    Beautiful hidden gem in downtown DC!

    Such a beautiful hidden gem in downtown DC! This old building was remodeled into a chic, modern hotel that is within walking distance to George Washington University. An inexpensive Uber ride away from all DC has to offer. Very comfortable with lots of amenities and extremely friendly, helpful staff! Only complaint was that the bar downstairs didn't stay open past dinner time.

    • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities

    The hotel did not give me the room I booked through Expedia. They claim that an Expedia booking is not a guarantee of your room. I had to book at another hotel in order to get the two beds I was promised. This occured after the hotel emailed me directly to confirm my reservation.
