The Melrose Georgetown is a wonderful hotel located in an excellent spot to see and explore Washington, D.C. and Georgetown. The room was spacious and comfortable and the staff was exceptionally professional, friendly and helpful. Connor and Latonya were particularly helpful in guiding us to the perfect dinning experience or helping us get the best out of our tourist experience.... More

We were in town for Memorial Day to pay homage at the Viet Nam Memorial. The hotel is within easy walking distance to the memorial and Georgetown. The staff is very courteous, efficient, and friendly. Our room was spotless, and all of the amenities worked fine. There are no coffee makers in the rooms, but we seldom use one anyway.... More

My family and I traveled from New Jersey to Washington DC to enjoy the Memorial Day weekend at the capitol. The Melrose was an excellent choice. We liked in the minute we walked in the door. Lovely, almost art-deco interior. The room was quite large and the beds very comfortable. The location really can't be beat if you want to... More

The manager should pay attention to the upkeep before this place goes down hill fast! - broken trim in the lobby - nobody assigned to bus the tables outside, so before you can enjoy your morning coffee, you need to clean up. - overflowing garbage cans in common areas The room is good and as expected. The front desk staff... More

This was the third time I have stayed at the Melrose and part of the reason is the location. It is a walking distance to a number of key groups and for fun, it's a 10 minute walk to Georgetown. Aside from location, they have very friendly staff who seem to enjoy working there. I think I'll be back.

I was here for a two day business meeting and the location relative to the METRO and Georgetown was the key advantage. WIFI access was important for this trip and the base plan was so bad that I couldn't successfully navigate to the "paid" plan. This turned out to be good because I overheard others complaining about the paid plan.... More

Stylish hotel with elegant lobby and well furnished rooms. Located conveniently if you visit Georgetown or government establishements on Pennsylvania Avenue. Otherwise you must use metro, the metro station is situated close to the hotel. Wifi was free and with good speed although booking sites said that wifi was paid. Among the drawbacks I would mention absence of tea-coffee facilities... More

I stayed here for business. Thought the location was good, the staff friendly and attentive, and the rooms clean and comfortable. Had an issue with wifi, which the IT desk promptly addressed. There was also some hallway noise late one night and the front desk handled it immediately. They offer breakfast in room or in the lobby, and also offer... More
