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.
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.
