Nice Website...Shabby Hotel

The website looks great for this hotel...but reality is very different. The workout room had broken equipment. Every day the staff said it would be fixed THAT day. Three day stay...machines broken the entire time. The rooms are small and dingy. Big flat screens with FIVE channels. Old beds with old pillows. The staff are unaware of the surrounding location. You can't even get a cup of hot water to make yourself some tea. I wish we had paid more for a nicer place. I would never EVER stay here again.

really worth it!

I was only there for two nights, but the hotel is very clean great location and easy to transit via subway. I found that the room does get hot if you don't leave on the AC. But other than that. The room was fantastic. I will stay there again within the coming weeks. Great price for a nice location.

Good Value

Overall a great stay - clean, friendly staff, nice rooms. On the border of not-so-great neighborhoods, so recommend not lots of walking at night. Nearest Metro stop is .5 miles away so plan on walking a lot or taking cabs. Still overall a good value for the package I got!

Good Value

Our trip included a free daily American buffet breakfast. When we arrived, we were told the hotel was not full enough and they would not be serving the hot buffet but a Continental breakfast instead. This consisted of bagels, muffins, cereal, yogurt etc. Very disappointed. This should have been communicated when our trip was booked. Other than that, everything was fine.

disapointing

Arrived the day after Thanksgiving for one night. We found out the suttle service is very limited to certain spots in the morning and after 12:00 noon it only goes to eating establishments....not good! Our room was hot even after the air was put on, one of the shades was broken....ice machines are located in the basement, not on every floor....etc. What was also disapointing was the description of "renovated" and the 3 star rating.........clearly it is not 3 star.

Time-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

Plan on taking the "Metro" and walk to a stop. Do not believe, "oh there is parking on the streets". The parking in D.C. is HORRABLE!

Retro One of a Kind

We enjoyed staying at this hotel. The 24 hr gym was nice. The breakfast buffet was alright. It was very basic and not what I was expecting from the description on the hotel's website. If it is not included in your hotel package, it it definitely not worth $14 a pop! The rooms were clean and fine. The first room they put us in was extremely warm and we stayed in it one night with no sleep. It also had a shower tub that didn't drain which was gross, standing in your own dirtiness. The second call to the front desk, they were happy to accommodate us to a cooler room with a draining tub. The main cons of this hotel is that it is on a busy street which makes it really loud, and hard to sleep in with all the honking etc. Another con is that parking is $30/day! They don't mention parking on their website probably because it is where they get you. It's impossible to find parking outside the hotel if you have a car, so plan on forking out an extra $210 just for storing your car. Overall, this was a great place to sleep, clean up and eat, especially with a smaller budget. It was a quick drive into downtown but probably not the best place to stay if you don't have a car, because you don't want to make that walk.

Good deal in the Nation's capital

Older hotel that has been zhuzhed up with attractive & trendy lobby/restaurant and decorative touches in the rooms. Staff was friendly and helpful. Bed was super comfortable. Wify connection was slow but reliable. Not close to main business areas, but only a couple blocks walk to the Metro so no car needed. And the view of the Capitol from my room was breathtaking.
