I am surprised to see some of the more recent reviews that were critical of hotel staff, since my experience was so different.

I am surprised to see some of the more recent reviews that were critical of hotel staff, since my experience was so different. Yes, the facilities are a bit older than some hotels and the amenities are not designed to impress, but this hotel punches above its weight class (or more accurately, its cost class). Part of that is the cleanliness of the rooms, including very clean bathrooms, towels and linens, but even more impressively, the friendliness of the staff. From the front desk staff that was able to work with us on early check-in and late check-out to the facilities and cleaning staff that we passed in the hallways, everyone was smiling, friendly, offering to help and engaging in conversation. This was my second stay at the Liaison, which I chose both times based on price and location, but my next stay will be because they are so welcoming. Read less

Couldn’t even get to the pool. Nice group, but not the right location for this event. Read less

Not a good value for what you receive... which is nothing. Tripping hazards in the hallway, no water glasses in the room. No lotion in the bathroom. I paid over $300/night and felt as if I was at a Super 8 motel.

I recommend this hotel to anyone who has business on Capitol Hill and wants to visit some of the city's sights and restaurants at a convenient walking distance. I will be returning to this hotel when next I visit DC.
