I strongly recommend this hotel. Before my trip I read many reviews on this hotel and after reading some bad reviews I was a little apprehensive. However, that changed when me and my fiancee arrived at the hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. James at the front desk especially. I also recommend the Romance in Washington Package at... More

this hotel even forwarded me paperwork that I'd left in the room within 24 hours. can't grumble about the staff or the rooms. dont check out before you actually leave, as you need your room key to access the toilets in the foyer, which we found out too late.....never mind this hotel also has conference rooms and there were couples,...

Spent 4 days in DC at Washington Court during the Cherry Blossom Festival Week. The amenities are world class; the hotel staff is the best I have experienced, every staff person made me feel at home and welcomed. A great spot to have as a homebase from which to explore the sights and/or business. And the view of the Capital... More

We had a excellent experience with the Washington Court. James and all the staff were very helpful to these 1st time to DC travelers, from the initial contact 2 months earlier till we departed. Thanks.

We enjoyed our stay, but the internet description is a tad misleading. We booked months ago and asked for a room with view of capitol as seen on their site- got to look at rooms across the atrium. The lack of a safe in the room was disconcerting. they have one at front desk, but we are paranoid when it... More

My fiancee and I booked a king room at the rack rate over a month ago on the hotel's website, and even called the day of our arrival to let the front desk know that we would be arriving late.

The stay at Washington Court was very good to excellent. Every staff person we encountered from Bell to Front Desk were charming, helpful, and professional. James at the front desk was outstanding! The room was quiet even though it was the closest to the elevator! Nice touch also to have a door on the ice/vending room. We found the bed... More

Located very close to the Capital and Union Station. Housekeeping less than desirable - never seemed to be able to leave us towels. Restaurant is very expensive. We found an alternative right acrossed the street at Billy Goat's Tavern. Basic food, but great prices. Internet is expensive to use. 7 minutes on the lobby computer with ten copies printed out...
