The Washington Court has a great location near Capitol Hill and not too far from the Canadian Embassy. If you're not going to a place in the area, there are much better located hotels nearer the Dupont Circle area. I was only in the hotel one night. The room was comfortably furnished and rather spacious, as was the bathroom. The... More

While I live in the D.C. suburbs, the morning rush hour traffic makes getting into downtown for an early morning meeting a challenge. This time, rather than leave my house at 5 a.m., I booked a room at Washington Court. I was surprised at how large and quiet my room was. It's not clear if they gave me an upgrade,... More

Stayed in this hotel because my conference hotel (Hyatt Regency) was sold out. This hotel was less expensive and seemed just as nice. Wifi didn't work the first night I was there, but got an apology and a prompt credit to the bill. Only negative comment is that the lobby smelled quite musty, like all the carpets were wet.

Just got back from staying a week at this wonderful hotel. It was important to find a clean, quiet, safe hotel within walking distance to all the attractions because I was travelling solo. I absolutely loved staying at this hotel. Flew into Reagon National airport which is only about 5 miles from the hotel which was so much easier. It... More

We stayed at the Washington Court for 4 nights/5 days and it was perfect! We arrived in DC at 9 a.m. We went to the hotel expecting to just leave our bags until check-in at 4 p.m. We went to the desk and let them know we were there to leave our things and the staff immediately checked to see...

This is not the place for the faddish. It's a pretty traditional place and the staff seems efficient while not overly officious. But for a quality hotel literally within steps of the Capitol, it's hard to beat the Washington Court. Having stayed at the Washington Court once or twice a year for the past decade and a half, I must... More

I had the pleasure of staying in the hotel for a week. I have to say this is an excellent hotel with a good room service, a variety of food was offered to us for breakfast and dinner. They do have a nice bar to relax after a long day at work or a business meeting with partners. The rooms... More

To Celebrate my aunt's Birthday, we traveled to Washington DC. This is a trip my aunt had wanted to take for several years, so it was very special to us to go together. The hotel staff were so very helpful to us, giving us ideas on how to travel through the area most economically and yet see what we wanted... More

My husband and I stayed at the Washing Court Hotel for one night on October 22, 2011, for our 1 year Anniversary. The main reason we chose this hotel was for the location. It was also a great price, considering how close it was to everything! Check in was smooth. The man at the front desk was VERY nice. When... More

We were a family of 5 travelling in America staying 9 nights in Washington. For a 4 star hotel it was very disappointing. They forgot to make up our room twice, charged us $11.00 to print up 2 pages of airline tickets (where other places it was for free), the smoke alarm kept on going off when we had a... More
