Our room was directly next to Guapo restaurant which played extremely loud music until 11:20 pm. We endured it for 2 hours before asking the front desk staff to have it turned down. They told that us the restaurant often plays it loudly. The hotel sent a person to ask for the volume to be turned down. Their request was ignored. I asked for a room change but was told they didn’t have any rooms for 4 people. Music was playing again in the morning when we checked out at 9:00 am. I would not stay in this facility again. Our room was #130.

The hotel was nice and the staff went above and beyond. It was raining and windy when we checked in but there was no parking spot we could get into so the desk agent went out to move her vehicle so we could park near the entrance. The rooms were small and had minor cleanliness issues but otherwise the stay was quite pleasant.

The room card worked only with great difficulty. Since it was a Sunday, no new battery was put in the door or any other solution given. It took a long time to get warm water. The room was clean and had adequate facilities, including a safe that would not stay shut and impeded the path. Have a free breakfast. Fine if you need to save money for a short stay.

Hotel in good location

Pros: location
Cons: desk staff need to know more--could not tell me what I would be billed (base price). Fix the fitness center equipment.
Location: grocery store, coffee shops, small restaurants nearby. Great location for going to NIH or Walter Reed Medical Center.
great location for my meeting. Nice area in terms of walking around outside. Hotel was adequate in terms of room (it was quiet etc). Front desk staff seemed distracted. One was talking on the phone while trying to check me in. When I wanted to check out, computer system was down and they could not tell me even how much they were going to charge me for my room and whether it matched the travelocity price. My credit card had been billed extra the previous day in case there were incidentals and they could not say if that charge would be removed. Fitness center had 2 treadmills, both of which were broken. Hotel has great feature of free parking but they failed to say on website that they have very few spaces and not everyone will necessarily be able to park. Food at breakfast was lacking in things that were not highly processed (e.g., lack of fresh fruit choices except apples). Overall, I could live with the inconveniences for 1 night given the good location and the fact that I got one of the few parking spaces.
