“Excellence at the Melrose Hotel Georgetown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Rennovation is fabulous, staff is exceptional! They were friendly, helpful, and attentive to my needs. They were unobstrusive, but always seemed to "be there" to meet my needs proactively. Small and intimate but has a 5 star look and feel. I would recommend for business or vacation!

Stayed here for one night first week of June 2013. I would stay here again. Staff was nice although finding my reservation took a few minutes. Location; close enough to everything (Georgetown, metro, and a Trader Joes across the street). Room was comfortable. Loved the blackout curtains (maybe because my hotel right before this one had the worse blackout curtains).

But the Bed was awesome. I would come back for just the bed.

Overall if you can get a good price for the room I would recommend staying here.

In the past I have raved about this place and panned it big time, so I am back again (mainly for the location) and it is time for an update.
Well the refurbishment is progressing and I actually got a refurbed suite on the 5 floor this time. First impressions are good and to the uninitiated eye the grey decor and modern furniture is very pleasant. But if you remember the old rooms and look closely you will see that it is just a very good paint job, that probably won't last too long. Look even closer and you can see where the old bathroom fittings were (the tiles are the same).
The bar stools have still not been replaced and the selection of beers and wines is woeful.
But the friendly atmosphere remains, you can't change the great location and the rates don't seem to have gone up significantly (which is what seems to be driving the recent reviews).
So things are on the up and the chances are I will keep on coming back.

I have just spent three nights in this hotel, and I return home with a wonderful feeling. This hotel is nothing more, nothing less than what I need.
Perfect and friendly service, nice interior decoration, excellent location, beautiful rooms, delicious continental breakfast, wifi ...
The airco in my room was leaking, but staff had it repaired as quickly as possible.

When we arrived they had no reservation in their System and it took quite some time for us while they Managed to give us a New room.
All in all. The Hotel was really nice and Not that far from the City. Just 8 minutes to walk.

The Melrose is an older property recently renovated. It's on the smaller side, which I like, and the staff were friendly. It sits just off Washington Circle and is very convenient to GWU and IMF/WB/IFC, and Georgetown is a short walk over the bridge. The Metro is close by at GWU, and it's on the route of several buses. There is a dining room in the hotel -- mainly used for breakfast -- and a lobby lounge that tends to serve as an evening meeting spot for groups in the hotel. Furnishings are good quality, including linen and towels. I'd be happy to stay there again.

The Melrose was home base for my five-day trip to Washington DC. It is a aesthetic boutique hotel, located in a Foggy Bottom, one of the great neighborhoods on the west side of DC. The Melrose is just a few blocks from the Foggy Bottom Metro, connecting you to the monumental sites of downtown DC. Furthermore, it's a short walk away from the historic neighborhood of Georgetown - filled with shops and eateries.

The room was well-designed; the bed was comfortable. My only complaint would be the sound-proofing. I woke a few times to the sound of someone showering in the suite above.

The staff were friendly and helpful. The fitness centre is great for a boutique hotel.

Overall, a great experience... Would stay here again!
