The Hotel RL is a great hotel. It is situated right downtown, close to everything. The White House is within walking distance. The staff is really nice, but more importantly, very helpful without being asked. They see one's needs before one has to express them, and they fill the needs directly. They genuinely enjoy giving service which is uncommon today.... More

My daughter found this property for our visit to Washington DC and we couldn't have been happier. Easy access to the Metro, within walking distance to DuPont Circle with lots of eateries and shops. Very comfortable and roomy accommodations. Super friendly and attentive staff. We will definitely recommend and will probably be back.

This hotel is older however it was recently renovated. The rooms are modern and super spacious. I loved the living area, great for couples eating dinner or snacks. There is a Keurig single cup coffee maker, a mini fridge, and microwave. This room seemed more like a suite than a room. It was clean and we loved it. The location... More

Most enjoyable week's stay at the Hotel RL. Wonderful location within short walk of 2 Metro stations and circulator buses. The staff were very helpful and the room was huge. The beds were extremely comfortable and the kitchen was definitely a bonus. We were not bothered with the road noise but they provided ear plugs in case we were! Manny... More
