Pros: Location. Cleanliness. Breakfast and Happy Hour.
Not Pet Friendly Pros: Clean room. We had previously visited this facility and were impressed enough to return less than a month later. We make frequent trips to DC so was looking for a place to stay on a regular basis. Cons: Pet Friendly turned out to be a $75 fee for a one night stay. I have stayed at facilities and paid $15 but not $75! We have a small scnoodle that doesn't shed. I can't imagine what the $75 cleaning fee was used for. I would have preferred to have the fee disclosed on our reservation. I could have had a pet sitter come to my house for less money. Another problem was the heat - the room took 4 hours to warm up. The staff said this was normal and if it lasted all night they would compensate us. They said there were no alternative rooms available which I didn't believe based upon size of hotel and cars in parking lot. I think they just didn't want to accommodate people with a pet. Definitely not pet friendly.
I will rate this hotel a solid 5 star Pros: Sonesta was beyond clean, the rooms were comfortable the staff were nice The complimentary breakfast was great. I just can't find any fault in it. I had the best stay in the hotel. The moment I stepped into the hotel I was like " I am going online to rate this hotel a 5 star after my stay" I didn't have a change of mind all through my stay. Cons: Nothing
Pros: i feel because we booked on line the room we were given was the worst available.first and second rooms were end of hallways and one was handicapped. then then next room had a bad odor we were told it had been thoroughly cleaned and the odor must be from that.t appears
when we book on line we are given rooms that are the worst available
We have.stayed a about 20 locations in the past year and windup with problem rooms booked on line many times.We were told on two occasions that priority rooms go to direct booking customers.When we book direct we seldom have a issue.I know are experience is a small sample,but there seems to be a trend .
home away from homePros: this hotel was perfect! Me and boyfriend stayed here for a night for the Sweetlife Festival! It was our first time in Maryland. The staff was very friendly and very helpful, especially when we asked for directions to get somewhere; instead of just telling us where the location was they actually printed out directions for us. The rooms for very clean and very spacious almost like a mini one room apartment. The kitchen was a decent size they give you plates, cups forks..ect..to use. also nice seating area for when you want to just relax without laying in bed. Also it was nice that they had a shampoo and conditioner and body wash despensor right in the shower so if you forgot something it was right there for you!Also this hotel was located close enough to the city part of columbia but far enough to not be in the hossel of it all. also free breakfast! also the price was desent for what your getting! and check out wasnt until 12 which was lovely so we didnt feel rushed in the morning to get out of there! I would defiantly stay at this hotel whenever we go back to maryland. Cons: the breakfast wasnt the best. but you could always make your own if you felt like it in your own personal kitchen!
Sonesta Columbia MDPros: Very clean hotel, seems to be newer. Large king room, great staff, good location to Merriweather Post Pavilion, 10 -12 min drive. So nice to have kitchen & fridge in room as you are better off cooking yourself than eat in Columbia, MD. Best extended stay hotel in the area.Cons: Only flaw of the room is that the kitchen could use a few more pots / dishes / utensils. We used it a lot as the dining options in Columbia MD are just depressing.
The town of Columbia MD is a giant strip mall / shopping center / business park. Unless you are going for an event at Merriweather Post, there is no reason to stop in this city
