My husband and I, together with out 2 friends stayed for 3 nights at the hotel in June.
The room was good, clean and nice. However, the service was horrible.
One afternoon we left the room late (12pm) after a sleep in and came back to find that the room had not been cleaned at all. We buzzed reception and were told that the rooms only got cleaned once a day and we had missed it so too bad.
Unsatisfied with this answer, we went down to the front desk to clarify what was going on. The manager on duty was the rudest I'd ever had to displeasure of dealing with. She repeated that it was our fault that the room had not been made up.
Halfway through our conversation with her, she went off without warning and served another customer and left us hanging for a good 15 minutes. After that she refused to talk to us and was just downright rude.
I am very disappointed in the level of service at this internationally known hotel chain.
I would never recommend anyone stay there. It completely ruined our trip to DC.
