inexpensive but not worth the cost due to very loud road noise from White Hearst - very thin walls & no insulated glass on windows
Greeted by friendly staff - Miguel at the front desk was very helpful when I needed assistance at the Business Center. Check in was a breeze. The suite was clean, comfortable and newly renovated. The kitchenette came equipped with everything we needed to cook.
Good location and friendly staff. Room size was nice and the kitchen area was more than adequate for our needs.
Nice neighbourhood, although seen on rainy days (i.e., experience less than optimal). Hotel fine otherwise.
Will go back! Love the separate bedroom and it was quiet although there is a highway right next to it. Short walking to restaurants and shops and of course the Harbour!
The room was clean and staff was kind. The kitchen in the room was old style.
Pro: Comfy room and friendly staff. Con: I could not find/connect to the wifi.
The suite was perfect - very comfortable, huge bedroom and living room area. I was blown away with the size of the room for a city hotel. Having a kitchen made our stay more comfortable. I chose this hotel because I was traveling with my mother and 10 year old nephew. The staff were very accommodating and the location was ideal for our needs.
So after a long eventful day where my family (me, my wife and my mother) had to tolerate heavy traffic - be it rush at the museums, parking trouble, and long lines at restaurants for dinner and giving up and ordering take out (thinking we will reach out hotel soon and enjoy the 'warm' food, we were faced with more waiting to find parking around the hotel (by the way when I called the hotel they told me the hotel parking was full now and because we are so late (~ 8 pm) we probably won't find hotel or street parking either!!!) So yea we circled the area 5-6 times because of one-way streets and car traffic and pedestrian walking (who by the way just walk wherever they want regardless of traffic signals!) and finally decided to park in a garage which was open that night a street parallel and a block away from the hotel and lugged all our belongings to the hotel from the garage BECAUSE the hotel has one spot for 15 minutes which was taken up the 5-6 times we went around so finally we just decided to park and walk all our things!!! So finally we reached the hotel and unfortunately, we reached during the middle of a conversation between a senior citizen couple who wanted to extend their stay for 2 more days and turns out it was a very 'repetitive' dialogue between them and we are waiting there tired and starving at 9:30pm at night waiting to be checked in... anyway, our turn came finally and the checkin process took 2 minutes (luckily) which gave us a basement room! (didn't know that from before) and well we lugged our belongings to the lower level and walked all the way across the hall to reach our room... And well the room was really nice at first look - we got the 1 bedroom suite - living room, kitchen, 1 bathroom, 1 bedroom and sofabed. It was nice to see lots of windows in the living room area (but the view was grass, wheels of cars going by and feet of passersby!! yes not appealing at all and thats what you get from a basement floor room. We quickly dumped everything in there and sat at the kitchen table (the kitchen was nice furnished with utensils, coffee machine with coffee amenities, toaster, microwave, dish washer) until we sat down to eat our 'cold' dinner from the take out (from a nice restaurant by the way) and when I was done eating, I put my hands on the table to take support to get up and lo and behold the glass of the table on my side pushed down and opposite side lifted up and almost splattered all the food on my face and hit me BUT....BUT my wife and mom held the table down luckily and none of this happened! So yes the glass part of the table wasn't attached to the table!!! (our entire evening was jinxed for some apparent reason...) Then I head to the bathroom and well the door wouldn't lock from the inside. Yes I was with my family so it isn't a big issue...but still I do expect the bathroom or any door if it has a lock on the inside - TO LOCK... Since it was late and I wanted to relax, my wife and I thought lets watch a little bit of TV in the bedroom but the TV wouldn't switch on either....the remote worked but not the TV....TV as a showpiece?? maybe... luckily next morning the TV in the living room was working... To summarize... It is a 'decent' hotel,room to stay in for a cheap price for 1 day....but if you are expecting an excellent room with excellent amenities this is not the place for you...
This is an older property that's a little rough around the edges, but everything was clean, working, and comfortable. Great bed and linens. Wifi worked great. Bathroom amenities were nice. I didn't use the kitchen, but it seemed to be in working order. Friendly staff.
Picked this place to have somewhere to retreat to after celebrating St. Patty's day a little early. Honestly, the hotel is between Foggy Bottom Metro Station and Georgetown down one of the streets. Its a quiet area at night, you can see the water before going into the hotel and the receptionist was extremely friendly. The room was a nice studio suite with a king size bed and walking distance to all the shops and bars/restaurants in Georgetown.
Nice sized room, comfortable bed. Hallways somewhat dingy, and located right next to highway overpass so moderate traffic noise. Staff pleasant and helpful, overall reasonable value for money.
We got a studio with king bed in the harbor building. It was spacious with two big closets, a dinning area, a kitchen, and lots of windows. Breakfast was good. It has milk and four different juice, fruit salad, bacon egg biscuit, hard eggs, waffle, muffin, danish, toast, etc. It has free wifi, TV, iron, and hair dryer. Tons of restaurants and shops nearby. Two blocks away from circulator bus that takes you to the National Mall area for a dollar. Only complaint is the noisy highway. So if you book early enough and get a room not facing the highway, you are good.
hotel is well located but small things add up...remote for tv did not work, air conditioning was insufficient, keys to room were misset twice for a one day instead of a two day stay and got stcuk oin parking gararge and had to walk around building to get in...after asking front desk to check keys they reset keys only to have them not work in room and had to get new keys again, ..this could be a great hotel but needs to step up a bit
While this is a very cute place in the heart of Georgetown it is not really suggested for anyone who wants to do more than get a good nights sleep. The mini suites are cute and clean however it is not a full service hotel. There is nowhere to eat in the hotel except for continental breakfast in the lobby. There are not even snacks. There is no pool or anything to do. It is very quiet. All in all it was fine for a night but not vacation or for a true hotel experience.
This hotel provides excellent value for the Georgtown location. The rooms include kitchen facilities and cooking implements. The rooms are spacious on the order of a studio apartment. The breakfast each morning is included in the room rate and is substantial. The hotel staff aren't real friendly and outgoing, but better customer service training could rectify that situation. All in all, I'd stay here again.
The front desk are very friendly ( Paul ) & very helpful .
Our room was wonderful. Large room, loved the kitchen and the view was pretty good. Staff was very helpful. With in walking distance of Metra. Close to Georgetown shops and resturants.
Initial room reservation had us in a closet. Room was very small. Staff moved us to a different room which was much nicer, but decor is from the 1940's/1950's (literally LOOKED that old and dingy). Room was extremely clean, but the facility we stayed at was in a dangerous location (end of the block and too far from the main strip and main hotel). Security utilized to walk us to/from main building to secondary building after hours. Neighborhood changes from good to bad quite literally from one building to the next. Visited D.C. area and location was excellent. Good local dining experiences and transportation to D.C. "mall" area was right outside the door. Staff was, for the most part, very kind and helpful. Would stay again if the price was right. Overall, not a horrible place to stay on a budget considering the location.
1-Br. Suite resembled a cozy city apartment, with lots of closet space, 2 flat screen TVs, full kitchen with dishwasher & appliances. YOu could never get this space for the money in NYC. Toiletries from Bath 'n Body Works. The bed was really, really comfortable with super soft linens! Low-key, small hotel, yet so close to the shops of M St., the Potomac River/Washington Harbor area, and even the Kennedy Center, to which I walked with my 4-year-old. Parking conveniently in lower level of bldg. Breakfast was free and good - bagels, Yoplait yogurt, fresh fruit, coffee, juice, granola bars, cereal. The other guests I observed were families and other tourist types. Only complaint was faint cigarette smell in hallways despite No Smoking signs on room doors. Overall though, for the price (my 1-Br suite was $175) this place was perfect...if you need luxe, just walk 1/2 block up the street and pay $500+ p/night at the Four Seasons!
