Grand Dame a Little Down at the Heels

A beautiful old building, fantastic location and spacious room were big pluses. On the negative side: the most recent renovation was sloppy and apparently long ago. My room had peeling wallpaper and scuffed bathroom tiles, as well as door hinges and hardware that had been painted over. Another off-putting note: a florescent-lit lobby that smelled consistently of fried food.

Meh

Nice enough hotel for the conference, just a bit on the older side. Room was fine, annoyed that I had to ask to have breakfast removed from my bill twice when it was already included in the room rate.

Overnight business trip

I've walked by the Churchill many times over the years, but never stayed there. With pretty much every other hotel in the district booked solid, I reserved a room. The hotel is fine; just fine. The rooms and the lobby need some updating, but it's the lay-out that takes some getting used to. The elevators are located off the lobby, around a blind corner, and down a very narrow (but short) hallway. The elevators are reminiscent of the 1970s. The "free" wifi is incredibly slow (even for downloading emails with attachments), as is the first level of upgrade ($5). I paid an additional $4 ($9 total) to get to a decent speed. If you can get a cheap rate and not looking for a romantic stay, the Churchill will be fine.

Clean and comfortable.

Very friendly and helpful staff. TV was very basic, with limited programming. Free internet was slow, should've got the upgrade. Best thing about the location was it's across the street from the expensive Washington Hilton, which has a great coffee shop and lobby with free Wifi.

Great location, historic hotel

Great location, very friendly staff, good value on site restaurant, but starting to look a little rundown compared to past years. Corner bathroom was quite cold and had no direct heat vent that I could identify. I had to add water to the barrier-free bathroom in-floor drain ( not shower drain) in order to seal the plumbing trap against backflow of septic odors. I recommend, but with caveats.

Easy come, easy go!

This was near my meeting and available on the last minute. Easy booking online and easy check in and out. Room 314 is behind elevator but older building meant little noise from shaft. Had an issue with tub drain but nothing haven't had at other chains. Front desk was helpful. I can stay here again.
