“Value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

I stayed at the Quincy in February whilst on business in Washington. The Lobby of the hotel is small but practical. The check in was quick and efficient and the staff friendly and welcoming my room was clean, with a comfortable bed and coffee making facilities. Some areas of the hotel need refurbishment, but what hotel doesn’t have areas that need some work. Downside was parking my car in the garage opposite the hotel and not realising that the car park closes for the weekend, so if I had needed the car it would have been a problem. Overall a value for money experience in a capital city hotel. For the location I would have paid 30% more in London.

I loved my stay at The Quincy for business travel. The room was very large, updated and tasteful with a large dressing area. The location was great, near lots of cafes and restaurants. The staff recommended Rumor's around the corner for dinner and it exceeded all our expectations. The steak was wonderful and the Peanut Butter cheesecake fabulous. The staff at the Quincy was very attentive and helpful. What I really appreciated was that the Quincy was an upscale hotel with a very small lobby. It was a bit of a relief from the cavernous lobbies of many good hotels. One couch and some chairs made it easy to find someone you were meeting with, no roaming looking for reception or elevators. I would love to stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the back are most likely quieter than those facing heavily trafficked L Street.

We stayed at the Quincy for 3 nights recently but I was bowled away weeks before when I received an email inquiry from the reservation staff asking if I had anything I particularly wanted or needed for my stay - I had never had such a contact before. I was pleasantly amazed. I mainly said some sort of nice view which, due to where they are, is difficult = but we got a room on a top floor and it was just fine. The desk and bell staff were pleasant and helpful and very accommodating.

The room was clean, well appointed, large, included a minikitchen and all the usual amenities. It's well located to walk almost anywhere and there are plenty of places to eat at through out the area. This is a highly recommended hotel and if returning to DC I'd stay there again.

Room Tip: As for a top floor to avoid some of the noise and to have some sunlight. We were on the 9th and it...

The Quincy Hotel was a charm to stay at. The room was modern and very clean reminding me of home. Larry one of the attendants at the hotel should be a manager! If he isn't already he should be. He made my stay absolutely wonderful and so did the rest of the staff!! People like Greg and others were perfect hosts to my family and they at times were like family or great friends. It would be my pleasure to stay there anytime and I thank the owners of the Quincy for making a wonderful atmosphere for hotel guests at such a wonderful rate per night!

I've stayed at the Quincy more than ten times now. The rooms are very large, beds are super comfortable. Bathrooms are clean and everything works. Unstocked fridge is great for stashing water or leftovers. While it doesn't have a gym, room service or a bar, it is literally within 5 blocks from fifty bars/ restaurants and within one block of at least a dozen if 5 blocks is too far. In fact is is within a few blocks of everything you might need - 2 of the best bookstores in town, coffee shops, bakeries, restaurants, spas, clothing boutiques and of course the metro and circulator. Short walk to Dupont Circle, to Georgetown and major tourist attractions. It is also an very, safe hotel - I travel alone on business fairly often and this is a major issue in a city like DC. The staff is terrific - totally great attitude and will get you a taxi or a car for hire or help with any other issues. Their in-house online booking system is very reliable and their prices are in line with other hotels in this kind of convenient downtown location. DC is one of the those towns where hotel prices can go up astronomically depending on how much volume they have - I find the Quincy to be far more reasonable when others, including or maybe especially places like the Capital Hilton have gone off the deep end. Ask for a top floor room - they are quieter. Try Chopt or Sweet Greens, both around the corner if you need inexpensive, healthy take out made with local ingredients.

Room Tip: Higher floors are quieter.

I simply echo what many others have said. The Quincy's staff are courteous and attentive - from booking to checking out. They answer questions with good information, give you a call when someone is on the way to your room with a delivery, go out of their way to get what you need.. in an easygoing, friendly, sincere way. Great. The rooms are really large - I haven't seen them all, but the rooms facing L street fit a king bed, a lounge, big tv, large chest of drawers, big desk.. with plenty of space left to do an in-room yoga session if you're so inclined. The kitchen facilities are a nice touch. The bathroom could stand an update, but is completely fine. Great access to the monuments and sites, and close enough to Dupont, Georgetown and beyond. I feel at home in this hotel, would stay again, and recommend to anyone who doesn't need luxury, but appreciates great service, spacious, comfortable rooms in a central location. Oh - they also have great bedding - soft duvets, nice sheets, and excellent, absorbent large towels.

Room Tip: Pick a room facing L street for size.
