“Great Hotel - Great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We took our children & grandkids to DC for Spring Break and had 4 rooms at The Liaison that we got over priceline. We were thrilled with the hotel & staff & location. We called ahead & they reserved our rooms on the same floor, queen beds we requested & adjoining rooms.

Dear dcwall,

How fun! Grandchildren are so such special blessings and we are proud that you were able to enjoy your precious time with them with us at The Liaison Capitol Hill. I'm happy to read that our staff was able to keep you all on the same floor, in addition to joining the rooms. We hope to see you next Spring Break!

I don't live far from DC however, I planned a night of drinking and didn't want to drive so I booked the Liaison Capitol Hill and was extremely impressed. I've stayed at Affinia hotels' before, which is why I chose to stay here, and I must say this has been my favorite thus far.
The rooms are decorated in modern decor and are very cozy however it could use a bit more lighting. I loved the ambiance of this hotel and the rooms. For a boutique hotel, it had all the bells and whistles that you would expect from a major hotel chain.
The front desk staff were very courteous and attentive. We partook in Sunday Brunch in the hotel restaurant "Art and Soul" and the food was DELICIOUS. I highly recommend this brunch, and hotel, while you're in the DC area.

Room Tip: If you're in town on Sundays, stop by Art and Soul for Brunch.

This is my second stay at The Liaison. The rooms are very elegant and is located a short 10 minute cab ride from National/Reagan Airport. Their restaurant has a southern inspire cuisine and is delicious!!! The National Mall and all museums are nearby. My room had a coffee maker, ironing table, and internet access (they charge a fee, but was free as part of my business meeting). Overall a great place to stay with an elegant feel to it.

We stayed for 3 nights in February. Chose this hotel as it was close to Union Station and easy location for the museums, mall and monuments. Room was very clean, very comfy beds, bathroom had nice products although it was quite small. Would have been nice to have tea and coffee provided in the room. Staff at front desk nice and helpful. Not many restaurants in this location so you'd be better off staying elsewhere if this is what you are after but as we wanted to be within walking distance of the station and museums it worked well for us.

Dear Lepa M,

What museums did you enjoy the most? The weather was rather mild this winter, which makes strolls down the National Mall quite nice with a cup of hot chocolate. I'm happy to read that our staff was friendly and helpful as well.

We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Best,

After my initial experience with the booking agent, I was concerned about my stay at this hotel. However, when I arrived I quickly discovered this little boutique is probably one of the best gems that DC has to offer. We stayed as a part of a big group (Family Reunion). Although this is a boutique we were all wonderfully treated and comfortable in the environment. The staff was extremely friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. My husband and I along with our two children (ages 6 and 1) stayed in a double deluxe room. We were quite comfortable. The views from our room were great. My parents opted for a suite. Although the suite provided a separate living area, and an additional bathroom, it was not worth the nearly triple price tag; albeit trendy and swanky. Their bed was a trundle and unlike ours not very comfortable and extremely low to the ground. Our bed was delightful; the pillow menu offered by the Liaison only enhanced the already comfortable accommodations. The hotel is close (walking distance) to Union Station, the Mall, and many other sightseeing experiences. The hotel restaurant was delicious and the mini cake desserts offered by room service—sinful.

Room Tip: There is a roof top bar, so I would stay in the floor second from the top.

Dear Onealisia,

Wow! Thanks so much. What a compliment to say that our little boutique is 'one of the best gems that DC has to offer.' That makes our entire team feel so honored. And yes! Those mini cake desserts (otherwise known as baby cakes) are very delicious! I can't get enough of the chocolate ones!

I stayed at this hotel for a couple days while my organization held a meeting in DC and was very impressed with what they had to offer. Location wise this hotel is wonderful, right in the shadow of the Capitol Building. It's easy enough to walk to the National Mall from the hotel, or to Gallery Place/China Town - approximately five or six blocks in different directions to each. If walking is not your thing this hotel is right in between two Metro stops - Union Station and Judiciary Square - both of which are on the Red line.

As for the hotel itself the room was very nice, spacious, and had a trendy feel to it. The room does not sacrifice comfort for style, however, as the bed was extremely comfortable. Most importantly the room was very clean. There is a small fitness center, that has most of the basics and there is a pool though I didn't get to see it.

I was at this hotel for a meeting, and the hotel handled our needs for this meeting very well. The room had a perfect set up for the size of the meeting we had (about 40 people), and the staff were very attentive and very helpful in making sure everything went smoothly. The hotel restaurant was under construction and closed while we were there, but the food that the hotel made for our meeting was wonderful.

Overall I'd strongly recommend this hotel for both tourists, and those who are planning on hosting a meeting in the District. It's a little on the pricy side, but no more so than anything comparable in that part of town, and you get good bang for your buck.

If the location fits the area of town you want to be in, I recommend the Liaison Capitol Hill. The bed was comfy, the bathrooms are nice, everything worked well in my room and was clean.

Nice stay overall.
