I stayed at the Lombardy for business, and was very pleased with the quality of the hotel, including staff and restaurant. It has a European feel to it, complete with charm - and small elevators. My only quibble - and it's a small one- is that the bathrooms could stand renovating. I would be happy to stay there again- and recommend it to others.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very friendly staff and well kept hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The room very clean and nice. It is a historic building so some of the room's features are unique but the hotel did a good job blending the historic features with up to date features.Overall very satisfied although it is a bit expensive per night you are in a great location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Loved the Hotel Lombardy"
Great location and I had a great room at the end of the hall - far away from the elevator!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel in a great location. Rooms are small but really nice and at a good price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ideal for business travelers but not families."
The best features were the extremely comfortable mattress and the rainforest style showerhead. In fact, nearly everything was excellent except the hotel was "built in historical DC" (i.e. somewhat old), so the room door did not open easily. I had to lift up and twist the handle several times to enter the room, and after each unsuccessful attempt, the […] keycard took 30 seconds to reset. This took about four to five tries. Also, for some reason, even thought the rooms are indoors, each one has a wooden screen door hooked to a spring that slams shut. If you have kids, you should consider staying someplace else.

"Nice stay in DC"
Beautiful, comfortable hotel in downton DC. A little difficult to park and get in upon arrival. Pleasant staff. Very nice suite. Clean, comfortable. Excellent restaurant.Genuine Expedia guest review
I had to seek refuge from a recent snowstorm in Washington, DC and luckily I found a room at the Lombardy, which afforded me a short walk the next morning to my office at a K St law firm a block away. The room was a steal at $109 plus valet parking. I arrived quite late and was completely exhausted. However, the desk staff and valet took care of me […] quickly and showed me to my room, which was comfortable, clean and well furnished. I spent a very quiet evening and arrived at work the next day refreshed and ready to work. Parking is expensive, but the valet service is outstanding. This is a classic hotel that met every expectation. Highly recommended! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Capital Classic"
The Lombardy Hotel's initial website photo doesn't do it justice. Originally an apartment building, this beautifully maintained, non-smoking small hotel is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is a classic and was built as an apartment building in the 1920s. The original individual brass mailboxes lining the entry hallway are carefully […] polished, seemingly daily. Since the rooms were apartments, they come--or at least ours did--with a kitchenette, as well as a small dining table & 2 chairs. Our reasonably priced room had an excellent king-sized bed, a separate dressing table and bench adjacent to plenty of mirrored closet space, a desk with chair, as well as a full bathroom--with a great shower head!--and a window that opened! In fact, all the modern, double paned windows open. It's nice to have fresh air. The intimate 34-seat hotel restaurant was excellent; our three dinners equaled or were better than the 3-star restaurants we also patronized, and meal prices were reasonable. (I had the outstanding crab cakes twice!) During our six-night stay the staff were uniformly gracious and helpful. Much appreciated services: complimentary Washington Post & 2 bottled waters daily; free & easy internet access; and complimentary shoe shinning by just leaving shoes in a bag outside the room door before midnight. The hotel is near the White House and just a short cab ride to Georgetown. Bellmen kindly hail taxis for you. We will definitely be back! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"You don't have to leave"
This is a lovely old hotel but all is clean and updated. You don't have to leave if you are not interested in the tourist attractions. If you are here on business they have a lovely quant little lounge where you can unwind with a glass of wine and then go into a beautiful dining room or you can just have dinner at the bar if you choose to do so. Very […] friendly staff and very accommodating. It is a little weird to get to if you are not familiar with the area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to W.H., Capitol, downtown, and metrorail"
Great hotel and location. Staff was courteous, restaurant was nice, short walk to many eateries, and 3 block walk to the metro station where you can get anywhere in D.C.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great DC getaway spot"
Staff was great and helpful. Room and bathroom were clean and well kept. Thoughtful touches and attention to detail in the little things in the room and bathroom; like bath and body works products in the bathroom. We had a basic room with a King Bed, was a little tight. Had an issue with the TV, called the front desk and a friendly onsite maintenance […] guy showed up in minutes. Location is great, 3 block NW of the White House on PA Ave. We walked to Georgetown and back; walked home from DuPont Circle; 3 and 4 blocks from Farragut West and North, respectively. Great food and shopping within a short walk. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Parking could have been betterGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Absolutely gorgeous, historic building with comfortable rooms and relatively fair prices. A helpful staff and lots of amenities. I do wish there was a business center, but that's a minor concern. The staff was very helpful without being pretentious; always friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice and Quiet"

"Wonderful DC hotel"
We loved everything about this hotel. It had small European charm. The beds were extremely comfortable. The room was perfectly appointed and everything seemed new, fresh and tastefully decorated. Our room had a small dressing area, a kitchen with a small dining table, and lots of windows. We will definitely stay there every time we go to DC.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel, perfect location"
The hotel is conveniently situated in the middle of the downtown and close to a metro station. The room was small but had a good bed. I arrived late and did not notice but the heating did not work. After I complained in the morning it was fixed. The staff was nice and helpful. Good hotel for a business stay.Genuine Expedia guest review

Great boutique hotel with perfect combination of traditional feel and modern amenities. The staff was friendly and helpful.

I will definitely be staying here again anytime I find myself in D.C.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great Hotel, Great Location"
Overall we loved the hotel. It is a beautiful historic building with lots of character. Though it seems small as you go through the hallways, the room was surprising big. I gave a 4 on the condition and overall because there were a couple minor issues mostly with things that needed repair but it did not impact our stay in a negative way. I did alert […] the front desk upon check out as we were only there for one night. Just beware it is a little difficult to navigate to if you are unfamiliar with the city but it's the city and that is to be expected. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Valentines Day/Presidents Day"
Room was very clean, we really enjoyed how there were bottles of water after every time our room was cleaned. Our flight got in early and they were very accommodating to get us in our room as soon as possible. We were right next to the service room so we could hear the maids speaking pretty loudly, but it did not destroy our weekend. I think the walls […] are pretty thin in general. My only real complaint was that room service and the restaurant was a bit expensive. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel in Great Location"
We loved this hotel. We arrived early and they happily accommodated us and checked us into our room. The room was lovely and clean with plenty of space for us. We started our touring via the Metro from the hotel but soon learned that there was almost nowhere we couldn't walk to. Not that the sites were a block away, but they were all close enough to […] make a walk (in February) very pleasant. The staff was friendly and helpful and the restaurant was very nice as well. The cost of our stay was very reasonable for such a lovely hotel. I'm looking forward to staying there again on our next trip to D.C. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"GREAT MINUS FRONT DESK STAFF & PRICEY PARKING..."
THIS PLACE OVERALL IS WONDERFUL. THE BED INCLUDING THE PILLOWS WERE AMAZINGLY FIRM AND COMFY. THE PILLOWS NEVER WENT FLAT. HOUSEKEEPING WAS SO FRIENDLY AND WONDERFUL. THE SEPARATE KITCHEN AREA AND THE SMALL BATHROOMS MADE ME WANT TO FURNISH IT WITH IKEA GOODS. THE ROOMS WERE REALLY GREAT. THE FRONT DESK STAFF WERE SLIGHTLY RUDE AND REALLY TURNED ME […] OFF. THEY WERE TOO BUSY TALKING AMONGST THEMSELVES AND JUST DIDNT GIVE OFF A FRIENDLY VIBE. WHEN I HAD CALLED A DAY PRIOR TO OUR ARRIVAL, THE FRONT DESK PERSON WAS SO RUDE AND HAD THE WORST PHONE ETIQUETTE. HOWEVER, LATE NIGHT FRONT DESK HELP WAS FRIENDLY AND KNEW THE CITY WELL ON WHO DELIVERED LATE NIGHT TO THE HOTEL. EVERYTHING WAS GOOD OVERALL AND I WOULD STAY HERE AGAIN.

"Very good but not quite excellent"
Lombardy was overall - really good. Room was clean, spacious, and comfortable. Nice gym equipment/room. My complaints - i arrived earlier than expected so I called a day ahead and was abruptly told "we don't allow early check-in." Then when i arrived that morning, I asked again, and was told it would be a $99 early check-in fee?! What? I just checked […] my bag with concierge. The hotel restaurant is nice, but menu is VERY limited, and was made worse when I was stuck in hotel (it was one of the snow storm in 1/14 so everything was closed around the hotel) - and had limited, expensive options within the hotel to eat. So other than not being able to check in early without a significant charge, and expensive-limited food options - Lombardy is a solid hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Perfect boutique hotel with old world charm. Best location if you are visiting GWU. Staff is responsive and accommodating. Room Small but lacking nothing. Only negative - shower curtain - they should switch to the bowed shower curtain rods. This was our 3rd time staying. Will be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I've been here a few times. Very convenient, reasonably priced & good breakfast. Bar area is quiet & good for meetings/conversationsGenuine Expedia guest review
"Extremely helpful and pleasant staff."
I very much enjoyed my stay at this conveniently located "boutique" hotel. The staff, from the front desk to the doormen to housekeeping were extremely professional, courteous, and helpful. They anticipated my needs and acted upon them before I even asked! I like the "old-world charm" of the place. The only negatives being the wifi routers/servers didn't […] communicate well with some of my software which was unusual, but I was able to work around those problems, and the restaurant seemed a little pricey; but, I must say that I did not patronize the dining room so maybe the food was worth the cost. I will stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"good location, solid hotel"

Loved the spacious room and updated bathroom. Really nice place to stay within walking distance to Foggy Bottom metro, restaurants, etc. Only downside was our room looked into a vacant office building so we couldn't open the window much.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to GWU. COmfortable, Very Clean with Kitchen"
Second stay and enjoyed it. Bellboys and bar boys are exceptionally nice and helpful. Room is very clean and good size. Kitchenette is useful, with coffee maker and fridge, like a little office. Bathroom small but clean. Waffle robes, no slippers. Lovely dressing area with vanity. Only complaint are very uncomfortable pillows that are to bulky and may […] give you a stiff neck -- all four pillows bulky, and I could not figure out how to turn on the tv despite years of higher education!
