The Avery is the perfect place to stay a few days or even longer in DC. It is ideal for expats moving to DC. The rooms are very comfortable and have been decorated with a lot of taste. The back garden and front courtyard are accessible to guests offering a nice spot to read a book or enjoy a drink. The location is superb in the heart of Georgetown but also close to Dupont Circle and all international institution offices.
This hotel is so cute and quaint. While it does not have the amenities of a large hotel such as pool and work out room, it has beautiful sitting areas around the grounds. The rooms are beautiful, modern with a touch of an old victorian style which makes it unique. It is nestled in a quiet neighborhood that is close to parks, recreation and walking trails. The staff and owner were personable and made sure all of our needs were met. They made themselves available and made sure our stay was comfortable and pleasant. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone seeking lodging in the area. It is centrally located and within a little more than a mile of all major attractions in the area.
I usually stay in big hotels, and only chose this hotel because it was so close to my son's new apartment. I may change my ways in the future, because this experience was so amazing. The hotel itself is lovely. The room (patio) was large, clean, well appointed and so, so quiet. The staff (Justin) could not have been lovelier or more accommodating. Obviously... covid... so no breakfast or tea, but they arranged for complimentary coffee across the street. My personal bugaboo, cleanliness! The place was really, really clean. We felt safe and comfortable the whole time. I'd highly recommend this charming hotel if you want to be in Georgetown.
My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary, and it was perfect! The hotel is located on a quiet street in Georgetown, walking distance from the main strip and DuPont circle. The room was clean, beautifully decorated, and the soaking tub and patio were the perfect touch to our romantic getaway. I highly recommend this hotel over the other large, corporate hotels in the area. We will definitely be coming back.
We love small boutique hotels where the management and staff care and where there is the desire and ability to go the extra mile. Unfortunately the Avery does not fall into this category. The owner was quoted as saying that he wants his guests to feel that he and his staff “are ladies and gentlemen serving ladies and gentlemen in a relaxed setting” must have been diluted over the last 3 years. My view is that his staff should probably be looking for a career in an area other than hospitality. On checking out I was told by the clerk that I owed $538. I gave my card and was waiting to enter my pin or sign something. Somehow or other they debited my card without me needing to authorise it. A notification came up on my phone that they had debited $688. The clerk told me it was the system and tried to explain why the system behaved this way. She refused to listen to my concerns and she refused to take responsibility for the way that the hotel had taken $150 more than she told me it was going to take. Whilst she said she was the manager and I couldn’t speak to anyone more senior. Eventually the owner did phone me and immediately confessed that I had been mistreated and that the system needed to be looked at and his staff needed some training. He behaved professionally and appropriately, I wish his staff had done the same. However, until then I had no way of knowing for sure whether I was going to be an additional $150 out of pocket. The money was refunded but it has left a bad taste in my mouth and we will not be returning to the Avery next time we are in Washington. Apart from this I would say it that the room we had was lovely. The bed comfortable and everything was clean. Slightly bizarrely the bedsides lights had to be turned off by the door and there was no room safe. Breakfast is included but is, in my opinion, rather basic for a hotel of this pedigree. They get a delivery of pastries each morning and they are served on a first come basis. There was some not great coffee and fruit. I think a boutique hotel could have a Nespresso machine and serve good coffee and some nice juice or even smoothies would be appreciate.…
