We found a great rate through a internet site and chose this hotel based on location to the sights we wanted to see. It was a bit difficult to find the entrance as there is not a drive thru portico. There is just curb parking for loading and unloading. Once we approached the entrance, the very nice door man showed us where to park and helped us unload the car. We used valet parking $55/day for overnight parking. Most of the garages are $50 but we didn't want to drive all over finding a spot on a week day in a maze of one way streets. Well worth it to use the valet. Anna checked us in. She was really nice. I asked if it was possible to have 2 beds instead of the king I had booked. She immediately said she could do that. I asked if that would cost extra since I already had a very low rate. She said normally it would be an extra $50 a night but she would up grade us for no additional charge. The room was very nice. Big television, modern decor and loved the large bath sheet towels. All the amenities you expect in an upscale hotel. Bed was very comfortable. The main restaurant was under renovation but all meals could be had in the bar area. We did not take any of our meals here. Tons of places to eat in a 2 block radius. Everything from inexpensive to fine dining. Several Starbucks near by as well as other coffee shops and sandwich shops. This was one block from the White House and easily walking distance to the mall and most of the Smithsonian museums. I would definitely stay here again.
