    Most ot the restaraunts of all types are over in china town. Not much near hotel. Starbucks is very close across street along with a couple of small diners for great inexpensive breakfast or lunch.

    Great value

    Booked this for $209 and it was a great deal. Very nice room, super-comfortable bed, my room was very quiet, shower worked great, all typical amenities provided. Near Union Station. For the price, it was excellent.

    great place but....

    Let it be known that parking per night is $48 and wifi for your room is $12 per device, other than that was a great hotel.

    Nice Trip

    Very nice place to stay. The Capitol and Monument were real close. Just be ready for no parking in Washington. The valet service at the hotel was 48.00 a/night. Wow!

    Great Hotel for the Price

    The hotel was clean, comfortable, and centrally located, but the staff truly set the hotel apart. Every staff member we came in contact with went out of their way to be friendly and helpful, which made for a very enjoyable stay.

    Excellent bang for buck

    This is a centrally located hotel with modern furnishings. Walkable distance to Union train/metro/bus station and to the Mall area. Our only complaint is that the hotel seems to be short staffed; we came across some minor inconveniences with the night manager and bell boy. But all in all, this is a fantastic place to stay for its price.

    nice business trip

    The Liason was a nice choice for a brief (one night) business stay. It was a lovely hotel in a good area but a little pricey for my taste. I was made to feel welcome, the room was neat and clean but it was more expensive than nicer hotels in different cities. Of course, D.C. has higher room rates than other larger cities, but it was still a bit steep for me.

    Great experience, highly recommend.

    I have stayed at "boutique" hotels before and this one is one of the best. The price was good considering the location and the other hotels in the area. The bathroom was a little small, but was adequate for what you need it for; and the towels were not like some hotel "sandpaper" towels.. The bed, sheets and pillows were great. Great little deli "The West Wing" down the block as well as a liquor store right next door. Loved every aspect of the hotel.

    Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

    2.5 blocks from Union station, we took the Metro from Reagan National, even with 2 bags to roll it was just fine. Saved $70 in cab fare!
