“Resort in need of a face lift”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2009

Lansdown charges Four Seasons prices while offering Holiday Inn level service and ambiance. Lansdowne is a favorite conference center for my company and it is in desperate need of some TLC. A little paint here, a rug steam clean there, a quick scrub of the baseboards, and updated lighting fixtures in the guest rooms.

If you are here for a conference, they will feed you into a coma. But there are no coffee pots in the rooms and only one restaurant serves "complimentary" tea and coffee in the morning. And don't think you will be able to squeeze in a spa service if you have a spare 90 minutes in your conference schedule. They are very polite when you call but completely unable to accommodate your schedule even if only to offer another service.

The exercise room and pools were the best part of the resort.

Stayed here for 1 night over the memorial day weekend. Had a hospitality suite, huge living room plus seperate bedroom. Room furnishings were a little outdated but we weren't there to sit in our room all day. Pull out sofa wasn't the most comfy but worked out ok for our 2 children. Arrived much earlier than check inn time at 4pm (arrived at 11.30am) but lucky for us our room was ready. The best thing about this hotel was the outdoor pools. Lovely pools with waterslide and zero entry section for little ones. Great service from pool wait staff. Lifeguards on duty. Great spot for a summer get away.

I recently attended a business conference at Lansdowne Resort. The facility is very nice and very well kept. It does, however, have a bit of a "factory" feel. There are lots of events going on and I never felt like our conference was anything special for the resort. The staff seemed to be rushing us out of our various rooms - e.g. starting to clean up while we were finishing up. We had dinner the first night in part of the ball room and the acoustics were horrible and the set up looked like we were going to a bad wedding. The food was generally good and we were provided with exactly what we had booked - no more, no less. I felt like I could have been in any conference center anywhere in the US.

My husband visit Lansdowne a few times a year. We live less than three miles away and this is the perfect get away to reconnect as a couple. My husband and I are both well travelled and this small boutique hotel is one of the nicest we've stayed at in the country. The grounds are well maintained throughout the year, the staff is gracious, the rooms are very luxurious, the food in the hotel is top notch and the outdoor pools are fabulous. The outdoor pools are heated and open from early May through October

Dear Trip Advisor Member,

Thank you for your kind words regarding your recent stay at Lansdowne Resort. We have many of our immediate neighbors come to Lansdowne for a nearby relaxing getaway.

As Washington, DC's only four diamond AAA resort we do offer spa, golf, indoor-outdoor pool complex, exceptional food and more! Please come back and see us again soon. Our free outdoor "Sounds of Summer" concert series starts June 5th and continues each Friday night through Labor Day weekend. It is a great way to spend a beautiful summer evening.

Again, thank you for your review.

My partner and I spent 3 nights over the Easter weekend at Lansdowne.
We had a middle suite on the 7th floor which was actually quite large and it had a lovely view. The room itself seemed to be recently decorated with minor refurbishments. The bathroom was small and the sink and shower were in separate rooms--I am not sure of the logic or reasoning behind this design. My biggest problem with the Lansdowne was noise. The rooms and doors are very poorly soundproofed. We could hear the conversations and activities of the couple in the next room to ours. On the Saturday morning we were awoken to the cries of "Room Service" from one of the hotel staff. He spent over an hour banging on doors crying "Room Service" in his baritone voice. The sounds echoed through our room--you could feel the walls shaking. All of these problems were a sign of poor insulation and the use of cheap un insulated doors. For this reason alone we would not stay there again. On Saturday we visited the spa for a couples massage. The spa is beautiful. Our massage was average considering we paid a total of $300.00 for it. We did not eat on the premises so I cannot comment on any of the restaurants. If you are looking for a quiet getaway for relaxation this is not the hotel to stay at.

A few girl friends and I stayed here for a night to recharge. Each of us had spa appointments booked for the afternoon which started the weekend out right. The spa was clean, attractive, and the services were wonderful. Even better, we will able to stay within the spa and use the whirlpool, sauna, and steam room after our services were finished. This is where we really unwound and caught up with each other. After we left the spa, we were totally relaxed. The staff was very friendly and accomodating.

We had a great dinner that evening while lounging in soft oversized chairs, sipping on wine in front of a fire. We even played Wii for the first time while there.

We had heard great reviews about the brunch but ended up just having the regular breakfast buffet instead. It was great and I would recommend it to anyone that doesn't want to stay until 11am when the brunch begins.

Surprisingly, it was an extremely affordable weekend that did not break the bank. It is one of the few hotels in the Washington DC area with free parking, great amenities, and such nice spa facilities. I would highly recommend it to anyone planning a ladies weekend away.

We decided to take a last minute mini-vacation and go to the spa at Landsdowne and spend the night. We each had a stress relieving massage and ate at the golf club. After dinner we hung out in the bar and grill and played shuffleboard. There are very nice, comfortable sitting areas, with board games and books. We really enjoyed ourselves and are looking forward to going back when the outdoor pools are open.
