Not for families

Would not recommend Fri, Apr 5, 2013
The hotel itself is just okay - pictures look nicer than reality. Worn and in need of some TLC. Location is great but if you have small children I'd look elsewhere - we requested a Pack n Play several times and it never came (finally gave up), the bathroom door is very easy for little hands to lock (requiring a call and 20 minute wait for maintenance to come unlock it) and despite best efforts to keep children quiet, we got several complaints of noise - including one at bedtime when all were quiet in bed. They either need to segregste families with kids to one area or institute a no-children policy. The doors need slow-closing hinges installed, right now they just slam quickly if you don't catch it - our 2 year old unfortunately got his finger caught in it at one point. The icing on the cake was the erroneous $70 charges in adult movies we were charged for but never rented, requiring a 20 minute discussion with the front desk before being removed. Will not be staying here again.

Fantastic family getaway

Would recommend Wed, Apr 3, 2013
Clean, elegant rooms. High floors have a stunning view of the capitol. Superb staff--concierge helped us to plan the whole stay. Minutes from union station--walk, take metro or cab to all attractions. Taking one point off because there is no wireless in the room, and breakfast is not included--fork out $$ for in room connection. Free in lobby (which is beautiful). Everything else makes up for it. Other than that, just perfect!

Time saver

Short, five minute walk to union station.

Close to Union Station has some visitor advantages, some disadvantages

Would recommend Sat, Mar 30, 2013
Not having been to Washington DC in 25 years, I wasn't sure what the best location would be for a Spring break vacation with our grandson. I chose the Washington Court because it is close to Union Station and the Capitol building (and related congressional buildings plus the Supreme Court & Library of Congress). The Union Station location was good because we picked up our hop on/hop off tour there. Although we planned to use the subway, we never did but Union Station would have been good for that too. We didn't have time to visit all the nearby sites we had planned to visit but our Union Station location did not appear to be the best with respect to being close to many of DC's visitor attractions. I don't think it's a big deal if you're using a tour or the subway but it's out of the way for a lot of walking. There don't appear to be a lot of nearby restaurants either. The staff was great. Friendly, competent. The room was ok. Reasonably spacious and well appointed. The bathtub had a big repaired ding in it and the drain was very slow. The breakfast buffet was ok but nothing special. The room cost was very good.

Attractions

The Interactive Flight Simulator ride at the Air & Space Museum is great for the kids. We have the non-interactive simulator at our California Science Center in Los Angeles (which is also available at the Museum) but the interactive is much better and more popular. Hint: do not go on it right after lunch.

Quick Weekend Get-Away in Comfortable Spot

Would recommend Tue, Mar 26, 2013
Visiting son in college for the weekend and after having tried a few different hotels in DC area, was very pleased with Washington Court. While a well established hotel, it does have 'good bones'. Beds very comfortable, bathroom spacious, welcoming and bright lobby, and fun bar. The one negative is that a room service tray was left for two days along our hall way. Otherwise, comfortable and staff was professional.

Visiting my son

Would recommend Tue, Mar 12, 2013
At the last minute I decided to extend a flight layover in Washington DC, to allow for a short weekend visit with my son. He now works in DC and I wanted a convenient place for a quick overnight stay. By going online I was able to get a fantastic last minute deal on this four star hotel. Although my room was not available upon my arrival, everything about the hotel was incredible. A beautiful and comfortable room, just two blocks from Union Station. You walk out of the hotel and immediately see the majestic U.S. Capitol just a few blocks away. I highly recommend the Washington Court Hotel!

Attractions

The U.S. Capitol and Union Station are just a few blocks away.

Great Location, Average Stay, Not great staff

Would not recommend Thu, Mar 7, 2013
Stayed here for a conference on site. First room we got smelled of smoke even though the hotel has a no-smoking policy. The front desk staff were quick to change this for us. Rooms were spacious. Our comforters had some stains on it though. No free wifi in the rooms. Seems like something that every hotel should have nowadays. Bar staff made an inappropriate comment that detracted us from going back to the bar the second night. Overall, great location but would probably pick a different hotel the next time we're in the area.

Dining

Restaurants don't open until 11 or 12 on weekends!

Nice plan

Would recommend Mon, Jan 14, 2013
My friends and I went to DC for a new year's trip. We really enjoyed our stay at Washington Court. The staff was very nice and professional. The room was clean and the location was great. Would choose there if I revisit DC.
