Checked in at 10 pm to get a king smoking room. When we realized the phone did not work, there were no ashtrays, and two of the lights did not work, we called the front desk. She told us it was easier to move us than to correct the problems, so she came up with different room keys and put us in another room. We unpacked (AGAIN) and left for dinner, back around 11pm. Though bed was made up, the carpet had not been vacuumed, and ashes and bits of cellophane were on the carpet. Too tired to complain about this at 11pm, we decided to take a shower and go to bed. THEN, we went in bathroom, and urine stains were all over the toilet AND the floor, as well as pubic hair. That was it, we packed up again, left, and by midnight were driving around Alexandria looking for another room for the weekend. We settled for the Hampton Inn, a lovely place! Incidentally, we booked the Radisson through Hotwire, who claims it is a 3-star hotel. Don't believe it.
