“Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2013

I brought my 91 year old father and 7 year old son to Washington over the first weekend in April 2013. My father is unsteady on his feet and walks with a cane. The ENTIRE staff of the St. Regis made all of us feel so welcome, and truly treated my WWII vet father like a VIP. We had a mishap with my son leaving his souvenir bag from the Air Space Museum in a cab, and not only did cab driver bring it back to the hotel, the staff brought it straight to our room. The room was beautiful, and now my son is quite spoiled and will never want to stay anyplace less than 4 stars.

This was a stressful trip for me keeping two opposite ages safe and happy, and the main reason I could keep it together was the St. Regis.

We travelled to DC to celebrate my husband's US citizenship and chose the St. Regis primarily because of our familiarity with the Starwood brand. We were pleasantly surprised at the level of service and comfort for this quite affordable hotel. The lobby was luxurious and quaint...the rooms were a bit smaller than average, but touches such as the chandelier, the gold bathroom fixtures, and the crystal ice bucket were appreciated. The location is nice, but not perfect..well, that depends on what you are looking for. We were in DC to sightsee and visit the monuments. While all are within walking distance, the Lincoln, Jefferson, Vietnam, WWII, MLK, and Korean monuments were a bit far to walk if you are tired. Having said that, the White House is 2 blocks up the road and can be seen from the front of the hotel. The Capital building is a bit further, and the Washington monument is easily reached by foot. The bathroom amenities were very nice. Having said all this, I will concentrate on why we chose the St. Regis. We appreciate service. Their butler service motto of "as you wish" certainly lived up to it's name. Every detail we asked, was immediately and personally attended to. The concierge staff was exceptional at giving advice and booking dining for us. A few small details we noticed on the "negative" side was that the housekeeping staff in the hallways never smiled or greeted us, the doormen were wonderful at times, and not so much at others, and as we are SPG preferred guests, we had late checkout on our departure date. On this date, we had 3 interruptions in the early afternoon by staff wanting to check the minibar, see what time we were checking out, etc....all when we had notified the front desk that we were opting for our late checkout at 4pm (which is a benefit appreciated by SPG preferred guests). I would definitely recommend the St. Regis Washington D.C. and would return in an instant. Overall, a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: As this hotel is in a historic building, it is "small" compared to many others in the Star...

The concierge and room service staff are some of the best we've met. Wonderful attentive service. The building itself accounts for the downsides. No hotel is luxury in our view if there is no bath in the rooms. The rooms are overlooked by the office block opposite. The bar is so small you need to reserve a seat, we were turned away from an almost empty bar because all the seats were reserved! The restaurant was the poorest we ate in all week, although service at breakfast was lightning fast.

very well placed - only two blocks from the White House, and handy for Metro and lots of local restaurants.

Room was well-equipped and a good size but not generously large. Comfortable bed and complementary water and wifi.

Good bar where some food is available - though the menu is not always out which causes some confusion.

Breakfast is waiter service with lots of choice.

The Adour restaurant is top-end in quality and price, and worth the experience.

Overall the decor is a bit confused, but it is comfortable.

Staff were all attentive and keen to help.

Room Tip: Better to get a street view

We enjoyed a long-weekend at this beautiful historic hotel. The lobby and bar were beautiful and the room was spacious, especially for an older hotel. The bathroom was large and the tv in the mirror was a nice touch. The location was the biggest pro for this hotel-within easy walking distance of the White House and other downtown areas; we chose to take a cab to the museums, simply because of the weather, but could have walked it in pleasant temperatures.

One negative about this hotel was not having coffee in the room. We'd read about this and called ahead to ask to have a coffee pot in the room when we arrived, to no avail. Then it was delivered the next day, which was nice, but coffee wasn't replenished the following day. Starbucks is just across the street, but we like brewing and sipping while getting ready. Not a deal breaker, but one area where the hotel could have improved.

St. Regis Washington gets everything right. Location is 1 block from the White House. Lobby is fantastic. Staff are incredibly well trained and cheerful - no attitude. Rooms are unique, beautiful, everything works perfectly. Beds are incredibly comfortable. Staff seems to intuitively understand who you are and why you are there. Service is perfect, ready to cheerfully help, never creepy or overbearing. The stays here just seem to function as if your stay were a movie and the staff already knows the ending. This property's commitment to keeping the building, the rooms, the utilities, amenities, decor absolutely perfect is almost beyond belief. This is an expensive hotel, folks. Do not gripe about costs. I have never felt like I wasted a penny here. This is an outstanding special-occassion hotel because they treat each and every stay as if you were a visiting head of state, even if its really just a business trip.

Room Tip: This is one of those hotels where they simply do not have "bad rooms". Any one will do.

Just spent the weekend of 4/5-4/7 here. We received a very good AAA "Hot Deal" rate of $255 which was lower than any other hotel in the area including the Hilton garden Inn. This was for a superior room. These rooms are on the small size with a very small bath which have a stall shower and no tub.

As others have said, the location is great and it's a block from the Metro. Other hotels in the same area are the Capital Hilton, Hyatt and Hilton Garden Inn. You should check their prices as well.
