We have stayed at The Virginia for several years but I do not think we will be returning. We love the location and the fact that they have valet parking and that the Ebbitt Room is right at the hotel. However, their breakfast is average and has limited choices and they allow small children from other hotels to dine on the deck. One of the perks we like is that they only allow children 12 and over. One of the reasons why is that we could not even enjoy our breakfast with the two screaming kids on Sunday morning. Perhaps the 12 and over policy can also apply to breakfast, as this is not the first time we have had to sip our coffee listening to rowdy children.
The biggest disappointment was the room. We got the petite room for the second time. Last year, we enjoyed our room. We were on the 3rd floor. This year, we were in the petite room on the 2nd floor and were very disappointed. The bathroom door did not close and the bathroom did not have place to hang a hand towel, other than on the hook on the back of the door. There was absolutely no place to put your toiletries. We are not big people and could hardly move around in the bathroom. We got water in a carafe only one of the three nights we stayed, but my brother in law, in the next room, had fresh water each afternoon.
Finally, the tables on the deck could have used some Windex, as they were pretty dirty and there was a glass from the bar on the bottom of one of the little tables when we sat down for breakfast. I hate to sound nit-picky, but for the money we paid (over $425/night), I expect the best of everything and feel we did not get it this time. It's just not worth the money and there are other options available which we will explore next summer.
