The hotel is in a nice neighborhood, relatively quiet with lots of trees and quiet sidewalks. It is close by to many restaurants and also to some good sightseeing areas. The rooms are a bit old although they have been freshly painted and the furniture looks quaint. The heating/cooling was controlled by an ancient thermostat that still worked but it was impossible to see the setting on it. The windows looked like they were openable but I could not budge the pulls on the storm windows to open them. Not sure if they were just stuck or purposely disabled. Though I did not take part it looked like there was coffee and some pastries near the lobby for a free breakfast
I don't believe that it is three and half star Hotel. I'll never be there any more!
Hotel is in a beautiful and safe neighborhood. It is within walking distance of the Adam's Morgan neighborhood and a short cab ride from Georgetown. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is old and does not come with many frills, but it is clean and quaint. if you are looking for a safe place to stay that is located near many attractions, this hotel should serve your needs. The bed was not the most comfortable, but I still recommend this hotel for its value.
Family from out of town decided to come for the Christmas Tree lighting and my grandfather asked me to book this hotel for them. He and my grandmother had stayed before and were happy with the accommodations. We used the Metro to get to the ceremony and then afterwards we came back to the hotel and ordered a pizza. Their room was very spacious and clean and there was a small refrigerator for the leftovers. The next day we visited them again and we went for a walk around the neighborhood. I have never seen such beautiful homes. I could tell that a lot of the buildings were embassies because of the different flags. I liked the hotel too and I would bring my family there anytime.
We came to DC so our kids could learn more about our government and see the historical sites. We asked the desk clerk where to park and we were able to find parking easily in a large garage located about two blocks from the hotel. We could see DuPont Circle as we parked. We left the car there and used public transportation for the next two days. Our room was large enough for my girls to chase around with no problem. We had a HD TV in a large armoire and the beds were comfortable. Even though the hotel is old, the room seemed clean and the bathroom looked new. We plan to come back for a few days in the spring for the Cherry Blossoms.
This place is NOT close to Dupont. It looked cute from the outside but once we got inside we realized we made a mistake. Very old rooms, old beds with even older mattresses. Walls paper thin. Could hear people in the next room. Dirty heater and old lace curtains with old red carpet including stains. States non smoking but all the halls smelled like cigarettes. Pay a few more bucks and find a nicer place!!!
Deciding to try something different, I booked a room at the Windsor. The lack of parking didn't bother me since I thought I would easily find a spot in the residential neighborhood setting. I was wrong. Spent over 45 minutes, with three kids in the car, after a long day, trying to find a spot. Parked illegally and hoped the car would be there in the morning. The dorm room sized living area had a twin and double bed with little room to spare. The television was a 20 inch box set from the early 90s. The walls were paper thin and hearing the younger crowd in the next room could not be tuned out. The staff was average at best. This hotel had 4 of 5 smiling faces and I figured it would be a good change of pace. I would strongly suggest that anyone reading this spend a bit more and stay at a more established hotel, or look for a deal in Arlington or Rockville. This hotel is subpar at best.
While not fancy, the Windsor Park Hotel is located within walking distance of the very popular Dupont Circle nightlife.
We choose this hotel because it was reasonably priced, offered a free breakfast and was a half mile (10 minute walk) from the nearest Metro Station, Woodley Park-Zoo. It's not your typical Holiday Inn, but it offered everything that I needed, free breakfast, internet access, a clean room and bath. One nice touch was a small refrigerator in the room. I thought that the breakfast was lacking a little, I would have liked some cereal, but they did offer your typical muffins, bagels and croissants with tea, coffee and juice. My daughter thought that her bed was overly firm, but I was comfortable in mine. There weren't too many restaurants nearby but there were some. There were more restaurants and convenience stores near the Metro Stations and more located at the DuPont Station which is a tiny bit further than the Woodley Park station. The hotel was a short walk to Embassy Row, which was interesting and I felt safe walking there at night, although I wasn't out past midnight. The staff was helpful, keeping our bags after we had checked out since our flight didn't leave until the evening. All in all, I had a good experience and would definitely consider staying there again.
When I go to DC the most important feature of a hotel is proximity to the Metro. I am in town for a very limited time and have a really tight schedule and have to be sure I can access public transit conveniently. The Windsor was perfectly located.
This was a moderately priced hotel with a suites which was perfect for our family. The rooms were a bit small, and the building is kind of old, but its in a good part of town, an easy walk from a metro station and close to the zoo. Also, there are several good restaurants near the metro. Also, there was no reasonable place to park, but thats seems to be the case anywhere in DC near a metro station.
Last minute travel plans landed me here - got a great airline/hotel package deal (much better than separate purchases). I had stayed in a number of other hotels near Dupont Circle - all smaller, less modern and not as clean as this one!
In total, I can sum up the experience to OKAY. Location= pretty cool & is in the middle of all of the embassy houses so it was a nice little walk through a 'nieghborhood' that had lots of character. Room= hasn't been updated since the 80s/early 90s. it definitely looks like it could be your Grandma's house. no modern amenities or luxuries one would expect these days. Service= non-existent so don't bother. Recap= my best friend & I stayed there as a 'crash pad' before wandering out in the city & staying with friends. we literally were in & out in the matter of 6 hours so as long as you don't plan on being in the room & need a roof over your head, this will be just fine. just don't expect much & you won't get disappointed.
This hotel is a very decent choice for people who want to be in the Kalorama-Dupont Circle-Woodley Park area, but don't want to pay the rates that sleeker choices demand. Breakfast was meager and of poor quality, but there are many good breakfast choices in the neighborhood. The location can't be beat!
Pleasant hotel, quiet. Very good breakfast, helpful staff.
The hotel was not bad, especially for the price. It did not exceed expectations but there was not problem with it. The staff was friendly. The location is convenient, especially for taking the metro. We enjoyed our stay. The neighborhood is nice.
I stayed at the Windsor hotel with my boyfriend for the weekend. It was in a pretty good location right next to Adams Morgan and DuPont Circle, although it was a little far from the metro. The room seemed clean, but everything was kind of old. The rooms, the furniture, and the hotel itself is outdated. It wasn't a luxurious hotel, but it was relatively cheap. We basically got what we paid for.
My family of four (including two teen age daughters) stayed here in a room with two double beds in August 2010. This hotel was in a nice residential neighborhood within a 10 minute walk of the Dupont Circle metro station. The room and bathroom were small, the closet was huge. We were being tourists and we typically leave by 9 am and don't return until 10 pm so the room size was fine. It is not new and fancy but if you are looking for an inexpensive room in town this is the place.
Got the work done for me. It was snowing outside. A small room but with the very basics covered such as clean sheets, a hot shower, heater that works, cable on a small TV, a closet to hang the suits. Unplugging the alarm clock gave me an outlet for the laptop. Nice neighborhood, and useful front desk. You won't do much in this room, but for a quick overnight stay it'd do just fine.
Old but clean, friendly, neat, and very helpful. Would stay again for the same price.
My stay was brief at the Windsor. I agree with many of the previous reviewers that it is small and older. The night desk clerk was not very friendly but the morning gent was. I was surprised to see the continental breakfast; it hit the spot for someone in a hurry to get out and explore. The food was all carbs and not the freshest. The room was adequate but older and the bathroom very small. I read somewhere that it was a French school that served the French embassy right down the street. That is one of the benefits: the neighborhood. It is a beautiful quiet street that is convenient to the metro. I would stay again for the price that I paid. It was a good deal compared to other offerings.
The only business amenity is free wireless internet; but had to change rooms to get a signal. Desks are small or non-existant and do not have lamps or phones on them, much less anywhere near a power outlet. The bathrooms are small and shabby (though clean) and rooms dingy with very poor lighting. The place is clean, but nowhere near what I consider adequate. Also there are no coffee makers in the room and no restaurant so forget room service.
