The location of the Hotel is very nice. In the east of it we went regularly to Georgetown for shops and restaurants. In the west we went for the museums. It is also close to the Foggy Bottom metro rail station. The room were clean and the staff nice. The lobby was spacious and nice to wait for the rest... More

The hotel is certainly well appointed and of high quality. Great size rooms, very comfortable, good location, good quality food. However, the music in the lobby and restaurant area this time was awful .. the kind of thing you'd hear in a nightclub, and completely inappropriate for the style and clientele of this hotel. Last time I was there this... More

First of all the bed and the linen were so comfortable that we did't want to get out the bed. The rooms are big and clean. The location is very good. It is close to some of the monuments and other attractions and it is close to all the action in the georgetown neighborhood.

The most competitive advantage of this hotel is its geographic location. The employers are very professional and attentive to details. Bravo to those at the reception and the restaurant. You are great. Continue the good work.

The review is late, but no less heartfelt. Absolutely loved the Melrose! I stayed at the hotel years ago- and could not believe the complete transformation! Lobby, bar, restaurant area were beautiful- and HUGE! We were staying in town because of my brother in law's funeral- and it was really important that there were no glitches. Everything was perfect!

My wife and I stayed recently and were very pleasantly surprised what a great hotel this is. I'm sorry we didn't find it sooner, but this will be our #1 hotel in Georgetown. The lobby is lovely, the room was great, and, most especially, the staff were outstanding. Always friendly, outgoing and helpful. We had a fun night in the... More

Had a great time at this property. We just stayed for an evening but we had a top floor room that was a great size (600sf) replete with sitting area, separate home office, and nice extra firm bed. We loved the décor and color scheme and how they wove the personality and history of DC without coming off as contrived.... More

I am not much of a complainer, but I am very disappointed with the service I received at this establishment. The hotel is aesthetically pleasing, but looks are very deceiving in this case. As soon as I checked in and went to my room my TV was broken. I had to call the front desk twice and it took almost... More

Was in town on 9/4/14 for my brother-in-law's funeral so not a happy occasion. Found the Melrose online and it looked very nice for a reasonable price so I skipped the Westin and booked here. Told 2 brothers and they also booked rooms. I used Expedia, one bro used Orbitz and the other booked directly with The Melrose. No matter... More

We weren't sure what to expect when we made our reservation at the Melrose Georgetown. The price seemed too good to be true given its location within walking distance of the heart of Georgetown. Well, the pictures on line did not do justice to the hotel. The hotel was newly remodeled, the rooms were clean and spacious, and the staff... More
