“Good hotel,good location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2013

My partner, our baby and I stayed in this hotel for a weekend in early December 2013. I have to saw I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel given the highly competitive room rate. The staff were excellent and the rooms a good size - with nice touches like a fully functioning kitchen, complete with fresh coffee beans and a grinder! I did not eat at the hotel and therefore cannot comment on the food. The hotel is ideally located for touring Downtown, the Mall, Georgetown and elsewhere via the nearby Metro stop. The only issue was the $40 (+tax) carpark charge. I would advise anyone considering this hotel and requiring parking to shop around for cheaper rates!

Room Tip: Traffic noise might be an issue in lower floor rooms. There is also a busy hospital emergency room c...

Dear Ross F,
Thank you for posting a review of your recent stay with us! We're so happy that your partner, your baby and yourself enjoyed your stay with us! You're very right, our location is very ideal and centrally located!
We're sorry that the parking charge was a bit of a surprise--parking in DC is certainly expensive and we do our best to keep our prices as low as possible!

We hope that the next time your travels bring you to DC that we will welcome you back!
Best,
The One Washington Circle Hotel team

Spacious rooms with full kitchen and balcony. Liked the toiletries dispenser in the shower - other hotels can learn from this. A shower curtain that actually works! Great staff with great attitude thank you Elliot and Narra. Guest self service laundry facilities. Great location in great neighbourhood. Was very comfortable and appreciated the room upgrade. This was our 5th hotel in 2 weeks as we tour the east coast with 2 children and so far the best.

This was my second two week stay at the One Washington Circle Hotel. I have to agree with other comments the hotel staff are warm and welcoming, going the extra mile for their guests. When one is away from home for extended periods of time that friendly warm welcome-ness helps ease the distance away from family and friends. The decor is is surprising - it is a designer hotel not just another "canned hotel look". It is not only the visible staff that make this hotel a destination but the management behind the scenes who insist on excellence. I plan to stay at this hotel each time I come to D.C. on business. I have stayed at other hotels in D.C. but this one captured my heart! Home away from home makes a nice difference at the end of often stressful business days.

I've had a blessed stay in this hotel, it was quiet it was clean and the bed was very comfortable.
The White House Washington monument and Lincoln memorial are not far away you can walk to this places in about 15 minutes you are there, the metro is 3 minutes from the hotel. What else do you need ;-)
I will always come back to this place it was an enjoyable stay.

Staff at the One Washington Circle Hotel made my stay in DC great. It was easy to make reservation. The room look exactly as promised. The location of the hotel can not be better. It is easily reached by Metro and has many amenities close by. Hotel also provides great directions to local food stores such as Whole Foods and Trades Joe.

Great hotel at a cheaper price than most with massive rooms in a great location. Before I go into my review, one very important point to note - DO NOT ASK FOR A TAXI from them, IT IS A RIPOFF. Much better off using Uber (plenty of availability, and UberX is even cheaper than a regular cab). E.g. I asked for a cab to convention centre - got charged $60 for a black SUV. Catching the same type of thing back ended up costing $45, and a regular taxi/UberX only cost $30.

Apart from this little scam (which seems to be common at a lot of DC hotels), the hotel itself is great. The rooms are massive, albeit slightly dated but very clean and have a kitchenette. The location is fairly convenient, and about a $5-$10 cab ride from anywhere you'd want to be. Lots of great restaurants within walking distance as well.

Highly recommended, just wish they would drop the taxi scam...
