Hotel RL Washington DC by Red Lion
Good for weekdays
Good location for walking to various places and for getting the metro. Not a good place to stay at the weekend if you want breakfast – lots of office buildings so nothing's open on Sundays!

Hotel RL Washington DC by Red Lion
The hotel is in a great location and the rooms are really comfy and spacious. I can't say enough about the staff, they were so helpful and friendly. They are an asset to the hotel. My only issue was that the AC wasn't working properly so we had to open the window which backed onto a very noisy environment.

Staff very friendly and helpful
Only problem was the early morning trash collection usually 3am if I stayed again would request a room at the front of the hotel

Very Good8.0
Great for family sightseeing trip
The kitchen was really convenient as we were all jetlagged and sometimes needed to eat at inconvenient times. However the frig was quite noisy. The staff were all very friendly and the proximity to places to eat and public transport more than made up for the lack of dining facilities in the hotel itself. We'd definitely stay there again.

No sleep - avoid
I did not sleep. The hotel backs onto a yard where there is a huge recycling bin. At 3.30 am every night I was woken by a truck emptying the metal recycling container full of empty bottles. Earplugs did not help.
