I don't know where to begin, I just knew that i should have checked out immediately and book myself into another hotel in the area. When i first arrived, my room had no electricity, and the lights were off. I thought that it was eco-friendly type of room, but it was not. The desk attendant could not believe that there was no electricity, he moved me to the room next to the one that had no electricity so i asked if the room would have electricity, he reassured that it would be. So i had the lights on, it was on 7th floor, and the hallway reeks of cigarettes. I didnt want to go back down to move into another room and i tried to change the temperature for the Heating/AC center, but it was not working. it was a little cold in the room and i did not like the way how the fan circulates in the room which made it colder. I had figured that a hot shower would help to shake it off, but i had no HOT WATER running! i had to turn it off a couple of times because i could not bear any more of running cold water. Actually, the only time that it was warmer is when i was in my car with heating on, and I couldn't wait to get out of there. Otherwise, the location is right by the marketplace, Starbucks, and it was easier to walk to the shops that i could grab what i had needed before my meetings. I would definitely recommend to those who can stay in this area during the summer time where the AC is most fitting for. OR needed a place where they can short for a short period of time. I was in the town for meeting and this is the best i could find in the area of Chevy Chase.
