The staff is very friendly - but there are serious strikes that are simply unacceptable in a hotel in the greater DC area.
-Charging for internet access. Seriously? In 2012? I have been to 2-star holes in other parts of the country and have had free wi-fi. Charging for internet in this day is simply a foul.
-Hotel advertisements on the television that ruin viewing. You read that correctly. Every ten of fifteen minutes one-fourth of my tv screen was filled with an advertisement (part of the hotel system) that bragged about a 'surround sound' system. It interrupts tv viewing. Really - ads on top of ads already on the tv? When I want to watch tv, I don't want it eclipsed by ads - haven't I already paid for the room?
-Needed a second set of room key cards. . .and they barely worked. . .
Nice people, decent location . . what on earth is going on here?
