My husband and I have been to DC on short trips for years, usually staying at one of the large chains. Because we were only passing through for one night this time, and we wanted to see a show at the Kennedy Center, we decided to try the Hotel Lombardy. We're glad we did. A tip on this website steered us to a great rate through a historic preservation website. The hotel is cozy, comfortable and in a great location. Staff is friendly and helpful.
Our room felt surprisingly large, with a side nook for an eating area with sink, microwave, and well stocked minirefrig., and another side nook for a dressing area, with closets on one side and the bathroom on the other - a good layout. {Now I'm pretty sure this was a ROOM, not a suite.}
The bathroom is fine, but quite small - maybe not so good for 4 to a room, or for several children. We had a little trouble with the free internet access at first (ethernet cable, not wireless), but after a phone call to the help line, it worked well.
The small cafe is attractive. The lunch menu looked good, but we arrived after hours. We enjoyed our breakfast there. On our Sat. night visit, the small bar was cozy and full (but not crowded) of pleasant, well-behaved folks. A group of two women would not feel uncomfortable, I think.
The Foggy Bottom metro is fairly close, and the Kennedy Center operates a shuttle bus from that metro stop to the Center. Because of heavy rain that evening, we decided not to try it and opted for a cab instead. We were there in 5 minutes, paying little more than we would have for parking at the Center, and all the related headaches of driving in and out. Getting a cab back was no problem.
Parking may be an issue for some folks. Since we were there only one night and got a great room rate, it was not an issue for us. If you have a car, valet parking is about your only option at about $36 a night. There may be some cheaper lots nearby (I don't know), but street parking is limited to about 2 hrs in the unlikely event you can find a spot. However, there is ample area to stop, check in, and unload directly in front of the hotel.
We look forward to a return visit.

We spent two nights here and were very happy with our choice of accommodation.

Rooms were clean with modern amenities. Staff service was exceptional.

Breakfast was great also with very good service from the staff.

Good dining choices nearby.

The Hotel Lombardy is in a great location for a business trip to Washington--Eye Street near 20th. It is just two blocks from the Farragut West Metro station, so it is very convenient to National Airport via the blue line. The hotel is an older property, very well maintained, with lots of character. I have stayed several times, and like the fact that the rooms vary in layout and furnishings. All are well appointed with a desk and free internet. Room service is excellent-- selections from the Hotel's outstanding restaurant. There are lots of other restaurant choices available nearby.

I stayed here for a week and found it clean, with excellent service. I'm not sure why it's only a 3* hotel as I've stayed in many much worse 4* hotels. It's got a great location (10 minute stroll to the White House) and five from the Metro. I'll certainly go back when I'm next in DC. It has an old-style boutique feeling, but all of the amenities were modern and the bathroom was brand new. My only gripe was the external noise of trash being emptied at adjoining offices at 4AM, but there's not much the hotel can do about that.

Great staff clean hotel. Bathrooms could use an update. Close to GWU campus. The wireless internet was not working, they did remedy this 3 times.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front are older and a bit noisy, baths are old and need an update!

This hotel is charming without being too uptight or expensive. I loved my small room and original bathroom features. The staff was totally gracious. The brass was gleaming. I just hope the price doesnt get to high.

Room Tip: double more expensive but with kitchenettes
