Wayland, Massachusetts
Reviewed 3 days ago NEWvia mobile

We very much enjoyed our stay. The room was large and comfortable and service was very good throughout the stay. I would only stay there, however, if you like "contemporary" hotel style. It is very modern looking in furnishing and fixtures. But it is a very short walk into all of Georgetown and the DC Waterfront complex.

I was visiting my daughter with my wife in Georgetown and, after going through consecutive fiascos with the Kimpton and the Four Seasons, which basically gave us rooms that were different than the ones we reserved, I was desperate to find something available right away for 3 nights. Going through all the problems was so worth it because it allowed...

We stayed for a few days just to see the cherry blossom trees this year. The room is quite small but perfect for us. Had a great view of the water from our room. The guys downstairs opened the door for us every time and helped with anywhere you wanted to go. The one thing I did not like was...
