Hotel Lombardy

The location for sightseeing, getting to Georgetown or DuPont Circle, if you are ok with walking a few blocks, is great and it's not crawling with tourists so is quiet. The rooms are not tiny and the windows in the bathrooms open (I hate steaming the whole place up). I had a kithenette area and little dressing area in addition which was nice.

Get a reservation at Founding Farmers for breakfast, lunch or dinner! It's a block away and a real treat.

Great Location

The very best thing about Hotel Lombardy is the location. We were able to walk to everything we wanted to see. There are pleanty of restaruant choices and a CVS very close. There were also 2 metro stations VERY close and this was great at the end of the day when we were to tired to walk back! The staff was ok but none of them were really what I would call friendly. The room was nice and always very clean but on the small side, which was fine with us since most of our time was spent out looking at the many sites nearby,

Nice hotel and good value for money

I was uncertain about booking this hotel, because it was about half the price of the other hotels in the area. However, I am delighted to say that I really enjoyed my stay, and that it is well worth the money. The rooms aren't large, and the bathroom is a little cramped. However, the bed was extremely comfortable, and the room had everything one needs. My only complaint was that the was quite a lot of traffic noise -at about 04:30 - trucks reversing etc., but that is just a function of being in the middle of city.

A lovely historic hotel

The rooms were large and comfortable, with nice historic touches but overall quite modern. The hotel is a few blocks from the Foggy Bottom metro station, a short walk to downtown and a longer walk to Georgetown. I would definitely stay here again on my next visit to DC.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

You can buy a one-day Metro pass from the fare machines, which is a great deal if you plan to travel around the city. It works all day after 9:30 a.m.
