“My Weekend Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

My wife and I had a great time and she was treated like a queen by every single person she encountered with. Staff, service and amenities were all exceptional. Westend Bistro food was top notch and service staff Juan and bartender Chris were truly professional.

We stayed here over New Year by mistake! We had chosen to move from a very poor neighbouring hotel (also 5 star) and stayed a week on the Club floor. The room was very well appointed and the service in the Club lounge way above expectations. Yes New Year's eve was overfull but it was only one night. The adjoining fitness suite and pool were of commercial size and shared with outside members. Maybe not what everyone wants but it never got too crowded. We didn't eat in the restaurant - it was always empty.This hotel delivers and the Club rooms are well worth the extra payment.

Room Tip: Choose the club floor

We have tried many hotels in D.C. as we go often for both business and pleasure. Our favorite Hotel is The Ritz-Carlton, Washington DC. The service is so far beyond what we have experienced at other hotels. The accommodations are beautiful and the food is always perfect. There is no need to eat out because their restaurant is superb. The appetizers and signature drinks make the bar a relaxing place to meet friends and family. The Ritz is elegant and comfortable, don't know how they manage that! Every staff member greets us and by the end of our stay many of them have memorized our name. Privacy and personal service is the best we have ever experienced. It is definitely a treat worth experiencing again and again! It is a short walk to everything including Georgetown!

Room Tip: Every room has been perfect just wish we could bring home the bed!

Stayed here for 3 nights at a conference. Spacious well appointed room. Enormous bathroom. Nice relaxing public spaces. Good food. Only slight disappointment was banana skin in bathroom bin when I checked in, but I can live with that. Superb service really makes up for it.

This past December we spent our anniversary at this property for the third year in a row and can not wait to go back.
Our room overlooked the courtyard and was very quiet.
Great health club next door.

stayed here during Inauguration Week at exhorbitant prices - gouging rates that only come up every four years and during World Bank-IMF meetings.

room was comfortable and quiet - overlooked courtyard area and Ritz Carlton condo-apartments on rear side of complex.

Only rub - slamming doors! Every door is set to slam shut, and the walls shake as doors on the hall slam shut all day long.

Excellent service throughout our stay - Everyone was in top form to make sure that guests got everything needed and some fun souvenirs during Inauguration stay.

Lobby lounge menu was OK, needs a bit of updating

Would definitely stay here again, but not at Inauguration prices.

Room Tip: ask for room overlooking garden courtyard if you like it quiety
