A wonderful and unique experience for me. It was better than my hopes and expectations. The staff, all of them, were courteous and helpful. The food, in-room service and dining room was scrumptious. I loved every minute even as the Corona Virus was beginning to affect all, I'm so glad I got to enjoy the Watergate before the COVID-19 real craziness set in.

    They didn't offer a complementary/continental breakfast. I would expect something like that for $400 /night. You could get 2 eggs and a slice of bacon for $24. Lesser hotels offer that closer to the mall. The room was pretty small too. There's also the $30/day resort fee. Not sure what I got for that. Maid staff was friendly and kept the room impeccably clean
