We stayed in this hotel based on all the positive feedback from TripAdvisor. We went to DC for 6 days with my family and 2 children plus my mom and husband's parents. I stayed here mainly because of the location to the White House.
This hotel is beautiful and it has everything you would want in a luxury hotel including turndown service.
One of the concierges, Lida made Thanksgiving reservations and booked transportation to and from the hotel before our trip began. Well done and something a hotel of this stature thankfully provides. The other concierges there were equally as helpful, booking hotel reservations and offering directions with their endless supplies of maps.
The rooms are small, but a perfect size for me, especially since I booked an adjacent room for our children in the bedroom next door. The bedding is comfortable, however, the mattress was just a bit on the lumpy side with indentations along the edges on the king. Each room had a snack and beverage refrigerator and a IPHONE/IPOD docking station. King bed rooms have a couch and double do not. My children, especially my son loved the second TV being built in behind the mirror in the bathroom. Keep your toiletries inside your makeup bag….there is no room for them on the cramped bathroom countertops. There also aren’t any drawers either. Again, I’m thankful we booked the children in another room.
High speed internet: Yes,,there is high speed internet but there is a substantial charge. Plus, unlike other hotels I have stayed in, you cannot use your paid access for both your IPHONE and you IPAD. The charge is PER device. I did not like this at all as my husband and I have 2 IPHONES + the IPAD. There is no reason to charge for each device. Internet access is free in the lobby, however, we really preferred to use them in our rooms.
One thing we did not like with the hotel was the work-out room. It was very small and the room had a terrible echo to it. It was in the basement, and like added amenities in older hotels, this was an afterthought. Unfortunately, we went by the Ritz Carlton and the Fairmont in Georgetown and their gyms were amazing. The Fairmont had a Jacuzzi and pool plus a spa. I really should have done my homework and selected something like this as I was so sore after walking around Washington all day! The children would also had something to do in the evenings as well. I loved the St Regis for its location but frankly, we had to take cabs to get out to most of our destinations anyways. Staying in Georgetown wouldn’t have been an issue at all. I only found out later by reading the hotel book in the room that we could have worked out in a place 2 blocks away for $15 a day. I wish I knew about that before, while not very convenient, it was a nice option.
At 6pm in the lobby, don’t forget to be there for a complimentary glass of Champagne. Unless you’re a business traveler getting your expenses covered by your corporation, you’ll recoil at the prices of an alcoholic beverage in the bar or even the price of your breakfast. Even though we do pretty well, the breakfast prices were alarming. Take note: There are no prices for children or children’s menus. A real shame because we would have loved to try the restaurant in the evening where it sat mostly empty.
Another note regarding children: There are no welcoming amenities for children upon check-in. Something that the Ritz does well is offering these. It’s just a nice touch.
