Gracious service, original artwork and traditional decor characterize this boutique gem situated in a quiet residential setting.

Nice Stay in the middle of the Embassies in DC

This is a very nice hotel in the DuPont circle area, surrounded by embassies in DC. I went to DC for a professional conference and the hotel provided everything I needed.

Pleasant stay at the Normandy

I spent three nights, mostly attending a conference at the nearby Hilton. My room was very nice and modern, though (perhaps because of early checkin) I got a room overlooking air conditioning equipment on a tar-paper roof -- less exciting than the famous Kalorama views. Comfortable and elegant, with a bathroom I would instantly trade for my home one. Only problems were that I needed help to figure out how to turn on lamps, and the wonderful coffee machine fritzed on day 1 (but was fixed and made excellent Joe after that). I didn't use the public facilities much because of my commitments down the road, but the lounge seemed very pleasant, and the apples at the front desk were delicious. The price seemed high, but then so is most of Washington.

Second time for us - that should speak volumes!

Staff are very welcoming and attentive at all times. Comfy bed, good shower, and attractive decor in room. Lovely homely feel as soon as you enter hotel with candles flickering constantly. Complementary wine, cheese and nibbles every evening 6 - 7pm. On the whole we wouldn't stay anywhere else. Location perfect for buses, trains, eating, sight seeing. Thank you!

Good location and great value.

Nice boutique hotel convenient to Dupont Circle (aprox ten minute walk). Room was clean and comfortable with decent amenities (loved the "Nespresso" machine). There is underground (secure) parking available (for a fee), however, parking spaces are small so may not be suitable for bigger vehicles. If you plan on using the Metro it is best to walk downhill to Dupont Circle and the return via Cleveland Park/National Zoo.

Good place to be

Great location: convenient, safe and nice looking. rooms are small but have most of what you may need, clean, quiet. Bathroom with everything in it was perfect. Lobby has several rooms, fireplace and many guests gather there to talk, relax or have a glass of wine with cheese or tea with sweets, all complimentary. front desk personnel was very helpful. happy I found this place!

Nice place to stay in DC

The Normandy Hotel is a spectacular value. The rooms are well appointed; the scale cozy and human. Everything is tasteful and the staff are very friendly. I had a little bit of a problem with my room being over heated. But I opened the window and things were fine. I let the staff know and they looked into it immediately. Bed was excellent, as was breakfast buffet.
