    Poor 2.0
    I never received my $70 refund to card. Also I contacted the hotel 1 hour after checkout time because I left a very expensive item in the room..they gave me the run around for four days and my item was never retrieved. My guess is the housekeeper decided to keep it! Unfortunately I will not recommend this hotel to anyone!

    Great Views
    The property is amazing, and due to low occupancy, I was upgraded to a beautiful river view. The room is modern, and in great new looking condition. Staff clearly like people, and we’re super friendly. It was a lovely stay, and I would highly recommend the property.

    Amazing stay. Front desk staff super friendly. Loved the room. Valet parking was pricey but worth it. Hotel restaurant has a great vibe.

    Exceptional 10.0
    Great Stay!
    This hotel is fantastic. From the location to the amenities, this hotel is a great value for those visiting the DC area. Starting with the location, it's about a $12 cab ride from Reagan Airport. The area around the hotel is new, with many options for food, entertainment and also a CVS. The hotel itself is welcoming, with a great staff to meet you at the door. Check in was a breeze, and it was easy to get to our room. The room was superb, with a great bathroom and floor to ceiling windows. The king bed is very comfortable. Parking is expensive, but with its proximity to the sights in DC at the mall, uber and cabs will suffice.

    Very good 8.0
    Don't stay on the 11th floor!
    The hotel was very nice and the room was comfortable. We enjoyed the view of the water and the Wharf. The only downfall was that we were on the 11th floor which was right under the bar on the 12th floor. When we came back to the room around midnight there was loud music thumping and what sounded like chairs or stools constantly being moved around above our heads. The music went on until almost 2 am. We didn't complain as we were settled in for the night and didn't want to switch rooms that late. We would stay here again but we would request a lower floor.

    Simply Terrific
    Warmly welcoming, sincerely friendly, helpful staff all around. Attractive lobby, restaurant, and rooms. Spacious rooms with excellent bedding, nearly silent HVAC, and quiet hallways. Dinner and brunch at Kith and Kin restaurant were both stellar experiences, and I hope to repeat soon.

    Excellent service, clean, comfortable hotel. Rooms were quiet. Nothing to complain about at all. We did not eat in the hotel but would definitely go back.
