Decor and room were beautiful.
There was street construction all night, starting at midnight until the next morning when. We checked out. We called for earplugs but the hotel didn’t offer. We barely slept and when I spoke to the manager he had nothing to offer further than an apology for our disturbance. The restaurant has a good view. The food was just ok.
JDV has seen better days
It's in a good location.
Hotel is old and well-worn - in desperate need of a rehab. Despite the Joie de Vivre name, the desk clerk on our arrival was decidedly not happy. We booked a two-bed room and got a king with a too-short foldaway cot, and on one of the coldest days of the year they did not have any spare blankets, so we were given three sheets instead. For $80 a night it would have been ok - for twice that, it was a ripoff.
Needed more pillows; they ran out!
This hotel has a great location and friendly staff. It has a nice, old-fashioned feel which gives it a romantic quality for the price. The decor and furniture are attractive and classic, albeit a bit shabby when examined closely. We were particularly impressed with the bathroom in our corner room,which was filled with marble tiles and a towel warmer. Everything was clean and pleasant. The bar/restaurant attached is a nice place for cocktails as well, especially as a warm-up for a night out in the wonderful area of Mt. Vernon. This neighborhood is desirable for those from out of town, and this hotel provided good prices and an overall pleasant stay.
Parking can be an issue; they have valet service (for between $20-$35) that I recommend to anyone not familiar with the neighborhood (we had lived around the corner years before, so knew how to find good parking sports). Additionally, we were staying during an extremely cold (below average temperatures) weekend, and found everything to be a little chilly. On top, we found that the bed was made with only three small pillows and a thin blanket (fine for one person, but there were two of us). When we asked for an extra blanket and pillows later that night, the front desk sadly informed us that they had run out due to a high demand of requests. While they were very sorry, it does seem strange that they had dressed the bed in so few pillows and blankets to begin with, though I understand the need to go for a more minimalist approach in order to conserve energy, etc (and do respect that).
Horrible customer service! Tons of attitude and talking back. I stayed there for 5 nights, and my room wasn't cleaned at all 2 days out of those. The front desk lady told me in the end of the day that it wasn't her job to clean, that all the cleaning stuff was out for the day, and that there was no manager I could talk to on premises. She told me to just suck it up and wait till the next day (I am not exaggerating !). When I asked her if cleaning services were supposed to be included in my daily room charges, she said yes. Then there was the ongoing issue with them not replenishing toiletries at all even so that was also included in the daily room charges. All and all, this could of been a great hotel if all the front desk staff was replaced or retrained
Too many inconveniences for a truly comfortable st
The room was very clean and spacious. The bathroom was beautiful and had amenities like a towel warmer and an overhead heat lamp. The hotel was in a great location in the heart of Mt Vernon - I could see the Washington Monument from my window. Housekeeping was very accommodating to our schedule and left the room pristine.
To preface this review, I stayed at the Wyndham for a total of 6 nights. The WIFI worked about half the time, which was detrimental because I was in Baltimore to take intensive courses at JHU and couldn't do my homework in the room. The staff blamed it on the windy weather, but it was such a huge inconvenience. My keycard also failed to work more than half the time, which was another annoyance. The front desk also overcharged me for "incidentals," a total of $115. They charge $50/day up to 2 days, which should only have come up to $100, so where did that extra $15 come from? They were pleasant enough about it, and corrected it accordingly, but I warn future guests to double check their transactions. Also, the fridge in the room wouldn't get cold even though it was plugged in, and the microwave emitted a scary burning smell when used. Finally, I stopped by IN PERSON the day before my check-in to request an extension of my check-out time from 11am to 2pm, and they happily obliged. Then, the night before my check-out date, I called down to the front desk to confirm and they claimed that they were overbooked and can only extend my check-out time to 12pm. When I let them know I made the request prior to check-in, no one seemed to know what I was talking about. They were kind enough to offer to store my luggage, but again, an inconvenience. Overall, my stay was mediocre due to the faulty amenities, but the staff was gracious and polite about everything. Still, I don't think I would stay here again.
