It took me awhile to get around to writing this review without being to critical. My wife travels for work and I sometimes travel along with her. Since neither of us have ever been to Washington DC I thought I would tag along. I contacted the Washington Court Hotel's general Manager a few months in advance of our trip, with...

This hotel is close to the Capitol and Washington conference centre. The door staff and reception team were welcoming. There is a huge lobby with bar. My room on the 15th floor was large and well appointed. There is a large television, safe box, mini bar, iron and shower. A coffee maker is available on request but free coffee is...

The group the hubs was in town with booked a block of rooms at this hotel as they were doing business at the Capitol and the proximity cannot be beat (and Union Station right there as well). The lobby bar is nice and decent selection of drinks. Rooms nice enough. Found the staff to be not so terribly service oriented,...

Enjoyed our stay at WCH! Most impressed with the staff. I only had breakfast here and the corn beef hash was really homemade. You need to ask for coffee maker and glasses for you room, this is not in the rooms automatically. This hotel is geared for business than leisure. I'm here to see D.C. , so to me it...

Close to the Capital this hotel offers easy access to tourist sites. I found the hotel lobby was very nice as well as the room. The bed was great and the TV had a good selection of channels. I could hear more from the room next door than I wanted to. It would have been about perfect if the room...

I visited DC in April. The staff upon checking in were very helpful. I had requested in my reservation a Capitol view. The person checking me in had me wait a few minutes, and then was able to accommodate my request. Very pleased with the view. Room was updated and clean. Nice shower in the bathroom. Within walking distance of...

Excellent staff, clean and updated rooms, and the location can't be beat. I have stayed here several times for conferences and always appreciate being at such a nice hotel. The front desk staff went out of their way to help me out.

At check in, not customer focused staff, actually acted like they didn't care if we checked in or not, after 3.5 hours wait for room (that we booked 3 months in advance for an upgraded room), our room was very outdated, needed repairs, AC didn't cool room adequately. Bathroom door was broke, wouldn't close. Closet so small, couldn't hang up...

The hotel was very comfortable - rooms were nice, modern and remodeled. The fitness room was a bit disappointing but it was a decent size -- pretty good equipment - just a bit dungeon like. We enjoyed hanging out in the lobby -- and public TV viewing areas - great vibe.
