The hotel is a bit worn and at the edge of the Tenderloin, but it's clean and the staff was friendly. There's free coffee in the lobby to get you out the door in the morning. Don't expect anything too awesome from this hotel but it will give you a decent room and a good night's sleep.

Decent hotel and service. My room rate came with breakfast and the food was pretty good, especially the croissants. No complaints about the room itself. The location is pretty remote unless you have a car or are attending an event at Bologna Fiere. The train station is a 35-minute walk away, and the city center is about 45 minutes or a 15 euro cab ride. Nearby dining options are limited, the nearest good restaurant is Piccola Trattoria which a 15-minute walk down the shoulder of a busy road.

This is a great place to stop for a meal or just a drink. My wife and I really love Seasons 52 because the food is flavorful, fresh, light, and healthy. The service is also consistently good. If you like this place get on their mailing list and you'll get coupons on a pretty regular basis.

If someone else is paying, I would rate this 4 stars. If you're paying I would say it's good French cuisine at an extremely high price, so 3 stars. We were lucky that we had received a gift certificate for the meal, but even so I wouldn't rate this at the top of our French dining experiences. The restaurant is out in the boonies of Great Falls. Don't think of having a few glasses of wine and then trying to navigate your way out of here on the narrow roads filled by darting deer. We dined outside on their patio in the first (5:15pm) seating. The night was wonderful which added to the ambiance, I definitely recommend it if the weather allows. Initial service was slow, it took more than 45 minutes after being seated for us to be served our selected wine. After that the service was good but not exceptional. The breads, salad, small asparagus soup, and pre-main-course sorbet were all good, with the breads being especially tasty. The appetizers were notable as well, I had an apple and cheese tart that was very well done. Conversely, the main courses were somewhat disappointing. My seafood medley was well done but not that flavorful. We both agreed that my wife's duck was not very good compared to the duck dishes we've tasted in the past. Perhaps some of the problem is that the menu offers about a dozen choices for the main courses and I'm not sure the kitchen can handle both wide selection and great quality. To finish off the evening on a high note, the dessert souffles were awesome. We had the chocolate and hazelnut ones. On a beautiful evening I would love to come here just for coffee and dessert on the patio, but I'm not sure that's possible. At about $80 to $90 for each combination of appetizer and main course, plus the cost of dessert, coffee, and drinks, this is a very expensive place for a merely respectable French repas. We actually came in a bit low at $240 for two people, but decided to leave the rest of our $300 gift certificate as a tip rather than save it for a return trip.

Typically tiny NYC rooms with barely enough space to turn around, but who spends time in their room? Location is an easy walk for anything downtown, and you are two blocks from the Subway for access to everything else. The two elevators were a bit slow, you might want to stay on the lower floors and use the stairs when possible. Our rate came with a tasty breakfast and the woman in the restaurant was a gem who can also dish out tourist advice if you need it.

This first-generation Residence Inn is designed around cottage-style buildings rather than the typical hotel hallways. It helps the rooms be a little more private and quiet since there is a little less noise from other guests. The location is just off Route 7 but far enough removed that there is no traffic noise. Still, it's easy walking distance to the new Silver Line (Spring Hill Station) if you want to get into Washington DC. Although this particular property is a bit old, it is clean and well maintained. When we checked in on Saturday evening, the clerk was friendly and welcoming. Brunch on Sunday was crazy. The free breakfast is served until 9:30am. We arrived around 8:45 and they were all out of hot food except for oatmeal. A few things were replenished eventually but in talking with the help I got the feeling that this was pretty normal for a weekend.

Arrived on a Thursday on a high note, was given a free Texas craft beer. The clerk at the front desk got halfway through checking me in and decided to answer the phone, leaving me sitting for several minutes. Another clerk finally realized and finished the job. To get to the room I walked down a drab crooked hallway to what looked like a service elevator, but I was in the right place. The room was clean and well laid out. The hotel is quiet, it's on a relatively busy street but I didn't hear any objectionable street noise. Shower controls are confusing enough that they put a hang tag on the shower door. Even with instructions, it takes a while for hot water to arrive and in the meantime you've no doubt tried adjusting the controls thinking you did it wrong. The minibar has a really annoying bright light which you will notice once you're ready to sleep. There is no switch on the outside that I could find. I didn't receive a minibar key so I couldn't search for an inside switch, which the clerk assured me exists somewhere near the light. For breakfast the next day, I went down and got a small coffee and muffin. Not a good value at $8.66, but there is very little else nearby. I should have waited until I got to the airport, the same thing there is half the price. Room prices are also a bit on the high side for the value, but again there isn't much competition in the area. SMU is across the street so it's really convenient if you're headed there.
