I am a frequent business traveler and usually stay in Hilton related hotels. This was my first experience at the Washington Court. I was very pleased with our experience. Adam at the front desk was especially helpful and even remembered our names when we checked in having spoken to us the day before we arrived. The hotel is well cared... More

Perchance I'm biased but since I live in Capitol Hill and only booked when the Mid Atlantic Leather host hotel reservations ran out, I was only looking to be near enough to walk to the events without having to catch a bus or metro. I was more than pleasantly surprised when no one looked askance at me in Leather wear... More

We stayed at Washington Court for 4 days over Easter Weekend. It is the perfect location for exploring DC. 2 blocks from the Capitol and Union station, it is easy to get around the city. Check in was super easy and the doormen helped us every day by storing our bikes we rented and our bags on check in/out day.... More

Stayed here one night just before catching a train to NYC. The proximity to Union Station is excellent and makes for an easy walk. Hotel is nicely kept, comfortable, and clean. One of the hotel staffers recommended a restaurant called Vapiano's in Chinatown. A short cab ride, but well worth it. The food and the atmosphere were excellent. Thanks for... More

We just came back from a 3-night stay at this hotel. We booked 3 rooms for 3 couples through SniqueAway, which gave us a good deal. First impression was nice. The entry area opens up to a bright, airy and beautiful lobby. Bellmen were nice and courteous. The lady at the reception could be more friendly and welcoming. She was... More

Four of us took a long weekend trip to DC. (2 couples, 2 rooms). We were pleased with everything...the check-in was fast and courteous, the rooms were very clean and comfortable. The location of the hotel was perfect for seeing so many sites by foot. When we asked about restaurants in the area, they gave us a list and made... More

I have stayed at many different hotels - and they are not always as great as one could hope. But in the pricerange I usually go after dirty and poorly kept rooms are very rare. This hotel disproves my general experience. We stayed four nights and not one day was the bed properly made. On 2-3 occasions pillows were on... More

The Washington Court Hotel was a great place to stay. The location was excellent for visiting the sites of Washington with our family. The convenience of Union Station was also a big plus since one of our daughters came down by train. The staff was friendly and very professional during the entire trip. The room was well appointed and we... More

We just returned from a four day stay in Washington DC. We really enjoyed our stay at the Washington Court Hotel. I specifically asked for a view of the Capitol and our room did not disappoint. The staff was helpful from the front desk to the bellman. Our room was clean and the location was great. We were originally scheduled... More
