The Washington Court Hotel is the perfect location. We could walk to Union Station in less than 10 minutes and the Capital within 15 minutes ( and that is not running ) All sightseeing trolleys are at Union Station. Staff could not have been more helpful. Nice to have valet parking. Great Irish Bar and Restaurant around the corner

The hotel appeared to be very nice from the outside and from the lobby. The staff were more than courteous and the facilities seemed to meet the needs for our gathering. Once upstairs, a look at the details reveal a hotel that needs to upgrade/renovate their rooms. There was no fridge or safe, and the closet in the hallway was... More

I stayed in this hotel while visiting my future daughter-in-law. I was trying it out to see if I wanted to stay here for the wedding in September since it is near the church and reception. I was so amazed. It looks so much better in person than on line. Everyone was very friendly and helpful from the minute I... More

The hotel is only a few short blocks from union station and the capital making it ideal for walking to those locations. Restaurant food was reasonable but pricey. Desk personnel were not real helpful in handling specific needs as requested. Don't plan on using business center without expecting to spend a lot of money ($10 minimum for 10 minute internet...

I stayed here over Memorial Day weekend with a group. The staff were incredibly helpful since I had never been to DC before. Everyday they gave me directions, suggestions, etc. There is a starbucks across the street from the hotel, which is always a bonus :) And Union Station (which has 60-70 shops and restaurants) is about 2 blocks away....

I have lived on Capitol Hill for 15 years and have never thought to recommend this hotel to visitors because there are other well known hotel chains nearby, such as the Hyatt and a Kimpton property (Hotel George). But this week I discovered that the Washington Court Hotel is a great option on the Hill. Our neighborhood suffered a multi-day... More

This is an ok hotel in a pretty good location but we found the beds really small and uncomfortable. The rooms were missing 2 important things for us, a fridge and a safe in the room and for those reasons we would choose a different hotel. Wifi is also very pricey however the staff at this hotel were very accommodating... More

My week-end began with the hectic traffic always experienced when driving to DC. However, upon arrival at the Washington Court Hotel, the warm, friendly greeting provided by the bell staff started my mini-vacation on a positive note. My car door was opened for me, and I was welcomed with a smile and a bright, "Welcome to the Washington Court Hotel!... More

Stayed at a competitor for first 4 nights and then switched to the Washington Court and first chance. The difference was extremely pleasing. Room was spacious and the view of the Capitol was awesome. Did I mention the bed? After busy action packed days it was a pleasure to lay on one of the most comfortable beds around. Bounced out... More
