There was one staff that worked at night which made my stay better. I requested to speak to a manager but I was told I had to email them because they do not come to the property. My email was never answered and I asked for refund that was never addresses.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This is a nicely designed hotel that is very near a metro stop and the tourist hot spots (White House, National Mall). The rooms are small and don't have much storage space - no chest of drawers in my room. The bathroom was of a good size and there was a rain shower head. There was no information sheet about what the hotel offered - I learned by accident that there was free coffee in the lobby. The cleaner was a bit absent-minded - no towels in my room when I arrived, and the bath mat disappeared on day 2. The location is great - very near to all the touristy places. There is a metro stop just 2 blocks away.

The Architect is great for the price. The location is about 4 blocks from a metro. Not the closest option but an easy enough walk. It is in a business area with many dining choices. It could use a renovation - it is outdated - but again, that is understandable as it is lower priced than other hotels in the DC area.

I liked the aesthetic of my room but it had a bad paint job and the accomodation itself was uncomfortable. Front desk very friendly. No parking.STAFF IS WONDERFUL AND INFORMATIVE. i liked the experience and history. So much wasted potential here.
