In December 2014 we stayed at this lovely hotel. Great location and the staff was great. They made us feel special and welcome and I can highly recommend this hotel.

We found our room and the common areas to be what I expect at a Ritz Carlton. We had a short stay but great service, nice bar and excellent breakfast buffet. Our room was well appointed and comfortable. Great location. Easy walk/cab ride to Smithsonian!

We stayed for four nights over New Years and found the hotel lacking on the attention to all the details that Ritz-Carlton is known. For positives, we thought housekeeping was excellent and quickly became familiar with our morning routine so that the room was made when we returned from breakfast. The hotel is located in the Foggy Bottom area within... More

The only other Ritz Carlton I had visited was in Istanbul. The room in Washington had much in common with the décor in Turkey, but was smaller and less luxurious. For example, the easy chair was clearly inferior, the shower stall smaller, the room smaller, etc. There was also an unexpected amount of street noise. This is not quite a... More

Stayed 4 days here, and had a great room with no problems. Have stayed here before and a similarly good experience. Place is not cheap but the location is good, and within walking distance of Georgetown and other great DC places. The conference facilities were large and reliable, one draw back is everything is in the basement so no windows.... More

The Ritz Carton Washington DC is a luxury/ luxury business hotel located not far from Foggy Bottom in Washington DC. The property is well located close enough to downtown, a short walk to Foggy Bottom metro and about a 10 minute walk to Georgetown. The rooms are a good size and are comfortable. There are luxury touches such as the... More

We came for breakfast on Saturday morning with my wife and two children, Nehla was friendly and extremely professional. It was our first time in DC and she made sure she answered all of our questions and we had tons of questions! The service in this hotel is wonderful but Nehla made it just a bit more special.

Great hotel, excellent staff, very attentive and willing to make the best of customers' experiences. Just came back from a weekend getaway to DC with family and enjoyed every bit.

I recently stayed in this hotel for my 13th time. I reviewed it as "overpriced and in disrepair" after my 12th visit. Business brought me back. I am pleased to have enjoyed a much better experience. Although it is an older hotel, I found the rooms and public areas re-carpeted and repainted. The hotel was spotless. The staff is the... More
