If only they'd invest some money into this property, into its upkeep, we would gladly stay there again. The major problem with our room was the ancient mattress. The previous reviewer said that the furnishings seemed newer, so maybe they ARE in the process of renovating, but some of our furniture had seen better days.We agreed that our bed was very uncomfortable & wobbled like a water bed whenever one of us moved around. We didn't sleep at all the first couple of nights. Then I moved to the sofa sleeper & slept better. This was actually the 2nd room we'd been assigned. In the 1st room, I had set down my cooler full of groceries on the dining room table, & it came crashing down. The top of the table was broken & if you set anything down on it, it tilted upwards. So they moved us into a different room. I had mentioned that my eggs had broke from the fall but they could've cared less & made no move to compensate us.
What's right about this place is the kitchen & bathroom, even though the floors look shabby & the spaciousness of the room is a big plus. Unfortunately, our tv went on the fritz & they had to replace that too. Front desk service was rude & terse, the young lady there actually lost her patience with me , spazzing out when I requested help with getting a taxi ("whatEVER you want!" rolls eyes...).
So, you get what you pay for. This place is all about the great location. It's convenient to everything. But this place didn't work for us. Too bad, since my husband & I have to travel to Arlington frequently. Maybe it'd be good for college kids on a bender or perhaps single business people who like hard beds!
