"A dozen rooms are peppered around an exquisite 1883 Romanesque mansion, all just set off enough from Dupont to be quiet, but close enough to the action for you to get raucous." Full review

A dozen rooms are peppered around an exquisite 1883 Romanesque mansion, all just set off enough from Dupont to be quiet, but close enough to the action for you to get raucous, if you so choose.

"Parked in the midst of D.C.'s most vibrant social scene, it is a scene-stealer in its own right: a midcentury-modern hotel with a theatrical aesthetic that disguises its Irish roots." Full review
