  • "Excellent Hotel and Service"
    My family and I stayed here for Labor Day weekend and loved the experience. If you're in DC, I highly recommend staying at this hotel, not only for its superb service, but for its location.

    "Excellent "
    Michael - I have not had the pleasure of meeting you in person. I just want to say thank you for arranging the flower delivery to be place in our room to surprise our mother for her birthday. Thank you for providing comfort and reliance when I spoke to you over the phone. What a service! Thank you for taking care of us and making this trip special from the moment we entered our hotel room. The flower arrangements were neatly placed and my mother melted with joy. Thank you for making a lifetime memory, possible. Carroid- (forgive me is I have misspelled your name. But there is only one you either your name manning the Concierge desk). You are one of a kind. Thank you for being you. The attributes that you possess are unique to you. Your welcoming demenour will stay within us. You are very knowledgeable of DC. The way you connect with people to their personalities cannot be taught or studied. Thank you for arranging the best car service to take us to my cousin’s wedding. Thank you for making all the arrangement and making it all seem seamless. You have been so kind to us. Thank you for walking us down the block to show us where to cross to get to the museum strip. Thank you for all the advice and reccomendations. The type of customer service you guarantee is rare, but with you, it’s very apparent to see that you love what you do, and that you give it all because it fulfills you. Thank you, Ashley - for your warmth and comfort when I came down frantically aplogizing that I forgot to take the DND sign off. We bonded through laughter. I was looking for you the next following days so I could spray the perfumes that you complemented me on. One is by Gucci called Rush (it’s a red box, you won’t be able to miss it), and the second one that I mixed is Decadence by Marc Jacobs (the perfume bottle looks like a purse and it’s in teal color). You have been so lovely to us and very relatable. Milkias - hard working angel. Consistent and super sweet and hard working. Engaging. Thank you for recommending Dukem to us when we first arrived. And thank you for convincing us, because I personally was going off of reviews and they were not convincing, but you were, we want and ate really well. Thank you getting us cabs which were super faster that uber. Thank you for making us feel welcome and at home. Thank you for being kind. It’s hard work but you make it seem easy. Thank yous to all of our housekeeping crew that were not only neating and cleaning our room, but connected with us on human-to-human while doing great at their jobs. I am very sorry I forgot your name, but there is only one you with pretty eyes, braids dangling on the said. You have been really sweet to my family and I. With our high maintenance requests for extra towels. I know/and hopefully you know who you are. Stay blessed. Lastly - the lovely T (Takiyon) over at Keith/Kin restaurant (it’s work hotel, fee steps away from the Front Desk to the left). Thank you for being the beautiful person that you are. Your cocktails are consistently delicious and yummy. Thank you for recommending me the pizza joint down the wharf. I was able to get my sister a veggie pizza while she was in bed medicated recovering from cold. Thank you for making my mother feel like the queen she deserves to feel with your charisma, warmth, welcoming and constantly engaging while you catered to others. Thank you for putting in my to-go dinner even if we were cutting it close with timing. I killed the burger and indulged each bite. Thank You for going out of our way for us. It’s evident that you do best that you can because it fuels you to see others happy

    We had an issue with not getting a "partial river view" room. It was rectified and thanks to the work of Magellan, the upcharges for the room change were refunded. I've had excellent experience with Magellan over the years - and some really good hotel deals!
