“4 days at the Churchill Hotel in Washington, DC”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

This is a classic early 20th century hotel. It is well maintained, clean and the staff is excellent. Room rates are very good for a hotel that is just north of Dupont Circle. Only drawback is its uphill location. Some weary travelers walking up the hill may wish they stayed closer to Dupont Circle.

Room Tip: We were there in mid January when Washington, DC tends to be quiet. Hotel was not busy so we were up...

Dear William157, Thank you so much for your great review! We are grateful for the time you spent to share some thoughts about your stay with us and other travelers. Being honest with you I also find the uphill way from the metro station towards Churchill a bit wearing, especially for someone carrying luggage. That’s why we usually recommend guests coming from the airport to use shuttle service. I personally find this part of the neighborhood more tranquil and this could be an advantage when it comes to choosing a hotel in Dupont Circle area during busy season. Thanks again for your kind words. We certainly want you to come back in the nearest future!

I recently stayed at the Churchill while attending a conference across the street. The first night I was in town ended horribly due to conference planners and the hotel's sales office apparently overbooking rooms, sending a bunch of people packing to distant hotels (including myself). Despite the crazy situation for the night registration staff and customers, Wanda at the registration desk was amazingly patient, polite, and apologetic - She managed the situation extremely well given the circumstances. The following day, she was able to bring me back to the Churchill and set me up with excellent accommodations. In addition to Wanda, the rest of the hotel and restaurant/bar staff were really great. Without the customer service I received, The Churchill would certainly not be getting the high rating I've given.

The Churchill was a real find for us. We stayed there while attending a convention up the street, and booked a suite - because conventions are tough, and we wanted space and comfort. The suite was on the top floor with a nice street view: a bit aged, and the bathroom is probably about due for remodeling, but clean, spacious, and very comfortable. Service was exceptionally good and pleasant.

Dear Alpwalker2013, thank you for your five star review! Must admit that big convention groups might be challenging for small properties like ours but we work hard on attracting more of business travelers lately. We believe that creating cozy and relaxing atmosphere is the most important thing for those who spend long hours on trainings and business meetings. Maybe we cannot offer comfortable function facilities like some bigger hotels but we gladly extend our “home away from home” concept to our valued business guests. On behalf of the entire Churchill Team I want to thank all of our recent convention guests. You’ve been very kind to us and it will be a great pleasure to welcome you back! We are all grateful!

I needed a hotel within the government rate in DC and my usual hotel was full. My travel agent found The Churchill in the same area at the necessary rate. I was very pleasantly surprised.

Pluses:
Embassy area, right on Connecticut Ave.
Plenty of good restaurants in the area (hotel has its own restaurant but I didn't try it this trip).
Very nice room.
The staff are superb, friendly and competent.
Directly across from the Hilton and costs a lot less.

Minuses:
It is smack in the middle between the Dupont Circle metro and the Woodley Park/Zoo metro stations on Connecticut Ave. That's really the ONLY downside is that if you metro in/around DC you have to walk a few blocks first. I actually think this is relatively minor because I like walking and this helped me get my exercise in the for the day. I could see this being a problem if you had kids in tow or were mobility impaired. There are buses and taxis readily available, however.

Old stately hotel that has seen some better days but remains a good deal value in the area immediately north of Dupont Circle. My fiancee booked it last minute on Expedia and got a very good rate for one night's stay. The lobby is nice and has an ecclectic selection of art but once again the hotel is quite old and thus has many quirks including the smaller sized elevators (very slow be forewarned) and guest rooms with unusual shapes and non standard corners. Thats part of the appeal but then again several of the fixtures were installed crooked in the bathoom (including the toilet). Its part of the charm of an old hotel yes but improvements abound. Oddly also each floor advertises an ice machine and vending machine but our floor (9th) only had the vending machine so I had to venture down to the 6th to find an ice machine (no vending on that floor). The staff seemed energetic but overwhelmed but were helpful when we left behind our luggage in storage for the afternoon. Its a decent hotel for a good (for DC rate) in an excellent neighbourhood. Walking to the distant Metro however is a chore and parking is valet only so be prepared to pay.

Room Tip: Nice feature since its an antique hotel that all the window open (at least partially)

Dear KJDC19, Thank you for such a detailed and well structured review. I’m sure that a lot of people will find it helpful planning their first visit to DC and our hotel specifically. I really liked your comparison between our hotel and old dame. It could be ‘Sir’ since hotel was named after Winston Churchill but it doesn’t change the idea of having something old-fashioned and traditional. There is a magnetic charm about some buildings and residential areas in Washington DC that attracts a lot of visitors to this city. I can proudly say that Churchill is one of those old-world charms. Our hotel is a historic building erected in 1906 and it was originally designed as a luxury apartment complex. Then apartment units were cut into separate hotel rooms that gave each room a unique shape and layout. Some peculiarities of the hotel such as elevators probably don’t look very comfortable but help to create the desired antique atmosphere. I agree with you that old-fashioned doesn’t mean worn out. And I can assure you that we work hard to match the hotel facilities with the requirements of contemporary world. Thanks again for your comments and we will be delighted to welcome you back to our renovated Churchill in the nearest future! (NP/FOS)

We enjoyed 2 nights at the Churchill over Christmas visiting old friends and relatives. The location is so awesome, with Dupont Circle and Adams Morgan so packed with restaurants and entertainment. We walked everywhere and enjoyed entertaining in our room. The fridge and workspace made for a great buffet and there was plenty of room. Our king size bed and covers were excellent and the bath was nice, though a bit small. The staff were all very friendly. I don't know where the whiners are coming from. Our rate included free valet parking, but we found a place on the street since it was a weekend. We had breakfast in the grill onour last morning, and it was just fine. Ask for a room facing Connecticut Av and you get a great view of McClellan's Statue as well as a good panoramic view of DC. Don't miss thePhillips Gallery especially if the traveling Van Gogh exhibit is still there.

Dear Rowland H, It is always a pleasure to welcome you back! Thank you for pointing out our room features. Junior Suite is probably the most popular room type due to its size and better view location. We’ll definitely make sure you get the same room on your next visit. We were glad to hear that you found time to visit Van Gogh exhibit. This great exhibition featuring 35 paintings will be taking place in The Phillips Collection for one more month only. Thank you for your kind words and we look forward to seeing you back next Christmas! (NP/FOS)

The Churchill is our favorite place to stay in Washington. Not only is it a moderate-sized intimate historic hotel, but it is quiet and very comfortable. It's a welcome haven from the hustle and bustle of Connecticut Avenue. We love the starched and ironed sheets, beautiful art and interior architectural details, and interesting friendly support staff from all over the world. We are vegans and the hotel restaurant served side dishes of fresh vegetables for dinner and oatmeal made with water for breakfast. Relaxed atmosphere. Many of the rooms have lovely views. We use the AAA special rate which has valet parking included in the price. This gives us the use of our car if we want. Otherwise it is a hike to either the Dupont Circle and Woodley Park metro station.

Room Tip: The rooms are quiet and mattresses are excellent. When you check in, ask for the best available ro...

Dear 442Heidi44, thanks a lot for your lovely review! Pleasant words always inspire and motivate in delivering even better service. It’s good to know that some people regularly choose our hotel out of numerous properties in the area. Parking is really a hassle in DC and I completely agree with you that our AAA package would be probably the best way to save some money for those who travel by car. Please keep on checking our website offers that could be of great help in planning your next trip to Washington. Look forward to welcoming you back to The Churchill Family!
