The Hamilton was perfect! Staff was super helpful, going out of their way to get us connecting rooms. The location was amazing - a few blocks from the White House and a quick walk to Georgetown. Rooms were clean and in great condition. We will definitely stay there again!

Dear travelnylady,

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. Location is a very important thing when travelling and we definitely have a great location right in the heart of Washington DC. The other very important thing is ensuring that the hotel you choose has a staff that loves to go above and beyond to ensure that their guests are satisfied. And it appears they did that to ensure that you had connecting rooms.

Thank you again and we all look forard to you return.

I stayed at the hotel for business. Everything was at a high level of excellence. Service was perfect. Staff seemed very interested to help us get where we needed to go and were always smiling. Food was excellent but pricey in the hotel although the evening bar food at happy hour was topnotch and of excellent quality. The seafood tacos, ahi tuna, and burgers were great. I would stay again.

I work at a hotel, so I can be a bit critical when we travel. However, our experience here was great! It was my birthday and our first night away from our baby, so we wanted it to go well. We arrived early to drop off our luggage, not expecting to be able to check in early. Joseph, at the front desk, was extremely helpful. He got us a room on the 10th floor and it was beautiful. My only complaint was that we were hoping for a great view but got one of only a couple of rooms that has a sort of concrete barrier outside of the window. We could still see the park beside the hotel and the Washington Monument in the distance, but you had to look between the pillars.

We had drinks in the bar (which were very pricey) and the brunch on Sunday morning. Brunch was well worth the experience! It consisted of a variety of fruit, biscuits and gravy, omelets, shrimp, bagels, lox, sausage, bacon, pancakes, french toast and more!

This is now our "go to" hotel when we visit DC.

Room Tip: If you want a good view, make sure your room doesn't have the concrete barrier outside of the wi...

Dear thelasteast,

Thank you very much for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. We are very happy to see that we are now your “go to” hotel here in DC. We of course know how much that means coming from another hospitality industry professional.

I would personally like to thank you for the information about your room as I am the Joseph that checked you in, being an historic hotel, we have many very unique rooms and it appears that you were in one of those and I have now had the opportunity to go and see that room to see what the view looks like.

We all look forward to being at your service once again when your travels bring you back to Washington DC.

I stayed for 4 days for the second time and was pleased that I had come again to this hotel. The hotel has a pleasant character and not a typical of modern 4 star hotels. Whilst I did not check out the history the hotel is a renovation od an old hotel and has a charm not seen in modern hotels. The room was very comfortable, great bed, nicely furnished and with the normal facilities one would expect. The wi-Fi was a bit patchy in the room and much better in the foyer or restaurant and bar. The staff were particularly helpful and the hotel very well located for my meetings at the World Bank - $7 cab ride and not too far to walk either. The restaurant was very good both for breakfast and dinner.

Room Tip: My room did not have a good outlook this time - ask for overlooking the square opposite.

Dear aquarianmark,

You review is greatly appreciated aquarianmark. That charm that you mention is something that we most certainly love about our hotel, being a member of Historic Hotels of America is definitely a distinguished feature that we are very proud of. We strive for our hotel to be the place where history inspires modern elegance.

Of course you can have the nicest hotel in the world and it wouldn't mean anything if you didn't have a staff that truly cares and has a passion to serve and we're very happy to see that you found our staff so helpful.

We all look forward to being at your service once again when you return to Washington DC.

This hotel benefited from a renovation about a year ago and rooms and decor are fresh and inviting. Like many city hotels, rooms differ widely. All are suitable for an individual business traveler some would be tight for a couple or family. If what is outside the window is important ask for a room overlooking K Street or 14th Street. I've stayed at the hotel from time to time since 2003 and never encountered an issue of substance. Rooms are quiet. Great location for this area of K Street and I Street. Only a 4 block walk from the White House and a couple more blocks to the Mall. If planning a meeting at the hotel, check out the proposed meeting room. Some can feel a bit closed in. Al Fresco dining at the hotel restaurant, 1425 K is a delight in Spring, Summer or Fall.
