Hotel RL Washington DC by Red Lion, Washington
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.

Hotel need some upkeep
The hotel was overbooked,and told me they had not room for me when I arrived. They said that reservations from third party providers were not as high a priority as those booked through the hotel directly. They were able to accommodate me in a room that had a leak in the ceiling, and gave me a breakfast voucher. The staff were helpful. The room itself was large and had a comfortable bed. It was not possible to adjust the air conditioner, and the room was too cold. The taps in the bathroom dripped, and when I first turned them on, black water came out. It ran clear after that.

DC Getaway
I booked the RL for a couple getaway to see Washington DC. The location of the hotel is great...close to restaurants and all the things to see in Washington. The photos on the website make the rooms look better than they are. This is an old hotel that has been partially redecorated. The bathrooms are small, old and have little practicality. The main room is large but not well laid out. Common areas are very tired and old. It's worth staying at for the location although it can be a little noisy on the weekends with the party, bar scene a couple blocks away.
