The got the hotel via priceline and there are much better hotels out there at a better price. I would recommend the Hilton Garden in Washington DC. - was about $30.00 a night cheaper than this one. Fortunately, we only booked this room for one night.
We also reserved a roll away bed, but when we got there they said they didn't have any.
Great Hotel! Be careful of online booking, though!from littlegirltree
My husband and I were given a room meant for 1 guest, which meant it was a bit small and only came equipped w/ 1 robe, but otherwise wwere bathand body works - nice! We had a view of the square, but other than the homeless guys napping on the benches in the square & the hotel's valet's, not much to look at. Not many restaruants nearby worth venturing out for, most places close early or are bad chain retaurants. Nonetheless, it was a wonderful room for an incredible rate. The staff were very helpful and accomodating. Made our trip very pleasurable! (^_^)
Be Nice to the Front Desk Agent!!from A TripAdvisor Member
When I first arrived at the hotel, the bellmen were slow to help us with our bags, by the time he came out of the lobby, we were already at the door. Right inside another woman was loudly complaining that she had stayed at very nice hotels before and that this hotel's concierge was the worst she had ever encountered. Not a very good first impression! However, I had no problems with the concierge when I asked the to help me find a restaurant I wanted to go to for lunch.
I came back to check in and the only front desk agent on duty was on the phone. I waited patiently then remarked that it must be difficult to both answer phones and serve at the person checking guests into the hotel. (I sympathize with hotel employees since I am a student in hotel administration and have worked in line level positions as well) He agreed and then proceeded to look up my reservation. The Deluxe King room I had requested was unavailable, and he asked if I would mind a stand-up shower. I wasn't sure what he meant, I thought he meant a room with shower stall only. I asked if I could switch rooms the next day if unhappy and he said with a wink that of course I could, but I wouldn't want to since it was a very nice room.
Turns out he had upgraded us to a suite with a full living room with pull-out couch, two televisions, marble wetbar, HUGE bathroom with marble flooring, a beautiful shower curtain, and well lit bathroom counter area. According to the hotel website I thought all the beds were Tempur-Pedic, this bed was not, but had a very comfortable pillow top mattress and tons of pillows.
Housekeeping did a great job, everything looked great. I really liked the small details like the Bath & Body Works products in the bathroom and how the housekeeping arranged a small fan on the edge of the bathtub.
My only complaint is that this room was right next to the elevator (probably because it is handicapped accessible) and if you were sitting in the living room you could hear the faint "ding" noise made when people using the elevator arrived at the floor.
Would stay here again, but would bring a lighted mirrorfrom Tee726
Best bed everfrom MonsterBite
The bed was incredible. Clearly new. One of those Sealy Gel beds. We slept incredible well. Though the walls are thin and people unwittingly slam their doors...a lot.
Great location. Walk to Mall and Dupont Station. There is a great wifi (free0 cafe on 17th st at R called Steam. Arab owned and operated. Very friendly guys. And they serve light food late (midnight/1am)
I would definitely stay here again. Very worth the money paid ($125/night).

Enjoyed my stay at the Washington Terracefrom MarlaD521
I was in DC for a conference, and booked my hotel through Priceline and got a SUPER deal on this hotel for 6 nights (checked in Sunday 8/1.) I had a room on the 5th floor. When I checked in, I asked for a king size bed if possible, and I was accommodated cheerfully. Maybe that was the right thing to do...I figured that the nicer rooms would probably have king size beds. (just a theory.) So....the room was a bit on the small side, partially because the bed was large! But it was clean and had a very good size closet and armoire with drawers/TV. There was also a work area. The bathroom was VERY small, but clean and modern with beautiful ceramic tile and marble vanity. The towels were of excellent quality....I think they were on the "new" side. Very fluffy! The housekeeping was very good too. I came back from my workshop on Monday and the bathroom was tidied and my "stuff" was neatly laid out on a washcloth. There is also turndown service with chocolates. I requested wake up calls each morning, and there were no problems. If I were to get this hotel again through Priceline, it would be fine with me. It's a little bit of a walk to the McPherson metro, but nothing too bad. Also! Right around the corner from the hotel is a Whole Foods market. It was great for me because I was there by myself, and with this great supermarket around the corner, I could go there for dinner because they have seating for people to eat. It was just a nice feature because it saved me a lot of money eating at restaurants alone! There is also a CVS right there, and there are Starbucks on practically every corner (I am not exaggerating!) The criticisms: The desk staff was kind of unprofessional/new/inexperienced. My husband commented that when he called my room at night, the hotel operator couldn't speak English very well and he got the impression the hotel must be a disaster. I think that finding good help in the hotel business is tough, especially in cities like DC, where there is such a demand for help. On the whole, the staff certainly tried to please, were always friendly and always said hello/good morning/etc. I would stay there again, but would be sure to ask for a king size bed, just to be safe!

Top Local Tips for Washington DC
book early book early as this busy city gets booked quickly and then prices jump
Metro Metro is a great way to get around the city. Park the car at the hotel and walk or use Metro.
Metro Definitely utilize the Metro while in DC. It was very easy and we thought that the price was not bad either. We paid $7 each for a day pass and used it multiple times a day. Stations were clean and we never once felt unsafe.
