      Overpriced

      Staff was great! Bathroom was really nice. The room was basic. Parking rates for self parking were wrong. No fridge in the room for personal items, just their concession sale items which is very 1990. Overall nice, but the room was overpriced.

    • 2.0.Poor

      Terrible stayed. Ruin everything

      It’s not a pleasant stay. To spend this amount of money stayed with this kind of service, I felt extremely disappointed. The front desk is not helpful. When I asked the questions, he is not patient and even cannot answer questions that he was supposed to know. While when I checked in, he did not fully explain the hotel services. Most terrible thing is that the room I spent over almost $700 per night is super unclean, spider web in every corner of the room and there’s a huge one on my patio. The cleaning lady might even forget to replace shower gel in the restroom, my boyfriend and I even have to go to the front desk and asked for it. However, this is a very bad experience to stay in a 5-star hotel. I don’t think it’s worth it and it ruins that I was planning to give my boyfriend a perfect birthday celebration.

      The property itself is great. But when we checked in, it didn’t feel welcoming. I’m fully aware that hotels put a hold on accidents but the lady at the front desk did not mention the amount or anything and I would’ve liked a heads up. But overall it was pleasant.

    • 8.0.Very Good

      We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The staff are very well trained and very responsive. The room was quite nice and we had a balcony that overlooked the wharf. Sadly the pool is very small and it was a very crowded party scene. If you like that great, if you can tolerate that, fine, as the view is spectacular

    • 10.0.Exceptional

      Hotel and staff were superb. My only wish was that the shower was a bit larger. It seemed quite small for such a plush and spacious room. The view from the room and rooftop pool was incredible and the area around the hotel, the wharf district, was lively and full of food options. Parking in an unaffiliated garage is possible but difficult to find space during busy times. Valet was $58/day vs $38 to self park. It was worth it, they were lightning fast and had a great system to retrieve your car. Housekeeping staff would text daily to see what services you wanted. All around, 5 stars! We will definitely stay again next time we’re in DC.

      The property is central to everything! Great dining options and so much to do in the area. The rooftop pool view was amazing. Wish the pool was bigger but it was still great. Our check-in seemed a bit rushed even though there wasn't a crowd checking in at the time and the greeting/overall interaction was not as friendly as the other staffers. Overall, our time there was wonderful and I would love to go back.
