My mother and I were in town this past weekend for a rally and for some sightseeing and stayed at the Washington Court Hotel. I was pleased with the overall service. The view we had from our room wasn't great, but we were only there to sleep so it didn't really matter. The rooms were spacious and the beds really... More

Arrived around 11 AM and gave the bags to the bell man, Ricardo, to hold until later when the room would be ready. Ricardo was very polite and helpful. He gave us a map and suggested places to eat. After roaming around all day we came back around 5 to check in to our room. We were told the room... More

First of all, the check-in line was 20 minutes wait. Once we got to the desk, our reservation for 2 rooms with 2 beds in each was changed to 1 room with a kbed and 1 room with a pull-out couch and a rollaway bed. Pulling the sheets back on the King bed revealed obviously that they were not clean... More

Overall the hotel and staff were nice but there were some cleanliness issues.The doorpeople were very friendly but the conceierge was not helpful with booking tours in the area. The online reservation system was not user friendly at all and the reservation staff were completely unhelpful. Charges for computer usage and printing were astronomical!! But as for cleanliness, while the... More

The hotel is very clean. Close to the Capitol and Union Station. If you choose to be energetic and walk all the way to the Washington Monument your in for a very long walk to say the least. The monument tours were close by at Union Station. It does take some getting used to finding your way around the streets... More

The overall experience was somewhat positive and somewhat negative. I will just outline the aspects of the hotel and positives/negatives. Check-in: The staff at the front door were kind and nice, however at the check-in there was one person who just basically ignored us. The other employee at the desk was nice. We arrived at 4pm (the check in time)... More

We got a decent deal through Hotwire and took a chance. The location of the hotel is great for the Capitol and Union Station. We found the hotel to be generally well-kept, with a pleasant enough decor. Our corner room was the perfect size for two, and was not crowded, even with a king bed. The staff that we interacted...

I booked this hotel on Expedia for $99/night. Overall average stay. The location was convenient to Union Station and for sightseeing purposes. Valet parking is a steep $43/day. Fortunately, we found a $10 lot about a block away. The website claims that the hotel was renovated in 2009. If you consider new carpet and furniture a renovation then so be... More

I had my doubts when I walked in. The lobby looked a bit overdone to me, several levels, chi chi artwork behind the desk. But within minutes my attitude changed. The staff was so welcoming, in a relaxed, authentic way. Check in was fast and efficient. The good feeling continued when I opened the door to a spacious, clean and... More
