Reviewed 8 July 2012 via mobile

We loved everything about the Lombardy, from the clean and quiet to the wonderful bedding, complimentary shoe shining at night, everyone was very plesent and helpful, smiling in the summertime heat, and explained DC on street parking. Make sure to have a cheap breakfast at the Penn Grill around the corner..

My wife and I stayed here for the first time for the nights of the 3rd and 4th of July. Our room was on the 10th floor. We were amused by the funky black shutter doors - sort of giving the place a southern feel. In reading many of the previous reviews, it looks like they have quite a variety of rooms. We had a king bed room, but there was no refrigerator or kitchenette. Fortunately, we had a cooler with us to keep some beverages and snacks cold. BUT, we had to call the front desk to have ice delivered to the room - there is no ice machine available for guests! Also, there was no ice bucket, so I don't know where you'd keep the ice if you didn't bring a cooler. The bathroom was very small, and only had a narrow shelf above the sink and toilet on which to keep our stuff. There were a few rough edges in the preparation of the room; when we checked in, there was only one bath towel! Fortunately, there was a maid right outside, and she gave us a couple more. Also, while there was an iron in the closet, we had to request an ironing board. Despite these shortcomings, the staff were all very friendly and helpful. There is evening turndown service where they close the curtains, turn on a light and drop off a couple of bottles of water. Because we had showered after returning from a hot day at Nationals Stadium, we even had our towels replaced when the maid visited the room! The air conditioner was fairly quiet, and there was a ceiling fan over the bed to help move the cool air around. The bed was very comfortable, and there was an abundance of pillows. The location is great - our walk to the Mall for fireworks only took about 15 minutes. The DC Circulator buses stop very near by, and are only $1.00 with free tranfers within a two-hour period. The front desk gave us a map of the routes.

My girlfriend and I took the trip down to Washington DC in the beginning of July to see the sights and sounds. From the minute we pulled up to the hotel, the staff was willing and ready to ensure our check in process was simple and quick. The Valet Parking was incredibly convenient seeing as how it is otherwise impossible to find a spot in DC and the front desk staff was very friendly. We received our keys instantly and a map to the area. The elevator is incredibly tiny, but I guess that adds to the charm of the place. We stayed on the 11th floor and our room was incredible. It was very clean and spacious especially for the price that we had paid. The Lombardy had hands down the most comfortable bed and pillows I have ever slept in. The Air Conditioner was another huge plus. It was 100 degrees when we stayed so it was nice to be able to come back to a nice clean, cool room. As far as location is concerned, it is in the perfect spot as well. Minutes away from the White House and the mall it is a very easy walk to and from the nations capitol buildings. If you stay here, make sure you book a reservation with Founding Farmers across the street for some great food as well. All in all, I was very satisfied with the Lombardy and I will stay here again should I return to DC.

If you love the city and old buildings with lots of character, this is your place in DC. The hotel has updated interiors, so it is very nice and you cannot beat the location. There was a small refrigerator in the room and an extra sink. Search the web for a good price. Lots of great restaurants within a few blocks. Founding Farmers for breakfast is terrific - if you don't make a reservation (like us) for dinner, GOOD LUCK - it is very popular. Kinkeads is wonderful, just bring money. They also had a pretty good gym.

This was my first visit to Washington DC related to a Conference. I happened to be in Hotel Lombardy for a release of a report by one of the Network Organization. I loved the location and the facilities there.

Visiting our Nation's Capitol can be very expensive, especially if you plan to stay for more than a few nights. I spent five nights at the end of June 2012 and I picked this hotel because with my AARP rate my average nightly rate was $152! That's a real bargain for DC.

Hotel Lombardy is located near George Washington University and is quite close to the Foggy Bottom Metro station. I booked a standard, king room. It is an older, nicely maintained hotel with nice decor, good bed linens and towels, an onsite restaurant and lounge, and a small gym. The air-conditioning in my room was excellent and very quiet (such an important aspect of summer travel). There is free wifi in each room, a small refrigerator, coffee service, free bottled water and the Washington Post newspaper is delivered each day at no charge. The staff was professional and helpful.

There was no view to speak of from my room (#712) but because this room was located at the rear of the building it was very quiet. As a matter of fact, I did not realize the city had experienced a huge wind storm late one evening because I slept through the entire storm in my quiet back-of-the-building room! Also, this room had a wonderful and generous bathroom with nice furnishings. The only item lacking was a full length mirror.

The neighborhood is great with numerous places to eat, close to a brand new Whole Foods grocery store, a Starbucks, a CVC pharmacy, the 32 bus or the Metro rail.

Stayed for 2 nights with family visiting DC. Old but nicely maintained, not a lot of ammenities but we were busy sightseeing. They do not have a guest services area for printing documents like airline boarding passes, you call the front desk. Bedroom was beautiful, bathroom counterspace was a little tight. Kitchen area was odd, no utensils, just a sink, a coffe maker and a fridge. The cafe downstairs is a gem.... A little far away from the busy core, but depending on what you want (quiet for sleeping, or busy are for doing things) it can work out just fine, it did for us. Founding Farmers restaurant is just across the street, a very lively place. TGIF is there also. Valet parking is a must, taxi's are readily available and very reasonable.

Room Tip: The higher floors have a nice view and get you up away from the busy streets

Thank you for your feedback! We appreciate you taking the time to tell us about your stay. The space that you are referring to as a kitchen, is actually a wet bar area with cafe seating not meant to be a full functioning kitchen space, unfortunately we do not have the capacity to have full kitchens, in the future you can request utensils from our guest services.

We welcome you to come back soon and look froward to having you.
