Travel Blogs from Washington DC
SATURDAY Christmas Day in Washington DC and when we awoke (quite late) and looked out our window we could little flurries of snow flakes drifting past the window!!!! Not quite the White Christmas we were searching for but it was actually snowflakes! After having some brekky we rugged up with our warmest gear and set out to see the sights, and as we …
Well today we awoke very late - about 8.45am - to a much warmer, but otherwise unchanged "grotty" unit, all feeling a little better after a good nights sleep but with Mumsie still adamant that she wasn't "spending Xmas in this dump!!!!!!" So after breakfast we headed off to the Eastern Market Metro station and went into the downtown part of …

I arrived in Washington, DC, early in the morning. About six months earlier I had only driven through the Capital Hill area following along highway I-95. But coming into the massive Union Station by bus is a whole other experience. I went outside and noticed how spread out the entire city really was. Having traveled to NYC many times I was use to the long drawn city blocks, but ...

There were barely any people walking around and not a lot of cars on the roads, there were also barely any shops and even fewer that were open for food. It was the total opposite to NY where everything was open and busy at all times. The city felt reserved an dignified. The contrast was really awesome to see!

Historical Traveler Reviews Homewood Suites Washington, DC Washington DC
Great hotel. Four adults and 1 child stayed in a suite. It was perfect for the group. Great location for seeing the sites, and eating. 3 blocks to the metro, or a short cab ride, $10 for the family. Staff was helpful, especially when dealing with them directly.
Hotel has free internet, but bring a cable since they charge for the cable. I asked nicely in person at night, and got a 12 inch cable for free.
Great value in Washington
Just returned from Washington. Our group of six stayed in the hotel comfortably. Enjoyed the breakfast with choices that pleased everyone.
Was surprised at the quality of the evening receptions - boneless chicken breast, beef barbeque, etc served with nice salad bar and vegetables. Our kids, some of whom are picky enjoyed the meals and it was a relaxing way to end a long day of walking. The hotel was very clean and the staff were very pleasant.
Great hotel for families
Just returned from a 5-night stay at the Homewood Suites in D.C. It's a great hotel for a family - very clean, spacious for D.C., and conveniently located for visiting monuments and museums. The hot breakfast buffet has enough variety to satisfy even the pickiest kids, and the evening manager's reception is an acceptable dinner if you're tired after a full day of sightseeing.
Excellent Family Hotel
Great, safe location. Helpful staff. Spacious suites for a family of five, nice complimentary breakfast and weekday complimentary lite suppers. Highly recommend this property for families wanting space and convenience to all of Washington's great sites!
Nobody Does It Better
Absolutely, bar none, the best hotel ever! Our theatre group travels all over the country and I must stay that our first time in the nation's capitol was an amazing one, thanks mostly to the Homewood Suites-Thomas Circle. The location is good. The amenites were wonderful. The service is, by far, the best we have EVER been treated to. In fact, all our reservations in the future, will be with Homewood Suites if there is one in the city we travel to. If not, we will definitely go with another Hilton Honors property. Major kudos to Homewood-Thomas Circle for making our stay the best it could possibly be!
The Only Place To Stay While in Washinton D.C.
We recently visited Washington D.C. We stayed at the Homewood Suites in Thomas Circle. I must say me and my husband were again, very impressed with the Homewood Suites hotel chain. Non-stop service with 100% satisfaction. Start the morning off with a free hot breakfast buffet with plenty to choose from. The Hotel is only 4 or 5 blocks from the subway station and walking distance to the White House. (Make sure to get an all day subway pass if your into the tourism thing!) Walk around and see the sights. Then come back for a refreshing light dinner for free! Depending on what season you go in, it still may be daylight outside to go back out and enjoy the city some more. We had a great time and would definetly come back and stay here.
Great deal at Homewood!
My family and I, (3 kids) really enjoyed this hotel. Plenty of room.
The kids liked that there were two tvs. The complimentary hot breakfast and the light dinner were perfect ways to start and end a day of touring around the city and helped save alot of money - since meals at all the tourist spots were hughly inflated. Lots of room, very clean, very friendly. All this leads to a great family vacation. One negative was no pool.
Step up from Residene Inn
Initially we stayed at the Residence Inn on Vermont (about one block from this hotel.) They proved to be majorly lame, so we went looking for another one. For less money per night, the Homewood Suites gives you a larger room, better service, a larger bed, two TVs, better breakfast and nicer accomidations. The staff is very friendly and willing to help.
I travel to Washington, DC every year on business. I have stayed at several different hotels over the years. Homewood Suites is definitely the best hotel I have stayed at in the $150 price range. The hotel lobby was decorated in mahogany wood accents. The large 2 bedroom rooms were immaculate and the hotel staff was top notch! The staff was definitely a breath of fresh air for a city which is not normally service oriented. A welcomed surprise was the guest washer/dryer and the complimentary full breakfast and dinner. McPherson Square Metro stop is a long 5 blocks away, but it was nice to have lunch at the many restaurants on the walk to the subway. If mid priced comfort is paramount, stay nowhere else.
