Needed a Thursday night stay in the D.C. area and with a $95 AAA rate this property met the criteria. My usual locations priced significantly higher than that. Took Red Line Metro to the NoMa-Gallaudet station and the hotel is two long blocks up from there. You'll easily see it from the train station platform. The large building on the right is ATF. Hotel did honor my profile for "high floor, away from elevator". I was at the end of the 12th floor. The area appears in the midst of redevelopment with some demolition across the street from my room, but newer buildings in the area, including a Hilton Garden Inn and a Courtyard by Marriott. Food options appeared pretty limited from a look at Google maps at 9pm: McDonalds, Wendys, or Five Guys. I saw a Pot Belly deli but it closes at 7pm weeknights and even earlier on weekends. I ended up at the Wendys which has a security guard on duty inside the entry door. View from my room: You do get used to sirens in this area (reminded me a lot of my stay at Hyatt Magnificent Mile). Was only awakened once during the night, though, so maybe they quiet things down after midnight. This is the second Hyatt Place I've been to this month with the new sofas-- much nicer than what they had before.
