A three night business stay.
The positive: service is very good. Room request was accommodated (not facing Fairfax), shuttle to NSF and Metro station etc. Small store with decent prices. Lobby bar is nice.
Needs improvement: the rooms are old, small bathroom and tired wallpaper and carpet. Like many Holiday Inn properties. The pool was ice cold, no way you could swim after work to relax.
The worst: the AC was very old and loud. I didn't sleep well at all, even with ear plugs.
I wouldn't stay here again.
The chain should invest some dollars in updates, the staff is top notch and with decent AC this could be a great place!
