    Fair 4.0
    I wish I could give this place a good review as I've stayed at Kimpton Hotels in the past and was very happy with my stay. Unfortunately, I could not say the same for here. The A/C did not work the first night. We arrived in the evening so they had no one on-site to fix it and they were fully booked so they couldn't move us to another room. The thermostat read 77 degrees and if you've ever been to DC before, you can bet it was SUPER humid in our room. We were on vacation. It was incredibly uncomfortable and all they could do was give us a fan and comp our "amenities" fees for our stay. Then on our 2nd night, we arrived back at our room at around 7pm and the room wasn't turned down; I had to call to ask them to come turn it down. In addition, they didn't have any water or snack/beverage bar set up for 2 days. So when it showed up suddenly we thought it was a complimentary gift for our inconveniences, but it wasn't (I called the front desk to verify). The lobby & elevators were dirty and did not look maintained at all for the 4 days we were there. We also happened to be on the floor where the public restrooms were for employees so every time we would get off the elevator or come from the stairwell, it would smell either like strong air freshener or absolutely terribly. Really like Kimpton Hotels and this was unfortunately disappointing. Wish there was more they could've done to make it a more pleasant stay. On a positive note, the location was great & staff was friendly

    Very nice room - cool showers and large TV - but the hotel is under construction and there is not a restaurant, just rooftop bar. I did ask for a coffee machine but it was never brought up. I also asked for a receipt to be emailed to me because their printer was broken which was never emailed even after I followed up with an email.

    Good room, bad carpets
    Room was spacious and quiet. Good bathtub and blackout curtains. Carpet was torn up and heavily stained, which made me never want to step on the carpets! Also the weird futuristic shower is like crawling into a snail shell to rinse off.
