Overview

Historic building with updated amenities
Small standard rooms

If you're looking for a centrally located property in Washington, D.C., that's not part of a chain, you should consider The Henley Park Hotel, according to recent visitors. Situated in downtown D.C., across the street from the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, this 96-room boutique outpost was once an apartment building frequented by senators, congressmen and other D.C. notables. Now, it's a member of the Historic Hotels of America. Though recent guests were pleased with the elegant and charming atmosphere, especially the stately architecture, they were less complimentary of the rooms — some visitors found the accommodations to be small and noisy. If you're a light sleeper, request a room toward the back of the hotel, away from the D.C. street traffic. Another tip from recent travelers? Spring for a suite, which offers a large sitting area complete with a bar. If you're content with a standard room, you'll still enjoy amenities like free Wi-Fi access, complimentary bottled water, Bath & Body Works toiletries and Frette linens. Past guests seemed more pleased with the on-site restaurant, The Tavern at the Henley Park, but also said that the hotel's central location makes it easy to walk to any of downtown D.C.'s top restaurants. The hotel also boasts its own bar and a parlor for enjoying afternoon tea. And if your legs aren't tired from all the sightseeing, you can get in a workout at the on-site fitness center.

A Tudor-style building adorned with gargoyles, this National Historic Trust property has the cozy feel of an English country house, and the atmosphere extends to charming rooms that were once the choice of senators and notables from Washington society.

Frommer's

The English-style hotel features luxurious lodgings, plus little bonuses, like afternoon tea, an intimate restaurant, a fun pub, and nearly nightly entertainment... so you need never leave the hotel.

Built in 1918, this well-preserved downtown property features charming old-world decor, a classy lounge bar, and a full-service restaurant. Most of Henley Park’s 96 rooms are on the small side and have only one bed -- making it a poor choice for families.
