First, we booked this hotel through Bookit.com at the end of September for an October trip...we got a great deal, but, it was non refundable. As it turned out, we had booked during the government shut down. I called the hotel and Bookit, and the hotel agreed to refund our non refundable booking so we could go at a later...

I have stayed multiple times in the past few months at the Washington Court Hotel while in DC. I was quite disappointed this last time only with the cleanliness of our room(or lack, thereof). I did complain and was given a new room that was much cleaner, but perhaps there should be a "2nd check" before you give guests their...

I recently stayed here for four nights on a business trip. I couldn't have been more pleased. The hotel looked like it had been recently renovated. Everything was fresh and clean. My room was large by most standards and upscale, having a beautiful bed and headboard, nice furniture and a comfortable feel. The bed was really comfortable, i slept like...

We recently visited DC with 2 adults and 3 kids. Our stay at the Washington Court Hotel was excellent. The room looked like it was just renovated and was large and very comfortable - with all the amenities we could need. Loved the bathrooms with the separate shower and bathtub. The restaurant was very good and the kids really enjoyed...

The hotel is good, but they could work on a few things to make it better. For starters, when I entered my room, the toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, etc.) were used and only half full. Next, the fitness center could be updated and expanded--even with only three or four people in the fitness center, it was super crowded. Otherwise, the rooms...

I liked this hotel. It was nice and clean, not a ton of frills, and the price was great! I used to live in DC and I booked the hotel last minute, so I was glad to get a good price. I had taken the train into town, and for a trip like mine, the location was perfect. If you...

I found this hotel on the internet and booked it through a company I had not used before. Feeling insecure I emailed the hotel directly. I was fortunate that Adam from the hotel emailed me back and a few emails about Washington sites followed. As Washington was only a few nights stay before going to Chicago I had not thought...

I stayed here for one night on business. The hotel is pretty swanky, staff is friendly and helpful, rooms are well appointed, and the beds are comfortable. I did not try the restaurant in the lobby. It's located close to Capitol Hill, which likely accounts for the high prices. I would stay here again for business but it's expensive.

This is a really good hotel, but as above it really does need to sort out its wi-fi to compete going forward. The lobby and bar areas are excellent, the bar staff are very good and generally its a very welcoming area. Our room was spacious and clean, with a big, impressive bathroom. This was the last leg of a...
