Safe for the area as it is surrounded by a rod iron fencing around the campus and a manner security station, overall very clean, employees were friendly. Food in Bistro was fresh with a good selection, and staff very accommodating, but a little expensive for the offerings. The grounds were pleasant and spacious. Room was very quiet and could not hear noises in the halls, or from neighbors. It was spacious. The bedding was comfortable and towels thick and felt nice. Great customer service from the front desk as they responded well above and beyond to concern of an item I had left behind with excellent follow through. The room was not stocked appropriately for the number of people staying the in room; the shower needed some repairs on the adjustable bar; totally missing. Made showering awkward to say the least. The price of breakfast was a little high for the area. Should simply build the parking fee structure into the cost of their rooms, given you are certainly not going to park off campus and walk to the hotel.
Price...until it jumped 50% after taxes, fees and parking Staff was exceptionally rude. Eric R. stated I should not have booked through a third party...made it clear that any issues were not his problem as I didn't book directly through hotel. He told me and other guests that if we weren't so cheap we wouldn't have problems with reservation and check in. "Manager" "Vegas" had similar attitude...no customer service whatsoever. This is on a college campus. Parking is $30 in a garage 1/4 mile away from hotel, details not disclosed until check in.
The room was very clean and well kept. The staff h was friendly and courteous. The amenities were getting pretty old. The hotel is in a very bad section of town and was not comforting.
The Refrigerator fit many water bottles? Um, it is difficult to write anything positive about this hotel. Um, don't know where to begin. This hotel is in the middle of no where, next to the railroad. Non-smoking room had a deep, deep cigarette smell. Seemed like someone was smoking in there not too long ago. If it wasn't for me not being able to sleep earlier because of west coast time, you could hear and feel the trains coming and going. The walls are very thin, and you can here anything outside. There are also some people that come by bumping their music so loud, that the room vibrates. This also occurred during the wee hours. So if you are a light sleeper and you want to stay here, good luck. However, this is not the reason why I left. On the first night, I found a bug on the sheets. I wasn't sure if it was a bed bug, because it was the first time I saw that type of bug, so I killed it. While I was sleeping, I woke up because I felt itchy. However, I sometimes get itchy, so I didn't think it was bed bugs yet. After the next night, I woke up and once I was about to leave, I saw a smaller bug on the bed again, so I caught it, but this time when I smashed the bug, blood smeared on the sheets. So, I knew they were bed bugs, and I packed up my stuff, and went to the front desk. I told the manager that I wanted to get a refund for the remaining time there (I had booked for 8 nights). The front desk made it very difficult to receive a refund, and not until my sister yelled at the front desk with a customer waiting did he agree to the refund. He was trying to get us to check out and pay the full amount. So, I spent one day in DC trying to quarantine all my luggage. So if you really have to stay here, you have been warned.
