Charming hotel, would stay again

This is a charming boutique hotel, reasonably priced and located w/in reasonable walking distance of Metro, White House, National Mall, etc. I was initially concerned it would be loud because it is on a busy street and not far from a nightclub but it was quiet in the later evening and we slept very well. We will definitely stay again! Our trip was a long weekend and with easy metro access we were able to get all over the city in short order. If you enjoy walking (we do) the trek to the National Mall is very pleasant and you could spend your entire weekend there.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

If you eat meat at all, even occasionally, you must try Fogo de Chao. It is legendary and reputation is deserved. It is a long walk from the hotel but only a couple of minutes if you take a cab.

Weekend Getaway

The staff were very friendly (even suggested a cheaper parking garage across the street) and the room was great. We dined at Cafe Lombardy for breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Will definitely return to this hotel.

Perfect hotel for our Memorial Day stay

The location of Hotel Lombardy was perfect. We were able to walk to see all the Mall memorials and to nearby Georgetown. The nearby Metro stations made travel throughout the city easy and convenient. The staff was friendly and always helpful. The room was very comfortable with a excellent bed that afforded us a well deserved rest after each day of touring. The Cafe Lombardy served excellent meals with excellent service. Our room only had one chair. An additional chair or sofa would be a nice touch. Highly recommended... would definitely return!

Perfect stay

The staff are really super nice here. The old time elavator with operator was a treat for my ten year old. The room was clean and was really classy. The metro train stop was two blocks away. The White House is three or four blocks away. Georgetown is only about eight blocks away.
