The service at Hotel RL is outstanding. I've stayed here twice and on this particular trip the service provided by Manny and Rene stood out. They were both friendly, professional and willing to help in any way to make my stay a positive one.

We stayed at the Hotel RL from 05/06 through 05/11 and found the staff extremely helpful. This was a father son trip to see Washington DC and this hotel could not have worked out better. It is within walking distance to 2 different Metro stations which allowed us to travel all over the city with a weekly Metro pass. Our...

This was our second time to stay at this hotel. We love it. It is centralized and a nice walk to all of the monuments. What really makes this the place to stay is The service. Manny is great and so helpful. Cali is also wonderful and helpful. Hopefully we will get to come back.

Probably the best features are the beds, room size and couch. Unfortunately our shower didn't operate our first evening after a 90 degree day of touring. There was water but just a trickle. Supposedly they fixed it while we were touring the next day but we left without knowing if it was corrected or not. The location is within walking...

Nice hotel. Booking company didn't get me as good a price as I could have gotten thru hotel. So check it out both ways before you commit. Great front desk workers. Parking was very convenient. Restaurants very close and delicious Italian around the corner. Great linens. Will stay here again. Karaoke in lower level. Really great all around

2 couples in our thirties stayed at this hotel in a double room. The air circulation was bad but it wasn't completely their fault. Consider the night temps were in the low thirties and the day temps were reaching eighties. The AC just couldn't work correctly. We also booked this hotel without realizing it's the same hotel we stayed at...

Dear parateal, We appreciate you taking the time to comment on your recent stay. Please accept our apologies for the air. Since we have a two pipe system we cannot switch from air to heat and back on the fly. It takes several hours for the system to get to the correct temperature in order to do this. We do...

Although the room was large, clean and there was a good bed and shower, the facility was not in as good condition as the price would indicate. The service depended on the individual serving. The parking area was very convenient, and cost $40 per night.

Impressed by size of room (given that it was a boutique hotel) and the lack of noise (given that it is located in heart of farragut/foggy bottom). They were great about holding my girlfriend's and my bags after we checked out, and Manny was helpful and friendly in returning them.
