Hotel RL Washington DC, Washington
I reserved a king size bed and they put me in a room with a double. When I pointed out the bed size, the woman at the desk told me I was upgraded to a better room. But the bed was still only a double and not a king. Other wise it was fine.

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.
