Last August, my family and I stayed at the Greenbelt RI and had a negative experience. My August review detailed many of the reasons. After our stay, I received a kind call from the GM and was assured that the issues I was troubled with would never happen again.
I decided to stay at this property again in December and all aspects of my stay were excellent. The first thing I noticed was the instant smile on the face of the front desk attendant who checked me in. She was wonderful and welcoming. Check in was efficient. The 2-brm suite was spotless and everything worked. The public areas were also spotless and this was even with a school swim team occupying a number of the rooms, along with some wet weather.
One interesting piece of paperwork I was asked to sign upon check in was a "no party waiver." That may not be the exact title of the sheet, but that's the essence of it. When signing, I had to agree that I would not host loud and lively parties (past a particular hour, I think) AND I had to agree to call the front desk if I was subject to noisy neighbors enjoying a party of their own. Wow--I haven't ever had to sign anything like that before in any of my travels, but I can recall a handful of times in past years when I wish I had!
Some previous reviewers have mentioned that a car is needed if staying in the area. Yes, that is true, however there is a TGIF w/in walking distance, just in case! When having a car, several main arteries (highways) can be quickly accessed. I'd also estimate that it's no more than a 5-minute drive to most shopping and eatery options. University of Maryland (College Park) is about a 10-minute drive and The Catholic University of America is a 20-25 min. drive.
My entire stay was incredibly positive, everyone was incredibly friendly and I can easily say that I will stay again, if this location is optimal for my needs. I am really glad that I gave this hotel a second chance!
