Who says Washington, DC has no cultural life, right? Okay, sorry. I'm sure I'll hear about that. But here's the thing. I certainly don't know every hotel in DC. (I go to DC every few weeks but always stay at the same place.) But I hadn't heard of the Roger Smith. So I looked it up and as near as I can tell it doesn't exist anymore. But there's another Roger Smith hotel in New York. And they're taking credit for the connection.

So I assume there was one in each city and the DC location folded or was sold? Who knows the answer to this mystery?
