Stroll the avenues of Capitol Hill, the largest historical neighborhood in Washington, D.C. In addition to its namesake, the United States' Capitol building, you'll also find the Folger Shakespeare Library, the world's largest collection of Shakespeare's printed work. At the Eastern Market, shop for antique clocks or fresh fruit, try the blueberry buckwheat pancakes, or head to one of the upscale restaurants for a steak meal. If you're visiting the Capitol, be sure to pre-book a tour. Coming by public transportation will save you the trouble of finding parking. A visit to Capitol Hill represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Washington DC itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

  • Not to be missed! And allow several hours for the visit (hours registration can be done online or on-site, there is plenty of availability) very friendly English-speaking tour. Do not forget to pass by the sight of the library of Congress.

  • Few things in life are free so grab this opportunity. You can reserve a tour online. I would highly recommend to do this so you can skip the line. Our family learned so much and the best part was it w...  read more »
  • Sinds the station 10 min walk away. Beautiful path through a park. The view of the Washington is especially nice monument on the Capitol.

  • Overall I enjoyed it. Great food and atmosphere. Pros: Food was stellar and the wait staff was on point, room was cozy, hostess was as happy about us being there as I was. Cons: Two of the elevators were out of order, I wasn't allowed to vape in my room and was told the reason why was that it smelled (because the cheap knockoff perfume some guests used didn't?), and I felt as though when I did thank anyone that that "wasn't done." Overall great experience,though.
  • Beautiful room, gorgeous lobby, and perfect location. It was a great stay and the room wasnt pricey at all for 4 guests. The pool was beautiful as well but the drinks were ridiculously over priced and the elevators were broken. Other than that it was a great stay. I would recommend the hotel.
  • Rooms weren't available for over 2 hours but was told that there was a possible $50 charge for late checkout. $50 late checkout shouldn't even be uttered when you have guests waiting 2 1/2 hours for a room. The rooftop reservation is over priced and comes with no table service, a standard for rooftop reservations in DC. It took 20 mins to find management to set up my reservation. No one knew who to contact about my reservation but one person. Other than that person, everyone looked at me like I was crazy as if my brown face couldn't afford to reserve a cabana, especially the pool attendant. I literally was told to go back down to the front desk instead of someone calling for me. I had to call myself. When I did call, the front desk told me to go to Eventbrite. I already had a reservation. Management needs to go through customer service training with staff, not just to speak kind words but in practice and action.
  • Excellent location close to capital hill and all the museums. Very nice hotel staff and rooms. However, elevators out of service and very expensive parking. We were also charged $22 for a red bull vodka on the rooftop bar without being notified of the outrageous price. Hotel was nice but do not use the rooftop bar for drinking. Go to one of the many close bars nearby that offer the same thing for $7.
  • I loved everything about the Liaison! We came in on the same day and booked through Priceline. I was very worried we were going to get the worst room in the place. WRONG! It was very nice and the staff was amazing. They helped with anything we needed. But we had to remember we were not the only guest in the building. Make sure you have towels if traveling with kids. We ended up booking another night. I am picky when it comes to hotels. This one hit a home-run. Parking is crazy. But that is everywhere there. We finally got a place on the street in front. So no charges there, thanks to the bellman. He was so kind(I drove a suburban). I have family that is going to stay in May 2017. It was a great place and clean! I would give them a 10 if it was on here.
