At $229/night this hotel was not "a deal" but few good ones are in DC. It was a very nice, upscale, clean, inviting hotel in a great location - about 3 blocks from the Capitol and 5 blocks to Union Square. Had a lovely, spacious corner room (802) with a peek at the Capitol dome. Had breakfast in the restaurant...

We got a decent rate with a groupon. The location of this hotel cant be beat. We walked to the capital, the National Mall etc. Our room was on the 16th floor and had a view of the capitol, just like in the ads! The staff was nice. Our room overlooked the firestation but was not too noisy. Paint was...

We'd book this hotel again just because of Tyrone one of the many doormen at the Court. Exceptional location, taxi's are cheaper then New York, LA and Chicago!! a three minute walk upto Union Station where you catch the subway, and sight seeing tours. DO NOT RENT A CAR!! it's a total waste of money, the subways and taxi's are...

The hotel has a certain charm. If it were in a different location it would quite nice. It sadly is in a bad spot. To get to a metro station you must walk through an area that is full if the homeless. I think there must be at least one shelter very close by. Staff was great, it's clean, beds...

I think I just stayed at probably one of the best hotels at a reasonable price in Downtown DC. Although the location is not the most desirable due to a lot of poor folks roaming around, the hotel is just beautiful. Our room was spacious and the the service was spectacular. My kids thoroughly enjoyed the stay. I wish I...

Purchased a room from Hotwire at a relatively low price and learned it was to be at the Washington Court Hotel. It's not mentioned in the popular Washington DC guide books but fortunately it was listed in TripAdvisor. The property is well-located and within walking distance of the National Mall and Union Station. There is also a City Bikeshare stand...

We stayed here while attending a conference at the convention centre. We walked everywhere from this hotel, we also did cab it a couple of times, which was probably still cheaper than a rental car and the crazy parking rates. We used the metro as well, which is conveniently located to the hotel. Overall, the location was the best attribute...

My son and I had a weekend road trip to DC so read every review I could before deciding on location and booking. The research totally payed off in choosing the Court Hotel. First off I found a ridiculously cheap price online which weighed heavily in the decision. Note most DC hotels are cheaper on weekends as the bulk of...

I just love the hotel and specially its the Close to Union station which is a plus as I flew in to BWI. Easy walk to Capitol, National Gallery, etc. Easy check-in. Crab bisque in restaurant very tasty. Room is basic. Nice bed and bathroom. Thin walls, was awakened by very loud lady talking about sight-seeing around 4:30 am.
