Great place!

The room was huge - it was basically like a small apartment. Very comfortable bed, too. See full review

Unpleasant Experience

This hotel seemed somewhat neglected. We could not close the bathroom door, as it seem to have been put on backwards. The entire room appeared less than clean (including kitchenette) & I would not go back, nor would I recommend it. The staff at check-in were unpleasant.

Location bad, no room service and few restaurants nearby...

The price is right, but location location location, ugh! There is no restaurant in the hotel and there's only one close to the hotel, others are a good walk away (on the plus side, you can order delivery and then store leftovers in the fridge, there's a kitchen with stove, fridge, and microwave), and even worse, getting to DC locations is tough, taxi or driving is more convenient...but a times the wait for a taxi was pretty long. I will not be using the Venetian Suites again.

Pictures way better than the real thing.

When you first arrive this place looks old and moldy. The rooms arent much better. The rooms are so big that the AC does not really reach you. The quality of the TV in my room was horrible. I couldn't watch anything really. The bed was lumpy and the whole place smelled a little dank. I would not stay here again even though the staff was great.

Get the shuttle to the metro, this is not the are you want to be walking in at night. There are no street lights over much of the path.

Wow... Kind of scary.

I read a few reviews... it said the place was nice and safe... They were right about nice... not about safe. Within 10 minutes of arriving, someone had gotten robbed. Cops all over the place. Parking was scarce, I guess they didn't expect people because they didn't really clear their parking of all the snow. The room was very nice though for the low low price.

Average but adequate

Staff was courteous. This is an old apartment building converted to a hotel so the rooms have efficiencies. Nice concept, but odd layouts and ancient elevator system. Tiny cars so only one luggage cart and one person at a time. The maid staff also uses the same 2 elevators, so one cart and one maid at a time. Don't stay above the 4th floor in this 10 story building because it will take you forever to get to your room and get to the lobby to leave or check out. No ice machines in the building and only 3 vending machines in the lobby. Yes, you have to take the elevator again from 10 to the first floor just to get a bottle of water. Plan accordingly!! Pool was nice but the lounge chair cushions are old and faded and they do not provide additional or larger size towels. Parking is limited and if coming back to the hotel late it doesn't feel safe to park around the side, it's very dark on the walk around to the front.

Request to stay on the 4th floor or lower so you can use the back entrance up the hill or use the stairs to maneuver in & out of the hotel more quickly.
