The Ritz-Carlton, Washington, DC
Ranked #15 of 141 Hotels in Washington DC
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Like any Ritz, the service is attentive and the staff well trained. The rooms are average, even for a Ritz, and if you didn't know better could be in any Marriott or Hilton in the country. The first floor design is flawed and the entire lobby is cut up. The bar is as well. It is not big enough for a hotel this size and it is always hard to find a seat. This is a nice hotel for a convention, but there are better choices closer to the Mall for sightseeing and fun.

Absolutely loved our recent stay. The lobby was small but was beautifully decorated. Loved the chandeliers in the hallways and elevators. Check-in was easy and quick and we had a beautiful room on the 11th floor with a view of an interior courtyard. It was nice not seeing city streets.

Upon arrival our beds were turned down with chocolates, classical music was playing on the alarm clock and the TV was set to a crackling fireplace. Was a great first impression. The complimentary waters in the room were an added bonus. Our room had two double beds, a small sitting area a spacious bathroom and a small foyer with a large closet.

The bathroom was large with a beautiful tub... Wish I had time for a bath. However, the water pressure was low and there was no fan.

Was impressed by the service, felt like royalty - doors were constantly held open for us, bags were brought up to the room promptly, locked ourselves out of the room and a manager came up within minutes. Great location too, close to Dupont.

I can't wait to come back!

Good hotel, good service. Located in the heart of DC, it was convenient for business meetings and close to Georgetown for good restaurants. Great customer services- received an email prior to arrivals asking whether I had any special requests, as well as my flights so that they could get things ready. Good initial impression with the staff, all very willing to serve and make one's stay as pleasent as possible. Rooms are very large and comfortable and the bed was great! Slept great all 3 nights.
Loved the tea/ coffee/cookies available just outside the elevators, complimentary of the hotel daily. Breakfast was not included in the rate, and it was a bit pricy, but was expected. Food is average, but service more than made up for it. \
Definitely recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to DC for work/leisure for the services and the spacious rooms.

I thought the Ritz was average at best. The set up was strange and the hotel bar and restaurant left a lot to be desired. The concierge was not much help. We asked for a close place to eat and the sent us to a salad shop around the corner where you can only take out. The hotel restaurant was full so we went to the Lobby bar and restaurant and it took forever. The housekeeping staff and front desk were very good. I have to be honest though, I wouldn't stay there again in DC. There are better choices.

Great hotel, well located, but very expensive. Club Floor Club is spectacular, with good food (they had some great passed hors d'oeuvres). Have to check your bill. I was charged for internet when it was supposed to be free.

Room Tip: I like the courtyard rooms, as they are off the street and quieter.

Gorgeous bathroom, I totally took advantage of the tub. Large, comfortable room. I entertained in the lobby and was a little frustrated when I realized i'd double tipped (on top of the service charge) and it wasn't pointed out...but I should know better, since i'm in the industry. Really enjoyed the adjacent gym and spa.

Stayed for three nights on a business trip and whilst the bed was very comfortable and the staff were friendly, I can't help thinking that it isn't that much better than other hotels to warrant the high prices.
