, so if room service is busy the food could take a long time. This setup isn't the best.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Lovely lobby, friendly helpful staff. Located close to Metro.Excellent breakfast & bar.

          My bathroom & my friends bathroom had water leaking from 1)bath & 2)toilet (friends room) really needs to be repaired. Rooms could use updating.

          Excellent service, beautiful room, and gourmet food. Neigborhood is quiet and beautiful.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          great sheets and pillows

          single light switch controlling all the outlets in the room. The ceiling entry light had to be on to allow lights in sitting room to be used.
