Hamilton Hotel Washington DC
Ranked #62 of 142 Hotels in Washington DC
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 July 2014

I was very happy with The Hamilton Crowne Plaza. I stayed there for three nights during the 4th of July long weekend. I am a loyal IHG member and the hotel recognised that with a high floor room with a view, late checkout and free wifi.
LOCATION
The hotel is located on 14th Street which leads down to the National Mall and all the museums and monuments you could ever want. It is about 10-15 walk. Macy's is a couple of blocks away. There is a limited range of restaurants and cafés around the hotel but remember this is a national capital so the general area gets a bit quiet after working hours. The nearest subway station is McPherson Square and is only a 5 minute walk. Georgetown is the place to eat. It's just fantastic and only two metro stations away.
ROOM and FACILITIES
My room overlooked the park and was very nicely appointed. The bed and pillows were just wonderful! The bathroom was spacious. I really loved returning to the hotel after a long day. My bar fridge was making some loud and strange noises and the hotel was prompt in attending to it. The wifi was very good. There is a smallish fitness centre but no pool.
FINALLY . . . .
The park across the road is lovely but potentially problematic after nightfall due to the high number of homeless living there. The hotel dining options are limited I think. The Starbucks, while claiming to be full service, has a limited range and it's opening hours are odd. The hotel restaurant is the only other option and it seemed overly busy. Room service was prompt and tasty.

It's hard to know where to stay in Washington. It's good to be close to the National Mall because when you are tired you can come back for a snooze and return when you are ready. On the other hand, Georgetown seemed so lively and interesting at night I wonder if staying there is also a good option. For my part, I was very happy with the Crowne Plaza.

Room Tip: A park view room is good.

My family and I stayed at the Hamilton Crowne Plaza Washington DC on the 4th of July. This was our second stay in DC over the 4th of July, we booked a hotel to enjoy the sites and monuments and to avoid the traffic after the fireworks. The Hamilton hotel is about 0.75 miles from the White House and National Mall, so not a bad walk to the center of everything. We were allowed to check in early and had a room on the 12th floor overlooking Franklin Square park and had a view of the top 1/3 of the Washington Monument. The room had everything we needed and was very clean with modern conviences. Even though it was a busy weekend the staff was extremely accomodating, polite, friendly and professional at all times. We had appetizers in the bar that were very good. We also dined onsite for a delicious breakfast the next morning. We chose to eat outside with a view of the park across the street, the food was delicious, especially the made to order omlettes. Great hotel, Good locatioin for downtown DC and great staff. May stay again next 4th of July. Only negative we experienced was that that valet was slow to get our car, we called ahead, but when we came down they still had our keys. Other than than that car issue, we had a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: Ask for a high level room facing Franklin Square park (south side of building facing washington monu...

My wife and I have just recently returned from another great stay at the Hamilton- Crowne Plaza!! Two things are immediately apparent upon first walking through their door - the lobby/ceiling is very beautiful, and the customer service is terrific!! Although we checked-in rather late, we were immediately welcomed, not only as IHG Platinum members, but as returning guests. It was a warm, gracious welcome! Guests Services was also very helpful and kind, and we received a beautiful, large room! Of course, when you're in DC, you're probably there to explore -- this hotel makes it easy! You'll be within short walking distance of the White House and monuments, as well as shops and restaurants. All in all, a great place to stay!

I was delighted to find a hotel that would accept my month old kitten, who was being bottle fed and needed to travel with me. The hotel is less than a ten minute walk from the Walter E. Convention Center. There are hotels that are closer by, but none that is pet friendly. I had to provide a pet deposit, which seemed like a very reasonable request given the potential for damage. In addition, my room was lovely and the staff helpful; they were very acommodating when I needed a late checkout.

Thus five star hotel is located within walking distance to most major attractions in Washington DC and is priced about half the other five star hotels in the same vicinity and includes a copious breakfast with the best coffee in Washington. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the room was large and very clean, and the hotel is quiet and facing a beautiful park. My wife and I spent 8 nights in the hotel in May 2014 and we loved every minute we spent in Washington DC. Would return to this hotel with pleasure.

Comfortable, well appointed, good service. Came to DC for 4 days and stayed here. Everything was nice. The restaurant was average, but that's another story. Rooms pretty small. Max would be two people.
