Enjoyed pleasant staff, Cheerful Desk person Gleen let me know that for some reason I had been "upgraded". So I didn't question room 406.
Smaller bedroom with queen bed not on 35th street might have been more quiet. I chose the one of the double beds by the windows instead.
Had noticed the rushing noise of the HVAC, an intrusive white noise. Then sometime in the night woke to the sound of a truck revving and banging and... When the HVAC startsup there's a scraping sound like a vent opening. Then around 4:30 am another truck not just going by but working at something...
Quality Inn is just across the street. Next time I'd ask. Didn't expect 35th to have that kind of traffic street noise; Higher and away might work.
And then! about 8am what sounded like a masonry drill started up in the next room. This construction? noise was off and on. I checked out at 9:30.
The Metro asks that you check out. I'm used to most places these days just leaving...
Instead of the common room coffee maker there is a very nice complimentary continental breakfast area just off the lobby.
I also like the bathroom amenities, these wide mouth attractive travel size bottles that I'll enjoy re-using.
Had a helpful enjoyable conversation with the concierge going in to breakfast.
Rooms were all clean and in top notch shape, good repair. I found the brown, beige maroon subdued, not bright not cheery.
If not for the noise and poor night's sleep, rest; a good experience.
