My friend and I planned a one night stay in Washington D.C. on a trip down to Texas. It was comfortable, the service was fantastic, and we came away feeling quite happy with our experience. Absolutely worth a stay!
My husband and I stay here often. It’s always clean & we have never had any issues with noise. Staff is friendly & accommodating. Comfortable bed & a nice Nespresso machine & fridge. Walking distance to restaurants and shopping. We will stay here again.
Really enjoyed my time staying here and wish I could have stayed longer! Staff was super friendly and attentive (even called my room after I checked in to make sure everything was good with my room, etc). Location is in a pretty residential area near Dupont Circle and The Embassies with plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance. Overnight parking is available on the premise for $40 if needed. Room was nice if a little small. But the bed was massive (think it was a king) and the bathroom seemed to be recently renovated and very clean. Breakfast not currently offered but will be returning soon I am told. For the price I thought it was well worth it.
Stayed here for 4 days. It was within walking distance from tons of restaurants. A great and safe area. The hotel staff were also great especially William. Very kind in welcoming the very first day and suggesting restaurants in the area. The whole staff was friendly. I will definitely stay here again!
This place is OK if you are looking for a cheap room in the District. Small but clean room, good shower. The rest is weird. Lift stinks of urine. No facilities i.e. no breakfast room, coffee machine in room but no coffee, rooms are not cleaned unless by special request etc. So to summarise, cheap but no way boutique..
Normandy Hotel is a quiet, comfortable, and safe establishment situated nearby several of the most Well-known and Highly visited Historic Washington DC HOTSPOTS. It is an exclusive and affluent area of the city, and conveniently located centrally to Embassy Row, Adams Morgan, National Zoo, National Cathedral, DuPont Circle, and Georgetown.
Very quaint space and rooms. The wallpaper in the room was a nice aesthetic but was peeling in some areas so made it look less desirable. The staff was nice, however the hotel didn't offer many amenities besides a coffee machine in the rooms.
Located in a quiet residential neighbourhood, only 15 minutes by Uber from the City Centre. Rooms looked very tired and dated and could do with some basic maintenance and investment. It appears that lots of money had been spent on the bathrooms, with Italian marble. Large shower cubicles, but shower heads lacked any pressure. Hotel corridors and lift doors need repainting,and would be very easy to address. Commercial mini fridges in bedrooms,which didn’t work. One room with bare electrical wires and in our room it was sitting on a wooden pallet! Coffee machine provided in the rooms, which was a nice touch. Unfortunately, there was no coffee left in our room on arrival, and we needed to ask reception. Only one bath towel provided for two people. Was it worth the money? Probably not. Would I stay there again ? Only if there has been a major refurbishment carried out.…
My husband and I, senior citizens, spent two nights here while we were visiting museums and sights in Washington. The hotel is located in an attractive, mostly residential neighborhood well served by Uber and Lyft, but there are no restaurants, cafes, or bars within comfortable walking distance if you are mobility impaired or the weather is bad. Dupont Circle is a half mile away. Parking is very limited. When we arrived one hour after check-in time on a week day, the desk clerk told us that we would have to park on the street, moving the car every two hours, or try valet parking at the Hilton down the street. Fortunately, another staff person (manager?), hearing our cries of dismay, kindly moved her car to make room for ours. We felt bad when we heard the next guests receiving the bad parking news. The room was nicely furnished, the bathroom was excellent (except for the small thin towels), and the A/C worked well. The internet was unsecured and slow. The staff was friendly enough, and somewhat responsive to requests, but made no effort to provide any service that was not specifically requested. Housekeeping is on demand only, but we were told this only when we reported at check-out that our bed had not been made, trash not emptied, cups not washed, etc. after our first night. When we retrieved our car upon departure, the parking valet brought the car quickly. However, after pocketing a decent tip, he returned to the lobby without a backward glance at two old people struggling to load luggage. The Normandy was listed as a three star hotel (quality comfort, according to google, better than two star "just the basics") amenities we consider basic were not provided. We were disappointed and will not stay there again.…
The woman who checked me in the first day was a great first impression. She accommodated me with an early check-in. Absolutely lovely personality. The location is great too... tree lined street very close to great restaurants near Dupont Circle. At first glance the room seemed clean because it smelled of bleach. However, when I went to sleep that night it had a weird odor and then in the morning the bathroom smelled of urine. The light in the shower flickers to the point you might have a seizure. The tv cable box is literally hanging from the top of the tv. The room was super beat up. No curtains, just white shades with empty curtain rods. The mini fridge was empty so I'm unclear why they took my credit card for incidentals as there's zero things to buy. I didn't realize there wasn't any coffee pods for the coffee maker. I went to call down to the lobby, but my phone didn't work so I walked down. The staff on duty told me he didn't drink coffee. I started to complain about the dirty room and then he suddenly found coffee! Amazing! This guy was horrendously rude and frustrated with me. I felt bad, but come on... coffee!! I went to my conference for the day and returned to a dirty room and was told they do not clean the rooms, ever! Is this new? Anyway, I asked for more coffee pods... was told they hadn't been delivered. So I used my old trick and began to relay how dirty the room was and, wouldn't you know, I got coffee pods! I had to drink from my dirty cup, but at least I have coffee. The shower pressure is dismal. The bed is very comfy, though. I think the hotel is experiencing a major staffing shortage all around. The person who checked me in should get a raise and promotion. She's the best thing about the hotel. I would not stay here again. Come up guys, clean your hotel!…
