    Great central location to move about Washington DC

    The hotel is located in the heart of DC, just 2 and a half blocks to Union Station, which has Metro access, a food court, restaurants and stores. The National Mall which includes Capitol Hill and the Smithsonian museums are a 10 - 30 minute walk away depending on which attraction you would like to see. The hotel rooms were clean, comfortable, well kept and the staff very friendly. Although the hotel was recently renovated there are still some areas that could be upgraded a bit, including the elevators. Having internet access included with the room would have been a great plus instead of having to pay additional for it.

    Modern and very accessible

    The hotel interior is very modern n chic. The staff are very responsive and helpful. I complained about a non functioning coffee maker and light bulb and they had staff knocking at our room in 10mins. Valet parking is $48 per night with n and out privileges which is about the usual rate for hotels in the area. Wireless Internet is expensive at $13 per day per device. Most other hotels will allow you 2-3 device in a room. It's location is very close to Capitol Bldg. It is about 5 mins walk to Union Station where you easily get on the Metro Subway to visit other parts of DC or hop on the tour buses or trolley.

    Great location and spacious room

    I had to request a fridge to our room, which was kind of odd for a four star hotel. The bathroom is small, although the room is spacious. I thought they would have a standing shower, but they had a tub.

    Good spot for walking the Mall, overpriced room.

    Overall the hotel was ok, it was a great location for us: Fly into Regan, 15 dollar cab ride to the hotel, spent the next 4 days walking the mall going to museums, etc. Room was a touch on the shabby side, 8 HD channels on the TV was rather pathetic and the other channels didn't come in well. The door to the room didn't shut well and had pretty good gaps and let a lot of noise in, the rooms were very noisy. Not a lot of food choices near the hotel so you need to make sure you eat while you are out. Additionally for the price which was a little high they sure try to nickle and dime you. 15 dollars a day for WIFI? are you kidding me? If you are like us and are professionals who don't get to turn off work because you are on vacations, I would recommend a different hotel with more free amenities so working while on vacation isn't so painful.

    Awesome Hotel!

    The Liaison was awesome. Check in and valet were quick and easy. The room was modern yet comfortable with great amentities. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We were staying for a concert at the Verizon Center and the hotel's location was an easy cab ride with a hilarious cab driver to top it off. WiFi is available for $12 a day but is fast and reliable. I'd definitely recommend this hotel for a pleasant travel experience!

    functional, well located

    The hotel is located close to museums and Congress, but note that the restaurants are over by the White House. The style of the hotel and rooms is a bit stark and functional.

    The hotel was good and close to the museums but there is a homeless shelter very close by. If you manage to stay away from E street it should be ok to walk around at night. The staff was nice and the hotel was very clean.
