We had a great stay

This hotel was perfect for the price point. The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. The staff was extremely nice and accommodating. Every time we bought something from the lobby, they remembered our room number. The pool area was super simple, but we weren't there for that. Great neighborhood. Would definitely stay again.

Comfortable beds, clean, quiet. Location in the center of the city

The hotel was different from what I’m used to staying in, but it was a pleasant experience.

Great friendly staff. However, I booked at this particular property because the website said there would be a bar and a swimming pool open. Neither of these were true. Bar won't even be open until after July. If I would've known this I wouldn't have stayed at this property

So as a customer who chose a dormitory style room I’m aware of people of all genders nationalities backgrounds and origins would be in the room, but what they did not tell me is that I would be housed with a DOG! Now, I have a pending misdemeanor charge, no place to stay, and still haven’t been to sleep due to the fact that I had to go to jail. After waking up to a Dog whimpering for I’m not sure what reasons, I was advise by the Dogs owner that I get a new room.I’m allergic to Dog dander and was already sleep in the the room...Orbitz has also been unhelpful in rearranging my sleep and hung up on me 7 times!

I didn’t enjoy staying in this hotel it’s annoying and not clean

I checked in. Went to the room and it was not okay. Went to the bathroom and it was nasty with someone’s hair everywhere. I immediately checked right back out!!! Never again!!!!

For the price and accommodations, you can't do better in DC. I stayed in the room with the king sized bed, so I can't speak to the shared quarters option. There are some renovations going on in the building, but who comes to DC and hangs around their room during the day?

Good location! Great staff! Still under renovation.

The renovations are taking a toll on the place. Staff are confused, bums are handing out inside the door way as there are no staff. Breakfast is served in a small room with little more options than a regular hotel has in your own room. The building has thin walls, noises from all sides at all hours, including a deep groan from the elevator system no matter where you are. Not a great experience.

Excellent stay even though they were doing rennovations. Very nice staff, clean simple stay.

Great location and within walking distant to everything.

Nice rooms,good location,fr iendly staff.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I would have liked to have water bottles and tea bags in the room and newspapers available.

Got us what we needed. Very positive. Good breakfast if it is included; pricey, if not.

I am sorry to hear that the Website was not proprly updated. Due to COVID the opening on the Pool and the Cafe/Bar was delayed. We will notify EXPEDIA so that these are accurate, Perhaps you will give us another chance to visit in the late Summer to enjoy these ammenaties. We do thank you for staying with us and are glad the staff was up to our standards and appreciate your kind words.
