Dining

international lounge
The keynote of the international is the feeling of grown-up glamour and sophistication that reigned throughout the Kennedy years - the golden age of All-American-Style; full of promise and ambition. This is not Austin Powers or Warhol Pop. Think Babe Paley; think dressed up, crisp clothed jet-setters and kings of commerce enjoying a classic champagne cocktail, nibbling an elegant snack, while engaging in intense flirtation and conversation into the wee hours - after all one can always stay over.
No. 10 Thomas
No. 10 Thomas offers Contemporary American cuisine and the perfect ambience for any meal. Watch the "Early birds" at Logan Circle in the morning, sunbathers taking a dip in our pool after lunch, or the sunset over National City Christian Church in the evening. Sip a Glass of Champagne or enjoy a cocktail by candle light on our Poolside terrace and make a wish while counting the shooting stars over Washington D.C.

Excellent Accomodation

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, and it was a very relaxing stay. We arrived shortly after check in opened - and we were offered a Queen Room (which we booked) with a walk-in shower... we accepted and checked in with ease. The reception staff were friendly. Our room was located on the 5th floor at the end of the hall over looking the pool. The room was comfortable and well appointed. I've stayed in a lot of hotels in the last few years but this bed has definitely got to be one of the most comfortable! We kept the do not disturb sign on the door whenever we were in the room as the housekeepers start quite early and then come back again for a turn down service in the evening, so I would keep the door sign on if you don't want this. We flipped the sign over when we went out and the room was serviced while we were out on both days. Location is great, apart from a taxi to & from Union Station we actually walked everywhere we needed to go, Lincoln memorial, Smithsonians, Dupont Circle - even Georgetown! Washington is a great city for walking after all. We ate breakfast in the hotel one morning, continental which was good - cereal, juice, pastries and muffins. There was also a greater selection for a higher price and a menu for a-la-carte options. We ordered room service one of the evenings, which was very easy and tasty to boot. Also a courtesy call to check how the food was is also a great touch. Check out was simple and the friendly doormen called round a taxi - there seems to always be a couple of cabs waiting at the end of the driveway. Overall a very pleasant stay at a great hotel, lovely attention to detail that points to the fact that they know what they're doing!

Decent value

Good location, clean. Wireless internet included but basically worked only intermittently at best and VERY slow. Breakfast at hotel very pricey for what you get. If you don't need reliable internet - good value for location.

Great location, nice hotel

Great location and very useful to have parking on site. Parking was a little expensive but so convenient. The room was nice and the beds were very comfortable. We didn't have breakfast at the hotel and the pool was closed but overall great place to stay in DC.

Business Trip - Overall fine but a little noisy

We had two rooms for two nights. Overall I did really like this hotel - the location was excellent and our meetings were nearby. The lounge area was very cozy and staff service was actually a step above the other places I've stayed in DC. For example, we arrived at 10:45pm very hungry, and even thought they were about to close the kitchen the lounge staff happily took our order. Only complaint was that it was a bit noisy. The first night there was a very loud garbage truck outside that woke one of us at 6:00am. The second night room noise from next door was audible - TV and phone conversation. Not much to be done about that really - the person next door obviously had their volume up and was being quite loud, but it showed the rooms weren't highly soundproof.
