May 17, 2005 - booked single room at $155 and got a $49 motor court type room in exchange. The room was very small (described on web site as "European style") with poor lighting, paint peeling off walls and ceiling (roof water damage no doubt), unstable water temperature -repeating scalding hot to freezing cold temperature cycles, and unusable wireless Internet access. (Hotel even supplied a test receiver that was no better than my wireless card.) There was a slight wireless signal throughout the hotel area, but not enough signal to maintain connection. The courtyard and lobby look fine, but I'd ask to see your room before staying here. Black's Restaurant behind hotel is a good spot for lunch or dinner. Hotel is about 2 blocks from Metro station for easy DC area travel.
