It was bit off our path but we chose this hotel based on price though so no complain really. The hotel greats you with iced and fruit flavoured water in the lobby(it turned out we were perhaps lucky upon arrival on the day as it was absent the day after). They have underground parking that at first seems to be expensive but trust me, you will find it difficult to find something cheaper in that spot! (we had decided to stay longer in DC after already booking this hotel and it turned out to be booked on dates we were after, so we decided to walked 15 minutes for the following days to the car park from another hotel just for the price). Having Starbucks can be considered advantage for some as well. The personal disappointment was the room placed by the elevators. The noise kept me awake for half of the night. Otherwise surely worth giving a go.
Excellent hotel right next to convention center and Chinatown. Very clean and well maintained. Attentive staff. Definitely recommend this if you need to be in DC for a meeting/convention. Close to Chinatown, Rasika, Del Friscos etc.
