We were delighted with this hotel! Our room was very nice, quite comfortable, and larger than I had expected (we had two double beds.) There were some extra sitting areas and a kitchen sink and refrigerator with a well stocked mini-bar. The hotel is pretty and is in a perfect location -- within a couple of blocks of two different metro stations. It is right in the middle of George Washington University and a well patrolled, very safe area. The Hotel Lombardy is within easy walking distance of the West Mall area where all the monuments and war memorials are. One day I walked to the White House and the East Mall area, but after that I took the metro. There are numerous places to eat right in the neighborhood and the Cafe Lombardy itself is wonderful. We ate several breakfasts and dinners there, and the food was delicious. Hotel and restaurant personnel were all very pleasant and accommodating, and we felt well taken care of. There is a safe in the room to store valuables. I can't think of anything negative to say unless it is that the bathroom light did not always want to turn on, but someone came and worked on it and it seemed to do OK after that. We stayed eight nights, and I never wished I were staying elsewhere. If I am lucky enough to make another trip to Washington, D.C., I will certainly plan to stay in this hotel again.
