Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Let's acknowledge the importance of AC in Washington DC. It's essential. But, when the AC unit in your hotel room kicks in and it roars to life like an airplane engine at take-off, you're not going to get any sleep. Even with ear plugs, it was a non-starter. Had to turn it off and swelter just to get some rest.

Hotel's Favourite
The Canopy Hotel has a perfect location, right at the beginning of the wharf. Parking is expensive, but available - if traveling from out of town, you may want to consider just taking cabs and rideshare from the airport, since there's so much to do within walkable distance. The front desk staff is exceptional - they really seem to enjoy what they do. Check in was a breeze, and the room is beautiful. Great water pressure, sizable bathroom space, large windows, most with a beautiful view of the water-there's also a wonderful patio space outside with great views of the river. The Wi-Fi signal was strong throughout or stay, at no additional charge. There is quite a bit of construction in the area, but not enough to be bothersome. Some of the services have clearly been affected by either staffing or access to resources - housekeeping services are limited, and some of the staff at the restaurant seems to be a little disengaged, put the jobs get done, albeit inconsistently. Pricing is very reasonable, especially for such a perfect location close to monuments, sightseeing, and all that the wharf has to offer. From the wharf, you can take a water taxi to Alexandria or the national harbor in a breeze! We certainly look forward to returning soon.

I was in the area for a conference and working for a hotelier I felt it necessary to comment on this property based on my experience and what I noticed when staying at this property. First, let me say the location is great and the staff is also wonderful but based on the price I was paying ($500 per night with taxes) I was hoping for a lot more out of a Canopy Hilton property. The first design and layout issue I found was that there is no TV in the main bar on the lobby level. There are TVs upstairs in the Whiskey Roof Top Lounge but you will be subject to loud blaring music all night being hardly able to talk to the people you are there with. The roof top lounge is a nice party atmosphere but I just wanted to watch a Monday night football game. So, to my surprise there was no TV to watch a football game in the lobby bar but there are TVs to watch just outside the restaurant in these cute little nooks. The only issue is that some smart designer thought it would be great to put a pendant light in front of the TV so you can't watch the TV. Why would anyone design that? And not to mention the wood bench that was very uncomfortable and had little functional use from what I could see. Just very poor design and space planning. The rooms where also laid out terrible. Never should you be looking over your couch to watch TV. The rooms are just poorly laid out and there could have been other options to make the room more functional. And some of the finishes in the bathroom were showing water damage. It just showed lack of care for the property that seemed to be pretty new. A few other annoyances. The keycard reader for the elevators is not convenient and it seemed the employees constantly were reminding people how to swipe the cards and get up to their rooms. And the ground floor seemed a lot of wasted space that could have housed a front desk/check in or some sort of greeting for guests rather than putting it on the next floor making guests walk up or take an elevator to check in. It just seemed unnecessary. I do want to say that the staff was great. They allowed us to eat the lunch we purchased from the seafood stand Jesse Taylor's out on the porch, although we did get a few beers. And the property, including the rooms, were very clean. Overall, my POOR rating is mostly due to the very bad design and space planning of the hotel. And the bad design choices to stick lighting in front of a TV in the lobby lounge area. I know it may seem like a small thing but these small finishes and touches make a big difference in the experience the guest has at your hotel. And for $500 with taxes per night I would expect a different level of experience from a Canopy Hilton on the DC Wharf.

Great hotel convenient to the Wharf and a host of god restaurants and things to do. Staff is helpful and welcoming - cleaning staff is awesome. The rooftop bar is the one reason I didn’t give a 5 star review. Expensive, loud, and staff is disinterested in serving guests (unless you are a friend of theirs I guess?). View is great but beyond that there are plenty of other options.

Location! Location! Perfect location for a weekend if sightseeing! Loved the wharf area plenty of restaurants, beautiful views! So convenient to National Monuments, museums. The hotel staff was fantastic we requested and received an early check in our room 928 was perfect! We had lunch @ Central Cafe and Bar really great food. Again the staff was fantastic! Really surprised the negative reviews on device I felt the service was perfect. Tynisha the host was fantastic!! The hotel fitness room is nice. The wharf and surrounding area is very bike/runner/walking friendly. Oh also whisky Charlie rooftop bar was fun. Under construction but we enjoy a drink and the views are great!

Great place to stay for a weekend getaway. Great location if you’re attending a concert at The Anthem because it’s a short walk with tons of restaurants along the walk. Also, it’s a short Uber ride to Nats Park to catch a game. Hotel is very secure and hotel staff are very friendly. Hotel also very clean- comfy bed/pillows and great shower.
