Club Quarters Hotel in Washington, D.C.
Ranked #96 of 142 Hotels in Washington DC
Reviewed 8 April 2014

Yes, the rooms are small. They are also efficiently designed and makes adjusting the room temperature super fast. I like to heat the room when showering and then cool things back down afterwords so that is nice.

The shower is small but the shower head adjusts up/down and is removable. I'm tall so it's rare to have a showerhead that is above my head. These go practically to the ceiling if you want.

There is a small cabinet for clothes in the closet. They didn't have that the last time I visited so that was a nice addition.

You have to get your own ironing board/iron from a shared closet if you need it. I'm lazy and box my clothes so I don't really care.

I LOVE the self-service water bottling station.DC water is horrible and having a free and simple way to get some decent water is a great service.

The rooms have a K-cup brewing machine and Caribou coffee cups. This is the best hotel coffee combination I've had.

The only ice machine is in the lower level, BUT the ice buckets are located there as well. When you think about it, that is ideal as you don't have to make a round trip from your room to grab a bucket when getting to the hotel.

I'm not much of a tourist, but it's a fantastic location to get out and about. Good public transportation and close walking distance from many interesting spots.

When they tell you you need your key to operate the elevator, take note. You don't want to be the dork standing there pushing the button 10 times before you give up and hear them tell you again when you go to complain.

I read some complaints about noise issues. I found this to be one of the quietest places I've stayed downtown. I was in a back room (just a view of some kind of odd brick atrium) but I heard almost no street or internal noise. I'm used to hearing lots of sirens and doors slamming at most downtown hotels. The staff can probably recommend quieter rooms if that's important to you.

A small but item-of-note that I liked was that the TVs act like "real TVs". Most hotels have an annoying lag when changing channels and always start back up on the "hotel channel". These TVs flip through channels quickly and start back up on the last channel you were watching. It's a small thing but I like it...

Room Tip: Non-street facing rooms are probably quieter but have no view.

You just can't beat this location for the price. The Metro Station is on the corner just around from the front door. The rooms are very small and the bathroom even smaller but it's fine for a business trip; who spends time in the room anyway. I found the staff to be very helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: Street noise (sirens) can be a problem due to the proximaty to the White House so the higher floors...

Will stay here again next time. Rooms are nice and clean and our had a nice view of the park across the street. There is bottled water available in the hallways and a business center with free computer use and printing. The location is excellent walking distance to a lot of attractions. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Also easily accessible by subway.

Location: right by White House, access to 3 subway lines within 2 blocks. Cab rides to mall museums are around $5.
Rooms: cozy, but clean... with refrigerator and microwave if you request one. One queen or 2 twin beds only, but very comfortable beds. Excellent, huge TVs. Good reading lights by the beds and a computer desk with lots of outlets.
Parking: $20 per night at a garage 3 blocks from hotel. (Hotel validates your parking) Since DC now has parking meters along Constitution/Independance Ave. where you can only stay 2 hours at a time, we left the car in the garage and took the subway to museums.
Guest services: Very kind staff. A guest "living room" with computers/printers, newspapers, meeting tables, snacks, coffee & tea, etc. added to the experience.
Filtered Water: On each floor is a station with chilled filtered water and bottles to fill to take water on your ramblings. Much appreciated.
Food: There are several highly rated restaurants within walking distance. The pub food during happy hour was very good. The $14.95 breakfast "buffet" was very poor quality and less variety than you get for free at a Hampton Inn.
WARNING: There is a book in the room of restaurants that will deliver and let you put the charges on your bill. The system worked fine, but RASOI in their book is not the same as the highly rated RASIKI listed on tripadvisor. RASOI's food was adequate, but somewhat dry and very spicy. We would not order from them again.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the park have a better view, but sirens are less noticeable in the rear.

If it is location and price ypu are after this is it. literally minutes from the white house. Yes it is not your typical hotel (smallish rooms, not overly friendly staff) but it doesn't claim to offer that.

Coffee machine best I've used in a hotel.

Would highly recommend.

Stayed a Friday and Saturday night here in March. Must say for the location room decor and price the place is 1st class. The coffee machine and walk in shower were a lovely treat.

The reasons I'm not given it 5 stars are;

Room sizes (not a problem for me as location far outweighed this negative but might be for some people and must be noted.

Unfriendliness of staff, while I understand the concept of club quarter is not to be like a regular hotel and rather a quieter more private accommodation option. but for me the staff were still a little cold and curt.

Would I book if I was staying in Washington again most definitely.

I had to be in town for a big meeting at one of the Federal agencies. Club Quarters was one of the suggested hotels. It was a great choice. After landing at Reagan, I just hopped on the Metro and went straight to the Farragut West stop without transferring. The hotel is literally right on top of the Metro stop.

The hotel was centrally located to my meeting site. There are plenty of fast-food and fast-casual restaurants nearby. I had a standard room which was a bit smaller than a normal "hotel" room, but more than adequate for 1 - 2 guests. My room faced the street, so it was a bit noisy at times. (But truthfully, how often do you have a Presidential motorcade drive by?)

Finally, I want to single out Carl and Tseday at the front desk for special mention/thanks. When I unpacked, I discovered that I had left my dress pants at home. (And my big meeting was the next morning.) They directed me to a nearby men's store and I had a replacement pair of trousers, sparing me the embarrassment of showing up at the big meeting in my blue jeans.

Room Tip: Avoid the front of the hotel if you're a light sleeper.
