. It is located on a quiet street but right near Connecticut avenue and the buzz of Dupont Circle. It has a boutique hotel flavor with well appointed rooms.A comfortable place in a great location
Id return to the Normandy Hotel.
Travelers tip on dining
There are excellent restaurants withinn a ten minute walk either up or down Conneticut Avenue. Our standard bedroom was clean and adequate for our needs. The hotel is comforably and tastefully furnished. The front desk receptionists were always pleasannt and helpful.Great Small Hotel in Washington, DC
The Normandy is a delightful small hotel somewhat off the beaten track in Washington, DC.
. Apparently the management is still working on finishing up some major renovations, and I would assume that vending machines and the like are on the list, but if you want something to drink/munch on at the end of the day it is BYO! Not only would I recommend this place, but BOTH my parents said they would stay there again. There are coffee machines in every room and they serve a small selection of breakfast items in the lobby each morning, but after that the only option was a can of warm Diet Coke that they had stashed at the front desk., the 5% modern amenity that was missing) is that they dont have a restaurant on site and the vending machines dont currently work.e.) When I went to pick them up my mom said the room had a cute European feel (her way of saying that it was not a palatial sized room), my dad just said it was FINE and then turned to me and told me I did a great job finding them a place! The ONLY down side (i.food and atmosphere; mom loves any restaurant where you can see and be seen; definitely a case of opposites attract... BOTH my parents thought this hotel was lovely -- an impressive feat since they have very different tastes (ex: dad loves Waffle House. My 1 BR apartment (like most in DC) is too small to play hostess in -- well, I guess I should say that it is too small to host family in and still be speaking to them when they leave.European-feeling hideaway inside DC with 95% of the modern amenities
I booked this hotel room for my parents who decided at the last minute to come to DC and visit me for the weekend.
But this place is an unmatched $$ value for DC!. Free wireless - dont you hate paying $1295 a day for it at the Marriot? Only downsides for some - my room was cozy but not large and the hotel is a good healthy walk from the Metro. Friendly receptionist, spotlessly clean room, wonderful European style decor.
I hate chain hotels and this one is one of the better alternative hotels i have stayed at.Great funky place to stay.
. I travel a lot, and will never forget my stay at this property.Fabulous, Historic Hotel with Updated Rooms!
The Normandy is located in an unforgettable, elegant neighborhood, and is a beautifully updated and secure hotel.
. -People can walk to many restaurants. -They have parking at their basement. -The curtains were able to be closed completely. -There were not only a shampoo but a hair conditioner in the bathroom.especially a TV was wonderfull... -The room had moden equipments. -Staffs were friendly and kindly.List of recommendations
I enumerate recommendations.
I would use again for sure. Nothing negative to say.Normandy Hotel DC
. This stop is closer to the hotel and the walk is down hill instead of up hill from the Dupont Circle stop.
Travelers tip on local attractions
If you take the Metro, take the red line and get off at the Woodley Park stop. It is located just off Connecticut Ave, south of the Woodley Park metro and an easy walk to the shops and restaurants of Dupont Circle.Nice Boutique Hotel near Dupont Circle
If you want a nice hotel near Dupont Circle then this is a good choice.
. i would definitely stay here again. it was a short walk from the metro in dupont and had plenty of restaurants nearby.c.Very nice hotel
this was a very cute, nice hotel in a great part of washington d.
. Couldnt ask for a better stay. Very clean, nice room.
No problems at all.Excellent.
. And they have some nice surprises - like a night-light under the bathroom sink that comes on when you enter the room - a nice feature in the middle of the night. They have all of the amenities of a larger, much-more-expesnsive hotel at a great price.Nice, quaint, hotel - great value for the money!
This hotel is a small, European-style hotel, with small but comfortable rooms.
. Very friendly people, and good value. This was not an issue on a leisure trip such as mine, but could be a problem if the traveler has suits or more formal clothes. Aside from the standard folding suitcase rack, there are no dresser drawers, the closet is tiny and half taken up by a room safe. Only downside is the lack of storage space. Hotel is newly appointed with luxurious bed, TV and bathroom.Small boutique feel, in great location
Very nice hotel conveniently located within about 10 minutes walk from Metro, restaurants, and night life.
. If you do not mind walking a bit this is your place.Nice Hotel
This is a very nice hotel but is not closely located to a Metro stop.
. It is a very cozy and quaint place to stay in the DC area, plus the location of Dupont Circle made it all the more fun!
Travelers tip for business travelers
The room is about the size of your master bedroom, but is very comfortable.Loved the Normandy!
This hotel has a great european feel to it with all the modern ammenities! It was great to have an Espresso in the morning made right in the room! It was also great to have a flat screen TV with a DVD player and free internet access! The continental breakfast served in a parlor atmosphere was very comfortable and relaxing for a start to your day.
Travelers tip for business travelers
This and the Churchill are close to the Hilton.Great location, good room
Nice location, clean & comfortable room.
loved it!.Great find
all new amenities, comfy and stylish, en suite espresso bar.
We enjoyed the hotel, location and very nice employees.
Highly recommend this place!. Very convenient location as well - 5 minute walk to 2 metro stops. It doesnt have all the amenities that a full-service hotel does, but does have free internet and complimentary computer in the lobby. Recently remodeled and in great shape. Convenient, inexpensive and nicely done - more like a B&B than a "hotel".Great find near in Dupont Circle
I would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to DC.
. A nice room, nevertheless.?. Since it had no instructions, was I supposed to use it, or just view it? Should there have been coffee, or milk, or powder, etc. Not being an espresso-kind-of-guy, I find such machines a fascinating mystery. My only other comment is about the espresso machine (with retail information) in the room. The room was comfortable, the window could open for fresh air, staff was pleasant and the breakfast room was sedate.Nice Room in Expensive Area
The Normandy lies between DuPont Circle and Adams-Morgan, and is one of the few hotels available that is not extremely high-priced.
Thi is a good value and convenient toareas of interest.
Travelers tip on local attractions
Easy to get to the subway which can take you anywhere in DC. I would definitely book there again. The rooms are small but luxurious. It is near the business of Dupont Circle yet tucked away in a quiet street just outside of the circle.I would definitely rebook here
The place was wonderful.
. If you are used to larger US hotels and there are more than 2 of you, it may be a problem. If you find this charming, you will be fine. Everything was very updated, including the small, but modernized bathroom. The hotel itself reminded me of a small European hotel, including the continental breakfast ($8) and the rooms are the smaller size of European hotels. When we were ready to check out, the elevator no longer worked, so my daughter and the front desk clerk had to hump our luggage down 6 flights of stairs. There are ice machines only on the 3rd and 6th floor and the 6th floor one did not work. The whole hotel has either heat or A/C, but not both, so even though it was a warm day, there was no A/C to turn on. The staff at the front desk was very nice, but there is limited service. The only parking available is at the nearby Marriott, so that could be an issue if you have a car, as it was hard to even unload with all the construction trucks taking up any available spots. The rooms seemed to be ready, but the noise and detours around construction were less than would be expected. When we arrived, the whole lobby and front of the hotel was under construction which would have been nice to know when we booked.Not ready for prime time
If you like the European hotel experience, this hotel will work for you--once they have it ready for prime time--not yet.
. Really not acceptable. The room was so small that the heater was sufficient overnight although there was nowhere to put it so I kept tripping over it. Finally after my 5th or 6th complaint, I specifically asked if they had a space-heater and they dug one out. I was never offered another room or anything. I complained several times to the management, including immediately after check-in about the heat. The sink was so large, there was no space for a counter so no where to put toiletries except on top of the toilet. The large shallow Kohler sink was installed such that water splashed all over the small bathroom when the faucet was on.) The LCD TV on the wall didnt get any channels. The lamps on the walls didnt work so there were floor lamps right in front of the nightstand (in a tiny room so it almost hung over the bed. The single serve coffee maker didnt work. The heat (in January!) was not working well and would have barely heated the room to 60F except that they covered it with a decorative wooden box so it didnt even heat to 60F.Pretty but not functional
The hotel room was very pretty with nice, modern decor but nothing worked.
. The shower and LCD TV were very nice. It was also in the closet which prohibited hanging of longer clothing items. The closet has a safe, however in the room I stayed in, the safe could easily be picked up and carried out of the room. The rooms are very small so much that it gets easy to trip over furniture and the closets are too small that full length items do not fit. I woke up to workers pounding and machines running.Not impressed
An upscale hotel in the middle of a remodel.
. Nevertheless it is a small but qualified hotel. But in the room there was no soap and no bath towels until I called and asked for them.Warm atmosphere
People were very friendly, hotel was clean and sweet.
