Surprisingly Good

Caloundra, Australia

I did my usual search of central Washington hotels and this stood out for its good reviews and lower prices. I was not disappointed. Reception staff were very friendly and accommodating and rooms are large and overlook the pool and distant roundabout. Bathrooms are also very large. There are two metro lines within easy walk and both will take you to/from Ronald Reagan Airport, Breakfast was good and there are several eating opportunities nearby.

Fabulous hotel

Dublin, Ireland

The staff from the moment of check in to departure are all so friendly and helpful regardless of their role. I stay in many hotels and have never had such a universal helpful and friendly response. I would like to mention in particular Sarah, Carlos and Sharda who work in bar / restaurant. Their professional, friendly and helpfulness makes it a lovely and cosy place (especially if sitting beside the fire) to have a drink or meal. I am a coeliac and gf options are now marked on the menu. As a coeliac I am delighted when staff understand the need for caution around cross contamination often speakinb directly to kitchen when placing an order. They ensured that I ate very safely in the hotel. The hotel is in a very central location with easy access to public transport and within walking distance of many attractions. It meets all the expectations of a hotel of that category. I love that it is possible to open a window in the bedroom as fewer hotel rooms have this feature. It is the staff however that makes it a wonderful place to stay in DC and I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else when I am in DC. Thanks to all the team for an enjoyable stay.
