Washington Court Hotel

Washington DC, USA

The hotel

On Capitol Hill, Washington Court Hotel has one of DC’s most desired addresses (besides the White House, of course). You're just steps from sights like the National Mall, Newseum, US Capitol Building, and Union Station – where the Amtrak brings New Yorkers into the very heart of the capital. It may be a sizeable hotel, giving you all the benefits that come with that (like complimentary WiFi and true value for money), but it is ‘boutiquey’ in spirit and style. Bistro 525 connects you with your setting too; with its mid-Atlantic menu created from local farm produce, and its bar featuring regional brews.

The room had a very visually pleasing layout, a large television and was entirely larger than most hotel rooms, excluding any type of suite. The bathroom also seemed to be slightly larger than most in hotel rooms and was visually very nice.

There was no enforcement of mask-wearing. There were people all over the lobby and in the elevators without masks. The mattress was super hard. There was no available outlet at the desk in the room. The bathtub still had standing water from the shower I took the night before/didn't drain well. And there were hairs in the tub and on the sink.… Read more
There was no enforcement of mask-wearing. There were people all over the lobby and in the elevators without masks. The mattress was super hard. There was no available outlet at the desk in the room. The bathtub still had standing water from the shower I took the night before/didn't drain well. And there were hairs in the tub and on the sink. I had an adjoining room and the people next door sounded like they were in my room all night. The hotel doesn't carry cash so the valet got the whole $20 I took from the ATM. Merry Christmas, I guess. I was going to complain about this to staff when I checked out and they would ask me, "How was your stay?", but no one ever asked me that question. The entire stay was disappointing. Read less

My overall experience was a very good one. From service, to the impeccably clean rooms to the very spacious free areas and even the strong shower pressure—it all just made sense. I have come back and will do so again!

Covid has ruined a ton of things for everybody but this hotel seems like it would be a great time during non-covid travels. There was a bar and a patio area that served drinks. Unfortunately they were both closed due to the pandemic. The staff was very friendly and the room was very clean. The hotel itself was perfectly located close to everything. We were able to find diners and restaurants nearby. We will definitely go back. Our room had an awesome view up on the 11th floor also. Read less

Overall a wonderful stay! All of the staff was very friendly and accommodating. All of the safety precautions in place make it very easy to relax and rest. The view from the room was second to none! Would definitely stay again!!
