Historic feel

Personal attention was great and the hotel is beautiful with old world look and feel. Very clean. Only problem was with the air condition. Most of the time it did not work so it was very warm at a warm time of year. No mention of it from staff or offer to discount.

Excellent Stay

I heard some reviews about the construction noise AFTER I booked and I immediately bought earplugs because I was adamant about not letting some noise ruin my stay. Fortunately the staff was kind enough to put us in a room away from the main street. Although there wasn't a view, I was in blissful silence for 4 straight nights. Wonderful! Location of the hotel is superb, just a 15 minute walk to the National Mall and plenty of opportunities to just hail a cab if you aren't up for walking. The staff (May and Cuong) you are what made our trip fantastic, Can't thank you enough!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a refrigerator in the room, so we stocked up on grocery items at the Safeway on L Street. Only time we ate out was dinners at the hotel (which is phenomenal, try the tenderloin or the 3 course sampler).

Home fron home

The Henley Park is a great friendly hotel. It has that English country house feel and even does afternoon teas. Great location only 25 mins walk from all the monuments/museums. Great staff with a lovely bar serving affordable bar snacks. Did not use the restaurant. Would definitely recommend and stay at this hotel again.

Head to the Chinatown/Downtown area at night to eat as the restaurants near the monuments etc. are very pricey.

Henley Park - nice boutique hotel

The great location and very helpful staff are two main reasons to stay at this small, somewhat boutique hotel. The restaurant food is adequate, not great, but the service is excellent. The rooms are small, but the space is well utilized.

Good spot for a quick stay

We were in town for just a night to catch a concert and were happy with our stay, although we spent very little time at the hotel. Staff was pleasant enough and location was excellent. Close enough to walk to the National Mall, but far enough away to avoid throngs of tourists. The room was a bit dated, carpeting looked old, but it was clean and good enough for the time we were there. Not sure I would plan for a long stay at this hotel. Loved the historic aspect and that the windows could be opened to let in some fresh air. Be prepared for street/construction noise.

Wonderful downtown hotel

This place was great! Very charming, comfortable, clean, luxurious. The room was surprisingly large. The only negatives were the construction across the street. It was pretty loud but I loved the room so much that I didn't care, and parking. There is only street parking in the area and it is metered until 10PM and free on Sunday. There is valet but that is $33. All in all you can't beat this for the location and the charm.
