Beautiful Renovation

Posted Jan 11, 2017
The extensive renovation of this property was completed only a few months ago which highlights the 60' modernism of the structure while adding some interesting design features including beautiful lobby, nice pool and gym. Rooms were well appointed with usb charges, lighting options and tub. The room rate offered good value - my only complaint was all the incidental costs. I found the restaurant, bar, spa services and hotel parking really expensive. There is street parking (free nights and weekends) and an underground parking lot a block away which is about a third of the cost of hotel parking, also a Whole Foods within a 10 minute walk.

Very Friendly Staff

Posted Jan 2, 2017
Pros: Staff is very Friendly!
Cons: No clocks in rooms, In room dining menu limited.
Location: Great Location
My stay at The Watergate was for New Years Eve and sight seeing in the DC area. First the good on The Watergate Hotel. Staff is very friendly and accomadating to guest. The Hotel is very modern and chic. Indoor pool and spa are top notch. Only setbacks are no clocks in rooms, entrance to hotel a bit of a challenge for taxi's etc. Room service food is very high quality but a bit pricey and menu is limited. Location is great to all monuments etc Enjoyed my stay!

Watergate Hotel. The Best in Washington!

Posted Dec 24, 2016
The Hotel Staff is outstanding. Always polite and making the extra effort to make your stay the best! Rooms are new with a crisp modern design. I have stayed in a lot of nice hotels, e.g. Ritz Carlton, and this one is equally as great. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back whenever we are in DC.

A Hotel with historical context

Posted Dec 21, 2016
All newly upgraded rooms. Seemed like a plumbing issue was going on in my second room but apart from that, outstanding stay and great customer service. Some rooms only have showers, so make sure to request bath tub if needed. Great view of Potomac!

Amazing Staff!

Posted Dec 16, 2016
Pros: The Staff!
Cons: The food in the hotel restaurant could be better. We only had breakfast,
Location: Perfect location!! Nice restaurants nearby.
The Staff of the Watergate Hotel went out of their way to assist us with our every need. They were friendly, courteous and went beyond the call of duty to make our stay memorable. Marcus checked us in and provided assistance with making birthday arrangements for our daughter. Troy actually walked us to the closest CVS to ensure we were able to take care of our needs. The newly renovated facility is beautiful, sleek and ultra modern. The rooms are lovely and provide the comfort we desired. We highly recommend this hotel and will stay again in the future!!!
