We stayed here for 4 days and were absolutely satisfied. Very nice hotel that is located a couple blocks from the mall. Very close to Union Station ( 2 blocks) so we were able to take the subway from Reagan Airport and walk the short distance to the hotel. We went to a play at Ford Theater (Hello Dolly) which...

Originally got this reservation through hotwire at a great rate. When hubby could not travel due to medical circumstances, we had to cancel, but hotel staff was extraordinarily accommodating by giving us an exceptional rate at a later date. Curtis Green and Anthony Wood could not have been more helpful and kind in my dealings with them. Room 1002 was... More

The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was in excellent condition, and was clean and comfortable. It was also spacious. The close proximity to the capitol was nice and provided a great view. The gift shop in the loby was also very convenient.

At $229/night this hotel was not "a deal" but few good ones are in DC. It was a very nice, upscale, clean, inviting hotel in a great location - about 3 blocks from the Capitol and 5 blocks to Union Square. Had a lovely, spacious corner room (802) with a peek at the Capitol dome. Had breakfast in the restaurant... More

We got a decent rate with a groupon. The location of this hotel cant be beat. We walked to the capital, the National Mall etc. Our room was on the 16th floor and had a view of the capitol, just like in the ads! The staff was nice. Our room overlooked the firestation but was not too noisy. Paint was... More

We'd book this hotel again just because of Tyrone one of the many doormen at the Court. Exceptional location, taxi's are cheaper then New York, LA and Chicago!! a three minute walk upto Union Station where you catch the subway, and sight seeing tours. DO NOT RENT A CAR!! it's a total waste of money, the subways and taxi's are... More

The hotel has a certain charm. If it were in a different location it would quite nice. It sadly is in a bad spot. To get to a metro station you must walk through an area that is full if the homeless. I think there must be at least one shelter very close by. Staff was great, it's clean, beds... More

I think I just stayed at probably one of the best hotels at a reasonable price in Downtown DC. Although the location is not the most desirable due to a lot of poor folks roaming around, the hotel is just beautiful. Our room was spacious and the the service was spectacular. My kids thoroughly enjoyed the stay. I wish I... More

Purchased a room from Hotwire at a relatively low price and learned it was to be at the Washington Court Hotel. It's not mentioned in the popular Washington DC guide books but fortunately it was listed in TripAdvisor. The property is well-located and within walking distance of the National Mall and Union Station. There is also a City Bikeshare stand... More

We stayed here while attending a conference at the convention centre. We walked everywhere from this hotel, we also did cab it a couple of times, which was probably still cheaper than a rental car and the crazy parking rates. We used the metro as well, which is conveniently located to the hotel. Overall, the location was the best attribute... More
