Superb 9.0 From 939 reviews

Poor 2.0
Nice rooms but horrible experience.
I called prior to booking to see if parking was included and was told yes. It wasn't so that tacked on an extra $71 CAD. We got into our room and it wasn't the type of room I booked so we had to wait and be moved. The neighbors were rowdy till 2am (for most of the time we thought the sound was from outside because of the music but that was incorrect). We were awoken early by howling dogs in the room above us and a housekeeping crew who seemed to be playing bumper cars in the hallway smashing their cart into our door. The room was lovely but the experience was awful. Oh, and $16 CAD for a bottle of water from the mini fridge. Ouch.
Shannon, ca1 night romance trip
Exceptional 10.0
I like the classy but modern style of this hotel. Staff are very nice and helpful. Room is clean and spacious, very comfy. The only thing I don't like is the pillow is way too soft to be a pillow. The location is excellent. I took the metro from the airport to L'Enfant Plaza, there it has free shuttle to InterContinental at the Wharf every 10 mins, very convenient!

Fair 4.0
The back of the house staff was apauling they put dirty sheets on the bed twice and took 3 hours to come with clean sheets and then told us they don’t make beds. The front of the house was great and the location was perfect.

Beautiful New Hotel
Beautiful new hotel in the newly planned Wharf District of DC. It’s a very manageable walk to the National Mall and is a very popular but comfortable area at night.
Alan, ca2 night romance trip
Exceptional 10.0
The hotel is almost brand new, room is still in great shape. Staff is great, displaying great customer service attitude. Location is awesome, an Uber trip to National Mall is about $13. The roof top pool and bar is awesome. From there, we can see the top of the Washington monument, the river and the channel, and planes landing and taking off from DCA runways. We were not able to have a single meal at Kith and Kin simply because they cannot accommodate our party of 8 sitting together. There are quite a few restaurants around there, which is nice.
HT, ca3 night trip
Very Good 8.0
Nice hotel with close proximity to Mall, wharf neighborhood and Nationals Park. Fun spot for a weekend.
ca2 night trip
Fair 4.0
Nice hotel but I won’t be back
This is a beautiful hotel but the staff needs to work on their customer service. They lacked hospitality and were not very kind at all. I realized they were kinder to the guests that weren’t people of color than they were to me (a woman of color). Definitely experienced some microaggressions, which negatively affected my overall experience.
Chelsea, us1 night trip
Fair 4.0
Mailing it in
Would have rated higher but my AC stopped working in the middle of the night making the room really uncomfortable. Also my floor’s ice maker was broken and had been long enough that they put a laminated sign on it, it’s unacceptable to suggest just going down or up a flight of stairs in a hotel of this caliber. Most disappointing was the roof deck remaining closed even though the website said it would reopen in May.
