I stayed here for one night only after reading other reviews, and after receiving a really good rate. Staff were generally friendly and helpful - special mention must be made of the doorman, who was exceptionally friendly and helpful and not the least bit condescending. The registration staff were, well, reserved and offered no help or information. The first thing... More

Landed at the Washington Court for 3 nights in July with a winning bid on Priceline. Most of the reviews I found seemed older and somewhat negative so thought I would add my thoughts. First of all, staff was stellar (and believe me when I admit that I am the type of traveller who expects good service in a business... More

I have stayed at the Washington Court Hotel twice, in February 2010 and July 2010. I would strongly suggest someone staying there to request a view of the US Capitol, instead of the interior facing rooms. Try to get at least up to floor 12, as there could be visual obstructions at lower level. The hotel is nicely appointed, has... More

My sister and I stayed for four nights in this hotel. All of the staff was kind and helpful! We forgot to sign our check for breakfast the first day, but they didn't seem too bothered and said they would get us to sign the next day when we told them that evening! The front desk took the time to... More

We visited 7/7-7/10. All the staff we met were extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is located about 2 1/2 blocks from Union Station. At Union Station there are many restaurants and some shopping. The Metro (subway) system operates out of there and is a very efficient and inexpensive way to get around town. Many of the tours operate out... More

Stayed here for a few nights arriving on July 5th. I arrived by Amtrak which was great because the train station is only a few blocks away from the hotel. The hotel itself was great but its mostly a business type hotel and not for people who want to go out late at night. A little about the hotel experience:... More

This hotel was a treat to find for us. We booked their weekend special and received free parking and a food & beverage discount. The location was great for sightseeing the many attractions of DC. Easy access to the Metro and within walking distance to Union Square. The hotel staff could not have been better to us from the doorman... More

I've stayed at this hotel a half dozen times in recent years. There are some real pluses and real minuses. But, the very worst thing is the terrible internet connection....this is a real issue if you're attempting to stay here for business. For $10/day you get the privilege to have something that's similar to your 1992 dial-up connection, except now... More

Have stayed here on business many times over the past five years. Service is consistently underwhelming and the price consistently high. On my most recent visit I waited five hours to check-in to my room and others were waiting longer than myself! Came by front desk at 3 pm to check on status of room availability-- in lieu of time...

My group was the size of 10, 5 being seniors, going to D.C. to visit the memorials. This hotel goes the extra mile in every situation you could imagine. The amazing customer service and consideration is felt from the top of the management to the door men greeting you with a smile when you arrive. The folks running the front... More
