No Hot Water is a Dealbreaker
My girlfriend and I chose to stay at the Red Lion for our weekend trip to the city for a number of reason. We loved that the location allowed us to easily travel across the city, close to a metro station and within a mile of the National mall.The room was plenty spacious for the 2 of us and was very clean upon our arrival. Sunday morning upon walking back from just completing the Cherry Blossom 10 mile run we lamented on how happy we were with our hotel selection. We enjoyed being just a short walk from the monuments but appreciated the quieter location to of the hotel. Upon returning to the hotel Sunday morning we discovered that there was a problem with the hot water and were forced to take cold showers after completing an early morning 10 mile run. As we left for the day we mentioned to the man working up front about the lack of hot water. We were told that they were aware of the problem and were working on it. Unfortunately when we woke up Monday morning the hot water had not been fixed and we were forced to take cold showers for a second straight day. Overall we loved the hotel and enjoyed the vibe however the two days of cold showers were a deal breaker for us. We will most likely look at a different place to stay for future trips to DC.

Nice but so so loud!
The staff was wonderful From the check in management, to the café staff, to the gentleman cleaning the outside of the hotel. Charity at the main office was awesome. The room was clean. The property was Presentable. However, if you are looking for a restful night sleep, this is not your first choice. We are not prudes and know how to party but The noise is so unbelievably loud. The walls and windows are unbelievably paper-thin. If the noise from the all night cleaners in the streets, the late-night partiers yelling down the street, the car alarms going off all night long do not keep you up, the noisy grinding refrigerator motor will. It is so loud and we were 10 floors up. We could hear the people celebrating next door until 4 am as if they were in our room. Horrible. The room was so hot and the ac wouldn’t work.

The area was great. In the middle of everything and within walking distance. There was noise but when staying in downtown dc I think that’s to be expected. Only complaint was the hidden parking fee that’s inccluded in your bill and not made known til checkout. Also there was some standing water in our shower the last day. Other than that we had a great stay.

Mediocre care (2/4 concierges made me think I was at a fast food restaurant), cleanliness, noise level (partiers, dogs barking in the next room, heavy Street noise, first given a room on the first level with view of boiler room when declining a pricier upgrade. He said you'll have a problem with an upgrade with the four of you. You should upgrade to double Queen. I said I paid for a queen and sofa bed. My kids will sleep on the sofa. Then he gave us an awful room which I had to ask to switch upon inspection. Later that night I heard him say to the other "concierge" we're 2 dollars short of the quota. Location was better than avg. You're given a free cafe drink, but not if one particular barista is working. She will ONLY serve you coffee.
