“how to love D.C.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

WE recently spent a weekend in D.C. to celebrate ,with millions,the cherry blossoms festival. The day was very long for our group of both children and female adults , we arrived in a cloud of exhaustion . I had a hard copy of my hotel confirmation unfortunately the information was not forwarded to the hotel. In the nicest possible way Ali Shiran,the front desk supervisor, made a quick call ,received a quick e mail back and saved,with a flourish ,our girls getaway. We thank him and the Ritz-Carlton for a wonderful stay. I hope my this coming weekend at The Battery Park Ritz-Carlton will be as enjoyable. Candace Berlin

Not what you expect from a Ritz property! We came in early for a wedding and everywhere we went in the hotel they were short staffed! Getting a cup of coffee at their high end coffee bar took 30 minutes. If you didn't order the breakfast buffet it took 25 minutes for an order of eggs. We went to the bar for a drink before the wedding and it took 10 minutes for someone even to take our drink order and we would have had a second but no one came back! Very poor showing and surprised by the poor service at a Ritz!

The hotel is nice however the lobby is on the 4th floor which made things a little difficult. The room was neat but small and tastefully decorated. I was a little disappointed it seemed as though the dish for the soap had been used as an ashtray. Not sure why it would not have been replaced.

We recently stayed here over a weekend. We were able to check in early, and our room was perfectly adequate, and very clean. However, it's nothing like the other RCs we have been to. It was very crowded- two weddings that night, as well as a lot of families. I am thinking because it's relatively cheap that it draws a different crowd.

We had an afternoon snack in the small lounge restaurant- the food was very good, but service was only okay. There was a wide range of people, from folks waiting for the weddings to start, to men wearing scruffy jeans and t-shirt, watching the bike racing on the tv.

The Asprey toiletries are terrific, and the two a day house keeping is great. However, we had brought champagne, and at higher level hotels, the staff generally notices, brings a bucket, flutes, etc. Here, they only put more ice into the very tiny ice bucket.

The mattress is also very soft- both of us had a hard time sleeping.

The next morning, the wrong newspaper was delivered to the door. Okay, we can deal with that. We ordered room service for breakfast. It came within 35 minutes. .. but the order was really, really wrong. We would have sent it back if we weren't on a tight schedule. I had ordered an egg white omlette with mozzarella cheese and a variety of vegetables. . . a regular omlette with cheddar, LOTS of ham, and different vegetables showed up. I had also asked for bacon, which didn't show up. My husband's order was accurate, but they gave him the wrong tea. He ended up getting the tea he wanted (Earl Grey) from the in room beverage center. The toast was also very, very soggy.

We made a brief visit to the spa/pool. The pool was JAMMED at 9 am on a Sunday- lots of kids, with completely uninterested parents "watching" them. There was a lifeguard there, but he was not paying attention at all. We didn't expect solitude, but we also didn't expect 5 young (under 6) kids hanging out in the whirlpool with us, their parents on the phone, etc.

The spa area is VERY crowded. It's down a narrow hallway, and the changing rooms get crowded. No one was in the men's, so my husband didn't have any complaints, but the women's was very crowded. There were six of us in the sauna. Also, the showers are nice, but there is no lotion nearby. You have to go across the changing room to apply it. The relaxation room is VERY small- just a few chairs, apples, and cucumber water. There were a few Washington Posts, but no magazines, etc.

This is a step up from a Marriott, but below Ritz standards. There's a reason it is only a Tier I!!

Room Tip: Away from the elevators!

This was a day trip with my daughter-in-law for spa and lunch. The hotel clearly caters to business travelers who are a captive audience. The spa has the luxury of Ritz, but small and very few amenities. The pool area is closed from 10am-5pm! So, no swimming or lounging by the pool. The Relaxation room, the only place to lounge/chat/enjoy time not in a treatment...is very small and no amenities except a pitcher of water and hot tea. I expected so much more from a Ritz Carlton. The practitioners were good but not great...very disappointing for a Ritz and those prices.
Lunch was in a very good atmosphere, as expected from a Ritz. Some of the food was cold, but we were enjoying; so I did not comment. Won't go back.

Room Tip: We did not stay overnight

This is my first stay at this property. It was billed as "exceptional" by friends who have stayed here and I second their opinion. The rooms are good sized, furnished lovely and the hotel tends to just about every detail. It is adjacent to a luxury mall and has direct access to it. If you are a shopper, you can shop until you drop and never have to leave the property! The hotel itself is meticulous and room service is extremely efficient. Is it pricey? You bet but, if you want to bask in the lap of abject luxury, it is fairly reasonable. My only criticism was the lack of adequate outlets for the electronic gear we all need to carry.

Room Tip: Go to a high room; the views are exceptional!

We stopped here for two nights on a trip South. The hotel was very nice and conviently located. The rooms were smaller than I would have expected and we were surprised they didn't have 2 queens. The options were only 2 doubles or 1 king. Since we were only there for 2 nights it wasn't too much of an inconvience. The service was excellent and there are many nice restaurants close by.
