  • 6.0.Good

    Rude receptionist.

    Overall everything was very good EXCEPT one person at the front desk. Saturday there was no parking and lady at the front desk suggested to park at city hall and gave a coupon for the restaurant which was nice. Then Sunday afternoon the guy at the desk refused to provide parking on-site even though plenty of parking available. He was very rude and obliviously racist against the colored people. Otherwise, our experience was good. Location and Nice breakfast are plus.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Likes - Location was good - Glebe Area is good. Not too far from byward, etc. Check in was good and easy. Staff were friendly. Nice to have buffet breakfast included with variety, free water bottles included, take as much as you want. Room size was great with family - we had the upgraded suite with kitchen, living room, dining room which was fantastic for us. Computer in the room. Parking lot is right next door to the hotel. Dislikes - outdated hotel...seems like more like a converted university residence than a business hotel. Didn’t seem overly clean. Bathroom was dated. From the other reviews that we saw it seemed like it was a 4 star hotel. I’d probably say it’s a 3 out of 5 star hotel but if you need the space for family it’s perfect.

  • 6.0.Good

    The property was bland and average. The accommodations small but clean- biggest let down was after a very long day looked forward to relaxing in front of one of the TWO TVs to relax and NEITHER worked. When called front desk, was told a maintenance man would come to our room in about 15 minutes because he was busy. At 10:30 at night? No thanks. Reservation was made well in advance, any tv issues should have been resolved before our arrival. $20 to park on top of a not exactly economy priced room. Never again.
