Exceptional 10,0
Sweet spot in DC with a staff (except for one) that are memorable in their assisting travelers. LUX bedding, descently quiet in sleeping areas, Excellent kitchen with a little dancing around when the area gets tight...plenty of charm in two sitting areas, and lots of outdoor space spread over a sidewalk patio to see all of Adams Morgan right out the door.
