Our stay here was fabulous. While we have stayed at a number of places in DC (RC and Jefferson), the service, the rooms, and quality of everything and the ability of the staff to accommodate our stay was exemplary. We arrived late at the Blue Duck (midnight) and they still served us outside-like a private dining. Great experience. Stay there if you can. It makes a huge difference.
The Park Hyatt Washington DC provided little value for the money. Rooms were over-priced, and the charge for parking was outrageous! Rooms were decorated in a minimalist fashion. Bathrobes provided for guests were tattered, and no ice was provided unless specifically requested. The room did furnish the guests with bottled water daily. Doormen were extremely polite and helpful in procuring cabs and providing directions. If you want to eat in the Blue Duck Tavern, I highly recommend placing a reservation at your earliest opportunity, and if you want to have a drink in the Lounge arrive way before cocktail hour in order to get a table. The thermostat in the room obviously did not work, and water pressure in the shower was very poor. Will not use this hotel again.
"Profitable but not luxurious"
I am sure the Park Hyatt Washington is a quite profitable hotel, but it is not luxurious. It is an average but competent business hotel masquerading as a symbol of quality. There is no quality here beyond the machine that takes large sums of the guests money and gives it to shareholders. That machine is impressive indeed. The facade is nice enough. I stayed in an executive suite for two nights spending about $750 per night. I was in the mood to experience luxury, I did not. The lobby, restaurant and rooms looked pretty enough. Simple and vaguely prairie in design. When you look deeper you realize that the furniture is cheap and flimsy. A friend described it as the nice stuff at Ikea. The staff were very pleasant and hard working, but did not understand how to deliver truly exceptional service. I'm sure they are very efficient for their masters, but there was little attention to detail. There was a minor problem.with every request I made. My requests were fulfilled, mostly, but the experience of having someone be considerate of your experience was elusive. If you are looking for a special experience you will not find it here. Instead you'll find hard working people prevented from delivering that special experience by the system they work within. I hate to post this as I am a fan of the larger Hyatt brand, but the wiz kid who thought up the Park Hyatt brand created a disappointing imposter.
It was a very modern, upscale hotel with a GREAT location and very friendly staff... I reccomend the restaurant in the first floor called Blue Duck Tavern. Nice ammernities and we had a baby with us and it was a nice feature to have the hotel have a crib ready to go!
It's been a while since I've stayed at such a great hotel. My room was on the smaller side but quite comfortable for me being solo. Decor was understated luxury mixed with comfort. My bed was very comfortable. I particularly enjoyed the flexible/angled flat screen TV, lighting and AC control. I ordered late night room service upon arrival. My meal was delicious. The fact that it was after midnight had no impact on taste or preparation. There was no noise from the hall. (How nice not to jump in surprise when another door slams.) Breakfast was delicious in the restaurant where the open kitchen is proudly on display. The fitness center had a great selection of equipment and seemed well maintained. I can't say enough about what a great Hyatt this is.
