I stayed at the Park Hyatt Washington D.C. recently for a quick 3 day getaway. I used Hyatt points for the entire stay and was pleasantly surprised to receive an upgrade to a suite upon check-in.
The PH location is approx. mid-point between Georgetown and Dupont Circle districts - approx. a 4-5 block walk to either district. Within the immediate area of the PH there are multiple other 5 star hotels and fine dining - so LOTS of options for eating. That being said, the Blue Duck Tavern restaurant at the PH is fantastic albeit a bit pricy. To get to the National Mall, museums, etc., it is a good 20-25 minute walk - note that there is a Metro station approx. 3 blocks from the PH.
With the upgrade I have to say the suite rivaled any 5-star room that I've stayed anywhere in the world with: spa-style bath and rain shower, large dressing area, nice big windows, and a very soft (not to my liking...) bed. There were robes and slippers, a mini bar stocked with Dean and Deluca snacks, 2 flat screen tv's. The room was clean, well decorated and very comfortable.
The fitness center/spa suite is located on the mezzanine level and is a bit hard to find - with a trip to the 3rd floor on the elevator followed by a long walk to the end of the corridor only to go down the fire stairs 1 level and through a nondescript door into the actual pool/fitness center. The center itself is very nice - excellent equipment and weights, pool and jacuzzi.... just a very strange location within the hotel.
The staff throughout the hotel from check-in to waitstaff to room service attendants to spa staff were just thoroughly professional, efficient and just very nice. The staff made the stay very worthwhile.
I did receive 1 treatment in the spa - the room is very nice, good music and amenities. The therapist was prompt, professional and very attentive to my overall comfort and experience.
My only complaint at all regarding the PH is the price of food and drink - from the $10 mini apple pie (which was FANTASTIC) to the $15 per glass of wine - it was just a bit on the high end.. but then again it is DC and it is a 5 star hotel, so it is to be expected.
This hotel seemed to cater primarily to business and government people, but as a leisure traveler I had no problems during the stay.
Overall I highly recommend the Park Hyatt Washington DC as a great option- just remember you will be paying 5 star prices for 5 star service and amenities - which at this hotel is totally worth it.
