Have stayed at the Washington Court twice - both times for work and on the month of February. The location is great-was able to see many sites around Capitol Hill when I was not attending workshops. The rooms are clean and neat with comfortable beds. There are plenty of places to eat nearby, including at Union Station which is just...

After the hotel in New York this was an eye opener. Walked in the lobby, turned to my wife, we're in the wrong hotel aren't we? Amazing, room amazing, area amazing. 10 min walk from station. Great breakfast place round corner and bus stop on corner to downtown area . Can't recommend this hotel enough, the value for money outstanding....

This is a wonderful hotel. Right in the heart of it all. Around the corner from union station and the Postal Museum. Great Staff. Very friendly and helpful. Our room was perfect for 4 adults to share. And the beds were comfortable. There is no pool, however we were so busy going to all the museums that we wouldn't have...

Beautiful hotel !!! Lobby was very big and open. Free wifi was a bonus. Extremely close to the capital. Great price. 2 blocks from metro which helped since we took it from airport. Basically can take the metro anywhere. Very clean and new rooms! Pool table was a plus.staff super nice

Made last minute plans for the Labor Day weekend and stayed here because it was only a 10 min. walk from Union Station. Very pleased with the location, staff and room. The hotel was reasonably priced, clean with a great bar in the lobby. The bathroom was good-sized but could use a little updating. Missing was a fridge in the...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is absolutely lovely with a slightly urban "buzz" and feel. The staff was very pleasant with five star customer service! I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the DC area.

This was an encore visit to the Washington Court Hotel. We haven't found a better location only a few blocks to the Union Station and Metro line. The room we found ourselves in this time was on the front of the hotel, so we experienced a lot of street noise (last time we were on the side and it was...

My husband and I stayed here last month for a business trip and short vacation. The hotel is a few blocks from the train station, which was a fine place to park the car (rather than valet at the hotel). The lobby is quite large, the furniture worn. We sat there frequently to check email since they do not offer...

What can I say about this hotel that doesn't say it in my review title, it's well located! You are close by to the Metro if you don't want to walk everywhere and also the pick ups for the trolley and tour buses are around the corner. We didn't actually have any of our meals at the hotel but the...
