I stayed here for business, as part of a group for a conference, so I didn't pay the bill, but I know that the rooms were pretty expensive...more than I think they'd be worth. Also, it cost $50/day to valet your car, which was outrageous to me, but apparently standard in DC? I also had to pay extra for wifi internet. I've complained about this before, but again, why motels can provide free wifi and nicer hotels can't I will never understand. Well, yes, I guess I can understand: They expect their guests to be suckers is what I suspect. Anyway, I can't deal w/o wifi, so I paid $15/day for it. Again, I thought that was outrageous as well.
The staff was nice, and the room was clean. Not nearly enough counter space in the bathroom...actually, there isn't really a bathroom counter, just a ledge. Oh, the building was also FREEZING. Seriously, like a meat locker. Most places in the US like to go nuts with AC, but this was too much.
Now to the title of my review. The fire alarm went off at 4am the last night I was there. Everyone left (taking the stairs of course) the building, and we all watched from outside waiting for the hotel to start going up in flames. It didn't, thankfully, and we all went back to our rooms shortly after, but it was unsettling to say the least. It's never happened in any other hotel where I've stayed. When I was checking out, I asked if they might not cut me a break on account of that inconvenience (I don't know, cover the internet or parking for a day or something), and the gentleman kept saying that it was for my safety. I said I understood and appreciated it, that I realized it wasn't their fault, but that it was an inconvenience nonetheless and as a hotel, they should care about that stuff. Ultimately, he took $25 off my bill, which was nice, but I still think it wasn't enough and he argued with me too much.
