The stairs were not great with our luggage - we were on the 3rd level, and we're middle-aged, so found it a bit of a strain. We would've been happy to pay a staff member to lug them up and down for us. Coming from Australia where we have a big emphasis on recycling and conserving energy, we noticed the amount of waste. Bins for recycling (glass, paper, plastic) are standard in Australia, and we are encouraged to save water and electricity (eg, turn of lights during the daytime). We found the USA generally quite backward in this regard, although California was probably the most advanced in this way.
A very welcoming experience. Staff were friendly and helpful. We loved the building - great character. Our room was lovely, very clean. Breakfast was really good with many healthy options available, as was having access to a fridge.The location was fantastic, and such a pretty area. Washington is a wonderful place to visit - in fact, I could happily live there!
