Manager is not good for his word

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 11, 2014

We stayed at the hotel for four nights. Paid over $160 for the car to be parked. My husband Is very particular about his car, keeps it in the garage, etc. No scratches. When the bell hop picked up the car for us at the end of the trip he kept trying to get as close to the cement edge of the driveway at the front door as possible. When I went outside I went around the driver's side to open the door and saw that the hubcap was stuck against the cement. When my husband came out I told him, he got in the car, pulled it straight back and could hear the scraping noise. He then decided to complain to the manager. The bellhop said he didn't do it, but I saw it myself. After much discussion with the manager Jose we were told they would submit the claim to their insurance company. His exact words were "we are responsible for the damage." Needless to say after not hearing from him for two weeks (he said four or five days) we called. Sometimes he would return the call, sometimes not. Kept saying I'll take care of it. It is now almost two months, he doesn't call back, doesn't answer his calls. The price to fix the hubcap is about $160. I guess they don't care about the bad press.

For The Feel of an English Country House...

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 11, 2004

The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.

When Allan and I stayed in Washington, we stayed at the lovely Henley Park Hotel, an English manor-style building that is part of the National Historic Trust. Its decor is inspired by British aristocracy, & its location is directly across the street from the Cato Institute (think tank). Once we arrived, I realized that one of my ex-students worked at the Cato, so I paid him a surprise visit. He edits and writes books; he gave me one of his books, autographed. I was thrilled, & so we took him out to dinner that night.

The hotel was built in 1918 & retains most of its Tudor-style features that include a lobby with an exquisite ceiling, archways, & elegant leaded windows.

Although the rooms & bathrooms are not huge, they are more than adequate
Two-line speaker phone with data port, minibar, hair dryer, safe, coffeemaker, turn-down service,& robes are in the rooms.

The hotel is close to the Washington Convention Center, the Smithsonian museums, and the MCI Sports Arena

There are 96 rooms & 17 suites. They do have parking, but there is a stiff fee.

We loved it at The Henley Park Hotel & felt that the service was extraordinary.

Unique Quality: What I enjoyed so much about Henley Park was its intimate style.

It has 119 gargoyles on its facade, and we were told that it was originally an apartment house.

It has a popular restaurant, a bar, and a parlor that recently received facelifts. All the guest rooms have gone through recent renovation that included new wallpaper and linens.

It's quite a romantic place with its English country house mode (Hepplewhite, Chippendale, and Queen Anne) style furniture and period beds.

On Tuesday-Thursday evenings, there is a pianist, and on weekends they have live jazz and dancing.
Critically acclaimed Couer De Lion Restaurant, Marley's Lounge with nightly entertainment, and Wilkes Room for afternoon tea.

One of the most delightful extras is the afternoon tea served daily from 4-6 pm.
Oh, yes, they have complimentary weekday-morning sedan service to downtown & Capitol Hill.
