This will be a mixed review The hotel two queen beds and room was very large and liked having the small kitchen type area With a couch, chair and end tables and coffee table, with the two queens was very nice

The bathroom didn’t have a door separating the preparation room from the rest of the bedroom area, this would have made it easier to get dressed without disturbing others sleeping In the morning, got up to use the work out area and there were only two towels and the workout area needed a thorough wipe down There were sweat marks on the equipment I went and informed front desk twice that towels were needed and the next day they still weren’t there; and the women working out said they had to go to the front desk to get towels and the old towels from yesterday were still there I again informed the front desk of the missing towels I left that day so I don’t know if the area was every wiped down or towels finally delivered As for the breakfast, they definitely watered it down too much Both days the oatmeal was more like soup I tried one day but just couldn’t do it the second day There was just too much water and using plastic spoons, it was hopeless As for the eggs, they were tasteless and again I think they “watered” down these too with something that was just too much I didn’t try the meat, but it looked fine And they had waffles which ran out of strawberry flavored mix and regular constantly The cereals were very boring, no sugar cereals, only the cheapest ones supplied They did have muffins, toast and bagels available and juice and milk Someone spilled their food on the floor and I mentioned to front desk, they picked it up but did not clean the floor The next day a liquid was on the floor and that also was not cleaned up Not pleased with the selection or the hotel in general and have stayed at many Hampton Inns A little more care in cleaning would be better

Spencer Berry

When I reserved to stay here, I really had low expectations due to the location near Loop I495 The hotel far exceeded my expectations and we had a great stay Parking was kind of congested, but we found spot close enough to the entrance

Our room was very nice and spacious The only knock of the room was the location of the TV, which faced a wall and the bathroom areahowever, it swiveled so that wasn’t a deal breaker The best surprise was the breakfast buffet 😋 We were treated to cheesy eggs, sausage and self serve Waffles (regular and blue berry) our first morning, and the next day was eggs, link sausage, fried potatoes and self serve Waffles (regular and chocolate) There was also plenty of coffee, juices, and other items available They also had a very large dining area which made finding a table and comfortable seating very easyThe location was perfect for access to the highways and very close to the subway stations and surrounding restaurants It was also only minutes away from the airport, so it made arriving to our departing flight very easy We would definitely stay here again when we travel to the DC/Virginia/Maryland area for a future visit

Steve Van Dyke

This is a mixed reviewStaff can make and break hotels Everyone I interacted with was polite and wanted to make things better

I appreciate that and I complement the staff for trying every time I brought concerns to them I saw several times the front desk staff dealing with situations with guests that could have spiraled out of control, but were handled with good grace and attitudeWith that, we had room maintenance issues First night we had a grinding noise from the a/c that caused a sleepless night We reported this and it was looked at, but not resolved We reported it again, and the a/c was replaced We also had water backup issues in both the tub and the sink, which we reported, but was not resolved I’ve never in almost 20 years had to report maintenance issues every day of my stayOtherwise, the amenities and location were great We enjoyed the outdoor pool, and the breakfast area was busy but well stocked and good- Edit -The general manager reply below indicated there was a private communication to me, and called me by the incorrect name No one from Hilton or the general manager to this point have reached out to me, and I have not been offered any compensation- Edit #2 -Hilton indicated that the GM had reached out to me and that has not happened to date I have left 2 voicemails to the general manager with no callback- Edit #3 -GM finally reached out and offered a credit Still haven’t seen this on my statement yet- Edit #4 -Finally received a credit on my account Hilton also reached out to me as well for the amount of time that it took me to resolve this

Located in strategic area Comfortable bunk bed, clean bathroom, cozy rooftop, free to use kitchen and fridge Some books and board games available in lounge room

Pancakes for breakfast, tea coffee all day Friendly staff Worth the priceSatisfying hostel experience If you’re lucky like me, you’ll end up having the room for yourself

This is probably one of the best hostels I’ve stayed at in DC The staff are super nice and welcoming, always making sure your visit and stay is enjoyable and going out of their way to make you feel welcomed All the ladies working here are angels

I was scheduled to arrive late at night, and Jessica waited for me and checked me in when I arrived at night The hostel is in a very nice neighborhood (Capitol Hill) Although it’s not close to the tourist sites, the Metro is 2 blocks away, you’re right by a grocery store (Trader Joes), and surrounded by great bars and restaurants The wifi worked on all the floors (no spotty signal, it was strong on all 3 floors!) and rooms were super cool (a respite from the scorching DC heat) The rooftop patio was nice, and the outdoor patio Delicious chocolate chip pancakes were served every morning, with coffee TV had majority of the streaming services on it to keep you occupied, lounge on the 3rd floor had books and 2 computers The only complaint I have is that the bathrooms are kinda in a very awkward spot (located smack dab in the living room) Anyone can see and hear you walk to and from the bathroom (and what you do inside), and when you walk out, the whole living room can see The men’s showers are also next to the living room/kitchen, and anyone walking by the kitchen can see everything going on in the showers, making it slightly uncomfortable Rooms were a bit cramped and small But overall, the hostel was very clean and modern

Ryan Young

Honest review If you value security find another hostelThere was definitely some positives The staff were amazing, and the beds were fairly comfy

That’s about where the positives ended unfortunatly for meI was unable to feel secure inside the hostel The outer front doors stay unlocked the whole time, and the front doors, while locked have a hole in the middle for sliding documents through, that could fit a small arm and someone could easily just open the door from inside The rooms themselves have zero locks on them (completely unacceptable in my opinion) They do have lockers, but they are all on the second floor (dorms on all 3 floor) and definitely not big enough to fit a larger backpack, and not enough for every guest, so there is a chance you won’t get a locker and have to leave your stuff in an unlocked roomThe rooms were too small, with barely any room between the beds You will feel like a sardine can in the rooms, and I have zero idea how it passed fire code inspectionThe men’s shower area has no lock on the door and it’s just off of the kitchen I’d hate someone to be eating and get an eyeful they don’t want to see while eating When I was there only one overhead light in the bathroom was working, the other was flickering, generally meaning electrical problems, and apparently it had been like this for a few days There is rust all around the base of the bathroom light fixtures, meaning they aren’t meant to be used in a moisture rich environmentAll in all, would NEVER stay here again, or reccomend to anyone unless you are in a real pinch Even then sleep with all your important stuff basically attached to you so you can feel secureUnacceptable for the price I paid for the hostel I did not feel safe or overly comfortableBut as I said, with all that, the staff truly are wonderful! They are super helpful and accommodating and great fun to hang around

Russell Biller

Hotel accommodations were wonderful However the family above us kept letting their children jump off the bed onto the floor and had TV up so loud we could hear it Called front desk 3 times and even though “security” was sent up the disturbance continued

When asked to be moved to another room we were told that was not an option Hotel staff could clearly have cared less, but the room itself was nice I would know, I was up literally all night and got to look at it in great detail

Raquel Seymone

Well appointed suites great for short term stays Conveniently located in Ritchie Station so it’s surrounded by grocery stores, restaurants, and retailSufficient on site parking with roaming security

Housekeeping is only available every 4th night I extended my stay by one additional night for a total of 5 nights but was told I couldn’t get housekeeping because my original stay wasn’t 4 nights Very Disappointed in how that was handled, but overall the staff I encountered at check in and throughout the stay was kind and professional

Mic Warren

Some of the people were great but some just don’t seem to care, we told them many times while we were there that our room smelled of smoke and one of the nice people brought us an air freshener It helped a little bit but we found that the smell came back over and over again, we found that the smell was embedded in all the fabric of the room and the vents were filled with tar (dripped out when wet), they didn’t do anything or switch our room so we moved to a different hotel completely

Me and family booked a night here from out of state Family of 4 with the king suite and pull out couch First off the pool doesn’t exist so don’t pack bathing suits nor believe the pictures

We were told it had been out of use for 6 years In our room on the south tower side we had no air and not to mention we had two toddlers with us So it wasn’t pleasant nor did I sleep good Parking is ridiculous being $42 a night but I guess your car stays safe right…? The breakfast that we paid for with our reservation was okay not the best breakfast I’ve had and it kind of bothered my family because waiters tried serving us when we didn’t want to be served and bothered us while eating wanting a tip…when our food was paid for…and it’s a buffet The pull out couch for my oldest toddler was mediocre outdated kinda feeling I will have to say it was clean more than other hotels I’ve been to so I give it that and it was close to a lot of attractions That’s about it!

Sharion Flood

My daughter was graduating from college in the area so I booked a room here Upon booking the room, I asked was there a pool and was told yes there is an indoor pool On the website, it states there’s a microwave and refrigerator in the room

Upon arrival, there was only a refrigerator but no microwave My granddaughter wanted to go to the pool so after her, my niece and nephew got dressed, we called the front desk to inquire about the location of the pool and was told that there hadn’t been a pool in the past 5 years I had an event to attend with my daughter so I made a call to the hotel while I was out to ask about the microwave that was suppose to be in the room and was told they would bring me one Upon returning to the room (picture provided) this is what I was provided It looks as if they pulled it out of an employee lounge or something with dents all over it The 2nd night the cable went out and did not come back on (pictures provided) I called the front desk and was told that they had called for repair For taxes and fees, I was charged the same amount as another night of stay ($466 for 2 nights) (pictures of room provided)I had family in another room, which they did not have any air conditioning The hotel did have it repaired which worked for a few hours then went back out, however they did have cable the entire stayNot 1 time did I receive an apology for any of the inconveniences from this hotel staff I attempted one more time to address all of the inconveniences upon check out At that time they offered to comp my parking which I didn’t have a car there, so I asked that they comp my family with the room that had no air conditioning They did do that for themThe staff acted as if all issues happen on a regular basis as they are quick to respond without checking any of it outI would never stay at another Double Tree anything I do not recommend this hotel under any circumstances

Cheryl Denise

The service at this hotel was great and the staff was really friendly The rooms though

they really need to be updated Our bathroom mirror was broken all along the edges – which is a hazard – and the “King” bed in our suite was definitely a Queen Our shower didn’t drain properly, and since there is no daily housekeeping, that meant we needed to clean our own tub Good thing I had my Clorox wipesbut I didn’t pay the nightly fees to clean my own tub in a hotel suite Yes, maybe I could’ve switched rooms but who wants to do that after dragging your luggage to your room and unpacking? The A/C was questionable – you had to turn it down to the mid 60s to get the air up-to-par Note: this is coming from someone who typically likes the room in the 70sIf you don’t care about any of the above and you need a hotel in a great location, then by all meansknock yourself out

The staff at this hotel deserves an award! Every person I met was so helpful and friendly My room was very clean, the check-in process was seamless, and storing/picking up my luggage after checkout took less than one minute each way I was staying there for work and not focused on my hotel stay, but the incredible staff really made me stop and appreciate how nice it was

I would highly recommend choosing this hotel over others in the same price range if you’re planning a trip to National Harbor Thank you for a lovely stay and kudos to the staff and management!

Michelle Emeh

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hampton We were greeted and welcomed by a lovely front desk clerk I’m sorry I didn’t get her name but I wanted to lift her up

She was pleasant, professional and polite We arrived prior to check in and was pleasantly surprised that our room was ready The room and bathroom was clean and airy and it came equipped with a microwave/refrigerator The beds were super comfortable Breakfast was good, I personally don’t eat huge breakfast but all the amenities were in place to do so I loved the surrounding area, shops, restaurants etc etc We will definitely return Thank you Hampton Inn & Suites for a pleasant stay!!!

E Odum

The hotel had only one operating elevator average wait time was 5 minutes We opted for parking validation for the three nights we stayed However we ended up having to pay an extra $15 because our parking card was cut early

When presented to the manager, the best she could offer us was to call the parking garage owner There’s no number on the ticket or on St George’s site to contact anyone Our bathroom was not clean there was hair in the shower and on the floor The hotel offered no way to get change for the washer and dryer The best they could tell me was to go to cvs and get change The only good thing about this hotel was the location That’s why I gave them a two We will definitely consider other hotels in the area the next time we visit

This hotel was the cheapest we could find near DC which was really nice! We arrived early, but upon check in they had a room availableIt was my birthday, but the lady behind the counter didn’t even say happy birthday, which not a huge deal but when someone says it’s their birthday you normally say happy birthday, but what do I knowThe room was really nice, but I dont know if it’s the pillows or the bed, but doesn’t sleep all that great

Parking is 40$ which I found to be a lot of money and considering we are members of Marriott, maybe a discount or something?Good location tho 👌

Great hotel that’s located around the corner from Reagan National Airport!! The hotel is clean and the staff is friendly, attentive and helpful! The Bistro restaurant food is delicious I believe they serve breakfast and dinner This hotel has self parking in the garage below the hotel

My husband and I recently stayed a night to celebrate our wedding night The bed was very comfortable and the room was clean and sanitized but i was extremely shocked by the lack of amenities at this hotel There was no microwave in the room

There was no room service No breakfast the next morning They did not validate parking I think I was expecting a little more from a hotel of such quality It was nice for a quick staycation but i probably won’t stay here again

Marcus Douglas

Good hotel within walking distance of everything in National Harbor area It’s clean, the prices are decent, and the bar and breakfast are goodThe design of the room was a bit ‘industrial’ for my taste – very bare bones, lots of hard surfaces, not very inviting

But the bed was soft and ultimately got the job doneDuring the week I stayed, only one elevator was working and it was incredibly slow Also, on Friday night some guests were partying in the hallways all night, until 4am/5am

Steve Hudson

Great hotel Beds were excellent! Wonderful pillows Central location, views and cold air conditioning

A little disappointed that you had to pay $24 a day for a parking garage and that breakfast was not included Easy walking distance to shopping, dinner, waterfront views Overall, would definitely recommend them as consideration for a place to stay

Pros:The breakfast provided was niceI had a studio room which was nice and large/comfyAbout 10 minutes from the Dock and King streetCons:1)The walls were thin (ceiling and room to room walls)2) Several of the outlets in the room did not work3)The employees are rude (Other reviews said this, but I figured it couldn’t be that bad well I was wrong)-They did not explain the amenities-When I asked about additional charges, my questions were dismissed/ disregarded So make sure you are watching the charges they place on your card! It was more than just a hold charge-When I asked for a receipt, the front desk employee waved his hand in my face basically telling me to leave4)The parking is $32 per night (with in and out privileges), but the garage is creepy and looks like what you would see in a thriller movie where you’d get put in the trunk of a car The spaces are VERY tight and limited spaces

No other options around the hotel for parking except one where you have to pay each time you enter


Not well managed property Staff is slow and provides poor service Marriott needs to intervene

The gym has a sewer pipe leaking into a bucket splashing around for months Poor air flow in the rooms, the air conditioning unit doesn’t seem to come close to the setting and they allow pets so I find my breathing suffers here, I suppose from allergies The beds are a bit worn They replaced my towels and a large curly black hair was presented right on the front of the wash cloth, how niceThe breakfast is lame and unhealthy – all sugar and carbsThe gym is well equipped with weights which is really the only reason I have returned here but the plumbing leak I saw 3 months ago will keep me from coming back

Douglas Black

The good: fairly nice room with enough space and furniture for most needs Good location for Alexandria Breakfast is decent

The bad: they charge 32 dollars a night for parking Rooms are quite humid Wi-Fi is unsecured Hotel doesn’t allow legal firearms, so feels insecure

Location was perfect for a family vacation to DC Two blocks from the Metro (blue line) and about a mile from the waterfront in Old Town So many great restaurants nearby and fun shopping

They do have a breakfast that we didn’t try ($15/person) but if you are going to DC, eat at the hotel your first day It’s just easier until you get your bearings They don’t clean the rooms every day, which is fine, but you do have to be proactive about asking for towels and to get the trash emptied if you want that Their convenience store was woefully understocked so even though they have guest laundry on the second floor, I couldn’t use it because I couldn’t get soap Kind of a bummer The staff is very friendly and helpful Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are visiting DC Much cheaper than a DC hotel and you get to spend the evenings in Old Town Alexandria every night

Freespiriting xo.

I just wanted to first and foremost give the manager Joe a shout out!! There was an issue with a double charge for the room I booked, and this man went above and beyond to get it fixed and to show how apologetic he was that it happened It’s rare to come across employees/managers like him, and I just wanted him and the company know that he’s great and truly appreciated Because of you Joe whenever I’m in town, I’ll be staying here at this Hilton

Also, the rooms were clean and breakfast was great The location is perfect as well, it’s right across the street the a train station

Shontae Lashley

The accommodations were nice and what you would expect for a Hilton location My issue was with the billing, service and responsiveness of the manager After paying for my entire stay in advance via the Hilton app I was overcharged by the hotel who should have only charged me for parking

I expected a hold would be placed on my card for incidentals for $150, the hold ended up being $670 No one could explain why the hold was including what I had already paid for my 3 night stay along with the incidental deposit The entire hold finally released 5 days later but now I’ve been charged nearly $300 which is no where near what parking actually cost me I was told that this would be handled by the location manager on July 3rd and I would get a call from the manager I have yet to hear from anyone from the location nor have the charges been corrected Needless to say I will never stay at this location again I am also disappointed with Hilton Customer Care for their lack of support in this situation

Staff at front desk were super friendly when we checked in Room was nice and a good size Parking was behind the building across the street

Only bad parts that took a star away was the counter of the kitchen in our room was sticky, we found a few hairs on the bathroom counter and in a towel, and there was no dish soap to wash dishes, only the machine soap for the dishwasher Would stay here again!

This hotel is not in Alexandria They charge a $100 “refundable” fee on top of your room fee for incidentals This is not even noted on your room charge recipes

So I hope I am not going to be scammed out of $100 The first room we had smelled horribly of marijuana We had to ask to move rooms as there is no way I would stay in that room The hotelHas been updated but there are some things that were not replaced The bathroom door did not close The pool water was cloudy and the hot tub was closed The towels had hair on them The breakfast was decent We only stayed here for one night so it was good enough There area is a little sketchy as it is on the “other side” of the highway from Alexandria Staff was friendly

The staff was great That’s about it The first room I received was across from the hotel’s laundry

It was extremely hot Couldn’t get the temp inside the room below 78 degrees The second room was better The area is unsafe While I was there a car was broken into and someone’s truck was stolen a few days later People yelling all night outside the hotel, traffic and fire trucks all night, It was loud all the time I could hear people talking in the hall and in the rooms next to meThere is large gaps under the doors so you hear everything I wouldn’t pay to stay here I found a roach crawling around and there is an ant problem The guy in the room next to me was spraying bug killer around his room He said he went a bought some Spend your money someplace else

We stayed here on our visit to DC A good choice, the breakfast was subpar (there were no make your own waffles, probably for sanitary reasons, and the sausages and eggs were not particularly delicious) but the rooms were clean and it was fairly quiet The carpets could use a good deep clean, but that’s the case with anything that gets foot traffic

I had a really nice stay at this Hotel April of 2022 The pictures are an accurate description of the Hotel and room My interaction with the staff was pleasant

I self parked in the garage and was able to find good parking near the elevator each day I enjoyed dinner at Socci restaurant inside the Hotel on my final night The portions size was good The atmosphere was relaxing and romantic and the french fries was really delicious The location was nice and easy to access by car it was night a very far drive to the attractions of DC I recommend this Hotel and would stay again if ever in the Washington DC area

Phenomenal hotel The staff was friendly and very helpful I have to admit that I stayed in a regular room and a presidential suite and they were both fantastic

Obviously the presidential suite was next level awesome (tv in the shower and bathroom mirror, seriously) but both rooms were beautiful If I had to make one downside comment, it would be that the bar closes too early 10 pm just didn’t meet the mark but the food was delicious and the bartenders are very talented They also have an amazing selection of top shelf bourbons I highly recommend this hotel for a stay and for any major conference or event What a beautiful venue

Upon arrival we were warmly greeted Our room was upgraded The only negative was the price of parking increased because the correct price hasn’t been uploaded to the internet , so the vendor we went through provide incorrect information

I think the hotel should ensure this is corrected Apart from that our stay was enjoyable and the staff was very warm and helpful

Remember to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking a place They compare countless booking websites and normally will have prices much cheaper compared to others! Thank me later! This place is one of the best in the area

I’ve been coming here for a very long time If you decide to stay here you won’t be let downMy stay at the Harborside Hotel was INCREDIBLE! I was so excited to visit the National Harbor for the first time, I was very impressed by the level of customer service that I received Doris provided an excellent experience I am going bring my family back to celebrate here soon!

After having Shell Shocked from seeing the prices to stay at the MGM Hotel, we found this alternative that wasn’t too far away We were going to the MGM for a concert and wanted to spend the night The only thing that I really would say negative about this location is it may be near the harbor but you can’t see it, no water in sight anywhere

Also the shuttle that took us to the MGM and then our taxi who took us back after the show both told us that the area was not safe to walk around There also seemed to be quite a bit of either ambulances or fire trucks going by in the middle of the night Even though the casino is probably in walking distance I wouldn’t recommend it The nice thing about the hotel is they do have a shuttle that will take you to the casino, but it ends around 11:30 pm we didn’t get done with the show until after midnight and it cost us about $20 to get a taxi back to the hotel The staff was very friendly When we were there they were having a wedding reception on Friday and then some sort of benefit on Saturday morning so the place is used quite a bit for outside events Very clean and well-kept in really nice shape If I needed a hotel in this area again I may take a look around at some different places, but I wouldn’t be upset if I needed to come back here again


Just had our family reunion and the hotel gave us excellent service Thanks to Natasha and Nina for making our reunion a success Also, thanks to the hotel staff for their service and the professional services by all

I would highly recommend Harborside and the location is close to National Harbor and Washington DC And promity to stores in the area

I would not recommend staying here The staff treated us like they were doing us a favor and yet they don’t offer anything here The pool is closed

The valet is a joke but charges $49 a day There is no hospitality or warmth here The bar is supposed to close at 11, but they turned us away at 10:40 We then called and asked the front desk for a bottle opener and the rude staff person was obnoxious, arrogant, off putting and refused to help us out Instead he hung the phone up on us Never got the bottle opener Never got an apology for the awful service The GM was apparently on site and was made aware of our concerns and never once reached out Don’t stay here People wonder why robots are replacing them This stay would have been better if they had robots serving us

Young Juhn

Location and quality of the hotel was good But service was not much I requested early check-in and I do understand due to large events, rooms were not available but font desk staff communicated not just me but to all others like is customers’ fault asking for early check-in

Very disappointed staff training on customer service It damages the band value of The Westine

The hotel was clean and well-maintained Breakfast was decent, typical hotel breakfast It was disappointing that the pool was closed

The website did note this, which I appreciate The room is a fair size and we had all of our amenities The location was good Places to eat were nearby The parking lot was well lit at night Staff was pleasant enough

Duane Shurow

Booked a standard room for my wife and I and an accessible room for my parents They had difficulty finding the accessible room, even though I had a confirmation number Eventually gave us a room on the 4th floor

I asked if it was ‘accessible’ and was told “yes, it’s hearing accessible” Hotel was fully booked and that room was all that was available Thankfully, the room was very very nice and the beds very comfortable – so my parents didn’t mind a little inconvenienceYou are required to leave a separate deposit upon registering that is returned “in 3 to 5 business days” – not a big deal – but a little oddAttempted to charge some snacks to my room and was told that I did not have a card on fileeven though I booked the room with a cardand left a deposit for a cardRoom service was provided, which was appreciated, but did not replace towels or replace the coffeePool is closed indefinitelyNice hotel, good location, very comfortable rooms Would have given this 4 stars but too many of the little things seem to be missing Would probably try them again

The Smoyers

NEVER AGAIN! I cannot believe how rude the staff was First, we took our kids to the pool at 9am (the signs at the pool said open 9a-10p) The door was locked

My husband went to the front desk where the manager was, to which the manager replied that it doesn’t open until 10am My husband questioned why the sign was wrong, and the manager stated he “DOES NOT HAVE TO update the paper”, he “only has to update the time on the website”, and had no plans to fix the sign (it was just a piece of paper printed off of the computer)The next day, I went down to the lobby to request a set of towels My husband and I were traveling with our children, and routine maid service is no longer existent during stays (only available upon request) I asked the woman at the front for 6 bath towels (for our showers that night) and she told me I “DID NOT NEED 6 TOWELS” and that she would only be giving me 4!? When additionally saying I would like one for my hair, she LITERALLY TOLD ME I DID NOT NEED A TOWEL FOR MY HAIR I was completely floored I am still trying to process that this woman spoke to me like a child and told me what I needed and did not need She refused me towels just wow Would she like us to share towels??The hotel is nice, but the level of service was terrible I can’t believe the rudeness coming from two people in the hospitality industry, let alone just two human beings in general

Well appointed clean rooms, friendly staff, comfy beds, big TV with good choice of channelsThe toiletries are a bit stingy, the elevators on the slow side The on-site restaurant served good food but service suffered when dealing with large groups

The breakfast buffet had good selection of items with attentive service Buy your beer and drinks at the local CVS not the overpriced convenience shop A very handy 15 minute shuttle ride to Reagan Airport

Adeline Rudolph

The good:Attractive, well-appointed hotel, 1/3 mile to the metro Parking avail on-site for $40 per night you stay (which is pricey for the area) Beds pretty comfy

Safe part of town, close in (Busy) Starbucks onsiteWe stayed three nightsNot so good:1) they start knocking on doors to clean rooms about 6:20-6:30am I even heard the cleaning staff joking, “well, I’m trying but everyone is still asleep” Vacuum noise an hour before you planned to wake up isn’t great2) the a/c is odd, controls are on wall, though it seems like they’d be on unit Unit is loud and makes room fluctuate in wide range all night between very warm to very cold3) room was cleaned well, but odd issues like there was a brown stain on our shower curtain, rusty shower drain, a hinge on hallway door had thick paint melting off or maybe mold?4) shower head is lower, just at my hairline and I’m 5’8 No conditioner or body wash provided Just soap and shampoo5) driving here from the north is tricky, the 395 exit to Clark Street is a very poorly designed intersection so be carefulI’d likely stay again if the price were right Though I think I may find somewhere with cheaper parking (many in the city had $25/day)

Karimah J

The only good thing about this hotel is the location Other than that it’s outdated and not as clean as it should be I wiped everything down upon arrival and the handles were dirty on the dresser

Parking is also an outrageous priceOn top of that, I received a charge on my card from the gift shop I never visited When I called about it they had another cc linked to my account A manager was supposed to reach out but never didWhen I checked my statement a few days after that, they charged my card $400+!! I called and spoke to someone in accounting and he couldn’t figure out what the charges were Mind you, I checked out of this hotel May 1st and spoke to accounting May 4 & 6I check my statement today May 9, and have another $400+ charge to my cc that was charged Sat May7I’m disputing everything with my bank and I recommend everyone to check your cc statements after checkout Someone who works there is definitely doing something shady
