The Front Desk person was extremely charming and helpful. I made an error on-line with my reservation and she patiently assisted me in assuring I would get my room. Originally, I had planned to stay one night. But, stayed two instead. The room was exceptionally clean and very quiet. I was able to get plenty of work done on my computer without disturbance. I would offer, however, a more meaningful diet, rather than vending machines. Although, it was not an inconvenience for me to walk a few blocks to get something to eat. It was close enough that, I had a takeout dinner and it was still hot-warm when I returned to my room.
The price was very reasonable and the location was perfect, close to public transportation and within a walk to the Metro station, of course, I do not have a car, so this was extremely important to me.
In a nutshell, my stay there was next to perfect. I say next to perfect because, the food was lacking. At a minimum, can we get some donuts in the morning with coffee?
It should be noted, however, that the staff there deserve recognition. And, I checked in on 11/7/2010 and checked out 11/09/2010.
