The lobby was very nice. The staff were *VERY* nice, professional, pleasant, and helpful. The breakfast buffet was good. The room was clean and the A/C worked very well.
The parking garage had ample problem and was located right next to the hotel.
the pool, hot tub, and gym were all really nice. The business center was fantastic and folks were helpful!
the needs work:
We had requested a crib and mini fridge in advance upon booking online reservation. I called the day before check in, and the receptionist said it wasn't listed, but she made some notes and would ensure that it would be in our room once we checked in. I advised her we would be checking in late. We checked in around 10pm. No crib or fridge. Had to call to have it brought up. Took over an hour. Not cool to wrangle a screaming crying baby who just wants to go to bed at 11 pm for an hour.
the two bed room is two full beds, not two queens like most hotels. The pillows were small and squishy, not very comfortable.
the a/c was wonderfully cold, but very very loud.
The lobby has a small cafe restaurant in the back. Breakfast was good (both selection and taste quality), but their lunch and dinner menus were severely limited. A handful of sandwiches and salads. Every morning there was a huge mound of pizza boxes next to the hall trash can. Kinda lets me know i wasn't the only one who was let down by the in-hotel restaurant for dinner.
I would recommend this hotel for business or solo. Not for family. its about 3 miles from the king street metro station (a $12 cab ride). Parking for the garage is a fee per day, but government/military rate includes free parking and a discounted meal rate.
