    Nice place close to the Nat. Mall

    Pretty nice. There was a mix up, they thought we checked out the day that we checked in, so we were woken up at 8AM when they tried to clean the room. Also no hot tub, which was disappointing.

    Good Value, Nice Hotel Near Capitol

    Very comfortable, clean room at a good price for DC. Convenient to Union Station, Capitol, Metro. I've stayed there twice and will continue to do so when I visit DC.

    Quick Trip

    My husband and I had to take a quick trip to D.C., and we were able to stay at the Liaison. It was one of the nicest hotels I have ever been in! The rooms were amazing and the employees were very helpful and so nice! I would definitely recommend this hotel!

    rooms are nice and modern, but small

    overall this hotel was nice, clean and staff very friendly and accommodating. bathrooms were very small though. also, the rooms dont have refrigerators?? which i found very strange. for a new modern hotel, why no fridge?? we needed to keep things in it. rooftop pool and bar were nice but it rained so there was really nothing else to do. bfast at the hotel restaurant was very good but service was slow. hotel is in a somewhat remote area where no one lives but many tourists. if there was guaranteed sun, i would stay there again in the summer.

    In the heart of D.C.

    The Liaison was located within walking distance of many D.C. sights, located just blocks from the Capitol. It was only a few blocks walk to the Metro, as well, offering access to other parts of the city. The front desk staff and concierge were attentive and helpful. As for the hotel, it was beautiful, with bright, clean rooms and a snazzy lobby. The best part was the rooftop pool and bar -- a great place to relax at the end of the day, or spend the day. The only drawback was WiFi. While it was available for free in the lobby -- at night, it looked like an internet cafe -- you had to pay for access in your room.

    Great hotel, very clean, staff was excellent. My only complaint was the restaurant food was mediocre at best. But with so many restaurants in the area, stay here just enjoy another place for dinner.

    Twosome tours washington DC

    The location was fantastic -- walk out the front door and see the Capitol! We could walk to everything which was a big plus. The one negative was that for a fine hotel not to offer free in-room wireless was a big disappointment. In order to use wireless we has to sit in the busy rather noisy lobby which was most inconvenient. When the amenities said free wireless, I expected that meant throughout the hotel. The staffwas pleasant and helpful, especially the concirge; she helped us with restaurant recommendations and directions. In all, a good pick for our trip.
