comfort vs noise
Having to open the window to allow the room to get cooler was a problem considering the noise outside
David, usBusiness trip
Hotel RL Washington DC, Washington
The rooms were very dated, beds were too soft, we had to call the desk daily if we wanted clean towels. I called & requested them daily for the rest of our stay and was told to tell the housekeeper. I told front desk that I expected them to communicate it to them for me.
