This hotel is conveniently located on Capitol Hill. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The restaurant is only open for breakfast and the bar area is undergoing renovation, so the downstairs is pretty quiet. No room service is available currently. There's a makeshift bar in the lobby and you can order to-go food service from the front desk. They'll ring...

I have stayed here on a number of occasions and find it consistently excellent. A 7 minute walk from Union Station (2 minutes by taxi or Uber) makes it convenient for both rail and Metro travelers. Service at the desk, restaurant, bar and rooms is fine. I would choose it whenever I can when visiting D.C.

Great location, close to Capitol Hill and Smithsonians. But room is average: no safe boxe, no fridge, limited number of hangers, mediocre and expensive WIFI , very limited number of TV channels, no separate toilet room, carpet in the room ( not very clean). Not a great value.

Not much to recommend the Washington Court. A hotel with very occasional Wifi in 2016 sums it up. Even if you don't need Wifi, can't think of other reasons to visit except quick walk to the Capitol. Not much in the surrounding area.

Was fortuantely directed by Priceline to try this Capitol Hill area hotel. Very close to Union Station and the museum areas and within walking distance of the White House and other central activities. Reasonably priced food in hotel restaurant and attentive staff with low prices for car parking. The only thing that would make it better would be a complimentary...

I stayed here three nights for a conference. The staff is very helpful and the restuarant serivce was good. The bar service was a little slow bu no major complaints. The room was spacious but dated.

Went to DC for overnight trip to celebrate 5yr anniversary and brought our 2 german shepherds (45lb & 75lb) because it is pet friendly hotel.

We were visiting friends in DC but flew in late so needed a room for the night. Never been to this hotel before. Our room had an awesome view of the capital skyline.
