“Nice hotel with lots of character”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

We stayed at the Hotel Lombardy for a quick sightseeing weekend. Excellent customer service, comfortable, clean room, reasonably priced. Our "park view" suite was the perfect set-up for our family of three. Only complaint was the noise from the street at night.

Thank you for your feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. Booking a hotel in the city sometimes can be a bit noisy, but I assure you that most times in this area it is the opposite. We appreciate you and look forward to having you stay with us again.

I booked this hotel direct through their website and got an amazing deal as booked quite far in advance. We just used the hotel as a base for seeing DC and the room had all the facilities we could need. Very clean. Very comfy bed. View from the window was not great, but that didn't bother us. The room even had a little kitchenette with fridge. Coffee maker and safe in room. Location was very central - easily walkable to all the sights, museums and Georgetown. Overall I would recommend this hotel and stay here again (if I can get a good advance deal online).

Recently spent 4 nights in a suite in this great located hotel in DC. Staff very friendly, close to all major attractions including the White House! Would stay here again on a return visit to DC. Was given some great advice on where to eat, try the District Commons just two blocks down from the hotel.

Room Tip: choose a suite on the top floor

I've stayed at this hotel twice on business, both times in cooler months. I'd actually give it three and a half stars. It is not nearly as nice as the Westin, which is only a handful of blocks away, but it is quaint charming, and in a better location.

I've had two rooms at this location: one in a massive suite with a sitting room (probably 1,000 square feet) and one in a regular king room. On both stays, I found the staff incredibly friendly and helpful and the location ideal. Walking distance to all of the places I needed to be during the day, very close to a drugstore, and practically on top of a metro stop.

The water pressure in the shower leaves something (actually a lot) to be desired, and there are no slippers to go with the bathrobe, but on the whole I was comfortable and well tended to. (The heaters do make some noise as well.)

Pros: You get a copy of the Washington Post every morning, and the restaurant has a nice breakfast.

Cons: Old building. Awful in-room coffee.

We were supposed to stay 3 nights, arriving by train from Connecticut. But Hurricane Sandy had other ideas and we finally made it, by car, for only one night before moving on to Charleston to get on trip back on schedule. So we didn't have time to fully investigate the hotel or DC. However in our all-too-brief stay we found the hotel staff enormously friendly and helpful, the room was massive, I'm sure I didn't book a suite but we could have held a party for 50! So we were very happy bunnies.
We got out to have a quick look at the monuments and something to eat before retiring for our early start next day. Slept well.
When we go back to DC, this is where we will stay!

the hotel is located 3 blocks away from the Foggy Bottom metro stop and like 5 blocks from the White house. the location is great, the staff is really friendly and helpful, the room clean and well furnished.
we had a room with view on some office building which made it a little dark during day time but also made it very quiet.
the bed had the tiniest and hardest pillows ever.

What a cute and cozy hotel! Most importantly, it was very clean. The bathroom is all white, as are the bed linens. The room furniture seems older and more typical of a bed and breakfast type place but is very well maintained and adds to the charm. I stay over in D.C every now and then on weekend trips so have tried many area hotels and this one is a gem that is probably better located for those like me staying with small children because of the nearby pharmacy and availability of restaurants. Will definitely stay here again.
