Unfortunately, just another unsuccessful to re-brand an aging hotel with a coat of paint and a few throw pillows. Not sure how many name changes this place has gone through in the last 10 years, but no one has been able to make a go of it. I was highly disappointed at the quality of the product. The service levels were not what I expected for… Read more

Frank and the staff at the front desk were super helpful after I misplaced a swimsuit at the pool. They took extra time to accompany me to grab the suit and did all that they could to assist. Wonderful service and super kind staff.

We stayed at The Ven the week of DC’s reopening and Pride Week and would not hesitate to return. We received the most authentic, gracious, high level of service in this little boutique hotel. Every.Single.Employee was happy. Heck, every guest we encountered was happy! Rooms tastefully decorated, clean, and perfectly serviced. The lobby was done in a modern contemporary design, with spacious seating areas for a quick game of tic tac toe, reading, or working. The rooftop pool was so clean, modern, and inviting. It was a very short walk to DuPont Circle where there’s a weekend Farmer’s Market. A 45 minute walk to The National Mall. A lot of very walkable areas and a Metro Hub one block away. And the staff we can’t say enough! We didn’t get everyone’s name but every staff member, from the ones who greeted us in passing in the hallway to the ones that we got on a first name basis with were outstanding! Thank you Jorge, Tyler, Fassil, Lyle, Wanda, and the others who’s names I didn’t get. We appreciate how hard you worked to ensure a comfortable stay. For those who complained about slow service (we did not experience this, but a few extra minutes of your time should only matter if it’s a medical or safety emergency), minimal staff (5 letters—-COVID), and things that didn’t affect your ability to rest in a safe and comfortable space, then I would highly encourage those to feel grateful and post about the positive things. Try Da Hong Pao for dim sum, Nooshi for Asian Fusion, and Brasserie Libertie for French. Peace and enjoy your trip to DC. Read less

My partner and I spend 5 nights at The Ven recently and absolutely loved every minute of the stay. The staff at the property all went out of their way to make our trip as special and memorable as possible. From check-in to check-out, every single person was kind, welcoming, positive, and helpful. The hospitality at The Ven rivals that of 5-star properties without question. We were in a room on the 4th floor overlooking Massachusetts Ave. The room was spacious, clean, comfortable, bright, and the A/C worked extremely well. The bed was very comfortable as were the linens and bathroom towels. My partner and I slept extremely well and soundly during each night of our stay. There was absolutely no hotel noise from the halls and the curtains kept the room nice and dark. The rooftop... Oh my goodness, The Ven has the most phenomenal rooftop pool! During the day there was a pool attendant who helped us with towels, cold water, and played great music. We brought adult beverages in plastic containers, an ice bucket from the room, and had the most wonderful time in the sun. The rooftop has a fantastic view of the city skyline. I believe they also participate in Resort Pass which would be highly recommended for those not staying at the property. The hotel bar area has a nice self-service water bar with plastic cups, lids, and straws which we used frequently. The lobby has snacks and a refrigerator with food, drinks, and adult beverages for any late-night cravings. The property is about a 4-minute walk to the Dupont Circle metro line and about a 4-minute walk to a Starbucks. One block to the south is a great beer, wine, and liquor store as well as a pizza place and french bakery. The location of The Ven cannot be beaten. Overall, I would stay here again given the opportunity. We just had the most wonderful trip and most of that was due to the outstanding staff at The Ven. Many thanks to the management and owners of The Ven for providing such a welcoming, comfortable, and clean property! Read less
