Great hotel

The normandy was a great place to stay when visiting washington d c . It was located in the middle between the national zoo and national cathedral and the monuments and smithsonian museum. Great neighborhood with plenty of shops, restaraunts , and reasonably close to the metro. The staff was helpful, friendly and the rooms were immaculate and comfortable. Not a large room, but perfect for a short visit and well worth the price .

An absolute gem

I never write reviews, but this place was such an awesome find I felt compelled. Fantastic location in a beautiful area of Dupont with a ten minute walk/$6 cab ride to the metro. The staff was incredibly helpful, friendly, and pleasant. The room was a bit small and warm, but super comfortable and beautifully decorated. I can't stress enough what a steal this was for the price.

If going to Metro Center, Union Station, or Capitol Hill areas, save yourself the hassle of the metro as it's a cheap cab fare.

Great overnight get-away

The location was great. It is in a very nice neighborhood within walking distance from restaurants and shops. My husband and I walked to a few restaurants. Parking at the hotel is expensive ($40) street parking is a good alternative. The staff is exceptional and very accommodating. BJ was the night doorman and he was a great resource for information about the hotel and neighborhood. There is a wine and cheese hour from 5-6pm. The only complaint was the room was very hot which made it uncomfortable to sleep. We turned the heat down to 65 and attempted to turn it off but it is not regulated by each room. The window in our room did not open and there were no fans. We would stay in the front of the property when we return because there are French doors and we saw a few windows open. Overall, a great place and we would go back.

Nice stay

I stayed at The Normandy on a business trip. The staff was very helpful and the rooms were clean. My colleague found the pillows really uncomfortable, and the staff purchased a new set for his room.

Beautiful Old Bldg with All Inhering Quirks but Great Wi-Fi

The staff at this hotel is consistently friendly and responsive. Every request I made was responded to within 5 minutes or less. The room is not huge, so not great for families, but roomy enough for an individual or couple. The queen bed was roomy and comfy enough for me and I'm a rough sleeper (tossing and turning is my norm). Two things I missed were drawer space to unpack to and AC. Being an old building, when it's cold they have heat and when it's warm they have AC, but not both. So, when my room got stuffy, I had to open a window. Not so bad as long as it's not raining. Overall, I had a good enough time to be willing to stay there again. Another plus is their two short block proximity to the Washington Hilton where my conference took place.

Stylish but not pretentious

This small older hotel was a fine alternative to a nearby convention hotel. My room was small and lacked a dresser. The bathroom was well appointed. The staff was attentive. The location on a quiet side street was very close to public transportation, restaurants and shops. I did not sample the available wine and cheese, or the extra cost breakfast.

Great Way to stay in DC!

Friendly staff, easy location. We loved the evening wine and cheese gatherings, too. The room was small, but comfortably arranged. With changing outside temps, the room temperature was a bit off during 1 evening and night, but otherwise our stay was pleasant. We would stay at the Normandy again!

Pay attention to the street names on the entrance side of the Metro at DuPont Circle. If you exit south instead of north, you have to cross the circle to head back to the hotel...

Perfect for our trip

I was looking for something unique, not a chain. The Normandy fit that bill. It is in the cutest neighbor, it feels very special and personal. The staff was absolutely outstanding!! The location is terrific - fabulous restaurants within easy walking distance, close to National Mall, and even you don't want to sightsee, you feel like you're visiting an old friend and just want to hang out, go for walks, get some gelato. My only opportunities for improvement - parking, don't stay on the first floor (lighting is terrible for women and putting on makeup) and this is going to sound really picky, but toilet paper - when you are paying this kind of money, staying in a very classy neighbor, I expected more than single ply toilet paper you get in an airport. All in all, we would stay there again.

If you are looking for casual, warm dining experience Maddy's is the place to go and on the way back to The Normandy, you pass a terrific gelato store - you have to stop!!

With its European style, really comfy rooms and great location, it can't get any better than this... unless the price tag was a bit lower :-)
