Wonderful family friendly hotel in a very accessible location to see the fireworks. Room was spacious and immaculate and the service was on par with other Ritz properties.Our room service wait staff even set up a special table for our young kids, poured their syrup for them and probably would have cut their waffles if we had not stepped in...

We stayed here for only a couple of nights, but will definitely consider staying again if our plans bring us to DC. We are frequent patrons of Ritz Carlton and enjoy the service and comfort of the Club Lounge. We had a great experience here in the club. The staff were all very friendly; both concierge staff members were very... More

Many service problems with a recent 4 night stay at this hotel. For the rates charged, extremely disappointing. It started with a 25 min wait to check in and got worse the rest of the trip not because it was busy but because it was understaffed with only one person at the desk. We were never told in advance but... More

From the moment we arrived in a taxi, the welcome and service we received during our brief stay was extraordinary -- even by the very high standards of the Ritz Carlton chain. This hotel was attractive and well located, but what made this place so out-of-the-ordinary good was the very high standards of service. Everyone from the bell staff to... More

For me it's finally the people who make the difference, and the service here was impeccable. Starting from the doorman who greeted us by names, and as we are Russians our names are not so easy to pronounce for the Americans. The lady in the lobby bar who treated my daugher with chocolates, and of course tha reception. There are... More

Stayed there for 6 days, the staff is very helpful and friendly. Because the garage was under some construction, at some moments we had a lot of noise in our room. We complained and the staff responded efficiently. We also liked the location. We will be back

Stayed here for the Nike women's half marathon. The hotel could not have been more accommodating. They handed us maps of the route when we arrived, along with other pertinent info. The staff welcomed us with fresh water and warm cookies-what a welcome for weary travelers :-). The room was well appointed and we enjoyed the evening turn-down service. We... More

Our short stay in Washington at the Ritz Carlton was above my expectations. We stayed in a gorgeous suite that had a relaxing sitting room with a large functional desk from which to work. Bed was wonderfully comfortable with crisp linens and could not hear a single thing from outside. Practically soundproof. The bathroom was to die for, just beautiful... More

I spent three nights at the Ritz Carlton for a meeting held at the hotel. They were nice enough to get me my room when I arrived about 3 hours before check in time. Unfortunately I did not realize I was assigned to stay in the sauna. The thermostat was reading 78 degrees in spite of it being set to... More
