I'm sitting in my room right now with a smile on my face. I'm not sure if people in general in DC are this friendly or if it's just the staff here at the hotel. Everyone I've encountered so far has such a great attitude.
First off, the hotel provides a free shuttle from the airport. I called the hotel just after I got off the plane and only had to wait about 5 minutes before the shuttle arrived.
I arrived at the hotel well before check-in time and the woman at the front desk tried as hard as she could to get me in to my room as early as she could. I decided it would be easier to check my bag at the front desk rather than rush everyone.
I spent the day seeing the sights and came back to the hotel to finally check-in. Antoine checked me in and it was friendly, quick, and painless.
I dropped my bag in my room, took a quick nap and then went to the hotel restaurant for a bite to eat. William served me and was just wonderful.
Now, during my quick nap I discovered that I could hear trucks making deliveries which I figured would wake me up early in the morning. After dinner I went back to the front desk where Antoine was totally sympathetic and moved me to a quieter room. He even let me check the room before I committed to it.
The sleep number bed seems interesting and was definitely comfortable during my nap. The first room had a wireless remote for the bed while the second room has a wired remote. Another quirky thing was the toilet seat in the first room wouldn't stay up as it was too close to the countertop. This was not a problem in the second room.
I don't come to DC often, but if I return I will definitely stay here again.
