a traveler from Travelocity.com
on July 25, 2009
My husband and I visited Washington, DC, for the first time and found a great deal for this hotel on travelocity.com. We were so impressed when we arrived at the hotel. Not only does it look fantastic - I should say luxurious, but the hotel staff was extremely personable and helpful. Our great impression continued when we entered our room. We had a beautiful room with a great view of the marina and found we were walking distance from the seafood market along the river which we enjoyed very much (it's far enough away so no seafood smell reaches the hotel, but close enough to walk to for a great lunch or dinner). We also found we were within comfortable walking distance from the main DC attractions! The Jefferson Memorial and Washington Monument are each just a short stroll away - and we felt secure enough in the hotel area to walk to each at night. The only negatives to this hotel: valet parking is expensive (but they are extremely prompt and friendly - very good at what they do), hotel brunch is expensive with limited selection (but the restaurant is very accomodating to special orders), and hotel pool closes too early (9 PM).
