To find the Churchill Embassy Row Hotel on Connecticut Avenue, look for the elegant, cream-coloured Beaux Arts building that could easily pass as one of the area's many opulent apartment complexes. That was the idea when the landmark opened in 1906 -- the owners wanted to exude “the restful quietude and exclusiveness of a private residence" (Historic Hotels of America).

The lobby is bedecked with chandeliers and plaster panelling, while rooms are simpler in traditional tones, but are noticeably larger than the city's average hotel room today. All come with coffee makers and small fridges. Upgrade to a Junior King Suite for a separate sitting and work area, plus floor-to-ceiling windows with city views.

The on-site Chartwell Grill & Lounge serves a full American buffet breakfast in the morning, accompanied by Starbucks coffee, and there are grab-and-go options for early-rising business travellers. Lunch and dinner are also on offer here, with steak, hamburgers, salad, pasta and more on the menu.

The hotel is on the north side of Dupont Circle, one of Washington DC’s most fashionable neighborhoods. There are streets and streets of trendy bars, gourmet bistros and art galleries to explore. The area's namesake park and metro station are a 15-minute walk down the road. To the west, Kalorama is a leafy district with many grand colonial mansions that house the world's ambassadors.

The hotel was fine. Nice low key. Room large, pleasant, updated. Nice staff. The problem was NOT this hotel but Travelzoo which botched the reservation by intended or unintended misrepresentation and now I must take my time to dispute the Churchbill credit card billing.
Other Comments
Travelzoo quoted a rate of $301.43 times three for the three nights. When we arrived, we indicated we would have the leave after two nights and notified Travelzoo. At the hotel we found the rate was $370 a night for each of the first two nights, and a different rate the last night. Travelzoo and the hotel insisted on charging us the higher rate for the first two nights. The hotel asserted the rate was average while also indicating others had complained about Travelzoo. The Travelzoo booking at no time indicated it was a different rate per night or this was an average rate NOw, I must dispute the billing with the Hotel, which is caught in the middle. If Travelzoo had indicated "average rate" or shown the different rates per day at the time of booking, that might have affected my decision or I might have booked. At this point, I think Travelzoo is open to a class action suit by not accurately describing the rate as "average" and/or indicating what rate it is each day.
