We stayed at the Washington Court Hotel for seven nights at the beginning of April. The hotel is only a couple of blocks from Union Station so access to the Metro, trains and coach trips is great. Union Station also has some good restaurants, especially B. Smiths which is excellent and the Thunder Grill, and also lots of shops, Starbucks etc. However we found other options for eating out in this area limited. The restaurant in the hotel is good, particularly the burgers, and has a lovely balcony area where you can watch what is going on in the foyer of the hotel while you eat! We enjoyed a few breakfasts there and also a couple of evening meals, although the evening menu is a bit limited. The room was very comfortable and the bathroom was large with an excellent shower. I have only given this hotel an average rating because of a couple of negatives. Firstly, we did not find some of the reception staff particularly friendly or helpful. On check in we were told that our booking could not be found after only a cursory look, of course it was there on closer inspection. Also the housekeeping left a bit to be desired. One day I returned from a day out at about 4pm to find that the room had not been serviced. Although housekeeping came up immediately the guy on reception did not even offer me an apology when I complained. Also our bedding was not changed during our entire stay, although it was supposed to be changed every three days. I suppose I should have complained about this. Overall this is a nice hotel in a good location.
