I am conflicted about the Normandy.We enjoyed our stay here. Located in a beautiful area north of Dupont Circle, this small older hotel has a lot to recommend it but several issues. The common areas are cramped but quaint. The breakfast was adequate and came with our package . Not worth $12 otherwise. Very limited selection. Wine and cheese are... More

The Normandy is well situated, being only a short walk from shops, restaurants and transport routes. We walked out each morning, caught a bus to various attractions, came back in the evening and were able to find good restaurants for dinner. We particularly liked Ruth and Chris's Steakhouse. The staff at The Normandy were very helpful re tourist activities. Breakfast... More

My 21 year old son and I recently stayed at the Normandy when we vacationed in Washington DC. We found the hotel while going through an old (2007) Frommer's travel book--it was listed as the "Best Inexpensive Hotel" in Washington DC. We checked current TripAdvisor comments and the current price and decided to go for it! The hotel/surroundings felt very... More

We used to live in DC and were returning after seven years. We didn't want a chain hotel, same wherever in the world. We wanted somewhere good for exploring on foot. The Normandy was just right. A stroll down the hill to DuPont Circle with its upmarket slightly bohemian feel, interesting food and drink, bookshops etc. not so far to... More

This hotel was booked for me by someone else - I would never have found it. Although a bit hard to find initially (because it is off the main road), the atmosphere was very residential outside and it felt like I as visiting a friend's home, rather than a hotel. The front desk staff was more helpful than any 5-star... More

This hotel has a great atmosphere, it is relaxed and the staff do a very good job. I I would happily give it a 'very good', but for the breakfast. This is meant to be a continental breakfast, but lacks cheese, ham or salami, tomatoes, and is graced with terrible sliced bread. The breakfast consists of dusty looking cereal, some... More

The room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. We had rooms facing the street, and in a week stay did not hear one vehicle or voice during the night. Bed was very comfortable, cookies during happy hour were a bonus for the non-wine drinkers, and the motion night light in the bathroom was a genius safety bonus for travelers. The hotel... More

Generally older hotels have to rely on panache rather than scale and the Normandy feels like the perfect size in that regard. It is tucked into a "neighborhood" just off some main shopping streets in downtown Washington DC. There is valet parking with in and out privileges and it is also close enough to walk to the Metro station. We... More

From the moment that we arrived we were treated like family. The staff could not be any more pleasant or professional. They offered every possible kindness. Our room was absolutely clean. We are sure to return.
