    Location

    No elevator! I walked up 4 flights! Clients with doors open and walking the halls at all times like a dormitory. Noisy. Street noise/ambulances all night. Hot water not available withour running it for awhile. Mattress was skimpy and not very comfortable. I did not get the room/bed I requested a queen. The desk kept saying it was a queen. When the maids were cleanming the room next door which had a queen it was obvious mine was not!! I could have stayed at a youth hostel for far far less!

    Lift not working, check in computer system not working upon arrival, it takes ages to get hot water in the shower at 4th floor. Water heater presumably in basement.

    Location.

    The shower gave us trouble. The late night staff was a bit uncooperative. The staff did not offer to help us with bags, esp given that their elevator was broken.

    Location

    Room was tiny. Barely enough space to lay down a suitcase. Only thin sheets (no blankets) supplied in the room, so was freezing during the night. Staff members were friendly. Offered to book me a taxi for 7am. But at 7am, after waiting a while I discovered no taxi had been booked.

    I stay 4 night at the Baron Hotel and wish I had paid more to get better service and rest. Upon arrival 12:30 pm, we're told that the rooms weren't ready until after 3 pm. The reception staff was polite but dry not much into suggestions on what to do for 3 hours. My wife and I decided to take a walk in 50 degree temperature to kill time. At 2:30 pm we had enough when back to the baron the receptionist told us that he had a twin bed room, in desperation we agreed to take it. The room was so small it did not have space for our 4 small size suitcases. Beside not having a board and iron to press our cloths, just having to leave the key at the front desk everytime we left the room was a pain in butt. However, our problems began on Friday night. The 2nd floor room to took unknowingly sits over the entrance of the hotel and pub. At 11pm, drunk customers and bar employee would sit outside screaming, laughing, and smoking. We're unable to sleep until 4am in the morning. In numerous occasions I call the front desk to complain but the same guy (Mr. Jimenez Hispanic) would say the same thing over "we have a bar on the first floor" and I can't do anything about it. So, I requested another room or threaten to call the cops and he would take action. And sure enough it would calm down for several minutes, but drunkard are of short memory. Next morning the staff refused to contact the manager. Maybe the other rooms in the back of the building are better, but accept a room over the entrance. The breakfast sucks, by 8:15 am, all three boxes of pastries were empty and nobody to talk to about it. Never saw the manager. In short get that hotel off your website, I have recommended your site to my airline marketing staff and pilots. Thanx. Nikki Colon

    Good

    The attached bar/restaurant was convenient The location (within a block of Dupont Circle) was very good the price, given it was in the District, was very reasonable (I paid $89/night)

    The room was small and barren and the decor felt old and dirty. The facility needs updating (the elevator did not work) and there we limited amenities in the rooms. This truly was a room with a television set and a bed. It met my needs for this trip, but just barely.

    Superb

    The staff is impressively friendly and helpful. One of the best parts for beer lovers is The Bier Baron downstairs (the former Brickskeller)! It is a beer lover's paradise: They have a single-sheet food menu and a BOOK for their beer menu! And the servers there are mind-bogglingly knowledgeable about beer. They encourage you to try tastes of the tap beers and can talk beer esoterica with the baddest beer aficionados! (A shout-out to Jose and Andre!) The hotel rooms are clean and Spartan. It's not a luxury hotel, but who cares, right? The price, if you book WAY in advance, is very reasonable, especially for downtown DC. I highly recommend the Hotel Baron AND the Bier Baron! — John Wilpers
