Washington Court Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Everything we expected. Staff was professional and friendly.

Convenient to public transportation and museums they updated our room because we had to wait to check in

The bathroom was not ventilated and the paint was peeling on the bathroom ceiling. Additionally, a "facility fee" was charged which was not included in the reservation price and was not disclosed prior to or at check in.

Location, style, clean design, great shower, comfortable beds

Good location, staff is very nice , not the cleanest but for the price point everything was fine

Awesome property. It's convenient to the mall. The only downside is the gym is quite small

Location to Capital and Smithsonian museaumssssss.

I did not enjoy my weekend stay here. The only positives are the hotel location and room size. The walls are thin, so you will hear everything that your neighbors say and every corridor door slam. The hotel staff is indifferent or incompetent. Staff at check-in was not welcoming and seemed preoccupied despite me being the only guest at the desk. 2 things annoyed me. First, I expressly told the rep at check-in that I wanted to pay the daily $23 resort fee in cash upon check-out. His response was: "no problem." Instead, they billed my credit card and slipped an invoice under the door. Second, Sunday was the only day that I could sleep in that week. Housekeeping barged into the room at 9:30 on Sunday morning. 9:30 a.m. on a Sunday when check out is at noon. So much for sleeping in. There are two other hotels on the same block. Check those and you may feel more like a guest than a source of revenue.

Nice spacious rooms. Great location. Valet is exepensive. You need to include a microwave in all rooms

Nice hotel, friendly and helpful staff. convenient to the capitol and other places of interest.

Our party came in from a train to Union Station, which is a short, convenient walk to the hotel. The room/restroom is spacious, and the staff is friendly.

I really love the rooms to include the use of technology. WC will be my first choice always.

Nice hotel. Clean and modern furniture and setup. As is typical, there are a lot of hidden fees, not the most thrilled about that.

The hotel was awesome and the staff were lovely. Would definitely stay here again if I ever come back to DC.

Great location, helpful and friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms. Not anything fancy but great value for the price! Loved the bathroom and the big tv.

Very nice hotel, just a short walk from the National Mall, Capitol building and White House. Room was huge, clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again.

Clifton at check-in was friendly and fun to talk to. Our door to the room was a bit tricky to get into but staff helped us in and we didn’t have any problems after that. There were hairs left in the shower from the previous occupant so the shower was not thoroughly cleaned but the room was lovely and we enjoyed our stay very much.
