I had occasion to stay at the Washington Court recently while in town on business. My room was fine. The front desk staff was very unfriendly and not so helpful. The bellman could not have been nicer. In my room, cleaning was not consistent. I had to ask for fresh glasses and the coffee supplies were not replenished. Value for... More

Stayed here for a conference and it was a nice clean hotel. Upgraded to a Capitol Hill view and it was not worth cost of the upgrade. There were mostly satellites in the view. Very disappointed in the view. So not worth the extra money. Ate in the restaurant twice and it was good. Staff was friendly. Rooms were clean.... More

We got a great deal through groupon so keeping price in mind, hotel was well worth it. Room was large with comfortable beds. No view of Capitol, but that was ok since we did a lot of sightseeing and were barely in the room. The location is convenient and found plenty to eat around there. Parking was indeed very expensive... More

My family and I have been to DC many times and have stayed in several areas. This trip, we learned that, hands down, the location to be at is Union Station. This hotel and a handful of others are located literally 5 minutes from there. For the price, it really couldn't be beat. As others have noted, it's silly to... More

Traveled to DC on business and was assigned this hotel as it was within walking distance of our conference. Very surprised that something so close to the Capital was so "average." Considering the price the room had few extra amenities... the tv worked only periodically even after the maintenance folks replaced the remote twice... had to call to get an... More

Beautiful hotel, great rooms, well appointed, comfortable, with all the amenities (except, strangely, any sort of in room safe, which is pretty rare these days not to have one), even a decent fitness center. But, from minute one the service was mediocre. The bell captains couldn't be bothered helping with luggage when we arrived, nor even holding the doors open,... More

I stayed at Washington Court for three nights and had an excellent stay. I got the Amtrak from New York and the hotel is about 5 minutes walk from Union station. The staff were lovely, I arrived a bit early and my room wasn't ready for another hour or so but I waited in the lobby and when my room... More

Hotel is in a decent location, accommodations including lobby and room were nice but nothing exceptional. Lobby space needs to be updated, it still has a 1994 look to it. Rooms were clean but not spotless. A little more attention to detail needed to be get a five rating.

Excellent hotel and location. Employees were all polite and courteous. They were very responsive to your needs. It is close to the Capital and all transportation, Union Station is within walking distance. Rooms were very very nice. We dined in the restaurant, menu was very good, reasonable and the food was delicious. The waitress was very nice and accomodating to... More
