“Convenient Location & Good Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

I've had the good fortune of staying at the Melrose on multiple occasions. It has actually become our "Go To" hotel when in D.C. The staff is always helpful and mindful of your needs. We usually stay there for family visits as well as sightseeing tours. The Concierge was wonderful in suggesting local restaurants that give you the flavor of the city but aren't tourist traps. The accommodations are spacious and up to date. The restaurant on site is wonderful for a breakfast to begin your day. There is also a bar there that fit the bill perfectly for cocktails after a long day of sightseeing. If it's sightseeing your in town for this location is very central and also close to a train station. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great value and central location! Enjoy!!!

Room Tip: Corner rooms have the best views!

We stayed at the Melrose from 2-4 April 2014. The front desk on check-in was friendly. The hotel is clean and nice. Room is big and comfortable. Bell and door men were really helpful. Good that they provide complimentary coffee in the morning. Room is quiet.

Cons: Lifts are too small. The cleaner and person were trying to come in to check the bar on our last day even before we check-out.

Overall: Highly recommended, and I will come back!

This hotel has been nicely updated with a chic and modern vibe. The location is superb for walking to Georgetown or walking to ride the metro to travel around the city. Trader Joes across the street was fabulous! Rooms were very clean and quiet. Service was very good to excellent. My sister left a foolish amount of cash in the safe on departure and it was easily found and returned by housekeeping. A return here would be a pleasure!

Room Tip: We were on street side and no problem with noise.

I stay in DC a lot for business and the hotels are really expensive! My assistant found the Melrose on GetaRoom.com (also a great sight). We didn't have to guess what it would be like as you do on Priceline (which was really bad news last time). I will stay here again!

We stayed at the Melrose for a week and had a very comfortable stay. What made the experience really stand out for me was the warmth of the staff--they were always friendly and helpful, going the extra mile to help whenever they can. The room was spacious, clean, and quiet. There's a Whole Foods nearby for food and the room had a fridge so it was great to be able to buy a few drinks, fruits, and yogurt and have them around. The location is also very convenient for accessing many sites in DC. The tea and coffee in the lobby every morning was much appreciated, especially as it was so cold.

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.

Thank you Milton L, for sharing your experience at Melrose Georgetown Hotel. We strive to provide optimal service for our guests and we are so glad to hear we could accommodate for your stay. Our farm-to-fork dining at Jardenea promises only fresh ingredients from local purveyors. I will look into finding where the breakdown in our dining and wireless internet service happened and hope to see you again on your next visit to the Capitol.

This is a first rate hotel. I stay here frequently when traveling to DC.

Large, clean, tastefully-decorated rooms. Excellent breakfast. Be sure to have the different varieties of Eggs Benedict.

Near Foggy Bottom Metro station.

Great nearby restaurants.

Good for both business and pleasure.
