Rooms don't have coffee makers, this in my opinon was very dissapointing. Otherwise, very nice accomodations. Restaurant food was delicious and waiter service was nice, but the food was very slow in coming out of the kitchen.

My husband and I stayed a few nights at this hotel hoping for it to be a nice little getaway. It is a beautiful boutique hotel in a great location. The valet was fantastic and friendly. However, we felt that because we are young, the staff was a bit Un- accommodating. It was as if we did not belong and were not welcomed into the hotel because our age. A bit of a superiority complex. Our hotel room heat was broken one entire night. The next morning, the concierge was awesome, apologetic and kind about this issue. However, it was quite overpriced for the experience, which was somewhat negative. Parking for $50/night really?

This is a great hotel, looks newly renovated with modern fixtures. The Melrose is in a great location, near everything at an affordable rate. The staff was over the top friendly and we could tell they cared and wanted us to enjoy DC!!!

We stayed at the Melrose Georgetown where my son asked his girlfriend to marry him. He knew that his girlfriend would want to have her mother and our family witness the moment when he "popped the question" We booked two suites and two King Delux rooms for the occasion.The details of the surprise are private, however saying how pleased we were with the rooms, which are very large, newly renovated, beautifully appointed and great value, and how attentive all of the staff were to all of our needs is information which we wish to share with everyone planning a stay in Washington DC for any reason.

Room Tip: These are large sized rooms. When booking a hotel on line, use a site that provides the square foota...

I am a New York City lawyer and I recently stayed at the Melrose due to its close proximity to my law firm's Washington DC office (literally right across the street). Great place. Very affordable (particularly by DC hotel standards). The staff was very professional and friendly; the lounge/lobby area was nice with downtempo "chill" music piped in at just the right volume level. Nice atmosphere. The room (king bed) was very clean (which is KEY), but slightly on the small side for me (I am 6' 2" 260 lbs), and that's why I gave it a 4 star instead of 5 rating. Seeing as though I was in town strictly for business, i couldn't really experience more of what the Melrose had to offer, but I will definitely stay there again when i'm back in the District.

We planned a vacation with the kids in DC to learn more about American history. Found a great rate for the Melrose Georgetown Hotel on Hotels.com. We have had very good service. The hotel is older but in great shape so clearly well maintained. The location is perfect; on Pennsylvania Avenue just a 5 minute walk in one direction to the trendy Georgetown neighborhood and 15 minute walk in the opposite direction to the White House. I would come back to this hotel in a heartbeat.

We stayed here for a business meeting during a recent snow storm. The rooms were great, the staff was very friendly, and it was in a great location. Breakfast service could use a little work - it was very slow and the servers were not always attentive. Great lobby and they have complimentary coffee available in the morning.
