I just love the hotel and specially its the Close to Union station which is a plus as I flew in to BWI. Easy walk to Capitol, National Gallery, etc. Easy check-in. Crab bisque in restaurant very tasty. Room is basic. Nice bed and bathroom. Thin walls, was awakened by very loud lady talking about sight-seeing around 4:30 am.

I arrived at 11pm after a long trip, and they did not have my pre-paid room. They "walked" me to another hotel 5+ miles away--very inconvenient and caused me to lose sleep, and have to rush to my morning appointment to beat traffic. No compensation was given. Use extreme caution booking this hotel. They do not honor their commitments, and... More

I've been to DC on other occasions and always needed to take the Metro for meetings. Not this time. Everything was in walking distance...and walking is healthier. Plenty of space in the rooms, comfortable beds and although they had a charge for wireless internet, the free internet from the lobby worked in my room on the 7th floor. I didn't... More

Hard to make reservations but once you're checked in you're treated like royalty. Great service, especially Paul at the desk. The food was great. It is near and I mean within walking distance of many sights.

Stayed at the Washington Court for the weekend of March 21-24, while visiting Georgetown Law Center with my sons. The service was great from the moment we arrived with a terrific doorman and valet. Check-in was easy and the room was comfortable. The hotel is a little pricey, but expected due to it's location. Room service was timely and breakfast... More

We got a good deal on this place and paid about $100.00 per night. At that rate I was quite happy with this hotel. It is centrally located, clean, staffed with very helpful and friendly staff and it has a lovely lobby. If I had paid full price I would have been bothered by the need for refurbishing, so it...

This was my 4th or 5th stay at Washington Cour. The property is excellent and the staff is top notch. It is convenient to Union Station and the subway as well as easy walking distance to our meetings around the Capital. There are several good dining locations within easy walking distance, too.

Great location and superbly friendly staff makes up for hotel being slightly dated and worn around the edges. However, it's clean and less expensive than others in the area and I really appreciated the service. Great bar food! I sat at the bar and ordered the flatbread pizza. It was delicious and I made it my dinner. The bar is... More
