Bathroom was very nice
It was literally 2 blocks from the White House and Lafayette Square. If you’re going to DC to do the touristy stuff, this is a great location because you are pretty much close to everything. I walked not only to the White House, but also to the Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, WW II Memorial, and Smithsonian block, where all the Smithsonian institutions are located. It’s all walking distance. Loved that the hotel offered a complimentary bicycle code, so you can rent one for short rides. Rooms are spacious and quite comfortable. Enjoyed breakfast at the restaurant too. I recommend the French Toast! Finally, the concierges were particularly helpful in giving me advice throughout my stay.
I thought the bed was excessively soft. As in not being able to lay down straight, soft. Had to ask the housekeeping lady to remove the top comforter like layer, and still it was too soft. Would suggest firmer mattresses.
I booked the room based on thinking the tub as jacuzzi but it wasn’t.
Thinking it was a jacuzzi room which it wasn’t
The rooms were amazing.
When we were leaving the elevator wasn’t working so we had to walk done five floors with our luggage.
Very close to everything. Staff was wonderful
Had to ask for extra towels
