My sister and I traveled to the DC area while she was in Va for a visit! I booked our room on Priceline, easy enough.Wanted to stay outside of the metro DC area. So location was perfect! We arrived on Monday evening as planned check in was quick and smooth. The clerk even requested I put my sisters name on the top of the check in so if she was locked out they could issue her a room key. I was very grateful!
We pretty much dropped our belongings and left for the remainder of the evening.
Tuesday was a busy get up and go day, showered and left. I opted for housekeeping to just come in make our beds, change out our towels, and empty trash. However I did leave a note on my pillow so I knew housekeeping would see it requesting she leave 2 extra towels. **Note here:** ** I had to use the customer in room servery card as there was no pen or paper in the room that you would normally find.**
Note read: Could you please leave 2 extra towels. Thank you and have a wonderful day!!
We returned around 11PM beds had been made note was flipped over and put back on on the desk area...no extra towels where left. The actual condition of the room was not noted fully until the morning of check out. As I said we dropped our things and where off and running! There was urine and "body hair" around the base of the toilet. While warming up left overs from the night before my sister found a dirty plate in the microwave that had been left there from a previous guest. We had not use the microwave up to this point. Luckly we checked out directly after this! However I did snap a few pics with my phone to show the front desk.
Again the clerk was WONDERFUL (different clerk then at check in). She completely understood how unhappy I was and did issue me a partial credit towards the room after seeing the pics. She assured me that management would be informed of our room conditions.
Yes the rooms where nice, they appeared to of been recently updated. No complaints there...it was just the housekeeping.
