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.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
just make a turn left from the main lobby onto Penn Avenue, cross the bridge and you will be in Georgetown
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
We went to Washington DC to visit the Cherry Blossom festival and downtown exhibits. Metro rail right around the corner so we gave the car to valet for parking. With Metros easy access to sights of DC we had fun. Staff was very friendly and
helpful giving information and recommendations. Room was very clean and though we were on a major street we did not hear a sound from traffic. We would recommend this hotel and will go back. Only problem was getting our car back from valet parking took close to 45 minutes when we checked out and we could not find many small kid friendly restaurants nearby(within short walking distance). There was a restaurant and nice small pub-like bar within the hotel. Usual food and looked very nice and good but we wanted to eat out of the hotel.
