We enjoyed our stay at the Washington court hotel after the liaison did not have a room for us. We arrived at the liaison at 12 am hoping to get into our room quickly and get some rest. We waited in line for at least 30 minutes to check in, as other guests appeared to be having issues with check in. After finally reaching the check in desk, we were told that the room we had reserved was not available. The only available room had no bed, just a pull out couch that could only sleep one person. This situation was the same for another 5-6 parties attempting to check in after us. We were given the option of staying at another hotel down the street and switching back to the liaison for the second night of our stay. We decided to cancel our liaison reservation and stay at the other hotel for both nights. The entire situation was handled in a very unprofessional manor, adding stress and confusion to what we hoped to be a relaxing weekend.
Roof top pool, stylish room and great location. Breakfast was modest considering its price.
The best feature of the hotel was the convenient location. Staff were friendly and helpful.
The room was a little bit too much in regards to modern art deco. There was no two lamp that was the same. Parking cost $48 overnight,
location, clean and nice room, good room service some personell, lack of polintess and manners, not attentive and not accurate. Not welcoming.
Location, but there was no many restaurants around there, so we all went to Hilton, but the dinner on 11th Fl at Hilton was terrible. The room was small, and bathroom was stuck all the time, so the next person had to shower in the full of water of bath tub.
the location is perfect, next to union station and close to the museums
The bed was extremely comfortable. It was very quiet. I didn't hear much noise inthe hall and nothing from adjoining rooms.
Location very close to both Union Station and Capitol Hill, nice furnished and spacious rooms, free wifi in lobby. Breakfast not included.
The comfort of the room was fantastic, especially compared to the price we paid. The breakfast we had at the Art & Soul was tremendous... And the Concierge was very professional when we asked for information about sightseeing and dining in DC, unfortunately I don't remember his name! All in all a wonderful stay! Nothing!
The bed was very comfortable; room very clean and attractive. Our hotelwas on the tenth floor just below the fitness room. We were wken up at around 6 am for four days due to the noise of someone uisng the facilitities. We would recommend this hotel to others with the caveat to do so only if the room is on a lower floor.
The location The restaurant was under renovation and the breakfast was okay with no table to sit. I deplore this but I understand in a sens but they could do better to accomodate the guest to sit. I will still recommand the Hotel
Excellent Capitol Hill location. Comfortable base for young children on their first tour of the Capital.
Clean sheets, very comfortable bedding, clean showers and floors. Great location with respect to the national mall. Gym is great. Would definitely recommend. Nothing.
Very nice amenities and the shower was great! I booked my stay two month prior for a King Bed for one night. When I got there, they said they were sold out of King Bed's and all they had were two doubles. Not the biggest deal, but what is the point of booking a King in advance if that is not what is available? Also, our room did have a musty smell to it when we first got it. After running the air for a bit, it went away.
Internet, parking, tv hdmi not working, deceiving "city view"
Location Hidden charges. $58 a night to park. Nowhere did I see that when I booked the trip. $8 for a draft beer that should be $3, I get a call from security in the evening waking me up, stating that the policy is to call if the do not disturb sign is out. The do not disturb sign was out, I didn't want to be disturbed. Couldn't go back to sleep. I'm a small business owner, if I treated my customers that way, I would be out of business. I will never give that hotel a dime again.
That staff was very helpful and friendly. Also, the location was great. Very close to the Capitol building. We upgraded to a buffet breakfast, which was lacking and the hot food was cold. Not a good value at $25/ person, but at a hotel, I understand the price, but if the food is cold, then it was a waste of money.
Walking to distance to good lunch and dinner choices Hotel lobby shop was typical "airport prices" for anything you'd want, making You feel like a fool if you didn't to walk across the street and buy a snack or coffee at 1/3 price.
The location is perfect, near to train station and major tour points. The staff was kind and helpful. The room is comfy and spotless.
The location to the Washington attractions was very good. The value of the room was good., but the parking was very expensive. The food was very expensive, you would think that they would want to keep people in the hotel to eat but because of the prices many people choice to eat out.
Spacious room, quiet, clean and well-appointed.
breakfast buffet, swimming pool, location of the hotel absence of mini bar in the room
customer services very polite, staffs are excellent to please customers, afternoon tea/coffee does show their hospitality
Baggage holding after checkout. Plenty of towels. Limited to 30min free wifi in lobby. Hours of bar.
I RESERVED 5 ROOMS BUT WHEN I CALLED TO ASSIGN NAMES TO THE ROOMS, I WAS SUBJECTED TO A PISSING CONTEST BETWEEN THE FRONT DESK AND RESERVATION DEPARTMENT. iT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE RESOLVED, BUT ON ARRIVASL IT WAS NOT. iT CONTINUED DOWN HILL AT THE FRONT DESK. NEVER AGAIN...
very close to visit places. very neat and customer service was very good. I would recommend this hotel to my friends
Quiet room. Shower worked. First room not clean (pubic hair in tub, stuck to used soap). Changed room. Got a sarcastic apology. Next day, coffee maker in room didn't work. Asked for a new one. Instead, they sent a repair guy ("did you put water in it?" -really!?). Took 45 mins to finally get coffee & hit the gym brfore AM meeting. And what a dump of a gym. One of two treadmills broken, eqipment from 1980. Oh. And $10 for in-room wifi? Why would a business traveler stay at this place? I won't do so again.
Friendly staff, accommodating, awesome location No pool
Broken towel rack in the bathroom
Valet and door staff were terrific, as was check-out staff. Rooms were clean, comfortable and well-appointed. The location was perfect for our activities in the city, close to the Metro and the Capitol. Price was very reasonable, Overall it was an excellent value. Registration person never bothered to look up during the transaction, even when we first approached the desk - she just sensed we were there and launched into her questions. Repeated the mistake when we returned with the valet ticket to stamp.
Bell staff and front desk staff at check in were very helpful. Also housekeeping staff was quite nice. Check out staff not very friendly
Most convenient location. A short walk from Union Station where our bus dropped us. A short walk to the memorials and the mall. The lobby was huge and welcoming, though some of the couches were a bit worn and needs to be replaced. The rooms were clean, beds comfortable, and there was a Keurig coffee maker in our room! The bathroom was very spacious and the showers were awesome. A safe would have been helpful to store passports, money and small electronics instead of lugging everything around while touring. A small refrigerator would have been a good enity to have. My 5 yr old grandson had milk and snacks that needed c
Central location and near Union Station.
Location is good and central. Price was o.k.-ish. Doormen friendly. front desk staff was either not friendly (one person) or not very competent (second person). Bathroom was not cleaned well on arrival and cleaning person wasn't friendly, either. Won't stay here again.
The proximity to downtown D.C. and the monuments was perfect! We loved that there were a few coffee shops and restaurants nearby, especially the Dubliner, an Irish restaurant and bar, that was situated right under the hotel itself. Staff was incredibly nice and the hotel was very clean - we plan to stay here whenever we come back to visit! The only downfall is that walking around the area at night can be a little questionable, especially going to or coming from downtown D.C. It's eerily quiet.
The hotel itself was pleasant despite being under repair such as an out-of-service elevator. The convenient location was key for us as we arrived and departed through Union Station, just a couple of blocks away. It's also reasonable walking distance to the capital building, China Town, Verizon Center, Pennsylvania Avenue, etc. The room was small but the bed and room were clean and comfortable. The desk staff were friendly and accommodating. The amenities were bare bones. No frig in room, no comp breakfast or wine hour. The fitness center was a little lacking as well: small space and there were free-weights, but no benches on which to use them. The water pressure in the shower was very weak. It was like trying to shower with a toy squirt gun. Check-in could have been a bit smoother: we arrived around noon, so we had previously requested an early check-in (normal check-in is 3:00 PM and this is not explicitly stated until you complete your booking). We were told over the phone early check-in would not be possible. Once we arrived, we went to the hotel anyway to see if we could store our bags. It turned out we were able to check in early, so I'm not sure why were initially told that early check-in was not possible. Service at the restaurant was poor. We went for lunch after checking in. I ordered a drink after we were seated and I did not receive it until after we were finished eating and had received the check. There was some kind of problem with their taps. They were apologetic and did provide the drink for free since it took so long, which was nice.
The location, the historic building and furnishings, and the connected Irish Pub in the building. Fantastic location! The amenities were bare bones. No frig in room, no comp breakfast or wine hour. Only one set of small bathroom toiletries. Room was dusty. Only one elevator working (under construction). Could offer coffee or iced tea or lemonade in lobby.
Close to Union station. Close to bus stops NO Microwave; No small fridge
Comfortable rooms, helpful staff. Private setting with an interesting bar. The night we were there the bar was very busy and noisy yet the noise was completely isolated from the lobby. Irish themed, the bar had an excellent selection of beers and whiskeys. We didn't try the restaurant, so I can't give an opinion. The Phoenix Park is an excellent choice, especially for business travelers. Nothing - good place to stay.
I liked the location and apparence about buiding, is a Tresaure of tourism in America. Bravo!
The room was small but the bed and room were clean and comfortable. The desk staff were friendly and accommodating. Restaurant staff were poor. I sat for 10 minutes at the restaurant outside on the patio. Several waiters came by. No one would wait on me and it wasnt busy. I left.
The room was beautiful and clean. The location was excellent. All the hotel staff were Grundy and courteous. Other room's room service trays sitting in the hallway for more than 24 hrs. Unbelievable that they charged $4 for the water bottles in the room. Tried to go for a drink in the pub, staff were not attentive; sat for over 15 mins without getting asked what we wanted or asked about drinks; simply left and no one noticed.
Staff were very accommodating. Room was rather small, but very comfortable and immaculate. Restaurant and pub attached to hotel and cafe just down the corner. 5 minute walk to Union Station. Only thing missing was coffee maker in the room.
The hotel itself was pleasant despite being under repair such as an out-of-service elevator and an out-of-service ice machine. When I checked out, they tried to charge me for six nights when I had stayed five. When I pointed this out, there was no apology. Mistakes can be made, but overcharging by hundreds of dollars is a very big mistake and deserves some serious groveling. I waited about five minutes for them to correct this, but they couldn't even get logged into the computer. I told them I'd be in the breakfast room and to bring me the corrected receipt. After half an hour, there was still no corrected bill. I went back to the desk to ask about it. This time I got a mumbled "I'm sorry," but I wasn't sure if it was for overcharging or for taking so long. It seems they overcharged everyone in the hotel, and I was just the first to notice. They were sorting out the mess. Besides a serious apology, you'd think they'd be thankful to me for alerting them to a massive problem before they had a lobby full of irate guests. You might think they would at least offer to pay for my breakfast while had to wait so long, if not offering a free night. I got nothing but a long wait. I eventually got my corrected receipt and ran and caught my train to the airport by just one minute.
Perfect location for us. We loved the gracefully aged quality. The room was home like!!
My room was apparently newly remodeled, and was very modern, exceptionally clean, and very comfortable. The location - just two blocks from the parks surrounding the Capitol on the senate side, are hard to beat. It's a short block walk to Union Station if arriving via train or Metro. There is very little to the hotel other than the rooms - I didn't use the fitness center or the Dubliner restaurant next door, but if you are just looking for a convenient, impeccable room this is a great choice. I'll definitely return. Via the phone and their web site, they required a 3-day minimum stay. Fortunately booking via Kayak let me book a single night, or I would have had to stay somewhere else.

Staff was helpful and professional. Room spacious and newly renovated. Only issue was location - although convenient to Union Station, it was a bit further away for my business needs.
The distictive character common to all Kimpton hotels. The room was dark and a bit gloomy.
Perfect location for leisure activities in the area. No fan in the bathroom, and the additional room fee ($20 per night) just seemed silly.
I liked the convenience to sights and the fact on street parking was not hard to find during the weekend.
I liked the location, nearby everything Because of the location I feel the hotel is mostly hype! Soo many extra little fees I didnt know about room service was $20 extra on top of the bill why?! Because the president eats there -____- I got a good deal but the hotel but it wasnt all that
The location was perfect. No
Excellent location- 2 blocks from capital, wonderful staff, one of the best places ever stayed at.
The staff and location were both terrific. Staff were upbeat, friendly, helpful. Never took us more than 10 minutes or so in a taxi to get to the national mall. Bathroom had sliding door that left about two open inches on either side. From the wrong angle, you can see into the closed door from the outside and hear everything going on in the bathroom. Stuck me with a $20/night 'hotel fee,' w/o explanation.
Amazing staff, great location Nope :)
