  • great convenient location. decent rooms with fancy light fixtures, but no frills. strange lack of mini-fridge. noisy rooms that are slightly dirty around the edges. booked a room with a king bed and got 2 queen beds, despite asking for this to be fixed.... so service was iffy. unavoidable resort fees :(
  • It was a good stay. Rooms are clean and quiet. Well maintained. Had a few minor issues like dead battery in safe and no regular coffee but they were all resolved quickly. Staff is friendly and professional. Kudos to HSK/Merci.
  • We have been doing Valentine Days weekend here for the last several years and I am constantly impressed with the continuity of the staff. With the exception of the front desk and managers I see the same faces year after year. The bellhops, valets, restaurant staff etc.have not changed which is truly amazing. On top of it the fact that bellhops etc remember us after only a single weekend once a year is testament to their professionalism. All the amenities here are top notch, though I find the menu in the restaurant doesn't change very much.
  • The Liaison was an absolutely amazing experience. The hotel employees were very accommodating and the grounds were clean. The staff there have energy and life, it's just not a regular job to them. It's a must stay hotel when visiting DC. Definitely will return.
  • The Liason is a great hotel to stay at. Rooms are well kept, spacious, and have trendy design elements. Also the location is perfect. 5 minute walk from the Capitol Building and Union station. About 20 minute walk to the Smithsonian Museums. Parking is the only thing that sucks.
