Upscale, home-away-from-home comfort at a lavishly decorated establishment.
This hotel is notable for both its service and its ambience. The staff is dedicated to making every aspect of your stay comfortable. The impressive carved-ceiling lobby recalls the building's 1929 origins. At the same time, the property is up-to-date, with stainless-steel-adorned kitchenettes and chrome-accented bathrooms providing a modern touch. Guest rooms are furnished with numerous imported luxury accents, including Italian fabrics, unique artwork and Oriental and European antiques. Ample closet space, separate dressing areas and large work areas are indulgent extras, and views look out over Pennsylvania Avenue and nearby parks and gardens. Along with the fitness center, guests have free access to a neighboring pool facility. The café restaurant and lounge offer everything from cocktails and appetizers to full dinners, and the food is a highlight. The hotel's proximity to George Washington University makes for a college-minded crowd during the academic year; those looking for luxury and prime access to the White House will find themselves at home, as well.
