The Henley Park Hotel
Ranked #101 of 142 Hotels in Washington DC
Reviewed September 12, 2013

I traveled for business to attend a conference at a nearby hotel. The Henley is charming. Impeccably, incredibly clean. Small, but very sweet rooms with an old-fashioned (but not worn out) style. I even found a little packet of earplugs on my bed, in case I wanted to block out street noise (my room did not face the street, so there was no need). You can easily walk to Chinatown and many other downtown locations. The bathroom was newly renovated, although the lighting there can be better and turning on the shower is a little tricky (really). One caveat: while comfortable, this hotel is not an ideal choice for business travel, especially if you need to work in your room and prefer a modern desk set-up for your laptop. I ended up typing from my bed.

Room Tip: My room did not have a view. It faced an interior view of windows from other rooms. The upside of th...

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay at the Henley Park Hotel. We take great pride in the cleanliness of our historic hotel and our housekeeping staff does an excellent job.
We have completed renovating the first three floors of the hotel and plan to continue the remaining four floors to better accomodate the business traveler.
The newly renovated floors include a large desk, more electrical sockets for device charging, wall mounted larger TV's as well as new fabric and color schemes.We are also replacing those "tricky" plumbing fixtures in the bathrooms.
On your return visit request one of these business traveler friendly rooms and I beleive that it will meet all your needs.

Regards,

Maggie Edwards

The Henley Park Hotel is an elegant place in a pretty nice area, very close to the DC convention center, and an easy walk to Ford's Theatre and then the National Mall, if you're a walker. Two Metro stops, Mt. Vernon Square and Gallery Place, are each just a few blocks away. (Part of the area around the Mt. Vernon Square/Convention Center stop seems a little sketchy, so be aware.) It's an easy trip to National Airport, but leave some extra time for the trains, as you'll sometimes have to wait for the right one.

There aren't a lot of retail businesses right by the hotel, but some neighborhoods with cute shops and restaurants are just a couple blocks away. There is also an intriguing old Carnegie Library just down the street from the hotel, but it was closed when we were there.

I liked the hotel's decor a lot, and the room was bigger than I expected, especially when the closet and decent-sized bathroom were added. The interior has a classic, traditional-DC feeling, with some modern touches, such as the up-to-date bathroom wallpaper and fixtures. Some of the furniture was very slightly worn, but less so than another hotel I stayed in on this same trip--mostly it was in pretty good shape. The bed was comfortable. There is an ironing board and a safe that's big enough to hold a laptop. I was worried about noise, since some other reviewers had mentioned it, but we didn't hear any construction, and we did have a room facing the street. (Perhaps they were off that day.) The air-conditioning and people in the hall occasionally made noises, but I think that would happen in any hotel, and the air-conditioning was much quieter than in the lower-end hotels I've stayed at. We didn't hear any voices from adjoining rooms.

I did have a little bit of trouble finding the desk clerk at times, but it never took more than a few minutes to get someone, and the staff seemed quite pleasant, especially the bellman who stored our bags, and clerk who checked us out. (One clerk was kind of indifferent.) Check-out was super-fast, with all charges properly done and printed out. I would definitely stay here again; I thought it was a great bargain--possibly we got a special Congressional-recess price.

We chose this hotel because it looked a bit different from all the others on the websites, and was it a find or what? Very well located, in close proximity to the centre of town, the HOHO bus, many attractions, and a spotless if slightly small room. When you spend many weeks in hotels it is nice to have something a bit different, and this was it. Beautifully furnished like a boutique hotel, a very elegant feel to it. Great staff, excellent location, and very good food - what more could you want?

Thank you for your review about your recent stay. I am pleased to learn that you enjoyed our convenient location. Our prime location provides our guests a seamless way to explore the Washington, DC area and is within walking distance of many area attractions and two Metro stations. Our twenty first century amenities are great but do need to fit in with the 19th century sensibility of our historic hotel. I hope that we provide the proper balance.
Come back soon.

The Henley Park Inn is a gem. The staff are welcoming and efficient. Rooms are small but very comfortable and nicely decorated and include a minibar/fridge. The Aveda bath products are a lovely treat. The location is ideal for walking around the city, or for catching transit or a tour.

Pleasently surprised by this little hotel. They have ALL the amenities, including FREE wireless internet, coffee maker in room, hair dryer, Bath and Body Works shampoo, soaps, lotion, and iron and ironing board, and bathrobe - all for GREAT low price. Location is ok, but will be getting better as the area around 10th and Mass just keeps getting upgraded.

Room Tip: Quieter on back side of hotel.

We arrived Aug. 30 and checked out on Sep 1. Beautifully-decorated accommodations were very clean, comfortable and well-staffed. Room service breakfasts, coffee from the bar on Saturday evening and lunch on Sunday were all promptly served and excellent in quality. Would definitely stay there again.
