OK! Let's face it. This place could be much better with a bit of effort - talking about general aspect here. The bright is that this Inn is very well located, with a lot to do within reachable (walking) distances - special mention for the White House. We got lucky as well cause the gentleman at the front desk gave...

The person behind the counter was very helpful and the hotel was very well presented with alot of character. From the pet cat to the painting in the hallway near my room. Would definitely come back again.

I booked this hotel because of the price and the location. Both of these aspects are great! However, if you are expecting a 5 star quality then do not book this hotel.

I booked on Booking.com for one night due to location of my business while in DC. I did know it was a no cancellation policy but had solidified my business meetings so felt comfortable with that.

It is indeed an old building but everything is clean. The staff are really helpful and kind. It is not a luxury hotel but a nice and comfortable place to stay. Very well connected with buses and metro, and the surroundings are nice and safe. Nearby The U street area. I recommend it!

As said in other reviews, the Windsor Inn is a older building and certainly has some wear and tear, some old water damage, and some work could be done to make it perfect. However, my room was spotlessly clean and the bathroom was updated. The furnishings have an antique feel to them. I like the decor.. It fits the age...

Many stairs! Hotel is old and has seen better days. Had to lug suitcases up many stairs, outside and in. I bolted and went to another place due to a housekeeping issue. (Yikes) Neighborhood is good. Bus transportation. Restaurants.
