Positive Reviews

Convenient Washington location

The location of the District Hotel was a major plus point for many past visitors. With its central location in downtown Washington, the hotel is surrounded by a wide array of restaurants, shops, bars and attractions. Popular points of interest like the White House and National Geographic Museum are within 15 minutes from the hotel on foot.

Friendly front desk staff

Although there have been a fair share of comments on the contrary, the majority of previous guests were happy with the customer service provided by the hotel. The front desk staff is generally considered to be friendly and accommodating.

Rooms clean for the most part

While there have been a variety of complaints about the hygiene at the District Hotel, the general opinion is that the rooms are clean for the most part.

Negative Reviews

Small and distressed rooms

For a large number of past visitors, the condition of the rooms at the District Hotel has not been to an acceptable standard. Noisy and malfunctioning air conditioning units, uncomfortable beds and worn down furnishings are some of the problems that have been mentioned in the past.

Poor Wi-Fi range

Many guests have had an issue with the limited range of the Wi-Fi at the hotel, with it said that connecting to the wireless Internet is only possible in the lobby area of the building. Furthermore, the Wi-Fi is not regarded as being particularly fast.

No on-site parking

For past visitors that have traveled to the District Hotel in their own transport, the lack of on-site parking has been understandably problematic. To counteract this negative to an extent, the hotel is affiliated with a nearby public parking lot.
