Although we stayed here for only one night, our stay was a pleasant one. We were passing through Washington D.C. on our way home and needed a place to stay for the night. When we arrived there, the valet attendant suggested that we park our car across the street since it's free for the night and according to him, valet... More

The hotel appears to be in the final stages of a renovation and upgrade and its all good. The lobby and public areas are sleek, modern and well maintained. Our room was spotless with a view of the Capitol (see photo lol). Water pressure and heat were impressive. The breakfast was excellent, there's a good looking buffet, but we went... More

Just came back from a nice overnight trip to Washington D.C. Washington Court Hotel is a great choice of a hotel if all you want to do is sleep. Its location is close enough to all the museums and Union Station. Room is clean. Bed was very comfortable, ask for a king size bed. there was a keurig machine but... More

Our family of 4 stayed here for a training and lobbying event. Only a 5-minute walk from Union Station or the Capitol. Convenient walk to museums, monuments, Verizon Center, Ford's Theatre, and other spots. Cabs always available out front. Great view of the Capitol and DC skyline from our room. Our room was spacious and the hotel service fabulous. The... More

This was my second time staying in the Washington Court Hotel and I enjoyed my stay just as much as the first time I came (about a year and a half ago). First, you cannot beat the location of this hotel- you can see the Capitol directly from the front door; it's within walking distance of just about all the... More

I stayed here in April with my family for Spring Break. One word only- Amazing! The hotel was huge and clean with amazing service. Valet parking took your car to the garage with you doing no work. There was a gift shop, bar and a pretty expensive restaurant. Room was large and very clean, neat and fancy. If you go... More

Stayed here for one night as I was on business and arriving quite late in the evening. The hotel was located within walking distance from the train station. The next day, I was able to walk to work which was also very convenient. Had a comfortable night sleep but nothing special about this place in terms of the details. Ordered... More

I stayed there for a conference. The hotel is a bit run down. The bathrooms are dated. No one picked up the phone at the front desk after 10 pm two nights in a row. Excellent location. Within walking distance of the Capitol, Union station, and the Mall.

I had booked this hotel based mainly on its close proximity to the train station given I was only going to be here for one night. Anyways, I was quite impressed with the quality of the lobby but also their rooms. Everything felt modern and nice. The hotel isn't super close to the main attractions, but is close enough to...

Stayed at this hotel January 17th. Although the hotel was under renovation, I couldn't tell. The staff was very helpful, even helping find a reasonable ($$) place to park my car. Hotel is within easy walking distance to museums and Capitol Hill, so if you arrive by car, you really will not need it to go see the major sights... More
