“Book your DC trip at the Hotel Lombardy!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

Love,Love,Love this hotel. The sweet manager Corado made you feel like you were coming home.
The price was certainly right. The building is such and oldy but a goody.Charming hallways great artwork on the walls.

We enjoyed the bellhops rushing to help your every need.

Mohammad from the hotel cafe is precious.

Nathan the bars leader is fun with tons of great ideas where to go how to get there.

Very clean room, teeny tiny but we were never in it, worked for us.

The location was a few blocks from the White House, tons of places to choose from for meals.
Book your stay , you won't forget it!

Room Tip: I bet a higher floor would have quite a view!

The hotel is approximately 5 minutes walk to blue/orange metro line, 10-ish to white house, and 20 minutes to Lincoln memorial. Whole foods and CVS are also within 5 minutes walk. Descent restaurants close by (although surprisingly many close quite early during the week). So overall the location was great.

Price is relative of course, but during independence week this was priced quite well given how well it is reviewed overall. We were not looking for 5 star treatment - just comfortable, clean, safe, convenient which this is on all accounts. Cleaning staff actually came twice (once later in the day to make sure everything was to our satisfaction). The beds were comfortable and there were approximately 10 pillows so we were both able to find one to our liking. The room did NOT have a view though (we don't really spend much time in the room so not an issue for us). They upgraded us to a room with a smallish eating area which was nice. The hotel is starting to show its age but they do seem to keep up on repairs for the most part. Our only real complaints were that the shower did not drain well - by the time we were done showers, water was ankle deep - and one of the two elevators was very small (but we never needed to wait very long for elevators at any time).

Overall I would recommend this hotel and would definitely stay again for the right price.

What a wonderful little hotel. The room was clean, the staff was so incredible and accommodating. They bent over backwards to make our stay great. The bed was comfortable. My Only wish is that they had a full length mirror in the room. Called down for extra towels and they were at the door in less than 5 minutes. The hotel is 3 blocks from the metro. Highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed here for two nights in July. The hotel reception staff seemed like they did not want to be there. Neither of the girls smiled and they spoke in a disinterested, monotone voice.

Three of us stayed in the two double bed room and had plenty of space for our luggage. The door to our bathroom did not close completely. Someone was sent up immediately to fix it. But after a couple times of opening and closing the bathroom door, the problem came back and we couldn't close it completely again. We just left it since we weren't staying long.

Shower is fantastic! However, our tub did not drain fast enough and we were standing in ankle deep water within minutes. I had to turn off the water in the middle of my shower to let the tub drain.

The second night of our stay, both card keys to our room did not work. We had to go down to reception and wait in line to get them reactivated. This was quite annoying after a full day of walking in the hot weather and all we wanted to do was get back to our room and get off our feet. The reception girl gave no explanation as to why the cards were deactivated in the first place.

The best thing about this hotel would be the location. We were within walking distance to all the monuments, you could even walk over to the Chinatown area.

Checked in the desk staff kind'a snippy. The bell hops and door people very nice. The room was fine, the bathroom was small but clean and usable. There was a weird little kitchen thingy that was useless except for the honor bar and basket of candy. It has been so long since we have seen this, the kids didn't realize that they were eating a bag of M&M that cost 6$.

I am going to try a different hotel up the street next time I am in town, but If I don't like the new one I would come back to this one.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a view... ours had none

We booked the Hotel Lombardy as a last minute long weekend couples get for my wife and me. The reviews on Trip Advisor we positive so we were confident in our choice. The building is old so you know that there will be quarks; nothing major. The rooms are on the small side but the separate kitchen (fridge/sink only) and dressing/vanity rooms help make the suite much less cramped than just the bedroom area. We found the staff to very attentive and helpful. This was a very nice stay, great location and at a very good price. We would return to the Hotel Lombardy again.

Really enjoyed our stay here. The hotel is an historical building. The room is tastefully decorated and very comfortable. It has a small but adequate gym. We had a street view room and even on the 3rd floor street noise was no problem. The staff were lovely. The Venetian room was a lovely place for a drink. The Cafe Lombardy was really good and our waiter, Mohammed, was brilliant. The hotel is conveniently located to the memorial park and the White House. Founding Fathers restaurant is just across the road and is a good place for breakfast - very reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend.
