The staff was very freindly, bed's and pillows were very comfortable, breakfast was delicious. Grear location in our Nation's Capital.
Microwave access would have been very convenient.
I liked the location, the staff was very friendly, and the complimentary water. We had issues with our air conditioning which we told the staff about but nothing was fixed and our room was muggy and damp.
The hotel staff was great and I liked that they had parking. The room was nice & location was great. Everything about the hotel was great. One of the reasons I liked it was because it was smoke-free however, the room smelt of smoke the last night we stayed and even again in the early morning before we checked out. Not the hotels fault, was just disappointing.
Most friendly staff I've ever encountered at a hotel.
Close to attractions Parking
Friendly staff, clean and attractive, excellent hotel for the price! Bar closes too early. Minor problems with accessories in room.
The hotel staff were excellent and very helpful with restaurant suggestions and transportation. The room smelled very bad; like a mixture of body odor, Old Spice, and onions. I left the window open all day and it didn't improve.
From the moment we stepped out of our rental car the hotel staff was friendly, courteous, and helpful. We had just come in to DC from two days of flying and driving and right away the hotel staff made us feel right at home. They carried our bags, helped us with transportation in DC by pointing us in the right direction, and even gave us apples on our way out for the day. We had never been to DC and have 2 small children and did all the sight seeing we could pack in for 2 days. The location of the hotel was great. One night the weather was great and we all enjoyed the walk through the city back and forth from the Washington Monument. It is quite the walk, so if you are not up for it we also took a cab and used Lyft in which every place only cost about 10.00 to get a ride to and from the hotel. I also feel compelled to mention that maybe it was the look on our faces when we stepped out of our car after the long traveling experince with 2 small kids, but whatever it was they upgraded our room to a balcony! I think her name was Elena that offered the upgrade, and it was very much appreciated!
Rooms were very clean. Beds were comfortable. Very nice outdoor pool with plenty of lounge chairs, an outdoor bar and poolside table for eating. Parking at the hotel was perfect. Bathroom was slightly small but very clean.
Interesting restaurants nearby
Easy access to Metro, White Hose, Mall, etc. IF you are a walker. Very welcoming,professional and responsive staff. They were happy to change rooms to 2 beds when my son flew in from CA. Great catering staff and food. Clean and comfortable. A little dated and can be very expensive. My on-line rate with tax etc. was a reasonable $180. When I tried to add 1 night, they wanted $479! Needless to say, we went somewhere else.
staff and cleanliness
Space in the lobby and common areas
Very helpful and friendly staff, lovely room, with a nice view of Washington.
The friendlyness of all the staff and general up keep of the hotel even with the work in place'
Rooms very comfortable and coffee machine in room much appreciated. Bit of a walk to the nearest tube station, however, it may have seemed longer becuase of the stiffling weather.
Helpful, friendly staff. I really like that it is a pet friendly hotel.
I liked the organization of front desk.
Everything, they were very good, since now i will use Hilton always, i really like that hotel need more elevator, i had to walk very long to my room
Nice environment, convenient to the subway, good living condition
space and design of rooms, beverages in the lobby difficult to locate the entrance upon arrival
Everything in the hotel was to an excellent standard At the time of booking, it was not made clear to me that there would be a 14-16% tax charge on top of the booking price - so it came as quite a surprise to me at the end of the stay
It was right downtown near the white house and monuments, so we could walk everywhere Everything closes down so it's hard to find a late night restaurant or pharmacy
Excellent location for much of downtown DC. Around Midnight my room filled with old cigarette smoke as someone began smoking in the stairwell. The air quality overall in my particular room was poor, requiring the windows to be opened as much as possible. This of course made it difficult to sleep as the city sounds in DC near The White House are loud and replete with sirens 24/seven. Normally, one might cover one's ears to have silence. However, at this hotel the pillows are the size for small children.
Staff very helpfil. Close to DC metro and attraction
The hotel was very nice and extremely close to all the sites (just blocks from the White House). The room, service, and location were far above what I would expect for the price. Would stay here again and will recommend to anyone visiting the DC area.
Friendly, attentive staff. Clean rooms and facilities. Location is within walking distance of many places to eat and a short ride from the national mall. Would stay again. Very cold lobby/restaurant/bar area. Thermostat in room kept malfunctioning. The maintenance guy brought us a space heater at one point. Requested shampoo at one point and three different staff people delivered some three separate times. Very friendly, but obviously some lack of communication. Staff was very apologetic about the thermostat and offered us a variety of comps.
Proximity to WH
Location Room wasn't clean. Carpet smelt like cigarette. They charged me for parking that I did not use.
The location and comfort here is great! Overall very good value!! The room was a little tight. Room had empty box of tissues, could of been a bit cleaner, dust.
Friendly helpful staff in downtown DC. The air conditioning in the room wasn't very good. It didn't feel like it dropped below 70F while set to 60F in November.
I did not like the fact I had to pay valet for parking or find my own. I feel if I m paying for the comfort of staying out of town then that is something that should be included.
Location, convenience Rooms are dated, small and dark
Well maintained older hotel convenient to restaurants and tourist attractions. Nice linens and towels. Great cocktail lounge. Friendly and welcoming service. Street noise; will bring earplugs next time.
The staff was warm and welcoming from the moment I stepped through the door with my 12 year old. I detest the hold hotels put on your credit card and don't release for days and was told I could pay the $50 incidental in cash (which I received back at checkout before the housekeeper had even cleaned the room). The room was indeed small with only 1 bed which would have been a problem if I hadn't been traveling with family. However, it was clean, along with the bathroom. I did whack my elbow against the wall as I was showering as the stall was a bit cramped. We received great instructions on how to make our way to the White House and monuments - - all within walking distance. We finished our running around a bit early so we took advantage of the 2nd floor lounge for about a half hour before heading back to Union Station. There was an industrial coffee/espresso/cappuccino maker, tea bags, newspapers, a big screen tv set to CNN, a charging station, computers etc. The rooms are too small for friends to convene comfortably so the lounge is a nice spot. Convenience: A block away from the Circulator, a block away from the Farragut North and Farragut West station (it is actually on top of the Farragut West station, however, the entrance is closed so it's necessary to walk to the other side a block down). The complimentary bottled water saved us some money and we surely took advantage. The shower was uncomfortably small for a tall lanky person like me. Whacking my elbow against the wall isn't something I expect to happen in a hotel (usually hotel bathrooms are more comfy than my micro bathroom at home in NYC). Also, the room did not have a mini fridge which would have been nice for our leftovers. The hotel is downtown so the area at night is sparse (still feels safe though). You'll need to take a little walk to find some good breakfast if you set out early on a weekend because the nearby places are either never open on the weekends or only open closer to 9 am.
We were in DC to visit our son at GWH. Clean and efficient. Perfect location to the occasion. The bed could have been positioned 90° to the 8' room width.
The location for downtown dc couldn't be better, and staff was excellent and very helpful Room was small but for the price value of everything else it didn't matter
Staff and free snacks were great. Nothing
This is a great hotel, simple and convenient. The rooms are small, but quiet and the location is perfect. Right next to the metro and near the White House and mall. A little small... but otherwise great.
food and service was good My husband and i were given an end corner room 302 that was way to small and gave a confined effect. We spent as much time out of the room as possible. Parking was also difficult due to lack of easy access to our vehicle asit was in an underground garrage.
The location 24 hr coffee station clean rooms Small room configured & supplied for the single business traveler. One bath towel 4 the family.
We went to DC to celebrate my husband's birthday for a long weekend. We looked for a long time online and a lot of the offering was overpriced for the amenities available. The Club Quarters was a great find!!!! The staff was very helpful throughout our stay. There is an espresso bar on the 2nd floor!! We were a few blocks from all the greatest attractions, walked to every site. Never had to take a cab or the Metro. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and will come back. We found a gem in D.C. and will be recommending it to our family and friends.
Location Hidden charges. $58 a night to park. Nowhere did I see that when I booked the trip. $8 for a draft beer that should be $3, I get a call from security in the evening waking me up, stating that the policy is to call if the do not disturb sign is out. The do not disturb sign was out, I didn't want to be disturbed. Couldn't go back to sleep. I'm a small business owner, if I treated my customers that way, I would be out of business. I will never give that hotel a dime again.
Very nice amenities and the shower was great! I booked my stay two month prior for a King Bed for one night. When I got there, they said they were sold out of King Bed's and all they had were two doubles. Not the biggest deal, but what is the point of booking a King in advance if that is not what is available? Also, our room did have a musty smell to it when we first got it. After running the air for a bit, it went away.
The breakfast was very overpriced!!!
That staff was very helpful and friendly. Also, the location was great. Very close to the Capitol building. We upgraded to a buffet breakfast, which was lacking and the hot food was cold. Not a good value at $25/ person, but at a hotel, I understand the price, but if the food is cold, then it was a waste of money.
Quiet even though we were on lower floor and overlooked front of building. Great location. Restaurant (breakfast) food just ok.
Internet, parking, tv hdmi not working, deceiving "city view"
Clean sheets, very comfortable bedding, clean showers and floors. Great location with respect to the national mall. Gym is great. Would definitely recommend. Nothing.
Excellent Capitol Hill location. Comfortable base for young children on their first tour of the Capital.
We upgraded at check-in for an extra $50 which doubled the space. The location is excellent as it's walking distance to several sites. The fitness center is excellent and is included in the price of the room. Lack of parking requires you to valet for $56 a day. If you are somebody that needs a great view you won't find it here.
Walking to distance to good lunch and dinner choices Hotel lobby shop was typical "airport prices" for anything you'd want, making You feel like a fool if you didn't to walk across the street and buy a snack or coffee at 1/3 price.
Spacious room, quiet, clean and well-appointed.
The room was nice until we looked out the window and found we had a great view of the roof... (sarcasm) Valet constantly begging for tips. Being from Vegas I tip almost excessively however if someone begs for it or nearly has his hand out the entire time it is not coming. It's called a gratuity for a reason. Then when delivering the vehicle no opening the trunk, and doesn't return the seat to where they found it or at least close. Not much effort in valet.
Close proximty to city center, metro access through lobby. Nothing
Location was excellent. The hotel is really nice and the price we got could not be beat.
Lots of foodie options and gourmet coffee within a five minute walk. Close to subway. Acceptably clean. Clearly some deferred maintenance in the guest room bathroom.
The location was great and the rooms were updated. To big. Staff was not very friendly.
Everything was very good but the cost was high for a room. I could have been as comfortable at a less expensive hotel Cost
It was clean The parking very expensive
Great accommodations perfect for Travel Show we were attending. Loved the location--convenient to many restaurants and sites of the city.
I like that I was created with champagne and the staff were very friendly!
The room was very clean, the price was reasonable for downtown DC. Went to get away and attend a Wizards game, and the location is perfect for attending events at Verizon. Would absolutely stay again. Pool water was cold.
Clean room Quiet Friendly Staff Great location Great price Nothing!
Location, location, location Helpful staff Very outdated Raggedy carpet Stench in hallway Noise from plumbing in next room
The Grand Hyatt is our favorite hotel. They have everything from good food to gift shops to a pool. I would highly recommend it! The room service options were slightly limited
lovely public areas. friendly helpful staff. Very nice meals in the restaurant liked very much but would have appreciated a little milk for tea.
wonderful & very professional staff having to pay for the workout room & expensive parking!
The entry to the hotel and knowledgeable staff. Floor I stayed on smelled bad. Shower didn't work properly.
The hotel was in easy access to the metro , trolley bus tour; and taxi cabs were on standby. There is regular access to Dulles airport by way of shuttle bus and taxi .
Beautiful hotel, nice comfortable rooms, excellent location, outdoor pool still open during last week of October Impossible to be served drinks on the terrace outside the restaurant even though it was warm and sunny. Bar staff not allowed to sell me drinks for the whole party of 3 (presumably linked to liquor laws) to take to the terrace. This is highly unusual for a hotel of this category.
Staff was extremely friendly and helpful! Located close to underground Metro stop that made it very easy to get around. I would suggest providing free in-room wifi for free to keep business travelers wanting to return for ease and amenity.
Reduced holiday/weekend price.
the ambiance decor needed updating
The sheets were clean, there was no noise from the room next door, the shower worked nicely, and there was free coffee and tea. 1. My room was at the end of the hall, so there was a constant slamming of the door that the housekeeping staff used. 2. While there appeared to be soundproofing between rooms, there were gaps around the door frame and all of the noise in the hallway came in, as did the light; the feeling of privacy was diminished. 3. The elevators were inadequate to the traffic. I ended up walking up to the 7th floor!
Feel of the hotel was comfortable but very beautiful. Decor was luxurious and tastefully done. There was no indoor pool or spa.
Very clean, quiet and accommodating.
Nice lobby, courteous staff, comfortable bed. Tiny gym, mold in the bathroom grout, room amenities were average, surprising amount of wear and tear in our room for a hotel in this category.
Location is ideal for seeing the museums and monuments. Lobby and restaurant staff are warm and welcoming. If you forget to tip housekeeping each morning, don't expect clean towels.
The Quite and the comfort and access to shops No, It was very pleasure to stau in Dupont hotel and I will come back
Good value for money, close to Georgetown and metro Noisy aircon
The clean, modern design of the facilities and the room. The room was really hot at night and we couldn't open the windows.
A wonderful hotel with really nice rooms. Absolutely close to the metro stop. Very friendly and helpful staff.
Location A faulty hairdrier
Love the location, decor, bar and fantastic rooms. N/A
fabulous concierge. Terrific and easy location
Big beds, room actually turned out to be what was pictured, free internet, door/parking staff and maids all very courteous, no loud or rowdy guests or noise, plenty of space in the room, big tile shower, big flat tv, allowed us to check into room and park super early without question or fee, great location on DuPont circle for walking to destinations, restaurants and people watching. The toilet is basically beside the bed behind a glass door and there is no fan, pick any corner of the room you are in right now then imagine your romantic partner going to the bathroom right in front of you in that corner for a better idea of this mutually embarrassing set up, the shower 'door' is a two foot wide sheet of glass beside the toilet, everything gets soaked when you shower, the a/c is either cold or hot, heat is very musty smelling, we ran a/c entire time to avoid musty heat smell, it never turns off, wi-fi went out first day had to use 3 ft cord for remainder of stay, a small fridge or microwave would have been nice, you can't keep food/drinks cold or reheat leftovers, makes me sick to eat out every meal.
Overall this hotel provides top-notch service and is conveniently located in the beautiful Dupont Circle/Embassy Row area. The rooms are upscale, comfortable and nicely decorated. The bathroom design lacks privacy (frosted glass walls) and the window treatments (plantation shutters) are not room-darkening enough for anyone wishing to sleep in beyond sunrise.
was a new, clean, modern hotel in an excellent location - easily accessible by car, public transport and walking distance from many great restaurants and breakfast cafes. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Although we had read the terms and conditions in advance and notified of our requirement for an extra bed for a child, this was not arranged for and required some negotiating with the staff before this was taken care of. We ended up in a room that was spacious, but quite loud as the hotel's air conditioning was right next to our room. Some of the cost information on the Booking.com website did not correspond to reality, e.g. parking or cost for extra bed.
I received a complimentary upgrade which was fabulous.
BEDBUGS. I had to launder everything and throw away my luggage. very annoyed. have stayed here before but will not be going back.
The location is perfect for a family trip to visit Washington D.C. The staff was very helpful in directing us to various sites and helping us navigate the city. Our billing was not correct and it still isn't corrected. I have made two phone calls to the hotel to fix it and still have not had a return call. I will make another call today and hope to hear from them.
State Plaza provides nice, basic business-type lodging with good service.
A great location within walking distance of the State Dept., where I was attending a conference. Staff was helpful. Renovated room in the north tower was beautiful. Spacious, super clean, full kitchen, new bathroom and carpeting. Comfy bed. CVS and a liquor store adjacent. Need to upgrade cable to HD service. No restaurants or cafes nearby--at least I couldn't find any.
Liked price, location, staff's friendliness & helpfulness, updated rooms, kitchen, breakfast.
the location, clean, good service good stay, did not havd a lot of time to go to the restaurant
Just a few blocks from the museums, white house, etc. Only 40 feet from a CVS. Rooms were nice and clean. My Only complaint was that when asked about parking they told me they have a Valet. Afterwards a friend told me he parked himself for free. Not sure if they changed their rules or it was just poor communication. Either way i paid like 35$ extra each night.
Staff was friendly. Gave upgrade to a giant suite when they were out of the room I'd booked since I had arrived late. The hotel was old and it was obvious that it was old.
location, comfort, friendly staff
The staff were helpful and nice and the location was convenient. The kitchen is a nice convenience, but not needed for a short stay. The carpet in the room was dirty. There is no fan or window in the washroom so steam from the shower stays in the room, this causes humidity and mold. I'm allergic to mold so this was very uncomfortable. The hotel has two towers, and only one common washroom with one stall located in the other tower. If you have a late flight out you can store your suit cases but no place to change. The toiletries were advertised as designer. It was bath and body brand. The washroom was dirty, hair in the tub. I don't recommend the Hotel for physically challenged guests as there are steep stairs up to the elevator from the lobby. I had to struggle with the suitcases up the stairs. Beware that the hotel charges if there are more than 2 occupants in the room. This was not disclosed at booking. They also charge for incidentals at check in. I found this Hotel to be Overpriced for what you get. I stayed at the Marriott down the street last year, I payed about the same and had a much nicer room, pool, etc.
Kitchen and dressing area... very unique! TV didn't work very well. The front desk didn't know all the routes and ways to get to the DULLES airport.
The hotel is very clean and well maintained. It is an old building with character. There didn't seem to be any dress code for the staff so I couldn't tell for sure who was working there or hanging out. Staff couldn't easily tell me where local restaurants were. I had to find them on my own. The air blowing into the room from the HVAC vent was loud. I would have expected this from a cheap hotel but I paid over $350 per night.
Got no parking and they charge 46 $ for car over night To much
Very warm and welcoming front desk staff. Great location. Well appointed rooms and spacious Nothing comes to mind.
Comfy beds, decent size room in the junior suite. Nice quality towels and linens. Staff was pretty rude when we came back from seeing monuments. Bar tender was very rude when I went to take a call from my sitter and acted as if I was running out on the tab and refused my drink when I returned for no reason. The manager, I assume was very rude when we came in laughing (mind you, it was a bday party and gathering of veterans) In serious need of vending machines or at least bottles of water. The night staff was nice enough to bring up a cup.
I loved the room and the cleanliness...the comfort of the bed..overall great... the fact that there was no tub mat in the bathroom. Tub very slippery. as a business traveler my flight was late and when I got to the hotel there was no restaurant or room service.. on my floor there were not even vending machines to purchase soft drinks..
the front desk staff was very helpful and courteous. The room was clean and spacious. The bathroom was wonderful.
Great location and accommodation . Personable staff. If I had to find a weakness it would be too very small elevators
The Churchill was a delightful respite for this harried traveller. The staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly, the decor very pleasing, the room quite comfortable . All in all, my stay - though short- was very pleasant. I have no complaints.
Spacious room located across the street from our conference The heat in the room was stuck on and the thermostat didn't do anything. Had to leave the windows open to be bearable in the room.
Great location. Great customer service.
Friendly, helpful staff; great location, spacious room, well appointed and comfy. Overall good pic! Room too hot, useless thermostat, too much light at night. Bring a sleep mask
Spacious rooms, very friendly staff, excellent location, comfortable bed. One elevator (of two) didn't work; the coffee was bad.
We were in a suite and it was spacious and nicely furnished. Most staff were nice. Great having a Starbucks in the lobby. Nice central location. The bathroom was small, especially the corner sink. There was no counter space. Front desk clerks were hit and miss. Some nice, some not. Concierge staff were great. The breakfast was OK, not great.
The staff Felt a bit hurried to finish our breakfast.
The staff were very friendly and the hotel was beautiful. We'd definitely stay here again!
Amaizing service with very friendly staff Beds and pillows were amaizing
The hotel is a beautiful place with excellent finishes. Everything was in great condition and high quality. The rooms were small, which in understandable given the location, but this was a double bed room so it seemed even smaller.
Location Horribly overpriced
Excellent service. I ask them if I could make my check in before 3 pm (the official hour) because I was going to arrive at 9 am, and they had my room ready for that hour.
The actual hotel was clean and updated, the staff was friendly and helpful. Overall the actual stay was great. Nice little happy hour offered at the bar. Valet parked my car for 1 night, and took it upon themselves to charge $50 to my credit card, plus a $17 convenience fee. No lot in the surrounding area exceeded $25 for overnight parking. I should have parked my own car. I feel that the hotel was nervy and rude to charge us double the going rate for parking - without notifying me. I felt taken advantage of, since we were already paying top dollar for a 1 night stay. The hotel was nice, but not that nice. I stay in DC all the time, but I may not return unless this problem is rectified.
Comfort of the room Lack of phone service or free wifi.
Customer service The sofa sleepers
I came down to ride my bike to all the museums and monuments. When I presented my claim ticket for my bike to the bellman my bike had been stolen. I spent 4 hours in the lobby filling out a police report
Location Maids Front desk staff on more than one occasion Very small rooms
Excellent location. Beautiful view of the Washington Monument from our room. Staff was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.
The location was great, good value for the room however parking was an additional $54/night. Try out Art and Soul restaurant, delicious! Parking. But in DC I guess it's standard...
The rooftop pool cannot be beat. It is a beautiful space with cabana and plenty of seating. The room was on the 10th floor making the pool and fitness center easily accessible. Within walking distance to the capital and the mall. Hidden fees, and outrageous parking price, poor attitudes of front desk staff, "free coffee" pretty pathetic, coffee maker in the room not ideal. We couldn't take personal food up to pool despite no signs saying so. I felt like a teenager being reprimanded for sneaking candy into a movie theater. Bar at pool does have food, but be prepared to pay high dollar for pretty average food, without a lot of options. Poor communication regarding hotel activities, woke up for yoga class early only to find it must have been canceled without anyone letting us know. Pool was closed at 5 pm, we weren't even allowed to put our feet in because there wasn't a lifeguard. Website clearly says pool open until 10. It overall was fine, nothing miserable, but some of these details led to a less then impressive stay.
The location was good. The decor was nice and what you would expect from a 4star hotel. They tried to charge us for umbrellas that were returned to the front desk. When I returned the umbrellas to the front desk, the lady was very rude for no reason. Two of the elevators were out of service and the other two seemed as if they would break soon. It was scary everytime getting into the elevator because it would shake and make a noise. Twice the door didn't close all the way completely, leaving a small crack, and the elevator would not move. I highly doubt I would stay here again because of the lady I dealt with that was rude and tried to charge me for umbrellas that were returned.
the room was perfect had to pay for parking internet and food I i didn't like the customer service the elevator was not working my room was floor 8 even though i tried to connect the internet and pay it did not work when i talked to to the reception did not help they asked me to bring my laptop and phone down stairs
Everything was nice. Great location. Fantastically comfortable bed. Slept like a baby Parking $48. My only complaint :(
Either the hotel or this booking service gave misleading info. Internet was listed along with TV, sofa, etc., as included. But then the hotel said internet was $14.95/day. They eventually agreed to not charge me for it.
lovely place...great location. close to everything..congenial staff they even came to our door and asked if we needed more towels! No Pay Per View movies..and dish has them!
- Great location. - Friendly staff. - Gym doesn't seem to be well maintained. - Noisy.
I liked the decor and unique style of the hotel. I checked in at night so when we arrived we were able to appreciate the dim lighting and music. There was a lot of activity going on over at the bar/restaurant. People seemed to be enjoying them selves. The room was nice and clean. I liked the products in the bathroom. The bed was comfy and the lighting was modern and unique. It took 20 minutes of standing in a very short line before I was checked in. There was a jug with fruit infused water for guests to enjoy. But there was also an overflowing trash can of plastic cups right next to it. There was only one person assisting customers. When I gave my name and info, the representative had a hard time. I showed her my reservation on my phone. She looked at it for at least 3 minutes and then told me that I need to call Kayak to get my confirmation#. I was confused and asked shouldn't she call them (since I stood in line for so long). Luckily I found what she missed on my reservation and she was able to check me in. Later that evening, we were given the number to a local restaurant that delivers. We ordered food. The next morning there is a receipt for a long distance call on the floor near the door. When I called the front desk about it, the rep said they would talk to their manager. When I checked out that day, I mentioned it and the representative at the desk dismissively said that her boss took care of it. No apology or friendly demeanor to spare I suppose. The carpet in the lobby needed vacuuming. It looked like the day after a party in the lobby.
The room was a little bit too much in regards to modern art deco. There was no two lamp that was the same. Parking cost $48 overnight,
We enjoyed our stay at the Washington court hotel after the liaison did not have a room for us. We arrived at the liaison at 12 am hoping to get into our room quickly and get some rest. We waited in line for at least 30 minutes to check in, as other guests appeared to be having issues with check in. After finally reaching the check in desk, we were told that the room we had reserved was not available. The only available room had no bed, just a pull out couch that could only sleep one person. This situation was the same for another 5-6 parties attempting to check in after us. We were given the option of staying at another hotel down the street and switching back to the liaison for the second night of our stay. We decided to cancel our liaison reservation and stay at the other hotel for both nights. The entire situation was handled in a very unprofessional manor, adding stress and confusion to what we hoped to be a relaxing weekend.
They didn't let us into our hotel room until very late in the day we arrived due to slow housekeeping service. Upon checkout, we realized we had forgotten a few items in the closet. I called the front desk to tell them of the issue and they said they would take care of it, but when I showed up a few hours later to grab my bags from the coat room and go to the airport, they had no record of me having called and couldn't locate our items left in the closet. One bellman went out of his way to help out and was able to find some but not all of our clothes.
no self-parking. valet parking only. when I tried to do valet parking, they didn't allow me to do it.
Location The staff (including management) did not respond adequately to their system being down during check in. Problems like that are expected but management did not issue an apology to all guests waiting in line for 30+ minutes and did not show the urgency to find an alternate way to check in all the guests affected by the hotel's system outage.
60 dollars for valet parking no other option
Very Clean Comfortable beds
Within walking distance of tourist sites and great restaurants. Comfortable beds! Hotel bar had great happy hour and the bartender made the perfect old fashioned with love.
Everyone was very helpful & attentive!
Good customer service Very expensive hotel. The movies in the rooms are 20$ each. No HBO or any good channels really. Restaurant in the hotel is outrageously expensive (making room service also very expensive). 10$ for bowl of cereal, 25$ for shorts tack of pancakes. Food is really bad too. Like surprisingly very bad. Soggy fries, Bad salads,sandwiches, pizzas
I think I got bit... there was something biting
1) clean bathroom 2) bath tub doesn't clog when you take a shower; commendable on this part. 3) bed was very comfortable. 1) Accepts pets; this should be flagged prior to booking. There should be an option for customers to select non-pet room esp if one has allergies. 2) Business practice of asking for advance credit card signature. 3) WIFI and use of business center equipment are not standard amenities and customer pays i.e. cost of WIFI is based on GB of data.
Everything exceeded my expectations. The room was clean and the bed was super comfortable. Loved the rainfall shower. The valet fee is overpriced. We were unable to get into our room because our lock needed to be charged. This was an inconvenience.
I liked the late check out option. The bed was extremely comfortable. The room was very clean. The front desk attempted to charge me for wifi even though my reservation included wifi. They expected me to pay or go out to use the public library in the common areas. After a visit back down to the front desk they provided me with an access code.
Valet parking was extremely slow and expensive
incredible suite for the price... they tried to put me in a regular dbl room when I checked in! Reminded them I had booked and been confirmed by their reservations mgr for a suite with 2 dbl beds.
A really fabulous hotel, friendly, happy and helpful staff, proud of their hotel and city and keen that you share it Not guite the same for some of the bar staff
The staff was very freindly and attentive and the hotel itself is beautiful. The fitness center was impressive. There was no wi-fi availbale in our room and we had to pay 13$ per day for internet acess.
The beds were very comfortable, the decor is very stylish and the staff couldn't have been more welcome and helpful. The perfect place to stay in DC near great restaurants, the metro, cool neighborhood. Will stay again!
Great location, very trendy, rooftop pool and bar excellent! Parking a little pricey, small but clean (and cute) rooms
The Embassy Row is a trendy well-decorated hotel in a modern style, recently renovated. Excellent location, nice rooftop with small pool. Good food on rooftop... they have a limited selection but only $10 for each item at the grill. The staff seemed confused at every turn whenever we asked a question, particularly about pool access. They were friendly but unclear. The hotel charged us an extra $10 per day for amenities without fully explaining this ahead of time. When we asked about this upon check-out, front desk staff said it is for wi-fi, rooftop, fitness center, etc. Why is that not just included in the nightly rate? Also, parking is very expensive ($45/night).
This hotel has just been totally renovated, it is literally steps away from a metro station (key in DC). I stayed here at the last minute recently and will be back.
The renovation & new decor is pretty much complete! The hotel looks beautiful! The facility is great, comfy, and has a lot to offer. Our stay was okay and went smoothly. The young man who checked us out on Sunday was super friendly and very nice! (wish we would've had him at check in) Check in at 1am was a bit rough and staff was not very friendly. Being giving some information or offer of any help or to answer questions would have been nice. Knowing about the breakfast foods in the AM would have made things a little nicer also.
Nothing Small room and very noisy
Very cool rooftop pool and bar geared towards adults with excellent live DJ. Gay-friendly atmosphere. Clean and modern furnishings. Fun, young vibe. Service could have been more professional. Hotel seemed understaffed. Pool area needs more lounge chairs as seating was very limited. Rooftop bar offerings were limited and bartender skill was somewhat below expectations for such a cool space.
Beautiful and clean We were given a handicapped room and the bathroom facilities made it difficult to shower and relax. We were also told there was no charge on parking when booking and then charged.
Staff attitude was terrible. It took over 25 minutes to check in at one o'clock in the morning. The lobby was dirty and dusty and the construction elevator came to bring me to my room had all sorts of debris . I was woken up to a fire alarm and walked down 8 flights of partially (dangerous) lit stairwell. When I arrived in the lobby it was thankfully declared a false alarm . I checked out of the hotel out of breath unshowered and a disheveled mess.
Embassy Row is a gorgeous area to stay. The interior design aesthetic was fun and well done! It was easy to relax and feel comfortable. The "Adult Rec Room" was a fun detail as well. Never did I see the staff without a smile. They were eager to help with everything from handling wet umbrellas to dining recommendations . Very close to the Metro, so navigating was a breeze. The A/C is loud inside the rooms. (But only a problem if you're a light sleeper.)
Ideal location. Some issues with the AC. It was ok, just not ideal.
It was a beautiful hotel, and the staff was very friendly. There were no ice machines, the wifi never worked the whole time we were there and they charged you for it. We had to call maintenance 4 times because AC would not turn off.
The doormen/bell captains, and all the staff were incredibly gracious and helpful. The room was good-sized and well appointed. The location is great with many restaurants in walking distance. The Metro is about 3 blocks away. The view from our room was not great, but we didn't care.
Staff very friendly and accommodating. good location, nice area for walking, close to Rock Creek Trail
Rooms, staff and food
Can rank this as one of the best. Not over the top stuffy but excellent service, clean, active, perfect proximity to all of DC, awesome decor, fabulous staff. We are just so pleased and are excited to know we no longer need to search for a place when we come to DC in the future. It will always be The Melrose.
Very professional, very polite, very nice.
The decor was excellent. I recommend using the subway, it's a short walk away. If it had a pool it would have been perfect, but otherwise it was fantastic. Service at the in-hotel restaurant was slow and food was a little overpriced compared to the excellent food you could get around town.
The staff was very welcoming and helpful. At times wait staff was sparse
Everything met my expectations.
was in town on business. Staff was polite and helpful even though I checked in around midnight. Room and decor were average at best. Not enough easily usable outlets next to nightstands. Central air system was noisy. a Pubic hair left on the sink and a couple in the shower was gross. Morning complimentary coffee was actually decent which was appreciated since I had to be up at 5. All in all, fine for me as a solo business traveler billing the client for accommodation. However if I was looking for a romantic getaway with my lady, or on vacation with the kids, i'd look for somewhere with a more unique and fun vibe and higher standards.
Great location, great food, great staff, very comfortable. No coffee in the rooms!
The hot apple cider in the lobby. Great location. The room was filthy. It was NYE so we didn't make a big fuss about it but we were not happy right away. Random sprays of stuff on the walls, a nice little white stain on the bed skirt. The first thing we did was check for bed bugs and luckily there were none. We went out for a nice dinner and when we got back there were security guards in the lobby who stopped us and asked if we were guests but we just nodded and he let us right by. We spent the rest of the night listening to one of our neighbors break glass and toss furniture around- I get it it's NYE but we didn't think this hotel was that kind of place or we never would have paid this much to stay here. The only thing the front desk did was offer us comped breakfast and to have security "look around". The final blow came upon checkout when we found out the valet fee was $50! $50?! Why not offer to comp that instead of breakfast no way we were gonna eat something made in this filthy place.
When your paying $450 you would expect free internet
The hotel is a class act as good if not better than the four seasons and close to the Raffle's hotel chain
We took our friends and business partners on a east coast vacation trip. Our last stop was the Mandarin Oriental. What a wonderful end to a great vacation!! We only wish we could have spent more time at your magnificent hotel. Everyone we had contact with were very cordial and accommodating. We will definitely return for a longer stay to see some of the sights we missed on this trip. We will also be staying at your great hotel. Thank you for all the wonderful service, till next time. I truly appreciate the ease with which we got the two smoking rooms adjoining each other, it was instrumental in choosing your hotel. Robert & Catherine Aganon No complaints.
Everyone was very nice and the food was wonderful. The hotel was spotless and decorated very well. Nothing. It was great.
