Slum quality hotel. Needs cleaning & renovating. Heat and internet service erratic/. I arrived during a snow storm -- the steps were very icy and dangerous -- nobody had come out to put down sand or salt. The description in the brochure "newly renovated historic boutique hotel" bears no resemblance to the reality.

My friends and I really enjoyed ourselves at the District. The friendly staff, close proximity to the Mall, restaurants and bars as well as the clean and comfortable rooms all make the District an excellent place to stay.

We had a great stay at The District. The staff was really helpful and extremely friendly and our room was great. The building was very secure and located in a very nice neighborhood - some cool bars, good coffee shops. Not knowing the city at all, we were expecting a bit of a journey to get to all the sights...

Agree with prior posts that if you are expecting a 5 star hotel at bargain prices, you will likely be disappointed. If you are more realistic and are expecting a clean and safe place to stay with a helpful staff, then the District fits the bill! My room was especially tiny, but as I was there for work all I...

You know, I really want to like this place because it is a decently priced hotel in Washington. While it has been painted and recarpeted, the mechanical systems still leave a lot to be desired. I have stayed at the District twice in the past 6 months and had the same problem both times. No AM hot water! Plenty of...

Hotel is ok place to stay. They have a few more renovations to go through. The staff is extremely friendly and will help with any of your tourist needs. However, there is little to no parking in the area. They are close to downtown some things are in walking distance and some things are not depending on how far you...

My stay at the District Hotel was wonderfully spent. The staff was friendly and helpful, they went out of their way to assist me. The morning front desk clerk is very kind. It is a reasonable price for a state of the art hotel that's close to every amenity in Washington DC.

Incidentally, I hadn't read reviews prior to staying here and decided solely based on price. However, I must say that I enjoyed my stay. The location was very ideal. All local attractions are within a 15 minute walk (White House, Smithsonian). Now, that is close! It's also very close to the metro underground subway system. The staff were also very...

I wish I had seen these reviews before booking The District Hotel. The lobby has been tastefully renovated; however, my room was rife with problems. The public hallway outside of my room was littered with dismantled shelving and leftover holiday decorations which had been taken down. It looked like a storage area. Next to my room was the back service...
