Recent guest reviews

We made a quick stop in DC and had 2 adults and 3 kids and were very comfortable in this suite.

-IMPORTANT: Do not let them put you in a room that ends with “22.” We were in room 522, and my wife and I both agreed that it was the worst view (or “view”) we have ever had. We were literally looking at a wall. Not only were we looking at a wall, but even when it was a beautiful, sunny day outside, it was still dark looking out our window. I referred to our room as our “cave.” After 3 nights, I was feeling very ready to get out of the cave. Plato himself would have wanted out after 3 nights. If this had been $100/night, I would have ignored it, but at $250/night, I have to deduct a star from my review for this. I’d also avoid rooms that end in “20” just to be safe. -Parking is really expensive and kind of confusing. The best way seems to be to park underneath in the “retail” parking lot, which is where people park when they come to shop at the grocery. It will cost you $30/night if you leave your car there and then retrieve it at the end of your stay. The other option is the hotel’s valet parking at $45/night. Either way, plan to spend some money on parking. -They have a weird elevator system from the parking garage. You have to go up an elevator to their lobby, then take a different elevator up to your room. Any time you enter the hotel, you need to either walk up the stairs and then take the elevator to your room or take the elevator from the lobby up one floor to the main lobby, and then switch to a different elevator to go to your room or the roof.

This location was great for us with restaurants close by and comfortable size room for our family of five

Staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming. If I go back to DC I will definitely look into staying at the Cambria

We stayed 4 nights, convenient, clean, boutique hotel. Would stay here again. Rooftop patio w gas firepit & great views. O St Mkt converted to Giant supermarket next door. Highly recommended.

We were promised close proximity to White house...one quest is 94! So disappointed, no where near and subway 4 blocks away

Within walking distance to metro. Restaurants and market close by.

My brother and I took our 10 year olds to DC for 4 days to learn about our great country! The Cambria was a great hotel to relax in after a day of sightseeing! The only thing negative to comment on is that a lot of the hotel staff at the front desk don't really know a lot about the city as far as distance to locations or restaurant suggestions?? I found this very interesting for such a nice hotel! The other thing I didn't care for too much was that you had to ask for your towels and the sheets are changed every three days unless u ask for it sooner!

Sparkling new hotel close to the Convention Center. Modern but comfortable, spacious rooms for a city hotel. Very quiet neighborhood to boot. Close enough to the Metro to make it usable regardless of where you need to be in DC.

Staff was great. Bar staff was not the most pleasant. It was an ok location for my stay.

The staff was always friendly, loved that grocery store was on the same block so we could have picnic when we finally got back to our room after very long day walking. The pool room was warm but the pool could have been warmer. Bed was very comfortable and we slept well. Hallways were quiet and no street noise.

No one came over to take out order for breakfast waited 15 min then left. Only blemish on an otherwise very enjoyable stay.

Room wasn't cleaned well other than that very nice. Only stayed for a few hours

I was in town for the Bettye LaVette concert and just to get away from regular life. I arrived before my room was ready, so the staff put my bag behind the desk and referred me to a wonderful sandwich shop down the street for lunch. After a great lunch and sunshine stroll, I returned to a suite that was impeccably and artfully appointed. The decor and ambience of the entire hotel said modern chic. The staff was friendly at all times and helped me find other great eateries and some consignment stores. The hotel is located close enough to tourist attractions that you can take a cab to where you want to go, but it's tucked away in a residential area that reminded me of the arts district of my hometown. I walked for hours each day, just exploring and enjoying the sunshine, and I felt completely safe. There's even a huge grocery store on the next block if you need to grab a few items and a Starbucks next door. The on site restaurant/bar was overpriced compared to the eateries I visited and had slow service. I left a note for the manager about my less than satisfactory experience, and she sent a fruit, cheese, and cracker tray with a card for a free appetizer and an apology to my suite. That's how professionals who care about their customers respond. This was one of the best vacations I've had in awhile.

Only problem was weak water pressure in shower, but the suite was lovely and was in a great location, walking distance to Metro and Convention Center

Stayed here for a conference. Was pretty close to the conference center, but on the opposite side of the convention center as many of the fancier hotels. Nice people, clean rooms, OK internet, overall worked well.

The hotel was located about 4 blocks from a metro, which was great. There were a couple of parking options, all expensive, but it is DC. Never felt unsafe, but it was always crowded. I would stay on the main streets. Area looks like it is turning around. Rooftop lounge nice, pool nice. Staff helpful. There were a couple of issues----forgetting to restock toilet paper, taking all day to clean room, broken elevator, but all were fixed quickly and courteously. I would stay there again.

We truly enjoyed our stay at Cambria Suites. The amenities were awesome, and this hotel was very clean. We enjoyed the rooftop and the hotel restaurant and lounge. The breakfast buffet was very delicious and convenient. I highly recommend this hotel!!

The valet service was lacking from the beginning to the end,arrival had to actually ask the person to park the rental,leaving brought the wrong car.The rooms heater blowing cold air.Card keys worked without problems last day only.Asked for help getting a rental wheelchair ,when leaving for the day told some apologies of forgetting to find my request she did smile.$15.95 buffet handled by one senior citizen,selection spartan,taste bland.Bad experience.

View from the roof! View from our room (522).  :(
