“Stylish hotel perfectly located”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile


I recently spent one night here after the hotel I usually stayed at was fully booked, chose this hotel based on TA reviews and the price quoted.

Location is perfect for visiting organisations such as the World Bank or IMF, the hotel is also just opposite a park and is surrounded by restaurants and coffee shops, major tourist attractions are all a short walk away.

Service was good, I was upgraded to a park view suite which was huge! The hotel restaurant serves great food which also represents good value for money, wifi is fast and free throughout the hotel.

My only negative is that the check-in lady didn't look at me once throughout the process of checking in, weird and a bit rude!

Will definitely stay here again.

Hotel Lombardy is a cute little boutique hotel with the perfect location for touring DC. It's in the Foggy Bottom area which is walking distance to Georgetown and also down the street from the White House, about 15 min walk to the "Mall" and museums and 5 min to Whole Foods!

Staff and bell boys were friendly and the room we stayed in was like a little apartment. It was an "04" room which I was told is a suite (we were upgraded upon arrival). It had a long hallway, to the right a bathroom and bedroom with walk in closet and to the left another living room with a tv, couch, desk and behind there a big kitchenette. We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay and would definitely stay here again and recommend to others visiting DC.

Just be aware that the elevator is VERY small so if you get uncomfortable in small areas, get a lower floor and take the stairs. :) Don't let that steer you away from this great hotel.

The Hotel Lombardy is a charming vintage hotel in an excellent location. It is a short walk to the Metro and the Mall is well within walking distance. We ate out 3 nights and each night found an excellent restaurant less than a block away.

We decided to stay at the Hotel Lombardy based on the Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The hotel is very conveniently located. It is within walking distance of Georgetown and the Smithsonian museums. It is a charming hotel and our room was actually a suite with a sitting room and kitchenette. It was very clean and comfortable and we would highly recommend staying there.

I had a mixed experience at the Lombardy.

Hotel:
- The hotel is nice as it provides for an authentic feel
- They managed to provide a well balanced mix between dated and originality, which is great and feels very appropriate when staying in D.C. from my perspective.
- If you prefer luxury and an all-new-feel than you will not find that at the Lombardy.

Staff:
- The staff actually drags down my rating from 4 to 3 as there was constant up-selling on limousine even when asked for metered taxi
- Bell boys preferred to talk to each other than helping to open the door (at least show a reasonable attempt and not to just look, chat and ignore)
- Cleaning personal appeared unhappy and at times unfriendly.
- Reception staff was short and to the point and did not offer a map or the usual advise on local stuff.

Location
- The hotel is located in a great and safe area, very convenient (20 min walk to White House, 5 min walk to Subway)
- Plenty of restaurants, Starbucks and breakfast places nearby.

Bottom line:
I would not stay at hte Lombardy again as i feel that there are other choices available at that price point. Hotel management should check on their staff and improve in that area as it directly reflects to the hotel guest and experience.

We stayed four nights at this hotel while we visited Washington DC. It is well located, being only 5 mins to the metro station and 30 minutes to the Washington Monument. Also very good restaurants in thsi area--try Founding Farmers!

The staff are friendly and helpful. Check-in and check-out are very quick.

We booked several months in advance and prepaid. We got a very good rate.

We will stay at this hotel again.

Excellent location. Very nice large rooms with excellent view from both the bedroom and living room. Exceptionally clean (like new) baths. Excellent bedding and very good TV's, sofa, coffee table and desk. Super staff. Cozy bar and nice restaurant. Fast elevators.
The wife and I go to Washington often and have stayed at many hotels in the area. This is by far the best value in the area. I rank it over the JW Marriot AND Ritz Carlton in Georgetown on all counts ( though if you prefer glitz and shiny chandeliers over location and old school charm, you might have a different opinion). Will definitely make Hotel Lombardy our first call next time.

Room Tip: I'm not sure if every room is a suite, but ask for a suite because I didn't see where it cos...
