I stayed at the Lombardy for one night. It is a classic boutique hotel. Check-in was seamless and I went to my room (210). There is an interesting shuttered door in front of the regular room door which, if you had lots of luggage, might pose a bit of an issue. It's an attractive feature, but had no practical value that I could see.
The room was average in size, with a small kitchenette and small closet area. The bathroom was clean and functional. Wifi was good and strong.
DIrectly out my window was an office building, no more than 20 feet away. It was a little odd walking into the room and seeing people so close. Drapes were quickly pulled. For the most part, the room was very quiet. I did notice some floor noises from above in the morning, and the door rattled a bit as well, which to some may be disconcerting since it could be interpreted as someone trying to get in.
Water pressure in the shower was good, shower head good, and toiletries as expected. A paper was delivered early (before 6:30) and I ate breakfast in the small dining area. Bagel ($6) and tea ($4). I guess that's reasonable.
I'd stay there again. It was a 10 minute walk to the Lincoln Memorial and less than five minutes to GW University. Staff was polite and efficient.More
