What I liked:

Location. Near the Mall andd core Washington sites.

What the hotel could do better:

This hotel should not be on Tablet. It's not a charming, stylish hotel. It's a low-end, charmless, pedestrian hotel with interesting wallpaper in the halls.

Hotel Description

The contrast between the grandeur of Washington’s public face and the relative shabbiness of its functional spaces has long been a common observation. And until fairly recently, its hotels only strengthened the stereotype. But The Liason Capitol Hill, an Affinia Hotel belongs to a new, more style-conscious D.C., where the nightlife is on the upswing, the restaurant scene is booming, and the hotels, increasingly, live up to their greater architectural setting.

Of course from the outside The Liaison isn’t exactly the Capitol, but once you’re through its doors you’re treated to hotel interiors that leave the old drab D.C. in the dust. The bedrooms are simple and modern, stylish but quietly so, understated enough that they’re still palatable for more conservative audiences.

Bolder still are the public spaces, from the lobby bar with its almost Pop Art portraits of world leaders to the rooftop lounge, a warm-weather gem, and Art and Soul, a restaurant where the visual style, however impressive, takes a back seat: chef Art Smith won a James Beard Award for his inventive upscale take on traditional soul food.

Business travelers, as ever in this town, are certain to be well looked after, but the Liaison sets its sights equally on leisure guests — and nobody minds thoughtful details like the seasonal rooftop pool.
