“Warm wedding bliss”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

We were in DC for a wedding on an unseasonably hot October weekend. When returning to our room two out of the three nights we stayed here we returned to a very hot room! In fact the air conditioner was out! The thermostat registered 84 degrees. Good news is that both nights the "engineer" in house was able to get it running again. Apologies were offered, but a free drink or at least an extra bottle of water would have been nice:-) The rooms were small, not unlike most boutique hotels. But the room was well equipped, with a refrigerator and flat screen television. There are no ice machines for public use, but the front desk will bring ice up in short notice. There is not a "business center", but the front desk will print and deliver to your room, what you need if you send an email to them, and they will provide the email address for you. We only had breakfast in the small hotel restaurant one morning, but the food and service were both excellent. A small indoor mall is across the street and has a CVS, Au Bon Pain, Subway and other cheap eats. Many other restaurants in a two block radius. Only a few blocks from the Metro, White House, Reflection Pool etc...so excellent location. We enjoyed our visit and would return to the Lombardy in DC!

Room Tip: We had a room that faced Pennsylvania Avenue. There were sirens all day and night. But the view ma...

My friend and I stayed at the Hotel Lombardy in early September and just loved it. The rooms were spacious. The beds incredibly comfortable and sheets exquisite. We had arrived from New York and had recently flown from Australia - a 30hr trip - so were exhausted.so instead of touring Washington we spent a long time sleeping off our travels. We ate breakfast in the hotel and found them quite tasty. We found the staff very helpful. There was also free wi-fi so we were able to plan our sightseeing. We were able to walk to the Lincoln Memorial, The White House and many other attractions from the hotel - the World bank is close by also!
I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone wanted a delightful place to stay

We enjoyed our stay in the Hotel Lombardy, a beautiful, comfortable boutique hotel. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. The beds and bedding are so comfortable and of high quality that made it real difficult to get up and go! The lounge is beautiful with a wonderful ambience. Breakfasts were well presented and delicious. All the staff were helpful and friendly. And another important benefit is that most of the sites we wanted to visit were within walking distance or at least with easy access to transport. We had a wonderful stay in DC albeit in the midst of the Government Shutdown.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are good as our friend was just as happy.

Stayed just for a night but will try to stay a week next time! A wonderful well-kept historical hotel with great service and comfy bedrooms.
The hotel building in itself is a gem, built in late 19th. Century American style, just in the middle of a nice neighborhood with several restaurants and services nearby but far from the noise and crowds of Washington DC.
Really enjoyed my stay there, even for just a night, but recommend without any hesitation this hotel for anyone that would like to skip the "big chain hotels" for a more personal touch.

My family had the most enjoyable experience in this charming hotel. We loved the friendliness of the staff, the view from our room, the complimentary shoe shine service, the gym and the convenient location. It was refreshing to walk everywhere and not worry about where to park our vehicle since the Lombardy provides valet service. This Hotel is Washington, D.C.'s best kept secret. Whenever we happen to be in the DC area we will always stay at this quaint hotel.

Room Tip: Corner suites are spacious and gave us a great view of the downtown area on Pennsylvania Avenue.

Lombardy is a lovely old hotel, beautifully kept and exceptionally clean.
We loved our stay here, we could walk to everything, several nice restaurants nearby.
We couldn't fault this hotel at all, loved the old worlds feel and beautiful
furniture in the room.

I stayed for two nights whilst I was transitting from Washington to Atlanta and fully agree with the recent comments about its location. It's a short walk i.e. less than 10mins from Foggy-Bottom and no problems finding it. The hotel was small by US standards, the rooms was very comfortable. We found all the staff were friendly and the food was very good, we had dinner and breakfast both very enjoyable, good quality and reasonably priced. I would recommend a room on the upper floors due to the aircon units outside of the building. I would recommend eating at The Elephant & Castle great atmosphere and the Founding Farmers for the best eggs benedicts! I would look this hotel up again if I'm in the area.

Room Tip: We moved to the 9th floor back from the 3rd side
