Positives: Location was wonderful. Staff was Great! Informative and answered any questions. Bartender at the restuarant was great and friendly. Within walking distance or a short ride to all of the Attractions i.e.... Museums, White House, King Center. Also central location if wanting to take Uber or any other Public Transportation to other areas of the city. Rooms were exceptionally clean and decor was amazing. Bed comfortable. Me and my friends really enjoyed our stay and always appreciate an amazing hotel.

Positives: Central location (by Train Station), roomy setting.
Negatives: Hotel blamed for "overbooking", so we got a room with 1 bed instead of 2 beds as per reservation. We had to use a sofa bed. We received $75 voucher for compensation. The room's window faced an internal, artificial courtyard. Pricey.
Very good

Positives: The hotel is new, modern and nice. The staff is friendly. The room was spacious and clean. The French restaurant on the ground floor had really good food.
Negatives: When we arrived the hotel put a hold on my debit card for the amount of booking plus incidentals, which was $3000. Okay, standard procedure, I have no problem with that. On check-out I have paid the final bill, which was around $2500, but the hold for $3000 was not removed from my card at that time, leaving me with almost no money available on my card, which was a real inconvenience during our trip home. Also, it was pure luck that I actually had that extra $3000 available on my card at that time, because I really didn't plan for this to happen. I'm not sure what would happen at check-out if I didn't have that money. I wouldn't be able to pay the bill! The hold was lifted about 3 weeks later because the hotel didn't do anything about it and it just expired. I wrote a complaint to the hotel, and they say that it's not up to them but that it's a card issuer policy. I still think the hotel could use a different process for final payment - convert the initial hold to the actual payment with the correct amount, instead of creating a completely new transaction and just letting the hold expire according to the card issuer policy. That way the guest wouldn't have an unnecessary hold put on their money. Be aware that you might need to have double the money or double the limit on your credit card if you're planning to stay at this hotel.

Positives: The hotel is close to many attractions and is within easy walking distance. The main train station is only a 3-4 minute walk from the hotel, which was convenient for all subways and trains.
Negatives: The food was very good, especially the portions are very large and very tasty. our children could not finish their meals. There is no breakfast buffet, only à la carte food. but could wish for at least a buffet for breakfast.
