Editorial review:

Located across from the White House, you are likely to see government high-flyers holding a meeting over breakfast in the Lafayette Room. The staff treats everyone the same, whether you are royalty or not. This hotel is also known for its spectacular rooftop bar. Request a room facing Lafayette Park Square for an excellent view.

    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.

    Very helpful on dinner reservatons and help getting around town.

    It needs a casual dinning area.

    I chose this hotel for its location. It did not let me down being just a few hundred yards from the White House. It is a quality hotel with superb staff / service. The food is good also !

    Overlooking the White House, this hotel is seemingly frequented daily by a who is who of American and international governments. As such, no photographs in public areas, please. If you are not wearing a suit and tie, or conservative dresses for the women, you will look and feel quite out of place. But this hotel is not to be missed because of location and visitors. Unless you are uncomfortable with luxury and high class environments then skip it. You'll find softer places to the north of this one.

    We were on a family vacation, and we liked the hotel - we usually try to stay in 4 or 5 star hotels. But I think we should have stayed in hotel to the north or northwest of this one - there is little retail here, and a limited choice of restaurants in the immediate area, as this is the area of the White House, Treasury, and other Depts such as Commerce, Interior, etc. Short walk to the Mall, is nice. But Washington has a great Metro and Bus system, so I'd stay out of this center for comfort and choice of dining, shipping etc near the hotel.

    Hotel is very clean, elegant but not expensive, staff is very friendly, its location is right behind the White House and all historical areas are in walking distance. You can see FBI ajants around.

    It was one of the best hotels I stayed in USA.

    The staff at the h-a separates this hotel from the other 98% of hotels in the country. The staff is professional, courteous, extra pleasant and obviously there to please the customer. You are spoiled, and will sense the difference when you stay anywhere else. Yes, you pay for the service, but it is worth it.
