    The property has attractive styling, friendly and helpful staff, and a great location. The night's sleep was wonderful -- very quiet with comfortable bedding and a great shower. We enjoyed a delightful breakfast at their restaurant and valet parking was a breeze.

    Good hotel with great service but need some update

    Although the some of the facilities need some serious update, especially the gym, the service were superb with exception that (1) the room service for the breakfast order was not accommodating to react to the errors, and (2) the shortage of staff at checkout may be an issue if you are in a hurry.

    4/5 Good

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

    Close to the White House and metro station. Nice and clean room, although there was a light mouldy smell whenever I return to the room. “Breakfast buffet” included was stated in my room rate but there wasn’t buffet but instead you have to order, with a daily limit of USD 30. Staff didn’t explain this until I asked.
