Unfortunately I cannot not compare against the Georgetown property. Side by side, this is a bit outdated and the reception is not so attentive. The lobby can get real crowded and noisy. The Pros, it is a Ritz! great lobby with brilliant peaceful fireplace. Thoughtful free coffee, iced tea, buttermilk cookies, apples and bottled water throughout the property, and welcoming... More

The Ritz Carlton is comfortable, and the rooms are well-appointed. It has good wifi, plenty of outlets and nicely appointed bathrooms. The concierge is also very good at helping with transportation. The breakfast was not very good, but the service was friendly and well-meaning. I will definitely stay there again.

People make the difference. This if often said but in respect of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Washington DC this saying is entirely true. I spent a week in late September together with my wife at the hotel for a conference and coming back to the hotel was always like coming home in the best sense. Everything was well prepared for making... More

I was really looking forward to stay at this hotel but its just not up to par with the other Ritz-Carltons. When you stay at a Ritz Carlton people expect perfection for the money that they pay. The positives are that the hotel is just renovated and that the people at the front desk are for the most part quite... More

It has been many years since I have stayed at this Ritz-Carlton, I usually stay at the property in Georgetown because of the proximity to shopping. I selected the DC Ritz-Carlton because my son is currently attending GW University and this property is only a couple blocks away. It's obvious as soon as you enter that the property has a... More

This was maybe the best hotel we have ever visited. The facility is beautiful and the staff,literally, could not do enough for us. If you can, spring for the upgraded club floor. The food is way beyond what others offer in those types of services and the wine selections were top of the line.

My wife and I recently stayed overnight at this hotel and found it to be a pleasant experience. The front desk folks were very nice and helpful and the room that we stayed in was also very nice. I must say that the whole experience was very nice but... I expected more. I guess when you stay at the Ritz... More

Fantastic from the moment we arrived. Everyone was gracious and welcoming, the room was lovely and they were very accommodating to our two dogs. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Room was recently renovated and my husband liked the bed so much, he wanted to purchase one!

This R-C has the best of the high-class feel you'd expect from this "chain" (I hate to call it thus...), and in a place like DC, that's saying something. The decor, impeccable and classy. The service, top notch. The menagerie of characters you'll meet sitting at the bar and lounging in the common areas will never fail to impress.

My goodness, this place is fancy. Okay, y'all. You see where I'm staying, so you have to know this was a work-related trip, right? Right. That being said, I enjoyed the heck out of being here. Everybody - doorman, front desk, room service, housekeeping - was friendly and helpful (though there's a housekeeping thing I'll get to in a little... More
