Just spent 6 nights at the Washington Court Hotel for a national conference. Before the snowstorm hit DC, I was impressed with the service from the hotel staff and the comfortable rooms. After the snow storm hit I was deeply impressed with the care and dedication of the staff to help me after I was delayed from leaving DC for...

I've stayed at this hotel 3 times totaling 12 nights and have loved it each time. Here's a hint (am I allowed to do this?): on a certain website that rhymes with hookit, you can get this hotel for about $85/night, making it an incredible value. It's just a couple blocks from Union Station (easily walkable with rolling luggage), the...

Our welcome was immediate! Anthony Garrido made our check-in effortless! We needed a room by the elevator and imagine our surprise when we opened our door and saw the beautiful Capitol Building smack in the middle if our window! The sunrise was spectacular! Anthony was patient and kind in in reserving the Big Bus for a 2hr tour of the...

Arrived and tried to check in. Rude, internship-age clerk claimed I did not have a reservation and refused to take my reservation confirmation number despite THREE offers. No manager on duty (or so they claimed). Went to another hotel. Spoke to GM's assistant the next day (GM too important to ever return call) who claimed my version of event was...

You really cant beat this location, but the place needs some real updating.... really... We stayed there for five nights, and between the paper thin walls, and door - you could hear people in the hallway, flushing toilets next door... But really by putting a flat screen tv set in a room, and a fancy I/P phone - which you...

The hotel is in the Capitol Hill area, which puts it within walking distance to Union Station, the Capitol Building, and Georgetown University Law Center and the DC Metro as well as a variety of other locales. This is not one of those hotels where there is a disappointing disparity between the welcoming lobby and your room once you walk...

This is a very good hotel for the price. It is a short walk to union station (I came in from New York) and it is close to everything. I think it used to be a Sheraton Hotel because the logo is still on the back of the hotel room doors. The decor is dated with faux brass fixtures, but...

This hotel is in a great location, only a short walk from Union station so was really good for us as we came on the train with our suitcases and the Capitol Building is just down the road along with the National Mall. The room was Clean and Tidy and they honored our request for a room as high as...

Had an overnight stay in this hotel on a business trip. Surpassed my expectations in all regards, especially the restaurant. I'm a picky foodie and don't expect much when I travel, but this was exceptionally delicious, both dinner and breakfast. Had the squash soup and salmon salad for dinner, tender lox and bagel for breakfast- waiter made a point of...
