close to Metro, quiet area, easy access to most of the sites.

Nice old building, well maintained and clean. Close to two Metro stations, and city center. Not much in area as far as dining spots, but Starbucks around the corner for morning coffee and sweets! Nice room, beddings and bathroom. We would stay there again..

Starbucks for morning coffee if you chose to give the Lombardy cafe a miss. Hotel restaurants were quite pricey so we avoided them and ate elsewhere. Food court in Metro station just up the street is good. Nice area to walk in , seems safe and well maintained. Close to most sites if you are a walker, or Metro if you are not. Helpful staff.

Wonderful Stay

Our stay at the Hotel Lombardy was wonderful. Excellent location, close to two metro stations, easy to get anywhere in DC. Great shower and wonderful bed--two things we love. The morning coffee in the room is NOT complimentary. It costs $5 daily so keep that in mind. The staffwere good, desk people not as friendly as maids, elevator and door men, who were wonderful.

Charming Hotel

The Lombardy was a charming hotel inside and outside, 1st class, friendly staff, very clean . . . excellent location, easily accessible to attractions in DC yet in a quiet, safe area of town within walking distance to restaurants, shops and sightseeing. The staff was very helpful in giving me directions and advice on sightseeing. It made my short vacation even more enjoyable. I wished I could have stayed longer.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Hotel provides valet parking, if space is available . . . not guaranteed. There are several parking garages near hotel at cheaper rates if desired. It was worth it for me to pay extra and have hotel park and deliver car back to me. I used metro and taxi during visit in DC. This was easy to arrange and metro stop was within couple of blocks from hotel.

We loved this hotel!

The hotel was charming, quaint but most of all the staff was sooo friendly and helpful. The front desk employees always went out of their way to lead you in the right direction. The location was 3 blocks from the White House and convenient to the Metro & public transportation. The rooms were clean and quiet! After a long, hot day you need that. I would highly recommend this hotel and will stay there again.

Wonderful couple getaway with charm and comfort

This old elegant hotel is situated in an excellent location, close to all the major sites and public transportation. It has been nicely updated with modern amenities while it maintains its old ambiance and charm. Our room was small but quiet and impeccably clean. The staff was extremely polite and efficient. This was our second stay and we are happy to recommend this hotel without reservations.

Excellent all round hotel - for both business and pleasure travellers

This hotel was just what I wanted as the location was perfect for me as I was in Washingrton primarily to visit the Kennedy Centre and it is very easy to get there due to the hotel's proximity to Foggy Bottom Metro where there is frequent and free bus to the Center.
