Fodor's Review

Guest rooms are worn, but large and functional, and you can't get much closer to the National Mall—and some rooms have spectacular views of the river and the monuments. Smithsonian museums and several government agencies (USDA, USPS, and DOT) are within a few blocks, the Metro station is on the lower level, and a shopping mall adjoins the hotel with retail and restaurants. Guests traveling with furry friends can request a pet bed.
