WOW! What a fabulous hotel. How it isn’t 5* rated I will never know. Situated in an ideal location, within walking distance of the train station and a good 10-15 minute walk to the centre of Washington, I wouldn’t hesitate to book this hotel if visiting. We will DEFINITELY be back. A clean, modern hotel boasting very clean, spacious rooms with… Read more
WOW! What a fabulous hotel. How it isn’t 5* rated I will never know. Situated in an ideal location, within walking distance of the train station and a good 10-15 minute walk to the centre of Washington, I wouldn’t hesitate to book this hotel if visiting. We will DEFINITELY be back. A clean, modern hotel boasting very clean, spacious rooms with all of the amenities you would expect. We came here after a week in New York and wished we had cut our New York trip shorted to spend more time here. The food, staff and relaxed comfortable feel to the hotel is fabulous. We ate in the restaurant where the food was to die for and the service was first class, our waitress was incredible with fabulous attention to detail. Make sure you take a trip to the rooftop pool when visiting. You can relax on huge, 4 post beds or have sun loungers beside the pool as you soak up the sun with a cocktail (or two!). Do not think twice about looking elsewhere for a hotel in Washington. You have found it...BOOK! Read less

It was so nice to be in DC again after a three year hiatus. The sites and restaurants were on our agenda. We ended up at the Liaison on recommendation of a friend, and what a great referral it was!

It was so nice to be in DC again after a three year hiatus. The sites and restaurants were on our agenda. We ended up at the Liaison on recommendation of a friend, and what a great referral it was! LOCATION: I don’t think you can get any closer to DC’s major sites than this. It’s literally one block away from the Capitol, Supreme Court and the start of the National Mall with all of its museums, so foot mobile was easy and ride sharing affordable. CHECK IN: As soon as we pulled up to the entrance we were immediately greeted by the valet and bell staff. Doors opened, luggage handled. Registration was a breeze and the gal who assisted us was welcoming and professional. A friendly gentleman escorted us to our room and informed us of the hotel’s offerings. LOBBY: Very modern and chic with warm tones abound. The Art Bar acts as the hotel’s restaurant, lobby bar and lounge. ROOM: The room was quiet, spacious and featured all the usual amenities including modern features like strong Wi-Fi and numerous power outlets for all of our gadgets. Bedding was very comfortable, the a/c ice cold with plentiful channels on the tube for everyone. Housekeeping was good and very appreciative as they even left us a thank you note for the tip, a rarity these days. BATHROOM: The single basin and shower/tub both had good water pressure and drainage. Bath amenities were subtle-scented, and the body lotion not oily, all pluses for me. POOL: Located on the rooftop, the city hotel-sized pool is complete with a bar, tables, cabanas, and lawn games. During our stay, they had a special tribute to Apollo 11’s 50th anniversary of the moon landing, with the area decked out in space décor and themed-drinks with passed hors d’oeuvres. Bar and wait service were exceptional. CHECK OUT: Easy breezy and friendly. TIPS: Ice machines are located near the elevators. They’re a dog-friendly hotel, as how most of DC is. OVERALL: We had a great stay and can’t wait to come back. Hopefully it won’t be another three long years! Read less

We stayed for three nights as the starting point of a road trip. The hotel is clean, comfortable and has the perfect location for those who like to explore on foot.

Stayed here for 3 nights with 2 deluxe king rooms. Excellent service from Olay the reception manager. And bar and restaurant and housekeeping staff were friendly and professional. It’s a great location for the key tourist attractions and there are taxis outside. Rooms were a great size and of a reasonable spec. Clean and no issues. Pool is a real bonus although it can get crowded because everyone agrees it’s great! Bar has a great range of craft beers and the restaurant food is better than most hotels. It’s great to have Starbucks across the street and this always waiting at the door. So all great except for one thing. And it’s no fault of the hotel.... Personal security in the street outside the hotel is a concern. The level of homelessness nearby, the number and aggression of beggars is scary! We live in a city and visit many too. But across London, Milan, Barcelona and Glasgow etc etc this is the worst we have seen. DC need to address this fast! Be careful, take a cab and you’ll be fine. Read less
