    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

    Rooms nice. No complaints. VERY NOISY - so not enough sound proofing from L ST. Was very difficult to sleep as noise went through the night. Staff is nice and cordial. Other than the noise - I'd stay here - just not on the L ST Side.

    Good price, better location, best service

    The people who work here were amazing and friendly! They were quick to help and share information. The hotel itself is certainly older, which presents its own issues. The air conditioning could not be turned on because it is on central heat and air; it was 80 without turning on anything. The staff provided a box fan to help out and we had to sleep with the windows open. The water also had to be turned on full hot and no cold in order to get a hot shower. The cleaning crew did not replace the towels when they came in to clean only making the bed and taking the trash. It’s perfectly situated to walk to the National Mall and to the Smithsonian Museums - I made it with a broken leg with very little issues.

    Unfortunately the AC was nonfunctional and cooling the room required opening an ally fan

    Very pleased with Hotel RL DC

    Yes, this hotel & the older building it's in has it quirks, but if you go in knowing that then it has a lot to offer. The unique coffee shop/lobby was not an issue at all. Check-in and check-out were both simple and we were greeted very kindly every time we left or returned. The room was huge and so was the TV! WiFi worked well in the room and the beds were comfortable. It lacked some furniture, but at the same time a full sofa was nice to have. The bathroom was a little small and dated, but nothing that detracted from the stay. As for the uncontrollable heat, we kept ours turned off and occasionally cracked the window when it was still too warm -- we faced the alley so traffic noise was at a minimum. I have buried the lead, but the location is great! Having both the Farragut West and North metro stations nearby was perfect, plus it's not a far walk to the White House & National Mall. For the price I would definitely stay here again. Also, make sure to go one block over and get a sandwich at Bub & Pop's. Saw them featured on the Food Network and had some of the best sandwiches ever.

    RL joke

    Bathroom was disgusting, shower curtain barely worked and walls were gross. Also, there is parking available like they said, but only if you want to pay them an extra 45 dollars which is a joke! Also, there was no tv remote and had to go get one. Set heater at 68, woke up to room being 81 and climbing. Was just a joke for that much money. Wouldnt pay 25 dollars to stay there again.
