Air conditioning would not go below 72. Tv remote would not work despite getting a new one. Rooftop bar requires reservations, which we were not told. Upon arrival we were told we could stand. Our group got drinks and stood near the balcony. At that time we were told we had to move for a private party which was not marked. Was very clean and valets were kind and helpful. Would not stay there again.

I must say, the watergate hotel is one the fanciest hotels I’ve ever been to. The minute you walk in, you’re greeted by a professional staff. My room was really beautiful it felt like I was at home. I did not want to leave. If you want to experience a 5 star service, then the watergate hotel is the place to be. Will definitely come back!

The staff was very nice and helpful.

There are no food and beverage options after 10:30 pm on weeknights. Literally can’t even get a prepackaged salad or candy bar. The hotel is in a food desert and you would need to walk many blocks to find a restaurant. Otherwise this is a decent hotel priced as a 4-star hotel.

Stayed overnight after a show at the Kennedy Center. Perfect location.

The property and amenities were OK. The elevator system needs a serious upgrade. Waiting 15-20 mins for the elevator is a problem. When a customer books a room, the expectation is that it will be available on arrival.

The Watergate redesign is phenomenal. The staff was wonderful. Only issue was that they accidentally billed me an extra $312 for parking after already billing me $52 for parking.

Excellent Service. Great Restaurant five stars👏👏👏😊😊😊😂

We checked in at 5:00 p.m., however our room was not ready. This was a bit unusual as check in is at 3:00 p.m. The front desk assistant couldn't have been nicer and provided a complimentary drink for my wife and I at their Kingbird bar. Service at the property was fantastic.

The property was fantastic. The staff was polite, helpful, and professional. The room was clean and very nice. The bathroom was great. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the "Scandal" room by Mr. Zacharia Powers. It was absolutely fascinating.

Didn’t like the restaurant and their limited dinner menu. No Steak on the menu, unless you ordered through room service??

We had a great stay and would definitely recommend it. It's slightly away from the crowds & noise, yet easy access to everything. The staff was very friendly, nostalgic history and the view of the river was stunning. Enjoyed the rooftop bar at sunset and everyone needs to add this to their list of fabulous spots in DC. Very easy walk to The Kennedy Center and Georgetown shops & waterfront was a bonus. Book it...
