We spent four nights (2 adults, 2 teens) this fall at The Graham Hotel and were very pleased with the experience.
-Great location. The Graham is right in the heart of Georgetown, but on a quiet side street, so we absolutely loved the location. Yes, there is some city noise, but nothing out of the ordinary.
-Awesome value. As the hotel is relatively new, we thought the price point for the quality of the room and the location were unbeatable.
-Excellent rooms. We reserved the Luxury King suite plus another Luxury Queen where the boys stayed and both rooms were very spacious and well furnished. On the negative side, the rooms lacked bath tubs, seemed to be missing wall art, and were inadequately lighted.
-Public areas. Very solid reception, downstairs bar, but thought rooftop bar would be a great place to hang out in the summer time.
-Beds and pillows. Top notch and very comfortable.
-Reception. We found the reception staff extremely accommodating, giving us an extended check-out in one room, and then finding availability when our stay extended beyond what we expected.
There are a few drawbacks. Here are some:
-Elevator. There are only two, and one is labeled "Service," so waiting times seemed excessive.
-Breakfast. We opted for the included breakfast. This was a mistake. Breakfast was fine, but the menu was limited and service a tad slow. There's a great crepe place across the street; that would have been a better choice.
-Housekeeping. Unbearably slow. When housekeeping tries to combine cleaning with evening turndown service, you know there's a problem. This occurred several times.
-Temperature/climate. We had a lot of difficulty maintaining a desired temperature in both rooms, ultimately choosing to open windows to keep the room cool.
All in all an excellent stay, would definitely be the top value in Georgetown. No doubt Capellas and the Four Seasons are probably nicer, but for value the Graham can't be beat.
