You get what you pay for

Pros: Only half a mile from Byward Market.
Cons: Strengthen the wireless connection and password protect the network. Get rid of the rugs to hopefully get rid of the musty smell. washcloths please!
When I booked this hotel thought it was the same hotel my husband and I had stayed in a year earlier. Sadly, it wasn't. I booked two rooms, check in time was 3pm and my friend and I arrived around 4:15. One of our rooms was not ready. The four of us went to the room that was ready to wait for their room to be cleaned. Upon entering room 241 we were assailed with a strong musty odor and a stifling warmth. We cranked the wall air conditioning unit and the temperature didn't drop the whole weekend. My friends ended up getting room 238, which appeared to have Ben remodeled as it had nice hardwood floors. Neither roo had hand towels or washcloths. We called housekeeping and they brought us another bath rug and bath towel. So, no washcloths all weekend. The wifi was free and NOT password protected. While in room 238 we had decent connection who wants to do anything on an unsecured network? Room 241 had crappy connection with frequent drops and staggeringly slow speeds when connected. I suspect the cleaning staff lived there and there were young children running, yelling up and down the halls. The rooms were clean, the bathrooms tiny but clean. I suspect the rug in my room was the source of the musty smell. The staff at the front desk was friendly. However the delay in getting both our rooms after a 4 hour drive, never getting washcloths and the poor, unsecure wifi made this a disappointing experience.
