“Hyatt- Good Location”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

I have stayed at the Hyatt Regency many times on business. The location can't be beat; it is in the heart of Capital Hill and is within walking distance of the Capital and the House and Senate offices. I was in town for a Conference, held at the Hyatt, and meetings with our Members of Congress.

Every time I have stayed here it has been a pleasant experience. Check-in is quick and courteous. All the staff are friendly and efficient. I was pleasantly surprised that we had free internet on this visit! Also, they have upgraded their room keys. No longer do you insert the key card into the door. Now you just swipe the card across a reader on the door; neat!

The rooms are nice with good bedding. We didn't have a good view this time but we have in the past; no big deal. One small problem in our room was that the shower head was leaking and I used all the tea bags and I had to leave a note to get more.

We had a meeting in the Thorton Room on the top floor. It is very nice with a good view. It used to be a better view before they built the building next door.

There is an indoor pool and work out room located on the 2nd floor. There is a nice restaurant called Article One located in the lobby along with a comfortable seating area with long tall tables and cozy stuffed chairs. My husband and I sat down for a drink and a server was there immediately, took our order and brought us some nice chips and dip. The only problem was that our server disappeared and I had to ask for her. However, she promptly appeared with our tab. There is a very nice breakfast buffet located here as well.

One odd thing about this hotel is that the stairs are not accessible from the ground floor. We stayed on the 2nd floor and I often like to use the stairs for exercise and it saves time on waiting for an elevator when a conference session lets out and everyone makes a bad dash for the elevators. On this visit, a couple of the escalators to the bottom floor were out, one of them was open and at least one could walk down the steps. The other one was blocked. This caused a bottleneck when our general sessions ended and everyone tried to get to the upper level. I observed people working on them but they were not completely repaired by the time we left (5 days later).

The wife and I were in Washington DC for business and some R&R and stayed at the Hyatt Regency Capital Hill. It's within walking distance of Capital Hill and Union Station, so getting around is not bad. If you have something you need to get off your chest and tell congress you can stay here and walk over and let them know.
I do wish the hotel had more choices for eating. They offer just one restaurant "Artical One". It offer a nice breakfast buffet that is a little pricey.

A really nice stay. Beautiful hotel in great location that's walking distance to everything. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Will stay again.

Wi-Fi could have been included but still a good stay.

I stayed at the Hyatt Washington for business purposes. The hotel is located within walking distance of Congressional offices and only a few blocks from union station. The hotel restaraunt serves good food made with quality ingredients (vegetable wrap is amazing). I also found the beds comfortable and the rooms were adequately sized. Overall, good value and I will stay there again.

Room Tip: Upper floor rooms are quiet

We loved the shelves in the bathroom to put all our toiletries on. Staff was friendly, helpful. Location wonderful. Two negatives: (1) We were there over a weekend, w/o a car, and it was difficult to find eating places. The hotel food was excruciatingly expensive ($9 for a glass of orange juice; add $4.50 plus gratuity to that for room service), and other places close were either just liquor store/delis or closed at 7 or not open at all on Sat and Sun. (2) It WAS irritating to have to go downstairs BELOW the lobby every time we wanted to go outside the hotel. No way to go directly outside w/o having to go down one level, past the expensive restaurant. But clean, efficient, friendly, great location. We would stay there again but plan on roving further afield to find food.

Perfect location for those taking the train into Washington. Three minutes walk from the station. Convenient for my meetings at the SEC.
Staff were friendly and helpful. The lobby bar is a good place to meet friends.
The Executive Lounge is small but quiet and serves a light breakfast.

I've been planning this weekend for a few weeks now & couldn't be happier with our decision of staying at this hotel. Great location! And within walking distance to Capitol Hill & museums. We booked the Romance Package which included champaigne & strawberries & they were delivered to our room within 2 hours of checking in (not bad for us). Rate also included buffet breakfast & it was excellent! The room was a good size too. Loved the bed; very comfortable. No bathtub. Very nice shower, although a bit small for someone 6'. And valet parking was pricey ($45 per day).
