I'm reluctant to share this review, as I'm concerned about what might happen when this treasured secret in the heart of DC goes viral.
This hotel is an absolute gem near the Dupont Circle area of D.C. The location is perfect, the staff is enthusiastically welcoming, and accommodations are wonderful. It is true that you may get not get the "hotel chain" experience of lodging, but that is partly what makes it so wonderful. It is European in its style, welcoming in its tone, relaxing in its tenor, exceedingly reasonable in its price.
So if you're visiting DC, and looking for a smaller, more intimate, more reasonable hotel experience then by all means check into the Normandy and allow yourself to get acquainted with the cozy, serene, and friendly setting. If you're visiting DC and would rather be treated like a number, a statistic, a cold cog in the wheel, then by all means pay more to stay more in one of the other hotels around the corner.
Just careful with whom you share this... I want this treasure to still have openings next time I visit!
