food and service was good My husband and i were given an end corner room 302 that was way to small and gave a confined effect. We spent as much time out of the room as possible. Parking was also difficult due to lack of easy access to our vehicle asit was in an underground garrage.
Staff and free snacks were great. Nothing
Location, convenience Rooms are dated, small and dark
Well maintained older hotel convenient to restaurants and tourist attractions. Nice linens and towels. Great cocktail lounge. Friendly and welcoming service. Street noise; will bring earplugs next time.
The location 24 hr coffee station clean rooms Small room configured & supplied for the single business traveler. One bath towel 4 the family.
The location for downtown dc couldn't be better, and staff was excellent and very helpful Room was small but for the price value of everything else it didn't matter
We were in DC to visit our son at GWH. Clean and efficient. Perfect location to the occasion. The bed could have been positioned 90° to the 8' room width.
The staff was warm and welcoming from the moment I stepped through the door with my 12 year old. I detest the hold hotels put on your credit card and don't release for days and was told I could pay the $50 incidental in cash (which I received back at checkout before the housekeeper had even cleaned the room). The room was indeed small with only 1 bed which would have been a problem if I hadn't been traveling with family. However, it was clean, along with the bathroom. I did whack my elbow against the wall as I was showering as the stall was a bit cramped. We received great instructions on how to make our way to the White House and monuments - - all within walking distance. We finished our running around a bit early so we took advantage of the 2nd floor lounge for about a half hour before heading back to Union Station. There was an industrial coffee/espresso/cappuccino maker, tea bags, newspapers, a big screen tv set to CNN, a charging station, computers etc. The rooms are too small for friends to convene comfortably so the lounge is a nice spot. Convenience: A block away from the Circulator, a block away from the Farragut North and Farragut West station (it is actually on top of the Farragut West station, however, the entrance is closed so it's necessary to walk to the other side a block down). The complimentary bottled water saved us some money and we surely took advantage. The shower was uncomfortably small for a tall lanky person like me. Whacking my elbow against the wall isn't something I expect to happen in a hotel (usually hotel bathrooms are more comfy than my micro bathroom at home in NYC). Also, the room did not have a mini fridge which would have been nice for our leftovers. The hotel is downtown so the area at night is sparse (still feels safe though). You'll need to take a little walk to find some good breakfast if you set out early on a weekend because the nearby places are either never open on the weekends or only open closer to 9 am.
The location was great as was the staff.
This is a great hotel, simple and convenient. The rooms are small, but quiet and the location is perfect. Right next to the metro and near the White House and mall. A little small... but otherwise great.
We went to DC to celebrate my husband's birthday for a long weekend. We looked for a long time online and a lot of the offering was overpriced for the amenities available. The Club Quarters was a great find!!!! The staff was very helpful throughout our stay. There is an espresso bar on the 2nd floor!! We were a few blocks from all the greatest attractions, walked to every site. Never had to take a cab or the Metro. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and will come back. We found a gem in D.C. and will be recommending it to our family and friends.
Nice lobby, courteous staff, comfortable bed. Tiny gym, mold in the bathroom grout, room amenities were average, surprising amount of wear and tear in our room for a hotel in this category.
Location is ideal for seeing the museums and monuments. Lobby and restaurant staff are warm and welcoming. If you forget to tip housekeeping each morning, don't expect clean towels.
Very clean, quiet and accommodating.
State Plaza provides nice, basic business-type lodging with good service.
The staff were helpful and nice and the location was convenient. The kitchen is a nice convenience, but not needed for a short stay. The carpet in the room was dirty. There is no fan or window in the washroom so steam from the shower stays in the room, this causes humidity and mold. I'm allergic to mold so this was very uncomfortable. The hotel has two towers, and only one common washroom with one stall located in the other tower. If you have a late flight out you can store your suit cases but no place to change. The toiletries were advertised as designer. It was bath and body brand. The washroom was dirty, hair in the tub. I don't recommend the Hotel for physically challenged guests as there are steep stairs up to the elevator from the lobby. I had to struggle with the suitcases up the stairs. Beware that the hotel charges if there are more than 2 occupants in the room. This was not disclosed at booking. They also charge for incidentals at check in. I found this Hotel to be Overpriced for what you get. I stayed at the Marriott down the street last year, I payed about the same and had a much nicer room, pool, etc.
Liked price, location, staff's friendliness & helpfulness, updated rooms, kitchen, breakfast.
A great location within walking distance of the State Dept., where I was attending a conference. Staff was helpful. Renovated room in the north tower was beautiful. Spacious, super clean, full kitchen, new bathroom and carpeting. Comfy bed. CVS and a liquor store adjacent. Need to upgrade cable to HD service. No restaurants or cafes nearby--at least I couldn't find any.
Just a few blocks from the museums, white house, etc. Only 40 feet from a CVS. Rooms were nice and clean. My Only complaint was that when asked about parking they told me they have a Valet. Afterwards a friend told me he parked himself for free. Not sure if they changed their rules or it was just poor communication. Either way i paid like 35$ extra each night.
Very clean and very well maintained. Nice accommodations. Nice staff. There was a transitional issue with the heating and air. We were between hot and cold days so the heat was the only option- no air conditioning. It was warm in the room on the hotter days- they did provide us with fans which helped. If it had been warmer outside it would have been very difficult to sleep.
* Room was a good size * Room included a kitchen area with full-size fridge and sink. The room was extremely cold, and when we turned the heat on, the vent blew colder air out. We called the front desk and were informed that they had "switched over" the system and that even though it was turned to heat it would only cool the room. We were told a space heater would be sent to the room, but one never arrived and then hours later we were told they were out of space heaters. If the heating and cooling system can be "switched over" then presumably it can be switched back, so my question for this hotel is if everyone was so cold that you ran out of heaters, why not switch the ability to heat rooms back on? Overall it was kind of bizarre and extremely inconvenient to have to wear coats indoors and put a damper on our otherwise-pleasant stay.
Staff was friendly. Gave upgrade to a giant suite when they were out of the room I'd booked since I had arrived late. The hotel was old and it was obvious that it was old.
BEDBUGS. I had to launder everything and throw away my luggage. very annoyed. have stayed here before but will not be going back.
Kitchen and dressing area... very unique! TV didn't work very well. The front desk didn't know all the routes and ways to get to the DULLES airport.
This is such a grand hotel. We spent 4 wonderful days here, great staff, exceptionally clean rooms and great views.
I came down to ride my bike to all the museums and monuments. When I presented my claim ticket for my bike to the bellman my bike had been stolen. I spent 4 hours in the lobby filling out a police report
Excellent location. Beautiful view of the Washington Monument from our room. Staff was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.
Location Maids Front desk staff on more than one occasion Very small rooms
Customer service The sofa sleepers
The staff at the hotel went out of their way to please us. In particular: Mr. Herb Wright greeted us daily with his million dollar smile and was always ready to be of assistance. Mekdes Pierce, Nathan and Limlin worked so hard each day in the lounge for breakfast and appetizers/dinner. They were so kind no matter how busy they were. Absolutely not one thing. It was an outstanding hotel.
Location They offered to an upgraded room with a view for more $ Room had no view. AC broke , took 1 full day and multiple sells to get it repaired.
The room was lovely, and the staff was courteous, helpful and efficient.
Everything about the hotel was fantastic, the staff were very courteous and helpful and all made a point of knowing my 7 year old son's name. Not applicable.
Outstanding service and courtesy were the hallmarks of our stay here. The room was immaculate and well cared for. The location was perfect for everything we wanted to see and do. The conceirge was outstanding in his helpfulness. No coffee maker in the room, yikes, missed that first, fast heart- starting cup.
Location was great. Wonderful room. Two good restaurants with great staff but a bit expensive. All staff members were great! Fitness room was available even in this boutique setting. My son lost his stuffed animal while we were there and they left a new one in the room for him - it made him very happy (they later found his but let him keep the new one, "Freddie". Restaurant was too expensive, especially for breakfast. Fitness room was a bit small.
Very comfortable and pleasant stay . Excellent service and perfect location.
friendly staff,premium location.
The staff was awesome Could've used a coffee maker in the room.
Staff was excellent; great location The walls are paper thin and the person next door had a party until 3 am. Impossible to sleep.
No maid service
The accomodations were fabulous. Great fitness and business center. Courteous staff and location can't be beat when business at the Capitol. Little trouble communicating with maid.
I had a very comfortable and modern furnished 1 bedroom apartment. It included a complete, well equipped kitchen and also a washer and dryer--quite luxurious! The public hallways always had a cooking smell--not always pleasant. The smell did not penetrate into the rooms.
An apartment feel in a hotel setting. Very comfortable and welcoming. Lots of space and facilities which made for a luxurious end to a 5 week travelling holiday. great position, quiet- 1 block from the white House and a short walk to the National Mall and close to Metrorail.
The suites were large, clean, and well decorated. The kitchens had everything you would need to cook meals. There were two nice cold bottles of water waiting when you got there. My daughter loved the open fire place in the lobby. Close proximity to the metro, specifically the green and orange lines for easy access to the National Mall. The folks at the front desk were very helpful. The washer and dryer was a real perk. We had a great stay at AKA! The tubs are a little high, but I assume so water doesn't splash out.
location of the hotel on center of the capital. in the 9th floor on my suite there was very noise left , which have a big sound when arrive to the floor, so he wakeup me of my sleep, many times on every day of my 12th night.
We like the great location and the friendly and helpful reception staff. Scott from engineering is very responsive and dedicated. The cleaning staff is one of the poorest we have encountered in our travels. Their attitude is surly and their work poor. On our cleaning last cleaning day, 30 July, dirty sheets were left all day in the general hallway just off the elevator and our room was not cleaned. It was cleaned Saturday by a resentful staffer, who did not replace towelling completely and we found out later, threw out or bags we were saving in the cabinet under the sink for our own trash and shopping.
terrace missing breakfast on Sunday
I liked the comfort and facilities particularly. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment and we were a group of 3 adults. The space was large and comfortable. The heating system was easy to manage and the kitchen area was better stocked with utensils/equipment than the place we stayed in NYC. I was particularly pleased to have a washing machine and dryer in the apartment. The staff were very welcoming and helpful with information. The location was also excellent - just a short walk from the White House and it was an easy walk to most museums etc. Our criticisms of AKA are minor. A "light breakfast" is available Monday to Friday. This is tailored to the American market. We would have found it more usuable if more cereal options and toast were provided.
There was more room than I expected or needed. The suite was well appointed and felt luxurious. The staff were very helpful and courteous. One bathroom counter was not very clean. The outdoor noises, which were present late into the night, were significant. I'd recommend better, quieter windows for such a nice hotel.
Location - walkable to everything Requested several items - fix drain in tub, additional remote for TV and did not get them.
Great location also amazing views ,fun staff and lobby had nice vibe turns into social setting with a DJ When I arrived was able to get a room right away as requested but it didn't have a view . And had ask the guy that was checking me in if I had a view he says yes I do , I walk in to my room it was a room facing the inside I of the building no view very disappointing so went back down and young lady was able to get us a much nicer room very happy . During the evening they have DJ in the lobby so when out all day and came back you requested your room key in order to get in the hotel not happy about that
Great bed, nice, modern room. Amazing location. Our room had a view of a brick wall, very disappointing. The room service was very poor and very expensive. Travel channel fans, don't come here expecting an amazing sandwich, it is no longer available.
Location was great. Checkout was advertised as 3:00 PM, We were not able to check into our room until 5:00. When we did check-in we had already pre-paid for a Fabulous Room, but the staff member that was checking us in recommended we switch to a Spectacular Room since we had a young child. He said the Fabulous Room would be too loud due to the location of being on the top floor under the bar. We agreed to change rooms, but were only offered breakfast vouchers which we knew we wouldn't use. After we walked away my husband said he felt like the guy was a used car salesman and that we got played. We went back to the desk and dealt with another employee (Harry) and he switched us back to our original room and said that the room was not that loud.
Location was great. Stayed for 5 days and requested an additional day (midweek) and was told rate would over double what I had paid since I booked with a "third party". Spoke with manager in the morning and was told she'd call room in 15 minutes. After an hour and a half waiting with no contact we packed and left. Happily stayed at a Kimpton 4 star hotel in Alexandria that was less money and awesome. Left with a really bad taste in my mouth for Hampton Inns.
Staff was great at this Hampton Inn. Helpful, knowledgeable Friendly.
We received excellent service from this hotel! Greg at the front desk made a great first impression, even though we arrived to check in after midnight. In the morning, we realized that our plans for the day had changed somewhat. A man with the nametag of "Optimus Prime" generously allowed us to keep our belongings in our room and do a late check-out mid-afternoon so that we could return from our morning plans and change clothes before checking out. This generosity was given for free! They were also very happy to store our luggage for the rest of the day, even though we had checked out. The experience was made all the better by a free breakfast (both hot and cold items offered), as well as a great location near the White House and a few blocks from the Metro. We would go back again for sure. The room was pretty small, but in a city like DC you're really only there to sleep. This more than served our needs.
Very clean, room was nice. Staff was great. Pool not great, but we were sightseeing, so not a big deal.
Walking distance to White House and monuments $40 a day for parking
The location was great! The hotel is only a few blocks from the White House and National Mall. The valet parking was $36 per day and I don't believe there were any self parking options available other than on the street. Street parking must be paid until 10:00 on Saturday night and is free on Sunday.
The people next to our room was terrible. They had a party all night long and the courtyard staff seemed ignorant how much noisy they created to other guests.
The location was great and the value was excellent. We were told a breakfast was included so we expected a continental breakfast, but it was a la carte for fee instead. Not a huge deal though.
Nice room and clean and should be for $340 No fine dining within a 15 minute walk. Only college kid joints $36 a night to park the car?? Puh-lease! It costs less at the Ritz. Maid forgot to make up the room.
The room was very clean and the bed was incredibly comfortable. We ate breakfast at the in-hotel cafe and it was very good. They have a few booths in the cafe which have built-in TVs which would be very handy especially for families. It's a good location. There is a Subway and Starbucks on the same block and a CVS Pharmacy 2 blocks away which is open 24-hours a day. 3 1/2 blocks (1/3 mile) north is 2000 Penn Shopping Center with a bakery, Chipotle, Betucci's Brick Oven, and other restaurants and shops. The pool was small. There was a person swimming laps and the pool is so narrow that we felt like we were encroaching on her space.
