I stayed at the hotel for one night on a business trip the week of June 23, 2013. The Metro is a block away and there is a police station around the corner. I checked in at 9:45 pm. The clerk at the check-in desk was very friendly. The check-in is on the second floor. The first floor was manned by 3 or 4 guards, who were also friendly. The neighborhood is going through a gentrification, and what appears to be a change from an idustrial/residential to commercial.
The hotel is fairly new and it is evident in the room I stayed in, the hallways and the elevators. The bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was spacious, with an excellent working shower.
The ONE VERY BIZARRE requirement was the fact that guests are required to sign a document that they will be fined several hundred dollars if they make noise. This requirement and the document itself led me to think "oh boy, what kind of night am I going to be having here." Whe I inquired as to why this requirement was exstant, I was met with a blank stare and the following statement "managment requires it". That was not good enough for me, at that juncture!
Indeed, if it was earlier in the day I would have cancelled my reservation and sought out other lodging.
BUT, as it turned out everything was fine. And, upon checkout the staff was again friendly and proficient.
I would stay here again!
