“Nice Hotel”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

Being close to the Foggy Bottom Metro Station this hotel is really convenient. A close walk to Georgetown opens up lots of opportunities for dinning too. I had one of the corner rooms and it was very spacious. There are functioning balcony doors which makes nice to get some fresh air in the evening. Being so close to GWU Hospital and the sirens made it a bit noisy. The staff at checkin and checkout were very pleasant and helpful. There were all the necessary amenities you would expect; big flat screen TV and free Wifi. Aside from the city noise, a nice hotel.

Dear Snowmiser,
Thank you for posting your review of your recent stay with us! We're so glad you were able to enjoy our wonderful location as well as your room and balcony!
While the city noise is unavoidable---should your travels bring you back to DC soon we hope to welcome you back as well as try to get you into a room on a higher level that faces away from the circle as we find that helps to filter a bit of the siren noise!
Best,
The One Washington Circle Hotel team

My wife and I were with a group of 17 church folks that spent 6 nights at this hotel. The staff was really helpful as we had never been to D.C. for a long stay. The rooms were clean, neat and large....Thanks staff for making our stay wonderful! When we come back to D.C. we're staying at One Washington Circle Hotel! Close to the Metro and just a short ride to ALL the attractions. We can't wait to come back.

Room Tip: You may want to ask for a higher room as GW Hospital was a little busy although it wasn't a prob...

Upon arrival we found that the room was not going to work for my family for our stay in DC. I was under the impression when I booked that the room would have a seating room and separated room with beds, like a suite. Additionally, the room was very worn and kind of an odd floor plan with what amounted to lots of wasted space. The carpet, furniture and curtains were all very worn like I said and the balcony lacked even a chair to sit in. To make a long story short, we decided we didn't want to stay so I booked a new room at a nearby hotel we were already familiar with. Then I went back to front desk expecting to get a hassle but the person who helped me could not have been more understanding. They expedited the cancellation of my 6 night reservation and within a few minutes we were pulling our suitcases 2 blocks over to the new hotel. So while the rooms leave a lot to be desired, at least what I could see anyway, the staff could not have been nicer and more professional. I really appreciated it.

I also really want to emphasize this for all travelers: Its YOUR money, you should never have to settle for less than perfect in a hotel stay.

Dear Hopart,
Thank you for sharing your recent experience with us, though you only stayed with us for a short time---we are glad to see that you recognized our wonderful team. While we realize our hotel is not the newest on the block, it is the experience that our team works hard to provide that makes all the difference.
That being said, we are eagerly anticipating various renovation projects over the next few months that will continuously improve our hotel's environment.
We hope that the next time your travels bring you to DC, that you will give us another chance!

Within a short walk to the metro, this hotel was ideal for my recent business trip to DC. The rooms are spacious, the hotel staff very friendly and helpful to navigate the city, and the location is in a lovely area. Would highly recommend for the price!

I stayed at this hotel this past weekend. It was 4 of us, including 2 children age 6 and 1. The room was nice, the pull out sofa bed was just enough for the kids. I really like that it had a kitchenette area as food can be quite expensive. I didn't get to use the gym or pool so I can't speak on that. I did go downstairs to the restaurant for dinner and they did not have anything for children to eat. No kids menu or anything. We tried again that next morning with breakfast and the buffet was just ok, nothing special. Parking was my main gripe. We tried to find parking around the hotel, no way! So we finally were forced to valet, and overnight valet was $40. I find that just crazy! The staff was very friendly. we had issues with our tv and they came promptly to fix it.

Dear Brittany B,
Thank you for sharing your feedback regarding your recent stay with us. Following your comments regarding your dining experiences, we have spoken with our chef and are looking to enhance our breakfast and children's menu options. We hope that the next time your travels bring you to DC that you will give our hotel another chance!
In regards to the parking charges, unfortunately, $40/night is in line with the DC standard charges---and is actually lower than certain areas of DC.
Again, Brittany, we hope to get another opportunity to truly exceed your expectations and hope to welcome you back very soon.

My family and I stayed at One Washington Circle Hotel over the Columbus Day weekend and absolutely loved it. However, I was not spurred to write a review until last week.

Last week, we traveled to Cleveland, Ohio to visit my wife's ailing grandmother. We stayed at a hotel in the same price point as One Washington Circle, but the room, amenities, and service were not nearly as wonderful.

Our room at One Washington Circle had all the amenities we desired and its staff was especially helpful and polite. In particular, Elliot Reaven's graciousness and pleasant demeanor sealed a tremendous experience.

Thank you,


Gerard

Just next to the metro, but also just a short walk away from the White House and many other sights! The hotel itself is exceptionally clean, staff friendly, food delish etc. On top of this, our room was unexpectedly large and included a kitchen! Having stayed in many U.S hotels - this was the best!
