This property is one of the best hands down I have had the pleasure to visit. The staff is attentive, the property is well kept and the area is wonderful. Although the weather was not the best we had plenty of space to entertain friends from out of town and everyone went out of

We went to DC for a weekend get away. We’d never stayed in Georgetown so decided to this visit. We picked the Ritz because we usually love the Ritz. The hotel is in a great location; very close to M street. The staff were great, good service, clean hotel, comfy beds but just

Went to this hotel midweek on a couples get away. Not sure if there were any bad reviews but I can't think of 1 downside to this hotel. Very cool building in an old incinerator factory. Awesome use of the existing structure while wrapping a high end hotel around it. I feel

My wife and I celebrated our 20th anniversary with a splurge at the Georgetown Ritz-Carlton. I arranged it as a surprise, and so I was a little nervous about how much she would like it. I shouldn't have worried. It was amazing, beautiful, cozy, and welcoming. We are

How far away is the hotel from the nearest metro to get in the city? Or is this walkable?
The hotel is in the heart of Georgetown which is a very lovely walk-able area with shops, restaurants and nightlife. To get to the Mall/museum area metros the easiest but years ago when the Metro was first proposed the residents of Georgetown wanted none of it so the closest stop is Foggy Bottom. You can walk to it but it is a healthy walk maybe 15 minutes but it is a fun walk through historic Georgetown and across rock Creek Park to Foggy Bottom. The problem would be coming home from a day of walking museums the wlak from the metro to your hotel would be extra tiring. If you want easy access to Metro a better bet for a hotel of that caliber would be the Mayflower, where I have also stayed and really enjoyed (actually better than the Georgetown Ritz) or the downtown Ritz which I have not been to so I would suggest reading the reviews. I know for a while a few years back that Ritz was really sliding downhill but I believe it has had a renovation. Both of these hotels are also Marriott properties if you have a preference. If you stay closer to the metro definitely take the short cab ride to Georgetown, it should be part of any trip to DC. Aslo, if you have Uber it works very well in DC, much cheaper, cleaner and better than DC cabs. Enjoy your visit!

Not at this location
The Ritz Georgetown does not have a concierge level. There is another Ritz in DC and I am not sure if they have a club level.

Is there a club level at the Ritz Georgetown? What benefits do Marriott Gold Elites get?
Greetings. This question was forwarded to me by Trip Advisor. The short answer is "I am not sure". Our reservations were made through Virtuoso so we got 'Club Level' type amenities - breakfast for two included, late check out, free internet access and so on. This is without a doubt one of our favourite hotels in the US and, for us ranked up there with the Four Seasons NYC and the Soho Grande in terms of service.......
