recently stayed on an overnight visit to DC. checked-in tired after doing the National Mall tour on foot and dozed. After an hour or so we discovered valuables & cash missing from a bag and made a report to the hotel and hotel security investigated. They said only our keys were used during the time of loss, so the door...

We just had a 5 night stay and really enjoyed our stay there. I thought housekeeping, in particular, were very helpful and efficient. Great location for the National Mall and they have the most comfortable beds! We had the best time in Washington DC over the Memorial Weekend and staying at the WCH made it that much more enjoyable.

Stayed here the night before the Rock N Roll marathon this past March. The location was fantastic to the mall and the Capitol especially. Plenty of restaurants were not far. We did not eat in the hotel but there was a restaurant there. Rooms were clean and seemed very up to date! Would definitely come back and recommend to friends.

I stayed in the fall of 2012, and had a great trip. The rooms were very nice, although somewhat small. Realistically though, it's DC, and we spent more time walking around than we did in our room, so size wasn't an issue at all. The hotel is very convenient to the mall, but it does put you at the capital...

Got a great rate on Priceline and my partner and I enjoyed a pleasant weekend a the Washington Court. Very large, clean room with a view of the Capitol done. The bathroom was especially large for a hotel with a bathtub as large as ours at home. Perfect for soaking my tired legs after trudging all over DC. The room...

Nice location close to the Capital and The Mall but not much around the hotel. (e.g. Stores/restaurants) Short walk from Union Station but it is very disorienting when you walk out of the station. In addition to there being a a circular street in front of the station, the streets go off in multiple directions. A policeman sort of gave...

Just booked using Hotwire and got stuck with Washington Court. My trip is in two weeks, but already upset that parking will be $46/night, no free breakfast ($13/person), no free wi-fi in room, and it's located near a homeless shelter. My fault for having reasonable, industry-standard, expectations and using a website like Hotwire.

On a spur-of-the-moment decision, we called the Washington Court to book a room for that night. The woman we spoke to was very friendly, found us the best rate, and gave up tips on our first trip to DC. When we arrived, we were greeted by friendly valets and the front desk staff was amazing. The man working told us...

This hotel has some significant plus factors, but has several minor irritations that add up. The location is convenient for sightseeing, lobby area is pleasant and comfortable with large marble expanses,( this does not mean elegant.) For a hotel aiming at tourists, there are no safes in the rooms and no magnifying mirrors for make-up. Each of my 2 nights...
