Bad Start, Great Finish


29 July 2014

I recently lodged at this hotel. It is a perfect locale for business or leisure. Upon checking in I was told the hotel was full; I was given a room with a king bed and a sofa. As I began to unpack I noticed a large amount of dust everywhere and the glass on the tables was filthy. Then a pillow had hair on it and under it...the toilet had brown marks under the rim that could be seen as you walked into the bathroom...the sink and the tub had hair in them...there were no face towels in the room...guest services sent someone up with a pillow and towels...I also told them that I would like another room the next day...when I returned from my first day of business and requested to move, I was assisted by a very accommodating courteous staff that moved me to a wonderful room with a nice view...also, they were in the process of changing their internet service and I could not get in...the staff went out of their way to assist me...this hotel is very convenient to everything and although it started out rocky...due to the concern of the staff ended great...I would stay here again!

In Town for Business -- Worked out Well


28 July 2014


This hotel offers a really central location and close proximity to a couple of METRO stops within a quick walk.

The staff were quick to welcome me and get my bags handled. Also quick with hailing a cab or other tasks as needed. Keep a roll of singles available for this so you can quickly be on your way.

The breakfast, actually all meals are pricey, but this is DC. So if you expect cheap anything -- you are out of luck.

I was upgraded to a junior suite on an executive floor. Very nice with extra sitting room, too bad the view was of an alley. Noise was not too bad.

The elevators were on the small side and older, but functioned well enough.

You could do a lot worse than this spot. That being said, if you're looking for a richer experience -- there are trendier and pricier options. This fills a good niche in the market. I'd come back and stay again.

One of my favorite DC hotels but they have decided to treat their best customers like everyone else. As a Gold IHG member that travels 30 plus nights per year, I appreciated some of the little perks as a frequent traveler. The Hamilton had a club level area that provided Gold and Platinum travelers with an evening snack and morning coffee and nosh - not anymore. I told the front desk that this was disappointing. In addition, my profile always indicates a room preference is upper floor away from elevator. What did I get, lower floor right next to the elevator. I had to switch rooms. Too bad IHG are not taking care of their loyal customers anymore. Will need to consider other options in DC now.

Excellent Hotel When Visiting Washington, D.C.


24 July 2014

The Hamilton Crowne Plaza is an great place to stay in the Downtown area of Washington, D.C. The accomadations are wonderful, there are two restaurants in the hotel (and manhy others nearby), and it is in a great location. It is just a few blocks from the White House and all of the Smithsonian Museums on the Mall. There also is a Metro stop just a block from the hotel. The service is excellent, andthe rate is affordable.

Perfect location


23 July 2014

This is an excellent hotel if you are in Washington, DC, and want a central location. It's beautiful and its restaurant, offering breakfast, lucnh, and dinner, is very good. Walking distance to many other restaurants and attractions. Beds are extraordinarily comfortable and the bathroom is a good size. Very short walk to Metro, which opens up the entire region to you. I was fortunate to get to stay here for two weeks on business and will definitely stay here again if I travel to DC.

Good stay


21 July 2014


At this hotel all was great, the room cleanliness and space, location, amenities, and the staff. The only thing was parking. To my surprise this location has "valet parking only" which I was charged $45 a night for parking my car somewhere. I was only there for a night but it could have been horrible if I was there for any longer. Overall great spot to use for business of leisure travel.

Excellent location

Loved this hotel. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Only complaint was that I was not recognized as an IHG club member and offered snacks, or points or any acknowledgement.

This could be a great Hotel, but...


14 July 2014


Front Desk staff was outstanding.
Concierge was outstanding.
Parking was a bit expensive but we could walk to all the Capital area tourist locations... Parking/bus boys were great.
There is a lot of places to eat in the area.
The room was excellent, very clean and nice. A bit tight, but it is an historic building so don't expect a studio apartment. Rooms were small back then.
Exercise room had very nice equipment, could have used a TV.
There are 4 very small elevators, so expect to wait to get to and from your room if it is busy.
The menu in the guide in the room DID NOT match what was in the restaurant when we got there. You have be seated in the proper area in the restaurant or you can only order certain items from a certain menu, which made no sense to us. We were there in the middle of the afternoon on a holiday, so there was very little crowd when we were seated, and the service was AWFUL. We had to hunt down our waitress, twice, and then finally had the person who was seating customers, handle our check, because it had gotten busy and we could not find her at all to pay. To bad, the food was actually pretty good.
But this place could be great...

Great Location. Reasonable Price.


12 July 2014


This was the second time we stayed at the Hamilton. We chose it again because of its great location - truly walking distance to all the D.C. sites. Also, more than one Metro is close by. The hotel entry and lobby area are lovely. Four elevators move quests easily to and from their assigned floor(s). The rooms are well appointed if not a bit small, but the size is to be expected and is acceptable given the age of the building.

We did not dine in the bar or restaurant as they were very busy due to several World Cup games being played during our stay.

The free Wi-Fi was slow but functional.

We have only two negative comments (areas for hotel improvement):

1. There was absolutely no recognition of our IHG membership. None. Not at check-in, during our stay, or at check-out. As a Platinum member for 9+ years that was a disappointment.

2. Valet parking is the only option the hotel offers, and at $40+ per night it is expensive, even for D.C. Being familiar with the area we parked in the garage (literally) around the corner for $27 per night. It was a 4 minute walk to the hotel and likely the same garage the hotel uses.

All-in-all a very good hotel. We would stay at the Hamilton again.
