“Not your typical hotel room”
Reviewed 13 May 2012

I stayed in a room with a King bed on the 3rd floor. Didn't have much of a view, unless you like brick walls, but what a great room. There's a bathroom with a window that opens for some fresh air, there is a dressing area just outside the bathroom, then there's the main room with the bed and TV. Off the main room, opposite the dressing area, was a little kitchen area! There was room enough for a little table and two chairs, a fridge, sink, coffee maker. It's a great little set up, comfy beds and linens, in a quiet location close to the White House. And the price was great! The only problem I had was that the A/C blew too hard and really dried out my sinuses. I'm not a fond of fans blowing on me directly at night.

Unfriendly people working at front desk. Our company staff have visited this hotel during the past 10 years many times. Now its enough. The prize was ca 350 USD, and getting so bad service at the reception. I felt so bad.

Was completely charmed by this vintage historical boutique hotel. All the details have been preserved, including many stairs. The room was tight with a decent sized desk, but beautifully furnished with period pieces. The marble bath was large. Breakfast served in the front dining area was out of another era with a view of the street. The bar felt like a tucked away speakeasy. I would definitely stay here again.
My room overlooked the residential neighbors' manicured courtyards. I was woken by the trash collectors in the alley out back at 5 am, but this is a city. It was raining the entire trip, so did not walk to the Metro, but had no trouble getting cabs.

I can not wait to stay here again! There is no lack of character and charm in this hotel. Customer service is beyond top notch. The street view could be loud during the day but the our bedroom faced the back and didn't hear anything.

Like other have posted the furniture looks a little outdated, but it was clean and has been taken care of well. The bed and linens very clean and smelled great.

Everything was in walking distance or an $8 dollar cab ride for 2 people from Union Station and that was on a Friday night.

We will definetly stay at Hotel Lombardy again and will recommend this place to everyone who asks "Where to stay in DC"!

The Hotel Lombardy is a very nice hotel located on the edge of GWU, right on Pennsylvania Ave. It is within walking distance of Georgetown, the White House and the Mall. More importantly, it is only 2 blocks from the Foggy Bottom Metro station. It's an older hotel, but that doesn't take away from it's ambiance. Some people like their hotels to be more "modern" looking. The rooms are very nice, the service is excellent and the staff is outstanding. They are always right there to help with whatever you need...and with a smile. I did not give it 5 stars because we did not eat at their restuarant, so this review is a bit incomplete. We were in the city most of the time, and ate in different locations throughout DC. Since this hotel does a lot of it's business during the week, the weekend rates are excellent (be aware that a sizable service tax is added to your bill...it totalled $50 for our two night stay). I would highly recommend the Hotel Lombardy for it's location and staff.

Room Tip: In DC, it's all about location

This is a lovely hotel in the heart of Washington. Boutique in nature, quiet, stylish and individualistic. I changed to this hotel after staying one night in a generic and awful chain hotel nearby. A great move.

Service was quiet and efficient. The room was lovely - top tip is to ask for a room on the higher floors to get away from the noise of Pennsylvania Avenue.

The Venetian Bar is a lovely place to enjoy some post-work/pre-dinner drinks.

The only negative was the eye-wateringly expensive breakfast. It's not included in the overall price, and paying fifty dollars for some scrambled eggs, sparkling water, side of fruit and a couple of strips of bacon (five dollars by themselves!) is excessive. My advice? There are plenty of cheaper places to eat nearby including the fantastic Founding Farmers on the opposite corner. Go there instead and enjoy everything else Hotel Lombardy has to offer.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less noise

This hotel has wonderful service. From the minute I entered the hotel to check in and later check out they had welcoming staff. Staff opened the doors when entering and leaving the hotel and were very friendly.

The rooms are very clean and some have kitchenetts with a sink and fridge. They were more spacious than I expected. Maid service did a good job of cleaning the rooms every night.

After staying previously at the Mayflower and moving to this hotel I highly recommend this one. I also found the room very quiet.

Room Tip: Ask for the higest room possible not located close to the elevators with a fridge. I was on the 11t...
