I booked this room because I had to be close to the DC area for work. I've been to several hotels in the area ans this is the worst hotel I've stayed in the DC area. Thank goodness I was only here for one night. When I first walked into the front desk I was surprised that there was bullet proof glass between the customers and the employees. Uhh..okay. Then I read a notice posted that said something to the effect of "Do not give information to anyone calling you in the room asking for personal information." So I thought..."so this is a reoccuring incident? Strangers calling guests on their room phone to scam them?" Alright...so I check in to my room. It was night time, didn't feel safe. As soon as I open the door the room just reeked of SMOKE. It smelled like someone has been smoking in this room. It was like walking into a casino but worse. This was worse because it was in a confined space, no ventilation, nowhere for the smell to go. This was in room 225. Lastly, there's a constant tapping sound. I don't know where it's coming from. I was on call so I wasn't planning on getting a restful night's sleep anyway and it was one night. if you're planning to stay here for a vacation or for more than a night, I would look somewhere else. Oh, and one last thing, the internet keeps logging me out. I'll be doing something online and all of a sudden the signal would go away and I would have to log back on with the password. I bought this room on a third party website for cheaper than their advertised price. I booked at a website that didn't show me the name of the hotel until after I booked. But if you're thinking of this place....just do little more reasearch on tripadvisor or stay just a few miles out on the beltway.
