Decent but not special

Our whole experience at this hotel was just OK as my ratings show. The staff was cordial but ambivalant. The shower leaked and flooded the bathroom floor. They sent extra towels and that was it. Overall the stay was satisfactory but we were just there on business and not vacation.

DC Trip!

The hotel is very good overall. The one problem is their showers. Although I really liked the top-down shower head, the bathroom floor was soaked overtime I used it. It's hot to be a pain for the cleaning crew.

staff was great

This hotel is very nice we liked it. The staff was friendly. Parking was ok it is public can cost if you take your car out several times during the day. Plan well. Incidentials are $25. Call ahead for clarification. It is a costly area; but very nice. Will stay again. rooms are very nice.

Disappointed

When I first got to the room it had a musty smell that never left. Also there were only 1 set of towels. Other then that things were good. Until the next day, when I was surprised that after 2pm returning to my room, it still hasn't been cleaned or towels replenished. They knocked on the door around 3pm to clean up. At that point I was relaxing with my wife. I asked if they could come back around 5 once we left for dinner. They said yes, however when I got back around 8 the room still was the same mess , no new towels , sheets not made and trash not taken out. For the name and price I expected a little more then that. I would not use them again.

Birthday Weekend

The room was exceptional! We loved the large shower and dual shower heads. The bed was extremely comfortable and we're considering buying the comforter from their supplier. Parking is tough, you have to park in the garage up the street, but there is a loading/unloading zone directly in front of the hotel.

Great overnight stay

The staff, check-in and valet parking was seamless. The room was well appointed, the bathroom nicely decorated however, the toilet was too low to the floor for tall people or someone who needs bars for support. The complimentary robe was a nice touch although one for each of us would have been even nicer.

Convenience met luxury!

We stayed here in order to see a local band play at the nearby Tanger Outlet opening. Was a great place to stay and we will be back!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Don't drive your self to the Tanger Outlets. Free shuttles are offered and you can save a lot by leaving your car in the parking garage and taking that free service!
