Do NOT stay at this hotel. The customer service is appalling. I had a Groupon and they gave me a really hard time, made me email them a screen shot at check-in, then at check-out they didn't know how to process it, even the manager was clueless. They kept me waiting for 20 mins while I was trying to check-out... More

I am the president of a university organization and I stayed here with a group of members for a regional conference. I was plesantly surprised that we were able to get two rooms for 2 nights for under $800 at such a nice location in DC (and that was even without booking with the conference block). The rooms were comfortable... More

I'm not sure where to begin. I've stayed at this hotel multiple times as we have used it on business trips over the years. Despite the fact that we have stayed there many times (5 or 6 years) with large groups, they never seem to realize who we are when we check on. Okay. This year they were redoing parts... More

I visited the hotel on business trip based on its location with low expectations based on the price. The room was large, very clean and newly updated with dual shower heads in the bathroom. Food at the restaurant was good and the staff was all extra pleasant. The location was great as I already knew. I could see the Capital... More

This was our first time to Washington DC and I decided to book a last minute vacation two nights before we decided to visit. The rate of the room was $95/night. You can't beat that being so close to everything and even having a beautiful stay in this hotel. The bellhop was very helpful and nice. The rooms were very... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel, the rooms were beautiful. My husband was pretty sure I had gone over our budget and splurged, but I actually came in below it. About a 5-7 minute walk from union station, which pretty much will get you wherever you need to go. We didn't actually try to restaurant except to get a... More

When my mum came to pick me up from school for winter break we made it into "a weekend getaway"...from college, and this hotel accommodated us very well. At check-in we were greeted by a doorman who helped us get our baggage to the check-in desk. There we were helped by a very kind staff member who assisted us in... More

This place was just a few blocks from everything we needed. The bed was huge, the bathroom was great, and the doorman was not only handsome but very friendly. Chinatown bars and restaurants are close, there were always taxis available. Great Stay, would recommend and will return.

I remain completely fascinated by the ability of the Washington Court to stay in business, and assume that one-time visitors to DC + a location proximate to Capitol Hill and Union Station are what saves this place. I don't know of any business hotel that doesn't have in-room safes, and I really don't appreciate having to take my jewelry and... More
