I have been to Washington DC over 50 times on business, and have stayed many places. This was my first stay at the Melrose, and I will be staying there from now on (assuming they have room). They were very friendly, punctual, and the room could not have been improved upon. The bed was very comfortable, and the room was... More

We had only one night at the Melrose but we will return. Not only was the room large, clean and very attractive but the staff was super accommodating without being intrusive. We had one breakfast and a very late lunch which was made especially for us. It's about a five to ten minute walk across the bridge into Georgetown but... More

We chose this hotel for a weekend break from TripAdvisor ratings and were not disappointed. It is well located for Georgetown and the 'hop on hop off' tour bus to take the sites in you can walk easily into George town, down to the Potomac, the Lincoln memorial and the white house. The rooms were spacious and tranquil and the... More

We stayed at the Melrose for 5 nights in June and had a fabulous stay. We had a king suite which was huge for the price paid and the location. We had a full size dining table in our lounge/living area and a large (3seater) modern couch that folded out into a very comfortable large sofa bed for our 2... More

I had such an amazing time at the WPC event and this hotel and your front desk, bell, and door staff were fantastic.

We looked at a lot of hotels before booking The Melrose and we were very happy that we ended up choosing it. The location was great - easy to walk Georgetown or to Adams Morgan but not too far to walk down to the Mall for the day. The hotel itself was very nice - modern furnishings throughout and friendly... More

I have to say that I did a lot of research using the TA website for our 3 night visit to DC. We decided on the Melrose and were not disappointed.

This Hotel was impeccably maintained and absolutely spotless. The decor was modern and contemporary, but neither ugly nor gaudy. The staff was courteous and the rooms were quite neat and comfortable. The king-sized bed and its linens provided a most comfortable sleeping experience. The hotel itself is much closer to foggy bottom than it is to Georgetown. The shopping and... More
