    Pros: affordable parking, easy and friendly staff, nice common areas, and good location Cons: annoyingly slow Internet, bad water pressure in the showers, toilet paper was always gone, and bed sheets need to be renewed.

    Hi AngelesDaniela, when I stayed at DC Lofty I paid a portion with cash and another with credit card. Thus, I think you should be able to do so. Give them a call anyway, the staff is very friendly. Good luck.
