“AMTRAK HOTEL”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Got off AMTRAK and had no trouble finding the shuttle to the hotel. It was a bit farther from Union Station but it was next to the railway tracks. Shuttle was handy and the price was right. Staff were friendly and helpful. I would think twice about walking around the neighbourhood at night and did not see any nearby amenities. Staff suggested the shuttle to Union Station as the best place for a meal so I might be right in my caution. Breakfast was good and the room was more than adequate.

1. Good Front Desk.

2. Good BreakFast(Breads, Waffle, Eggs,Juices,coffy,etc.)

3. Rooms are Good. Though they are bit outdated in the interior deco's. Hotel can focus on laying new carpers and redoing their interior.

4. close to union station.But the surrounding of the hotels are not great. suggest people not to walk late in the night.

5. Hotel is closer to the amtrack rail tracks. But didnt hear much of the noices from the train

6. Overall a better experience. Good Hotel with all the ameneties at a low price.

Suggestion for the hotel. Redo the carpet in the Hallways and the rooms. Repainting and Interior Deco's in the room could make the hotel look much more better.

My stay at this hotel encountered a few problems and I will not stay here again. When I tried to get in the room (7th floor) the key would not work. took 45 minutes to finally get into room. Was awakened/scared by banging on the door at 6:30 AM.
Entrance to hotel is wide enough for one car there for unable to stop to unload bags at front door! I would not suggest this hotel, only as a last resort!

My apologies to you and your family for the disturbances during your stay as well as the inoperable door lock. I can assure you even our housekeeping department has been informed not to disturb our guests before a certain time. We want it to be convenient for you to unload and check into the hotel, although our entrance is narrow we have 55 passenger tour buses that pull in front of the hotel so I'm certain we can accommodate your car. I hope that we can make the next experience a better one!

A quiet hotel which would benefit from a redecoration. But I didn't go on holiday to check out other painters work! The breakfast had a good choice of hot and cold food. In the evenings we ordered takeaways to the room. The lobby is spacious and there are 2 lifts. Our room was large with AC, a microwave and had a fridge, so you might want to bring ear plugs if that would bother you, not that it was loud . We didn't go out at night so I can't comment on that. But the shuttle bus was handy, taking people to Union station every half hour, traffic depending, a good centre for site seeing. A couple of times the bus was full and the odd time it was just us. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Our room did look out on to the railway line, this only woke me up on one occasion. I think that wo...

Very nice lobby, great free hot breakfast with many choices, updated room with micro and fridge. Shuttle to Union Station so you can get anywhere, large rooms. Only drawbacks are outdated hallways and seedy neighborhood. You wouldnt want to walk around here but who does that anyway when they go to DC? You can save at least 100-125 per night if you stay here, two miles from Union Station as opposed to downtown. Highly recommend!

I was a guest at the Comfort Inn from sun 5-5-13 to fri 5-10-13. My trip was booked through Funjet Vacations. Upon arrival, we were upgraded to a suite at no increase in price. room 517. Check in was quick and staff was very friendly. The staff was helpful in recomending tours to take and our room was very clean with no complaints. There is a daily shuttle to union station in the morning up to 11am and after 5pm to 1015 pm which was very convenient to us. Train noise consisted of high speed Amtrak trains zooming by. the were not blowing their whistles and the train noise was minimal. Hotel was well maintained and the free breakfast was very good with eggs, meat, waffles, etc. Blanca, the breakfst hostess did an excellant job of keeping things clean. Dennis at the front desk also did a great jobof assisting us. The neighborhood is a little run down, buts its not that bad. Fast food and convenience store were about 4 blocks away which we walked to several times. I don't think I would walk this at night time, but during the day, we felt safe and were never hassled. If you are looking for a 5 star hotle with bar/restaurant, dont stay here . Ifyou are looking for a good clean hotel to stay at while touring washington dc, this is an excellant choice as their prices were much better thans some of the other hotels. We enjoyed our stay here while touring DC, yes, I would stay here again. Mary

This hotel is not 5 star but it is good because it is not as expensive as the other hotels in washington. Also the breakfast is not bad and the hotel has a free shuttle that takes you to Union Station and from there you can walk to the major sights of Washington. the rooms have no wardrobes, beds are comfortable and the bathrooms very neat. I definitely recommend it for a few days.
