I stayed at the Washington Duke for a conference. Since i live less than an hour away I've never had to desire to check it out before. Its amazing. While the hotel looks like most other upscale places the services remind you that you are in a nice location. The walls of the hotel are decorated by Duke family memorabilia, There golf course is out behind the Bull Durham bar so you can sit on the patio and look out. Service details are everywhere, from doorman ready with umbrellas to get you to your car, waiters who will bring your drinks to you outside when you started inside but didn't say a word, to the staff that when you walk by them looking lost will direct point you int he right direction or even walk with you and chat about the Duke family.
The room itself was large there was no tub but the shower was very large and had a small seat. rooms included bathrobes and an umbrella to use if needed during your stay there was also a Keurig machine in the room.
I did not dine in the restaurant themselves, but I did have food off the menus. good but not overly amazing. I would argue that was the one area that the hotel was lacking. It was not bad food just I know where to get better locally.
