Stayed here two weeks ago for two nights when we came up to watch a couple of GWU basketball games. Great location between foggy bottom and Georgetown. Easy to walk to great restaurants, shopping and monuments. Rooms were quite large for the city and the beds were great. Friendly, efficient staff, coffee in the morning, newspapers, what else could you... More

I cannot speak highly enough of The Melrose. My (16yo) Daughter and I stayed here in December for 4 nights and we didn't want to leave! Staff - incredible Room - Gorgeous Beds - Super Comfortable (one of the BEST Hotel beds I have stayed in) Location - Fabulous!! We walked everywhere, Georgetown is so picture-perfectly beautiful, squirrels running around,... More

Location and staff are outstanding. Easy access to Foggy Bottom metro station and an easy walk to Georgetown. Nice happy hour. Valet service was quick. My only criticism is that the bathrooms are a bit small.

My Husband booked this hotel last weekend for a weekend getaway and this by far was the best Hotel we've ever stayed in. From the time we pulled up to the hotel, the Doorman was ready to assist and provided quality service. The Front Desk personnel were just as professional and courteous. The young lady at the front desk, upgraded... More

An upbeat spot in a great location with beautifully decorated rooms. Best of the best customer service with a smile...plush bathrobes, comfy beds, fine linens, free wifi, and Molton Brown amenities. Asked for a quiet room and got one. I will definitely return once again.

I stayed at this hotel for one night (business) because of its prime location and excellent rate. It's very convenient if you're running between offices on the Hill and K Street, though I'm not sure I'll make this my "go-to" for DC business. First and foremost, I wouldn't say this is a 4* hotel- at least not compared to other... More
