Excellent customer service at front desk by Cortez, Jake, Lelise, manager lady (so sorry, I'm bad with names), and porters. Location was excellent: Trader Joe's a block down, convenience store 2 steps away, transportation, nice views, friendly service. I can't wait to be back. Ruth Weinfeld, MA RN.

Thankyou Aki for all your support during our extended stay at the Melrose Hotel in Foggy Bottom . You were a true hero in fully supporting the three of us during those traumatic 5 days . One day we hope to return and be sure to look you up . The Melrose is a great hotel , very comfortable , clean rooms and friendly staff . It’s in a great location only a mile from the Lincoln Memorial and a ten minute stroll east into Georgetown , which is not to be missed , including the beautiful riverside . David Wright.

Very pleasant check in staff and large room with comfortable bed, although air con was a bit noisy even on low. We were told that due to Covid, the hotel restaurant was only open for breakfast, but that the bar menu was available. However, when we went down to eat, we were told that due to a private event the kitchen was closed. It was a wet evening in Washington, there was no booklet in the room suggesting alternative restaurants nearby. We dashed over Pennsylvania Ave to an Asian cafe for a very average meal. I appreciate the difficulties Covid has caused for staff recruitment, but this was very inconvenient.

Dear NorwichCarrow, Thank you for the candid review of your recent visit to us! I am delighted that you found the check-in Ambassadors and room to your liking. I apologize for the misunderstanding in regards to all of our food & beverage operation. Breakfast and dinner are currently served at the Hotel. Breakfast commences at 7AM until 11AM, followed by dinner from 5PM to 10:30PM in our Hotel restaurant, lounge and Bar! Furthermore, we provide complimentary coffee and tea in our Lobby daily from 6:30AM to 10AM; followed by a flavored water station from 12PM through the day. On the few occasions that the restaurant might have a buy out, we still serve our full dinner menu in our restaurant foyer, lounge or the Bar. Within walking distance of the Hotel, we have 80+ restaurants with curated lists available at the front office, based on dining options. I apologize that this was not conveyed to you. Once again, thank you for the candid review and I hope that in your next visit that we meet and exceed your expectations! Sincerely, Abdulla Almutairi Hotel Director of Operations

Bottom line: toilet broke and wouldn’t flush, excruciatingly slow Wi-Fi (too slow for video conferencing reliably) with an obvious password (your data is not secure), room smelled of cigarette smoke, and rude nighttime staff at check in. When I was checking into the hotel at night, I saw an elderly couple checking in before me. They spoke French and very little English. and could not understand the staff person’s description of the hotel restaurant. So the staff person’s solution was to literally yell the same thing over and over to them in English. And he did not help them up the stairs with their bags despite their obvious mobility issues. Location is convenient but my stay, by far, did not live up to this price and the expectation of a luxury hotel.

Dear Enrico C, It is disconcerting when one of our guests does not have a full experience at our Hotel. When one review does not reflect the majority of what our full traveling community experiences, it allows us the opportunity to regroup and figure out how we missed such an opportunity to impress. The service portrayed in your candid review does not embody our operation and I appreciate the ability to hear you so we can continue to impress! We wish you safe travels and always encourage you to reach out during your stay so we can ensure that we can correct any missed opportunity. Travel safe and we hope to welcome you back so that you have a true experience. Sincerely, Abdulla Almutairi Hotel Director of Operations

Visited in May from the UK. Having told them our approx arrival time and also emailed to ensure the spare bed would be made up ready for our son, we arrived to be sent to the wrong room with just 1 bed as they were full. After 3 visits to reception to sort out a bed for our exhausted son, finally a bed was wheeled through with bedding which had clearly been used as was all crumpled, so the poor thing ended up squashed with us as he was so tired from a long flight. We were given the correct room the next day but the air con was broken, noisy and dripping onto the floor, stained carpet, very tired decor and even a mousetrap in the room and all of us received bites around our ankles from other inhabitants of the room! We received no 'welcome' on arrival, no instructions about the free tea and coffee in the morning and generally were seen as a nuisance. At check out time they billed us for a suit for all the nights even though we didn't receive a suit for the first night and when we questioned this the response was 'so you want a discount' no we want to pay for what we received! We love Washington DC and have visited before but the service and welcome we received here has put us off ever visiting again. Their focus is entirely on their foyer area but they need to work on their customer service!

Dear travellingjacks, Thank you for the thorough and candid review of your recent visit with us at our Hotel. I am disappointed that your stay was less than perfect; and I find it disconcerting that unlike many of our travelers feedback, your stay did not meet or exceed your expectations. I would have loved the opportunity to speak to you directly during your visit and address the concerns you shared. We pride ourselves in the warm and curated service we provide and your stay does not reflect that. Please reach out to me directly at abdulla@melrosehoteldc.com so that I can continue the conversation and allow us the opportunity to correct the mishaps you faced. Until then, please travel safe. Sincerely, Abdulla Almutairi Hotel Director of Operations

Lelise, at registration, went out of her way to accommodate my needs for a late checkout after Shabbat was over. She also printed my boarding pass and made sure I had transportation to the airport. She made me want to return to the Melrose again!

From the start of my reservation the staff at Melrose Georgetown were efficient and welcoming. I also needed a last change of which Lelise at reception was more than willing to accommodate. Between her, Nutun, Jenner and Aki the reception staff all reflect the kind of customer service and friendliness that welcomes guest back :-)
