I never write reviews but I feel propelled to alert fellow travelers to DC about this hotel.||||Be aware of the valet parking. The hotel outsources it and there’s a disconnect with the front desk. We arrived late in the evening and valet was already gone. Front desk told us that we could leave the car in the driveway and not to worry about the time to move it in the morning- just come downstairs whenever we are up and ready. ||||The next morning we were confronted by someone who claimed to be “the head of security of the hotel”. We explained that we were given different info last night. Instead of trying to clarify the misunderstanding, he insisted that we were transpassing the property if we didn’t pay up. He also denied our request to speak with the hotel manager and said “I represent the hotel.” My husband got into an argument with him, and he called the police and asked us to leave. He also said that we will have to pay for the other two nights even though we were removed involuntarily. I had to contact the third party site where I made the booking and spent my vacation working on this in order to get my money back.||||We emailed and called the hotel’s HQ office and so far got no response. The place feels like run by mafia and offers absolutely no customer service. How ironic that it’s a hospitality business.||||Save your time and energy to stay another hotel. There are plenty of great options in DC.

The building is quite unique. However, going thru front door, down long walkway and then down a flight for check-in was awkward. The shower was like a fire hydrant and acted like an alarm clock! Very thin walls. Wall lamp is hungover one side of bed and switch is on other. All light switches were hard to find in dark and clumsy to use. Beds were comfy but rug’s corner was curled up where duck tape failed to hold it to the floor. The “no cash” policy is absurd.
