Pros: Everything
Cons: Just a bottle opener
One comment: The refrigerator was very nicely stocked but I couldn't find a bottle opener. Perhaps you could make this a little more visible. But the hotel was excellent... Thank you for your consideration.

Very pleased!

Posted Mar 1, 2017
We stayed at the Watergate for three nights over the weekend. The location of the hotel on the Potomac is inviting for casual walks or jogging. Our breakfast at the hotel was outstanding and there are some fine restaurants located within walking distance. The Watergate hotel fully deserves its high rating. The staff was consistently professional, friendly, and helpful. All of our experiences at this hotel were positive. I would be hard pressed to suggest how our stay at the Watergate might have been improved.

Pros: Great, comfortable room with congenial and gregarious hotel staff.
Cons: The restaurant downstairs was extremely good for breakfast, though lackluster for dinner.
After a long day walking/biking up and down the Mall, the hotel staff kindly greeted us with an upgraded room. We went to our room, relaxed in the very comfortable bed while watching TV on the very large, HD flatscreen they provided. We went down to dinner, and after the extremely, extremely filling meal, I went to the gym which had very good equipment. The treadmills had a great interface, on that saved your progress, and that allowed you to surf the web, watch YouTube, and access television. We returned to our room where we slept comfortably. The next morning, we dropped off one of our bags to go to the Supreme Court (something I suggest anyone in DC do). We returned later that day to get our bag. While we had already checked out of our room, we were allowed to sit in both the lobby and the comfortable lounge/library. We left, and while we weren't able to use the complimentary car service, we appreciated the option. We left extremely satisfied, having stayed at a hotel that exceeded our expectations, especially for the price.

24th Anniversary Retreat

Posted Feb 21, 2017
We loved this hotel! It's the best one we've stayed at. It's walking distance to the Kennedy Center. We decided to enjoy relaxing at the hotel the next day instead of walking because it's so nice.

Staff was excellent! Food was excellent as well! They did a nice job in providing a luxurious experience. My only downfall was that the room was a bit on the small side and the bed was not that comfortable.
