Rated 5 out of 5 by Charley67 Total Comfort and Service!
I could not have had a better experience! Top notch in all regards.
The front desk person was welcoming, friendly, and efficient.
My car was quickly whisked away to parking for the night, and returned to me within minutes the next morning when I was ready to depart.
My room was clean, spacious, and tastefully decorated. I actually slept better than in my own bed!
The water for my shower was steamy hot and the towels quite sumptuous.
I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
This hotel gets a "two thumbs up" rating from me, for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by WashintonTraveler Great Hotel and even Greater staff.
Just finished a two day stay for business at the Four Points Sheraton in Washington D.C. and was very impresed. The rooms are great, good size, great television and furnishings, and the entirre hotel is squeaky clean. The location is central to just about everything in D.C, and the most noteable item is the staff. Everyone is very friendly. polite and professonal. This especially goes for the houskeeping team who gives you the biggest good morning or good afternoon with a great smile every time you see one of them in the hallyway.

Rated 4 out of 5 by StanB Excellent balance of features, location, and price
The hotel has an amazing location in a walking distance to the major historical landmarks and museums in Washington. Staff is friendly and rooms are cozy.
There's excellent balance of facilities, location, and price for this hotel. Some of the higher-up ones charge for Wifi or using pool/gym facilities.
The only small concern of mine was the pool at the roof-top is small and not well-vented - therefore it smells of chlorine. There's a roof-top terrace where it's a grate place to have a break in the aft or in the evening.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Alice Room old and out of date
Pros: The room is fairly clean and operative.Staff are helpful. We requested a crib for our baby and it was sent to our room soon after our arrival. The location is great, within walking distance to downtown, convention center, etc.
Cons: The equipment are out of date. There is only a very small coffee maker, which can brew one cup of coffee at one time. no space for almost anything near wash basin in the bathroom. On the bathroom door, the hook is loose and the nails were exposed, like it would fall in the next second. It actually fell during our stay and we had to push it back. There is no hand soap inside the bathroom, nor the tissue box in the room. We had to call the frond desk and ask for those stuff. There were some stains on the comforter and bed cover.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dcnewbie Pleasant stay
We stayed this weekend for a wedding in town with 34 other rooms. It was very clean and comfortable. I didn't have a need for any service besides checking in so I can't comment personally. However, my sister still did not have a room until 4:30 when we were to be getting ready for the wedding at 5:00. She was compensated with free breakfast, but this could have been a major problem. The parking is very limited but that seems to be a city-wide problem. Many of the wedding guests gathered at the second floor lobby after the wedding and although we were laughing and having a good time, no one stopped us. Breakfast was good but was expensive. Again, that seems to be typical for the city. It was an overall pleasant stay and I would recommend the hotel for its value.

Rated 2 out of 5 by whatever99 Perhaps I am spoiled
Felt like going back in time, to when hotel rooms were bland and very average at best. I have not spent many evenings in a Four Points hotel, and because of availability in DC this week had little choice. Will not likely return nor select a four points in any other city unless I have to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FatherGoose Hotel where you would want to live.
The clean modern feel and look of this hotel matches its location, adjoining the hot Logan Circle neighborhood, to the north, and the vibrant center of downtown, walkable out the door through MacPherson Square Park. (Access to the fine regional METRO System is on the far corner of the park, too.) In a livable, walkable town, this location does two important things: puts you in a place you enjoy being, and recharges you from the intense work or play of your stay, with indoor pool and open roofdeck with nice urban views.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Twinjay20136 Dinner and Concert in DC
As locals from northern Virginia, we could have stayed anywhere in DC but decided to check out the Four Points at 12th and K, NW. We couldn't be happier. Checked in smoothly and went to a local restaurant for dinner before catching a concert at Verizon Center. All were within easy walking distance although the front desk and doorman coordinated a cab to dinner. Outstanding service. While not a high-end luxury label, Four Points certainly met our expectations for this night out. Quiet comfort and quality service!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nath Disappointing pool & bath
There is a rope that divides the small pool in half along the WIDTH of the pool. So it is annoying/impossible to do laps. I was told that this is due to the city inspectors request, but I've never seen this done anywhere else. DC needs to revise it's regulations if that is the case. Ridiculous.
The shower/bath needs to be replaced. Fixtures are rusty and the coat of paint that they put over the vinyl is cracking and peeling so I couldn't take a bath :(
The staff was okay - maids were great, front desk adequate, but when I needed a taxi I had to fend for myself because whoever was on call was not at the other end of the walkie-talkie.
At $279 a night, I expect more.
The food in the vending machine is waaay too expensive. Do what I did and go to the CVS down the block.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JoelH Terrific Hotel with Great Staff
As an SPG member, I was very pleased by the warm and welcoming reception I received upon check-in. They even allowed me to preview my room before checking-in to see if I would be satisfied, many thanks to Kendra and the hotel staff for their genuine welcome. I have stayed at Starwood hotels across the country and this hotel has by far the most attentive, friendliest staff I have met. Minor suggestions: update hallways (new carpeting, etc.), put fitness room and pool together (great pool by the way!), I didn't like walking by the restaurant in my workout clothes, I would add security to the pool door - anyone from off the street can access the pool without a room key. Other than that, this hotel had great rates, a terrific breakfast and its location is terrific. Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by MarkTexNYC Great location, solid property
Excellent K Street location close to everything -- and really easy to get to on the Metro from DCA.
Staff is incredible. They take great care of the guests and pay attention to the details. During my first stay I commented about the desk lamp being poorly designed. During my next stay (same exact room), the desk lamp had been replaced. Impressive.
Free breakfast for Platinum members as well as drink coupons.
Clean rooms, no fuss. In my experience this property has had lower rates than other hotels in the area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Molessie Perfect!!!
My husband and I were in town for a long weekend. The hotel was recommended to us by a family member. It met all of our expectations in regards to location, cleanliness and customer service. The room was exceptionally clean and surprisingly, very quiet! The king bed was comfortable (especially after walking around the city for hours and hours during the day)! The hotel is conveniently located just a few blocks away from 2 Metro stations and there are always cabs waiting out front to take you anywhere you want to go! The staff was very helpful and very friendly! I had trouble printing my baseball tickets in the business center so a lady at the front desk was kind enough to print them out for me! I would highly recommend this hotel! You can't go wrong with a Starwood property!

Rated 2 out of 5 by GAD10 Don't stay here. My worst SPG experience.
Off to a bad start when I arrinve at 2:45 and told my rooms are being cleaned. Left cell phone # and was told I'd be called when they are ready.
Went for a late lunch and stroll around the White House. Returned at 5PM (no call back yet on my cell) and told 1 room ready and other not yet cleaned. Went to 1st room with promise they'd call in 10 minutes.
30 minutes later, head back to front desk (no call). Ran into employee going into the 2nd room (next to 1st) to check if clean. Get to the front desk and they have no idea of room status until they begin chatting on walkie-talkies (annoying !!!). Finally get 2nd room 3+ hours after arrival (which was entered on my reservation). Nice way to treat a Gold Member and traveling companions who will likely never become Starwood Owners.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JPL57 Nice Hotel, Poor Restaurant
Very Nice and clean hotel, this is the second time I have stay there and had the same problem both times. The restaurant staff and food are terrible. I wanted to order off the item but my the time the waiter came back (10 minutes), I had to do the buffet or be late. Buffet is bare bones compared to other hotels for the same $. It took me three requested and over 20 minutes to get a cup of tea. Upon leaving, I got a free cup at the bar only to have coffee grounds in my water. Same problems at previous visit

Rated 4 out of 5 by Loner1967 A respite after the storm
Due to the thunder storms we were forced to stay in a hotel because of no electricity. We stayed at the Four Points Sheraton.
The location was great. We had a good meal at the restaurant and our room was very clean.
We arrived before check in and rooms weren't ready. The young lady in training, I forgot her name, took our information and called us when it became available. A nice surprise.
Another nice touch was the voicemail from the General Manager welcoming us AND a follow up call from the front desk.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AIPAC Not Satisfied
The room was average. The toilet handle had to be held done hard to properly flush. Then the toilet would run and I had to get up frequently to jiggle the handle. The entry light made a very loud buzzing sound. Also, I was woken up by a loud humming sound coming from the floor above. The people at the front desk didn't seem to care when I brought these things to their attention. I will be in the area next year for the same conference and will be staying elsewhere. Will advise my friends to do the same.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DCTraveler2012 Needs Work
I stayed at this hotel for the first time and felt it needed some significant work. Check in was very smooth but after that the rest of the experience was lacking. From having to call room service 3 times and over 50 ring for someone to pick up, to a gym that can only support 1 person doing any weight works out, to the not getting a wake up call in the morning, and an average hotel room, there are many better places in the city to stay at similiar rates. I have stayed in DC hotels for over 2 years now

Rated 3 out of 5 by NYCMom The Small Details Add Up
The Pros: It's close to the Metro. Our room and public areas were very clean. There is a nice rooftop indoor pool and a gym. The Old Town Trolley picks up from the hotel. Check in and check out went qucikly.
The Cons: The electronic iron was spewing white stuff when I used it. The blow dryer was not working. There weren't any coffee stirrers in the coffee tray. The showerk know kept coming off. All annoying little things that I did not bother calling the front desk about but these all add up. .

Rated 3 out of 5 by PrincessK8 Good location for K street activities
I stayed at this hotel from Friday evening until Tuesday afternoon. The experience was fine, except for Saturday night. Someone was having a party down the hall that night, that didn't get broken up until 4 am.
Aside from the Saturday night sleep disturbance, this hotel was very quiet. The location was great for getting around the K street area as well as walking to a number of museums.
I ate breakfast at the restaurant in the hotel, but it was only good enough to justify using my free coupons. If I had to pay, I probably would not have eaten there at all.
The free bottles of water were great. The internet was too slow for me to even connect, so I don't know what it would have been like to try to use it for work.
Something that really decreased the utility of the room was the lamp on the desk. It was garishly bright and there was no way to adjust the angle to prevent extreme glare in my eyes.
I would not recommend this hotel if you are planning to try to get any work done in your room. If you are just needing a clean, quiet place to sleep downtown, it's a great choice (except on a Saturday night).

Rated 4 out of 5 by FragileXAdvocacy Restaurant Understaffed
I've visisted the hotel twice in back to back years. Both times the restaurant was understaffed. If you ask for ketchup it will take 20 minutes. Why do you only have 2 waitstaff employed? We won't eat there next year when we go back for Advocay Day.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TJoey Only because it is inexpensive
In a city like DC when on business, many have few options due to budgetary constraints. This Four Points will satisfy those on a budget, but don't expect much. The hotel is old. The wi-fi is awful. The service at the desk is good and in the restaurant, but the bell-guys are useless and simply mill around the front ignoring people walking by them. The location is okay, not too close to a metro, but not too far either. If it was on my own dime, I'd stay at another Starwood in the area easily.

The hotel was inviting upon arrival and location is excellent for this trip. The rooms are tired and need new carpet! Beds were very comfortable as well as bedding. Furnishings were nice. The bathrooms are too small and uncomfortable. They need to be expanded...my corner king has the space to enlarge, not sure about the standard room. I do appreicate the wi-fi, fitness club access and water inlcuded in the room rate. I would have appreciated more than one water daily...to make coffee with.

I have stayed at many hotels, but in addition to the excellent service, friendliness and professionalism of the staff, the fitness room is outstanding with state of the art equipment and attention to details, such as: water, clean towels, emergency equipment, and earphones for each guess to connect to the audio available in all the machines. The person in charge of the design and implementation must be commended for a superb job. I did not miss any workout during my stay. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Barbiez Nice hotel
I wasn't sure what to expect as it was our first visit to D.C. We were pleasantly surprised. Hotel accommodations were very nice. Rooms were small for 4 people but it was nice and comfortable. Although it was 4 (2 adults, 2kids) of us staying they only ever left 3 towels so we had to ask for an extra each day. Minor issue. The kids were excited about the pool. We found out that many other kids were excited also as it was packed when we visited it. It was a very small pool so it became crowded quickly. It was nice that they supplied towels pool side. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Parking was expensive, but I guess that is to be expected. We loved the convenience of this hotel. We walked everywhere and there were some great restruants nearby. Overall we had a great time and would stay there again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TypicalTraveler Enjoyable stay!
Although it was my first "Four Points" stay, I knew ahead of time that the bed would be comfortable bc of the sweet sleepers bed. The room was clean, the staff was attentive. There was one small issue about parking being charged twice by accident. It was the easiest correction I've ever encountered. Not only did they automatically credit back ASAP without a hassle but then gave me some extra points without me asking. The staff here was excellent and helpful throughout my stay.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DTNJ you get what you pay for
What i did not like about the hotel and the room: even with all lamps turned on, the room was dark, the ventilation was poor, the double beds were small and of low quality, the towels were of poor quality, and you cannot adjust the temperature of the water in the shower. The breakfast in the hotel's restaurant involved old, stale, and dry items. What I liked about the hotel: the staff - all very friendly, professional, and efficient and the indoor pool. Won't stay here again.

WE could not have picked a better hotel for our 5 day stay in Washington. The personnel were fantastic, especially Ronnie, the location was idle, and the weather was gorgeous. Visiting the monuments, museums, sites of Washington was made easy because the location was perfect. Along with a wonderful dining room at Four Points, there were a plethora of other choices in the area. I hope we can return soon, for there are many, many more sites to see in our wonderful Capitol!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Diana60 Great staff, facility issues
The front desk staff could not have been more accommodating. However, he room doors fit so tightly that they need to be slammed shut, creating a constant noise nuisance that was amplified by the thin walls. In addition, the internet kept going off line. Tech support varied from bad (Ben: it's your computer, there's nothing I can do about it) to good (PJ: figured out that the hotel modem needed to be rebooted each time.) A hassle to have to keep dealing with that.

very disappointed for a Four Points . Front desk staff was unprofessional and not helpful . Room Service Staff was amazing , always friendly and food was always delivered hot . The restaurant staff , hostess was rude , unprofessional. I left after 30 minutes of waiting for a waitress . Hostess said she was on break . I tried to eat there 2 times, and each time gave up and ordered room service.. The fee for parking is ridiculous for people staying at your hotel . I could not wait for the week to end so I could leave. so many inconveniences and lack of amenities. I asked 3 times for shower gel. It was empty when I arrived and was never filled . The carpet was dirty . Hair was on the bathroom floor and the air system in the room was loud. I pray to God that I never have to experience another week as I did when I stayed at your hotel.
