Sitting just at the edge of Dupont Circle, one door down from the corner of 16th and T in the north side of Washington DC, you will find a historic district laden with lovely old buildings, and Windsor Inn. I had the pleasure of staying in this lovely old inn for several nights in mid-February. The weather was blustery and... More

This hotel claimed it was .7 miles from the convention center on its website but in fact its more like 2.5 miles. Strike 1 The mattress was old and the sheets were stained. I asked the chambermaid if she could change the sheets after my first night and then found the same stain in the same place when i returned... More

This hotel is located on 18th street. Take a 30 minutes walk downtown and you'll find yourself at white house or at the mall. Take a 5 minute walk uptown and your at U street. The rooms are pretty outdated but our bathroom at garden level was totally new. We didnt take the additional breakfast. The staff was very friendly... More

Stayed here for a conference. The conference was way down by Mt. Vernon Square but the 30 minute stroll from the hotel was quite enjoyable. The hotel is quaint and seemingly quite old. The rooms are worn but clean. The bed in my room was small (not quite full sized) but EXTREMELY comfortable. The people at the front desk were... More

The Windsor is an older hotel, quaint, a little clunky and worn but a truly fabulous value for downtown Washington. You are within a very short walk from U Street clubs and dining, Metro, and other services. The desk staff are friendly and very helpful, especially in explaining the parking regulations. Sure it's not the Ritz, but it doesn't break... More

Great location with a short walk to metro stations but worth the stroll; cool neighborhood with a lively nightlife, good local restaurants and bars with music venues. The hotel exterior is old but charming. The interior definetely needs refurbishing: painting and new carpets would help. The room was small but clean, no WiFi. Best: Very affordable compared to Washington DC... More

The good: Location - While not very close to the national mall, and the closest metro station is about 7-10 minutes walk the location is still very cool because of the neighbourhood - U street corridor. U street corridor is a very interesting and fun neighbourhood - it's important historically, as the biggest african-american neighbourhood until 1920 (when it was... More

Quirky hotel but with some charm. Very friendly staff. My room was big and with old wallpaper slightly reminiscent of "The Shining". No Wifi in room. Got a very good deal and was totally fine with it.

We stayed at the Windsor for the second time on Nov. 5th and 6th, 2013. The building itself has old time character, and could be beautiful with some interior painting and new carpets. It is clean, quiet, affordable by Washington standards, and in a good location. Its best feature is the staff, especially Jamie, who delights in sharing his impressive... More

You know how sometimes you walk into a place and you might either think 'very authentic' or 'a little tired'? Well, that is a little bit how the Windsor Inn feels. And now, don't take this as a negative thing! We really enjoyed the place. We had the bigger front room and it was fine. The street noise can keep... More
