The Good
The majority of the reviews sourced for this analysis were positive, with much praise going to the hotel's location, staff, rooms and value.

Numerous guests praised the hotel's location, and found it close to public transit, downtown, the White House, the National Mall, restaurants, the Smithsonian, the airport and attractions. One patron remarked, "This hotel is located close to everything you want to see in DC. Can walk to the Lincoln Memorial, Museums and Ford's Theater. The White House is only a couple blocks away. Very nice hotel located right on 14th Street - the main road into Downtown DC. Cannot beat the location!"

The hotel's staff were the source of many compliments by travellers, who characterized them as efficient, friendly and helpful with directions. One guest noted, "From the moment we drove up, the staff treated us wonderfully. As we were leaving, a staff member ran up to our car with his arms full of bottled water, gave them to us, and told us to have a nice trip home. Management is doing everything right at this property!"

Several lodgers enjoyed the hotel's accommodations. They described their rooms as clean, spacious, well equipped, quiet, elegant and well maintained, with comfortable beds. 

The hotel's value impressed several patrons, who described the rates as reasonable, affordable and worth the money. One guest stated, "For the price, an unbeatable value. They could probably charge significantly more and it would still be worth the price!" A few reviewers felt the hotel's valet-only parking was too expensive, however.

The Bad
While the majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a few complaints about noise transfer.

Some reviewers complained of noise disturbances during their stay. They reported noisy in-room air-conditioning units, as well as noise transfer in rooms overlooking the hotel's central air-conditioning units outside of the hotel. Traffic and street noise were also mentioned by a few lodgers.

As noted above, a few reviewers also complained about the valet-only parking fee. guest reviews rated the hotel 4.5 out of 5 with a 95% recommendation rate from 1,489 reviews. guest reviews ranked the hotel #23 of 127 Washington D.C. hotels with an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 from 1,176 reviews. guest reviews rated the hotel 8.7 out of 10 from 222 reviews.
