"Great hotel but parking is a rip-off"
The hotel was good. I have no complains about room, service, or staff. The hotel cost me $117/night but parking is $44. Parking was a big rip off. Outside parking garages would charge $22-25 max. Plan better next time :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"centrally located to GWU and Georgetown"
I have stayed at the Melrose last year and when I got there this time the whole hotel was completed renovated! It was nice before and now I just loved it!! I recommended it to friends last year and already started doing the same!! Wonderful staff very accommodating!! I am in DC a few times a year as my son attends George Washington University - I have […] stayed at other lovely hotels as well but I keep coming back to the Melrose so that says something!! Love the new style!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice hotel -I got a great deal on it!"
The hotel provided computers suck and the printer doesn't work...well it does, it just prints your stuff 15 minutes after you send it to print. and The staff just says the printer has a mind of it's own and only offer to print if you send your doc via email to them. Great tavern nearby called The 51st State. Nice meal and beer at Mr. Smith's in Georgetown. Everything […] in nearby Georgetown was accessible and fun. Nice evening boat tour from the Georgetown dock area only $52 for two ppl 1.5 - 2hr rt. This boat take you under a bridge where everyone has to clear the top deck and the boatmen lower all antennas to just barely squeeze under three very very very low low low clearance bridges. A must do!!!! It's really cool!!!!!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Excellent hotel. Room was very comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very solid hotel"
I did have to switch rooms as the first they gave me had a view of a brick wall. They accommodated me without hassle... but it would have been nice if any of the staff members I encountered on my way in had offered to get my bags for me.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good location--very boring atmosphere--"
Never again. Good location--near Georgetown. Employees were OK--polite and fairly professional. Contemporary clean facilities. Problem: No atmosphere, no people, no life.....it was like a funeral home. It was so quiet--I hardly saw any guests. Will never go back despite a decent rate. I never saw any food or drink at the lobby retaurant/bar--very cold […] atmosphere.The few employees I saw were nice...polite-stiff. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very modern and beautiful hotel. Room and bed were large. Only 2 complaints. One, the coffee maker was inside the cupboard, attached, which made it virtually impossible to make a cup of coffee since one can't pour water into it. Second complaint, the menu options including a cup of coffee were extortionately over priced. I'm from NY and know overpriced […] food and beverage when I see it. I ended up going to starbucks nearby for breakfast. Other than that, the staff were welcoming and the rooms were spacious and beautiful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
They have recently renovated the hotel lobby and rooms. We've stayed here for years for a quick visit downtown. The lobby is modern and the rooms are very beautiful. The colors are warm grays / black / white, so if that's not your thing, you might not like it as much. Also, they are still in the process of redoing the rooms. We stayed on the top floor […] and all the rooms were done, so you might verify that your room has been updated (8/2013). Also, knowing this hotel, some rooms are definitely bigger than others. So if you end up in a smaller room, you might ask if a larger room is available. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Overnight stay and weekend parking on the streets"
This was a safe environment for a woman. The staff responded to all my questions and hotel needs. I plan to return in the fall or holiday season.Genuine Expedia guest review
Rooms were clean and updated. Hotel is modern and location is close to Georgetown shopping, Kennedy Center, and the metro!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful Hotel-Beautiful Neighborhood near metro"
I loved staying at The Melrose. The unique lobby with comfortable seating in a modern library setting with bar and food available was nice for meeting with friends. The staff was friendly and helpful. My room was very relaxing and well appointed with coffee/tea service, a small fridge, convenient plug-ins at night stand and desk area, and free WiFi. […] My favorite part was the large window to let in morning light with a little corner chair with ottoman. At night the drapes completely darkened the room and despite students next door the room was very quite and bed comfortable for sound sleeping. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Staff was not knowledgeable about surrounding. Parking.Genuine Expedia guest review
"First time in DC"
Everything was perfect, except on our last night at the hotel when my husband and I were sitting outside enjoying the view in the outdoor cafe area which is right outside the hotel doors, several people would come outside to smoke causing us to choke and gag. As soon as the air would clear (the number of people smoking would increase) they would come […] outside and smoke some more until we had to leave and go to our room. Hopefully, when we come back to the Melrose the smoking area will be further away from the hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Stay and I would Highly Recommend"
We had a few glitches (hotel was overbooked) when we first arrived but the crew at The Melrose made every effort to make things right and from that point on, our stay was outstanding. The room facilities were excellent, the workout facility was excellent, the people were excellent and I am very pleased.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great recommendation by Hotels.com"
We booked this hotel based on a recommendation by Hotels.com. We got the double bed room and it was quite big which was great because we have a 2 and 5 year old.

Loved The Melrose! I needed a place to stay for one night and just wanted to relax--I loved the pillowtop bed and slept soundly; took a bubble bath in the nice tub; had an outstanding meal at the restaurant downstairs; loved the view of Pennsylvania Ave. I didn't need to leave the hotel.

"Another Treasure on Pennsylvania Avenue!"
We were looking for the most elegant place for our guests from the Midwest and found this gem. The service, the rooms, the food, and the thoughtful layout of the hotel itself made for a delightful experience for all.

Hotel was fine. Convenient to my meetings. A little noisy as there was a very large group there but not too bad. Seemed a little worn but generally a nice hotel. Would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Nice and reasonable location near Foggy Bottom."
Good location, nice staff, nice sized rooms. Restaurant service and food was great for breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great family trip to DC"
The hotel staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. The rooms were on the small-side (with the bathrooms being very small), but the tasteful decor made up for this. The location of the hotel is a couple of blocks from the Foggy Bottom metro stop and also close to parks for kids/dogs. Overall, it was a very nice place to stay for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Had a wonderful stay at the Melrose! Will definitely book it again for my next trip back to DC.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent boutique hotel, lackluster service"
Needed somewhere to stay near my friend who was at Avenue Suites. I got a good rate through Expedia. I had a stroller, an overnight bag, and a 4 year old with me. There were about 6 steps from the lobby to the elevators and no one offered to help me carry my stuff up the stairs. They weren't particularly busy, just not paying much attention to their […] guests' needs. Also, when I was checking out, they made me wait even while one representative just stood there watching what the other one was doing. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was quite nice. It's an old building but has a wonderfully quaint and modern decor. Service was excellent. All the staff were friendly. The location nearby several restaurants, pubs, and markets was convenient. Nice neighborhoods, too. Great stay overall. I would definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and vibe"
Overnight parking excessively expensive $44 then $10 per hour after 3 pm the next day which amounted to almost $60 for parking less than 24 hours. Hotel is lovely mix of contemporary and traditional with great staff. Our room was warm AC not working. They moved us to another room 2 doors down right away and gave us 2 continental breakfasts gratis. Had […] I know the cost of the parking I would have preferred that be free instead! Would stay there again but find another parking garage. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Good service, excellent location close to monuments Grocery stores and nice restaurants close by Parking expensive but it is the same in all DCGenuine Expedia guest review
This is a very nice hotel in the middle of Foggy Bottom, near G. Washington Univ. and reasonable walk to a Metro stop. It's a high grade hotel. It was great. It doesn't have the amenities of swimming or exercise, but it's safe, high grade of room and service, and close to small restaurants, a grocery store, and a 7-11.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Modern hotel in a great location"
This hotel is located right on Pennsylvania Ave, about a mile away from the White House. It is very accessible to public transportation, less than a 5 minute walk to the Foggy Bottom-GWU metro stop. I loved the Constitution wallpaper, very appropriate to D.C. It's very modern and comfortable, I have no complaints whatsoever.Genuine Expedia guest review
