“Hard to nail down a reservation, but worth the effort.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

I had to make multiple online inquiries, send multiple emails, and make multiple phone calls to book this accommodation ... even days after I had prepaid the whole stay by credit card at their secure site and had received a confirming email they said I had no reservation! Call me exasperated. But, it was worth it, the room was as advertised, attractive, clean, real nice. Ran out of TP before my 5 night stay was over. Good wifi connection, even reached to the outdoor patio area where it was nice to sit. To get adequate air flow and cooling I had to move the table that blocked the air conditioner when it got to 95F outside. There is no one onsite and no lobby; you are given customizable keypad codes to gain entry. My room was at ground level but to reach it I had to walk up a half flight of stairs then down again. Reasonable price, great location for me, reasonably quiet urban neighborhood. Almost anything you could want is within 10 minutes walking distance. I will stay there again.

Room Tip: All rooms accessible only by stairs.

Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate the time you took to share your experience.

We did have a temporary glitch with our contact service as the new website went live and we integrated the reservations systems between our listings and our internal software the same week. We had a few bugs to work out to ensure we were receiving emails from our website. We also discovered that his reservation, which came in during our integration set-up, had not been recorded. The glitches were quickly rectified and we were back to fully functional in a few days.

We are pleased to hear that after this initial blip "down2biz" had a great experience, and moreover appreciated the good value and great location of DuPont Place. The fact that he plans to return is the greatest endorsement of this new hotel alternative.
Thank you!
