We stayed on floor 5, in a corner room, which was AMAZING! I loved everything about this hotel! Comfy beds, quiet, clean, good TV channels, nespresso coffee pods, L'Occitane amenities, seat in the shower, waterfall showerhead. This boutique hotel was so pretty, luxurious and good value for money. The only downside is that the walk was too far to the... More

Nice small hotel on a lovely street with beautiful home and embassies. The rooms were quite small for 2. Some small things could be fixed - The door to the room was hard to open, I had issues operating the expresso machine, and the room could have used new pillows. That being said, the staff was very helpful and the... More

I stayed in this hotel for one week whilst on business. I was attending a conference and dont like staying in the same hotel as the conference, partly because they are large and faceless and it feels like you never leave work. I found this hotel on google search, it was a great place to stay. Each day as I... More

Overall, I recommend this hotel as a great alternative to the "chain" hotels. I truly felt like a guest in someone's (large but not ginormous) home. It does show some wear, but you can't beat the location or the value. My room was lovely, with a Colonial feel. My bed was very comfortable, and what a treat to have a... More

We were a group of 32 here for a conference. The hotel could not have been more accommodating! All of our rooms were ready when we arrived and the manager was there to greet us. The hotel staff was lovely and helpful. The rooms were well appointed. Loved the occtaine products in the bathroom. Looking forward to staying here again... More

Cute little boutique hotel near Dupont Circle in DC. Loved that it was smaller and more personal. Everyone working in the hotel was helpful, everyone. The wine and cheese party was nice and the availability of coffee and orange water 24/7 was very nice. The rate was wonderful, the room was great, and clean and we will definitely stay again.

This was one of the cheapest hotels in the city when I was booking, so I was skeptical, but really pleasantly surprised. The rooms, while small (European-sized), had a ton of character - more than most hotels. The rooms had their own espresso machines, nice wallpaper, and all-marble bathrooms. Not entirely sure why it was so cheap... It's in a... More

Stumbled across this gem. The service was consistently excellent everyday we were there (4 days three nights). The staff were wonderful and the amenities were great too. The room is quaint, but exactly what we needed. It was clean and well maintained. The location is nice because it's near restaurants, shopping and metro in DuPont Circle, but away from all... More

In a quiet embasssy-replete area of Washington DC, midway between the pricey and often pretentious tourist hubs of Dupont Circle and Woodley Park, just off Connecticut Ave., the Normandy Hotel is a charming and engaging reminder of the joys of non-chain hotel travel. The atmosphere is that of a European hotel, with a welcoming and accomodating staff who are both... More

Such pleasant staff, they can't do enough to help you. A lovely boutique Hotel in a cool neighbourhood. I can't wait to come back, a nice vibe and it's immaculate. The only negative was breakfast was slightly expensive, but great cafes down the road.
