Historical Traveler Reviews Hamilton Crowne Plaza Hotel Washington DC
Perfect For Us
This is a first class hotel with extremely courteous staff. The price for this quality could not be beat and believe me I checked. The location is excellent, just a few blocks from the Mall, Whitehouse and Metro Station. We arrived late and called to have the feather pillows changed out (my wife is allergic) and even at the late hour they responded within a minute. This is a common call for us but I have not experienced more prompt or courteous service.
Great Hotel, Great Staff, Wonderful Price, Could not ask for anything more when it comes to all around service and satisfaction.
Elegant hotel at a reasonable price
The Crowne Plaza offers some great web deals and my family of four took advatage of the reasonable rates ($109/night) this summer. The hotel is elegant, the rooms are exceptional, and the staff are friendly and helpful. The only drawback to the stay was the price of parking provided by the hotel. The hotel is in easy walking distance of the White House, the Smithsonian, and the National Mall sites.
Better location than the Ritz-Carlton, Pentagon City
For the past eight years I have stayed at the Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City because it is convenient to the Metro and shopping. Hamilton Crowne Plaza surpasses all expectations. I took the subway to and from the airport, to Friendship Heights, Pentagon City and Crystal City for shopping, the Smithsonian and Capitol for sightseeing and Dupont Circle every night for dining. One block from the Metro and walking distance to the White House. The location cannot be beat.The service was excellent. Everyone from the doorman to the maids were very friendly and cordial. When I inquired about a parking charge and room safe charges which appeared on my bill the clerk promptly took care of the matter.Friends visiting me at the hotel thought I was paying $250 a night and marveled at the weekend rate of $99 and weekday rate of $129. I stayed for a week at the Hamilton Crowne Plaza for the cost of a weekend at the Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City.
Hamilton Crowne parking charges
To second the previous review of the Hamilton, while I found the room very comfortable and the weekend rates a great value, I was charged $10.00 a day for parking, although I hadn't driven. In addition, the bill for the entire stay was for the (much higher) weeknight rate. I was able to get both items straightened out, but it does appear that the hotel has some problems with their billing procedures, and a careful review is essential. Of course, that's a given for any hotel stay. On the positive side, the location can't be beat!
Beware Parking Charges
I stayed at the Hamilton Crowne Plaza in May of 2003. The room was very clean and pleasant--nicely appointed with light beige and white tones, and very well stocked with clean towels. While a bit on the small side, the room was ample size for a downtown hotel, though perhaps a bit dark--lacking an overhead light in the bedroom area. The lobby, while undergoing construction, was also very well furnished, with classical columns and mirrors, and a table with fresh fruit for guests. Also mentionable is the hotel's unbeatable location. Located at the corner 14th and K Street, the hotel is extremely convenient to the Metro system, and numerous attractions from the White House and Washington Monument to the Spy Museum. During my stay, I did have a run-in regarding the parking situation. Upon arriving, I inquired about the parking situation with the concierge who told me of $100 tickets and tricky regulations parking on the street. Being from the New York area and keeping a car in the city, I am no stranger to difficult and seemingly conflicting parking regulations. My car keys were promptly taken by a valet, without mention of any expense. When checking out, I was informed by the clerk that there was a $24 fee for the parking service--perhaps a bit steep for a WEEKEND--when parking is relatively plentiful on the streets of downtown Washington. Upon asking if this fee was standard or could be adjusted for the given situation, I was flatly and rudely told that this was standard, part of the room rental agreement, and not to be questioned. Besides the public humiliation, I felt that the sternness of the reply was generally excessive given the inquiry and the manner in which it was asked.Apart from this incident regarding parking, the hotel was a good value, running weekend specials to attract non-business clientele. Take advantage of its prime location--excellent for sight-seeing--but be forewarned of the parking!
Very Nice Hotel!
I stayed at this hotel this past weekend. It's not a huge hotel. The elevators are very small. They only hold 8 people. The rooms are a decent size. The beds are very plush and comfortable. The bathrooms are nice and they give you plenty of towels. The only problem I had was that there was no light over my closet door. There was a light switch, but not light. Strange. The restaurant, 'Franklin Exchange' was good. The staff was very friendly. We had a drainage problem with the bathtub, and it was fixed promptly. The hotel is located downtown. We were able to walk to the Covention Center, Georgia Brown restaurant, and down to the Smithsonian and Washinton Monument(15 min walk). I recommend it, and would stay here again!
Excellent service, excellent rooms, excellent location.....I could go on. We stayed here New Years Eve and it was fabulous. The rates are good if you book in advance too. the staff were so nice, even giving us a room with a view when I asked and the rooms were lovely. the bathrooms are large and well stocked...........stay there if you are in DC
Great Location and price
We stayed here over thanksgiving, and it was great. The rooms were a bit on the smaller size, but we had plenty of room for 4 adults and all our luggage. I couldn't believe the location: one block from the metro, two blocks from the White house, and parking is free on the side of the hotel. And we only paid $79 per night, unbelievable for how nice it is! We loved the feather beds, and having the choice of diffent types of pillows. The room was very nice, and clean. But you have to ask for the room to be cleaned daily, or else they leave it untouched. And there is a fire station around the corner, so it made for some laughs in the middle of the night, when we were startled. But if I visit DC again, I would definitly stay here!
What a great find!
Centrally located at 14th and K, the hotel is two short blocks from a metro station, and across the street from one of the best restaurants in DC--DC Coast. Easy walks and cheap cab rides to other parts of the city.
The hotel room itself was VERY nicely apportioned. I think the hotel was just recently renovated, so when you're booking, you may want to ask about whether the floor that you're booking has already been renovated. We stayed on the 14th and the room was beautiful. Pretty fabrics for bed and wall decorations; roomy, attractive bathroom; small sitting area with comfy chair and a separate desk area.
Didn't eat at the adjacent hotel/restaurant but it looked very nice. I would gladly stay at this hotel again.
