  1. Great hotel location and close to major tourist areas and shopping. Room was a little dirty in places, but nothing major. The bathroom mirror still had water spots. Desk was dusty and chair had crumbs in it. The shower head was not adjustable and shoots straight out instead of downward. You may not get told at check in what the amenity fee includes. If you ask, they will give you a paper, so you will know what you are entitled to. There is a Starbucks and restaurant inside the hotel. Hotel serves breakfast for free if you are a high level Hyatt member or you can pay for it. The gift shop offers a variety of items, not just souvenirs.
    Self parking garage is also connected to hotel. It costs $45/day with no in and out privileges. Valet is $62/day, but does include unlimited in and out. The garage elevator goes straight up to hotel lobby. The Metro station is in basement area of hotel and easily accessible to get to and from hotel. Staff was super friendly.

  2. The Grand Hyatt is a very large hotel near Chinatown, just a couple blocks from Capital One Arena. They have a covered car pull through if you are arriving by car which is nice in case of bad weather but can get a bit busy as it doesn’t seem anyone really is directing people. Once inside the check in desk is to the left rear of the very large lobby. The front desk staff is very nice and efficient. We were able to get checked in very quickly and able to get to our room with ease. The elevators are at the back of the lobby. There were about 6 elevators so you don’t have to wait long to catch one. The room is very spacious and very comfortable with a very nice sitting chair as well as a desk. We had a king bed and it was very comfortable, though one extra pillow would have been nice as there were three pillows so if there are two people both could have two. The bathroom is nice as well with good shower with perfect amount of water pressure. One thing you will notice is that in the hallways and lobby areas they are pumping a scent through the ventilation system. While I found it very nice others may be turned off by it. Overall it was a good hotel in a great location.

  3. I really liked my room here — modern yet cozy, with comfy beds and a cool view into the lovely atrium. Huge TV, cute little mini-fridge with a window so you’re somewhat less likely to forget things in it.

    The bathroom was very spacious, not the claustrophobic closet you so often get, and the shower was easy to adjust, something else I’ve found is not always true.

    There was a little confusion checking in because of how my school was paying for the rooms, but the front desk staff were very pleasant and helpful and did a great job of resolving the issue. Every interaction I had with the front desk staff was friendly and efficient — great hospitality.

    There are also enough elevators to serve the place effectively even when it’s busy, which may seem like a small thing, but if you have ever stayed in a large hotel without enough elevators, you know what a huge inconvenience it can be.

    The hotel is also a very short walk from Chinatown, the convention center, various Smithsonian buildings, and the National Mall, as well as plenty of good restaurants.

    My only tiny complaints are that the elevators are all at one end of the atrium, and my room was at the exact opposite end, so it was a bit of a walk to my room or the elevators every time I went out. That, and there’s a strangely small number of channels available on the hotel’s cable service, but those are pretty minor things compared to all the good stuff. The hotel isn’t cheap, but if you can afford it, it’s worth it. I’d stay again without hesitation.

  4. I stayed here for Otakon 2022 and I have some thoughts on my stay. The location is great. It’s right between the convention center and Chinatown. The room was decent and the bed was comfortable but the blankets were thin. The bathroom was nice but it didn’t have one of those fans you put in to get rid of the humidity and steam from the shower. I had stayed here because I had seen online there was a pool but the site wasn’t clear in stating that they had removed it when they renovated so I called the concierge desk to double check and when I called from the room phone nobody picked up and it went to voicemail after 4-5 rings. I called the front desk using my cellphone and finally someone answered and told me that they no longer had a pool. The staff was nice but one night we came in late and we wanted to take a second to sit in the lobby to cool off before going up to our room but security basically shooed us out the lobby as if we were loitering even though we clearly had our room keys with us so we could prove that we were paying guests. We checked out the buffet for breakfast and we loved that. The food was amazing! When it came time to pick up my bags from bag check the gentleman who took care of me was really nice and helpful. All in all this is a good hotel. I would like to stay again and hopefully next time the staff will be a bit nicer and more on the ball. Having a call from my room go to voicemail is not good. Apart from the room needing a more modern update and some thicker blankets the room definitely suited my needs. We’ll see what happens next time!

  5. Came to DC for a conference for 3 nights. When we checked in, the staff at the front desk was very nice and understanding. Lobby felt very luxurious and relaxing, and I stayed there for at least 3 hours just resting during the entire trip. The room was nice, it was decently spacious and the TV displayed a welcome screen greeting me. Beds were comfortable, but I did find a hair or two under the blankets which was personally a bit sickening, but the other bed was fine so maybe it was just my luck. Occasionally on the tables, walls, chairs, etc., there was a visible decay/wear and tear on them. Another issue was that at nighttime, the room was always dark even though every single light was on. However I don’t know if this applies to any other rooms. Bathroom was also decent, with the typical complimentary shampoo/soap/conditioner you would find at any other hotel. The shelves and such in the bathroom also had the same wear and tear I described earlier. The windows for all the rooms have a sticker on it that shows you a “iconic location” near the hotel and how many steps away it is, which is a fun addition. For breakfast, the hotel offers food at the Cabinet which is reached by going down a short escalator located in the lobby. The waiters and other staff were nice, and did their job well. There is a buffet in the Cabinet and it offered plenty of delicious food choices. For dinner they serve food at the Cure Bar and Bistro, which is another nice restaurant. Food was good, staff was nice, and place was clean.

    I know it sounds odd, but trust me when I say that the entire hotel smelled so good. As soon as we entered it had a strong sort of fruity/exotic smell and it was just really pleasant. It made you want to stay for longer.

    When I checked out, the same lady that helped is check in was again very nice.

    The best part about this hotel is probably the location. It’s located very close to Chinatown and to metro stations, and it’s decent walking distance away from popular tourist locations and other attractions. For example, if you wanted to go to the zoo you could just walk to the nearest metro station for like 2 minutes, get a ticket, ride for at most 10 minutes, get off and walk to the zoo entrance for 10 minutes.

    Overall this hotel is pretty good, would recommend if you are staying in the area for short vacations/business trips.

    I have now stayed here twice and enjoyed my visit to Washington. Last time in September it was phenomenal. Great service, very clean, and overall very relaxing. This time it everyone was nice (especially at 12 o’clock at night), but when we got to our room there were left over rose petals on the floor and smudges on the front of the sink. This made me concerned about the cleanliness of the sheet, tables, etc. thus making me do a scan of the rest of the room before jumping into bed. Due to there being an epidemic I would only assume that cleanliness was a top priority…. Otherwise I enjoyed my stay it’s great walking distance from the hotel to monuments as well as Museums.

    I’ve stayed at this hotel the last few times I’ve been in DC and it’s never a miss. The location is perfect. The rooms may be on the smaller side but they are well maintained and clean. The staff are always pleasant. I’ve been intentionally working on building up my status with the Marriott Bonvoy brand and it pays off. I had an early morning flight into DC and got in around 6am. I didn’t expect them to have a room ready for me but they did! I was able to take a nap before going out for the day. The lobby is decorated beautifully for the holidays. The bar and breakfast area are nice.

    I thought I’d done a review but maybe not….Anyway, was here a few weeks ago for a conference sponsored by Amazon. This is indeed a 5star hotel! From the time I walked through the door until my last day, I was impressed! I would definitely recommend & the view from my room was just spectacular, especially at night!!
    Best Marriott I’ve been in so far.

    Stay was decent. Definitely overpriced. Parking is horrible- it’s valet only and $63 a night. No discounts for longer stays. The valet service workers are also poor. They would allow some cars to sit in the circle drive blocking traffic for a while and they yelled at us to pull out even though there were oncoming cars to make room for more cars to pull in. The public bathrooms were dirty. They had no available water bottles or vending machines of sorts in a huge hotel for night time water. Our shower was also slightly broken but I didn’t want to complain because it would take hours of them working on it. To me, it’s like a fake nice hotel, where the decor looks fancy, but things are falling apart. Also as I was staying there, I found many stains in my room. Stains on curtains and the bed sheets. Looked like brownish reddish stains and black scuff marks. Even if they have been washed it’s still gross and should just be given new ones.

    Beautiful hotel, walking distance to all the monuments and the White House. Do not waste your money on a rental car because its easier to walk and not have to worry about parking. Excellent location and staff, will recommend giving this place a try when in Washington, DC.

    Beautiful hotel. Tradition and old Washington charm surround you. Next to the White House.
    Built in 1918 there are so many beautiful details.
    Don’t miss the Famous round robin bar.

    Check in with seamless and the customer service was exceptional. The rooms are spotless and much of the staff has been here for generations. I highly recommend this hotel.

    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Kelly McCarthy (6 months ago)
    Staying at the Willard Hotel is a sublime experience! This is my second time (08/22) staying here. The last time was back in 07/08. Nevertheless, the Willard’s standards of excellence have not slipped! We stayed in a standard room which was clean and well-stocked with Nespresso coffees and tees. The bed was firm yet comfortable. The linens and pillows were soft, and there were plenty of deluxe towels.The magnificent lobby and first level are filled with plenty of history. The hotel even has its own museum. The historical Round Robin bar still serves excellent cocktails. Don’t forget to look up at the gold leaf ceiling lobby to find your state’s emblem. Very impressive to see all 50 states represented! We will certainly stay at The Willard when we return to Washington. You are centrally located to all major sites and are 1,500 feet from The White House.

    Fantastic Location in the heart of historical Washington D.C. Our upgraded suite on the 3rd floor had a nice view of the Washington Monument from the living room part of the suite. The White House is within 600 feet of the front door of the hotel. Likewise, other major monuments are within walking distance. The Cafe Du Parc and Round Robin Bar had cold drinks and delicious small plates and entrees. The staff was friendly and incredibly accommodating. We travelled with 2 small children ( both under 3 ) and were welcomed by a family friendly environment. Clean rooms, comfortable beds and large marble shower with gold accents. 10/10 recommend for family travel looking to see/walk Washington D.C.
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Niki Franclemont (4 months ago)
    We spent the night here before the Easter egg roll at the white house. It was exceptional. Easy to get in everything was right up front. You do pay for a premium but due to the location it was well worth it. The room was clean and nice. We had the high tea and that was quite the experience. If you go during the Cherry blossom festival we have the option of drinking tea with the Cherry blossom cuttings and that was quite the experience. I would highly recommend this. We only had pastries and coffee from the cafe and they were good. It is a five-star hotel.
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Hugh Shoff (6 months ago)
    Beautiful hotel, lovely and helpful staff that make you feel cared for. Everything is high quality and ornate. The only issue I had were the toilet and shower. The toilet had super low water pressure and had to be flushed in a certain way to work, and there was no hot water in the shower. None at all. The hottest it got was barely lukewarm. I think it’s because the pipes are older? That put a little damper on the trip but I still enjoyed my stay.

    EDIT: Unfortunately, the hotel never reached out to me as promised (even though they said they would in their response to this review). I sent them another follow up email, it was read, but no response. The Watergate has lost its customer service flair. If they do reach out to me and offer an appropriate resolution after all of this, I will edit this review. Until then, I cannot recommend you stay here in good faith.

    Original Review posted early September:

    I am posting this review after trying to reach the hotel directly and I feel ignored. The staff was very nice, but there were several problems:
    • We were advertised a higher floor (and upgrade if available), we were never offered it like we normally are.
    • Housekeeping didn’t come so we had to call and they were four hours late which delayed our dinner reservation.
    • We didn’t have a coffee maker so we had to buy room service coffee.
    • Room service breakfast was incredibly expensive and for $9 for Turkey bacon, you only get 3 small strips.
    • The hot water went out on our last day during a shower.
    • The checkout system crashed while checking out.
    • Non-working AC.

    I’m hoping the hotel can make this right, because this was an unacceptable experience for what we paid.

    By Reid (a month ago)
    Good location, the service was excellent. I think the hotel prices are a bit steep however given there are other options within the same price range with slightly better location and rooms. The bar was really expensive too, about $18 for a 4 ounce glass of wine. I completely understand the price range for a craft cocktail but thought that was a little too pricey just for wine. I’m giving the hotel 4 stars because of that but the customer service and friendliness of the staff is exceptional!
    ✭✭✭✭ By Cynthia T (2 weeks ago)
    The Watergate Hotel was everything we were looking for. The Hotel was clean and the staff was friendly and attentive from the moment we arrived at the valet to checkout. The indoor, saltwater pool and hot tub was a great way to relax after exploring the local area. The waterfront view from our room was beautiful.

    The location of the hotel was great. Located right near the water in Foggy Bottom, we had walking access to many restraints and attractions along the water included water sports and the Kennedy Center.

    One of the main reasons why we chose the hotel was the amenities inside the hotel. The King Bird had a wonderful brunch and friendly service.

    The Top of the Gate roof bar had extraordinary views of the waterline and Georgetown. Definitely make a reservation. The cocktail and food prices were definitely on par with a five star hotel. It’s not cheap but you pay for the view. Our biggest disappointment was the presentation of the cocktails in plastic containers with a lot of ice. We expected proper glassware and presentation when paying $35-$100 a drink.

    The Next Whiskey Bar instantly caught our eye as the illuminated bottles wrap around the bar area in the main lobby. It was beautiful and the selection was large. However, The service was extremely slow and unfortunately both bartenders were starting their first day on a busy Saturday afternoon. That didn’t make sense to us but understand the service industry is understaffed. Our server was friendly, but we were disappointed to go through over 10 different bourbons and scotches that were listed on the menu but not available. This experience really tested our patience as we were trying to grab a drink before a dinner reservation and had to keep walking up to the bar to attempt to order a drink that wasn’t available. It ended up taking us a full hour to get one drink ordered and received. It’s worth checking out, maybe next time the servers will be better trained and have an updated menu.

    Overall, I would definitely recommend the Watergate Hotel and hope we can return for another visit. We just hope that some of the small details and services could be refined by next time.

    ✭✭✭✭ By Eric (3 months ago)
    This is NOT a 5 star hotel. Luxury is my jam and this is not it! Ghost town front desk/staff. No updates. Dirty carpet. Extremely rude staff (with the exception of bell/valet and housekeeping staff) I feel fully ripped off and will not recommend this hotel. 3 restaurants/bars but none open until 4:30PM. Views and “Watergate” nostalgia will not make up for your very underwhelming and disappointing experience. Broken AC, broken mini fridge, a bedside light that wouldn’t turn off and forced late check-in were just a few of our experiences. Maintenance was called to our room twice in 1 hour (12am). No one answers the front desk, I know that seems strange (and it is) but it’s real. We had a moment of possible redemption at the Top of the Gate but … then we didn’t … hours are posted as being open until 12PM but we literally had the lights turned off on us at 10:55PM. When we asked the bartender what was up, he was incredibly rude and rambled on about our insensitivity to the pandemic??? ??‍? Which was weird and confusing. I politely complained, they offered me $100 compensation. I fully expect for their ratings to go down and am now baffled and curious as to how this hotel classified as 5 stars. I’m also curious about the 4.3 google rating? Potential but squandered redemption at every turn. The breakfast was good but extremely over-priced. The issues at The Watergate Hotel run deep and will not be fixed overnight. Oh, the concierge was helpful before we arrived, too.
    By Hannah Cruz (3 months ago)
    From the moment I arrived every single staff person I encountered was above and beyond. They were kind, enthusiastic, and helpful. I think it must say a lot about the culture of working there how that kind of service was present in everyone I met. The decor and rooms were of course incredible, but I will remember how everyone made me feel like a celebrity even though I was just a regular person there to attend a conference.

    Make sure to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙᴏʟʟʏ.ᴄᴏm when booking your hotel. They compare thousands of booking web sites and typically will have prices much cheaper than others! Thank me later on! This resort is one of my favorites in the area. I’ve been staying here for years. If you choose this place you definitely will love it I’m sure!

    Our family has celebrated many special occasions at this property. The entire staff, especially Nicole, are the absolute best! They always remember us and provide the most impeccable care during our visits! I highly recommend this property, the ambiance and amazing staff ensure we always return!

    Amazingly chill place and not nearly expensive as I thought it would be. Sure, there’s a $1000 steak, which I’m pretty sure is just for rich people to show off how stupidly rich they are, but there’s also more affordable options. The staff is extremely attentive, but also leave you alone in perfect balance. The duck fries are bonkers good. Bathroom is a little hard to find- it’s downstairs and there aren’t really any signs.

    I would highly recommend the Four Seasons in Georgetown. The staff is so amazing and the Concierges is out of this world. They helped us get tickets to all the places that we wanted to go around town and went above and beyond on places that didn’t have availability to try to get us tickets. Also the rooms are incredible! I can’t say enough about the service and the quality of the hotel.
