Easy walk to Capital and legislative office buildings. Lobby lounge is comfortable and spacious. Views of the capital dome from some rooms. Taxis accessible from main entrance. Easy access to the Mall area and museums. Meeting rooms kept at comfortable and cool temperature during warm summer months.

Place is coming apart. Neighborhood is bad - drugged zombies asking for money, throwing up in the street. My toilet never stopped running. After a couple calls, they sent someone to fix it, but it kept going, flushing itself every half hour. Made sleep difficult and disjointed.

The Washington Court hotel was an excellent place to stay. It was very clean, the staff was very helpful and professional, and the location was perfect. We had a small problem with our air conditioner. They sent someone to look at it to discover it was broken. It was fixed in a timely manner. The maintainence man was very professional.... More

Booked this hotel through bookit.com and was a bit skeptical of what it would be like for the price. Got there and it was FANTASTIC. Our room - 1501 had a stunning view of the Capitol out the window. Nice, clean, well maintained hotel! Everyone from the front desk to the restaurant and front door were friendly and extremely helpful.... More

Travelers: Family of four with 2 boys (12 and 13). Our stay at the Washington Court Hotel was an absolute dream. Service and food were excellent. Most importantly, every member of the staff seemed to truly enjoy their jobs. They were warm and attentive. Our room (1202) had a beautiful view of the Capitol Building and was clean and comfortable.

I enjoyed my business stay at the Washington Court. It was a short walk to the Capitol. there were many dining choices near by. My suite was large and had a view of the Capitol dome. The majority of the staff was pleasant and helpful.

We booked the room with two double beds.. But the room was very small. The bathroom was clean and big. Ok for a night stay if you are visiting the monuments and the museums.. Not worth the price. The location of the hotel is very nice. it's walking distance to the Capitol Hill.
