“Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

This hotel is situated near the Museums and government buildings, as well as shopping and restaurants. When we were checking in there was a large group ahead of us but the staff just asked us to come forward and it only took minutes to get a room and answer questions about eating and getting around Washington. The staff were not too friendly but were efficient and when we didn't have towels left in the room, supplied them immediately.
We had made the reservation in advance and were paying quite high rates but when someone needed a room immediately, the rate was $150 lower. Quite a difference!
The breakfast area was large, with different size tables allowing for large groups or singles. There were many TV's showing the news. The food was excellent, hot and cold items presented in an attractive way, fruit, yogurts, juices and of course, the signature waffles.
Our room was small but nicely decorated and lots of light.
We would stay there again.

Room Tip: Corner room was all windows (with great shades) so lots of daylight and interesting views.

1. Excellent Breakfast- fruit, yogurt, juice, cereal, scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage, etc.
2. Outstanding friendly staff.
3. Daily weather report posted in elevator.
4. Breakfast room is an excellent retreat at night to watch TV or play games.
5. Efficient use of space in rooms. Rooms are small- a bit tight for family of 4, but doable.
6. Older building with new updates.
7. Bedding is very good.
8. Rooms on the front of building have small balconies and sun, but I would opt to get a room away from the noise of the busy street next time.
9. We bought the Smarttrip card for Metro/buses at the airport- savings on fares. The unlimited may be best if you travel a lot.
10. Business and travel guests.
11. Excellent access to the National Mall via direct Metro bus service on 13th and 14th.

We figured out that this was the only two star hotel offering a breakfast on priceline. Raz is excellent and a hands on manager.

I recently stayed here for two nights, and could hardly believe this was a Comfort Inn. My queen room would have been a bit tight for 2 people, but that's pretty typical of city hotels. It was very nicely furnished, spotlessly clean, and had all the amenities I needed - safe, fridge, desk, reading chair and coffee-making. Anisha and the parking team very helpful and friendly, and the breakfast was good. Wifi worked well. Only complaint - the elliptical machine needs a minor tune-up. You can walk to the National Mall (in comfortable shoes), and this part of 13th ST was very quiet. Will definitey stay here again.

Room Tip: My room was 3rd floor, street side - no problem with traffic noise

I stayed at the Comfort inn/Convention center during my sons spring break. The location was "excellent" along with the staff. We arrived early and Raj was able to check us into our room. Overall I was pleased with the rooms, staff, location, breakfast, and price. My son loved the crispy bacon on our last day and the juice keep up the good work. To Raj and his staff keep doing a great job and we will be back soon.

Thanks,
Room 802

Room Tip: We had room 802 and loved it

We stayed at the Confort inn/Convention center Easter weekend. The hotel is walking distance from the National Mall even for a family with small children. Raj, at the front desk was very attentive and helped us get our bus tour going. The kids were excited about the waffles for breakfast and I was overjoyed with the 24 hour coffee!! Our room and the hotel were super clean and even though it was one of the smaller hotels we have stayed at with quite a small room... we enjoyed our room on the third floor right accross the elevator. (never heard a thing) would come back to this hotel, great bargain!
One happy family!

I stayed for a week at this location - very convenient to Convention Center/other parts of DC.
The staff were very friendly - specially Raj. They could improve the breakfast - but I guess that is what you get at Comfort Inn.

Raj and staff were extremely helpful and friendly. A great place and location to lodge in DC. Location is very convenient to DC’s Convention Center and metro stops. Rooms are comfortable, beds and bedding are clean and well kept. Great value for a DC hotel.
