1. We had a great stay-cation at The Liaison Capitol Hill. The hotel itself was nice and the amenities were great- we enjoyed the rooftop pool (not the staff).... With that being said, we definitely would NOT recommend the hotel...
I don't think I've ever been treated so poorly by anyone and from the minute we walked in the front desk staff had an attitude. We had confirmed and paid for an early check-in, but apparently there were no rooms available. Instead of apologizing for the inconvenience or offering us any other options the front desk staff argued with us and told us we didn't select an early check-in. We have the receipt and confirmation that shows that we did, so I'm still not sure what the problem was. If there were no rooms ready, that's a little annoying, but understandable-- what wasn't understandable was how she treated us. Unfortunately, that was only the beginning of the issues we had with multiple hotel staff members and we were only there for a day and a half!
After a lot of work on my husband's end, he was able to talk to the manager about our stay and while he was apologetic I still wouldn't recommend the hotel. Being polite and treating people with respect is THE EASIEST thing you can do, I really don't think there's ever any excuse.
3. We chose pool time over getting ready time so we were running late to leave for dinner so we didn't have time to take any proper pictures, but I tried to get a semi-decent picture of my outfit because the lovely Amanda helped me figure out what shoes to wear! I got this jumpsuit from Forever 21-- not only do I not own any jumpsuits, I definitely don't own anything wide-legged so this was totally different from me but I loved it.
4. Normally I would avoid anything with an ankle strap because my short legs need all the elongating they can get. After the above jumpsuit was hemmed too short, I was in a bind trying to find shoes that would work with the new length. I found these at Target for like $25 and they were perfect!
