DC Washington Court Capitol Hill

I just returned from my trip to DC (2/20 - 2/22/07), with a stay at the Washington Court. The room was very nice, with plenty of workspace, and even a TV in the bathroom. The hotel was convenient to the capitol and Union Station, clean, and the staff was courteous (if not especially bright). I asked for a view of the capitol, which they were happy to grant me. When I got to my room, I found I had a sweeping view of business offices across an enclosed atrium.

We just returned from a 7 night stay at the Washington Court Hotel. $125/night, booked in February.

They mentioned "You booked through Priceline," but did not seem negative about it -- more to say it was already paid for and a credit card would just be needed for incidentals. Our room was on the 9th floor with a "view" of the inner atrium -- not a problem for us as we were only there in the evenings and didn't open the drapes much.

The room and bathroom were nice and large. The bed was quite comfortable and we slept quite well. I'll post photo's.

It is an easy two block walk to Union Station and felt safe day and night (of course my husband is a photographer who talks to a lot of folks and made a new friend of the homeless man we passed daily on our route). The bar was welcoming and we got in the habit of stopping in for a nightcap at the end of the day. Tipping the bartender well at the beginning led to generous pours later in the week.

We had one dinner at the bar which was good (chicken) and two breakfasts which were standard over-priced hotel breakfasts.

There is a Starbucks across the street, but also "Billy Goat Tavern" (http://www.billygoattavern.com/home.html). Great place for a breakfast egg sandwich and coffee. Good burgers, fries, and beer at night (but sometimes they are closed for private parties in the evenings). Affordable and friendly.

We would definitely stay here again.
