The Graham Georgetown

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Small hotel with beautifully decorated rooms and great service (the doormen, in particular, are very helpful with good information about where to eat and how to get places). Georgetown is a lovely neighborhood and very walkable, even to the White House. Be sure to get reservations for The Alex speakeasy on Saturday with live jazz. And, speaking of jazz, on late Sunday morning we were serenaded by a violinist playing classical music on the street corner. Beautiful.

This is my fourth stay at the Graham and now when I fly in I feel like I am at home. The staff is so warm and friendly...from the doormen to Mark, the manager! They go out of their way to make my stay as comfortable as possible. They sent me a congratulatory fruit platter when I had a presentation to give. I was so touched! The room I stay in is the King Luxury Suite and is quite spacious. It has a sitting area with a TV, couch and room to do my yoga! There is a desk and comfy chair in the bedroom with plenty of drawer and hanging storage for my clothes. Their is a minibar and a Keurig with Starbuck pods. The beds are so comfortable! If I had to say one negative thing it would be the towels - they could be softer. The lobby of the hotel is chic while being warm and inviting. Their Speak Easy has a cozy atmosphere and excellent food. They also have roof top bar that is always filled with fun people and excellent staff. Cant’ wait to go back in March!

Great service, perfect location, very nice rooms. It has an speakeasy bar at the basement, sometimes with live music, and another bar in the terrace. I have gone to The Graham 3 years in a row. I have always asked for the same room I stayed the first time and they have always given it to me. Will keep going :-)

I had booked this hotel on the app Hotel Tonight which was the easiest hotel app I ever used. I loved the app because I gave me a great price but also let me know which hotels offered upgrades. I like to normally book a suite so I don't often use hotel booking apps until I discovered Hotel Tonight. The front desk at the Graham had my prepaid reservation ready and let me check in early. The Hotel is located on the edge of Georgetown so you can easily walk into D.C. if you would like and is only a little over a block from the water front. The Graham is a smaller hotel which I love so it feels more intimate. The room was well appointed with a very nice bathroom, large shower and L'Occitaine amenities. I will definitely stay here again.

Staff were great, giving us good suggestions for local food. We were given an upgraded room which was a good surprise when we arrived. Good location in Georgetown. Lincoln Memorial is 1.5 miles which is very walkable. The nearest Metro is about half way, at Foggy Bottom.

Nice hotel. Very friendly service. Loved the terrace. Great restaurant downstairs and cool decoration. No problems with the room and perfect location if you like shopping and jogging with a pretty view.

This hotel is brilliant. I stayed in room 308 and it had a fantastic personal terrace. The speakeasy downstairs is a great touch and reception even gives a passcode to enter it, adding to the sense of authenticity. It’s also very conveniently located and the start of a nice run to the sites.

(Room 705 )corner room overlooking M street) I️ believe there were 5 windows which was great! Lots of natural light. The staff is very friendly! We arrived a little early and they allowed us to check in right away. 1. The hotel is very clean and rooms are simple yet classy. There were some things in the room that stood out.... the black marks on the curtains, mildew in the grout, furniture is a little beat up but nothing major. The beds were pretty comfortable. 2. Location is great... just steps to m street with shopping and plenty of restaurants. We actually walked all of sites from Georgetown. We figured we walked about 8 miles that day but we walked to the White House, monuments, etc. 3. Heat/Windows. The heat was off in our room for over a day and we didn’t even realize the controls were there to turn it on. When I️ asked at the front desk they had the building engineer come up immediately and he showed us how to use it. None of the windows seem to close securely so there some cool drafts. However the bed was nice and warm with a nice comforter and sheets and the heat warmed up the room just fine. 4. We briefly saw the rooftop bar from the elevator. It looks amazing. However, they understandably closed it because of the frigid temperatures. I️ was not too keen on the idea that admission to the bar is at the hostess discretion (stated on their website). Kind of ridiculous but it wasn’t open anyway so I wasn’t able to experience this. we asked the woman at the front desk about the rooftop bar and she just said it was closed. When asking for another recommendation she sent us around the corner instead of mentioning the speakeatery, Alex, that was just steps away. We later found out it was there and you need a secret door code (kind of silly because they hand it out a code to anyone who asks for it). 5. The hotel was pretty quiet considering it’s in a busy section of town and we knew there were others on our floor. However- I️d be interested to see how loud it is on the 7th floor when the rooftop bar is open in warm weather. 6. There is Zero water pressure in the sinks. I️ read this in another review on TripAdvisor but brushed it off. However, the shower water pressure was okay. 7. Valet parking fee. I️ know that parking is expensive in DC but to charge hotel guests over $50 per night when there is $13/24 hour parking (on the weekends only) is a little ridiculous. I️ did not move the car on Saturday but wish I️ had. 8. The doorman was awesome! He’s super friendly and helpful! Overall I was very happy with our stay. My first choice was the four seasons but I️ couldn’t justify spending the extra $ when this hotel was fine for our purpose.

Love the Graham. The staff are very attentive to my needs, friendly and professional. The rooms are very comfortable. The rooftop bar is a great place to hang out, have a drink and has amazing views of Georgetown. I stay here whenever I travel to DC

Great location and very helpful staff. Breakfast in house is too expensive Pillows too thick - need some thin ones so can mix and march Room is a generous size and well equipped Need to make clear that use Hilton Honors Wi-fi
