Stayed at this hotel this week,, It has been a Crown Plaza for 3 weeks, previously a Raddisson. I had a room on the West side of the hotel. They don't have insulated drapes for the windows and even with the AC on high and the curtains closed, the temp continued to rise and remained at an unacceptable level. Had to request a new room on the shady side of the building. The rooms are nice and clean with good internet wireless service. At 4:15pm I called the front desk about shuttle service, told it runs at 10 minutes after the hour. In 45 minutes I was waiting, asked at the front desk and told "in a few minutes". At 20 minutes after asked the bell man, he said driver was in the hotel should be out in a minute. The driver came out and when asked said, "there is no shuttle today, it broke down this morning". Check out was efficient, but no one even asked if I enjoyed my stay or if I found everything OK. I'm hoping they'll improve with time, the location is convenient to Old Town and also D.C.
