“Excellent Property, Service and Location in DC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

The St. Regis is very centrally located in DC and an excellent property. The service is very high quality and what you would expect from St. Regis. The rooms are nicely appointed and the property is in overall good condition.

Took my wife and 2 kiddos to DC for a week in April 2014 and stayed at the St. Regis. What an amazing location and property. What was even more impressive was how attentive and gracious the staff was here - especially Alessio and Alex. Have never poster a review on tripadvisor, but am happy to do so because of how remarkable our stay was hat this hotel. Can't imagine coming back to DC and not staying here....

In order to attend a late night event in DC, I booked a one night stay at the St. Regis hotel in Downtown Washington. For full disclosure, I will share that I work less than a mile from the hotel and am very familiar with the neighborhood and related attractions. I have also eaten in the hotel's restaurant and bar a few times, so the only "new" experience I would have would be as a guest staying in one of their rooms.

I arrived mid-afternoon on a Friday and drove up to their entrance via the narrow driveway. I knew that parking was valet only and it is a steep $49/night. That rate is somewhat in range for hotels in that area of Washington, but I still think its hefty. You will be greeted by professional and well trained staff. The lobby is small, but classically decorated and comfortable. One end leads into its event area and the other end toward the bar and restaurant. The guest registration desk is to the right as your enter and is rather understated. My check in was smooth. For some reason, I had been booked for a handicap accessible room ( which I didnt need) so there were a few extra minutes spent finding a regular ready room.

My room was on the 7th floor and faced the rear of the building overlooking a lower rooftop and some building construction adjacent to the hotel. In truth, it was a crappy view and poor floor location considering I am a Starwood member. I have stopped complaining about bad view rooms on one-night stays, but I do think guests in the rewards program should always have a scenic view.

Beyond that, the room was well decorated and very comfortable. The bathroom was a good size and the shower was excellent. One of the best I have ever been in. I like a strong blast from showerheads and this one felt like being in a high quality spa shower. The bed was very comfortable, but the king size dominated the open floor space and made the small sofa on the far side of the room almost an extension of the bed. My one complaint about the room was that there was no iron or ironing board in the armoire which I did need for a wrinkled suit and shirt I was wearing for the event. However, you have butler service at the hotel and one was provided for me within minutes

I did not eat at the hotel, but did need an ice bucket for a champagne bottle. When I first called to ask for the ice machine location, I was told that one was on my floor and spent several minutes wandering the 7th floor before giving up and calling back. On the second call, the butler responded within about 15 minutes.

My stay at the St. Regis served the purpose of being in proximity to the events that I attended well. The neighborhood is ideal for food, shopping and sightseeing needs and every staff encounter at the hotel was top-notch. I was disappointed that there did not appear any "extra" for an SPG member with this stay, but left satisfied with making the choice to stay at the St. Regis for this occasion.

Room Tip: ask for something facing the street or courtyard. There is construction on the rear side of the bui...

There on business and it was a wonderful place to stay. I had been there 3 times before and it has always been a great place to stay! Good location near the White House. Probably my favorite dc hotel, and I've been there probably 10 times.

I have had the pleasure to stay at the St. Regis numerous times over the years. It is part of the Starwood family of hotels. My travel to DC has been for business and the location of the hotel is outstanding. It is just a couple of blocks away from the White House, other DC historical attractions, and in close proximity to a plethora of outstanding restaurants. The hotel itself is in an old historic looking building which has a welcoming and comfortable lobby. The rooms are roomy and clean and I was able to connect to the lobby internet for free, which was bonus. The staff is very friendly, whether it be the doormen, lobby check-in personnel, or the bartenders in the bar. I recommend the St. Regis to anyone traveling to DC.
