My review of Hotel Lombardy

Overall, staying at the Hotel Lombardy in Washington DC was a great experience. The staff greats you at your car and provides valet parking services since parking is very difficult in the area. The front desk staff is very helpful in providing insight as to sightseeing and local attractions. Whats great about the rooms is that the hotel was previously an apartment complex, so each room is large and has a small kitchen area. I would recommend this hotel for any family or business trip.

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.

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.

Fabulous Boutique Hotel

Staff was friendly and helpful. Hotel restaurant and lounge were great. [...], the maitre 'd at the Cafe Lombardy went out of his way to welcome new guests, notice your preferences and provide charming conversation and service.Bellmen were always at the door to welcome you home! Walkable to all monuments and 5 blocks to White House.

Wonderful place to stay while in DC

Our son attends The George Washington University. This lovely hotel is close to campus and convenient to many sightseeing spots. This is our favorite place to stay when in Foggy Bottom. Highly recommend this hotel!

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.
