For every good experience you have here, there seems to be a bad experience to counteract it. The room was comfortable, yet the AC was so loud that it made it hard to sleep when it constantly shut on and off at night. We finally just turned it to the lowest setting and it remained on the entire night as white noise.
The pool on the top floor has a great view and is fun to splash around in, yet the blue paint on its rim was flaking off everywhere, filling the water with floating paint chips.
The people are friendly yet upon leaving, the doorman tried to pull a quick bait and switch by telling us that a taxi to the airport cost up to $70 (though on a Sunday, it was only $58) and that we could get a town car for a flat fee of $60. But when we were led back to the office to pay, suddenly the price jumped to $65, and both the driver and doorman were rude when we declined to be ripped off and took a taxi.
The hotel is right on the red subway line into downtown Washington DC (about a 20-25 minute trip) but the WiFi costs $9.95 per day and is super slow (it takes Google maps about 1 minute to load).
So not the worst hotel, but certainly not the best.
