“Beautiful Historic Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

We stayed at the Churchill Hotel for four days of site seeing in Washington. It is a beautiful older hotel in great condition. It was an easy walk to many restaurants, the Metro and Dupont Cir. We had an incredible suite that was wonderful and huge. I'd give our room a 10. The only reason that I am giving the hotel a 4 out of 5, is because the staff, who were very friendly and who tried to be helpful, lacked true knowledge of the area. They don't have a concierge, so finding good restaurants was up to us. Luckily, we did, Bistro du Coin!!!!

This hotel represents good value for businesspeople or tourists wgo wish to be based near Dupont Circle.

The lobby and public areas are not extravagantly decorated. The elevators are slow and antiquated. But, as is often the case with "historic" properties, the room corridors are wide and the bedroom ceilings high.

My bedroom was surprisingly large, though the bathroom unfortunately didn't match in size. Furnishings are traditional in style, the decor somewhat old-fashioned but the room was neat and clean and everything worked, Wi-di was good with no blind spots and no need to log in for each session as is often the case.

Service levels are adequate but minimal. There is no functioning mini bar in the bedroom. There are beverage and snack vending machines on selected floors which slightly downgrade the feel of the hotel but represent better value.

I booked my room online and got a very good rate of USD85.00 nett. Checked in early at about 11 immediately upon arriving from Atlanta. The counter staff seemed rather snobbish, i think it was because i was Asian. They seemed to greet the occidentals differently, from what i noticed.
The rooms furnishings were somewhat outdated, however they were well maintained. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were too soft. The bathroom was small and the bathtub was probably designed for hobbits. There was no double lock for the doors, only a latch. The walls were pretty thin and a door being opened across the hall would seem like your door was being opened. The floors creaked, adding to the authenticity of an old hotel. The was no view from my room and looking out the windows i could see pigeon poo all over the window sills. Location was pretty good with access to a vast variety of outlets.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a high floor away from the elevators

Let me start out by saying that there are so many great things about this hotel. The common spaces are bright and well appointed. The hotel itself is charming - it maintains many of the details of the building - particularly in the hallways.

The room my friends and I stayed in was an oversized corner king room. The bedroom was huge, there was a semi-private study, and a decent sized bathroom. Decor was traditional and comfortable. The bed was comfortable. There was a larger mini fridge in the study area. The bathroom layout was a bit tricky - it was very narrow, the bath and toilet were in a separate room beyond the sink area. The fan - which was very loud - would turn on when you turned on the light the the first room where the sinks were. Not a big deal, especially considering the rate I got on the room was very reasonable.

Another odd thing was that there was only 1 set of towels in the bathroom. Again, not a big deal, but I had to call down to housekeeping for more.

But - the reason for the "Poor" review... After checking in and unpacking, my friends and I went back downstairs to explore the city. When we exited the elevator we were greeted by a giant cockroach. That image stayed with us the rest of our stay.

Unfortunate, because this otherwise would have been a "Very Good" review.

Very comfortable clean room which was also very quiet. Great free Wifi. A nice selection of restaurants close by even though it is a bit of a walk uphill coming home.Not close to the Metro but being tourists, it was great to be able to catch the hop on, hop off bus across the road.

The Hotel is indeed a classic in Washington DC. Unlike other international hotels, this one has personality and style. Rooms are spacious, and provide you all the necessary equipment for business travellers. The place is conveniently located close to Dupont Circle (albeit if you are carrying bags is not walking distance) and also it has amenities and a 24 supermarket close by. The bar is very good, and the breakfast is awesome.

If you are appreciative of classic charms, this one is for you.
We stayed in DC area for 3 nights, but decided to rotate around just to get a feel for more things. The suite we stayed at was marvelous. We would have enjoyed this hotel still had we decided to stay for more nights.

Everything was very well maintained and absolutely clean.
Since we have our rental car, we were concerned about parking cost. It turned out we had no problem parking on the nearby streets overnight, just another saving.

There was absolutely not a single issue.
I definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: After evening activities, you can save some money by just parking on the streets in the neighborhood...
