great hotel for the price

Beautiful hotel. Wish I could have stayed in town longer. Want to come back soon. And also, room service was reasonable and delicious!

Great service from very nice friendly employees. Took the time to make each person feel like they were the most important guest at that moment.

The City Segway Tour was the greatest. We did it the first night we were there and it familiarized us with the area - and gained us alot of useful information !

Decent Hotel Close to the Capitol

My stay at the Washington Court Hotel was a decent experience. The rooms were clean and newly renovated. Comfy bed with a view of the Capitol building. Some things to note though. First, the plumbing has some quirks. The showers will lose pressure a few times while taking a shower. No temperature change, just the pressure. Also, make sure you've printed everything you need to before leaving home. Their "business center" charges for computer time ($10 for 10 minutes!) and to print! Definitely a shocker after staying mostly at Courtyard by Marriot hotels where this is free. The other weird thing was the flat screen HD TV's in the rooms. They're HD but all the channels are analog (not HD). So, overall a decent hotel with a pretty good location, 2 blocks from Union Station (the Metro subway is excellent and a real time saver) and 3 blocks from the Capitol. Note that the entrance to Union Station and the nearby Postal museum seems to be a hang-out for the area homeless after dark. Nobody gave me any problems but it's something to be aware of if you're traveling alone.

Washington Court Hotel review

Great location for sightseeing and heading down to Nationals Park. VERY convenient to Union Station and the museums, Capitol building, White House, The Dubliner Pub, etc. Also -- extremely quick exit to 295 to leave town.

Not the Best...

Easy walk to Union Station. Close to Capitol. Very disappointed that EVERY vending machine, on every floor, was out of water for the three days we stayed! Called to ask for some, staff seemed uninterested and directed me the the hotel store where it was double the price! Rooms were vaguely cleaned. Bathroom floor never swept. Dishes sat in hall for two days!

Take the short walk to Union Station and enjoy the food! Recommend taking the hop-on/hop-off tour bus.

DC Family Trip

We had a great experience with the hotel. One or our travelers had a knee problem the first day out and the hotel accommodated us with the hotel wheel chair so that we could get around the city. We could not have asked for better service.

Good room, beds small

Very friendly front and bell staff. The rooms were clean and decent size, but the beds were small. Location was excellent, right off Capitol Hill. The restaurant had mediocre food for breakfast, OJ not fresh, waiter nowhere to be found for coffee refills. But excellent bar and game room. Overall very good experience.

Poor management

It took them an hour and four phone calls to [...] to find our reservation. Then at 3:00 AM someone opened our door with a key card and just walked in!
