Great DC Hotel

The hotel location is perfect, 2 blocks from the foggy bottom metro station and 5 blocks away from Georgetown. It has a cool decor and the rooms are much larger than many other much pricier hotels!!

good expert blanket and air-condition

The blanket is not very good. It has some small holes on it. And the air-condition is pretty loud when its on.

good location

great location and very nice staff. The room was not what was in any of the pictures, and it was very hot. I tried to adjust the temperature, but it didn't work. Also, the lock was not working properly, the key did not work even after someone came to service it.

Perfect DC Value

I was able to get a great rate at the Melrose and I was very impressed by the quality of the room and the service for what I paid. I would definitely stay here again. Location is within walking distance of M Street in Georgetown.

NYE 2012/2013

We got a great rate here for NYE 2012/2013. My girlfriend and I had a very nice room with a king sized bed. The staff was very helpful in helping us get a cab to our NYE party. The hotel itself is near George Washington University. McFaddens bar is across the street for those looking for something to do. For late night food, Dominos will deliver to the hotel too. Valet parking is $40, but on a busy weekend night, it's easier than having to park and walk.

Comfortable and clean

Can't beat the price- less than $150 for New Years Eve. Staff was friendly, everything was clean. Had a nice, big room and the mattress was quite comfortable. Arrived at 2am and had no problems checking in and getting the room.

Nice Place, close to Metro

Nice place, close to Metro and many restaurants and George Washington University. The pillows were not the best but the room was comfortable otherwise. [...] advertised free parking on the weekends however the hotel only has valet parking which was $38 for the night.

Time-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

You can walk to the Mall from the hotel, rather then wait 45 minutes for the $30.00 double decker tour bus.

Disappointing stay!

Staff could not find our reservation when we got there. They finally found it after about 30 minutes of searching which was a bit disgruntling. The bathroom was not clean. Towels were dirty and bathtub did not drain. This is not a hotel I will consider staying in again in Georgetown. On a positive note, the valet staff was very friendly and helpful!. Not a good example for the Melrose hotels that are usually first class.
