    With some of the mixed reviews about this hotel, I wasn't sure what to expect. What I found was an older hotel with a clean, comfortable room. The bathroom had been rennovated though the rug was still tired. The staff were very helpful, and the location is great.

    If you are looking for a modern hotel with style, this is not for you. I got the last available room online and was stuck with a smoking room, which was ok but not great.

    Perfect

    Stephen the concierge was terrific; very helpful and friendly. We loved the location. The best part of our room was the bay window, a feature you rarely see these days in hotels. It helped make the room bright and sunny.

    Only one elevator was working, and it was slow.

    Perfect

    manageable size; friendly, efficient staff; convenience to downtown theatre, shopping, restaurants, nightlife

    parking is not quite as convenient as would be ideal.

    Great

    The location was perfect for our purposes: attending the Army - Navy football game and visiting with friends.

    The furniture was tattered, the bed clothes thread-bare, and the other fixtures showed their age.

    We love the proximity to downtown. The ease of access to the historic points of interest and the ease of shopping.

    We requested a view ofthe square which is possible from the 13th or 14th floor room 07, however we could only get the 9th floor which couldn't quite make it. Also, the bed was terriblel. It sloped to the left and I kept sliding off. Needless to say I didn't get much rest.

    It was cheap.

    Housekeeping was a problem, especially when they knocked on our door at 8:30 AM. The day before they never came.

    Very good

    Friendly, courteous, and helpful staff. Nice room size. Location near all city and historical sites (easy and safe to walk everywhere). When I booked, no non-smoking rooms were available. The smoking room I got was adequate (i.e. minimal, if any, smoke smell).

    I'd called the hotel directly and requested a refrigerator in the room. It was promised, but when I arrived, none was available.

    Very good

    The hotel has some renovation going on but we were there on the weekend so construction noise wasn't a problem. The room was nicely decorated and had ample windows for the sun to lighten the areas.

    The bathroom really needs a facelift. One window did not close completely so it allowed street noise - and 17th street is busy all night!
