We took the baron hotel for 3 nights. Thanks to TripAdvisor i knew i won't be disappointed. We've been here a couple with 2 teenagers and there was no complain from the kids side. The location is excellent very close to doupon circle. We also could walk to the mall. The rooms are very clean. The great surprise was the...

(Good, rather then very good, but better than average) Nice hotel about 10 mins' walk from DuPont Circle underground station. Perfect for what I wanted, although 2 downsides.... Wifi not available in all bedrooms as advertised: 4th floor room NO, but 3rd floor room YES, although good reception in the Reception area & outside front door (smoking area). Secondly, I...

Within a mile (walking distance) of many destinations in town, I thought the location for the price was very good. Restaurant & bar downstairs and market & food around the corner. The room is not fancy or very big, but we use our rooms for sleep not as a destination and we slept like babies. With the bar downstairs we...

The hotel was conveniently placed, older building but fully equipped including air conditioning. Missed a coffee maker in the room but no problem borrowing an iron. Very friendly front desk staff. Loved the old fashioned elevator!

Don't go to this hotel. Very dirty and really bad service. When we looked at our room the air con unit was nearly on the pillows. Nowhere to hang your clothes not even a coaat hanger. When we complained we were told "what do you expect for the money you paid" We paid$150 a night. I am glad we were...

Found this hotel on Booking.com. Rate was very very reasonable for a 1 night stay, especially for Washington DC. Only downfall, the "Queen" room really only had a full size bed. The rooms were very small, but exceptionally clean. Bathroom looked as though it had recently been remodeled. Staff was very friendly. There is no parking at the hotel available,...

Visited Washington at conference time when at least 15,000 had arrived for one conference so the city was packed, accommodation scarce and very expensive. This place was pretty much a glorified backpackers with awful old beds, dreadful mattresses, a 1940's lift, paint peeling from walls in chunks and everything creaks. Needs a serious overhaul. $5 breakfast available - apparently fruit...

The location is great: convenient to DuPont Circle, Rock Creek Park, and the Metro. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and I had no problems with my reservation or check-in or check-out. On the downside: the lobby area is shabby, I strained my shoulder trying to open and close the manual doors on the antique elevator (I eventually...

Was notified at 830pm after landing from a flight that I was rebooked to their sister property - the windsor inn. It was too late to find an alternative, but there were zero accommodations made for THEIR error. To make it worse I was told "oh come on, it's a cheap bed and breakfast who cares" Horrible service, blatantly did...

I know that Washington is one of the places on earth that hotels are really expensive. As in Rio de Janeiro for instance. But charging 500 dollars a night to a guest house self called as hotel must be a joke. Just take a look at the picture I took and the furniture of my room. At least the room...
