10/10 Exceptional

Highly recommended
Excellent stay. Room was spotlessly clean and comfortable beds and pillows. Free wifi. Large bathroom. Great location for restaurants and vicinity to National Mall and museums. Warm and welcoming staff. Allowed us to check in at 9am. Only complaint would be the pool area - small rooftop pool that was overcrowded. Pool area did have a great view though.
