“High Class Yet Home-like”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

We love this Four Seasons hotel. It is in a great location at the edge of Georgetown. It's not a huge hotel, but it has a lot of class. It feels warm and welcoming. Whenever we go to Washington DC, we stay here. The staff are friendly and efficient. It's overall a great experience. Highly recommended!

Positives:
1. Comp wify in the room for two devices.
2. Convenient privacy and maid service lights - much better than the dangling door handle messages.
3. World's best shower with fabulous pressure - also nice amenities and makeup mirror.
4. Efficient and professional maid service. The room was always clean and tidy.
5. Nice hangers, closet light and safe.
6. Two complimentary bottles of water each day.
7. Five star service at the front desk.
8. LOVED the availability of scissors, stapler and paper clips in the desk drawer, along with two handy electrical plugs for charging your devices.
Negatives:
1. No space in the refrigerator to place anything. It is too jam packed with hotel beverages.
2. No coffee maker in the room although you can request one.
3. It's expensive but then we usually get what we pay for.

Room Tip: There are two banks of elevators. Although the West Wing seems quieter it is further from the lobby...

If you want to stay near Georgetown, and can afford it, this is a terrific place. The staff was uniformly wonderful -- attentive and helpful. The 2 restaurants (Seasons and Bourbon) were great -- pricey but great. The bar was smallish, but with great outdoor space. A huge selection of creative drinks. Gym was a bit out of the way, but better than typical.

Not having before to Washington DC, my expectations were actually quite low. What a surprise to find Washington DC such a lovely city and especially the FS Washington DC a faultless hotel. Located in the Georgetown area, it is actually quite convenient for business in town and pleasure around Georgetown. The hotel is no architectural beauty from the outside, but it is comfortable, the rooms excellently appointed - I was actually given a suite but saw one of the rooms too. The service at the restaurants, reception and concierge just perfect.
Definitely recommend Washington DC and the Four Seasons!

I stayed at Four Seasons at the time of Cherry Blossom festival. The hotel is located at the heart of George Town which makes it very special.

The rooms were clean and big. I loved the stay. It's definitely a go-back hotel to stay.

Absolutely beautiful hotel in a great part of D.C. (Georgetown). Gracious and helpful staff who truly pampered us. Georgetown has great shopping and restaurants and is conveniently located to Reagan National, monuments and museums.

The rooms here are excellent and there is no better location in Georgetown than on the canal. I travel around the world yet I was amazed by the quality of the food. Every dish and dessert was delicious in a buffet prepared for a meeting, and the dinner at Bourbon Steak was excellent and memorable. Nicely done!
