Mouse trap

f I could rate this hotel less than a one star, I would. Upon arrival in my first room, I found a mouse trap with something in it. Serious health code violation, not to mention extremely dangerous with a child in my room. The front desk showed zero concern and the bell staff had no urgency to help relocate us. The situation was handled in an unprofessional manner. I called downstairs several times only to be transferred to no one, placed on hold on multiple occasions and then disconnected. Management never returned my phone calls and would only address the issue three days later when I refused to leave the front desk until someone finally spoke to me. Separately, my second room had a sink and a bath tub that remained backed up. Nothing in the room had been properly cleaned to a point that I would feel comfortable using, so I cleaned it myself. Public restrooms were filthy, duck taped and soap dispensers were empty. This hotel is disgusting and the customer service is even worse.

Beautiful location. Terrible experience

First room had a mouse. To "make it right" they moved us to a smaller room at the end of a long dark hallway. Parking garage was filthy. At 45.00 a night to self park you'd think they would at least empty the garbage but the same rotting food was there for multiple days. One bright point was a front desk attendant Gerard noticed we had received no compensation for our hassle and provided concierge lounge passes for out last day.

A Murphy bed?

Pros: The staff was very pleasant.
The wing of the room that I stayed in is going to be converted into condos, so it's clear why it was neglected. The decor was extremely dated, musty, and the bed was a Murphy bed (pulls down from a wall mount). I didn't check in until 1 am, so I was too tired to make a fuss. I'm a Marriott club member and more than a little surprised that I was given a room that harkens to the 1920s. My colleagues stayed in the modern part of the hotel and thought that it was adequate.

Pros: The lobby.
Cons: More staffing for the restaurant, Stone's Throw.
Location: Location was great.
The hotel was too big for us. Also, we were supposed to have breakfast as part of our stay, but we stood in line for about 20 minutes and gave up! We were not a "Stone's Throw" from the line.

DC Weekend

Pros: Very well appointed and easy to get to.
Cons: The parking was outrageous. In all my life I have never paid that much to park.
Location: Easy to get to restaurants, places like the zoo, National Catherdral.
Loved the location of the hotel which was very close to our granddaughter. Thought the grounds of the hotel were beautiful with all the flowers in bloom. Had chance to visit some of the iconic places in DC.

Not bad but could be better

Pros: We got an excellent price on the hotel and flight through Travelocity. It is a short bus ride to the National Zoo. The refrigerator was nice to have.
Cons: The upholstered chair was stained and kind of gross.
Location: The hotel is on the L1 and L2 bus line and the Metro red line. There is a good variety of restaurants. The zoo is uphill form the hotel.
This was our second stay at this hotel. We like it because it is close to the Metro and the National Zoo. There are several restaurants nearby as well as a Dunkin's and a CVS. The restaurants in the hotel are very pricey. It is a huge hotel so be prepared for a long walk to your room. It is also on a hill so if you are carrying bags up from the Metro you need to be reasonably fit. The only free Wi-Fi is in the lobby and it is a little slow. The shower has 2 soap dishes. The higher one is just the right height to hit a kid in the head. He did that twice. The staff were helpful and polite. The double beds are small for 2 people. Queen would be better.
