  • Don't listen to the bad reviews. This place has amazing service, beautiful rooms, a great bar, and it's very clean. Also must note that the elevators are all brand new. The only issue I will mention is that the beds are not comfortable at all and they make tons of noise when you move. Otherwise, it's a great place, comparable to the W and I would highly recommend it.
  • Location is conveniently located near great bars and right across from Union Station. Wait staff was accommodating. Beds were very comfortable, showers water pressure was great. The only complaint I had was the A/C in the room didn't seem to get cold enough, but that's not really a huge deal to me. And also the ice machine on our floor was empty, but again, not a huge deal. Would definitely stay here again.
  • We are staying for three nights and we got a fantastic rate in comparison to other hotels in the area. The guest services have been above average but nothing spectacular. While the Art and soul restaurant looks nice we have not eaten there yet.
  • I can say with confidence that I will never stay at the Liaison again. I have stayed in hotels for almost half the price that I had a much more enjoyable time in. There was no refrigerator or microwave in my room, and the room wasn't nearly as nice as the pictures showed. There were cracks in the lampshades and a few of the lights didn't even work. On top of that, I felt like they were trying their best to nickel and dime me the entire time. Hotel guests can look forward to paying $48 per night to park in their parking garage as well as a $15 per day fee to access the WiFi on top of the overpriced nightly rate on a hotel room.
  • Only went in the lobby but it was beautiful, comfortable and a great environment. The location is extremely close to the Capital Building (5 minute walk) and the National Mall (8 minute walk). The lobby bar also looked very nice!
