Would probably not stay again
Posted Jun 20, 2015
I booked this hotel for my family to stay a couple nights while visiting Washington DC. We chose this hotel mostly because of good room rates, a pool for the kids and the fact the hotel had a shuttle to the nearest metro station.
The lobby is nice and the staff generally were good, but once you get out of the lobby area, there is a lot to be desired. They have signs around the building that they are remodelling (how long though?), but there is wallpaper missing, holes and other cosmetic things going on through the building. Our room was clean but some of the same issues with wallpaper starting to come off, and there was a picture missing, but holes still in the wall. Just didn't look like a well cared for hotel. Most outlets wouldn't hold plugs and a lamp was bent up like it had been dropped.
Rooms were clean, but the area leading to the pool was dirty and smelled moldy. Pool has strange hours from 6-10pm so the pool is closed outside that time.
Elevators were really small and it is hard to get luggage carts in and out of them.
The shuttle service is ok, We used it to get to the metro station but our metro was a little late getting back to the station and although I called to schedule the shuttle pickup, they didn't wait for us a couple minutes so we had to get a cab back to the hotel or wait another 50 minutes for the next shuttle. This was mostly my fault, but just be aware that they will probably not wait for you, so schedule your pickup accordingly.
