Quality Inn & Suites New York Avenue
Ranked #132 of 142 Hotels in Washington DC
Reviewed September 17, 2012

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at this hotel for one night. We were upgraded to a king suite which was very nice, and would have been a fantastic room if it were us plus a couple kids or two couples. The hotel interior is tough to beat—very lovely room, comfortable bed, flat-panel TV, granite counters, modern styling, a lovely lobby.

Many people reviewing this property say parking is free but it isn't anymore... it's $12 per night.

The shuttle is free to Union station but it doesn't run late enough at night to bring you back to the hotel if you're going to be out late (we got back late from a concert). So we just drove ourselves and luckily found street parking near the Union station.

Breakfast was good, pretty typical fare for a hot breakfast. I didn't try the coffee so I can comment on it.

The staff was very helpful and friendly.

My only complaint about the hotel itself is that the bathroom didn't have any towel bars at all. So there was nowhere to put a hand towel or a bath towel. Very odd and inconvenient.

The area this hotel is in is BAD. Yes there are vagrants and hookers out and about. And seedy motels and liquor stores and trashy, vacant lots. You would be a fool to walk anywhere from this hotel. That's my only complaint about the area.

Stayed 4 nights. Price is reasonable for DC. The area is not the best but I left early and came back late so it didn't bother me. Staff is very friendly. Breakfast is basic but nice. The shuttle to and from Union Station is a huge plus. Free parking. Free wi-fi. My room was clean and big. Walking distance to McDonalds, Checkers, Taco Bell and a couple other fast food places. Gas stations/convenience stores very close.

We were moving our daughter into college and taking our pickup truck to move all of her things. Underground parking was not going to work in msot cases because the truck is 21 feet long and 6 feet high, so one of the most important criteria in searching for a hotel was parking. Not only did I need above ground parking, but also secure parking. Not being all that familiar with DC, I chose this hotel after searching online, becuase it seemed the parking would work out. We found the hotel to be in a VERY rough part of town, and although the parking area was gated, and they claimed to have security at night we were not reassured. The lobby of the hotel was updated, but the rooms were run down. The suite had a sofa bed that you could not sit on and definitely could never sleep on! We requested another room and it was equally run down, with another sofa bed that was falling apart. We left the hotel and moved to a hotel that I had previously stayed at and liked very much, but I thought the parking would be a problem, (and when I had previously checked was unavailable for the dates we were travelling). A phone call determined that they had available rooms and their valet only garage could accomodate the pickup truck. The best part is the per night rate was really HALF what the disgusting Comfort Inn wanted for a room. The hotel we ultimately stayed inn was the Homewood Suites on Massachusetts Ave., NW. I have now stayed there three times. The staff is always friendly and helpful, the rooms are immaculate. Each has a king bed, suite with queen sleeper, fridge, microwave, dishwasher and stove top. The only negative is the buffet breakfast which is not great.

Room Tip: Tried two rooms and they were both awful. I don't think there are any good rooms.

Three friends and I stayed in a two queen bedroom (with a cot) and found the room very comfortable. It is off the beaten path and the area of town is a little ‘run down’ so we took the shuttle provided to and from Union Station or cabs. The breakfast was good and the coffee and tea area in the lobby was nice. The staff was nice, even when it got crazy with people checking in and out. It was just a place to lay our heads, so for the price, it was well worth it.

Checked in by a very friendly and helpful gentleman named Dennis. He was very polite and accomodating to all of my requests (yes we were tourists). Some covered parking to choose from, room was nicely decorated and clean. Had a flat screen tv, fridge and well appointed bathroom. Was worried about facing out to the street but heard virtually no noise. Continental breakfast was average. Check out was uneventful and not nearly as nice as Dennis but I guess he can't work 24hrs!

We had just missed our flight at the airport and our airliner recommended this hotel at a very discounted Rate. We were booked into the king suite. The room was clean and comfortable. Our receptionist ordered a take out for us and the breakfast was good. My only complaint was the lukewarm shower. For anyone stuck in a long layover at the airport I would recommend this hotel. A free shuttle runs every half hour between the airport and the hotel.
