I went to DC for the 2011 Suntrust National Marathon and chose the hotel for it's location to the race and easy metro access. My hubby, brother and I could have not been happier! From the moment we stepped out of our 6 hour car drive, the doorman, Ron made us feel welcomed and like Kings.
The hotel's lobby is Gorgeous and it was really nice to walk in and know we were staying here. We were greeted with a smile by Annie (hope that is her name) at the front desk. She made sure my brother and I had the same floor and gave me aas quiet room as she could find so I could get sleep.
My brother's room didn't have a view and was a little dark but that was fine, he was very happy there. I had a view overlooking the park somewhat and it was REALLY uncomfortable to have the shower the way it was set-up (as everyone has described) they do have to change that! If you stay with a friend or a colleague, there is NO privacy. The room was very small and kinda cramped. The sink is in the actual room near the bed but not that much bothersome that we had an issue but it was strange and maybe I would have changed rooms if I didn't crash and go to sleep. Really Nice bed and my floor was quiet.
The SERVICE of the hotel is what STANDS OUT, from Greg (concierge) to the Audi "drive you up the street" service, we did not meet anyone who didn't smile and didn't know I wasn't running the marathon.....I still don't know how half the folks knew!!
We celebrated my race at the upstairs club, it was nice and had a great view. Boring but it got better as the night progressed, great place for singles!! Wish they had more seats available to guests though, we had no where to sit and my legs were killing me.
Also, I had a really hard time getting a cab the day of the marathon and I had a lovely lady run blocks at 6am trying to get me a cab the morning of the race, the metro access absolutely failed and I was almost in tears! She calmed me down and got me there!
I told my hubby when we go back this is the place for us! I cannot wait to go back again for my next race!
