    Poor 2.0
    WORST EXPERIENCE EVER ! It’s a ghost hotel . UNSAFE. During most of the night time there is none at the reception. The person that should be there is always outside talking on the phone and smoking . This person - that was apparently intoxicated - was very agressive and I felt he was about to hit me for no reason. I HAD TO CALL THE POLICE and move to another hotel on the middle of the night . If you wanna avoid problems: choose another hotel.

    Pleasantly surprised. Nice decor. I’ve heard horror stories of the surrounding hotels. So glad we went with this one.

    Poor 2.0
    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!

    Dorm Rooms
    I booked the dorm option. When I checked in I was told I was staying with someone else. I totally missed that. I was informed for more money I could have a room to myself. I said, I'll try it. The room comes with a towel and hanger. No shampoo, toothpaste, wash rag, or face towel, just a body towel. I made due for the night by buying a few things from Walgreens. Oh.. Because you're staying with random strangers, you can't really relax and kick back in the room, so as not to disturb your roommates. The bed was clean, double-sheeted and I slept fine.

    great place to stay
    My mother and I were just in town visiting family. We had a room with two twin beds. We were kind of nervous about staying at this hotel. We never heard of a hotel called The Generator but our stay was perfect. The staff was very helpful and friendly our room was clean and updated. The bedding was clean and very comfortable. The location was great within walking distance to great restaurants and other attractions. I would def recommend staying at this hotel.

    My New Favorite DC Home
    This newly renovated Connecticut Avenue Jewel is the perfect addition to DuPont Circle. I was smiling and enjoyed premier service from the minute I walked in the door that lasted my entire stay! I am recommending this place to everyone!
