Smelly situation!

Pros: The location!
Cons: Part of the hotel was a prison at one time so that may be where the smell came from.
Location: Lots of nice hotels, VA Wharf with great restaurants & shops.
Staff friendly & helpful. The room is nice size but there was a smell hard to describe which got worse when they painted or sprayed for bugs( not that I saw any). Even with the windows open. Great location. Close to VA Wharf which has great restaurants & shopping.
