“Great location”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Stayed here for 2 nights in June 2014. Location is good - not far to walk to major sights. i went running both mornings down by the White House/Lincoln Memorial and it was easy to get there from the hotel. One downside is that the hotel overlooks a small park lined with benches where a lot of homeless people sleep. I went running alone at 6am and didn't feel completely safe.

the rooms were as you'd expect from a crowne plaza - nice, spacious and comfortable. my room had some very loud aircon though which i just had to get used to.

i arrived late at night and wanted to facetime people at home. the wifi in my room didn't work despite an engineer coming to try to fix it. apparently that room 'doesn't get a very good signal' so it was a case of tough luck. the next morning however the front desk told me another wifi account to log into and the problem was solved. its a shame they didn't just tell me that in the first place.

i had one meal in the hotel bar whilst i watched some world cup football. the bar had a nice atmosphere, staff were friendly and the food was good.

overall i would probably stay here again. the central location and reasonable price were great.

My friend and I stayed in Washington's plush Hamilton Crowne Plaza Hotel during our recent trip to Washington. The room was spacious, with a luxury bathroom and two giant double beds. If I had one gripe then it would be that WIFI was not free in the bedrooms but to be fair, this is a very small gripe and free WIFI is offered in many nearby cafés and restaurants.
The hotel's location is very central for exploring Washington's MANY free sights. Washington is like a walking history book - there's loads to see and do there! The best part is that the majority of the city's museums are free so that's a big plus! Before I digress too much (since I'm reviewing the hotel rather than the city), it's located just across the road from McPherson Square Subway Station and this was very handy for us when we were travelling from the Airport as we didn't have to lug our luggage too far when we arrived at the Subway Station.
It was expensive to dine at the hotel's restaurant so we opted to eat in other nearby eateries. In Washington, you're spoiled for choice when it comes to eating options and if you're any bit budget-conscious then it is very possible to eat on a budget there.
I think that Tony Browne at the Concierge deserves a special mention as he was extremely helpful; providing us with maps, tour-bus tickets, and other information about the city.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to friends or family.

Close to everything walking distance.
Would stay again.

Customer service can ruin, an otherwise outstanding hotel. It costs seven times more to get a new customer than retain an existing. As an IHG Platinum for the last 2 years, I decided to take my wife to DC for a short vacation using Rewards Points. Arrived late in evening and assigned Room 1444, which in the course of evening we learned wraps around the elevator bank sounding like you're in the machinery room. Guest services made a follow up call the next day to see how my experience was, and I shared the noise issue, assuming the very nice person was documenting my concern. I expected at lease an apology note from the Manager, but nothing! My business doesn't require me to use IHG when I travel, I HAD BEEN MAKING A CHOICE.

Room Tip: Do not except a room that ends in "44", these room wraps around the entire bank of elevato...

An excellent choice! I enjoyed this hotel pretty much. The hotel does not seem big, but this even adds some charm. My room (though not very large) was very cute and cozy, which indeed allow me feeling at home.

There is a number of cool restaurants and bars around (one should definitely visit Joe's), the White House is a couple of blocks down, which makes the hotel perfectly situated.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor which face the K street are a bit noisy.

This hotel is surprisingly lovely! Since it is a Crowne Plaza now, I was expecting a typical chain hotel. But instead we found a beautifully decorated older hotel with moderate sized rooms and spiffy bathrooms. And in a great location for sightseeing. We were able to walk to the war memorials, the White House, and the mall from the hotel as well as numerous restaurants.

I took the blue train from the airport to McPhearson Square, for my surprise the hotel was only one block away. My room on the 10th floor was very nice and modern, with a view of the Washington Monument. Bed super confortable, the shower and the bathroom ammenities over the top. White House and all attractions only a few blocks away....I want to go back!!!
