Booked this hotel for the price and was not disappointed. Of course you could pick at things but overall, it was a pleasant stay. I take my reviews to heart for what they provide, I don't expect anyone to tuck me in or 5 star treatment when I'm getting a good deal and so on. The pros of the hotel for sure blow away any cons. At first dealings, the attempt for early check in didn't happen because of housekeeping needing to turn over the rooms but the porters were accommodating in holding our luggage while we started our adventures. The front desk was very nice and helpful. Michael, the bartender at the in-house bar was very good with recommendations and where to avoid for St Paddys weekend/day. Cleanliness was great. We came a day before a snow storm, the one knock on the room was the in room thermostat didn't seem to lower when the room was plenty warm. Also, we initially started with a room facing NJ ave, caution: fire trucks/ambulances will sound the alarm from the firehouse less than a block away, if you're trying to sleep in and the porters use their whistles to call for cabs- you're gonna have an early morning. That was quickly fixed when we asked the front desk to move rooms, had a new one that afternoon on the inside. Hotel is walking distance from Union Station which takes you anywhere you wanna go on the Metro. Starbucks right across the street. Out and to the left a few blocks is the corner of the Mall and from there all the sites. There is a walmart down the street if you forget or need anything. Always a taxi outside waiting, if not just wait a few seconds and the awesome porters will hail one for you. For us, we walk almost everywhere, after Day 2 we were beat and started taking taxis to the White House and for dinner, next time I'd probably go with a closer hotel in the middle of everything but I have no complaints regarding Washington Court. Great hotel, friendly staff, great porters.
