Hotel Lombardy

Rated 8.8 in 1570 reviews. 140 rooms.


Located in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood of Washington DC, the Hotel Lombardy lies in an area named for the misty marshes that once lined the Potomac riverfront. The federal government first broke ground here in 1800, and during the 19th century, Foggy Bottom was a working-class neighborhood that attracted many of the nation's early immigrants and laborers.

Originally built around 1926, as an ornate private residence, the Hotel Lombardy has long been an alluring Washington DC area hotel. Here on Pennsylvania Avenue, the building bore witness to the sometimes tumultuous, but always eventful, world of Washington D.C. Surviving such watershed moments as the Great Depression and World War II, the Hotel Lombardy was renovated and transformed into a hotel in the late 1970's. Our downtown hotel's beautifully preserved red-brick and limestone faÇade - as well as our European and Oriental art and relics -- point toward a spectacular history. But our modern features and amenities make us a truly unique DC Pennsylvania Avenue hotel.

Located on world-famous Pennsylvania Avenue, 400 metres from the Foggy Bottom–GWU Metro station, Hotel Lombardy offers gourmet on-site dining and rooms with original artwork and free WiFi.

Showcasing classic 1920s décor, the guest rooms at Hotel Lombardy include a fully stocked minibar. Guests can watch cable TV or work at the spacious desk.

The Venetian Room Bar and Lounge is part of the Lombardy and offers a wide selection of wines and cocktails. The European bistro-style Café Lombardy is located in the lobby and serves gourmet meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The on-site gym boasts floor-to-ceiling mirrors and cardio machines with personal TVs. In-room spa services are available.

The JFK Center for Performing Arts is 900 metres from the historic Hotel Lombardy. The Lincoln Memorial is 1.4 km away, while the Verizon Center arena is 2.2 km from the Lombardy.
