Reviewed April 21, 2014

My wife and I just spent 5 nights at the Melrose. It was an excellent choice. The staff without exception was attentive, helpful and friendly. The room was very spacious and was furnished beautifully. The bed and pillows were so comfortable we wanted to take them home with us. The room was incredibly quiet, we could've sworn we were the only ones staying there. My only complaint about the room was there were no towel racks.

The location was great, just a very short walk to the Metro station, close to Trader Joe's and CVS, as well as a small but interesting choice of restaurants, Our favorite meal this trip was just 4 blocks down the street, at Founding Farmers.

I had originally rejected this hotel as a possibility because we didn't want to stay in Georgetown, we wanted a location that was more central with access to the Metro. Turns out that despite its name, it's not in Georgetown, although Georgetown's an easy walk, maybe 5 blocks to M Street.

Room Tip: We were assigned a room on the back of the building that overlooked an alley and the back of another...

Read some mixed reviews about the Melrose, but in our experience it was excellent. Location couldnt be better, 5 mins from Foggy bottom metro, 15 min walk to the White House and 10 mins to the middle of Georgetown which is great for shopping and restaurants in the evening. The hotel itself is probably geared more towards the business traveller than tourists, but the rooms are a good size, and the service was great.

I travel a lot, usually on big brand hotels and I can tell you that the service that me and my family received at the Melrose is one of the best I have had, they do deliver fast and with the best attitude. My daughter ask by phone where was the ice machine and 5 minutes after the call, the ice was delivered in my room. I requested an extra towel and they delivered it also in less than 5 mins, that is something I appreciate.
The food is good and the staff is willing to help you at any moment.
The location is great as it is near from the Metro as well as Georgetown. We had a great experience

Room Tip: I was at second floor and it was nice

Great location near Foggy Bottom Metro Station, just 5-minute walk, quite close to some good restaurants. My husband and I stayed here for three days for the cherry blossom festival. The room is large and clean. The front desk was extremely nice and helpful in terms of the check-in and check-out process, city information and transportation. They also recommended some extremely nice pot to the cherry blossom, which was helpful to our tour planning. I would say each hotel staff was very professional. Next time, I would also stay here!

The staff at the Melrose was excellent from the doorman to the dining room staff. One person who needs to be singled out is Mia McDaniel. Not only was she delightful and greeted us by name every time we entered the hotel, but a smile was always present Mia took care of everything for us. Restaurant recommendations were outstanding, directions concise and attitude superb. Mia is the Concierge without a title. ( Can't that be corrected? She really needs her own desk!)

This Hotel may be overlooked my many butt its location to Georgetown and public transport is great. You made our stay a total success!

Room Tip: Rooms appear to be newly renovated!

This was my second stay at the Melrose. I was a little hesitant after my first stay, but my second visit confirmed that this is a very good hotel. The Melrose is well-situated near Georgetown, West End restaurants and the Metro. Rooms are large, quiet and comfortable. My only issue was plugs for charging things. there were plenty of plugs - just not close to flat surfaces other than the floor. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Since I know DC pretty well, I didn't need much help. I would definitely stay again.

My wife and I spent a seven day vacation at the Melrose. I understand it had been remodeled recently and everything was very clean and modern. The restaurant was pricey. The hotel was about a block and a half form the metro. Several restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. All of staff was very helpful and friendly.
