We took our preteen granddaughters with us when my husband had D.C. business. The Court was convenient and friendly, with adjoining rooms for us and a warm answer to our every query. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

This hotel is in a great location if you are traveling to go to the Capitol. The rooms are nice and spacious and the staff are friendly. However their guide to the hotel in the rooms lists a store and business center neither of which exists and that made it hard to manage some of the things I needed. The...

Great location if you are visiting anything on Capital Hill or the eastern end of the National Mall. Only 4-5 blocks from Union Station including the Union Station Metro (subway). About the 6-8 blocks to the U.S. Capital, Supreme Court and the Library of Congress. Rooms were fairly comfortable but could use better lighting. Catering was good for our group...

The hotel is in the process of remodeling and the appearance is very nice. I think they need to do some thing with there room doors. People are used to there being some type of restraint so they don't slam. These don't and when your neighbor leaves its noisy. The bathrooms in the hotel are wonderful and well lite. Need...

Real character shows itself in difficult situations and the Washington Court Hotel excelled. When the water was turned off (in the middle of my shower), they were so quick to react, providing an alternative room immediately. The hotel is very comfortable with a great location, only minutes walk from Union Station and approx. 15 minutes to the city center.

The hotel appears to be undergoing room renovation. The room I stayed in was nice but didn't seem to be completely furnished - it didn't have a desk or chair to work from. Since this was a working meeting, it was...inconvenient. When I call ed the front desk after arriving in my room to ask, they said that none of...

The location is right in the center of everything if you need to be on the hill. Their staff is very friendly and professional and since it is a conference hotel there is a nice lobby and a couple of food options. Everything in the rooms is brand new. There are a few small things that I think make this...

We have stayed at this location for several years on our summer visits to DC. This past summer, I dropped off a sports coat at the front desk for dry cleaning. I was so pleasantly surprised to find that not only was my sports coat clean and nicely pressed but someone had taken it upon themselves to replace a lost...

Staff were friendly, hotel was clean and well kept, food was good, and proximity to Union Station and Capitol a plus. Particularly noisy, as the room faced the street and the fire station was a half block away. DC always has things going on that require fire response. Light between beds did not work and maintenance said it would have...
