We had an inconvenience with the room assigned to us, but the staff was willing to help us and they fixed the situation. About the pool, We didn't like the way the serve the drinks and we would have liked more music on that area.

Scheduled a trip to attend conference at hotel. Though made a reservation they were all out of rooms. Got shifted to a Ramada Inn first night.

Missed nearly one half day waiting on a room. They processed my payment and then told me to wait thirty more minutes for a room, missing my conference in meantime.

A manager never offered to speak to me or provide some apology or adjustment to my bill. Missed part of my conference dealing with this fiasco.

Do yourself a favor and stay at a Marriott or other major reputable hotel chain. The level of professional service is terrible!

This hotel has a great location. It is very near a Metro stop, restaurants & a large grocery store. The public areas are spacious.
However, it is extremely loud. The hallways are tiled & don't have any insulation. Voices are amplified.
The room was large but not a lot of places to sit. There is no clock, coffee pot or refrigerator in the room.
We arrived with a small group around midnight & they hadn't keyed any of our rooms. We had to go back to reception to have this done.
Our toilet leaked but we did not report as we thought the maid would take care of it. This hotel is fine for tour groups but I would not book it as an individual.

I think I could be at peace with having received the room very late and that when I got to that room, there were still people there. I could also forget that they constantly forgot to put indispensable things in the room: floor towel, bottled water, et cetera; but I can not ignore the fact that they offer a free shuttle bus service to the airport, which I myself requested on time, making sure that the person in charge wrote my correct name, room number and of course the time of departure ( 9:00 am), and I also made sure to arrive promptly, but there was no one there, so after waiting 20 minutes I asked an employee, who called the person in charge of that service to know what happened. Her response was, "I thought she remembered me," but that "she thought the exit to the airport was at 12:00." She thought, "What are the records that they carry?"
Then the employee simply left without apology or explanation and when I came back to ask him, he told me that "she (the shuttle bus manager) might call him back, that if I was going to be outside he would tell me if she solved anything? wait??? Can anyone expect to have a scheduled flight ???
If that seems a little, when I returned to my country, I wrote an email to them, saying all this ... yes, they did it right !! To date I have not been answered ... think twice about hiring this hotel
