We stayed at the Carlyle Suites this month. As a frequent traveler, and frequent reviewer, I often write and read reviews here at Trip Advisor. This time, I was in a hurry and read reviews quickly but didn't bother to read individual reviews by visitors to this hotel. I was surprised to find out, after an 8 hour drive to get there, that they had no more parking. I found out that parking was on a first come/first serve basis. We arrived in the evening and found out there was no parking. I went in and told them I would have to cancel. A surly employee at the front desk notified me that I had a non-refundable hotel (which I had paid in full on Hotels.com). After a few minutes of arguing about wether or not I could really cancel my reservation, the manager Simon came over and said he would solve the problem. He moved his car and gave us his parking space! The second issue was that the king bed we had paid for was no longer available and they only had doubles. After another cranky moment (remember, I had been in a car for 8 hours) along came Simon and waving his magic wand, we got our king bed. After these two incidents, our stay was wonderful. The hotel is really wonderful. Our room was large and light and well appointed. The neighborhood was great and the hotel is a short walk to many restaurants and a nearby metro stop. I would highly recommend staying here. I know that I will go back.
