With an older hotel, one expects to encounter a general lack of modern amenities but some old-world charm. We felt that we experienced neither at Hotel Lombardy. The room (on the 11th floor) had views of other office buildings and was relatively small. The A/C was so loud we turned it off one night, even though it was warm. The cleaning service was […] inconsistent in terms of things they did and gave on two separate days. We thanked the doormen every time but never got a "you're welcome" (small stuff, I know, but what's the point of having a doorman, then?). We also had a bad experience at the bar on the first floor; not sure what the bartender's problem was that evening, but he was not at all helpful or friendly to us. And when we checked out, the front desk didn't even ask how our stay was. Oh well. It means we will not return and will not recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hotel Lombardy Great Stay"
Conveniently located, close to the White House and The Mall, was a well- appointed hotel with all the amenities one would need. The personnel were very friendly and attentive. It's probably the quietest place I've ever stayed in a big city.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great staff and very clean"
We stayed over a holiday weekend. From the time we arrived to the time we left we were treated like family. One day we left late morning and did not return until very late that night. Front desk said they were getting concerned and glad we made it back. Very nice personal touch. My only complaint is the shower curtain liner kept flying in at me. But […] that's not enough to keep me from staying there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Second time I stayed at Hotel Lombardy and I enjoyed both experiences. Good prices for the area and great location. Will keep using this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A little different"
The hotel has charm and character. Staff went above and beyond to help me when I lost something in a taxi. The hotel's restaurant is very good, and the room I had was spacious and pleasant. Metro and bus are within easy reach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A delightful change from big hotels"
This was a wonderful find. This was my second stay, and certainly not my last! A small, upscale place with historical roots. Beautifully decorated, nice and quiet. The staff was always friendly and helpful. Fantastic bar, comfy seating and a 40's type feel, and even a better bartender. He will make a special drink for you if you just express what you're […] in the mood for. Restaurant was top notch too, although not inexpensive. Provide the Washington Post in the am which is rare these days. Close to Foggy Bottom Metro, walking distance to many good restaurants, and easy to get to all of the tourist monuments.

This hotel was a great! The staff was very friendly, the rooms were clean, and the location was fantastic. It was a very beautiful boutique hotel that was worth every penny. I would definitely stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very convenient location, comfortable rooms. We received a complementary upgrade and had more space. Wonderful value as well, given the reasonable daily rate and location. Would definitely stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A comfortable stay near GW University"
My wife and I stayed for two nights at the Lombardy. The location is just about 3 blocks from Foggy Bottom Metro stop, so the Mall and other area attractions are a short ride away. The service was great, our room was very clean and charming. The hotel is decorated with unique furnishings. However, we did find the room a bit small and the hallways a […] little cramped.

"Charming Old World Hotel, needs Adjustments"
I fell in love with this hotel the minute I walked in. It's a true gem, original details but not faded or dowdy, The Asian appointments, give it a British Colonial feel. The bathroom is wonderful with a bath robe and good water pressure. There are many small things they miss….the room door has a decorative outside door that makes a huge bang, few felt […] adhesive discs would be great help. Plugs reachable by both nite stands. Better lighting. Making sure the TV's are unlocked. The hotel staff is very fussy. Every time I walked in the lobby, I was accosted like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. My safe jammed and the nite desk clerk was rude and did not help at all. A quick google search gave me info to open. All in all, I would not stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Deliciously Comfortable with Great Character"
Our son is a student at GWU which is adjacent to the Lombardy. We have made this our home during visits and my husband's business and service in DC. The staff is great initially and exceptional after they know you. The rooms are maintained well and clean. The breakfast is delicious and convenient. It is a great, older independent hotel with modern amenities: […] Wifi, mini-bar, etc. It is a bargain given its location. It is not "new" but is really comfortable. I once called it deliciously "seedy" but that is unfair. It is deliciously comfortable if you are looking for a temporary home in DC. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
stay here all the time - love it! perfect location for Foggy Bottom, GWU. Clean, Comfortable, Staff extremely amenable,helpful, pleasant.BedRooms are small but perfectly comfy and kitchen areas are a bonus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Beds and room were very clean, updated, comfortable. Overhead fan was nice and made the room more comfortable. Bathroom door was missing a 'tongue' so it wouldn't stay closed. Maid service knocked on the door at 8:30 and asked if we were leaving so they could clean the room! Location was good, halls are spooky with a double door for privacy. Because […] of the age of the building, the floors creaked when walked on. We could hear on occasion the people above us walking. The hotel restaurant was cute, white linen table cloths. Had the best spinach, shitake mushcroom and swiss omlette ever! Coffee was excellent. Valet was awesome - we gave him a big tip as he was quite a show getting the cabs out of the way for our car!

"Hotel near George Washington University."
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is centrally located. One of D.C.'s finest restaurants is across the street, as are nice bakeries and shops. Next to the hotel is the former home of James Madison. A hotel of this age and character will have flaws. The faucet that diverts water from bath to shower did not work. Luckily, I like showers. […] Not every room has a refrigerator. But the atmosphere, location and price made it an excellent stay for me. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great stay!! Really nice, attentive, friendly staff. One gentleman in particular was very welcoming and gave our daughter fresh apples when we arrived and when we departed. My husband travels frequently with his job, and he was thrilled with the experience! He said hands down it was the best place he has stayed this year!! It was very quiet and relaxing […] for me as well! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great non-chain alternative"
We loved the old fashioned look and feel of this hotel. Everyone very pleasant, room was nicely appointed, bar was cozy. Breakfast service slightly slow, which was understandable on a Sunday morning.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel need a lot of updating"
This was our 4th stay at The Lombardy and our last. Although very close to GW where our child goes to school, it is in need of a lot of updating. Price is good and it is very clean but AC is very loud at night and blows directly on your bed. Service is slow- staff is nice but just really slow. Bathrooms small and very old fashioned. There are other […] hotels that are a tad more in money and more modern, comfortable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Charming historic hotel with a wonderful staff"
I was pleasantly surprised by the Hotel Lombardy. The staff are particularly kind, thoughtful and engaging...so much so that you want to take them all home with you! I cannot say enough about their kindness and hope to visit them all again soon. The rooms were comfortable with a historic element. Nice bathrooms and all the basics one would need.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"A neighborhood gem"
I am a frequent traveler to DC and always stay at The Lombardy. The staff make me feel as though they are welcoming me home and the rooms are both charming and spacious.

Great restaurants surround this boutique hotel and it is walking distance to […] major DC attractions. I look forward to returning again and again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Beautiful Victorian Style! A nice escape."
Had a great stay in many ways. The interior design was wonderful for anyone who loves 1920's style, was clean, peaceful/quiet and the surrounding neighborhood was just perfect with shops right across the street. Breakfast was perfect as well right in the hotel. Even if you need a solo staycation, this is a wonderful option. Classy and peaceful. Hope […] to visit again soon.

"charming old world atmosphere"

"Nice hotel in great location with helpful staff"
Very helpful and welcoming staff. Hotel was located in a great location-monuments and museums were easy to get to using metro or a bus. Valet parking is expensive but parking in DC itself is expensive-on weekends you can use the free street parking though. Rooms were not very spacious but well maintained with good amenities. Staff were polite and helpful […] in storing the luggage after checkout. Definitely recommend this hotel and will go there again in my next DC trip. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great hotel! Would definitely stay again."
Stayed here for a weekend in August. The hotel was close to everything I wanted to do/see and the nearest train was only 2-3 blocks away. Found parking nearby (washingtondc.bestparking.com) for way cheaper than the hotel's $42.50 valet rate which was good. Hotel was very clean and our room was great. The hotel was accommodating in placing us next to […] a friend that was also staying the same weekend. I would definitely recommend going to eat at Founding Farmers across the street (make a reservation first!). The staff was very nice and helpful: offered to carry bags, held doors open, etc. I would definitely recommend staying here and look forward to staying here again sometime in the future.

"Expected more out of 3.5 stars. A little sketchy"
Maybe I'm realizing I'm more into modern than historic, but still. The water pressure in the shower was terrible. The entrance to check in and lobby area are incredibly tiny. I also did not like the additional wooden cover door in front of the regular room door I think it's a safety hazard and defeats the purpose of the peephole. One of the elevators […] is ridiculously small. The bed was ok and the room was clean. Overall I didn't feel completely safe here kind of a sketchy vibe. Will not be booking this hotel again.

"Location is everything"
We had a wonderful visit to DC courtesy in part to the Hotel Lombardy. The location was excellent both for sight seeing and for visiting GW University. The staff was attentive and our room was surprisingly roomy. I would stay again given the opportunity.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great location in DC"
I took my daughter to DC to visit some area colleges. This was an awesome hotel that was close to everything! A handful of Metro stations were within walking distance. We were able to get in some siteseeing while we were there and the hotel location made it easy to walk to the White House and several of the monuments. The staff was very friendly and […] helpful. The rooms were clean, well decorated and decent in size. The bathroom was pleasantly large. You must stop in to the hotel bar called the Venetian lounge for a drink. Love the decor and furniture in this room!! We especially want to give a shoutout to Mohammed who runs the restaurant in the evening for dinner. He has been there for 22 years and is a wealth of knowledge. I would definitely recommend this hotel to all. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"wow--great place next to GWU"
The location could not have been more convenient for a conference at George Washington University. The hotel was very, very nice, but the staff was even more of a standout: The desk staff was courteous, and the bell staff went above and beyond--they arranged for an affordable limo to pick us up at our requested time on our day of departure. Finally, […] the room was much nicer than expected, having a small kitchenette. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
