Room is lovely with wood floors and tiles in bathroom and corridors . The furniture is real wood and i loved it. I will definitely stay there again. Location was convenient as I was there for work two blocks away.

2/10 Poor

Not worth the price
I picked this place because of it's location in Georgetown and the pictures they provided in the hotel bio. Those pictures had to have been taken about 15 years ago because the room didn't look exactly as it did in the pictures. I will say had the room been in good condition, it would look like a decent room with a lot of character. Unfortunately the room was run down and in need of refurbishment. All the furniture including the safe was damaged as shown in the pictures. The bathroom had moisture damage on the ceiling as well. The room had beautiful hardwood floors but it was so slippery I could skate on the floor with my bare feet. The room was full of mosquitoes and I had to kill about 3 of them but there were still more. To make matters worse, there was a man that worked in the building making a lot of noise. He loitered in the lobby on the couch all day yelling at some woman on speaker phone. I am not exaggerating when I say this man was on the phone ALL DAY... Must have been some really important conversations because at first it didn't seem like he worked there. They advertised a rooftop lounge area at that top of the building but the security guard that worked their refused to let us go up there saying it was closed. Definitely false advertisement in their hotel ad and you can get something a lot better for the price they charge.
