Getting to DC was a bit of a drama: what ought to have been a 3 hour train trip took 9 hours due to a crime scene on the track along the way (not kidding), compounded by a very argumentative taxi (cab) driver from Union Station to the Hotel.
So what a joy it was to walk into the Park Hyatt. From the moment we were shown the door to check-in, and the moment we had to leave after 7 days, the hotel was a welcome oasis with friendly and courteous staff. It is also in a great location within easy walking distance of Georgetown, Foggy Bottom, Dupont Circle and The Mall.
The rooms are spacious, comfortable and well-appointed with good light & lighting and air-con that worked but wasn't noisy. The bathroom and bathroom amenities were great.
The breakfast in Blue Duck Tavern was well-priced with plenty of choice. We had dinner once in the Blue Duck Tavern and it was also very, very nice. (Having said that, I think the food generally in US is of a high standard and our image of massive hamburgers and hot dogs is an outdated one).
My only very small issue to raise was that I asked for a bowl of fruit in our room on arrival - and it never arrived. But we were not charged for it, so it's neither here nor there.
