We booked a birthday weekend trip for my mother in law and from the moment we entered were treated so well! We arrived early and were able to eat a delicious fresh lunch up by the incredible roof top pool. Servers delivered drinks and attendants switched out fresh towels regularly. It was beautiful! Our room was ready a little before check in time. We received a nice room but it was near the elevator, which bothered my mother in law, so we asked to switch. I felt bad asking to switch but explained it was Mommom’s birthday trip. We were treated so well by Ezekiel at the front desk! We were given a gorgeous room and treated so courteously. Upon arriving to the room, our bags had been delivered and a bottle of champagne and birthday message was left for her! It totally made her night! She couldn’t stop raving about it. In addition the property is so unique! The views are stunning, bedding was comfortable, fun furniture, and feminist artwork themes throughout made it a unique place. (Lots of Prochoice artwork… but also lots of general women empowerment themes). We were offered multiple waters, coffee in room, a very cool bathroom with cocoon rain shower. We also used the valet service and would recommend it. The gentlemen working the valet were friendly and prompt. Overall we loved our experience and thought the customer service was just above and beyond! What a fun spot and great location for walking around, within 5 blocks of the Whitehouse. Read less

This hotel was phenomenal. It felt incredibly safe, it was beautiful inside, the service was outstanding, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and the art and history within the hotel was so cool to see and photograph! I didn’t eat, but the bar looked fantastic!
