    Hotel was clean based on what I saw.

    It isn't right to charge for accommodations and then provide a bed like that in room 104. I've been traveling for 20 years and that is perhaps the worst bed I've ever been given; lumpy soft short mattress that is incredibly loud whenever you move. The bed and mattress should be replaced immediately. There was no closet or armoire or hangers of any kind on which to hang clothes. Room was small, but I expected that.

    the staff were very friendly and accommodating. the stay was very pleasant and I would recommend this hotel. Its not in the city centre but its only a 15 minute walk. Value for money is excellent and I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

    i like its location close to Best buy shopping Center at 14th street. i appreciate the inclusion of small Frigo inside the room. it was totally renovated.

    i feel sorry the Wall-mounted AC didn't work during the whole stay in my room number 210. It was too hot inside and no one has done anything. Thank you for telling them to fix it.

    Lovely feel to the hotel, which was undergoing renovation when we stayed. The staff were pleasant and helpful. Consider this hotel if you want a simple experience without the usual luxuries associated with the larger players.

    I 've stayed in the Windsor inn, from the same company.. I´ve stayed only one nigth but the experiencie was very good.. They gave us a good attention.. the hotel was so nice and comfortable..and at the same time cheap.. I really recommend it

    No elevator but no problem for me because it has only 3 o 4 floors

    Good neighbourhood and reasonable price

    Ran out of food at breakfast and would like at least 2 choces of cereal.t.v. too hard to figure out. Leave instructions. If you turned on the box, the t.v. would go off and vice versa.A fan in the bathroom would be good.

    The area is really lovely, lots of restaurants, beautiful town houses, close to everything.

    Good place, nice ambient.

    Extremely small space, quite noisy because of aircon equipment outside the window, furniture well behind its lifetime.

    This is a budget hotel - its fairly clean, centrally located and worth the money.

    Parking is very poor - You can park in teh street outside but watch out for the times, they vary on each side of the road and can be confusing to foreign visitors. I got towed at a cost of $200. This si a budget hotel and breakfast was a pastry and coffee only. Free/fast wifi made up for this though :-) My room was good but quite noisy at the front of the hotel.

    clean

    small subterranean room, no board for clothes, loud air conditioner, only cold shower, TV didn't work

    Well, it is the closest to the city, if you intend to tour Washington DC.The subway or even the Metro is within walking distance. The neighborhood is very pleasant atmosphere. The rooms a bit cosy, but would have nicer if there was a small fridge and a microwave! And off course there is grocery/supermarket nearby and handy if you would like purchase any drinks or fruits. When I checked on Wednesday, the front desk, Delories was very kind enough to give extra 1-2 hours for me refresh up and time to pack my things. The rooms were neat, and the shower units were clean.

    The breakfast is almost the same everyday, with the same doughnuts, and other stuff. And sometimes can be overcrowded. The phone lines were at one time were not working, when someone was trying to contact me.

    The beds were incredibly comfortable. It was a safe and quiet place to stay during our D.C. trip.

    D.C. temperatures were sweltering and there was never any ice available. Some of the staff were less than accommodating to guests' needs - simply somewhat reluctant to help.

    They don't have anywhere to park your car and the sides of the rooms are to small,poor lighting,just a bad place to stay.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Good location for evening dining, locals friendly, and close to Tube system

    Poor bathroom, weak shower, inadequate space. Breafast was good by provided no variety of food. Plastic utensils were poor. Desk staff could be more helpful, Evening sherry offer was not available, though offered through site notice, No Ice available from lounge Ice maker!!
