The hotel itself is nice, but its right accross the road from a nasty looking hip hop club. The Police are outside from the early evening like clock work I am told, lights flashing, cops working the crowd etc, by the time it gets dark every hip hop punk and street walker descends on the street and hangs out wheater they are going to the club or not. I am a smoker so i was outside smoking several times in the evening and every single time i would go down out front a barrage of punks would try to solicit money or smokes and it got close to ugly once or twice as the little twerps did not want to take no for an answer. Couples returning to the hotel were constantly harassed too. On the Friday night before my Marine Corps marathon there was a running confrontation between the Police and the punks. The staff at the hotel although very nice, seemed oblivious to this being a problem. I would not want any of my family or friends to have to stay here. And since you cannot bring a CHL piece to DC I'll not either.
