“Great visit to DC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

Great hotel. Visited DC for sightseeing with my adult son. The hotel is in a great location - within walking distance to historic sites, several great bars and restaurants, Georgetown, and 2 metro stops. The staff at the hotel are friendly and helpful. Despite others finding the doormen rude, I found everyone to be polite, helpful, and personable. The staff at the front desk, especially London, were patient with questions, and offered excellent suggestions on dining options. Check in/out was easy and flawless. The rooms (we had a deluxe double) are roomy, quaint, and for the most part clean. The only fault I have is that the floors could have been cleaned better (we found items on the floor - that were not ours). Also, while the beds are very comfortable, the pillows are not. Otherwise, no complaints about the rooms. Room service came in twice during the day to replace towels and touch up the room. Complimentary bottled waters were left each night, which was a plus after walking the city all day. I would definitely stay at this hotel in the future.

Stayed here for a weekend in August. The hotel was close to everything I wanted to do/see and the nearest train was only 2-3 blocks away. Found parking nearby (washingtondc.bestparking.com) for way cheaper than the hotel's $42.50 valet rate which was good. Hotel was very clean and our room was great. The hotel was accommodating in placing us next to a friend that was also staying the same weekend. I would definitely recommend going to eat at Founding Farmers across the street (make a reservation first!). The staff was very nice and helpful: offered to carry bags, held doors open, etc. I would definitely recommend staying here and look forward to staying here again sometime in the future.

The fact that the hotel is part of the Historic Hotels of America added to it's charm. The pillows are large and firm. House keeping didn't have alternative pillows to exchange, so expect a stiff neck if you're used to softer pillows.

Greetings bolts,

Thank you for your feedback. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and in reference to the pillows, we actually do offer a softer pillow that is kept in each guest room inside the closet, also additional pillows can be provided upon request.
So we hope that you will visit us again and now you know that we do offer the softer pillows is more of an incentive.

P.S. We were nominated for Best Historic Hotel and we will know if we win on October 2nd.)

Sincerely,

Corrado Palenzona

This hotel is located a block from Georgetown Washington Univeresity and 5-7 minute walk from the subway station. The biggest plus of this hotel is that it's close to a very nice Wholefood grocery store 5 mintues away where it has a large cafe with lots of seats serving a large breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet, coffee bar, and etc. It's very convenient to get a delicious and healthy breakfast, lunch or dinner from Wholefoods plus any other sundry items. The hotel provided excellent services. After check-in, a staff member came by provided two complimentary bottled water. The room I got this time on the 10th floor has a good size bathroom including a vanity sitting area. The only issue is the AC unit in the vanity area is quite loud and can't be turned off. So one has to close the bathroom door at night to minimize the noise. All hotel staff are very friendly. It's a great value for this location.

Room Tip: 10th floor with a larger bathroom and a vanity area

Spent four days in DC as "nana" to my 4 month old grandson while my daughter attended GWU program. For the price, this hotel is exceptional. within short walks of two subway lines, 3 blocks from White House and literally a block and half from major GWU auditoriums and student center. The staff, doorman included, is exceptionally accommodating and friendly. We had a double room with separate kitchen area (which doubled as baby's crib room), and dressing alcove. It's a boutique style hotel on the European scale...and very charming. It is also surrounded by great places to eat that won't break the bank. We'll stay there again next year!

Room Tip: For business purposes...free wifi was challenging in the room.

5 nights and 6 days at the Hotel Lombardy - and one word to describe the experience - FANTASTIC.
The staff at this hotel are superb, catering to every need of yours, the rooms are old-world charm and really nice and the food is really good.
What's even better for this hotel is that the location is great, close to all the attractions.
I would recommend this hotel to everyone.
