great location, but bathrooms are a little tired and floors are noisy

My new favorite hotel!
It is really nice when you visit a hotel with high expectations and then, miraculously, those high expectations are not only met, but exceeded. Rooms beautifully decorated. notch. And then there are the subtle touches like no noise when the air goes on and off and windows that seal off the noise outside. Restaurant is gorgeous; food delicious. Can't wait to return. :)

This hotel was very nice and we enjoyed our stay. We like to stay in places that are not your typical chain hotel and this one was exceptional. I loved the beautiful decor that maintained the early 1900's feel. The staff was very kind and the service was superb. You must check out the view from the roof which is the best in the city of the White House which is just across the street.

Location is the best!
Staff, location, restaurant and bar are the highlights. The only issue we had is that we were on the 8th floor (there is a private event space on the 9th floor) and we could hear the music loudly through the ceiling. We had to request to be moved as we were unable to go to sleep. So, my only suggestion is to request to NOT be on the 8th floor. Other than that, the rooms and bathrooms were perfectly nice. I would definitely stay here again!
