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.

I arrived at 11pm after a long trip, and they did not have my pre-paid room. They "walked" me to another hotel 5+ miles away--very inconvenient and caused me to lose sleep, and have to rush to my morning appointment to beat traffic. No compensation was given. Use extreme caution booking this hotel. They do not honor their commitments, and...

I've been to DC on other occasions and always needed to take the Metro for meetings. Not this time. Everything was in walking distance...and walking is healthier. Plenty of space in the rooms, comfortable beds and although they had a charge for wireless internet, the free internet from the lobby worked in my room on the 7th floor. I didn't...

Hard to make reservations but once you're checked in you're treated like royalty. Great service, especially Paul at the desk. The food was great. It is near and I mean within walking distance of many sights.
