Don’t stay here if:
You can’t climb stairs. There is no elevator & it is one flight up just to check in.
You expect a 24 hour front desk or concierge.
You expect daily maid service.
You don’t like contemporary furniture or would just be more comfortable in a traditional style hotel.
Do stay here if:
You get their $150.00/night price. It was the cheapest I found in this area.
You appreciate an apartment like setting.
You like to get out & walk.
What I liked:
The location. Take a right out of the hotel & you can walk Wisconsin Ave down to the river. Along the way are shops, restaurants, cafes bustling with city life & charming side streets.
The very nearby Safeway full service super market (with plenty of take out food), Starbucks & liquor store.
The Café Divan (next door) with it’s large, interesting, reasonably priced menu, both eat in & take out. We enjoyed breakfast there.
The little kitchen with a coffee maker, under the counter fridge & micro.
Having both a living room & bedroom. Felt more like an apartment than a standard hotel setting.
The contemporary furnishing. Not my first choice but a fun change of pace.
The privacy. Felt very private.
Everything worked: air conditioning, room cards, hot water, etc. There was a hair dryer, iron & ironing board.
What I didn’t like:
The locked front door when we arrived & no answer to the posted phone numbers. Someone did appear within a couple of minutes to check us in.
Writing my credit card information on a piece of paper at check in.
No coffee for the coffee pot.
No soap. There was shampoo & conditioner.
No enough light in the bathroom. There was one overhead light. Really could use us some more light around the mirror.
Minimal flatware, glasses, plates, etc in kitchen.
No ice maker but you can get ice from the Café Divan.
