I think the hotel is beautiful - just across from my favorite little church Grace Episcopal, right in the heart of charming Georgetown and full of smiling faces - but I am wondering why management makes so many bad choices?

"Putting on the Ritz" was supposed to be a night away from the kids, wooing my spouse, wallowing in comfort, and generally realigning my inner mettle before heading back out into the real-life world of commute and paperwork... Why did I leave more worried about this hotel's overhead than my own?

Times must be bad when $500.00+ doesn't even buy you the basic necessities:

1. Don't bother paying for a movie - the TV screen is full of horrible lines and sound is barely decipherable. The dialogue in MEN IN BLACK 3 was beyond my ken.

2. Don't throw away anything - the RITZ can't afford a garbage liner in the living area, nor a waste paper basket in the bathroom.

3. If you want to use wi-fi, better look for an EconoLodge...

4. Bring your own tissues.

5. Don't sit outside, "ie don't smoke", because the RITZ doesn't turn on the outside heaters.

6. Certainly don't expect a clock in the bathroom, nor a bathtub for two, mini tv, extra shower heads etc.

7. Go on a diet - room service gouges.

8. And if you book a "Large Premier Room" -- learn to walk sideways.

I believe that if we had asked for something, or complained, we could have received tissues, outdoor heat, waste paper basket etc. But I think luxury still means staying where someone else has considered the clients' needs before request.

Great rooms, well-appointed, nicely furnished, unique modern old world feel to the entire hotel. Love the lobby lounge with complimentary spiced cider (at times) and oversized wood-burning fireplace with plenty of seating around. You can enjoy a meal in the lounge near the fireplace or head up to Degrees bistro. The food is tasty and rooms are typically quiet. The spa is very nice, quiet and open to guests of the hotel. We typically stay here for a holiday every year and look forward to a tiny bit of pampering.

Room Tip: Get the AAA rate or government rate when on business. Definitely dine at the bistro-it will not let you down... and be sure to use the spa... the massages I had was great!!!

Stayed here during the summer during a power outage in the city. Very nice, relaxed hotel in the city. The rooms and bathrooms are standard Ritz quality. The hotel is laid out differently, however that is because this was an old factory (so I am told). Nonetheless, the location is rgeat and the staff is very friendly and personable.

I absolutely loved discovering this place. After mistakenly going to the R-C in Washington, DC, the one in Georgetown was heaven sent. Loved the atmosphere when you first walk in -- very quiet, serene and cozy. (Appeared to have some English charm to it.) The plus for this first visit were the sauna and steam room (small -- fits like 4-6 people cozily) and the quiet atmosphere. The negatives -- small space for changing/locker rooms, so when there were 6 of us trying to get into and out of the changing area it wasn't easy...but we were all accommodating. The massage was good -- not GREAT -- but good. The hostess and valet were more than professional and courteous. I'd say great experience. But would have to go back to try out some of their other treatments. Bottom line: if you're looking for comfort, quiet and relaxation you'll find it here...

The Ritz-Carlton Georgetown is situated in a great location within Washington, DC...Georgetown. You will want for nothing during your stay...everything is within walking distance. Great food and shopping all around the hotel. Behind the hotel is an AMC movie theater and access to the waterfront. This is a perfect get-away for couples wishing to take time out of busy life to unwind and reconnect. The hotel offers valet parking...can go in and out as many times as you would like for about $50 per night. However, there is a $10 parking lot across the street (less than 50 feet) away from the hotel...the only downside is that you park at your own risk overnight. There are a couple of other parking garages ranging from $22 to $35 daily...do not park in the garage next door to the AMC theater because it is the most expensive garage for sure. In terms of accommodations...the decor is unique for a Rtiz-Carlton...modern and very warm and inviting. The checkin was fantastic...the valet open and close doors and great you with Sir and Madam. The rooms are in excellent condition. The flat screen TV is accompanied by a Bose entertainment center/system. The bathroom has a nice tub (a little small for two people), but a nice way to get the party started; separate shower and toilet. The bed is very comfortable. The curtains keep out 99% of light and external noise (from street and other guests) was non-existent - we did ask for quiet room upon arrival. The hotel offers a turndown service, which should be standard for all hotels of this caliber, but are not unfortunately. The room is stocked with snacks (you pay for) and there is 24-hour room service. We had breakfast at the restaurant downstairs. The service and food was good. I do not think it is worth the money though...but I recommend not spoiling a good weekend, by trying to leave the hotel to get some breakfast after sleeping in from a wonderful night...a little more money will not hurt you at this point.
