We stayed there for 3 nights. Upon arrival you walk into a massive domed lobby/ck-in area that is lovely. Check-in was pretty easy. This hotels location is actually very good. You're honestly maybe 2 blocks from the zoo and a 2 min walk to the Metro. The grounds are beautiful, you have one 'tower' that is more modern then you have the historic tower which looks from the exterior beautiful (we stayed in the more updated 'main' tower). Our first room was on the 8th floor which has some water damage being repaired in the hallway. We were put in a handicap king room. Which was fine for us (family of 4--2 adults and 1 child and 1 baby). However when we walked into our room it smelled musty and had a very old smell to it. The front desk was great and able to change our room. The next room DID NOT have a weird smell, but had these huge black tar'ish stains on the carpet, which made me a little anxious to have our 9 month old crawling around. Overall the room did NOT seem that clean. I did a wipe down with our antibacterial wipes. Door handles on the closet were sticky (GROSS), toilet seat was old and chipped, slightly dusty, and needed a good cleaning with some soapy hot water.
The beds were fairly comfortable. The restaurant/breakfast had several options (eggs, cold items, fruit, breads, sausage, potatoes, waffles, pancakes,etc.) but I feel $22.95 for breakfast buffet was insane. You could walk out and grab a sandwich at Mc D's (ugh) sadly no bagel place or Starbuck's to grab a breakfast sandwich. One morning I ordered from the menu, had small serving of hash browns, 2 chicken sausage, 2 eggs, toast for $17......I hate hotel prices, but you're paying for being onsite and having the ease of eating right there.
Parking $37 or $41 --- SERIOUSLY INSANE!!! Wifi in-room $16 --- AGAIN REALLY?!?!?!?
Overall for the price we paid - it was a group rate, it was a good deal. However, I don't believe it was worth more than $135 per night and that is ONLY if you get a rate that included parking. I would have paid more for another hotel that had all the little luxuries and attention to detail that make for a lovely stay.
