Normandy Hotel

Adams Morgan, Washington DC

The hotel

Its leafy residential address, among the embassies of Kalorama, may make The Normandy Hotel feel like home, but don’t be deceived – the famous sights and social buzz of D.C. are just moments away. In fact, you’re just seven minutes’ stroll from Adams Morgan’s trendy clubs, dining, and shopping, ten minutes from Dupont Circle, and two miles from the National Mall. In keeping with the ‘home from home’ feel, you’ll find elegant but cosy nooks around the hotel to mingle in or escape to, like the street-side patio, the library, and the lobby corners with treats like a fireplace, chess set, and free hot drinks, freshly baked cookies, and wine and cheese social gatherings. They’ve added homely touches to your room too, with complimentary bottled water, a Nespresso® coffee maker, and their Stock The Fridge service from nearby Trader Joe’s.

Nice boutique hotel approximately 15 minute drive to the historic monuments. Clean room, attentive staff. Early check in upon request. Only negative is parking in the area is nearly impossible. The hotel was able to squeeze our car in the valet but it is not a guarantee so don't count on it. Parking costs $40/night. If they don't have parking… Read more
Nice boutique hotel approximately 15 minute drive to the historic monuments. Clean room, attentive staff. Early check in upon request. Only negative is parking in the area is nearly impossible. The hotel was able to squeeze our car in the valet but it is not a guarantee so don't count on it. Parking costs $40/night. If they don't have parking available then they will offer you to park at the Hilton located a few blocks away (inconvenient if you ask me). Although we did not eat, breakfast is $14.99/pp for adults and $7.99/kids. Would reconsider staying here again for a future Washington DC stay. Read less

Great hotel. Nice room, well located and with a lot of charm. Breakfast is not so good but its also charged separately so you can have it anywhere else. The staff is really kind and helpful. Good price for what it offers.

Good location to the Metro - about a 10 min walk to 2 locations. Quiet neighborhood. Has a European feel in decor and service. Hallways are hot, but room air conditioning worked well. Small boutique hotel with great mattress, friendly staff, breakfast included, and reasonable room rate for D.C.

Stayed here for 3 nights, the photos looked good , believe me it didn’t look like the photos at all, the room was very small, well used but had everything you needed, the bathroom was very nice. There was a table in the lobby which was the reception area, unfortunately we had two mornings of thunderstorms and the hotel entrance was a foot deep in water, the second time the same thing happened and another guest walked straight down into it , no lessons learned from previous day, no sandbags filled and ready , we were standing on tiptoes in rainwater in the breakfast room trying to get something to eat and take to the room and a staff member came paddling in to ask for our room no lol !! It was without doubt the worst continental breakfast ever, and charged 14 dollars ! each to eat from polystyrene plates mand plastic cutlery ! It is located in a nice residential area but much to far from tourist attractions and up a very steep hill. This “hotel” has no amenities at all , no lounge bar to relax in after a busy day of sightseeing , it really is just somewhere to put your head down, would Defo not recommend. It is described as “boutique” I think more maybe like Phantom Manor lol 👻 Read less
