This hotel is beautiful. It is modern, clean, and filled with wonderful staff. The holiday decorations were stunning, ticketless valet easy and fast, and attached bar/restaurant were excellent. This will be where I stay from now on.

Hotel is lovely, the rooms are spacious and beautiful not to mention comfortable. Turn down service was a bonus, friendly staff. This is my new go to hotel for Washington DC! Can't wait to visit again.

I am thinking about staying December 1 - 4. Will I be able to view the holiday boat parade and fireworks from my room?
Dear Carol S, Thank you for your question. Reserving a river view room will assist with seeing the parade and fireworks. However, we are not able to guarantee the view because The Wharf operates the holiday parade. If you have additional questions, please let us know. Thank you, Alexandria June Marketing Manager

I am due to come and stay on 13th December and I was wondering if the spa would be open and if so where I can locate a spa services menu? Many thanks
Dear Ann-MarieMcdonogh, Thank you for your question. The Wharf Spa by L'Occitane is now open and will be open on the day of your arrival. At the present moment, the website is still being developed, however the services are confirmed. Please call the hotel to be transferred to the spa for more details. We're looking forward to your visit! Thank you, Alexandria June Marketing Manager

Are there rooms with balconies? If so, how do you reserve a room with a balcony?
They do. The rooms facing the water is an awesome view. You even get to people watch a bit.

What is the difference between double standard and double deluxe?
Dear jaihope43, Thank you for your question and interest in InterContinental Washington D.C.- The Wharf. All of our guestrooms are spacious and offer unique amenities. The difference between a Standard room and Deluxe room is the view. There are Standard rooms that offer a Maine Ave or Wharf St view. Our Deluxe rooms have Potomac River views. Standard and Deluxe rooms are on each floor too. If you have additional questions, please feel free to give the hotel a call. Thank you, Alexandria June Marketing Manager
