Hidden gem in the big city

I can't say enough about this beautiful European-type hotel. What a wonderful surprise! It was a perfect choice for our sister's weekend away -- good location, beautiful room, great decor and all came at a great price. The staff was fantastic and check-in/check out was a breeze. The room is a little small, but has everything you could need and more. There is even a bathroom floor light that turns on when you enter the bathroom in the dark -- very helpful at night! The hotel was very quiet and quaint and ideal for our evening out in Adams Morgan/Dupont area. This is probably not the best choice for children but perfect for an adults weekend. Very romantic and I can't wait to return with my husband.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Dupont Circle is about 10 blocks, within walking distance. There is a hill when returning to the hotel, but the bus stops about 2 blocks away from the hotel. Also, the metro is located at Dupont Circle, so it is convenient and inexpensive to go and visit the sites of DC.

Perfect

This is a small boutique hotel, situated in a residential area - a stone's throw away from several restaurants. Dupont Circle area. Stayed here w/another couple (in our 30s) it was perfect for us. Staff was great, free wine reception every evening at 6pm. (they do not sell wine/alcohol ever) Nice cappuccino machine in lounge offering free cappuccinos, lattes, espressos all day/night. Lounge area is very comfortable and warm. Good size bathrooms, nice clean hotel. Would definitely stay again and recommend.

Really pleased

This was the first of 5 trips to DC with grandchildren when they reach 9. (There really isn't a GOOD age to take grandchildren on a trip - under 6 and they don't remember anything and 6 and over they rather be playing Angry Birds or texting friends). The Normandy is a really nice boutique hotel and even firstborn grandson enjoyed it. We particularly liked the evening wine and cheese. Only complaint is that the rooms are too small for two full sized beds, and the bed was too soft for my liking.

Nice, Quiet

Nice, quiet location northwest of Dupont circle. Near a number of places to eat; a fair walk to the Metro. For our purposes, the location was great, but its a fair distance to the White House and Mall area. Good staff. There's a continential breakfast, which isn't cheap but it includes cereals, fresh fruit, bagels, breads, juices, fresh coffee machine, and lots of smoked salmon! Pleasant back and front outdoor areas. Nice neighborhood for a stroll as well, with interesting architecture. We were at a conference; the Normandy was nearby and a nice getaway without the conference crowd and noise. We did have what seemed like a smaller room, and besides the closet, it didn't have room to store clothing. Coffee maker, iron and board in room. Automatic, movement detecting bathroom nightlight was a nice, small touch. Had off street parking.

College Trip

My daughter and I stayed at this hotel for college visits. The people there could not have been nicer and helped us out with everything we needed/wanted. Gave us advice for sight seeing etc.... Loved the complimentary hot drinks available at any time during the day, which we definitely took advantage of. The beds were really comfortable. Would definitely stay here again

Best value for money If you book online

Clean, friendly and very cosy place. The first hotel i have been to where you actually want to hang out in the loby. They forgot to mention that the breakfast is not included but cost an extra 18 dollars if you have booked the room online. Next time i will eat at a cafe in the area around although i must say it was a good breakfast.
