Critic Reviews

USA Today


Considered a 'cityscape hotel' for its close proximity to D.C.'s major attractions, the Liaison Capitol Hill offers modern facilities and complimentary experience kits



If the city's most stately buildings weren't steps away, you could easily think you had checked into a sleek Manhattan hotel, with a trendy buzz and guest rooms defined by modern chic.


Though the immediate neighborhood lacks a wide variety of dining, The Liaison has done its best to remedy the problem with its own spotlight eatery, Art and Soul by the two-time James Beard Award-winning chef Art Smith (perhaps better known as Oprah's former personal chef).

Travel + Leisure


Mohair headboards and serpentine-shaped chaise lounges enliven the 343 guest rooms, while a monochromatic color scheme throughout the hotel backdrops the contemporary art of Randy Slack.
