The Melrose Georgetown Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Staff very friendly and helpful. Hotel location is great. Within walking distance to Georgetown.

The staff was very welcoming especially Katherine . She went out of her way to make us feel like we were at home. Our room was beautiful ..the decor and I have to say the most comfortable bed ever. The linens in your hotel are top rated.

I have bed bug bites all over my legs! I stay at supposedly nice hotels like this to avoid this very thing! Horrified!

i reserved the room as a 40th anniversary gift for my sister and brother-in-law. She told me that everything was wonderful during their vusit; the staff, especially a certain woman at check-in; and that overall, their staff was heavenly. Thank you!

Great location and pretty room. Beds are so comfortable!

lobby is sexy rooms are comfortable and convenient

The staff was okay. Ordered room service once never had the opportunity again since they didn't give us the card to order it again. No ice machine except to ask the front desk. Most friendly staff was the door person.

I will stay here again Good location Excellent staff Nice breakfast Spacious room and bathroom

Great Location, beautiful hotel Staff very helpful & accommodating

From the moment I arrived, I was delighted with the Melrose. The hotel staff was pleasant and accommodating in every way. My room was clean, spacious and extremely comfortable. The location is perfect for strolling through Georgetown and for visiting the many sights DC has to offer. I will definitely stay at the Melrose again should I be in the Washington area.

The hotel was great and exactly what I was looking for. They allowed me to check in about 40 minutes early and held my bags at the end of my stay so that I could shuttle to and fro on my last day unencumbered by my luggage. When I arrived back, everything was in good order.

Everyone in the hotel was nice and friendly. The room was really clean and the food in the restaurant was great.

We enjoyed our short stay. The entrance is a little confusing for cab drivers. The reception folks are welcoming and staff does their best to keep everyone happy. We loved our one night stay. There is a bunch of restaurants around the area where you can choose your dinner. The bar seemed quite active. There is also a Whole Foods resturant next to the place.

Great location and bed after all the walking in this central DC location. Loved the art work

amenities were great and staff was delightful - Great experience

The room and lobby area were immaculate and welcoming

The gentleman Kay and bell hop that check me in were great. The room was nice but somewhat had a cigarette scent even though it was a non smoking room. I later realized it maybe the cleaning products that they used. The room was noticeable warm and I tried to adjust the room temperature but had to solicit the assistance of the staff which was very quick. I was getting ready for an event later that evening and as I went to shower, there was no shower curtain. Again I had to wait from staff downstairs to find one and place it in the bathroom, that took another 30 minutes. The second night of my stay I asked for a late check out, they could not locate me in the system and pondered how I was even able to be in the room. I was asked to come down and provide my card again to check in seeing that they claim they didn't swipe my card for the reservation. This after there was a noticeable hold on my credit card. I told them I would be down shortly, but they proceeded to call me after 10 minutes for the credit card which I found very annoying as I wasn't the one who had made the mistake and I had already been in bed so I needed some time to change to go downstairs. The gentleman on the phone was quite forward and sarcastic and while I was willing to overlook there poor preparedness in the room ( the missing shower curtain and the warm room) they seemed to be more concerned about harassing me to correct their mistake even though my reservation was prepaid.

After my first bad hotel experience after a day of sightseeing with my family, Orbitz was able to secure my family a room at the Melrose. The Melrose was top notch. Would definitely stay here again if I'm in the DC area. Very professional staff, addressed you by name and even had valet parking. Was so happy that they were able to accommodate my family on such short notice.

The staff was great. Mia, Katherine. The manager. Excellent service. Smiles and laughter, and making sure all of our needs were met!!

Great location! Minor things could be better within the rooms, other than that the staff was great. Allowed us for an early check in whenever we wanted and a late checkout.
