“Wonderful location, great overall hotel.”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

My husband and I stayed here for three days while visiting sites in DC and Georgetown. The room was very comfortable; the staff people all were kind and helpful, and went out of their way to make us feel welcome without being overly solicitous. The hotel is located within walking distance to DC and Georgetown.. Next door is a nice convenience grocery, and just a few blocks away is Whole Foods. The hotel has its own restaurant , too.

Room Tip: We had a corner room and it was lovely, quiet, and spacious.

The Melrose is a great find. The staff is friendly, the hotel is clean and quiet. The shower actually had water pressure! Conveniently located between Georgetown and a straight walk down Pennsylvania Avenue to all the sites. If you like to walk, you can get to everything, but if you prefer the Metro, Foggy Bottom is minutes away. No pool and didn't visit the fitness center. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed in June for a sightseeing trip as Washington was on my 'to do' list. Managed to get a good deal and got a suite. Room was large with seperate bedroom and living area on the 7th floor over the main entrance. The location was great with just a 10 minute walk to georgetown and the foggy bottom metro a 5 minute walk. Staff were all very friendly and were able to book tours and give information and advice of places to go. The hotel has a nice bar in the lobby and a gym . It is opposite one of the best restaurants in DC. It was a great base for exploring the city and I wou,d happily stay here again .

I drove an hour to get to this hotel which I had a reservation for and they tell me that we are over sold and we will pay for you to stay at the Holiday Inn that was cheaper and so not my taste at all! Thank goodness the people at the Holiday were sweet even though the room sucked, but Melrose made my first trip to Georgetown a disaster! Check in at 3pm or they will give your room away!

Thank you for staying with us here at the Melrose Georgetown Hotel for your recent travels to the Georgetown area. I sincerely apologize that your room was unavailable upon your arrival, I can understand how disconcerting that can be. Unfortunately we had guests already in-house who decided to stay over causing the hotel to become oversold. It is our policy to find the nearest comparable hotel and cover the charges for the inconvenience. I hope that we have the pleasure of accommodating you on your future travels to Georgetown, please contact me directly next time your travels bring you to the area and I be more than happy to provide personalized service.

Regards,
Jale Hashimi

From the moment we arrived the doors were opened by the door men with a smile and a hello, the reception team were outstanding, cheerful helpful and could speak several languages. We asked to change room as we had booked a king and given two queen beds and they did with no problem, both rooms were amazing, big tastefully decorated a bed I didn't want to leave and a large bathroom with great toiletries (all Moulton Brown), there was an ironing board and fridge in the rooms and large TV with a great choice of channels.

The hotel is a short walk to the metro in one direction and the same up to Georgetown where there are a lot of bars and restaurants.

Happy to recommend and will be back next time i'm in DC

I've stayed at several DC hotels over the years and was very pleased with many of the aspects of this hotel. The hotel is not perfect but has nearly everything in place to reach that higher level.

The goods outweighed the negatives. The goods (and greats) included a very large room and bathroom, an extremely comfortable bed (one of the best that I've had recently); great bath amenities (though no soap in shower; only shower gel which was fine); great towels and nice design elements. Very clean room.

I did eat in the restaurant which has a great reputation for farm to table -- my salmon entree did not disappoint. However, at the later hour, there was only one server for everyone and I had to ask for bread and to have my water glass refilled (again, minor and can be addressed). My dinner of a salad at the bar the next night was overdressed.

The areas to improve: Several of the lights in my room did not work; the internet was slow; and some elements of the room looked not quite finished (as though items on a punch list were not complete). We had to get our own taxis in front; the staff was busy. The hotel would benefit from having some additional workers.

A colleague on the first floor noted that her toilet overflowed badly flooding her bathroom. She also said that there was a lot of noise late at night outside her room from nearby bars.

All in all, this is a very nice hotel and one that I would use again in the future.

Room Tip: Based on my colleague's experience, perhaps a room on a higher floor would be better.
