We stayed 5 nights in the Liaison booked through Virgin - June 2013. Location is absolutely great - just a short walk to the Capitol Building and 10 minutes max to Union Station - Perfect. You can also pick up the hop on/off tour bus outside the front door. My experience of the hotel was as expected though I was disappointed the brochure talked of the paintings of ex presidents and Winston C / Maggie T in the foyer but they had re-decorated and taken then down to be replaced with a hideous piece of modern art representing the city. We were on a quiet floor apart from the odd door slamming. Rooms were very stylish and modern though the bathroom was sooooo tiny. Spotlessly clean throughout but the pool area needs upgrading - Furniture a little tired and needs parasols for those who just want to sit with a drink. As always kids in the hotel pool take over - This is not a hotel for kids and parents if you wanted to have a pool holiday take your kids somewhere else - inflatables in the pool irritate me as this pool was more like a dipping pond. I don't need screaming kids on a hot roof top. Michelle on concierge duty was lovely and helpful - She even arranged my shuttle back to the airport. I would definitely recommend the hotel for a short trip but anything longer than a week I would suggest you chose a place that has a bigger lounge to relax in and pool. We enjoyed it though and felt it was good value except for our awful almost raw chicken in the over priced restaurant. Only used it once and never went there again - there are cheaper eateries nearby and serve great food / drinks at reasonable prices.

Our recent redesign completely transformed all guest rooms and corridors featuring modern lighting and sleek furnishings, creating an ambiance of timeless, contemporary living. The décor is inspired by our location in the heart of Washington, DC, highlighting the prominence of the capital city and its political landscape through bold colors. The result, in addition to a newly, renovated DC boutique hotel, is a sophisticated hot spot for politicians and the like to gather and socialize after a long day of tending to the affairs of our nation, providing guests with a powerful connection to the city as well as an urban hideaway away from prying eyes. The rooms feature flat screen TVs, Wi-Fi, iHome docks, modern furnishings, upgraded signature Affinia bedding and remodeled bathrooms. The hallways have been refurbished with new carpeting, wall decor and lighting to match the new guestroom décor and offer a transition between the buzz downstairs and the privacy upstairs.

The Smithsonian, the National Mall, Union Station, and dozens of the country’s most visited museums and monuments are within walking distance. The Capitol Hill hotel is both a powerful bond to the nation’s capital and a comfortable escape as well.
