“Big Hotel with a Great Staff, Perfect* for Visiting DC”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

The Grand Hyatt Washington is a very nicely appointed hotel in near Penn Square in DC. The location is perfect for visitors and families touring the National Capital. It is a short walk to many of the highligts.. the National Mall, the Portrait Gallery and the White House.

Despite its size ( 12 floors and a large footfprint) the staff works very hard to make everyone feel comfortable and well serviced. The are several choices for meals in the hotel, but truthfully, there are so many more options ( with lots of price levels) just out side the door. That said, I really enjoyed the breakfast buffet served in the tree lined atrium next to an indoor lagoon.

Other than a couple of minor considerations below, I really enjoyed my stay at the Grand Hyatt and would recommend it to anyone visiting DC for business or a vacation.

*Couple of things to consider.

The hotel provides access to a Health Fit club in an ajoining building. The health club is servicable, but small and very often busy in the mornings, especially early in the week.

On a related note, the pool in the health club is very small. For families with young kids that "need some pool time" as a counter balance to all the walking in the DC sun, you may want to consider other options.

If you get an interior room facing the atrium, remember the early morning sun is pretty bright in DC...so make sure you lower the shades before resting.

Stayed 2 nights after booking on Hotwire. Location was perfect walking distance to museums and white house. Key fact about staying in Washington is make sure Congress is out, room prices plummet, you can stay in a 4 star for a fraction of the cost.

Room Tip: Try to get a view of the atrium, hotel is only 12 floors so can't see much of the city.

My room was a twin double, very clean and comfortable but air con a bit noisy. Staff were exceptional, everyone very helpful and friendly. In hotel Starbucks was useful and great for a quick snack. Didn't eat in the restaurants but they looked nice. I did have in room dining of a salad which came quick and was of a hood quality. I would stay here again.

The Grand Hyatt has a perfect location with walking distance to the Mall, White House and Chinatown. Hotel is quiet despite the central location and the rooms are spacious, modern and clean. The staff is super friendly and best service we have received in DC so far. We will recommend this hotel to anyone whether travelling business, solo, a couple and with children

Very comfortable hotel, centrally located, nice facilities, accommodating staff an excellent fitness center with good hours for working person. I was in DC on business and wanted a hotel that would be easy to get to. The Grand Hyatt is close to many restaurants and other places worth visiting in DC.

I have recently stayed at the Grand Hyatt on two occasions. On the first occasion my room did not meet the cleanliness standards I expected of a 5* hotel. There was a strand of hair on the wall behind the shower for my entire stay and then as I was getting ready to check out I noticed someone elses conference bag was left by the desk in the room. The hotel were quick to respond when I completed the survey and assured me that it was not their usual standard and that this would be addressed.

I have just returned from my second stay, and again the cleanliness was not to what I would expect. The glass shelf in the bathroom had dirty marks on it and the glass top in the room also had desks. Whilst there I actually reached out to the Assistant Director of Rooms who I had previously been in contact with to draw her attention to this. Sadly I got no response.

The hotel is an old hotel and the rooms could all do with an uplift. The air conditioning was very cranky and noisy and the lifts are exceptionally slow. Would certainly recommend rooms on the low floors, if not first floor so you can use the stairs.

The positives on the hotel are it is located in a great area, close to the White House, Washington Monument, National Mall and China Town.
