Don’t let the age fool you, the Melrose is really nice and in the middle of the action. The hotel restaurants are exceptionally good and reasonable with the exception of breakfast which I thought was overpriced. Most lunch items and some dinner menu items were less expensive. I ate there at all three times and the food was always good.... More

We have stayed at the Melrose on several occasions. Our repeat business in our highest recommendation. During every stay we have experienced top quality service from the very professional and caring staff. The accommodations are an excellent value for the money and the location is very good. We have stayed for combined business and personal trips. We will be back!

We have stayed here twice in two months and have been very impressed. The location is ideal for us - GWU, Georgetown and all of the monuments. Service and hospitality are top notch. Rooms are very clean and the bed linens are so nice. If you want a quiet room, you will not have a view of anything but the... More

We were in Georgetown for a long weekend and we loved this hotel. It has been remodeled recently and the guestrooms are large and done very well. The bathroom was especially nice and it wasn't just a typical renovation with paint and caulking. It really felt new and it was divided which is great for couples. The location is also... More

This hotel has serious management problems. My husband called early when he left for a meeting to have the room clean. He walked to the meeting and back and the room was not clean. He was hot and sweaty and wanted to shower. To make a long story short it took hours to get the room clean. He had to... More

I was pleasantly surprised with The Melrose and I wish I had given it a chance during my other stays in DC. We always stayed at the Palomar as it claims to be a luxe hotel but have never received such great service, anywhere. Parker greeted us at the front desk, made us feel incredibly welcome and generously upgraded us... More

I stayed at the Melrose for two nights in connection with a business trip. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. I was particularly pleased by the comfortable firm king-sized bed and the many pillows, including bolsters. I usually have a hard time sleeping in hotels, but had no problem on this trip. The blackout curtain liner kept the room... More
