We stayed at Hotel Lombardy during Inauguration week, and overall, had a great experience! Our room was actually a one bedroom suite, with a nice foyer, and a good sized living room overlooking Pennsylvania Ave, where we were able to view some of the bands who performed in the Inaugural Parade, as they came to the end of the parade route. Living room had sofabed, desk/chair, nice sized coffee table, and extra parlor chair. Bathroom was small, but adequate, pantry area was nice, with mini-bar, coffeemaker, and frig. Microwave would have been even better! Bed was very comfortable, flat-screen TV's in both rooms, and newspaper delivered daily. There was very little housekeeping noise during the early morning, and that, combined with great blackout drapes, caused us to oversleep nicely on a couple of mornings, when we didn't set the alarm. (: Housekeeping service overall was outstanding. Location is excellent, about 3 level blocks (yay! no hills!) from the Foggy Bottom Metro, with a few restaurants and a Whole Foods market just down the street, which came in VERY handy! One thing that did not go well was that on the one night that we called for a cab (Inauguration night, which was super busy) we specified to doorman that we wanted a regular cab, but we ended up in a "gypsy" cab with no meter, and ended up being charged an outrageous rate. We did not notice this until we were on our way, as it was bitterly cold that evening, and we just jumped in, trusting that the doorman had heeded our requests. We expressed this concern to the front desk clerk upon checkout, but she didn't seem too concerned, just said, "Well, that happens at inauguration and other busy times." Other than that one thing, the hotel was lovely, and we would stay there again.
