4/10 Fair

Very disappointing stay
The state was disappointing in that, well charged a $30 a day amenity fee, the gym had no working machines or air conditioning. In addition, three separate times in a two day stay the water went off while I was in the shower. When Maintenance was cold I was told it is a problem on the 12th floor and I should just turn on the water in the sink while in the shower and that might help. Finally, the air conditioning in the room was insufficient give them the hot weather Washington was experiencing.
