This review will be short and sweet. I was in DC for one day for a conference.
Check-in: seamless and easy. Friendly staff at the front desk.
Room: clean and great beds and pillows. I didn’t want to get out of bed this morning! Good size too. Light and airy.
Bathroom: clean but small. If 4 people stayed in a two-bedded room, it’ll be a major squeeze while getting ready. Shower was good.
Location: the town of Glover park is beautiful. However not very close to some sightseeing. It’s is NOT close to Union Station. It’s a good 20 min drive.
Parking: I didn’t use but it’s $36 for overnight, $16 per day. There’s no free street parking around.
WiFi is free. I didn’t use the gym.
I had breakfast at the restaurant this morning. It was great! Service was good.
I would come back.
We loved this hotel. Updated/ modern feel. The staff were very helpful with any question or recommendation. It’s across the street from the Russian Embassy. High on a hill. Must be good for surveillance of the city and our country. Regardless, the hotel is quiet and in a great location if you’re visiting American Univ. The hotel taxes are quite high... be warned.
