“Delightful staff; delicious food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

I spent a week at the Crowne for D.A.R. Congress. From the moment I arrived, I was impressed by the professional and friendly staff, the beautiful decor, the large rooms with the most comfortable beds, and a superb restaurant. The staff members for both the hotel and the restaurant were top-notch: friendly, helpful, patient....attended functions at other hotels during the week and returned to Crowne each day even MORE impressed! All the ladies from the other states agreed that the Crowne Plaza is definitely the place to stay. We will return in 2014 to the Crowne and cannot wait. Thank you all staff members for making our staff memorable. Please keep the bone in rib-eye on the menu! Cindy Rice.....Laurel, MS

I stayed two nights for business at the Hamilton. This is a beautifully
updated historic hotel in a prime location in downtown DC, bordering Franklin Square. Although I did not have much time for sightseeing, I was within easy walking distance of the White House and the National Mall. The hotel is one block from a metro stop on the blue line from National Airport, so it it by convenient for air travelers. Staff were very friendly and helpful. My room was spacious and beautifully appointed. I would gladly stay here again.

Dear PHW,

Only being in DC for two days you definitely need to be a very convenient location and we are quite lucky to be in just that. Hopefully you'll have a bit more time to explore all of the wonderful museums and historic attractions that Washington DC has to offer for visitors.

We all look forward to having you as our guest again in the future.

I had a fantastic experience with the Hamilton Crowne Plaza Hotel! A friend of mine was getting married and her and her fiance planned on staying at this hotel the night of their wedding because this is where they stayed the night they got engaged. I was responsible for setting up the hotel so I called the Front Desk to coordinate dropping off their bags prior to their arrival. Joseph from the Front Desk called me back promptly and was able to help me by offering an early check in the day of the wedding. He met me at the front desk at 8:00am and walked me up to the room. To my surprise, Joseph was able to upgrade the room to a one-bedroom suite on the top floor. Joseph and his team really went above and beyond to make sure that their day was truly special, thank you so much!!!

We arrived at 1am and the front desk attendants were very welcoming. The rooms were super clean, dimly lit, and classical music welcomed us. The amenities were high end and I loved the convenience of the Starbucks downstairs. It was super quiet despite being downtown. I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: I forgot to ask for a king size bed but the doubles were fine. I recommend asking for one if you are...

I'm Gold Priority Club, so I see more than my share of Crowne Plaza's (Gold Marriott, too). The Hamilton Crowne Plaza offers a good DC location. Central to most things. They have a nice cafe, bar and an attached Starbucks. The negatives: Rooms are small (Euro-sized) and, to save a few pennies, the management was not running central air in the hallways on the room floors (pretty lame). Could rate better, but they earn a average mark from me.

This hotel is on the corner of 14th & K street. Very easy walking distance of the White House. It is very comfortable, with a few good restaurants within walking distance. Circular Bus right outside which can take you to the main railway station which is near the Capitol.
