There was an open door on the 4th floor that wouldn't close and you could see a bunch of old mini-fridges. The service was excellent. There were some minor issues I had about full disclosure. For example, I purchased my hotel room with breakfast included. I was told to order "whatever off the menu." Then was told later when the bill came that it was a $25 per person limit. It seems sllightly disorganized.

The location was perfect with in walking distance to everything I needed to get to. The thing I found odd was that I could get ice anywhere in the hotel.

This is an excellent hotel. We were in town for business and loved our stay. The only issue is that the resort fee hold is more than listed. But, it was worth it.

Billed separately by the hotel after booking through Travelocity. They claimed to have refunded the extra charges, but they haven't fallen off my credit card yet. Annoying.

Great location but shows signs of wear

Pros: See above
Cons: See above
Location: Great location for a hotel. Check out Second Story Books, Zorba's Cafe for a great meal, Rock Creek Park for a good run, etc.
I stayed at this hotel yrs ago. It was an excellent hotel then. Recently, I came back with kids in tow. The staff was very nice and professional in welcoming us. The room was tidy, and quiet during night hours. The negatives (which has nothing to do with staff) - the hotel shows significant wear. (1) The shower head emitted high-pitched sound when on; it goes for the other rooms next to us because I hear the same high-pitch noise somewhere else. (2) The room carpet feels uncomfortably grimy; it probably needs a thorough steam cleaning. (3) An alarm went off on Sunday at 9 a.m. and stopped after 5 minutes, then no other announcements were made. Obviously, it was false because I would otherwise be writing a different review. (4) Two of our hotel key cards stopped working although they were kept by two different people in different wallets. Explanation from staff was that it may have been demagnetized in our wallets. Okay, I've been to hundreds of hotels and I've never had that happen. It may have been an IT issue, but of course the staff wouldn't give that reason. (5) Be aware too that the hotel charges $30 for amenities fee on top of your hotel charges. I was told that the $30 fee is for the use of free wifi and for the wine cocktail hours in the late afternoon. I was not given the option to opt-out of those "amenities" so I think you have to specifically ask when you check in. (6) Lastly, if you have small children, this hotel offers no step stool for kids to reach the sink.
