I've never been to D.C before and was pleasantly surprised by the friendliness of the staff. Stacy assisted me at the front desk during check in and was very helpful with information concerning the surrouding area. Though I can't say much for the REST of D.C's service industry, the Doubletree Suites is awesome! Thanks for the great stay!

I have had the privilege of staying at DoubleTree Suites in Washington DC on several occasions. Each and every time I received outstanding service! Melvin is the best!! He has worked at the DoubleTree for 30 plus years and always greets me with a smile and a kind word. The folks at DoubleTree Suites always make me feel welcome! Thank you!!!! -Dyann

I accompanied my wife, who was attending a conference, to D.C. and stayed at the Doubletree Suites for three nights. After a somewhat rocky start, they were oversold (a large group stayed an extra night) and had to put us up at a different hotel the first night, our stay was very enjoyable. Not only did they pay for the first night but they went out of their way to make up for the mixup and make us feel welcome. Central location between Georgetown and the museums and monuments. Workout facilities were adequate with towels and bottled water provided. I wished they had a larger selection of TV channels, no Fox News or HGTV. Also the bathroom in our suite was small. We stayed on the 6th floor and encountered no noise at all - very peaceful. We would recommend this place for business travelers as well as tourists.

Cannot beat the location of this hotel only one block from Foggy Bottom Metro. There is a Whole Foods Market and several restaurants within a couple of blocks. The Kennedy Center shuttle stops at the Metro, making it very easy to see a show. Our room was very quiet and the kitchen was great with a dishwasher, plates and silverware, and a full size fridge, microwave as well as two-plate electric stove. The restaurant across the street provides room service for breakfast as there is no lobby really with enough room for that kind of service. Usual high standards for Doubletree service. I did hear one woman say that high schoolers were in the room next to her and she got no sleep, and there is a lot of ambulance noise because it is 2-3 blocks to GW Hospital. However, our rooms were very quiet. We were on the 10th floor. The gym was also small but nice. Highly recommend this hotel for DC.

Room Tip: Maybe it would be good to request a room on the top floor to avoid noise.

I stay at the Doubletree Suites in Foggy Bottom 3 nights a week for business travel. Two room suites, kitchen, 2 HDTV'sc pull-out couch. Outstanding bedding. Great location, right next to metro, several local restaurants. Near Watergate, GWU. Staff is excellent and right on top of things. Pool on upper floor.

I will NEVER stay here again. DO NOT ACCEPT the room near the elevator on the ground floor near the elevator,. A constant circus of noise. Unhelpful staff at front desk. A guy knocking on my door with towels I didn't request or need. Never again.

Room Tip: Don't accept a ground floor room and the smoking floors are disgusting.

Good morning Live2,

I truly want to apologize for your unpleasant stay. I would like the opportunity to speak with you, to find out more about your stay, so I can correct the unhelpful front desk issue and repair your first impression of our hotel. If you are in Washington DC, I would invite you to return and allow me to show you that your first impression is not the standard of service. Thank you for your feedback and time.
