The location is perfect. Felt a little uneasy catching the train and using Google Maps for directions. GM had me transferring twice for a 90m ride when it was a straight shot from Dulles (IAD) to Foggy Bottom. Luckily I was able to decipher the misdirection. The hotel is clean and nice but it's obvious that it's an old building. It was very nicely renovated but still, I expected more based on the money and pictures on the site. The carpet is worn and the A/C seems close to retirement and didn't initially work. But as I said the renovations were very nice. The bathroom is amazing. They've done well with little space and creativity.

Stayed from 9th through the 11th and never had more if a dispointing stay. We arrived on the 9th and had to stand outside because no one was at the front desk to allow us into the building. After finally checking in we got showers and the bathroom was soaked because the sliding glass doors on the shower did not seal properly. I then went to the front desk to get a blanket for the sofa bed since it was 3 to a room and kept being told it would be brought up (it wasnt). So First night slept in the room freezing. We left for a little on the 10th and when I got back the house keeping decided it was a good idea to throw away my diabetic pen when cleaning luckily I was able to find it in the trash. I then went again to get a blanket and was told it would be right there ( ended up going down a second time before getting it that day). Overall a horrible experience and when I asked for a partial refund I was turned down. Also don't say you have parking available if it's only a couple spots for an entire hotel chasing people to park at a parking garage down the street.
