Great location, convenient to Washington DC attrac
We loved that the hotel was within walking distance to the Kennedy Center and the Mall. The staff was wonderful, but occasionally there would be a line at the desk so a second person would have been nice. Parking is done by a valet for $40 a day. They went out of their way to make it convenient for us especially when we were in a hurry. One of the desk staff actually walked us to the Metro stop when we asked how to get there. How much better can it get!
I would have liked it if they had a restaurant, even a small one, on site. Breakfast would be awesome but I'm not sure they have the room. The hallways were badly overheated and the room was too so we actually opened the window at night to be comfortable.
We all enjoyed staying at the hotel. The location was convenient and the reception area personnel were very accomodating.
We all felt that the breakfast was too expensive, for what was offered. Also, the service was awful.
The facilities, furniture, and furnishings are a bit older, but you get room to spread out in, the location is excellent, and the price is relatively inexpensive. It was great for a group visiting DC to explore all the wonderful sights to see.
We had absolutely no complaints!
Location & Staff
Run down A/C didn't work Parking was $40.00 + $7.50 (Tax)
Great value and location
Great location, friendly staff, and large rooms with kitchen inside.
Great location, staff, and place
To begin, the location is second to none. 2 minutes away from the metro. And all the main DC sites are within minutes using the metro. Staff was also great, every morning there was lemon water and apples available for guests to start their day. Ultimately, the place was amazing, no complaints from my side, very clean, very tidy, and comfortable.
Nice place, great value
Location, staff, adjustable fan in the room (quiet AC).
Great customer service!
Staff was amazing and attentive, location great
Could use some updating
I really like the staff there and the fruits, candy and maps prepared for us. It's 15 minites walk to the white house. Location is beatiful and convinient.
It was a little bit noisy at night because someone next door or above was talking. The noise cancelling was not that good.
Staff was VERY helpful, cheerful, and knowledgeable.
The only problem was a dance competition that was held nearby. When the competitors arrived at 2:00am it was a bit noisy.
Great location for the money
The rooms were a very good size, had separate living and sleeping space, and a kitchenette. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The best part was it's proximity to the Foggy Bottom metro stop, which put all of DC within reach. Otherwise it's only about a 20 minute walk to reach the monuments at the end of the mall.
Parking costs extra, and street parking Is near impossible
The best part of this hotel is the location. With children at GWU, it's the perfect place to stay to be close to campus, restaurants, and other Washington adventures. The beds and pillows were comfy.
I didn't care for the smell of smoke coming in to the bathroom through the fan that ran constantly or tj e broken dial on the heat lamp in the bathroom so that it did not turn off automatically, I asked the gentleman at the front desk about dirty drips on the bathroom floor, the big smear on the bathroom wallpaperor. He said the housekeeping manager was there at the time and he would send her up. No one showed up before I checked out the following day. The 6" x 9" steam/burn on the carpet in the bedroom was also a big eyesore. I also didn't like being evacuated by a false fire alarm at 7 AM.
With a stay at ARC THE.HOTEL, Washington DC, you'll be centrally located in Washington, within a 5-minute drive of George Washington University and Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Featured amenities include a 24-hour business center, limo/town car service, and express check-in.
