“Close to Metro, GW Univ., White House - Foggy Bottom!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

Very pleasant, efficient, clean, nice size rooms, reasonable rates, friendly bar/bistro. Great bed and large bathroom, with covered vanity with bend seat for makeup, etc. Also liked the strong shower head! Aveda products -nice touch! Very well-stocked mini-bar, extra wine and candy on shelf, too. Only trouble was hearing heater noises in the night but didn't tell the desk. Courtyard-facing room was quiet all night on St. Patrick's Day! On Penn. Ave about 5 blocks from the White House, but sort of off the Ave. at an angle. Nice area to find pubs, restaurants, coffee, etc.

Room Tip: Ask for courtyard room - quieter.

Amazing rooms, very nice staff, elegant decor, and walking distance to the National Mall. What more could you want?

We arrived at the Hotel Lombardy by car and were immediately greeted by the valet/doorman. We were escorted to the front desk and check-in was quick and smooth. This hotel is very quaint. My only complaint, if I could muster one . . . Is that the walls are a little thin and you maybe able to hear in the next room. We had breakfast at the Cafe Lombardy and it was excellent. Its proximity to everything D.C was a plus. We shopped in Georgetown. Ate in Union Square and even took the Hop on Hop off bus tour. If your looking for a nice hotel....at a reasonable price. You have found it here! Lastly parking, like all D.C. hotels is $40 a night, but the staff, as amiable as they are, we tell you places to park nearby.

I stayed at the Lombardy for one night. It is a classic boutique hotel. Check-in was seamless and I went to my room (210). There is an interesting shuttered door in front of the regular room door which, if you had lots of luggage, might pose a bit of an issue. It's an attractive feature, but had no practical value that I could see.

The room was average in size, with a small kitchenette and small closet area. The bathroom was clean and functional. Wifi was good and strong.

DIrectly out my window was an office building, no more than 20 feet away. It was a little odd walking into the room and seeing people so close. Drapes were quickly pulled. For the most part, the room was very quiet. I did notice some floor noises from above in the morning, and the door rattled a bit as well, which to some may be disconcerting since it could be interpreted as someone trying to get in.

Water pressure in the shower was good, shower head good, and toiletries as expected. A paper was delivered early (before 6:30) and I ate breakfast in the small dining area. Bagel ($6) and tea ($4). I guess that's reasonable.

I'd stay there again. It was a 10 minute walk to the Lincoln Memorial and less than five minutes to GW University. Staff was polite and efficient.

Our stay at the Hotel Lombardy was first class in every way. From the moment we arrived the bellhop; Mr. Anansar (spelling may be slighting skewed) treated us with the utmost respect. He was very charming and made us feel right at home. His advice on dining was spot on! The front desk person was very polite and courteous, quickly allowed us to check in much earlier than the normal check in time
The hotel reminded us of a hotel we had once visited in cental Paris which we loved. All of the ameneties one would expect from a cozy, quaint, and charming hotel. From the rooms to the restaurant; everything was exceptionally clean, neat and orderly. We will definitely stay at this hotel in the future. It's location is only 4 blocks from the White House in one direction, a brisk 15 minute walk to Georgetown in the other and about 3 blocks directly in front of the Lincoln Memorial. We walked everywhere during our stay and wished we would have been able to stay longer. We stayed during the Cherry blossoms festival and the city had a lot of festivities in all directions. We appreciate such great hospitality.
