A short vacation in August had me visiting Washington DC for the first time. Choosing a location that was reasonably close to 'the sites' yet not part of the big business hassle that comes along with the larger hotels was the reason for selecting this location.
Not an overly large hotel but the facilities needed, bed, food etc were there. I was pleasantly surprised that my room was available so early in the day have flown overnight to get to the States and i checked in just before midday. The interior of the hotel and the rooms reminded me of English hotels in rural towns, almost a Fawlty Towers perception, less the crazy owner!
The staff were all helpful and polite and one couldn't get lost in the building, although discerning where breakfast was on the first day was challenging.
I ate one evening meal at the bar in the hotel which was very good. All other meals were exterior to the hotel and all within walking distance, literally one or two blocks.
Overall, despite the construction works over the road, which actually didn't affect my sleep whatsoever, I was very pleased with the choice of the hotel.
- 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
