Andrea was awesome to me always smiling and friendly makes coming here a joy! It’s nice to engage with Generator staff in everyday conversation. The Generator feels like family to me and I always enjoy my stay and recommend others to check out the accommodations.

I would never recommend this place. The hotel had insects in the bathroom of the room, the security of the hotel is terrible. The bathroom has no extractor and the smell of the room is terrible, they have a lot to improve.

Had a great time. The people were very nice and the environment was great and location allowed me to walk around to many places easily. I had roommates and they were very great and everyone just went about their own thing and it was very quiet.

This place has the most Un American decor in the rooms! Spray paint over a portrait with foreign language, which is vandalism, but we were told don’t worry, it’s ‘expressive art’! I call it disrespectful! Wonder if I did that what would happen? NEVER stay here!

I did not have warm water in my shower. The water would only get very hot or very cold. I alerted the front desk each day. The front desk didn't move me to a new room until my last day staying at the hotel. I could not shower in my hotel bathroom. Additionally, the telephone was not connected to a cord. There was no connection cord, which is a safety issue. I alerted the front desk to no avail.

The Generator was so lovely! Nice staff, clean, and affordable. So glad I stayed here on my trip to DC. Aicha, Tina, Khadijah, and Reyna were so helpful! I loved the atmosphere in the lobby everyday as it was easy to meet other people while doing work or just relaxing!

I came to the Generator with a study abroad group fo 10 days. I had a great experience! They had a wonderful breakfast planned everyday for us. The morning kitchen staff (Aicha, Khadija, Tina, and Reyna) were so kind and amazing! They had a full spread of amazing food and made personalized plates for those with food restrictions. Highly recommend!

Thank you Aicha, Khadija, Tina, Reyna for the yummy breakfast!! Everyone was really kind and the food was great every day. My favorite breakfast item was the avocado toast, which they made for me because I am lactose intolerant. The atmosphere was also great (jungle-themed), clean, and spacious.

Tina and Aicha were very lovely and accomodating when serving us breakfast. They were so welcoming and made me feel at home! They were very receptive if there was diet restrictions and made sure that everything was well stocked throughout breakfast.
