My organization held an all day meeting in one of the Suites in this hotel. It was my first experience at the hotel and I have recommended it to several other friends and family alike. The suite was large, clean with amazing views and the staff was even better. The meeting was booked on short notice and everyone was fantastic. I had great experiences with the following staff members who all deserve a "shout out" - Geta, Ariel, Million, Marcy, Beryl & Kate!! Thank you all for providing a great experience for me and my team for a very productive planning session.

This hotel is conveniently located. The hotel staff were wonderful and very accommodating. All our requests were promptly taken care of. The roof top bar & pool is beautiful. I want to express my sincere gratitude to the concierge/manager who went out of her way on more than one occasion to make our stay enjoyable. All staff from bellhop, help desk, waiters, bar man, room cleaners were very friendly and helpful. The food in both restaurants was delicious and I would highly recommend the french toast in the Sunday brunch :=)))

I had a fabulous stay at Hotel Zena, Valet attendant Millian brought our bags from the car to the room during check in and vice-versa during check out. Receptionist Ms Van was very courteous and polite. Excellent service and wonderful staff. will definitely stay here again. Mahalo for hosting us.

We loved the location of the hotel. It was right in front of Thomas Circle where we came to see the Pride Parade. Everywhere we turned, staff was helpful, polite and professional. Van was patient with me at checkout when I wanted to split the charge between two cards and Millian went above and beyond to get my bags to me when I checked in and to my car when I checked out. I wish I could shout out more of the staff but I didn't get their names. Sorry all...I loved the hospitality and will be staying there again.
