Dear j_mills33, Thank you for sharing your review! I'm glad that Hotel Hive was your headquarters for a great weekend getaway with friends. I'm very happy to hear that, from an easy reservation making process to Sakina's friendly welcoming, your trip got started on an amazing note! Sakina's great service has not gone unnoticed and she will definitely be recognized for her kind efforts. We love that you got of the room and joined the buzz that Hive and DC has to offer. Overall, I'm very glad that your coworker's great experience led to one of your own. We can't wait for you to return to Hive for some good vibes on the rooftop! Thanks, Bryna
