White House and National World War II Memorial are notable landmarks, and travelers looking to shop may want to visit CityCenterDC and Union Station Shopping Center. Check out an event or a game at Capital One Arena, and consider making time for Smithsonian's National Zoo, a top attraction not to be missed.

    5/5 Excellent

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    Like that it had fridge, microwave, iron...these were unexpected cuz the hotel was a last minute pick.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, room comfort

    No AC in winter

    I have stayed here a couple times, most likely will stay there again as my office is nearby. In the winter they shut down the AC and only heat works. Every room was over 72 degrees. Mine was 78 and the advice was to open the windows (on a busy street) to cool it off. Decent option if you’re looking to keep the budget in check, but be aware.

    Economical for DC

    The hotel is a bit dated, but the staff are very welcoming. I liked the check-in/coffee kiosk. Our room wasn't cleaned one day, but they got us towel right away. The location is very convenient with the red and orange metro lines within two blocks and lots of restaurants nearby (and a Wawa around the corner). Our room was huge, but a bit too warm; we could only cool it by opening the window and it's never quiet in the city! I would stay here again for the right price.

    • Disliked: Amenities

    Old and run down. No real perks to this hotel. Super small elevators, no lobby to speak of

    4/5 Good

    • Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

    The room was very large and comfortable with 2 beds and a sitting area. There was a problem with the heating so it was very hot (79 degrees in December). Management's solution was to open a window - not ideal in a noisy city. It is quite close to the Mall.
