“Favorite Luxury Hotel in the city near all metro transportation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

My daughter and I stayed at the Ritz this past Saturday and cannot say enough wonderful things. From the minute we arrived the service was top quality, professional and focused on our total relaxation. Everyone from doormen, to the check-in (offering waters and other comforts) and even housekeeping were always available and asking if there was anything we needed. If you really want to feel extra special I highly recommend upgrading to the "Club Level" You can then enjoy breakfasts with the best pastries, fruits, hot eggs, bacon, champagne, juices, coffees, espressos, homemade hot chocolates, teas and many other delicious breakfast items. The Club level is open all day (breakfast, lunch and cocktail hrs) to visit at your whim. We especially enjoyed the cocktail hours with red and white wines, champagne with strawberries, cheeses, snacks and gourmet appetizers (hot and cold). We hardly had room for our dinner at the fabulous West End Bistro. Of course there are always candies, cookies and desserts at the club level as well. The rooms are great with views of the city, super comfortable beds and a fabulous rainfall showers head in the marble floor bathrooms. The President Lincoln milk chocolates and crackling fireplace on the TV for the turn-down service is also a nice touch. If you are looking for top notch service, comfort, cheerful employees and convenience in the city. This is the luxury hotel for you! I can't wait to return.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 9th floor (Club level) you can even come to breakfast in the cushy bath robe and s...

My wife and I had a great time and she was treated like a queen by every single person she encountered with. Staff, service and amenities were all exceptional. Westend Bistro food was top notch and service staff Juan and bartender Chris were truly professional.

We stayed here over New Year by mistake! We had chosen to move from a very poor neighbouring hotel (also 5 star) and stayed a week on the Club floor. The room was very well appointed and the service in the Club lounge way above expectations. Yes New Year's eve was overfull but it was only one night. The adjoining fitness suite and pool were of commercial size and shared with outside members. Maybe not what everyone wants but it never got too crowded. We didn't eat in the restaurant - it was always empty.This hotel delivers and the Club rooms are well worth the extra payment.

Room Tip: Choose the club floor

We have tried many hotels in D.C. as we go often for both business and pleasure. Our favorite Hotel is The Ritz-Carlton, Washington DC. The service is so far beyond what we have experienced at other hotels. The accommodations are beautiful and the food is always perfect. There is no need to eat out because their restaurant is superb. The appetizers and signature drinks make the bar a relaxing place to meet friends and family. The Ritz is elegant and comfortable, don't know how they manage that! Every staff member greets us and by the end of our stay many of them have memorized our name. Privacy and personal service is the best we have ever experienced. It is definitely a treat worth experiencing again and again! It is a short walk to everything including Georgetown!

Room Tip: Every room has been perfect just wish we could bring home the bed!

Stayed here for 3 nights at a conference. Spacious well appointed room. Enormous bathroom. Nice relaxing public spaces. Good food. Only slight disappointment was banana skin in bathroom bin when I checked in, but I can live with that. Superb service really makes up for it.

This past December we spent our anniversary at this property for the third year in a row and can not wait to go back.
Our room overlooked the courtyard and was very quiet.
Great health club next door.
