Rated 4 out of 5 by ccurly It's a great hotel in this price range!
Yes, The Four Points is not quite a Sheraton, but it's not pretending to be. It's in a great location and for the price, you can't beat it. Everyone was so nice and the hotel assistants and concierge were helpful. It's two blocks from the Metro and that's all you need to get around and it's close to great restaurants, too. This hotel met my expectations! And Ronnie was awesome!

The location was good due to the closeness of the Metro and downtown. Was kind of disappointed that the noise level and ability to hear the noise in the hallways even when away from the elevator. The rooms were average, but price was great for the location.

This is a wonderful hotel in the perfect part of DC. This is one of the nicest Four Points I've ever encountered. Rooms were comfortabel and clean. Staff was VERY friendly and accommodating. The restaurant was a wonderful surprise and very good. This hotel is a excellent value and I would suggest trying it out!

Service at this hotel was amazing, always received a warm greeting from all employees. I had a name bag on so I was greeted by name as well. Employees always had smiles on their face, exactly what you want to see.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jess Great location big let down
Could not get an email receipt and was treated poorly when I called to ask for one. Should not have agreed to a hotel receipt. Rooms were old and run down and carpet was dirty. A new bed spread just can't hide the dirtiness of the room.

I have stayed at the downtown Sheraton twice a year for the past several years. I have never been disappointed by any of the rooms, the staff or the food. It is very convienent and will continue to stay there on every trip to DC.

I always struggle to find good DC properties, but this one is constantly at the top of my list. The pricing is always wonderful, and while it is not a new property, it is well maintained and incredibly comfortable.

This place is a gem. My family and I had the pleasure of staying at the Four Points by Sheraton in DC on 12/24 - 12/25 and had a wonderful/stress free stay. The team went above and beyond to make sure we had a great visit. Wolde (bellman) Belema (front desk) and the valet parking attendant (pm shift) were excellent.
The Hotel is very clean and had a stylish holiday decorations. Thank you for having us. We would like to come back soon.

There was tremendous SPG platinum recognition at this Hotel. The hotel is in downtown and close to lots of attractions. Gym is typical bare bones, and was a downside.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Charlie3620 Big Dissapointment!
We had to unload our own luggages. The concierge/night security person just stared at me and my children who ended up loading the luggages at the trolley. We were promised a microwave oven upon check-in. Forty minutes later and only after following up, they tell me there is none available!! I was suppose to get an upgrade the next day but the manager on trainee (named Jeffrey) said there was no record. After 20 minutes later and going in and out of the back room, another staff member found it. The pool in the premises is so small it was a joke. And if you get the 1-bedroom suite, be prepared that your bedroom will not have a window at all!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Laxguy Worst at a SPG hotel in years
When I booked the room I read about the street noise so I requested a high floor trying to get away from it. We checked in late in the day so what did we get? The 5th floor on the street but that noise was not the worst of it. I can handle some car horns, emergency vehicles and such although the windows could use better sound proofing. The hotels solution is to go cheap and provide earplugs in the room.
There was a family reunion in the hotel with 150+ members. Even after I questioned the Night Manager (In Training) about the noise, he put us on the main floor with the reunion groups activities so hall noise went on all night long. Banging walls, slammimg doors, yelling and running in the halls. The 4 of us finally got some real sleep after 4am when the reunion group did but they were up at 7am ready to go again! Also, the beds were awful. One was lumpy and the other sloped to one side. Finally, just as others have stated the room was quite small but the real problem was noise.
Deborah was great in the morning helping us move to another SGP property for the rest of our vacation, offering apologies and comping our parking. Our new hotel is also on a major street but not even close to the same amount of street or hotel noise as the 4 points.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MomT Meeting Stay
The hotel was overall pretty good. It was centrally located so it was a block walk in almost every direction to get something to eat. Within walking distance to museums and memorials.
I was disappointed in my room. Very small and with the furniture already in it I didn't really have a place to put my suitcase. My room overlooked the alley and dumpsters, and felt really close to the other buildings so I felt like people could see me. I tried the hotel's option for "going greeen", perhaps I misunderstood the deal, but I was there for three days and my room wasn't touched once. Tought they would at least make the bed and refresh my coffee and bath toiletrires.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SusieQ56 Disappointing
We were in DC for only 1 night on our way back to Atlanta. I used 11000 starpoints for a room at the 4 points Sheraton, which is more than I am used to, but it was a big city, so I figured it was worth it. The location is pretty good, within walking distance to many attractions. The front desk staff were very friendly and accommodating. That's where the good things about this hotel stopped.
Now for the disappointing things: the air-conditioning was either freezing or HOT. If the thermostat was on anything above 68, hot air blew out. I should have requested a new room right then, but we were anxious to get out an explore, and it was only 1 night, right?
That night when we got in bed, we noticed that the comforter was filthy. Spots everywhere. We took it off the bed and turned the AC off so we didn't freeze to death that night. The noise in the hall (slamming doors, loud talking) went late into the night. The toilet ran constantly. Needless to say, my husband and I did not get a good night sleep for our 11000 points. I got in shower the next morning and realized the shampoo bottle was sealed, but EMPTY!! Had to wash my hair with soap. What else could go wrong? We had to get out of there immediately. We were comped our 45.00 overnight parking though. I wished I had my points back, but that wasn't offered. I would not stay at this location again. As a gold member, I expected more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Photow This hotel is so so
The hotel is very average. Rooms are ok. The reception on our TV would fade out periodically so we had to turn it off and back on. The 1/2 price for wine on Tuesdays at the restaurant was a nice deal. The bar next to the restaurant was lively and noisy. The pool was small and roped off into deeper and shallow end so it was mainly for wading. We had to get a new key for our room twice during our 4 nights there because the front desk had trouble linking together the separate days of our stay. They charge you $15 to bring a small refrigerator into your room that should already be there. We had to keep asking for the free bottles of H20.

Our room was booked through THS for a 3-day volleyball tournament. We were obligated to use a ‘preferred’ hotel for a special team rate. Well, there was nothing special about this hotel. My family of four arrived at approximately 8pm. Upon check-in, I was told there was no refrigerator for the room. Strike one. Then I was told the parking lot was full and I’d have to park a block away. Strike two. Oh, and the rate for parking in their hotel was staggering…$44/day (I eventually got in). Nice little ads-on for the convenience. Considering this hotel is three blocks from the convention center, you’d think they would be more equipped then they were. Certainly we were not the first large group to stay there. Oh, and did I mention the pool was closed all weekend? Strike three. But the front desk heard it all and had a ‘take it or leave it’ attitude. We got to our room and it was small. Did I say small? I called to upgrade to a suite and there were none available. Understandable. At this point, I was going to transfer to another hotel, but didn’t want to affect the rest of the group, plus my daughter’s friends were all there. After sweating all night, I realized the a/c was not working. We called maintenance and they promptly fixed the a/c unit and they were courteous. But the a/c still made some loud noises. Now the Wi-Fi connection. Third floor, strong signal but lousy Internet service. It was slow or not responsive so much so, I ended up tethering with my cell phone. Also, if there is a large group, be prepared to wait for one of two elevators. One last note, the beds are a bit soft for my taste. Woke up with a sore back each day. So in all, we made the best of it however, I would not recommend this hotel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JDT82 King sized room with a tight bathroom
Stayed at this hotel while in DC to visit the Whitehouse. It is about 3 blocks away from the Whitehouse. Good location with restaurants all around. Parking was good. The only issue I had was the layout of the bathroom. The bathroom was way to small for a King sized room. You could not open the door while someone was on the commode. The faucet for the sink was even angled in a odd way due to the lack of counter space.

Location wise the hotel is in a great area. The day staff did not have knowledge on what to do when I asked them for there opinion on where to eat and what to go see when I got there. Parking is very expensive, my parking for 2 days cost more than my actual stay at the hotel. The front desk staff stated that they upgraded my room b/c of my SPG status but the room was TINY! Bathroom is small and there wasn’t any actual room to move around in my hotel room. As a long time member of Starwood I didn't feel like a elite guest. Also walls of the hotel are paper thin. You can hear outdoor noises. I wouldn’t stay at this location again!

Rated 3 out of 5 by T1GS1 Staff was excellent!
Rooms were lacking, there was not a lot of space and the bathroom was miserable! The containers of shampoo, conditioner, and body wash screwed to the shower wall just felt institutional. Going green should be more about the hotel's commitment, and less about the customer's commitment. Green should not equal hotels taking shortcuts or becoming cheap. Show us how you recycle, donate used soap bars to organizations that remake them and distribute to third world countries...don't put the responsibility on me. I am not paying for a night's sleep to be patronized on how to help the environment by a rewards system for good behavior.

Rated 3 out of 5 by tjoyall Restaurant Closed for the Weekend!!!!
We arrived at 4:00 PM and upon check in we were given restaurant hours. We had just enough time for dinner and a couple of drinks before attending a show nearby. To our surprise we went to the restaurant only to find it closed for the entire weekend! Asked the front desk and they said "yeah, sorry about that - the restaurant rents the space and we are not affiliated with it" WHAT??????? We were sent on a search mission to find a place (on foot) to grab a bite to eat. Not being familiar with the area we literally wondered around downtown in cold weather to find a last minute option that did not require reservations. Very dissappointed in staff and accommodations.

I booked two rooms this past weekend for the night of April 27th. The two rooms were a floor apart, but had the same complaints - loud noises all night from people screaming on the streets.
As a platinum member, I would have thought I would have been provided two rooms on higher floors, closer together, or even heard the hotel ask the people on the street to be quiet or move their party.
At one point, I called housekeeping for additional towels, the phone continued to ring and I was met with an answering machine twice. I called the front desk and they promised towels to be sent up - they never arrived.
I was completely unsatisfied with the hotel and the staff.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lisagg A basic hotel that is more reasonably priced than most other starwoods.
Staff is friendly and helpful.
Necessary room improvements:
- extra toilet paper roll is placed behind hanging roll, which makes it so you can not get hanging roll to move....find another place for extra roll!
-YOU NEED MORE OUTLETS BY BEDS!!!!
Having them by the desk is nice but not sufficient when you want to sit in bed and use/ charge your laptop and charge your cell phone over night, yet have it by your bedside. Some hotels provide lamps that have outlets on them....just a thought...
-beds and pillows where very comfortable
-room was clean
-I like my 2 complimentary water bottles!

Rated 3 out of 5 by CT80 Not bad, not amazing
A good hotel downtown for a great price. Room was a bit smaller than other hotels I had stayed in, but the location and price couldn't be beat. Slightly disappointed that the hotel required a $50 deposit put on my debit card despite prepaying for the room and then told me it could be nearly a month before the deposit is credited back to my account.
We ordered a bottle of wine for room service, which was promptly delivered and the wine was good and reasonably priced. Ate breakfast the next day, which was fine.
Overall though, the room was good. The bed was comfortable, the ac was in good condition, and the TV had a sleep timer. Would stay there again if we needed to.

We were disappointed that we were not recognized for our Starwood member status. The condition of the bathroom was poor. The bathroom size was quite small compared to the room size which was a good size. We were wigged out after arriving and finding several black hairs on some pillows and in the bathroom. Clearly the room had not been cleaned that well. The pictures of the pool on the website are quite deceptive. My children were rather disappointed at the small size of the pool. I was uncomfortable with seeing some bugs on the pool deck that were not your typical fly. Not sure what they were, but I did not like it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by notanicehotel Not a nice hotel
Just so you know my television did not work, I did not get any HD channels and the regular channels I got had no sound. I called down to have it fixed and they sent a security officer to my room to “fix” the problem. Then he left and came back and unplugged the tv from the wall, and plugged it back in. Obviously this did nothing and my television did not work.
I also noticed that the bathtub is literally falling apart. There are parts of the tub that are coming off and exposing the bottom layer of the tub. It is INCREDIBLY gross and made for a VERY uncomfortable stay.
I also called down to complain about these things and I was told that something would be done, and someone would get back to me. Nothing was done, and nobody got back to me.

I've stayed here a few times and always have a wonderful experience. This hotel has a fantastic central location in DC. You can easily walk to the metro and there are so many great restaurants nearby. My business colleagues are always impressed. The staff is super friendly and helpful anticipating my needs before I did. The little touches like the staff always using my name was the icing on the cake. Plus I always love the free WiFi and bottled water in my room.
