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.

Pretty/Clean/Small

This was my second stay at The Melrose, and I'll probably book there again because the location is perfect and the price is great. The room was perfectly clean and attractive and the staff is professional, though not friendly. It is great if you have only one person in a room. The rooms are very small and the bathroom is tiny, so I wouldn't recommend it for couples or families.

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.

Very Nice- Staff very friendly

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.

Friendly and helpful staff, great value

Visited DC on school break with wife, daughter and mother. Took 2 rooms. Had late check-in (11pm), clerk went to great lengths to get us 2 nice rooms close to each other. 7th floor king deluxe room was specially and surprisingly nice, especially at the price. Doorman was helpful throughout our visit. Buffet breakfast (not included in our booking) was good, service ok. Had dinner at Library restaurant both nights - food and service were good. I found management to be very interested and responsive. Comment made at dinner on first night was immediately acted on by the time that we returned for dinner the second night. Desk manager was very helpful with earlier than reserved checkout. We will stay here when we return to DC.

great location with friendly staff

The location is easy to get to and only a short walk to the Foggy Bottom metro station. the staff are all very friendly. We only stay there for one night for a weekend trip, and we wanted to have breakfast on Sunday around Georgetown so we can shop around there. However, the staff recommend a franchise for breakfast. We ended up asking the locals. They direct us to a place call "Peacock Cafe", which they had great food and great service. I would stay at the hotel again.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

walkable distance to the Reflective Pool and to the Mall (where all the museums are) - but they closes at 5:30pm. Should get on metro check out the museums first THEN walk to the reflective pool.
