loved it!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 10 July 2021
Generator was a really cool place to stay as a hostel traveler because it is more of a hotel, but still has dorm options. The lobby is super comfortable & I was able to spend time alone, as well as make new friends. Sitting next to & swimming in the pool felt amazing! That was probably my favorite part about the place. The staff was super nice, too! The only thing I would note is that the bar & full cafe are not open.

I was in town for the day and this was the perfect place to nap and shower. The staff was great, and accommodating, which made the fact that the pool was closed, and there was no onsite breakfast more palatable. The dorms have solid wood and metal bins that you can put you personal belongings in. Bring a lock though! Bit if you forget, they sell them at the front desk.

We were looking for a place to stay in DC that was dog-friendly, and the Generator turned out to be a great place. Our room was lovely and had enough space for a small to mid-sized dog. The location was fantastic with so much within walking distance. The staff were very nice and approachable. Would definitely come back again!

Receptionists don't treat customers fairly. Very bad service. I tried to ask questions about my receipt and why I was charged this amount but they stated to ignore me. I felt that Generator hotel is a scam business.

Since I just stayed for one night, I have to base my review on one night only.\The room was very quiet with a clean and comfortable bed. There was a great view from the room, also the staff went out of their way to help me when needed.

I would give it a five star, however there was no coffee maker in the room, which surprised me, since I'm used to having my first cup of coffee in bed . The bar and restaurant were closed at the time. However there are beer, wine and some snack food to buy.

Centrally located I would stay there again. I also highly recommend this hotel.

Room tip: For best view pick floor 9.

My stay was due to an emergency and the hotel staff was extremely accommodating. The room and facility was extra clean, great amenities, and the proximity to restaurants and retail was fantastic. I would highly recommend this boutique hotel to anyone visiting the area.
