I think the room was great and I loved that it was right in the middle of everything. It certainly made using the public transportation easy. There are three bus stops at the corner of this hotel. The Circular bus is what we used the entire weekend (was only there for the Womens Nike race. The start line was a few blocks away. The bus is only a $1 per trip and was much cheaper than the subway (metro). The staff was friendly, but the elevator was broken the entire weekend. First I should say the elevator states the maximum load is 8, which is already small. but when you put luggage in there, you can barely hold 3. The smallest elevators i have ever seen. My linen closet is bigger than the elevators there. Secondly, they would not function properly. We were on the tenth floor and at one point the maid told us to take the stairs because it would "be a while". When the elevator did decide to move it would stop at every floor no matter what. It was just not funcitoning properly. This occured no matter the time of day. For such a nice hotel and such a nice price tag, the issue with the elevator should have been corrected on the first day. We left 3 days later, it was still broken.
