    My bf and I spent 3 nights in this hotel. When we checked in, we found the clientele was a little bit scary, they were more "party, gang" groups than regular people. The room we got didn't have table, chair, complimentary bottle of water and no full body length mirror. The worst thing is, there were bed bugs, we got some bites after staying for 3 nights. The roof top pool is very small, you can't really swim far, we guess it is just for "party". The restaurant downstairs called Zantan was over-rated. The waitress took our order wrong, the food was just ok. We had better food at the Dupont circle area. The location is great though. The Green Lantern bar is just behind the alley. You can walk to the gay area for about 15 min. The metro is not far either. It was great we got a deal , we definitely wouldn't pay original price 700 a night.
