Although our room was upgraded to a suite it wasn't better. The king bed was very comfortable but my son had to sleep on the fold out couch. Not comfortable, and bathroom was hard to get to with bed out.
The staff was wonderful and very accommodating. Overall our stay was wonderful. I would recommend this to everyone.
"Great location, great staff and a connection to DC"
The hotel staff were very accommodating and attentive. Their positivity and constant greeting I think made the difference. The hotel has a younger vibe and it sometimes ruined by kids running around. I loved the relaxed atmosphere of the rooftop pool area. The announcements of events (which are great) was sometimes wrong but it was overshadowed by the other things going on. It is in a great location for metro and other sights to see. The lounge and restaurant/bar area was modern but not as cozy. It made me feel like I was in DC.
Lovely stay at this boutique hotel which is also pet friendly. Good sized room and fair price- handy having a restaurant on site when you arrive tired and hungry.
The only negative was that two nights of parking was very expensive - $142.00 due to $30.00 hotel fee on top of the parking charge and tax.
I have stayed at this property many, many times over the last 10 years. It is my go-to hotel in DC. However, I may be changing my routine as the property, once first rate, is in need of some renovation. Although some major renovations have been made to the lobby, restaurant and bar, the upper floors need some attention. The furniture has become a bit worn; the bathrooms need some modernization.
Nice hotel for our one night stay in DC. Very clean. Friendly staff. Not far from attractions. Only downfall is the sound of the busy streets of DC at night, which comes with all hotels within city limits I'm sure.
First trip to Washington to commemorate a wedding anniversary. We traveled by train and walked or used public transportation. Getting from Union Station, et cetera to the Normandy was easy on the L1 or L2 bus. The Normandy staff people were friendly and helpful, e.g., showing how to use coffee-expresso-latte maker, getting change for transportation, invitation to evening wine and cheese, providing morning paper, getting location of nearby store to buy fruit and sandwiches for the return trip. When the toilet fill valve stuck, a maintenance person was there within five minutes and had it unstuck and checked in less than ten minutes. (No problem with the valve after that.) The neighborhood and room were quiet and room temperature controlled easily by wall thermostat. Towels, soap, et cetera were ample. Room was clean and bed and bedding were comfortable. We did not have breakfast at the hotel, but a breakfast buffet was available. The room had television and DVD player and outlets for other electronic devices, but we did not make use of them except for the television.
Mid-rises and mansions grace the leafy streets of Dupont Circle, where independent cafes and shops thrive. With a number of gay bars and businesses, this area is DC’s main gay neighborhood. Foreign flags fly high on Embassy Row, the stretch of Massachusetts Avenue from the Circle to the National Zoo and National Cathedral. At night, locals head north to Adams Morgan for drinks and live music.
