Not the best place in town. Everything at average, nothing frankly good. The fitness devices are just outdated or out of order and the room dedicated to fitness is so small. Very bad experience with laundry service, so do it yourself.

I can't post enough great comments about the employees here. From the check-in desk to housekeeping to the restaurant and bar. I stayed there with a friend on Veteran's Day weekend. People there are friendly, helpful, and delightfully animated. Kudos go out especially to the bartender, Ron Clark. He not only made us tremendous drinks, but he gave us wonderful...

I recently stayed 2 nights. The staff, especially Manager Eddie and the bartender, was great. The kitchen however did not honor my request for rare hamburgers. The hotel is older but everything worked in my room.

Had a great time at this hotel. Tina at the front desk and Eman I. in the bar were both great. They attended to everything we needed and gave us great recommendations in the area. They made our stay feel like a home away from home. Thank you!!!

In DC and can't always get home at night. I wondered into this hotel and JW helped me out the wednesday before thanksgiving. I hooked me up with the late check out which was perfect because I was tired and needed to stretch out on a nice, big bed, watch some mindless T.V. and catch a few Zs before work...

This is the second time I stay at the hotel and I have always been well looked after. I especially want to highlight the kindness of Eddie who in English or Spanish always has a very kind treatment. Best regards.

Hotel is nice. One elevator is not working currently so the morning rush to get down to lobby can take a little longer than usual. The bartender (Ron Clark) is great. The food choices are limited but the quality of food is decent.

Thank you for your review of our hotel and your nice comments about one of our employees. We have begun an elevator rehabilitation project to replace all of our elevator cars one at a time. When completed, the new cars will provide a faster and smoother ride for all of our guests. We hope that you will visit us again.
