First to Review

It’s hard to find pictures of the rooms on this hotel’s Web site, likely because they would deter travelers.

My MIL stayed here five years ago and we were happy -- it was right across the street from the Hirshorn Museum and we had Metro access right inside the hotel. These days, it’s in rough shape. The corridors have carpet held in place by duct tape (silver too, not even a matching color!), the walls are stained, paper is torn, plaster is cracked. It needs a total redo, but some cleaning would help! The furniture in the room was scuffed, the upholstery was stained and the carpet by the bathroom was positively brown. Amazingly, the bathroom looked nice. And the lobby was spectacular. The day I was there they were hosting a beauty pageant and tall, stunning women with sashes made it look even better.

The restaurant, American Grill, is not cheap, but on this Sunday it was busy. So you’re OK if you eat there or go to a meeting, but stay out of the guest rooms.
