“Great Stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

Hotel is charming and quaint. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Room was very clean. We will definitely stay again. Not sure about breakfast package ....did not appear to be any savings, but the food was excellent. Additionally, the hotel is walking distance from the White House and all the museums. We had a great three days!

When I needed a "get-away" hotel for a three day period...one that would provide me with services that would literally pamper me, I considered a number of possibilities, finally choosing one of Washington, D.C.'s 'unique' hotels, the Hotel Lombardy at the junction of Pennsylvania Ave. and "I" Street. It proved to be an ideal choice. The service could not have been better and the Lombardy Dinning Room served a delicious menu of food unlike your more typical hotel restaurants would provide. They arranged for an 80 minute message witch provided me with a wonderful, restful sleep that night in the hotel's most comfortable beds. All in all, one of my finest hotel stays. I would recommend it with no conditions!

Room Tip: Spring for a deluxe king suite on a high floor (mine was # 806) It was near the elevators but was...

We stayed in Nov, 2013. The hotel is charming and lively. Great facilities: nice and big rooms, with a small kitchen. Beautiful entrance and great staff. The location is the best: close to a metro station and Georgetown.
The price is not so good, but for Washington is fair.

I checked in very early at 10:45 AM and they had a room available for me. Great start! Very nice and friendly staff in every way. Easy walk to Georgetown and, in the other direction, to the White House. Very clean rooms, lots of pillows, and a cute dressing table and chair in the large bathroom. The restaurant is small but features big windows and excellent food and service. My only complaint is that the shower was a little old and the faucets were difficult to navigate. Also, slippery. That aside, it is a really charming place in a great location. DC has many chain hotels and very expensive hotels. The Hotel Lombardy is a great choice and good value.

Room Tip: I had a room along the side, in the back, on the 11th floor and it was very quiet.

Check-in: checked in bit early, after bit of a waiting, we got an upgrade to a Suite...Wow!

Very courteous staff......valet parking was available at $35 / night (parking at the adjacent building's basement)...rooms are very comfortable and with good layout (suite)...bathroom fittings are not classy, but ok, only hitch was there was no full length mirror in the suite; may could use backside of the storage room door for the mirror.
Didn't dine at the hotel...there are plenty of options at a walking distance.

Overall, very good stay option for DC sight-seeing (most of the DC attractions are near-by e.g. White-house & GWU about 1/2 mile away) and adds to the DC experience since this is one of the heritage property!

We stayed at Hotel Lombardy last weekend and had a lovely stay. We booked a King and a room with double beds. We were traveling as a family and found the hotel met all our needs. The King room was a bit tight, but the bathroom was very large and sunny. The room with double beds was much more spacious. The hotel from top to bottom is very clean. The lounge is especially inviting and cozy. The location,,,perfect. Just across the street was Founding Farmers a great food to table restaurant and Paul, a French bakery. Only 4 or 5 blocks from the White House and a few blocks from 2 metro stations. Most importantly you can't beat the price! Also 2 blocks away is a parking garage for half the price of valet.

This weekend was my second visit, as I was well-satisfied on my first. This trip, I brought my wife for a city-visit. She and I were very comfortable. This is a very well restored and preserved older hotel. You get the good- large rooms with high ceilings and thick walls, and none of the bad - simply no complaints from us. The linen is lush, and the bath and shower are large and nice.
This hotel is located in Gold Triangle. During the week it is a financial district, although it grows a little quiet at night (a good thing). It's just a few blocks to Dupont Circle, and the Circulator Bus to Georgetown stops on the corner for easy trips to the evening's fun. It is halfway between Farragut West Metro and Foggy Bottom GWU Metro (three short blocks either way), so getting around on the Blue line (which serves the airport AND Smithsonian) is easy.
We liked the Peruvian across the street, El Chalon, and nieghboring Conn ave is an eating street.
We found the staff both friendly and professional, and the room to be impeccably clean.
The hotel has style, class, a bit of historical feeling, and a practical location.
This is my preferred address in this town. It's a bit outside the mass-tourist area (a good idea in DC!), but access to everything is easy. I also find excellent value.
I'll be back.

Room Tip: high floors at rear will be quieter.
