I was attempting to get a room in DC on (evidently too) short notice right before a city-wide convention (damn you, ACC!). I spent literally hours calling places, and when I tried the Melrose Georgetown, LaTonya couldn't have been nicer. She talked me into booking the first night even though the next two couldn't be confirmed at that point, but she was confident enough that it would work out. It was one day at a time, but we did indeed stay all three nights (the last night at, not surprisingly, a jacked-up price, thank you Parker), and with an upgraded room.
The hotel was certainly fine - the fitness center was a little small, but nicely modern. The flavored water in the lobby always a welcome touch. The breakfast in the restaurant was very good, although the service not so nice. The desk personnel were adequately helpful in terms of recommendations. And LaTonya was, of course, a joy to deal with.The location is great - two blocks to the Metro, easy walk to Georgetown.
The only thing that was particularly problematic was the internet service - we were at the far end of the hall - which was almost unusable. Must have been the location of the router, since it was great in the lobby.
