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.
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 24 hr coffee station clean rooms Small room configured & supplied for the single business traveler. One bath towel 4 the family.
Location, convenience Rooms are dated, small and dark
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
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.
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.
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.
Staff and free snacks were great. Nothing
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 location was great as was the staff.
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.
Staff was excellent; great location The walls are paper thin and the person next door had a party until 3 am. Impossible to sleep.
The room was lovely, and the staff was courteous, helpful and efficient.
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.
The hotel in a very nice location and the room very comfort. they give to me Room No 403 we can't sleep because of the noise of the air-condations from out side. and the hotel staff are not frindly
Location. Easy walk to many attractions as well as to my business destination.
Service was excellent They changed me an extra 200 dollars when I checked into the hotel, despite prepaying on Kayak
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
terrace missing breakfast on Sunday
No maid service
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 - walkable to everything Requested several items - fix drain in tub, additional remote for TV and did not get them.
Had horrible service from front desk woman and did not get the room I was assured I would the day before. The maid staff was very helpful and friendly as was the man who worked overnight desk. The room was small with barely any windows but very clean and bed was comfortable. Will never stay in this hotel or Hyatt again based on promise of getting a street view room and then getting a room that literally overlooked all the AC units for hotel and no view of street. Also, the room they assigned us was not ready when we were sent up so we had to get shuffled into another with a worse view. The desk clerk was rude about the whole situation and when we inquired about parking right out front because the signs were very confusing she told us to "read the signs". Seriously- as if we hadn't already. Very rude. Our friends stayed too and had poor service from same two woman.
The location is excellent in the heart of DC, walking distance to many sights. The HVAC unit in my room failed and I was moved to another room, which also had a faulty HVAC unit, so I was moved to a third room. All of this took place at 8pm, which ruined my plans for the evening. The next day, I was a bit disappointed that neither the manager nor anyone on staff reached out to follow up. Generally, I expect more personal service from Hyatt hotels.
Super clean, well laid out room. Quite big for an urban hotel. Everything works well. Well thought out.
Reservation was not honored!
The staff was helpful and friendly. The breakfasts were disorganized and food ran out too soon. The coffee canisters were not replaced when they ran out. The bathroom door stuck, the desk light did not work, and the handset for the telephone did not work. When the shakedown is over, all should be well.
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.
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.
