I've been pleased with the service and amenities at the Doubletree Hotel. It is conveniently located in a safe district of DC. Buffet breakfast and evening lounge are excellent. Rooms are very quiet for a downtown hotel.

Historical Traveler Reviews Doubletree Hotel Washington Dc
This place is good
Spent 3 nights here last week and it is a pleasant hotel to stay in. The rooms are of a good quality, and I had no issues with anything in the room. About a 10 minute walk to the White House and half an hour to the Capitol. Followed the directions on the website and found the hotel with no problem from the Interstate - valet and staff were pleasant and accomodating. You won't be disappointed if you stay here.
The Hotel had some glitches, but . . .
My daughter and I planned the trip to D.C. for pleasure (7/22/04-7/26/04) before her return to college, and selected the Washington Terrace based on the great reviews by former guests. We had a very enjoyable trip, however, there were several issues I had with the hotel. Once we manuevered the directions given and found the hotel, the valet staff and the check-in process went smoothly, however, within a few moments of entering our room (after a 5 1/2 hour drive without stopping) we quickly discovered the commode was not working properly. We have had that problem with hotels before, so we did not unpack until we had the commode problem fixed and/or were transferred to another room. It took a 2nd phone call to inquire about the status of repair/transfer and almost an hour to resolve the problem. While we were waiting on the commode repair/transfer, we noticed that the in-room safe was closed (which should always be left open for the next guest to re-program), however, it was the maintenance staff person who came to finally fix the commode who had no problem fixing our "locked" safe situation! In addition, I had requested a smoking room but no ashtray was provided. I had to locate another staff person on our floor who eventually provided an ashtray from another room (which he had to clean before handing it over to me). In addition, I did notice that there were remaining hairs and some mold in areas around the shower/tub grout areas although the sink area was relatively clean. With the issues presented at this point, I was too tired to call these details to the attention of the front desk/management staff to request a more prepared/clean room! While the beds were quite comfortable with ample pillows, the bedspreads were worn at the seams, the ice bucket handle was broken as was the desk lamp - even despite the claims that the hotel was recently renovated? We ate dinner at the restaurant (15 Ria) on the premises the night of our arrival, and ordered room service from them as well during our stay because the food was delicious! We would have eaten our meals in the restaurant more often rather than ordering room service, but there was no air conditioning in the restaurant throughout our stay. They did try to make it more comfortable by having fans blowing in the dining/bar areas. The location of the hotel met our expectations, but I do question the security for 3 reasons: (1) the maintenance person was able to quickly "unlock" the room safe; (2) our card keys had to be re-keyed after our 2nd night, and (3) there was a pizza flyer from Pizza Movers & Calzones slid under our door (all of which I found highly unnerving for a hotel of this caliber). I don't think that I would stay at this hotel again, but I would definitely eat at the restaurant (15 Ria).
We absolutely loved this hotel
We stayed here for a weekend in June and had the most wonderful stay. The staff was warm and friendly and the rooms were great. The best part was the Tempurpedic beds. It was the best sleep that I have had at a hotel (and I travel a lot).
Since my return, I have recommended this hotel many times. True, it is not that close to the monuments or the subway but it really is not that bad of a walk.
Staff very accomodating
Upon checking into the hotel we asked the gentleman managing the front desk if he had any stamps. He was unable to find any in his drawer so he pulled out his wallet to see if he had any. He didn't but the point is that he bent over backwards to help us out by checking his wallet. He was very pleasant as was every staff member we encountered. Every employee had a very happy, pleasant, outgoing attitude & were anxious to please.
The hotel itself was very clean, maid service above average. Everything functioned well within our room. 5 stars!!!
A really great place!
I took a chance and went with Priceline for my first trip to DC. The Washington Terrace Hotel was the one that accepted my offer of $65/nt. This hotel exceeded my expectations. The rooms were well appointed with many amenities--plush bathrobe, chocolates, room service, internet access--and most importantly, it was very clean. the only drawback I found was that it was a little far from the major monuments, museums and restuarants. The six blocks from the White House is true but they are very long city blocks. The nearest subway stations are also that same distance away so making a quick trip back to the room was a little difficult. However, the hotel itself was fantastic! Perfect for the business traveler...and for the tourist who doesn't mind walking a lot.
Loved the hotel
this hotle is probably one of the best i have ever stayed at. This hotel not only looked good, but it made you feel good with thier kind managers, waiters, etc. I would reccomend this hotel to any one that wants to have a pleasent nights stay!
We arrived at the Washington Terrace on 4/7/04, upon check-in we were greeted with a smile and everything seemed to be wonderful. The front desk person checked us in and we were on our way up to the room, accompanied by the bellman who was helping with our bags. We unlocked the room we were assigned and, sadly it was already occupied by other guests (the bed was unmade and other guests luggage and private items were all over the room). The bellman was shocked and he ran down to correct the error. We were then upgraded without being asked to a King room, which was excellent service on their part. The new room did appear to have been cleaned, however as we looked around we found that there were several pairs of socks and stockings in the drawer on the nightstand, a broken umbrella under the bed, and a burned CD in the stereo. Well, we figured that was the best we were going to get so we decided to stay put. We did have dinner at the restaurant downstairs and the food was excellant! I had the sirloin and my husband, who was starving had the ravoli-which was such a small portion that he ended up eating the basket of bread just to fill up. The meals were pricey, but at least the steak was worth it. The beds are very comfortable, unlike other hotel beds, so we did sleep rather well. The following day we attemped to do the express checkout, however the system on the TV was not working and we tried to call the front desk, but our phone was broken as well. Upon checkout I did let them know the phone was broken and we left the drawer with the socks in it open for the housekeepers to see, along with the broken umbrella, and the cd. Really, the service was excellant aside from the housekeeping. I was a bit concerned about the linens, but I kept my concerns at a minimum, just to make it through the night. The only flaw at the Washington Terrace is the housekeeping, if that had been better it would have been a perfect hotel experience.
Just came back from a visit to the Washington, DC area and stayed at the Washington Terrace. It's an older hotel, but ahs been completely refurbished. I think this is one the better htels I've stayed at. The rooms are very nicely appointed and it has a very modern upscale feel to it. The only drawback was a smallish bathroom (but very nicely appointed). I would advise anyone looking for a nice palce to stay to seriously consider the Washington Terrace.
Washington Terrace Hotel- DC
Great Hotel 6 blocks from the White House - great room rates as well for the location. Entire hotel has just been remodeled and the rooms are beautiful! Bright colors - very contemporary.Staff was excellent as well as cleaning staff - everyone was extremely nice and helpful with directions since it was our first time around DC.Take the Metro - everywhere. It is only a few blocks away from the hotel and for $6.00 you can ride it all day long all over DC and the surrounding areas.Will definitely stay here our next time in DC - just beware of parking charges - $22.00 a day parking at the hotel. Also, the hotel restaurant is pricey. And don't open the mini bar M&M's and other candies, they start at $2.50 a piece!
If you haven't experienced this hotel, your missing out. It is located near Dupont Circle and within walking distance to most nightlife. We always spend the extra few bucks for a suite because they are twice the size of a guestroom. Beds are amazing, they "understand" service and the restaurant is delicious. Our favorite is the bar...great munchie food before a night on the town.HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND !!

We got up early Sunday morning and met our topdeck crew in the hotel lobby. There is 32 Aussies and one Kiwi (poor bloke).
First impressions are good - think this is going to be a really good group. We first met Luke and Josh from QLD!! We all got on the bus and headed out of NY.
We headed for Pennsylvania which was our first …
... stopping to get from the Capitol building, up to the Washington Monument, around the White House, then across to the Jefferson, Eisenhower, MLKJnr and Lincoln monuments. By this stage there was a strong police presence which was daunting at first, however I came to realise that because Obama was out and about for a lot for the different ceremonies, they were just preparing the road blocks. One thing that astounded me was the use of marble in this place, there must be ...

We got up later than planned today - about 9am - as we were so wiped from our epic walking tour of D.C yesterday. We were a bit late for breakfast and found that most of it had been devoured by an enormous group of Portuguese school children, but managed to grab a muffin and some juice before we headed out to Arlington.
We retraced our steps from the other day and walked back to the Metro Centre stop and then spent around 20 minutes trying to figure ...
