Roof Terrace Restaurant: what do users think?


Jeff Luttrell: RTR is a pretty good place for dinner before a show at the Kennedy Center. The restaurant has the classic aesthetic of the Kennedy Center with beautiful views from the terrace outside the restaurant. The staff were friendly enough though our waiter didn't talk with us too much. Food service was quick which is to be expected for those going to performances. The quality of the food is okay. All of our entrees were hot but just okay taste wise. Pretty good selection for vegetarians and the fish choices are nice too! We'll come back and try it again as we go to the KC often.

Ron Milkowski: I have never been to the Kennedy Center and had no idea that there even was a restaurant. What a very nice dining experience. Santo our waiter was very knowledgeable with the food and drinks. It is a bit pricey but worth it. Even if you are not going to an event I highly recommend checking it out.

Anusha Chatterjee: Wonderful bar service! The food was so good. Had the tuna carpaccio and the salmon. Both were absolutely perfect! Lovely seasonal Cocktails. Perfect stop before or after the show. The bar has the full menu, so no reservations were needed. Lovely intimate vibe.

Craig Herrick: We’ve been here a number of times over the years though this was the first visit in two years. The Terrace has upped their game. My lamb chops and wife’s fillet would go over well in any finer local venue. The service was prompt and professional and based around our show time. Terrace maintains most of its vintage (60’s) vibe which is what I like about it.

Stu: Read some negative reviews before going to the Roof Terrace restaurant, and had some concerns. I will say that this was a lovely place and a rather elegant atmosphere. The food was fine- especially the seasoned fries. Delicious! We each had a fish dish, which at nearly forty dollars each I found to be drastically overpriced. Even at ten dollars less it would have been overpriced. Yet the meals were tasty, though not very filing. They came with the tiniest bit of vegetables. The service was excellent, and my concerns about inattentive service or being rushed were proven false. In all, it is a very nice place to go that is the ultimate in convenience if you are going to a Kennedy Center performance. But you pay for that convenience in very high restaurant prices. Would I return? Probably, but this is not a place I'd be able to afford very often.

Myrna Linzy: Very good. Waitress was very good in helping me with which meal. Picked my drinks. Awesome place.

Catina Carter: The food and service was outstanding. Wonderful place to have a beautiful experience of class. The views were wonderful as well.

Mary Robinson: Wonderful dinner before a show. Cant beat the views! Professional service throughout the meal.

Veronica Coleman: Wonderful evening at the Kennedy Center and dining at the Roof Terrace Restaurant. Great food. Great music.

Phil Cooke: Great setting at the Kennedy Center, ideal for pre show dinner. Service was excellent; overall, food was very good. Our party of four got fish, with the bass being the best, by far. Others, trout and salmon, were just okay. It is a little pricey, but the setting, service and convenience make it worth it.

The Rooftop at The Ven at Embassy Row: what do users think?


farida popal: I was there on Saturday the 25th. We wanted to go to the rooftop bar. As soon we were at main entrance, the door man greeted us and guide us. When we went to the bar the atmosphere was nice. The drinks were a bet pricey and bar food was great! I’ll defiantly go again.

chrisy edme: The stay was wonderful! The staff at the front desk are amazing ! Specially Lyle at the front desk, he was just a sweetheart to us. We booked our stay prior to them implementing the daily amenity fee. He waived it off of our stay and informed us that he will be more than happy to still provide the perks ! We received some sent sachet of jasmine and lavender which were amazing :) In addition to that he provided us with late check out because our flight was later in the afternoon. He also gave us some great tips of how to get around since it was our first time in DC. Also my room was provided with daily housekeeping and my housekeeper was just a sweetheart too but forgot her name unfortunately. My only Con was the bathroom size, as it was super small and there was no ventilation.

Kimberly “ ” Watson: Excellent! Love the space! The art exhibit in the hotel was wonderful!

D Nguyễn: This bar on the top of the hotel with a pool has a nice view of the city. Not that DC has much of a skyline. The pool is nice to relax after a day of exploring the museums. We went during the day for a couple drinks during Pride. We also came back in the evening before dinner for pre-drinks. It wasn't crowded. A couple people in the pool. The bar as a selection of food and cocktails. The bar service was friendly. Drinks are about what I expect from a hotel roof bar.

Neil Osment: Our review is split between the cocktail bar and the rooftop bar.....because the rooftop is actually closed for the season!! Not very helpful that this fact isn't advertised on Google or TripAdvisor by the hotel. However, the cocktail bar is very good, and Jorge (The Guru from Peru!!) is excellent. Friday evening (10/20/17 USA not GMT!) in the main bar was lively, vibrant and a great place to be 😊

Don Robinson: The bartender said it was a "soft opening" for the season. The drinks were very limited. No regular Red Bull (but lots of flavors of Red Bull), no Coke- only Pepsi, and not diet, and many other limitations. He gave us a free drink because he started to make the Jack and diet Pepsi but couldn't finish when he realized no diet Pepsi. The service was very good, and presumably they will have more options when they "really" open. The rooftop area was pretty basic, as I expected from the reviews, but the views of the city were nice. You could hear a little of the street music from Dupoint occasionally. This is not a destination, but was a great hour stopover between dinner and our Improv comedy show.

jo n: Visited on a Saturday late afternoon. When the bartender was asked about happy hour he claimed there wasn't one. Although the sign at the hotel lobby clearly stated there was one from 4-7pm. Based on quality, the drinks are super overpriced. The rooftop itself is small, an okay view. Don't waste your time visiting.

Reuben Wauyo: This is a beautiful venue and would seem to be all great but terrible customer service. Called for a reservation and information on restaurant and was referred to main line. To which someone picked up after I waited on hold, heard me then hung up. This is the most disrespectful and frustrating thing I can think of when trying to get things set for events. Calling back no one picks up and I have now been calling main line for 30 minutes to be assisted and again no one to answers. You would have to be crazy to work with these guys on anything important for you will receive absolutely no clarification or answers on any questions you have. I was very surprised to even see positive reviews at all. I really hope it’s an isolated event, but if I can help anyone else not deal with my issue I’ll be glad to steer you away and onto another location. I will update with location and name after my reservation is set with our new venue. Also to be noted, not even the central main line can reach these guys and are unwilling to even try. I believe we’ve definitely dodged a bullet.

Walter Hunt: Friendly staff , great location, very accommodating

Ariel Abramson: Nice view and plenty of seats, but they close early and there isn't much of a drink selection. My beer selection tapped out the keg but the nice bar server gave it to me at no charge.

The Observatory at America's Square: what do users think?


C F: This venue is absolutely stunning. It’s been several months after our wedding and we consistently still have guests telling us how beautiful our ceremony venue was. It has a breathtaking view of the Capitol and is extremely well maintained. We fit our 160 wedding guests under the provided tents for our ceremony with room to spare. Suzanne and the entire staff were a delight to work with and they really saved the day by accommodating us by scheduling a tour and our event very quickly after having our original venue cancel only 5-weeks before the big day.

Mark Vallaster: View is fantastic. Food is good but slow

Kimberly Kruse: Gorgeous views

Vue Rooftop: what do users think?


Elizabeth T.: Awesome location for a rooftop - only issue is that the best views are by the standing bar which seems to be an odd placement considering the food is expensive and you would think that they would seat more people by the windows. Drinks are on the pricier side with beer starting at $11. We ordered the burrata and lobster mango to start - by far the highlight of the meal. For dinner I got the lamb burger and it was okay but I’ve had better.

Elliott Schellinger: The views of the Washington monument are absolutely unparalleled from the booth at the Vue Rooftop. This was my first time at the establishment and I must admit I am quite impressed. The staff and the management were extremely accommodating, even though our demands were somewhat obnoxious. They were willing to open up the private dining area just for the two of us, and let us experience the D.C. skyline at its absolute best. The food was quite delicious. The appetizers in particular were truly scrumptious; “calamari” and “Parmesan fries” are the absolute must, along with the “olives and bread” starter. The must have cocktail for me was the “power to peaches”, divinely smooth and summery fresh. All-in-all, it was a perfect bon-voyage evening before we headed back to NYC. Thanks to the staff and the management for wrapping up our Washington D.C. visit in a ribbon with a luxurious bow on top.

JR Franks: Definitely worth checking out for the views of the WH and Mall, and the rooftop itself is quite spacious with a good amount of seating. The drinks were (unsurprisingly) on the pricier side so I probably wouldn’t come back often. Didn’t try the food but the burgers looked excellent, I’d probably try one if/when I come back.

Pat S: We had a table of 13 guest for a dinner party. My calamari was hard and overcooked my entree the seafood linguine was distasteful. Our entire table didn’t enjoy their entrees. Beautiful views of the White House and Mall, and the rooftop it’s spacious with a good amount of seating and upscale. Good vibes and ambience for drinking and dance only, dine somewhere else. The drinks were on the pricier side my cocktail was $22, overall so I probably won’t come back as often.

Robert Klara: Eggs Benedict was divine 🏽 Mimosas were definitely key 🥂 You can't beat the ambiance and the view. Reservations required for brunch and dinner. Worth the experience.

JD: This is a great spot for the social fare and view. It was packed on a Tuesday evening. Food was okay. Service okay. Drinks are great. Service gratuity is included in your bill, so tip extra when warranted

Robert Chang: If you want a great view of the White House, definitely check out this bar. Definitely worth spending the price for a drink just to check out the view. The drinks are definitely on the pricier side and my Old Fashion was a tad small but once again, the view was worth it.

PGAmos: Fantastic view. The White House is hidden because of the trees but I’m sure it’s in plain view during the winter. I attended an event and everything I ate was tasty. The drinks weren’t bad either! I’ll be adding this to my list for out-of-town folks to visit.

Susan FG: Food was great, as were service and views. One drink from the outdoor bar was not good, indoor bar drinks were definitely better. We still had to wait about 20 minutes for our table but that was not too bad

Christopher king: The view was pretty great. I ordered the lobster and rice because the bartender recommended it. The presentation was great but it tasted really dry. My friend got the crab cakes and those were delicious! Dont get the rice, it’s not worth $54. Probably wouldn’t visit again.

Hillside Terrace: what do users think?


Wayne Steele: Rent to high not enough parking spot and the apartment floor and walls are thin that you can hear your people over top of you walking and moving furniture across the floor at night and morning

Cookie Lyons: When will they control the pest problem?? I have lived here for 5 years (shame on me)... I have killed at least 100 cockroaches. Huge and disgusting! My child is scared to go in his room. All of my neighbors have complained! All they do is spray. Do not rent here...
Response: Good Morning, Thank you for your review of Hillside Terrace. We are disappointed that your living experience has been an unsatisfactory. Please give the property manager Patrick McKenzie a call at your earliest convenience. He would like to come and inspect your unit and come up with a solution together. His direct dial is 202-408-3205. Regards, Christine Nesbitt

Jennifer Miller: I would never come back to look at a unit at this property again because of this unprofessional employee.The trouble I went through just trying to see an apartment was unbelievable. I spoke to someone about a vacancy that they had. I arrive at the rental office only to be told by some lady by the name of (Kathy) they had none available, I told her I drove 1 hour and 1/2 to see this unit and she wasn't helpfully or understanding at all. I really hate to use the race card but I really think she only told me there was none available was because I was white and to top it off I noticed her smoking at least 7 cigarettes during a short span of 15 mins. 1. I didn't get to see an apartment 2. She was very unprofessional and 3. Stay away far away from Kathy.
Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We'd like to hear more about your individual experience. If you're open to discussing what we can do to improve please contact the property manager, Lawrence Brooks at 202-371-1220.

Breana Watson: I lived there for 5 yrs and I must say Kathy is the definition of the worst person on earth, her attitude sucks, and shes very unprofessional moving was the best decision of my life.
Response: Hi Breana, I'm so sorry to hear about your experience. I understand you have already moved out, but if you are willing, I would like the opportunity to hear how we could have served you better. If you would being willing to talk, please contact me at hbeckman@wcsmith.com. Thank you, Holli

Melissa Bagley: Terrible Kathy is a terrible landlord and very unprofessional I'm I moved in a nicer area with a nicer landlord and friendly neighbors that don't smoke weed across from me no more. I'm happy to be away from there because they need a serious upgrade to there buildings no a/c walls thin smh.

Emily Carter: I love living here! Aleka was super helpful with my move in process during the holidays and always responds quickly. The apartment itself has so much personality and huge windows overlooking Lanier. Very quiet and well maintained. I’m in love, very picturesque DC living :) very walkable including to Columbia heights metro

Park Terrace is truly a gem and we're glad that our convenient location has been a great fit for all your needs!

A J: My experience with this building has been wonderful so far. The on-site staff are so kind, and very responsive to all questions or needs that I have. The apartments are beautiful with lots of natural light and are in a great location.
Response: Thank you so much for your 5-star review! We're so glad you've had a wonderful experience with us so far and we appreciate your kind review! It's important to us that our residents are completely satisfied with their experience and we're happy to hear we met that mark! If there's anything else we can do to assist, please let us know.

H WB: This place is in a great location and some of the units get great natural light through huge windows. That is pretty much the only good thing. They have a little gym, which is nice. Otherwise, the place is old and has a HUGE bug problem. There have always been roaches in the stairwells, and there has been a huge infestation in some apartments for months. Management does nothing except “add people to the list” for biweekly pest control treatment. The cabinets are old and poorly made, and the appliances are crooked and old and make a perfect spot for roaches to nest. Unless you value location over anything else, do yourself a favor and don’t move here.

Idaho Terrace Apartments: what do users think?


Kriss Wagner: My daughter and I have been residents at Idaho Terrace since 2006. When we knew we'd be living in D.C., she said the only place she wanted to live would be I.T. I see why. The apartments are spacious and well-tended. When there is an issue, the building staff are easy to reach and punctual and thorough. There are building staff members who have been here upwards of 20 years! We highly recommend making this your home. The leasing office staff is fantastic. No matter the issue, or just stopping by to say Good Morning, you will be well-received. The professionalism is great, they are friendly, well-informed, and anxious to help. With all of this, plus a security building, utilities included in the rent, onsite laundry facility, next door to a small market, and a safe neighborhood just four blocks from District 2 police department, there is no reason for us to be anywhere else!
Response: Kriss, thank you for your kind words about our on-site team and for leaving us a review. We're so happy to read that you and your daughter have enjoyed being a part of the Idaho Terrace community since 2006!

Zara M: I moved here last year from NY and have had nothing but good experiences! The management is really kind and good about communication. Maintenance requests are always completed timely. The location is perfect; close to cute coffee shops and restaurants as well as grocery stores, and only a short walk to the beautiful National Cathedral. The units are older and not fancy or anything, but clean and functional. I don’t regret moving here!
Response: Zara, we're so glad to hear about your experience calling Idaho Terrace home. Thank you for the great rating!

Sean Murphree: I really enjoyed staying there! The staff are great, the events are fun, the facilities are clean and the move-in and move-out processes are efficient and easy. The rents are competitive, especially for the area, and I would definitely give them a look if you're planning to move to Northwest DC/Cathedral Heights.
Response: Sean, it's great to read that you had a positive experience calling Idaho Terrace home! Thanks so much for the kind words and rating.

Natalie Hill: I've lived at Idaho Terrace now for over four years, and the experience has been amazing. The building and the grounds are extremely well-kept, clean, up to date. The management is kind, reliable, and available, from those working in the office to the maintenance workers on site. They are so quick to respond to any question or request, and all work orders I've submitted have been taken care of same-day. The location is in a beautiful neighborhood and conveniently located near grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants, bus lines, and the metro, not to mention parks, trails, and the National Cathedral. Such a wonderful experience, community, and place to live -- I very highly recommend it.
Response: Natalie, thank you for extending your recommendation and being a part of the community for over four years! It's so great to know that you've had such a positive experience calling Idaho Terrace home.

Laura Kuhlman: I lived at Idaho Terrace for a little over two years. Like many people during the pandemic I spent more time than I ever wanted to in my studio apartment in the past year and I have to thank the wonderful staff (Olivia, Matt, James, Adil, Amy, others I'm sure I'm forgetting) ​at Idaho Terrace for making my time living there a pleasant experience. The front office and maintenance staff are friendly, professional, responsive and communicative. The building itself is well kept and clean, and the neighborhood is great (my favorite thing to do was walk the Glover-Archibold trail that's close by). You can get a little more for your money in terms of amenities outside of DC (i.e. MD/VA) but if this is the area you want/need to be in, you will feel at home at Idaho Terrace.
Response: Laura, we're so glad to hear that you've been having a great experience living at Idaho Terrace for over two years! Thank you so much for shouting out our team and leaving us this amazing review.

Nathalie: This apartment is such a wonderful place to live! I’m in my mid 20’s and have lived here for 5 years and I couldn’t be happier. The staff is so responsive and helpful. If you have any questions or need any help with anything, they are always at your service. Especially the maintenance team. Overall, just a wonderful staff and a comforting place to live. You won’t regret it!
Response: Nathalie, thank you for leaving Idaho Terrace this amazing review. It's so great to hear that you've been loving being a part of the community for five years!

Stephanie Best: I lived here for over 2 years and was truly happy to call Idaho Terrace my home. The team in the management office were always friendly and very helpful. The maintenance supervisor, James, always went out of his way to help the residents with whatever they needed. The entire team was always professional and did a wonderful job at communicating any information to the community. The building was safe, clean, and it is in the most perfect NW DC location. I highly recommend making Idaho Terrace your new home!
Response: Thank you for your kind review, Stephanie! We are so glad that you are enjoying your time at Idaho Terrace.

Abebe Mengistu: Great management, Great Staff, Great Service. The Bernstein management COVID-19 Emergency Fund Has helped many in need like myself at this unprecedented difficult times. The Manager Ms. Olivia Fitzgibbon is attentive and has great communication skills. The property management Amy has extraordinary personality in reaching out to tenants.
Response: Abebe, thank you for taking the time to shout out our team and leave Idaho Terrace this great review! We couldn't be happier to hear that you've been loving being a part of our community.

Scip Barnhart: The building is very clean, and the lobby especially is very welcoming to visitors and residents. The staff is very quick to respond to requests and support. Life near major universities can be trying when students have to meld with working class people. But the staff do there best to keep noise and commotion in check. The laundry room is clean, the gym is well stocked and clean. The trash shoots are kept as well as can be expected. I am very glad to live here.
Response: Scip - Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are happy to hear you are enjoying your experience at Idaho Terrace. Thanks again!

Anastasiya Gulak: I came from another state last year and was warmly accommodated by the Idaho Terrace management staff. It is very important when you reach out and receive prompt feedback or help especially when you are coming for afar. That personal support and care was necessary at the time. The facility is maintained well (despite its age), and the management finds creative ways to engage and help its residents.

The Watergate Hotel: what do users think?


Catherine Misleh: Worst service I’ve had in a long time - possibly ever. This rating should be negative zero stars. My mother is visiting from out of town (very far away) and I had planned a nice day to include afternoon tea for the both of us as a special treat. We do not get time together very often. Imagine our surprise and disappointment when we arrived and the restaurant had no signs of life - closed without notice. I went to the concierge desk of the Watergate and was informed it had been closed days before with no explanation and that they were sorry but the reservation must have been made through a glitch in their system. The woman behind the counter was very nonchalant and not at all concerned, even when I showed her proof of my reservation. Funny since I received both an email and two text reminders asking me to confirm, and was also charged for a prepaid tea service. The Watergate staff did not offer any recompense, said I would have to resolve the charge to my card online, and to "try Georgetown” for something today. Absolutely unacceptable! I will not be returning and will make sure to recommend against it every time. I thought it would be fun to try, but there are plenty of better other and obviously better options in the area anyway. I should add there were a couple of other guests in front of us who seemed extremely distraught by poor service and their rooms not being ready, so overall I would say this establishment should be passed over in every respect.
Response: Dear Catherine, Here at the Watergate, we make guest experience a priority. We are sorry to learn of your recent troubles with our Afternoon Tea experience. We were open for afternoon tea this day, we are investigating this matter and will be reaching out to you shortly. We thank you for sharing your feedback and hope that you will consider joining us or staying with us in the future. Regards, The Watergate Hotel

Olivier Saint-Vincent: 100% recommended!! If you are looking for a 5 stars ⭐️ hôtel in DC, this is the one. It was perfectly located for us between Georgetown and the Mall (walking distance), and very quiet at the same time. Gym, pool, jacuzzi, library, breakfast are great. You can walk by the Potomac easily… and it’s one of the best rooftop in DC. The architecture is beautiful and bold. The staff is very attentive and always there to help. We can say that the new GM know how to make a stay unforgettable!!!
Response: Dear Olivier, WOW! Thank you for leaving such a detailed and shining review. We are so pleased to hear you decided to stay with us for your visit to DC and made use of our outlets during your enjoyable stay. We will share your feedback to our wonderful GM and our entire team. Please come back soon, we'd love to have you as a guest again. Regards, The Watergate Hotel

Adam Galazka: Absolutely stunning hotel. Amazing location by the Potomac River. Walking distance to many different stores and restaurants. Check in was great. Valet parking on site for $58 a night. Rooms are spacious and the most comfortable bed. Some rooms do have balconies with waterviews but they are a little dirty. When trying to call the front desk it took awhile for them to answer the phone. Besides a couple of those negative we would definitely come back.
Response: Dear Adam, Thank you for a detailed review. It was a pleasure to have you as a guest at The Watergate Hotel. We will be sure to share your remarks with our team. We hope to see you again soon! Regards, The Watergate Hotel

Denny: Obviously a great hotel. Beautiful and clean rooms and amenities. So modern and its history is cool and embraced throughout the entire vibe of the hotel. However, I had kindly asked them to put roses in my Suite Room for Valentine's Day, and, after assuring me they would, there were no flowers or anything in the room, and, on top of that, they double charged me and held us up for 30 minutes at Check-In while I was with my girlfriend trying to get to bed late at night(later corrected and attributed to third-party booking?). A final nail in the coffin, in the morning, a hotel representative entered our room without our permission before our Check-Out time to "put the temperature at 72" and apologized because the room was supposed to be "empty." Truthfully it feels like it could be an unlucky experience at a good hotel, and I might even still recommend it if its within your budget for its pure elegance. But I really thought after all that, they'd give me a night free at least.
Response: Dear Deniz Mete, We are sorry to hear that you had mixed feelings about your stay at The Watergate Hotel. Thank you for taking the time to leave a detailed review. It is important for us to that all guests have a seamless experience. We will have a member of our team reach out to you. Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions, comments or suggestions at info@thewatergatehotel.com. We hope to welcome you back soon for a chance to provide a more improved stay. Regards, The Watergate Hotel

A. H.: Disappointing experience this time around. I’ve stayed at this hotel a few times in the past, but recently it’s gone a little downhill. The mandatory valet parking definitely needs improvement, as the attendants take 20-30 minutes to retrieve or even park your car. They were not at all friendly, barely spoke English, and left my car reeking of weed or tobacco smoke. Absurdly expensive rates given the terrible service. A cheap motel could’ve handled valet parking better. Embarrassing! Room and location are great. Front desk staff are super friendly. But frankly the valet service was so consistently awful over three days, that I probably won’t return again (at least not with a car).
Response: Dear A. H,, Thank you for being a repeat guest at The Watergate Hotel and for your kind comments about the room and location. We are sorry that your experience with valet did not meet your expectations. Our team strives to provide top service and it is unfortunate that you had to encounter this experience. We have shared your feedback with our team. We hope to make it up to you again soon. Regards, The Watergate Hotel

Preeti Dawane: While the staff was great, the hotel itself cannot call itself luxury by any stretch of the imagination. On our arrival to our rooms, our bedsheets were DIRTY WITH STAINS. I have stayed at 3 star hotels where I have NEVER encountered such an issue. For the prices they charge, the Watergate is absolutely not worth the stay. The only reason this hotel gets ANY stars is because of the staff who took care of us. I definitely don’t include all of the front desk staff in that praise. I also was never contacted about the issue with the sheets. I had to follow up about the issue. We also have not received our itemized bill following check out. I’ve really never been more disappointed with a “luxury” hotel than this one. I will NEVER stay here again. Such a rip off.

Princess Good: Overall, this hotel is nice and I would probably stay at it again if I had to. Our double room seemed smaller in person when compared to the online pictures. The modern half-door for the shower was very weird. I don't think the tub was being cleaned while we were there for more than three days. Everything else was decent. I noticed the hotel is not very sustainable. It doesn't seem like they recycle there.
Response: Dear Princess, It was a pleasure to have you as a guest at The Watergate Hotel. Thank you for a detailed review and for sharing your honest feedback. As part of our sustainability measures to save water, we have cards in each room to leave when you want a full cleaning as well as a recycling initiative. We hope to see you again soon. Regards, The Watergate Hotel

Anne: Great views and ambiance. They have blue light gas fireplaces in the middle of the group tables which are really nice. I know every review mentions it, the reviews mention it for a reason: they serve you $18 cocktails from plastic cups! ALSO: PARTIES OF 8 OR MORE HAVE A $100 MINIMUM PER PERSON. It's on their website in small print, but that should be in large print.
Response: Dear Anne, Thank you for your feedback. We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed the views and ambiance of Top of the gate. We will share your comments with our team members. We look forward to welcoming you back soon! Regards, The Watergate Hotel

Andrew Nelle: Beautiful inside and out! Wonderful staff, very accommodating and eager to please. Anwar showed us the infamous Scandal Room 205, this is the room where all the presidential drama of 1972 went down. This hotel ain't cheap, be prepared for the 29$ resort fee and the 50$ parking fee on top of your regular room rate. Pool, hot, tub and sauna are unreal, all saltwater infused. I highly recommend this spot!😎👍
Response: Dear Andrew, Thank you for your review and recommendation. We are so glad you had a wonderful stay and were able to view the Scandal Suite and enjoy Argentta Spa. We cannot thank you enough for choosing The Watergate Hotel as your hotel of choice while in DC - we hope to see you soon! Regards, The Watergate Hotel

Christina Thompson: The valet and bell service was great. However a love cockroach was found in a towel when husband showered. The front desk didn't answer phone after several attempts when we couldn't connect to the wifi. Also, out refrigerator was barely cool. Lastly, the tempering control wouldn't chill the room under 75 degrees.
Response: Dear Christina Thompson, Thank you for your review. We are thrilled to hear of your wonderful experience with our valet and bell service team. We appreciate your feedback and have shared your comments with our operations team. Regards, The Watergate Hotel

The St. Regis Washington, D.C.: what do users think?


Lisa: You will hear the food and beverage director before you see him. During our trip, he raised his voice multiple times quite angrily - it was quite concerning to hear him speak to guest service staff in such a way and that he was comfortable enough to do it in front of guests, too. Otherwise, my husband and I had an absolutely lovely stay. Our room was amazing and there were lots of friendly faces. I also especially enjoyed the pillows, and I wish I had thought to ask what type they were as they were super comfy.

Hampus Engstroem: Don't forget to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏ.ᴄᴏm when booking a hotel. This website will compare thousands of booking web sites and usually will have prices a lot cheaper compared to others! Thank me later! This hotel is one of the highest rated in this area. I have been staying here for a long time. If you decide to stay here you for sure won't regret it. We went to St.Regis afternoon tea to celebrate the cherry blossom season and it didn't disappoint. The place is nice and their tea selection is amazing. It's a set menu. I personally enjoyed the savory part more. While the sweets were well represented and looked amazing, nothing tasted special but the scones. I highly recommend it I just wished that I have the choice of picking what I'd like instead of having little of everything. They offered a to-go box for the rest of the sweets though.

Sade Smith-Edwards: The hotel is amazing and me and my husband went here for the afternoon tea this passed Friday. It was our 5 year anniversary and we were thinking of staying the night after a fun day of hanging out in the city. Our opinion had changed when the person servicing us essentially never addressed me, even when I was the one asking questions. When my husband asked to have champagne, only HE got to taste it and I was blatantly ignored. She had her back to me as often as possible... That is until I was the one paying the check. I have NEVER, and I do mean never, been treated that way in any service capacity. This completely deterred me from book a night there. I'm sure the staff and hotel is wonderful but this was not a good look. And this was our 5 year anniversary. Probably will think twice before considering going here for a stay.

Ghaida Alshabnan: We went to St.Regis afternoon tea to celebrate the cherry blossom season and it didn't disappoint. The place is nice and their tea selection is amazing. It's a set menu. I personally enjoyed the savory part more. While the sweets were well represented and looked amazing, nothing tasted special but the scones. I highly recommend it I just wished that I have the choice of picking what I'd like instead of having little of everything. They offered a to-go box for the rest of the sweets though.

Squirrely: Five stars all around. The rooms are elegant, updated, clean, and comfortable. Each staff member I dealt with went above and beyond to help. I was especially pleased with the front desk employee who grabbed me a cup of coffee in the middle of the night when I had to catch an early flight. The location is excellent and there are plenty of restaurants and attractions within walking distance.

J. Jasmine Villanueva: My husband and I took a last minute trip to Washington and decided to take my parents to this facility and couldn't be happier. Rooms and service were nothing short of amazing. The staff at any St. Regis property NEVER disappoints. Oh, and it's literally a 3 minute walk from the White House and restaurants, etc. I highly recommend this hotel for anyone who is visiting Washington DC.

Sarah Morris: Unfortunately this was a disappointing and underwhelming experience. The hotel is pretty but lacks 5 star service. I have dust allergies and spent most of my time here with a clogged nose which miraculously cleared up when outdoors!! I assume this was to a lack of cleaning of their filtering system. The staff did their best and offered complimentary breakfast but I really cannot excuse having a poor night's sleep in a hotel? Certainly not worth the price ticket and I would choose elsewhere if I return.

Liem Huynh: We stayed for one night in the Metropolitan Suite in June 2022. The room desperately needs renovation and service was nonexistence. Disappointing experience overall. No prearrival email, no response when I emailed the butler service for restaurant reservation, zero communication from the butler during the entire stay. Unfriendly lobby staff, no greeting, had to open the door on my own at times. The Metropolitan Suite was old and in need of a renovation. Dirty pillow cases, worn out carpets, water from faucet smelled a little punky and we even found pieces of shattered glass on the floor. Only positive experience was the check-in, after that everything went down hill. Recommend trying something else while you’re in DC. Much better experience at the Ritz Carltons if you’re a Marriott fan.

Joe J.: Amazing tea experience in DC, probably the best in terms of service, flavor, presentation and selection of teas. The cherry blossom touch is a nice and pleasant surprise. Although it is on the pricey end, definitely recommend!

Ayesha SH: I attended the Whimsy event on April 1. Pros and cons below: Pros: Wine was good. We ordered a Napa cab so it was costly. Ambiance was decent. The best part was their waiters who were super friendly and hospitable. Cons: I was told parking would be validated prior to attending the event. On the day of they refused. We spent upwards of $600 and they wouldn’t validate the parking. Food was ok. I didn’t feel that great later at night. The princess thing was childish, hilarious, and unnecessary. Adults attend these kinds of events not kids. Overall not worth the money they charged us.

Kingbird: what do users think?


Alvaro H. Torres: Exceptional customer service. One of the best French toast I had. Luckily for me, I had two days to try as much breakfast meal. I highly recommend it and it exceeded my expectations. The price is high but you are paying for great quality. After your breakfast you can take a stroll at the water front. I think this is a great selection and you will not be disappointed.

Sydni Hagens: The waitstaff was lovely. Nothing bad to say there, but the afternoon tea left much to be desired. My friend and I have been to many teas around the world and always enjoy trying new ones. This is not an afternoon tea I would recommend to anyone else. The black tea was more gray (like a decaf twinings) and tasted like watery milk. The sandwiches were very basic (although they graciously accommodated a vegetarian request for one of us). The scone tasted like a blueberry muffin, and not like a scone at all. The crepe brûlée was watery and not brûlée’d. Ambiance in the restaurant was awkward and the tables and chairs reminded us of office furniture. The tea service looked like a child’s tea set. This is very overpriced for what it offered. Again, nothing against the staff, just not a good afternoon tea in our opinion. Others in the place raved about it, but we’ve just had so many wonderful afternoon teas, and this wasn’t one of them.

Adam Galazka: Tried the restaurant for a dinner one night and couple of breakfasts while staying at the watergate. Not quite a 5 star experience. For dinner the food was well seasoned but the temperature was luke warm. Not quite what we expected. Service was great. For breakfast, service was great and very fast but again latte was very luke warm. They made it up the 2nd time around. We will definitely come back at some point to give them another try.

Katie Cahill: Made a reservation for a large group (15) for lunch. What a disappointment. The waiter was the only positive part of the experience. Waited for more than an hour for our food, many of which were salads and soup of the day. The salads were wilted, the soup so salty it was nearly inedible, the burgers cooked to death (even though medium was ordered), and the salmon was marginal at best. Being practical, most of us made an attempt to finish our food as to not waste, but terrible. What was worse is the place was nearly empty with only a few other tables occupied. A waste of what was supposed to be a nice lunch at a historic venue.

Viviana Shanks: If you are staying at the Watergate (or just considering eating there) avoid at all costs, for breakfast or dinner. The restaurant looked nice and fancy, so we decided to give it a shot! What a disappointment. A HUGE comedy of errors. Our starter took 20min to arrive. Which ok is fine... they probably made it from scratch? We ordered the chicken (that would comes with purée) and scallops. It took 35 min after the starter for our main courses to arrive. Meaning, almost an hour after we ordered it! My chicken came with French fries, to which I was told that they ran out of purée, but no one thought it was wise to inform me before the meal arrived. - they tried to make it right by giving me ratatouille and broccoli. I started eating, my chicken was not baked, but yes boiled a couple or more days ago. They probably put it on the microwave as the chicken was stone cold on the inside. When I point that out, I’m told « they were probably waiting for the scallops to be ready » doesn’t excuse it. They took my chicken away for an extra 10min to warm it up. Same thing, still cold but I went with it. Our waiter took it out the bill, but the entire experience was miserable. Table next to us had a 21st birthday, and same, they almost all ordered the chicken too and they left the restaurant with their plates untouched. So my case was not isolated. To make the matter worse, the next morning we head there to have breakfast, we are rudely told that there is a 45min wait for breakfast. We look inside the restaurant and it’s half empty, and is a buffet. They apparently couldn’t manage to turn around the few tables they were seri I quickly enough. Pro tip, room service is way quicker. They should seriously think of changing chefs as I feel we were lied to. Would definitely stay back at the hotel but NOT go back to the restaurant.
Response: Dear Viviana, Reviews shared by our guests always provide us with magnificent value as they allow us to fully appreciate what guests most enjoyed and how an experience can be elevated even further. While we are happy to read that our dining room looked so inviting, we are sorry to learn of your delays in service. Our approach to a typical dinner service is to let each course settle while allowing our guests to visit with one another between the serving of courses. We appreciate that there is also value in understanding the desired pace of our guests and in this situation it appears that we did not do so. Your added comments regarding your meal leave us concerned and while we assure you that each meal is prepared to order, I would like to extend a more personal apology and I am hopeful that we might be able to connect with a call later in the week. As your time allows, I encourage you to email me at the address provided below, perhaps including a convenient time that I may be in touch and the best way to reach you. Once more, we thank you for your feedback and I look forward to speaking with you soon. All the best, Pascal Forotti Managing Director Pforotti@thewatergatehotel.com

DeMoN85 “DeMoN85”: As you can see from the pictures this is a very beautiful place to go. The food was freshly made and very delicious! Bar tender was friendly and attentive along with most of the staff. The reason for the three stars was the snobby inattentive waiter. He didn't pay attention to our party when we asked him to keep checks separately. Then proceeded to tell us at the end that he would not do that for us an could only take up to 4 different payments. We had a party of 12 eating there an after getting the manager involved he did his best to accommodate us as we previously requested. However this was not the only reason for this rating. The restaurant was not busy yet the waiter felt the need to take a table away from where we were sitting while we were eating. He was also quite rude to us when asking if we wanted dessert stating "the kitchen is closing so if you're going to want dessert you better get it now!" If we minus the snobby attitude of that waiter everything else was great!
Response: Dear James, Our team is always appreciative of guest reviews as they allow us the opportunity to learn what guests most loved about their dining experience and where there may be opportunity to elevate the experience even further. While we are pleased that the talents of our culinary team captivated your attention, we regret that other aspects of your visit did not shine as brightly. Should your time allow, I would like to extend a more personal apology, perhaps with a telephone call. I am also hopeful that during that conversation I can learn more about your visit so that we can ensure future guests are not left to form similar impressions. On behalf of all of us at Kingbird, we so enjoyed hosting you and we look forward to doing so again in the weeks and months ahead. Before that though, I invite you to reach out to me with an ideal time that I can be in touch, using the email address provided below. Warm Regards, Sami Katrib Director of Food & Beverage skatrib@thewatergatehotel.com

Alex Holston: The best place to have dinner before a show at the Kennedy Center. I go back all the time. The cocktails are my favorite part, as well as the priced fix menu.
Response: Dear Alex, Our Prix-Fixe dinner menu is a worthwhile experience for those visiting The Kennedy Center and we are thrilled to read that your experience was so perfectly orchestrated. On behalf of all of us, including our talented mixologists who have created an innovative cocktail menu, we thank you once more and we invite you to hurry back just as soon as you can. All the best, Kingbird at The Watergate Hotel

Jessica M: Excellent dinner here, worth a try. Came to eat with a couple of friends before a show at the Kennedy Center. Wait staff was attentive, engaging, and helpful, we had plenty of time to eat 3 courses and get to our show. Not only was the food delicious, but the price was reasonable for what was served. Among us we had the pork belly, rack of lamb, and rack of pork. I appreciated the manager on duty, Hope, taking the time to talk to us about the hotel's transformation and willingness to entertain our questions. I will definitely return very soon! Oh, and if you're interested in non-alcoholic drinks, I recommend "Cinnamon", a refreshing cinnamon tea concoction! I'll need to ask for the recipe!
Response: Dear Jessica, Being so close to The Kennedy Center, we have the delight in welcoming many pre-theatre guests and we thank you and your friends for allowing us to acquaint you with Kingbird. Our culinary team is thrilled that you enjoyed each of your courses and we are elated to read that Hope and the service team took such great care of you. Once more, it was a pleasure to host you and we trust that you will be back for another “Cinnamon” and dinner one day soon. Warm Regards, Kingbird at The Watergate

mingyue Liu: I’m from Boston. I checked online and try to find a good place to eat breakfast. And I’m kinda disappointed because the food was less and cold. And didn’t filled up when the tray was empty. The tea and coffee u need ask for. This buffet cost 25/per person and will charge 18% tips. I didn’t feel happy about that. Not good breakfast choice.
Response: Dear mingyue Liu, Warm greetings from Kingbird. It was a pleasure to have you join us and we appreciate you passing along your comments. Our new Executive Chef, Sebastien Giannini, is in the process of crafting new menus for each of our meal periods and the valuable feedback highlighted within your review will certainly be shared with him. We apologize if your experience fell short of delighting and we hope that we might one day see you again so that you can explore the new breakfast dishes. Until then. All the best, Kingbird at The Watergate Hotel

TRS- Private: It’s hard to write the review for this place. The service was not bad, in fact the team were all extremely professional and very pleasant. However, it was tediously slow, despite an abundance of staff. It’s almost like there are too many people working here, I’ve seen Denny’s wait staff handle 10 times the number of customers and do so 10 times more efficiently. It is a shame because it does detract from the experience. It’s just docile here. Like many of the other reviews about the food, Ours was excellent but the portions were pitifully small. I happen to like small portions but here they have taken the philosophy to a ludicrous level. And given the prices, it’s hard to leave satisfied. As I say, it’s hard to write this review without being influenced by all the factors. The food is good, you just have to order a little more than you normally would, the service is good, if you are patient and the ambiance is lovely. I would certainly recommend this place, but with strong caveats of these factors. If wonky management would take note of the consistent reviews of this nature and just make things a little more snappy and up the portion sizes by a few percentage points. Then Kingbird would be a top venue in Washington which definitely needs more options like this, especially over in this part of town.
Response: Greetings, It was a pleasure to have you join us and we thank you for sharing your thoughtful and thorough review. On behalf of all of us at Kingbird, we want you to be assured that details like those you have written do provide us with great value as it’s always helpful to gain insight as to what guests most enjoyed and how the experience can be further enhanced. We hope you can accept our apologies for any service delays and have trust in knowing that your feedback will be shared with our culinary team. Our Kingbird team appreciates your confidence and any recommendations you might pass along and we look forward to fully impressing the next time you visit. All the best, Kingbird at The Watergate Hotel

Ashley Emtcheu: The food is delicious, the place is decorated beautiful with Christmas decorations besides its classy and upscale look. Wasn't able to try a drink I was recommended to try by the server but overall great experience. Place is located in a great location which is great if your wanting to get great photos with friends/family. Parking Garage is 2 minutes away in walking distance to this restaurant which is very convenient. 👍🏾

Zuleirys Santana Rodriguez: Amazing customer service! The outdoor dining is just soo extremely gorgeous, spacious and clean in every way. You have a lovely view of the water, the Sweden Embassy, and just the river! The food was just next level, specially the octopus that was cooked to perfection and I will certainly have it again when I come back to bring my boyfriend.

IamJoedie S: This was my first time and the experience was awesome. We came for a birthday dinner. A party of 12 arriving at 5 PM on a Sunday. We had two servers they were on top of everything. There was never a moment a glass was empty. Food service was quick hot and absolutely delicious. I had the steak was absolutely surprise when the potato came out with macaroni and cheese…must order if, no when you come. If you’re looking for a sexy restaurant to have a brunch, lunch and or dinner this is definitely the spot it overlooks the water great date spot. I will definitely come back again. Next time for the brunch. I hear that it is phenomenal. Come. Eat. Drink. Enjoy!

jen w: I gave this 3 stars because of a couple reasons first we had a reservation Saturday at 1:30 pm for their tapas brunch. They were super slow getting our food to us at the beginning. We ordered two rounds of food before the waitress came back and told us it was last call. We were barely there an hour. There is a 2 hour limit, I feel that if they have reservations till a certain hour they should allow the two hour minimum for people. It’s 64.95 per person they aren’t doing a favor for anyone. Next we chose to sit inside and it was obnoxiously loud. There was a group of people that were talking and screaming to each other, while I’m glad they were having a good time management should have asked them to simmer down because all the rest of us could to was watch them because u couldn’t talk for the noise. Having said all that, the food was very good. We opted for Bellinis and Mimosas. They were very good. The waiters walked around with carafes of Champagne and refilled you. My glass never got empty. I would go back here but make an earlier reservation and in cooler weather where I could it on the patio so I don’t have to deal with the noise.

Renee McCracken: Mother's Day Brunch at Sequoia has now become our new tradition. The food was excellently prepared and the service was outstanding. The entertainment was a great addition to our experience. I did have one hiccup during our time there but it was promptly handled and it was like it never happened. I love Sequoia and will definitely recommend and return.

Vy H.: Came here recently Saturday night for a private holiday event—had a great time! The restaurant is huge and beautifully decorated to fit the Christmas/Holiday theme. We had open bar—they have a huge selection of liquor! Food was decent—the hors d'oeuvres were delicious, the main dishes were just okay. Staff are all pretty friendly. There’s a coat check room downstairs when you enter, and an elevator if you don’t want to walk up all the stairs.

John Varkey: We came for an anniversary dinner. The hostesses were a bit surly and disinterested but our waiter was great. The views are fabulous. My wife had the crab cakes and I had the lobster scampi. They were both fabulous but according to my wife the lobster had the edge. We went for a nice stroll along the water and around Georgetown after dinner. A very nice evening was had.

Kat B: Loved this place so much. My partner and I came here for our anniversary, not only was the view beautiful but the energy/service of the staff was amazing . The food was spectacular, definitely get the burrata if they have it ! We were pretty full but still made room for dessert and an espresso which was also delicious . Definitely recommend for a date night/ celebration . Prices were in line with the portions/ambiance .

Crystal Sings: Beautiful simply Beautiful 💜My daughter and I brought my mom to last Saturday’s brunch for her 80th birthday and we really enjoyed the service, food, and ambiance of the restaurant. George, our waiter was awesome and made our experience so memorable! Thank you George!

elizabeth rose: Visiting from florida and this restaurant was highly recommended by locals and im delighted i took their advice! The atmosphere was great, very inviting and scenic, indoor and outdoor seating offered with a nice view of the river. food was really good and exceeded expectations and the server Dominique went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our experience :)

Café Riggs: what do users think?


R. Michael Burns: The pancakes I had here were perhaps the best I have ever eaten, due in large part to the lavender honey butter, a truly unique flavor that I absolutely loved. The pancakes themselves were large and lovely -- fluffy inside, nicely caramelized on the outside. A bit pricey, but worth every penny and then some. I was less in love with the Italian chicken sausage, which was a bit dense and ever-so-slightly gamey somehow. Not bad, really, but based on the pancakes I expected better. I also wish they had a greater variety of non-alcoholic drinks. The atmosphere has a sort of old-school elegance with some really nice art deco accents and high, molded ceilings with large windows, giving the place a nice openness and making it a very nice spot for a fancy-but-not-too-fancy breakfast.

Muniba Khan: My friend and I came to Cafe Riggs on a Monday night while we were in from out of town. We were able to book a same day reservation, which was really convenient. The place is really elegant and beautiful, and the service was also stellar. I got the salmon and my friend got the halibut and both were incredibly delicious! We also got the cherry blossom sundae from the seasonal dessert menu and it was really great! I only wish that it had more cherry blossom and less vanilla. My friend tried some of their drinks- they had a special on Martinis for Monday, so she tried the three minis and said her favorite by far was the Vesper. Also, there was a cherry blossom vermouth cocktail off the dessert specials menu that she really liked.

Food Enthusiast: Gorgeous place! I tried the happy hour menu, the drinks were very good and the bartender was a very kind and thoughtful man. If you want to bring a friend to a beautiful place with great ambiance and good food/drinks, look no further! I will definitely come back to try their breakfast menu.

Bethany: Beautiful and delicious experience. This place was amazing. I had the Cafe Royale? It was eggs benedict with smoked salmon and it was absolutely perfect. It was more expensive than I would normally go for for breakfast but it was so good I would do it again. The room was beautiful, the tables were very modern and chic and the food was delicious.

Наталья Устименко: very nice interior, the atmosphere has a good time while eating, the hostess was very nice. the pros end there. we ordered Eggs Royale, I really wanted to eat hash brown, in the end they brought us a dish with overcooked potatoes (there were fewer potatoes than fried crust), very salty salmon ( there were a lot) and a salad with CHILI PEPPER. I can’t eat spicy at all, this ingredient was not indicated in the description of the dish. when I mentioned this to the waiter, he replied that in the US everywhere it is better to ask if there is a spicy dish, especially in Mexican restaurants. But this place is not a Mexican restaurant! I did not receive an apology, only a mild response that they say it was my fault that I did not know in advance. in my opinion, when you pay $21 for a dish, you can hope that after it you will not have heartburn and feel unwell (I had). too bad breakfast in such a well appointed place could have been very nice. but he wasn't

Christina Zizzo: Love the vibe. European feel with European service... Slightly slower so don't go in a rush but the staff is so accommodating and the food is delicious and fresh and you get great portions. Favorite cafe in DC! Inside and out is Instagram worthy too 📸

harrisonaslami: Honestly the atmosphere alone is to die for. Went for an early lunch/late brunch on a Thursday. Was seated immediately - lots of seating. Ordered drinks and food and all of it arrived to the table within 5 minutes, presented well with fresh ingredients. Not exactly cheap but not outlandishly priced. Great service. Will come here at least once every time I visit.

Erica Ortiz: This transformed bank space wows with decor, satisfies with food, and stuns with service. The menu could benefit from more raw bar selections, or light fare for after work and happy hour crowds (dinner starts at 5:30), and some additional entree selections. That said, everything I have had here has been delicious and straightforward. A great place for a business lunch, or cocktail hour.

Adam Riemer: Ok TL:DR top ten French fries in the country. They’re right up there with the potato pillows at Arnauds in New Orleans. That’s why five stars instead of three and a half. The fries are crispy on the outside, salted perfectly and melt in your mouth. The server and hostess are incredibly fun and friendly. They’re also professional. Once small issue we had is that we wanted to use our coupon from open table, but it didn’t work because I messed up the date. I asked the hostess if I could rebook but she said it would be fine and was more in a hurry to listen, she just wanted to seat us. To be fair she genuinely didn’t understand why I wanted to rebook, but it’s no big deal. She did her job and when I requested a different table she was very professional and made it happen. She was fantastic, friendly and wonderful. It would have been nice to use the coupon though. I fully enjoyed the Cabernet Merlot blend from Markham and my friend thought the Rose was good. He likes sweet wines and they don’t have any, including in the sparkling section so this was a great alternative. The mussels were delicious, but the fries are the show stopper. My burger came out dry and overcooked to the point where I shoveled it all down as quick as possible so I could just get through it. The lobster ravioli was over cooked and tough. But it is what it is. I would absolutely recommend this place based on the atmosphere, fries and cocktails for a business happy hour or networking event. The atmosphere is perfect for date night, but the food wasn’t prepared right so I would not go here for an actual date. It was likely just an off day. If you’re looking for a bachelorette party, brunch spot or drinks with the girls, this is a definite yes!!!

Eean Levin: A beautiful property and close location to all of the major DC attractions. You won't find and cheap eats or drinks here but the food is fantastic and wonderful service and ambiance.

Rosewood Washington, D.C.: what do users think?


C. Pine: Best hotel in Georgetown. I love the charm of this hotel right in the heart of everything. The friendliest staff and impeccable service and luxurious accommodations while steps away from shopping and more dining options. The library/reception area is a cozy and elegant pace for a nightcap or to lounge. The rooftop offers a fantastic view of the cityscape and is a great for private functions or if you need a peaceful place to hang out.
Response: Dear C. Pine: Thank you very much for this delightful review! We look forward to having you back with us in the near future! Sincerely, Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Mandy Jacqueline: The Lobby Bar in the Rosewood was amazing. Great service and wonderful drinks if you’re looking for high-class
Response: Dear Mandy: Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We are delighted you enjoyed your experience and look forward to having you back with us. Sincerley, CUT DC and Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Shana Acquisto (Luxury Realtor): Stopped in for a drink on the rooftop. Beautiful atmosphere. Drinks were pricey and honestly a bit too much sugar for our liking but some may prefer that. Very friendly staff once we got up to the rooftop and great service.
Response: Dear Shana Acquisto: Thank you for your kind review of CUT Above and for your honest feedback. We have shared this with the team. We look forward to having you back with us soon. Sincerely Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Jay Gif: Staff were friendly and helpful. Valet offered to keep Tesla charged overnight which was great! The room was THE quietest hotel room we've ever stayed in (no HVAC noise at all). Bed was comfortable, bathroom nice although some paint bubbling in ceiling. The rooftop spa and bar looked amazing but too cold to enjoy. Deducted a star for value, was very expensive and just didn't quite deliver what I felt it should at that price...
Response: Dear Mr. Gif: Thank you for your kind review of our hotel, much appreciated! I have made note of your comments and am grateful for those. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again very soon. Please let us know if we can be of any assistance in the meantime. Sincerely, Gabor L. Vida Managing Director Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Tania Ferguson: The Rosewood DC is remarkably disappointing. More expensive than comparable rooms at the Ritz or Four Seasons, there are essentially no luxury amenities. The pool is the size of two hot tubs. Sadly, Cut the restaurant had a kitchen fire and therefore there is no way to get anything to eat at the hotel. I had to go grocery shopping. They did not offer any discount for this inconvenience. The did make the minibar complementary except for liquor….and there is essentially nothing to eat in the minibar. The room is incredibly small and the bathroom hard to manage in its size. The “partial canal view” is just a brick wall. One must stand to look out the window if water is to be seen-and only then with great focus. More accurately this is a brick wall view. There is no spa, the fitness facility is smaller than a bathroom with no modern equipment in it except a single peleton bike with bad pedals. The fitness facility is a really big disappointment-I’ve had to find a gym to go work out at. So I’ve had to leave the premises for food, workout, spa services….It’s a travesty to the Rosewood brand. They should close the hotel and renovate, modernize-or drop the prices to reflect the current facade.
Response: Dear Ms. Ferguson: Thank you for posting your thoughts about your recent stay with us. I am very sorry that it did not meet your expectations. We, too, are very sad that the incident in the kitchen has resulted in us not being able to occupy that space and provide the In-Room Dining you were hoping for - we hope to have this matter rectified shortly. I do hope that you enjoyed the complimentary breakfast we had set up in the lounge for all our guests. I also hope that the fresh fruit bowls that we delivered to you helped the situation. The room you occupied (about 420 square feet) does have unobstructed views of the canal, I believe the brick wall to which you are referring is the exterior wall of the building on the opposite side of the canal. As you know, there is no reference to a spa on our site but we do offer in-room massage services - one of which was offered to you with our compliments. We shall review the verbiage regarding the fitness center but the listing of equipment on the page is accurate. Overall, I am sorry that we didn't meet your expectations and hope that the reduction of your room rate that was offered helped to ease this a bit. I hope we have the chance to welcome you back in the near future and be able to deliver the experience you expect. Sincerely, Timothy Edgecombe Director of Sales

Mohsen: Enjoyed one week of stay at this hotel. Everything was perfect and felt personal. Fantastic staff.
Response: Dear Mohsen: Thank you so much for your kind comments - it was fantastic having both you and your fellow travellers with us. I sincerely hope we can welcome you back in the very near future! Sincerely, Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Kelly Smith: Great hotel. Near everything in Georgetown. Service is amazing. Nicest place in the area.
Response: Dear Ms. Smith: Thank you very much for your lovely review of Rosewood Washington, D.C. We sincerely hope we have the chance to welcome you back in the very near future. Sincerely, Timothy Edgecombe Director of Sales

Andrew Carmichael: Amazing hotel experience in a wonderful part of DC. It’s a smaller hotel that does a stellar job of balancing the finesse of a larger hotel with the intimacy of a boutique one. The team remembers everyone’s name and does to whatever they can to make your stay a memorable one.
Response: Dear Mr. Carmichael: Thank you very much for this wonderful review. We are delighted that you enjoyed the intimate experience that makes "The Gem of Georgetown" such a favourite among its guests. We hope to welcome you back in the near future. Sincerely, Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Lisa Morin: This lovely, small hotel was well located in Georgetown. The room was nice, quiet and the bed was very comfortable. The service from all staff was exceptional. They attended to every detail to make our stay a great one!
Response: Dear Ms. Morin: Thank you for your kind review of our hotel, much appreciated! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again very soon. Please let us know if we can be of any assistance in the meantime. Sincerely, Gabor L. Vida Managing Director Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Addison Muska: Spacious room with good lighting. Pleasant stay with friendly staff and quality amenities. Location is close to all major sights and places. Would stay again
Response: Dear Addison, Thank you for your kind review of our hotel, much appreciated! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again very soon. Please let us know if we can be of any assistance in the meantime. Sincerely, Gabor L. Vida Managing Director Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Mandarin Oriental, Washington D.C.: what do users think?


Terrie Jeschke: I am giving a 5 because I have given lesser places a 5. It is very luxurious and the staff is superbly courteous without being stuffy. It was immaculate. We had a king deluxe and the bathroom was amazing. Linens were luxurious. The food was delicious and the pig roast on Thursday night at $32/plate was a bargain. They would box up what you could not eat and let you take it with you. I did not use the spa or pool areas. The only criticism I have is that there was no little store in which you could pick up drinks or snacks to have in your room. There was a refrigerator which housed some drinks/snacks before but they had been removed. So, in the evening, your only option was room service and to get a cup of coffee and a few cookies took close to an hour......plus a tip. There is no place within walking distance to pick up such items either. If you are used to those things in the evening or have small children, bring it with you.

Y. Lee: First time staying here and definitely won’t be my last time. The service was like no other! SUPERB! I can’t believe their is still service like this out there. Every single employee we ran into was amazing. I’m blown by the service. The rooms are very nice and clean. The hotel itself is very classy and comfortable. The food surpasses my expectations for hotel food and my kids loves their breakfast. The location was perfect because it was close to everything, but far enough from the crowd to keep the atmosphere intimate. The hotel is very kid friendly as well being that it’s an upscale hotel, so don’t be intimidated if you have kids and would like to stay here.

Hampus Engstroem: Make sure to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏ.ᴄᴏm when booking your room. This web site will compare countless hotel sites and normally will have rooms much cheaper than others! You're welcome :)! This place is one of my favorites in this area. I have been staying here for a very long time. If you decide to stay here you for sure won't be let down. First time staying here and definitely won’t be my last time. The service was like no other! SUPERB! I can’t believe their is still service like this out there.

Sophia Usmani: Wow!! First class service all the way! We’ve stayed here several times and it’s always been exceptional. But this time, the staff went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. In particular, Ignacio (the restaurant manager) took amazing care of us. My son has severe food allergies. Ignacio went out of his way to make sure my son could eat safely. I am so grateful for Ignacio and the restaurant team. A truly wonderful experience. Thank you to everyone for making our stay so wonderful.

Brandon Hutchinson: I stayed for two nights while in town for a concert. The room was great, it came with a comfortable bed, clean sheets, and an incredible view. The bathroom was really delightful with a grand bathtub and a walk-in shower. While staying here, I used the pool located in the spa, and while I enjoyed it on a quieter day of the week, I could see the pool area becoming very loud on a busier day. I had room service the second night, the service was very good, and so was the food. Very efficient, and on time to the minute of their estimated time I was given when I placed the order. Finally for my pros list is the location, you’re just South of the mall right at the Washington Monument. The only reason it doesn’t get 5 stars from me was due to state of some of the public spaces. The lobby had a few water spot damage areas on the ceiling, and all the air vents had a ton of dust build up around them.

Highly Favored: For a five star hotel I was expecting the same or better service like The Ritz or Four seasons. Pros: -We love our room with views of The Jefferson, spacious bathroom and excellent tub. Great location to all the attractions, and lovely hotel. -Nice pool -Friendly valet and staff Cons: - No turn down service, there's a note to leave a card on the bed if we want our linen changed the next day ( - Sauna/steam room bathroom area are not accessible to hotel guests unless you're booking one of their spa treatments (even though mandates were lifted almost 3 weeks ago in DC) -No coffee maker or refreshments in room

Lydsweet25 Sweet: I treated myself to a spa day for my birthday. Andrew, my masseuse was wonderful. Really did a great job on working on my aches. Tonya who did my facial was amazing as well. I was surprised that the facial did not include extracting however. The ladies at the front desk were very pleasant as well. One in particular (did not catch her name) went over and beyond to make me feel special. She even sang happy birthday to me and offered a complimentary glass of champagne. Even though I cannot treat myself often to the Mandarin, I had a truly an amazing time. I felt so relaxed and special I highly recommend coming here for a spa day.

Jon Shalala: Beautiful hotel, the hotel staff hustles! They try to go above and beyond. The bottle water is complementary and it’s really good. You definitely pay a premium but if you’re looking for 5 star service this is a great spot. My girlfriend loved the hotel. The hot chocolate at the bar is great.

Joy Bai: We enjoyed three nights stay in December. Our room was a double queen on floor 7 with a river view, very quiet and spacious. The hotel is beautifully decorated and super clean. The staff are warm and make you feel at home. Justin at the front desk made sure our stay is comfortable. Overall my family had a memorable time.

Brandon Nichols: Stayed here for our Honeymoon, and were treated like VIPs from the moment we walked through the door. We spent our days visiting the Smithsonian and came back in the evening to enjoy a drink from the bar while sitting in the garden area. Our room looked over the water and could see the Jefferson memorial. Used the concierge for information and recommendations regularly, but on the night I explained how we wanted something as our nice evening out and what we were hoping he took care of everything and planned a night out for my spouse and I. They arranged dinner, tickets to a show and even provided us with one of the hotels limousines to drive us for the evening as a wedding gift from the hotel.

Renaissance Washington, DC Downtown Hotel: what do users think?


Rebecca C: I would give this a solid 3/3.5 stars. I must admit, since it’s a 4 star hotel, we expected a bit more. I’m going to guess they had to cut some amenities due to COVID. The night staff seemed friendlier than the morning staff. The bathroom was fine (I read a few before going that it was moldy). The water does take quite some time to stop dripping after you turn it off but the pressure was fine. You can definitely tell they used bleach/serious cleaners. Did notice some stains on the shower curtain and bed but could just be from use over the years. The best part really was location in terms of distance from certain attractions. That and the fact that Starbucks was in the lobby (they open early but close early as well). They also have a easy to use and relatively spacious safe. If I’m honest, I can’t say we will be choosing this hotel again the next time but overall, it was a fine experience.

Wesley Sparks: I am a loyal Marriott member, Platinum Elite so far this year. Overall this location is great for Convention Center trade shows. I ate an omelette for breakfast and it was definitely than I expected for a busy morning service time. Did not try the restaurant for other meal times, but the bar is pretty nice and well run. The beer list leaves a little to be desired. Main thing that keeps it from getting five stars is somehow I got placed in a “European” room, which means small bed, small room.

Derek Kruger: Make sure to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏ.ᴄᴏm when booking any hotel. This web site will compare thousands of booking websites and typically will have rooms much cheaper than others! Thank me later on! This resort is one of the highest rated in the area. I've been staying here for years. If you stay for a few nights you for sure won't regret it. This is definitely a four star hotel. The staff are amazing. They were welcoming and accommodating. The room was clean, well appointed and comfortable. I had a nice city view on the 8th floor. Starbucks is conveniently located on the main level. I will definitely be back.

Nikki SKD: No frills as expected, bathroom was clean but bed linens had a very musty odor when we first arrived as if the room had not been used or refreshed recently. Parking was relatively simple (about $30 per day), within walking distance of many sites if walking is your thing. No microwave in room was a bummer since indoor dining wasn't a safe personal option at many locations. If be inclined to stay again if it were for not having a microwave.

M M: The location of the hotel ist great. You can reach most attraction in Washington DC per foot. The staff at the front desk was friendly. The cleanliness left a lot to be desired. Our room was completely forgotten to be cleaned for one day! Instead of a clean room and fresh towels we got a page long detailed letter of apology. Does this happen possibly often🤔?

Adrienne Bowden: Overall a really nice hotel. Can't use the bathroom in the lobby unless you have a hotel key (I was there for a conference so I didn't have one). Starbucks in the lobby was out of many things. Don't waste your time standing in their line. The hotel food was great

Lou Costanza: This is definitely a four star hotel. The staff are amazing. They were welcoming and accommodating. The room was clean, well appointed and comfortable. I had a nice city view on the 8th floor. Starbucks is conveniently located on the main level. I will definitely be back.

B. W.: Just had a bad three-night stay. The hotel has fancy lobby area, but hotel room is showing its age. Very thin walls with bad soundproofing. Can hear street noises clearly even on the 9th floor, as well as people talking in neighboring rooms. Carpet is dirty. Underground garage for the $35 per day self-parking is confusing, and with rats hanging around too. As a Marriott platinum member, did not feel much recognition at the hotel. They are still keeping the club lounge 'suspended' due to covid, even though pretty much everything else is coming back to normal. The only option they offer to platinum member as breakfast benefit is pathetic: choose between one muffin and one croissant, an oatmeal, and coffee/juice. I asked the restaurant to have these packed to take to my room. Was told to wait, and was simply ignored for about 15 minutes. Finally someone came to ask "muffin or croissant" and left. Waited about another 10 minutes, received it without any drink. Had to ask again for my coffee. By then a couple groups behind me had been greeted into the restaurant, had their breakfast, and left. Upon checking out, the front desk told me that the restaurant gave me $20 credit, which she applied to the charge of my parking. The total charge would be $85 instead of $105. However, in the end, two charges of $85 and $20 were made to my credit card after the pending period. NO credit after all. Just unbelievable.

Carolyn Montoya: I believe this hotel is under rated! I loved my room and appreciated the convenience of a Starbucks in the lobby. I had a rocky flight coming in and the woman in the hotel snack shop was so helpful in finding ginger ale for me! This trip was for a conference, next time would stay here as a tourist as I love the location!
