Washington Court Hotel Stay May 2012

The location of the hotel is excellent with just a 2 block walk to Union Station where we caught the Metro, and the open-top sightseeing bus tours make regular stops at Union Station as well, which was very convenient for us. The staff was very courteous, friendly & helpful. The room was comfortable and very clean. I definitely recommend this hotel and will stay there again when traveling to Washington DC.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The Washington Court Hotel is a mere 2 block walk from Union Station - VERY convenient and no need to rent a car when this close to the inexpensive public transportation system. The Circulator bus (which also makes stops at Union Station) charges a mere $1.00 for a bus ride!!

Great Hotel Near the Mall and Capitol

The hotel was wonderful and the location was great for access to the Capitol and the Mall. Only small problem was the paid WIFI was horrible especially compared to the free guest WIFI. Other than that, marvelous!

Weekend in Washington

We were warmly welcomed. While walking to the room for the first time there was a window in the hall. We saw the Capitol! We were able to get pictures of the dome in daylight and at night. The hotel was very clean. The staff was amazing. We needed to check out early because of the storm. They had our car ready when I called for the bellman. Checkout took less than 5 minutes. I highly recommend this hotel. They bent over backwards to please us.
