    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.

    Very nice hotel. Room was clean and the staff was great. The location was also a plus as everything is in walking distance. I do wish the rooms were equipped with refrigerators though. I will definitely stay in this hotel again!

    Great location, nice hotel

    The Liaison is within walking distance of the Capitol, in-room finishes are nice, and the hotel itself is well-maintained. The bathrooms are a bit on the small side, but I have no complaints given that the rates are reasonable.

    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.

    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.
