We had a great stay here. Staff was friendly and the room was very clean. The location on the wharf was fantastic. We could walk to the Smithsonian easily from there too. I would highly recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

Hotel stay was great and the scenery was nice. Only complaint is that the location of the hotel is in a tight narrow space. To get parking in the garage isn't easy because tourists takes up those spots from the hotel guests. Besides that it was a great getaway

The view from this property is stunning, especially at night. Concierge and staff helped me make this stay memorable for my family. Any request we had they took care of it right away. The drinks at the bar are probably the best I've had. One of them was too pretty to drink. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
