Hotel Lombardy is, as noted, an older hotel. With an older hotel one should expect certain limitations; a flight or two of stairs to walk up, an elevator that only holds 4 people, oddly configured rooms. None of this should interfere with your stay. Our room was a double, very large with a small "kitchenette". Bathroom had been remolded not long ago, so it was in very good order.
Staff was pleasant and friendly. Service was great. Every night my wife would ask for ice to be delivered to our room and it was promptly delivered to us on the 8th floor.
Location is good. A short walk, which included a stop for coffee, took us to the White House. Lots of eating establishments, from high end to college flops (G.W.) are within walking distance. We enjoyed both a greasy burger/fries with a beer at Lindy's Red Lion while being entertained by the G.W. students and a more eloquent dinner at the Brasserie Beck followed by a leisurely stroll back to the Lombardy.
The metro is easily accessed, Foggy Bottom or Farragut West. Reagan/Washington National is a 15 minute ride.
One caveat. While the windows are new and double paned city noises still enter the room. It helps to keep the drapes closed. The blinds will keep the light out, but the heavy fabric drapes help knock down the noise.
For under a $100.00 a great hotel.
