The hotel is very distinctive in Washington - 'olde worlde' - like it's pretending to be an Oxford college (only brick, not Cotswold stone!) Inside there are stone floors and tapestries, not marble, mirrors and chrome.
The room was a little small but extremely comfortable, gorgeous bed, thoughtful touches like free bottled water and an umbrella for your use and a robe.
The staff were lovely - helpful, attentive, friendly. I had a minor disaster which they handled very well.
In June 2013 I didn't experience any noise (as mentioned by others). I am an extremely light sleeper but in my room I didn't need the earplugs. Maybe I was focused on my work, but I didn't notice 'grimy carpets' or other things complained about here.
It's not 5 star modern luxury but I wasn't paying a 5-star price (maybe I got a good deal - just over 200 per night).
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Experience the elegance of a grander era at The Henley Park Hotel in downtown Washington DC. Constructed as the Tudor Hall Apartments in 1918, this historic address served as the home of notable Senators and Congressmen. Showcasing a stately façade of leaded, stained-glass windows and 119 grinning gargoyles - including two depicting the architect and his wife - the lodging struck the ideal tone for its distinguished clientele. Thanks to a staff as attentive to tradition as it is to the ever evolving needs of the modern traveler, the civilized spirit which made The Henley Park Hotel one of Washington’s most cherished homes is very much intact. ... more less
