    Our Welcome Home
    We were both returning from Kuwait, me as a contractor and him as active duty Army. Our stay was impressive and amazing. DC autumn weather was gorgeous and colorful, just what we needed after the drab, flat desert landscape. We decided that we wanted to switch to a tub and the front desk suggested us a room with an amazing soaking tub, but no view. We preferred the marina view and they accommodated us with the upgrade. We had issues with the light above the headboard and hotel personnel were not able to resolve the issue. This was 1am and we were exhausted. We were allowed to sleep in the room next door. In the morning the glitch was reprogrammed and resolved.

    Great Hotel
    Room was very clean. Upgraded to a bigger bathroom with soaking tub which was a plus. Service was exceptional and staff went above and beyond tending to my needs. Only issue would be to resolve the tv’s not working. Image resolution would often go in/out and streaming from a device sometimes didn’t work either.

    The Warf
    My stay was nice and the property was well maintained. The location at the Warf is festive. I appreciate that the common surfaces like the door knobs, telephone, and remote control were all covered. The only issue is I did not get to experience the amenities due to COVID, but looking forward to going back when fully open.
