"Adventure in D.C"
Jon Johnson who worked at the concierge desk was very helpful and knowledgeable of the area. Staff was friendly and gave good recommendations on places to eat. Decent location to reach monuments. Rooms were well supplied to everyday needs.
It was a nice place to stay and the staff( John, Quatina, Fatima, and others) was helpful for getting tickets to local attractions. The staff was also helpful for getting directions and getting things for the room. The hotel was close to the subway, which was handy for getting around the area. We had nice room and the air conditioning could get really cold.
"Fantastic friendly service, great location, comfortable rooms"
Travelling as a family of 5 with 3 young kids, we were warmly welcomed and made to feel special from the moment we arrived. Nothing was too much trouble for staff. The room was clean, comfortable and the location of the hotel was perfect for seeing the sights. The bar was great to retire to in the evenings, and catered to us and the kids - great for relaxing after sightseeing during the day.
"Dated hotel with very outdated HVAC systen"
We stayed for one night at this hotel and were sadly disappointed. The location is great. The service was good-especially Roy from the front desk. But I could not sleep-the in room ac frequently and loudly cycles on and off, waking me repeatedly during the night. There is apparently no ac in the hallways or lobby which I found extremely uncomfortable. The decor is outdated and the sheets, which reeked of bleach, were torn. The room was large. I would not return unless I heard of an HVAC renovation. The only bright spot was the well equipped and well air conditioned fitness room.
"Expected More from Starwood Luxury Collection"
Highlight of this hotel were the staff and the location. The front desk staff and the bartender were awesome - cheery, super helpful and engaging. They made the stay very pleasant. The location is great - centrally located and lots of restaurants right around the corner. I found it very convenient. I will say that only one person was manning the front desk, and we were lucky to be the first in line. As we were checking in, a line grew behind us. While our front desk person was patient and helpful, I couldn't help but think how annoyed I would be if I was one of the people waiting to check in or check out. Again, lucky for us, we were at the top of the line. The hotel was clean, but I wasn't impressed by the condition of the rooms. I didn't feel like I was in a 4-star hotel that deserved to be in Starwood Luxury Collection. Very little about the hotel seemed luxurious to me. Beyond that, however, two things bothered me. We came in at 1:30am one night and the front desk and the entire lobby area was unattended. The front doors are not locked, so you don't need a hotel key to gain access to the lobby, and also don't need a hotel key to take the elevator to guest floors. That left me feeling uncomfortable. I would expect a city hotel, and in particular on Embassy Row, to have better security. Second, I left my do not disturb sign on my door before heading out to dinner. I had not secured my valuables and had personal items strewn about the room. For this reason, I did not want anyone entering the room for turn-down service. Imagine my surprise when I came back to find that the room was serviced while I was at dinner - curtains drawn, bed prepared. I thought it odd that housekeeping would enter despite a do not disturb sign (which was still hanging on the outside of the door when I returned from dinner).
