First, the positives: safe neighborhood (altho far from the Metro),excellent hot shower, nice rooftop bar. Their trademark "wind-up" vintage Chevy out front always made me grin. And unlike previous TripAdvisor reviewers, I found the front desk and breakfast room staff to be accomodating and very friendly.
The room itself was lacking: no coffeemaker (at these rates we should get a free Mr. Coffee every day!), 3 hangers and a wacky key system by which if you want to access the fridge, you need to turn off all the electricity in the room. The sole tiny table was stacked high with design magazines, as if to convince the guest of how trendy the place is. (I kept moving the magazines to the closet so we could actually use the one table, but housekeeping kept moving them back...cute.) Check-out took way too long (because housekeeping had to inventory the 100 or so mini-bar items.)
I could live with all this, but the noise was inexcuseable. Ever sleep in a disco? Several nights a week (including weeknights), a discoteca inside the hotel blasted "trance" music from about 10 pm to well past 1:00 a.m. The hotel erected "sound barriers" to protect suffering guests, but they're paper-thin jokes. When the party broke up, drunken crowds lingered outside, yelling, fighting, revving motorcycles. To compound this insanity, every morning at 5:30 a.m., two guys set up an official looking table on the street just below our window and proceeded to laugh, scream and blast a radio until sunrise.
Obviously, hotel management made a calculated decision that operating a disco for young locals outweighs the lost revenue from travelers like me who will not return.
