Clean, up to date. I didn't use many services or amenties. Didn't appreciate being put in a room near the elevator, but people weren't too noisy. Night staff not so welcoming, but everyone else was very hospitable and helpful. A ramp up to elevator would have been useful for getting bags up 4 steps, as would towel racks (which they said they were working […] on).. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Location was perfect for me. Room was very clean and I had everything I needed. Room service and food were great. Lots of places to each nearby as well, and a Whole Foods in walking distance. I liked the retro decorating vibe in my room. I wish they had a little "to-go" food counter, but I don't think they did. Overall, great stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel! Walking distance to Georgetown shops"
Wonderful hotel! Clean, friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay again. Walking distance to great shops and restaurants. My only complaint was that the church close by starts ringing their bells fairly early so bring ear plugs if you have been out late and need some sleep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Location is great, within walking distance of Georgetown and a metro stop. Very quiet room. Spotless. On the downside, the TV and bedside clock didn't work and the desk electrical outlet was dead. Those were minor annoyances.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Georgetown - great location"
You read reviews and wonder... This place is great! It's 2.5 blocks from the Foggy Bottom Metro that takes you to any site you want to see. It's a short walk to historic Georgetown (old town) with all the high end shops and local places as well. There's a Trader Joes across the street and and the doorman is more than happy to flag down a taxi to get […] to the hip 14th Ave NW part of town. Will definitely come back here for a weekend trip or for business. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Room pretty and clean, bed super comfortable, wireless easy to attach to and adequate for work. So convenient! Half a block from a metro stop.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the hotel room doors surrounding me slammed all night. therefore i did not sleep well. there should be a spring on the door or something. also the pillows were so high/deep i had a stiff neck. i had dinner in the restaurant and they got the order wrong. very simple order.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful Hotel but Second Floor was loud"
Hotel service, decor and location were great. Only concern was that there was a lot of outside noise we could hear from our room on the second floor (Multiple Garbage Trucks, an ambulance, etc.) I would think a higher floor would be better.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
LOVE LOVE LOVE this hotel. I will say the only thing was the service during breakfast was much to be desired. Other then that everything about this hotel was TOP NOTCH!!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Beautifully appointed hotel with clear DC charm and character. Views from the room was stunning and complimented the styling of the interior. Only concern was that without a valet card or ID check, I was able to drive away my vehicle. Security in this regard may need to be reevaluated.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Big rooms and great details at the Melrose!"
My husband and I chose to stay at the Melrose for its great location close to Georgetown and the nice rooms. Our king room was way larger than we expected; it was really the size of a small studio! We were on the inside, so no great views, but we were a 10-min walk from the heart of Georgetown and a quick walk to great restaurants like Founding Farmers. […] The staff was pleasant and everything was well kept, which I really appreciated. I loved the decor, too; the modern color palette and simple artwork were eye-catching.

"A Hidden Gem"
This could be my new go-to place in DC: a remodeled boutique that balances convenience, cost and comfort. I loved my stay here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Value Great Location"
Found the room to be comfortable if a bit oddly shaped. Lots of space and once you learn the building started life as an apartment house the odd layouts begin to make sense. Staff were attentive and valet service was quick and friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was wonderful about this hotel. They had just done a remodel and the room was beautiful, everything was clean, the staff was fabulous. I have only 1 complaint and that was the parking. There is no where to park so they offer valet service for a mere $48 a day. I thought that was a little extreme but I would recommend the hotel as long as […] you know the parking situation.

"Clean, Newly Rennovated Hotel"
My stay was mostly great- the room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the decor was good! My only complaint about the hotel was that our door would not shut. It had to be locked from the inside to stay closed, which my husband and I realized once we came home from dinner and activities to the door opened into the hallway. None of our belongings […] were out of place, but it was certainly an odd experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very comfortable room, clean and well maintained. In a convenient location to central DC and Georgetown. Service was excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Had stayed at the Melrose a few years ago. Noticed the updated look as soon as I entered the lobby. Staff was very pleasant, great location. Would recommend and I will stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
got a 625 ft room / apt... with a bedroom & living room for $100. what a deal. it was fabulous!! thank you hotels.comGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Gorgeous, comfortable - in the heart of DC."
The Melrose was really wonderful - I stayed here for work and it was perfect - free wifi! ( I get so annoyed with hotels that try to charge for what is definitely a basic amenity these days.) The room was very clean and gorgeously appointed. Great work space - built for ease with plugs handy. Delicious Lavazza coffee in the morning-The gym was fantastic […] too!

"Beautiful hotel - neighborhood a bit noisy"
This hotel is modern and quite striking. I was more than impressed when we walked in. Hotel parking is expensive in DC. We spent over an hour circling until we found a suitable spot. We arrived on a Saturday night. There are several bars that turn into nightclubs in the area. Lots of club goers and a few drunken loud talkers moving about. The hotel […] is a bit remote from the attractions. The hotel staff absolutely provided a five star experience helping us with maps and advice for getting around. Breakfast service was a bit slow and a bit pricey. FREE wifi! I would recommend this hotel to my single friends or couples with no kids. I would not recommend the hotel or area for those with small children (which we were). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, well-appointed, good service"
I did not spend a lot of time at the hotel (just stopping through for business) but it was very clean, large rooms, nice design/fixtures, nothing to complain about. The front desk staff were very helpful. The only thing that wasn't great (for me, at least) was the location. It would probably be good for someone with business at Georgetown, but it is […] not all that close to the Metro, so it made travel to central DC a bit of a hike.

"Wonderful experience for our short stay"
We were only in town for about 15 hours but as soon as we go to the Melrose, everything was top notch! Our room was upgraded and our breakfast was promptly delivered at 9am when we requested it. Lovely staff and lovely hotel, can't wait to come back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great place, needs free wifi.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"2nd stay here"
With a friend to attend med yoga symposium at gwu. Only complaint - no coffee maker in room. I'd stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice staff, big rooms"
The staff were all very helpful and professional. I had dinner in the restaurant, and it was very good as well (the chowder was delicious), and the service was great. The gym is a good size, with lots of cardio equipment, and it had towels and water. There was a nice sitting lounge by the lobby. My room was huge (definitely the largest I've ever had […] in DC), and it seemed clean, and I'm pretty picky. There weren't any cups in the rooms, which would have been nice. I'd definitely stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stay here all the time"
Perfectly fine. Location can't be beat. Nice rooms, friendly staff. Two blocks from Georgetown. Restaurants and shops everywhere. Circulator bus stops almost at the front door. Good value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Melrose Georgetown Hotel"
I'm a frequent business traveler and have not been impressed with many of the hotels in the D.C. area, either for price, size, quality or service. The Melrose will now be my #1 pick the next time I am in the area. It is a beautifully renovated boutique hotel, within walking distance to the retail area in Georgetown. The service was top-notch.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean, convenient (near a Metro stop and Georgetown) and very much enjoyed the stay. Friendly and helpful staff as well. I have stayed here before and it's always a positive experience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My daughter and I were in DC for the first time on college visit. The Melrose was excellent in all areas and we had a great trip!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff are very friendly,and nice. Price are reasonable and nearby a lot of attraction. I was very please with this place . Definitely recommend to other!! :)))Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel despite the construction: staff friendly and helpful. Minor complaint, please use heavier blankets for winter. We stayed with two kids under 8, hotel was nice and would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The New Melrose........."
Renovation was completed about 4 months ago. Complete makeover. Clean, great staff, large comfortable rooms. Free Wi-Fi. Do not care much for the openness of the Bar and Dining Room as it feels like they are an extension of the lobby with no separation. Valet parking rate still off the charts. Can't beat the location as its a quick walk to the Foggy […] Bottom Metro or Georgetown. Have stayed here multiple times with no complaints. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great find in District"
Picked this hotel based off of reviews and I'm so glad I did. It's a beautiful property, in a great location just few blocks away from Georgetown. The lobby is beautifully decorated and we were warmly welcomed from the valet to the doorman to the desk attendant. We were able to check into our room earlier than expected and were thrilled with our executive […] suite. It was spacious, nicely decorated and had a very comfy bed. The hotel also had complimentary champagne for New Year's Eve and "hangover" helper of bloodys and cold pizza, which was a nice touch. We really loved our stay here and plan to return again for the next getaway. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I stayed at Melrose Hotel with my three children. I threw out my back, a friend picked up my children to take care of them, and the Melrose staff took care of me. They were all so kind and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean. I have only good things to say about this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location. Fantastic hotel and staff."
Beautiful room. Lovely boutique hotel within walking distance to Georgetown shopping. Wonderful bar, restaurant, and staff. Only issue was regulating the heat within the room, but I wouldn't say that's a deal breaker by any means. We're locals and will be back-without kids next time!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice, Modern Boutique Hotel"
The location of this hotel is more Foggy Bottom than Georgetown. While a subway stop and Trader Joe's are a few blocks away the neighborhood is an odd mix of office and high rise condos- not exactly "charming." The best aspect of this hotel is the modern, boutique hotel design reminiscent of Kimptons. Room was clean but guest services and amenities […] leave much to be desired- room requests were not noted, a doorman and valet was absent most of the time, and the front desk/ concierge doesn't go out of the way to greet or assist guests. As other reviewers noted the walls are thin (can clearly hear whatever is happening in the hallway). A view is nonexistent (the Marriott Residence Inn around the corner looks onto a quaint street of row homes) but street parking is plentiful, at least on the weekend.

We stayed at the Melrose a few years ago (before its renovation) and really enjoyed it, so we were looking forward to a return visit. Wow! The renovation is fabulous: rooms are beautiful, efficient and luxurious. Hotel is spotless, and staff are among the best we've encountered. We love the Georgetown area and walking around DC, so the location was […] an added plus. We will look for future discounted rates at hotels.com for the magnificent Melrose. Our stay was delightful and made for a wonderful holiday getaway. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"christmas in dc"
Best value for money for a suite in DC even around the holiday season. Suite was bigger than i expected. Essentially the size of a big one bed room apartment. My only negatives is room service was expensive and the funrniture wasnt so soft and comfy as I would have wanted.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fun Hotel a Few Blocks from Georgetown"
My wife and I wanted to stay in DC after a December holiday party. We wanted close by Georgetown but not too close. This hotel fit the bill. It was clean, professional but inviting, romantic, and modern. Great local find.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel! Rooms were very clean and the location was perfect.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
When I booked this hotel I had no idea how great the location would be for the activities we had planned. We were able to see areas of Georgetown and it was within walking distance to see the White House and that area. Overall, the service staff was excellent and friendly. My only complaint with the service was the morning we decided to eat breakfast […] onsite. The server seemed very put off by the fact that we came in casually dressed (we were getting ready to spend hours touring on a cold December day so we were wearing comfortable clothes). When my husband excused himself to use the restroom, the server came and yelled, "What is going on here?!" at me as I was eating. I'm not sure what that was about.

Unfortunately the hotel did not honor our reservation for a deluxe king room and put my wife and I in a room with two twin beds. Staff handled it poorly and offered no real apology or compensation. Otherwise hotel was decent but not spectacular, not what I was expecting based on the reviews. Room was far too warm even after cranking down the thermo […] stat.

"nice hotel - good location"
Have stayed several times and will not hesitate to stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location was excellent close to everything with walking distance. The comfort inside the room was poor. The heather was too hot and can not be adjusted. Bathroom too small for King size bedroom. surprisingly, no free in room coffee maker provided. :( Although, there are some snacks, bottled water provided w/fee of charge. However $45.00/day of parking […] its too expensive, in my opinion. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel staff greeted us at the front door with smiles......the room was beautiful, very modern and well maintained. Only slight issues was the flat screen tv reception, okay to less than okay. Bath tub drain did not function well and water temp reached on warm, not hot. Noted these issues to front desk staff. Other than these small things, my daughters […] and I would definitely go back to the Melrose. Note: If you are a light sleeper, I recommend bringing ear plugs as the hallway is noisy with other guests opening/closing the heavy doors that slam shut. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
