This hotel is the best hotel I have ever stayed at and I consider myself fortunate enough to have stayed at several good ones. This is one of the best locations of any hotel anywhere. Every staff member we encountered treated us like we personally had the power to fire them if they didn't pamper us. The room was spacious and gorgeous. Our view was the Byward Market. The shower was spacious, had a strong flow, and never ran out of hot water. The hotel is beautifully appointed and wonderfully designed and built. Checking in and out was a breeze and it seemed like everyone knew who we were. The experience at the Chateau was great.
