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...

We stayed at this hotel because of its location, and the location is really great (2 blocks from Union Station, close to Chinatown and Eastern Market, blocks from the Capitol, Supreme Court and National Mall) - the rooms are fine, the lobby is really nice - although the entire hotel is quite dated - If the hotel was managed well,...

This property is just three short blocks from Union Station (trains, buses, Metro) and only 5 blocks from the Capitol Building. As a family with a young child, we felt comfortable and safe in this neighborhood, which is on the outskirts of Capitol Hill (close to Chinatown). It's a very good value. The staff members are attentive, friendly and helpful....

Great location two blocks from Union Station. We traveled via train from NJ and had original reservations in Alexandria, to avoid the high costs of DC hotels. When the Groupon deal appeared, I was glad since stayiing in town eliminates having to use the metro to pretty much all attractions. We were able to store our luggage upon arrival (before...
