I'm surprised at all the rave reviews for this place. We felt it was only average. There were good things. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is excellent, only a few blocks from the metro and from all the shops and restaurants on King Street. The $18 parking charge is very reasonable.
But there were many things that were mediocre. The breakfast wasn't great,with quality being about on par with a Hampton Inn. Very disappointing. We had trouble regulating the water tempature in the shower, it was very temperamental. They were stingy with toiletries and we had to ask for more shampoo when they didn't leave any for two days in a row. The bed had a nightstand only on one side making it difficult for the other person to read in bed. Thankfully we didn't need to use the sofa bed because it looked really saggy and wasn't even comfortable to sit on. Hotel hair dryers are usually bad but this one was worse than most with a really wide nozzle that made it impossible to direct the air flow. The room generally looked a bit worn. We will probably stay elsewhere next time.
