When we first arrived we were told that our room had water damage and moved to the Embassy Inn ( sister hotel). Checked in into the Embassy Inn, room was extremely small, bed uncomfortable, bathroom dirty. Overall room was disgusting! Heard water running through drain pipes in the wall all night long. When brought to staff's attention we were ignored... More

Manager is the most obstinate guy taking care of a front desk. There was several rooms ready to check in but he make us wait two hours until 3pm to let us in. Hotel is noisy, rooms are very small and kind of dirty. I do NOT recommend this hotel for anybody.

My friend got ill and couldn't join me on this trip, so another friend of me came with me to Washington. My friend who got ill changed his name to my name as the primary... More

We were told there was parking available, at a cost. They were right. At a parkade several blocks away. Nice touch. Also...do NOT arrive before 3 pm. and, I mean precisely 3 pm! We arrived at 2:50 pm, and were told to wait. Another nice touch...made us feel welcome. The front desk personnel were not the friendliest. They should simply... More

I was looking for a hotel in Washington DC Near the Australian Embassy on Massachusetts Ave for a quick business overnighter. And this was all I could get under a couple of hundred dollars for the night.....I thought - it's only one night, the other reviews said it wasn't great but I thought I'd book and take our chances. To... More

I stayed at the District Hotel last night (March 25, 2014), as it was one of the few hotels I could find for around $200. It is a complete dump. Quite possibly THE WORST HOTEL I have ever stayed in. The elevator looks positively dangerous. The room was tiny, the TV was a 15" item on a tiny table at... More

This hotel was dreadful. I stayed there for two nights and was very glad to leave. It is a budget hotel but it was so depressing I would rather spend more and stay elsewhere. My room had a very stained carpet and was tiny. It had a random cupboard which had a door which wouldn't close and got in the... More

This was by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed at pay the extra 45 dollars to stay elsewhere. The bed sizes were misleading. We booked a double bed and were given a single when we confronted the front desk he tried to say it was a double. We took the measurements it is most certainly was not. After... More
