Great location and sooo cute!

Great location for walking to many of the sites in DC and to Metro. Bed was very comfortable, room was immaculate and I loved the exrtra "little rooms" (kitchen area and dressing room). In addition, very helpful and polite staff. Great bang for your buck!

SUPERB location!!!

Prime location that is only 2 blocks from the White House. It doesn't get any better than this unless you're welling to pay above $400 a night. But why should you when you've found Hotel Lombardy. This hotel is a historic landmark at the center of the city with great restaurants within a couple of blocks. Just to name a few - Circa, District Commons, and Founding Farmers. It's some of the most delicious foods I've eaten in East Coast. Did I mention the bed? It's so comfy. It's in one of the best neighborhoods in Wash. DC and just a short walk from the metro and GWU. Great value and great location!!!

Great short break

Staff were friendly and pleasant. Room was clean and comfortable. Had complimentary bottles of water each evening and apples were available in reception. We did not use the cafe or bar but they appeared to be popular. The hotel was a base for a holiday and the location was great for us. We were only 10 minutes walk from the White House. There was an English themed pub and a food court within 5 minutes walk. Overall it was a great hotel and would stay there again.

Cozy and romantic boutique hotel

Warm and friendly staff and very quiet and cozy quarters - an antique character but with very modern facilities - sometimes hotels described as having "historical charm" are really crumbling buildings with a veneer of remodeling -- that was absolutely not the case here, it was as comfortable and modern and tidy as you could wish for, with new and strong furnishings that put you in mind of a past era. Lots of amenities - electronic safe in room, complete cash minibar, coffee maker, and fridge, Bath & Body Works toiletries, hair dryer, robes, bottled water awaiting on arrival, really good shower, tons of feather pillows, room service, flat-screen TV, wifi (a bit weak in our part of the building, but yes, it was there), a restaurant downstairs, everything from the front door inwards absolutely sparkling clean. Top-shelf housekeeping. In-room spa services available for a fee. Valet parking for a daily fee. So cozy and private we never noticed that anyone else was even there. Close to Founding Farmers cafe (make a reservation!!), Baja Fresh and Starbucks less than two blocks away - half-a-mile to the White House and about a mile to most of the monuments. If you have good walking shoes you can leave your car parked all weekend. Check-in and check-out was easy-peasy. We had a delightful stay. Would stay there again and would recommend it, certainly. The only thing I could point out as a negative was that there was street noise (sirens, garbage trucks) from our room, but that was not a major hassle - it was not constant but did show up sometimes. If you are up for a quiet, cozy, romantic, luxurious and discreet small hotel this is a great place to stay. Would not recommend if you are looking for a party atmosphere or something close to a lot of night life or a club scene, the neighborhood seemed too quiet for that.

Starbucks a couple of blocks away saves time and money at breakfast; it's on the way toward the monuments as well.

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.

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.
