great location

the hotel was in a great location, a 10 minute walk to the Mall -- a little rundown however. Our room lock was almost hanging out of the frame and was difficult to manoeuvre. Hallways looked in need of sprucing up.

"Visit Washington DC by foot"

Hotel Lombardy is an older hotel with sophisticated European charm. The staff were extremely helpful and pleasant, even when we requested another room farther from the "original" elevator, which was quite noisy. A modern one will be installed soon. We were graciously upgraded to a suite! Both rooms, however, were lovely and spacious with new mattresses. The Restaurant was quaint. Food was good. Service a bit rushed, but adequate. The lounge is warm and inviting. The location is the best for visiting the DC museums. We walked everywhere! George Washington University is just across the street. Overall, we had a top notch experience, and I would highly recommend this hotel to friends!

Historic Hotel is a real winner

It's a very nice and somewhat unique hotel. It is in a fabulous location. The room was nice with a small kitch area to really feel spacious. It's historic as well. The only staff-operated elevator was cute at first, and could have been an issue except they were incredibly prompt in answering. If they had more guests, who knows. But, great room, great price and great location, a real winner.

convienient location

The Hotel Lombardy in Washington is very conveniently located, near all the sights and is a very comfortable stylish hotel. The restaurant attached to this facility is excellent, we enjoyed dining in such friendly surrounding with the really excellent food. The intimate bar has a wonderful ambiance and seems popular with locals too. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The only slight draw back was the old lifts that are manually operated. We were very pleased with our stay in this friendly hotel.

Sophisticated , but not pricy

The Lombardy hotel was very nice. The room was big with three separate spaces ( bedroom, sitting area near minibar and sitting area with vanity mirror) . Old fashion style, very friendly staff and wonderful food. Close to the Washington mall, but still a 15 minutes walk. Carpet was old and needed to be cleaned.

Classy and comfy

Excellent service, clean and comfortable rooms, with separate powder room and breakfast nook. Many added little touches that set it apart from the others. My only complaint that it did not have an indoor pool, or access to one in a nearby hotel.

My review of Hotel Lombardy

Staying at Hotel Lombardy was definitely a memorable experience-- from the old fashioned elevator to the Lombardy Cafe. The hotel is located in downtown DC-- close to the metro, restaurants and tourist attractions. The majority of the staff was excellent. I was however a bit turned off when I was checking in and the staff was gathered discussing disappointing tips.

Great experience overall

We were very pleased with the historical nature of the hotel and the restaurant was very, very nice. Ambience in the bar was good, and the bartender was very personable. The experience was akin to small European hotels with first class service, cleanliness and reasonable prices.

Very friendly

The Hotel Lombardy was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is an older restored hotel that has much charm and character to it. The restaurant was very good & our service was outstanding. We would recommend this hotel to anyone who wanted to experience a bit of the old with the new. The location is ideal for walking to all the area sites and enjoying the city. We had a wonderful long weekend & look forward to our next visit.
