“Very nice boutique hotel in good location at a Great Price”
Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

Have now stayed here a fe w times and love it... Small but well appointed and a real old world feel ... And very well priced... Good location.... And the bar/ restaurant is a hidden gem on DC... Very Mad Men-esque. Polite front desk staff.

We chose this hotel primarily due to its proximity to the apartment complex at which our daughter was staying, but it would have been a great choice for any reason. The hotel is old (it is one of the Historic Hotels of America) and our room was small, but everything was spotless and the staff was excellent. The price was very reasonable for a weekend stay in a big city. DC is small enough that you can walk just about anywhere (we took in the Newseum, the Holocaust Museum, and the US Navy Memorial Plaza while we were there) and there are plenty of restaurants and bars close by. We didn't eat at the hotel restaurant, but it looked very good. We did, however, hit their Blue Bar and it was great. On Saturday night they had a jazz group - The Sheila Davis Trio - and it made for a wonderful evening. I'm sure this place flies under the radar because it isn't part of a big chain, but it is a great place to stay in DC if you are there.

Thank you for your comments about your recent stay. I am pleased to learn from your review that you enjoyed our convenient location. It provides our guests a seamless way to explore the Washington, DC area and is within walking distance of many area attractions as well as two Metro stations. We continue to offer great live music from local Jazz artists in the Blue Bar on Saturday evenings and I am so happy that it enhanced your stay.
I hope we will see you again soon.

Looked to stay within walking distance of Fords Theatre and tried the Embassy Suites, but it was full. Orbitz suggested this hotel. We chose it. It was wonderful. Parking was reasonable for DC. Rooms small, which is typical of an older hotel.

The hotel was spotless. The public restrooms were spotless.

The sitting area plays nice jazz and is light and airy. Bar area very nice. Breakfast, a little pricey, but typical for DC.

We'd go back

Room Tip: Near Chinatown, Fords Theatre, and walking distance to metro and The Phillips Collection. Make re...

I stayed here for a long weekend with my mom this past November and had a great stay. The hotel was so neat since it is historic! The room was comfortable and plenty of room for two people. My mom was attending a conference at the conference center which was just a few block up the street, a very short walk. The metro was a little further away which was ok but chilly in the morning! From the metro it was easy to get to all the sights. There is a restaurant in the hotel which was good for breakfast and dinner if you feel like staying in. There was construction going on across the street while we were there and sirens during the night. I got ear plugs from the front desk which helped eliminate the noise.

I am so happy to hear we were a pleasant backdrop for your Mother Daughter getaway. Our Tavern Restaurant staff really does a great job. They will be pleased to hear you enjoyed their products and service.
Happily the construction project accross the street is completed so you can enjoy restful nights on your return trip.

The Henley Park offers a lovely historic hotel, comfortable rooms, delicious food (especially the salmon), and a fine staff. We enjoyed having the Henley Park as our base for a five day visit to DC. Joanne, at the front desk, was always so helpful and accommodating. The restaurant staff, Sieble, Manuel, and May were perfect hosts and servers and the doormen were cheerful each day. A sudden and unexpected trip to the ER was made much less distressful due to the kind attentiveness of all the staff. They were considerate in so many ways. We highly recommend the Henley Park as a convenient and delightful place to stay in DC.

The hotel is comfortable, clean and well located. However if you need to take a taxi, call one by yourself and don't ask the front desk. The taxi they use charge lot more than regular taxi ($80 for the airport vs $50-60 for a regular taxi).

I am so sorry that your otherwise pleasant stay was marred by the overcharge on the part of the Town Car service. We require that the fees for transport for any car service be agreed upon with you prior to leaving the hotel. Usually our Bellman will recommend this service (they are not employees of the hotel but are required to represent our product appropriately) in lieu of taxis only if the guest requires the use of a credit card for payment or if you specify a preference for a limousine. Not all taxis in DC accept credit cards although that is in the process of changing.
I will be sure to follow up with my staff regarding proper procedures when recommending transportation services and their costs to our guests. Drivers who are shown to overcharge or who do not follow these guidelines will be removed from our list of recommended vendors.

Sincerely,

Maggie Edwards

The hotel is comfortable and historic without being stuffy. The restaurant food is not extraordinary, but the prices are decent for DC. However, there were some issues with service at the front desk all three times I interacted with the clerks. All three were slow to acknowledge, and not especially helpful with questions. I expected more care.

You should most definitely have expected more care and prompt responses whenever you interacted with any hotel staff member. Our hotel size, style and mission statement clearly define our specialty as "exceptional customer service". That you felt otherwise is extremely disappointing. Be assured that I will review your feedback with the entire team and the Front Desk staff in particular.
If I can assist in any way now or on any future stay please feel free to contact me at the hotel.

Warm regards,
