i stayed here a last year for almost 3 weeks and I had a great experience. This time I stayed for 1 night and decided I won't be going back because of bugs. First off i will say that they did improve the valet. They were courteous and approached my car when I pulled in, and there is a valet stand so you actually know who is valet. I needed my car a few times during my stay and each time they were on time (still had to call 30 mins ahead but that was fine with me). Breakfast was okay- nothing fancy and the reception was the same. Staff was courteous as they were on my last stay.
The reason I will not stay again is because of the bugs I found in the bed(s). I do not know if they were bed bugs, but nonetheless there was a bug crawling on the comforter of room 1401 so I switched rooms and found a tiny bug crawling on the pillowcase in room 1406. Different bugs in each room. Also, each of the rooms had a pillowcase with what looked like makeup on them. They may have been "clean" and just stained with makeup but not something I would want to lay my head on. The GM and manager came up and inspected the bed and surrounding area and decided they were not bed bugs. I did my own inspection and decided to stay in the room for the night. I didn't get any bites that night but I have since cancelled my upcoming 3 week reservation to stay there again.
I will not stay here again but I would still recommend this hotel if you're looking for something close to the metro, serves breakfast, an evening reception and a small gym. Close to Whole Foods and many casual eateries- just be sure to check the mattress for bugs before settling in your room. I also think $12 is high for valet considering you have to call down 30 minutes ahead, and there is no wi-fi in the room.
