Only the location was good.

The location was the main advantage of this hotel. They did not even have towels (or cleaner for the equipment) in their fitness center. People are forced to leave the equipment covered in sweat.

part one of the family trip

We were looking to stay in the downtown area so this was a great spot. Pool is only open until 8:30 pm though, that part was a bummer and there were never towels up there. Staff was good a quick though when we called for tea and a pack n play for the baby.

Had an OK Stay and served it's purpose.

My favorite thing about this Hotel is it's location, everything was within walking distance yet it was a relatively calm location especially for a city. The room included quite a few good features and appliances so it's ready for basically whatever you may need, room service always performed as they should and the reception was kind. However the Hotel seemed to have a problem with the A/C for a whole week (it wouldn't cool) to which I called reception several times until it was finally fixed. The complimentary WiFi Internet was extremely bad, constantly lost connection and very poor speeds. My bath-tub drainage suddenly got clogged during the last day for no reason. Other than that, it was OK.

Too much cooking

Location, cleanliness, friendliness all very good. Room was dated as were appliances in kitchen. Main drawback was smell of food cooking throughout the building. Some of hotel is rented as apartments, so between that and people cooking in rooms, the odor was overpowering.

A Satisfatory Stay

The stay at Windsor Suites was OK-hot spectacular, but nor horrible either. The room was a nice size with a nice view overlooking the Parkway. The service was ordinary-no real greeting from the check-in staff, but that was fine. The bathroom showers took some time to figure out-there were two things that had to be done to get hot water into the shower. Asia on the Parkway is a good restaurant -it was filling, if a little overcooked. and Overall, it was a good experience. Not spectacular, but it was definitely satisfactory.

Good location and price

We enjoyed the location very much and the hotel staff were extremely nice and helpful. The suite was enormous - more than we needed, really - and the "living room" area especially was strangely furnished/arranged. Apparently this building does long-term rentals, and one could imagine this as a simple apartment for a bachelor. It was nice not to feel cramped, and the bathroom and bedroom were comfortable.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a GREAT brunch place a short distance away called Sabrina's and Spencer's Too. An easy walk from the hotel across Logan Circle and up behind the Free Library. Be prepared to wait, it's very popular - but the wait is worth it.
