This is the first time I've reviewed a hotel on day 2 of a 7-day stay. Based on the other reviews, I was expecting more. The hotel is new and close to the Metro, grocery and drug stores - just steps away. The wifi is free, which is great. The people are friendly and helpful, but I have to give this hotel low marks for some of the basics, like the sink doesn't drain and it takes a long time to get warm water just to shave. The soap dispensers barely dispense any soap. There are no drawers for clothing, so you have to live out of your suitcase. I have a presentation tomorrow and really need an iron. I asked around 6:30 p.m. thinking there would be a few available, but apparently they have 3 on the property and none available. For a tourist, this wouldn't be a big deal, but for a business traveler becomes a problem. Yes, I could have asked sooner, but just assumed that a hotel would have some on hand if not in the rooms. Now, all the stores are closed so I'm steaming clothes in the shower. As a Priority Club Gold member, I'm unimpressed (literally).
