What could have been better? 1. Fewer cockroaches. They're practically part of the support staff. 2. Update facilities for the first time since the Kennedy assassination 3. Lower the price if you're not going to do 1 and 2 from above
Mentioned that there’s daily Valet fee
Location was decent for what we were doing.
My $500 iwatch was stollen from the room.
Everything was great except the unexpected parking fee
Great location, very friendly staff
There was a $25/per night parking charge that we didn't know about until check in :( That charge brought the price up a lot closer to some of the nicer hotels I had decided not to stay in to save money.
The location was great. Within walking distance of the Capitol. The staff were efficient and courteous.
The facilities were being remodeled. They definitely need it. My thought as I was walking to my room was, "what a dump." Also, not the hotel's fault, but there was a loud drinking party in the room next to mine that went on until after midnight. The walls are very thin. I should have called the front desk but didn't. Sigh.
The location and the comfort of the hotel was good.
I wish I had known the hotel was doing renovations. While this didn't really have any bearing, it did have some impact. The most upsetting is the charge for parking. If I had known I had to pay $25+ each night for valet parking (only option), I would never have booked the hotel. I didn't have that much budgeted, and it greatly impacted me.
Noisy through the night
Location is very convenient.
Hotel was average by all accounts. Negatives were two factors. The first was the inflated price for the weekend due to the F1 championship. This was unfortunate but nothing unusual. The real complaint was the noise levels through the night. Sounded like I was at a block party until 4am with no effort by the staff to speak with the noisy guests.
Staff was really nice. It's in a great location.
Had to switch rooms upon arrival do to blood stains on one bed and questionable white crusty spots on the other. Found massive cockroach on the floors when we got back from being out all day in the new room. both me and the misses were covered in bites upon waking up. Almost certain it was of the bed varietal.
Just how close I was to the capital and ut
The location is perfect.
The hotel is overpriced. You are REQUIRED to use the valet parking at $14 a night. Between the time the valet took our car and we kicked it up a few hours later, a large scratch was left in one our car doors. The rooms don't have refrigerators and are quite small for the nightly cost.
Worked better than I thought that breakfast was in a room across the parking lot from the lobby. I liked being just a few steps from the Capitol building since I hadn't been inside as an adult. The location was close enough to downtown to walk (5 mins to 6th Street), but quite a bit further to go to the more adult area of 2nd Street. Staff was friendly and after my visit quickly corrected a mistake in my billing. Worked great that I had pre-paid via Kayak and had no problems getting my room immediately. Breakfast was included (hard to find) but be aware the only protein was hardboiled eggs and there was very little fruit. At least there were (make your own) waffles!
The construction noise across the street was not very conducive to sleeping late on the weekend. There was a huge gap under the door where light came in and A/C went out - like a motel instead of a hotel. The parking was mandatory valet @ 12.99/day and I don't remember that being listed online (at Kayak). Of course there wasn't another close place to park so I guess it was better than $20/night like some places downtown. This place got very crowded on Labor Day weekend, so check in and check out were kind of crazy.
Nice beds and pillows
Breakfast was limited
central position, helpful staff
pay to park, should have been added online when booking no restaurant. fair breakfast
I needed to leave early as I was concerned for my saftey. It appeared the mainteance man was following me to my room. I did not go directly to my room as he was entering and exiting other rooms near mine and when I went down the hall he was right behind me. Maybe this was coincedential but it gave me serious concern.
I only stayed l night instead of 4 nights as it was terrible. I liked the location very much.
The acoustics are so terrible that one cannot sleep due to the noise. You can literally hear someone urinating, talking loudly,etc.
