If you require some up-scale hotel, with décor that slavishly aligns with what's bland, and super-professional everything this is not the place for you. Windsor Inn is funky and cozy. It has a darling cat who lives in the old-world lobby. The décor definitely is older, and perhaps a little shabby. But it's charming. This won't be some place you...

Once you adjust your expectations accordingly, this is a great bargain for a European-style little hotel. I needed an affordable place at the last second, and this fit the bill admirably. Do not expect four-star amenities. There is a friendly lobby cat named Mimi, which for me is a *superb* amenity. There's coffee, and my small room was scrupulously clean....

Ok so much to say first the staff was good. I went for the inauguration got a deal through hotels.com. When I got in he computer system was done for almost 2 hrs couldn't check in. When I finally got the room was unimpressed. There was a moldy smell, bathroom was only part that was redone. There were cracks in...

We had forgotten about the Inauguration dates, so we had a hard time to find a place to stay. However after some arrangements we found this Hotel, with a very high price but the closest to the most important sites. Twenty minutes walking time from the National Mall, and a block away from a varied number of restaurants. The area...

This hotel is very recommendable - and it even has a friendly, hotel cat! We had a large room with a view of the street. The windows had some cold air leaks, but that could be fixed with the heater. The staff in the reception was also very nice, and the stay was a positive experience.

Checked in and was in total shock. It was dilapidated, dirty, no screen on window 2nd floor. Filthy windows couldn't see out of it. A thin board was used for a wall into the next room. I had 2 children with me and left the hotel. The environment was not for children. The photos online were misleading and fraudulent. I...

Sure, the closet was partially blocked, and the toilet was oddly placed, and the free breakfast was minimal, and a couple of holes could have used some spackle. But the location was excellent (walking distance to U Street restaurants), the price was awesome, and the innkeeper (the one with the French accent) had great tips for nearby eats (Keren, a...

Absolutely horrible! Made the mistake of booking a room here via booking.com. On the booking website it didn't state that there was no parking provided. Upon entering to talk to the gentleman that worked there I was absolutely disgusted by the pungent smell. The place smells like a dirty litter box that hasn't been cleaned in days. We immediately asked...

Had a worst experience, no internet in most of the rooms , you need to come in lobby to work on wifi . Less staff to guide you or help you . Rooms are small .Lobby is ok . Charging just because of the prime place , would NOT recommend at all .

I spent three nights at the Windsor Inn. There's a lot not to like about this place, but somehow it was better than the sum of its parts. Pros: Very good location. 16th near Swann in NW. This is close to the U Street commercial corridor and moderate/short walk to Adams Morgan and to the business areas around Dupont Circle....
