Spent 3 nights, Thursday-Saturday, June 23-25. Loved the neighborhood, loved the location. Everything was convenient from bakery, grocery, restaurants and Metro. From the hotel to the Metro and across town to Union Station took less than a half hour during rush hour! Safe neighborhood with plenty of people walking at all hours. The staff at the desk was welcoming and friendly. They offered us free parking in a small, somewhat cramped lot, but the staff actually came out to the lot and helped us and another guest park our cars. We never moved our car during our stay because the Metro is so convenient. We didn't use the bar or the breakfast service since there were so many alternatives nearby. The only reason we don't give this hotel an excellent rating was because the room smelled musty and stale when we checked in which prompted us to got out immediately and buy some room freshener. However, the room was immaculately clean. The housekeeping staff did a great job. The kitchenette was well equipped and again, very clean. The bed was heavenly. The carpet looked stained and a bit worn, but clean. The bathroom shower is a bit strange, especially for Americans who aren't used to having an open shower, but we found it was fine. The shower wasn't real forceful, but it was adequate and we appreciate that the hotel is trying to be "green." It certainly isn't anything to complain about! The lobby seemed busy and bustling but not overcrowded. There seemed to be a nice mix of families and tourists as well as business people. We loved our stay and plan to return!
