Old building which has passed its prime.
Posted Aug 29, 2016
We booked this hotel strictly on price and did not know what to expect. We know there are older hotel properties in and around Washington, D.C. and those are the ones where there are "bargains" compared to downtown. The Virginian is clearly an old apartment building which has been :refurbished". But fresh paint, carpeting, and some new furnishings can't hide the scratches on the elevator woodwork, the deteriorating caulk in the bathrooms, and the noisy old through the wall HVAC units. The room was "clean" enough, but bad caulk in a bathroom just does not inspire confidence. The "new" furnishings were not particularly comfortable.
