Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
At the Kimpton Banneker Hotel, guests have applauded its central location, which puts them in proximity to local dining and attractions, although noise from the bustling streets has been a downside for some. The rooms are generally spacious and equipped with modern amenities, yet there have been mentions of noise disturbances and cleaning inconsistencies. While the hotel's cleanliness and professional service often receive high marks, reviewers have voiced concerns about its value, pointing out overpriced amenities and unexpected charges. The atmosphere is noted for its chic modernity, but the lounge's music sometimes detracts from the overall experience.

Great location and staff. Room was comfortable and fitness center had everything to make for a good workout. The coffee situation is very strange. No coffee pots in the room. The coffee station at the lobby is great if you want to get dressed and leave your room to get it. We asked for a coffee pot and got a nespresso maker which was great. But the nespresso pods weren’t replenished unless we called to ask for more.

The room was extremely clean and the bed was very comfortable. The cleaning staff did an excellent job of cleaning my room the next day. The entire staff was extremely friendly and courteous. We used the meeting room on our final day and the space was large enough so that we didn't feel tight. We would definitely stay here again!

The bed was so cozy, and the room was bright. Even though it was facing major road, 16th street, it was not noisy at all. Room layout was also very efficient, and the temperature control was actually working the way I wanted, which is very rare. The gym was also beyond just functional. Berlin and everybody at the reception was very helpful and kind. The entire hotel has a good ambiance. Def come back again.

Great location, friendly staff, poor cleaning regime. My second stay (but my families first) at this property and this time it was not as good as the first. The location is superb. Everything is walkable really in DC, but this is nice and central. Really good size rooms with a fridge. Inclusive breakfast is nice to find, but not much choice. Wine hour 5-6 and free coffee in the mornings are a lovely touch. Room cleaning was really poor. The fridge had some sort of smelly scum on the bottom which we had to clean before we could use it. Other instances of dirt and makes on walls and floors prior to stay and were not addressed during the stay. Prior to staying I asked several questions and they did not respond in a timely fashion to messages through booking.com, in fact they responded to one after may stay concluded sent a fortnight before the stay. It was quicker through the direct email, but even then they didn’t always do what we asked, for instance I asked for a tea kettle in the room, was told it would be there, and it was not on arrival, I thankfully had brought my own. Iron and board available on request. Inclusive breakfast is misleading, it only covers two people, even though the booking was a “kids stay free”, meaning there were three people on the booking. Bar on roof was closed throughout, but just looking through the window I can imagine the views are brilliant. Christmas decorations were a nice touch and the whole street had a lovely Christmassy feel to it. A couple of supermarkets within easy walking distance too, if you are looking for anything too.

Loved our stay here. Staff was friendly and helpful, food in the restaurant was delicious and amenities like the bikes, gym and wine social hour were great. We were on the 2nd floor so street noise could be loud at times so would recommend staying on a higher floor or bringing earplugs. It was our first time staying at a Kimpton and would definitely choose this chain again.

My stay at the Banneker was nothing short of amazing! I was greeted by Racheal at the front desk, the manager Abass, is more like a friend offer drinks immediately! My husband had a glass of wine while I dined on Ginger-ale. All while checking in. Everything I needed was brought to my room from water to snacks to even ordering pizza, Racheal and Donnell rose to the occasion. I never had to leave my room if I didn’t want to. Elly always ended the night with a beautiful smile, that goes a long way! I met Aton on my last night and even though I didn’t have much interaction, I know a person with exceptional guest service when I see one! Don’t think twice about staying at the Banneker it will not disappoint. P.S. all restaurants and attractions worth visiting was know more than 5-15 minutes away! Uber access is a breeze! It’s like having a personal car service at your fingertip if you stay at the Banneker Washington DC!! XoXoX I will return! :)

Dear EdinDC, I am sorry to read about your disappointment with the check-in experience and the location of the room. Next time, I would ask you to send me a note before your arrival so I can guarantee you a much better experience; no need to go to Madison for that! We have an award-winning restaurant that I strongly recommend you to try and definitely, many other rooms that you will like more. Send me your dates and I will take care of the rest. Have a wonderful weekend.

Huge thanks to the fabulous Banneker team.! Elly the front desk agent warmly welcomed us and upgraded our room for my birthday! We at Le Sel for breakfast and was greeted by Nia’s inviting smile and was given two “eye opener” shots! We loved them. We enjoyed breakfast so much we went back on our last day where we met Kia “like the car” he was great and even stopped to chat with us for a little! Lastly thank you to our doorman Reta who greeted us and helped us with our luggage! We truly felt at home! Very close to all the attractions, restaurants, and historical sites.. Tip: Take the Veo scooters and explore!
