The room was very clean and well kept. The staff h was friendly and courteous.
The amenities were getting pretty old. The hotel is in a very bad section of town and was not comforting.
The Refrigerator fit many water bottles? Um, it is difficult to write anything positive about this hotel.
Um, don't know where to begin. This hotel is in the middle of no where, next to the railroad. Non-smoking room had a deep, deep cigarette smell. Seemed like someone was smoking in there not too long ago. If it wasn't for me not being able to sleep earlier because of west coast time, you could hear and feel the trains coming and going. The walls are very thin, and you can here anything outside. There are also some people that come by bumping their music so loud, that the room vibrates. This also occurred during the wee hours. So if you are a light sleeper and you want to stay here, good luck. However, this is not the reason why I left. On the first night, I found a bug on the sheets. I wasn't sure if it was a bed bug, because it was the first time I saw that type of bug, so I killed it. While I was sleeping, I woke up because I felt itchy. However, I sometimes get itchy, so I didn't think it was bed bugs yet. After the next night, I woke up and once I was about to leave, I saw a smaller bug on the bed again, so I caught it, but this time when I smashed the bug, blood smeared on the sheets. So, I knew they were bed bugs, and I packed up my stuff, and went to the front desk. I told the manager that I wanted to get a refund for the remaining time there (I had booked for 8 nights). The front desk made it very difficult to receive a refund, and not until my sister yelled at the front desk with a customer waiting did he agree to the refund. He was trying to get us to check out and pay the full amount. So, I spent one day in DC trying to quarantine all my luggage. So if you really have to stay here, you have been warned.
La wifi gratuite, le petit déjeuner compris, 15min à pied du 1er metro, plutôt propre
A la réservation et dans le mail de confirmation, rien n'indiquait qu'on avait loué une chambre "fumeur" alors qu'en arrivant à l'hôtel, le réceptionniste m'a assuré que si... Notre chambre était donc : -puante de cigarette -pas encore nettoyée (lit défait, télé et lumières allumées) toutefois, nous avons gentiment demandé et la personne nous a donné une chambre non fumeur cette fois!
closeness to city center
noise level from railway tracks
Comfortable. Really nice place. Guy from the front desk really hepful (the one during the day), rest of the staff doesn't speak english so well so sometimes is hard to understand what they are saying. They don't speak spanish either... so weird thing fot the us!.
Breakfast: Old donuts - weird bread and bad coffee. Is far from the Metro, like 10-15 minutes walking. if u have a suitcase to pull over the road, u'll be in trouble, there is no sidewalk so u'll have to pull it through grass and dust... not great if it's rainy as my case. Once u get to the station is great. Places to eat are far away, but I always ordered to the room.... so it was fine.
It was an excellent location and I found it very convenient to walk to the Metro station rather than driving and trying to find parking. The facilities of the room were good.
Rather noisy and difficult to access when driving east on New York Avenue.
I was bitten by vermin all over and couln't sleep. So I had to move my room at 2:00 am.
Tv wasn't working in our room not a major but they kindly changed our room for us.
