Wife and I stayed at the Washington Court Hotel for 4 nights first week of April 2014. Visiting to see the Cherry Blossoms but we were a week early it seemed this year. Not many blooms open by our departure on April 6. The hotel is wonderfully located just 3 blocks East of the Capital building. Great view of the...

Lovely hotel on Capital Hill. Staff was wonderfully attentive. Location was very convenient. Close to museums, China Town, Union Station. While the rooms are lovely and up to date, I do think that it is getting to be time to renovate the bathrooms. Loose wallpaper, missing hook on bathroom door. We would stay again and recommend it.

A fabulous hotel greatly enhanced by the people they employ. The service was impeccable and the personal attention was greatly appreciated. Very friendly staff who go out of their way to provide a very positive experience. The restaurant is remarkable with the food being wonderful.

A very nice hotel for a conference. Very nice public areas which were excellent for sitting and chatting after meeting; very comfortable room. The restaurant was pleasant enough for a quick bite but the food was not outstanding

Booked this hotel for the price and was not disappointed. Of course you could pick at things but overall, it was a pleasant stay. I take my reviews to heart for what they provide, I don't expect anyone to tuck me in or 5 star treatment when I'm getting a good deal and so on. The pros of the hotel...

We go to DC often, and sorry to say, this was our first stay at the Washington Court, but it will not be our last! Service was great and cleanliness was tops. I believe the bed was the most comfortable hotel bed ever. The hotel is conveniently located to Union Station, the Capitol, superb restaurants, and more. You will not...

Not the first time staying at the Washington Court. Her bones may be aging, but the owners make sure her make up is fresh and her smile is on her face. The staff this year were particularly nice and accommodating. We arrived early and the rooms for our group were not clean yet, but the bellmen efficiently place our luggage...

This hotel has a great location. Walking distance from the train station and to the Capital and mall, Ford's Theatre, and more. Staff was friendly and helpful, especially the doormen. They can really help you out with directions or any other questions you may have. The only drawback is that they don't have a pool. That would have been great...

My son and I were in DC in January for four nights. Our trip's big event was near Capitol Hill and headquartered out of the Capitol Hyatt a half block down. Having stayed at the Hyatt for this same event a few years back, I thought we'd try a smaller hotel in same convenient area (walking distance to Union Station,...

My wife and I have stayed at the Washington Court Hotel on three different weekends and find it an excellent location + very nice hotel. It is very close to all Capitol Hill tourist sites like the Capitol Bldg, Senate, House, Supreme Court, etc--, VERY close (1 block) to Union Station for anyone taking the train to DC, and one...
