Great hotel. Friendly and welcoming staff. Very close to union station and the Capitol building. Within 30 minutes walk of the whites house.
My room was right beside the vending machines which ran as loud as a generator 24/7 during my whole stay. Cleanliness was just ok, bathroom was a little grubby. There was also a lot of noise from other people staying in the hotel right up to about 3am, would be better if they had staff patrol the ...
Extremely friendly hotel staff willing to help and give advice re restaurants, shopping, tourist attractions etc. Room large with spare fridge and nice bathroom. Excellent balcony overlooking the pool (given upgrade, very nice surprise). Wifi unfortunately kept cutting out and did not work a lot ...
Great location, friendly staff, early check in and luggage storage, useful restaurant guide provided on request
Cleanliness of the room. Gym has everything you need for a proper workout and location is perfect, close to Metro Station and close to all the sights
The Baron is tired. You can see that from the carpet at the front door and the small reception desk struggling to accommodate modern guest-management systems. But it serves a really important purpose - reasonably priced, clean and comfortable in a really handy area for everything. I really liked ...
Great staff, great location, good breakfast and the comfiest beds ever! ok so the hotel has some renovation work going on but this did not disturb the stay in anyway.
We spent 2 nights at this hotel. At check-in we were given a complimentary upgrade to a Deluxe River View on the 14th floor from a Superior King Room as we were visiting DC for our honeymoon. The hotel is quiet, the lobby is nice. The rooms are large, clean and the River View can be quite nice. Ask ...
Superb level of comfort and class in central DC. Everything about the hotel offers class and style with a distinct European feel. Even the interior rooms are wonderful. I would not hesitate to stay again. Only downside is that it is rather expensive.
Located in Dupont Circle, this luxury hotel is within a 10-minute walk of National Geographic Society and White House. Walter E. Washington Convention Center and George Washington University are also within 1 mile (2 km). Farragut North Station is 7 minutes by foot and Farragut West Station is 9 minutes.
The Walter E Washington Convention Centre is a massive complex in the heart of downtown Washington, with easy access to many different Washington hotels. With 77 individual meeting rooms, it can hold events for up to 42,000 people. While you are there, view the $4 million art collection on display.
Many of Washington's best restaurants are in the downtown area and the White House district while Capitol Hill is the place to head for if you favour the more relaxed style of food markets and stalls. Washington has a reputation for its extensive ethnic dining opportunities such as Etete, a popular Ethiopian restaurant on 9th Street NW, where you can sample their speciality, called Kitfo, a marinated beef dish.
Washington has extensive shopping opportunities, close to all the major hotels. Union Station, once one of the world's largest train stations, is now a one-stop shopping and dining experience. Those seeking a more alternative Washington experience should head for the Dupont Circle area. This vibrant, artsy scene is also the centre of the gay community in Washington and is home to one of the country's most impressive farmer's markets, FreshFarm Market.
The capital of the USA has dozens of places worth visiting but the best is the Smithsonian Institution, which is a complex of multiple museums scattered throughout Washington DC, mainly between Third and Fourteenth Streets. And of course, no one should miss a tour of the US Capitol Building, the White House and the Supreme Court.
One of the breakout sports in Washington is football, or soccer for Americans, with DC United being one of the best teams in the MLS. The Washington Redskins, however, are what Americans know as footballers. The Redskins regularly sell out the 50,000-seat stadium FedEx Field. Meanwhile the Verizon Center is home to both the Washington Capitals ice hockey team and the Washington Wizards basketball team.
