Fabulous 8.8 From 1,192 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Definitely worth a visit
Great location and wonderful staff! Whether you’re with family or traveling alone, the watergate hotel is an excellent choice for travelers staying in D.C. The location is ideal for those who like river views and serene evenings. I’d recommend getting a room with a balcony with the river view. Romantic and quiet setting. On the other hand, they have two bars in house that we’re packed both nights of our stay. The lobby bar, with modern mixology bar vibe, and the roof deck bar that was more like a Miami night club:) the place has got options to say the least!

Nice but meh service.
The rooms and amenities at the Watergate are lovely but the service left much to be desired. It took 3 phone calls to the front desk to have ice delivered to our room (there are no ice machines). It also took two calls to get an extra robe and coffee the next morning. A bit annoying considering price.

Not a 5 star hotel.
The hotel was nice but not five star worthy. Out of date and the little things that make the difference between a four and five star rating were abscent. For instance my wifi in our room never worked. Despite two different phone calls it was never repaired and no word back despite being told i would be contacted back from their IT professional. The housekeeping accidentaly picked up my one pair of gym shorts and when returned, returned them uncleaned in a plastic bag thus forcing me to either not workout or wear shorts that were just in the hotels dirty laundry bin for sheets....no thanks. Like i said its not a five stat hotel. I wont be back. Rooftop bar was awesome though.

Three times and always charming!
This was our third time staying here. Third time is a charm! All our visits were great, but this time was definitely the best! We will look forward to return visits.
