I'd love to post a nice review, however due to the pandemic, I was unable to even GET to Liason for my family's Spring Break vacation. After reaching out to the staff regarding a refund as this cancellation was not on my own accord, they refused. Charged me the full amount. Under normal circumstances, I fully understand the policy. These, however are not normal circumstances. I was forced to cancel and believe that the right thing for this institution to do, is give a refund. Although our trip is postponed, I can assure you I will stay anywhere BUT Liason due to the pure unwillingness to support a family with a situation that was beyond their control, beyond anyone's control!

I checked in on Sunday and stayed all week. I noticed our sheets on the bed had not been changed. When I inquired about it, I was told the hotel policy was not to change them until we checked out and the room was cleaned for the next guess. Gross. No option to have the sheets changed at all. Had to get a new key for our room 7 times. They even… Read more

Check other hotels first. Read less

Nice hotel located in walking distance from union station and Capitol Hill. Most of the tour buses are located at union station so you can walk there and select the type tour you desire. The rooms at the Liaison are small but adequate. No cups in the room except for 2 coffee cups. We enjoyed our stay.

Rooms are poorly maintained for price, Black soot came out of iron and ruined shirt and staff could care less. Took forever to even get a replacement. Chair tattered and poor condition. Mirrors scratched and dark.

This hotel is a little subpar for its 4 star rating and price. It's not bad - just not as great as expected. There are issues with the room that drop my rating: small rips in bed sheets, weird stains on carpet, weird stains on the wall AC grille, and no water glasses in the room. We were also frustrated that we called valet to have your car… Read more
This hotel is a little subpar for its 4 star rating and price. It's not bad - just not as great as expected. There are issues with the room that drop my rating: small rips in bed sheets, weird stains on carpet, weird stains on the wall AC grille, and no water glasses in the room. We were also frustrated that we called valet to have your car brought up (the hotel has valet parking) and, after 20+ minutes, our car had not arrived. These are not big issues - but there are lots of nice hotels in DC that are cheaper or similarly priced. Overall, a little disappointed that the Liason's quality did not hit the mark. Read less
