I really enjoyed my stay. The service was good and my room was quite nice. I only are breakfast at the restaurant but it was very good. The fitness center is fantastic. My room was clean and well appointed. You aren't isolated from street noise but I've never minded city noises - just be aware you are on top of... More

When we visit a city, we really like to walk everywhere. Staying at this hotel made walking possible whether to the Capitol, the National Mall, or the Smithsonian Museums. We could also walk from the Union Station to the hotel, which was only a half mile away. We had a backpack and carry-on a piece, but had we needed to... More

Wasn't sure what to expect when I booked this hotel for our annual mother-daughter getaway. The pressure is on to have a positive experience as we do this only once a year. Well it couldn't have been a better experience! The doormen, bartender and front desk and room service staff were so efficient, helpful, accommodating and friendly! The room was... More

We spent three nights at this hotel to "do" the Washington sights. Walking distance from Amtrak was handy. Shame on check in at 3pm to find rooms were not ready till 4pm. No problem, we did Capitol Hill ( walking distance!) but then on our return found one room was still not made up. Perfect reaction from the front desk,... More

The Washington Court Hotel was perfect for a quick weekend trip to DC. The room was huge! The bathroom was nice, everything was clean, and the staff was very friendly. The room was very comfortable as well. My only complaint would be location; the hotel was farther from the National Mall than I would have liked and we ended up... More

Two blocks away from Capital and Union Station. For location, you can't get much better. The lobby looked very nice. Check in was not as great. The people at the front desk were not very nice. We had three rooms and asked if one was ready to place our luggage. We were told in no uncertain terms, that "none of... More

It was a great for the price and just for the fact that it is in DC. We went for a concert, and they even had someone that took us to the place that we needed to be. If I have to go to DC again, I will stay there.

We bought a group on and were nervous. Huge lobby with bar. Modern rooms. Comfortable bed. Starbucks across the street if you want to save money on breakfast. Avoid E and F street near 395 on ramp at night or take a cab home. We had a king suite and enjoyed our great view of the Capital. B plus overall.... More

Stayed here recently courtesy of a client, so I would be near their office. Interesting lobby, routine check-in, nice glass elevators, etc. Room was fine but ordinary. Was underwhelmed but some little things - my room had a sort of mild locker room smell, the cover was coming off the AC mechanical system by the front door and was sort... More
