I just returned from four days in Washington and my experience at the Washington Court helped to make it a great trip. I wanted a hotel within a short walk to the Capitol and it met that requirement. My room was ready on time, the staff was pleasant and helpful, and the room was cleaned spotlessly each day. Additional positives:... More

It's expensive for the room quality -- but then it's Capitol Hill in D.C. There seems to be a disconnect between reservation line rates and web-based rates. Web rates were cheaper when my group booked for some reason. It's solid for a business convening in D.C. if the goal is to be close to the Hill. It's not the fanciest... More

This is a nice hotel and the rooms are nice but nothing special. The size of the room and the location of the hotel are the best reasons to stay at this hotel.

I loved staying here. The room was pretty plain but it was very clean and the hotel is newly renovated. The staff is extraordinary!! You almost couldnt do anything for yourself- someone was there at every turn to hold a door, welcome you back, give you directions...The location is fantastic. You can literally look out your window at the Capitol... More

I love staying at the Washington Court. The Capital Hill location is excellent, and the staff is always courteous and helpful. The rooms are large, quiet, and comfortable. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when I'm in DC.

During a recent business trip, I stayed at the Washington Court for 2 nights. The staff was very accomodating and the doormen are the best in town! The hotel has a pretty lobby and its central location makes getting around town a breeze. The view on New Jersey ave of the Capitol Building as you approach the hotel is second... More

Yes, this hotel is clean, conveniently located and the staff is extremely courteous, BUT... I don't mind paying extra money for extra service, luxury, etc. however, this hotel charges exhorbitant rates and then hits you up for services that are free in most hotels... $10/day to access Wi-Fi in your room (it's free in the lobby at a whopping 11Mbps!)...

This hotel is in a fantastic location.Walk to all the sightseeing .Union Square Station is a short walk and worth a visit to see the interoir if not catching a train.The hotel is very clean and staff very friendly.Little squirrels inhabit the area outside so a real hit with the young ones.Really enjoyed our stay here.
