Great location

We spent 5 nights and found the location great, the rooms were larger than most with comfortable beds. Work out room was great too. Only a couple blocks from Foggy Bottom metro station and not that far if you would like to walk down 23rd to the Lincoln Memorial. It's about a 30 minute walk but not bad. Has a nice sandwich shop nearby for snacks and meals to take with you on your walk thru DC

Great Hotel!

We had a great two night stay at this hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean, modern and in a great location to Georgetown as well as other major locations. The hotel was right by the waterfront and there were some great restaurants in the area. The metro was a block away. I have no complaints for this hotel other than the pricey overnight parking fee. Overall, I would stay here again and I highly recommend it!

Great hotel and location for a weekend in DC

My boyfriend and I were in town for a half marathon in DC. We needed a hotel that was convenient to the metro. The Melrose is just around the corner from the Foggy Bottom metro. It is also walking distance to the shops and restaurants in Georgetown. The hotel was very clean, had a modern vibe, and the beds were very comfortable. Can't beat the value of this hotel for the comfort and convenience.

Old school elegance

The hotel was beautiful. The staff was incredibly attentive without being cloying. The lobby and lounge are stunning. The rooms are large by DC standards and very well laid out and appointed. The bathroom/dressing room are lovely. I would definitely stay here again.

It would have been perfect, had it not been for teh Valet

I loved the location, the staff was VERY friendly and helpful. I the $48 overnight parking took us by surprise, but because of the location and the holiday weekend; I only paid the $48 for the first night and parked my car in the street. BTW, the staff did recommend that I park in the street.

Walk the Georgetown shops and check out Sprinkles for cupcakes. Also Trader Joes is practically across the street, wish I would have seen it when I was there instead of when I was leaving...
