“New fav in DC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

Have stayed at the other 2 Ritz locations in the area and this is my new fav. Stayed w husband and our 2 teenagers. Fantastic corner suite that was huge and had 2 bathrooms. Really nice furnishings. Tucked away on quiet street, but still in the middle of everything in Georgetown. check-in was a breeze and the staff was friendly. Big fan.

Room Tip: Try to snag a corner suite--great sunlight and floor to ceiling windows on 2 full walls.

A little hard for my Uber driver to find but the hotel is a delight. This was my second stay there in two years and it was wonderful. While we expect the Ritz to be top of the line the fact that this is a small, quiet and relaxed hotel makes all the difference.

If you want to get some peace and quiet in a very busy city it'll be hard to beat this Georgetown hotel.

Just an additional comment...On two occasions Mike was my waiter at the restaurant...he is super!

Room Tip: I enjoyed a ground floor room looking out on the terrace. Quiet and private and just down the hall...

We've stayed at several Ritz Carlton properties, and this one did not disappoint. The building is not the typical hotel structure, but the lobby, spa, fitness center, and guest rooms are beautifully appointed. We were greeted with smiles and chilled bottled waters at check-in, and continued to receive an outstanding level of personalized service throughout our four-day stay. The front desk made our Saturday night dinner reservations (no simple task), and the doormen offered us great suggestions for shopping as well as accurate walking directions. They currently have just one restaurant open, but the service and food quality were good and there are dozens of exceptional eateries within a 5 minute walk. The turn-down service included classical music, a 'roaring fire' and a box of chocolates. We will definitely make this hotel our first choice when we return to Georgetown.

So the location is great for shopping and other local Georgetown activities, and the property itself is very attractive and well maintained, but with some notable exceptions, the staff is missing the special something you expect from a Ritz. Despite having stayed at this Ritz a number of times over the past few years, the front desk had no record of our previous stays or preferences. Our booking terms included a complimentary upgrade if available. however, we were told that the hotel was full. When we went to our assigned room, we found that it required further cleaning. After speaking to a different person at the front desk, we were sent to a new room. A suite! Now I suppose it's possible that they received a cancellation in the intervening 10 minutes, but I think the first front desk person simply lied to us about availability. Is this what everyone in Washington does?

A second issue was breakfast, which is served in the bar (!) the kitchen just could not get a simple order straight.( by the way, this is a recurring problem in the sister Ritz property on 21 st street.) a saving grace is that the Food and Beverage Manager was extremely courteous in resolving this matter .

This review is just for the food at the bar. Visited recently with three friends in order to check out the ramen sliders we had read about online. Some folks think they could be DC's take on the next food trend (like the cronut).

The sliders, drinks, and small plates were all delicious but what impressed me more was the fabulous service. The staff couldn't do enough for us from making sure we liked the sliders to chatting about how they compared with the NYC version to bringing over some awesome smores! I loved the chill vibe in the bar and will definitely be back.

Had a conference in DC so we took the entire family down and managed to get a suite at the hotel. Kids were amazed and the staff treated them like family. The only problem was that the kids expected all future hotels to be like the Ritz.

Room Tip: If you have kids get a suite with the pull out bed in the other room.

We stayed here following the Marine Corps Marathon. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is beautiful and the location was convenient to the Metro. There is a Whole Foods within walking distance…great place to pick up a bottle of wine, cup of soup, etc. to enjoy back in the comfort of a beautiful room.
