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.

We stayed here for only one night over Columbus Day weekend. We have 3 kids, ages 5, 8 and 10. We were able to book one room and get a great rollaway bed for $25. The hotel is only a couple blocks from Union Station so you can easily access the Metro. We walked to the botanical gardens and museums... More

Hotel was recommended to us by a friend - great holiday rates, rooms were comfortable, clean, roomy - ask for a room with a view of the Capitol dome! Close to Union Station and an easy walk to the Capitol, Supreme Court and many of the museums. There was a charge for in-room internet access, which I knew before we... More

The hotel is conveniently located near Union station and just 2 blocks away from the Capitol building. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was much bigger and cleaner than I expected, after reading some of the reviews on this web site. The bed was too soft for me personally, but my husband loved it. We used the... More

Because we were planning to vacation with a third adult in the room we reserved an Executive Room with a king-size bed instead of a Deluxe Room with a king-size bed. The bellman who... More

After being stranded in by blizzard Virginia, I was able to get a train out of Union Station and booked a last minute room at the Washington Court Hotel. I got an amazing rate! The hotel and room were lovely, and the location could not have been better. After a frustrating couple of days trying to figure out a way... More
