Reviewed May 17, 2012

This is an adorable hotel located in a great section of D.C. Its 4 blocks from the White House and very convieniently located 2 blocks from Foggy Bottom Metro station.
The room was small, but very comfortable. Great bed and linens. We stayed on the street side which was a little loud with traffic. But its in the city, so thats not the hotel's fault. If you want a quieter room ask for a room in the back.
The breakfast was expensive - would recommend walking across the street to Founding Farmers for a great breakfast.
The Metro was super easy to use and gets you to almost all hot spots in DC including museums and Memorials.
The staff couldnt have been nicer. They were so attentive and kind.
This is a historic hotel with lots of original art and ornate decor. Very cute.
AC worked good and nice size bathroom.

Room Tip: If want quieter stay ask for room in the back of building.

We stayed at this hotel in February 2012 for Business and choose it for its location. From the moment we pulled up to the moment we left the door staff was exceptional. Parking was a bit pricey but we were parking in a city.
The room size was excellent, the room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Our room faced another building and did not have a view, but we were not there to sit in the room so we had no issue with it.
At night it was quiet in the area but there were plenty of restaurants within walking distance. For breakfast there was a Founding Farmers Restaurant a few blocks away that was wortht he trip.

Stayed here with a friend while we were in town for a night to see the John Legend show at the Kennedy Center. Location is great, room was huge and had a kitchenette. It's definitely a great value for the dollar. We walked to Georgetown for brunch and home from the Kennedy Center via a post concert dinner. Added bonus is the cute bar on the first floor (wine was $11 a glass though), but it's nice to have a place to have a drink and small bite when you arrive.

I stayed in a room with a King bed on the 3rd floor. Didn't have much of a view, unless you like brick walls, but what a great room. There's a bathroom with a window that opens for some fresh air, there is a dressing area just outside the bathroom, then there's the main room with the bed and TV. Off the main room, opposite the dressing area, was a little kitchen area! There was room enough for a little table and two chairs, a fridge, sink, coffee maker. It's a great little set up, comfy beds and linens, in a quiet location close to the White House. And the price was great! The only problem I had was that the A/C blew too hard and really dried out my sinuses. I'm not a fond of fans blowing on me directly at night.

Unfriendly people working at front desk. Our company staff have visited this hotel during the past 10 years many times. Now its enough. The prize was ca 350 USD, and getting so bad service at the reception. I felt so bad.

Was completely charmed by this vintage historical boutique hotel. All the details have been preserved, including many stairs. The room was tight with a decent sized desk, but beautifully furnished with period pieces. The marble bath was large. Breakfast served in the front dining area was out of another era with a view of the street. The bar felt like a tucked away speakeasy. I would definitely stay here again.
My room overlooked the residential neighbors' manicured courtyards. I was woken by the trash collectors in the alley out back at 5 am, but this is a city. It was raining the entire trip, so did not walk to the Metro, but had no trouble getting cabs.

I can not wait to stay here again! There is no lack of character and charm in this hotel. Customer service is beyond top notch. The street view could be loud during the day but the our bedroom faced the back and didn't hear anything.

Like other have posted the furniture looks a little outdated, but it was clean and has been taken care of well. The bed and linens very clean and smelled great.

Everything was in walking distance or an $8 dollar cab ride for 2 people from Union Station and that was on a Friday night.

We will definetly stay at Hotel Lombardy again and will recommend this place to everyone who asks "Where to stay in DC"!
