    Beautiful rooms, great location

    The rooms here were elegant and you couldn't really ask for a better location. It is within walking distance of the Capitol and most of the Smithsonian museums. It was under construction while we were there so there was a lot of noise and it was not as easy to get in and out. The biggest reason I would not come again is the price. Besides the room rates, it is $50 a night for parking and they charge for wifi, although they comped ours since we were on the construction side of the hotel.

    Great Getaway

    I spent 4 nights here, and it was perfect for a single person getaway. It is close to the Metro to get around the city and the rooftop pool, bar, and restaurant were all amazing. The bathrooms are tiny and you don't really have much of a view, but all the other amenities make up for it.

    Perfect sister retreat

    My sister and I enjoyed the hotel. It was awesome. The pool on the roof was awesome, the staff was very friendly, and the location was perfect. We were three blocks away from the capital and the mall. Seriously perfect.

    clean, reasonable and hip

    I stayed here on a Friday and Saturday for very reasonable rates. The rooftop pool was great, the bed not too soft and the staff extremely accommodating. The restaurant and bar were pricey for what you got (typical of a hotel) but the room rate was terrific. They do a good job attempting to be hip, without being ridiculous or snooty.

    Family get-together

    It couldn't have been any better - centrally located, near museums. The only downside was that the hotel garage was full and we had to park a block away, but it was a short block.

    Staff

    I really enjoyed my stay at the Liaison. My room was clean. I loved the in room Keurig. The pillows were oh so comfy!! I can't say much good about the guest service agents - they all gave conflicting information and were not very friendly. It's as if each one was working for a different hotel! I would have appreciated a more informed front desk staff. A little consistency would have been lovely. On the other hand the Concierges, Housekeepers, Restaurant staff and all other staff were very pleasant and most helpful! The Lifeguard and Bartender in the pool area were both amazing also. She makes great mimosas! The pool area is gorgeous by the way! When you go down to the restaurant, Art&Soul, you MUST try the buttermilk lemon pancakes. Heaven. All in all - it's a cool hotel. And hey - maybe the guest service agents were just having a bad 3 days...

    Great experience

    Very nice hotel, clean and comfortable bed, love the bed so much and the headlight was such an awesome design. hotel staff are nice and friendly, very easy going. But the only one thing is the soundproofing wasn't so good, the hotel security was kept on locking our door and saying we are making sounds. but I am staying in a 4 stars hotel and I am paying to make sound isn't it? Even we talk with a regular voice tone but the security still came up and warn us. This is just too ridiculous that we experienced 2 warning during the 12 hours stay.
