"Excellent business hotel, good service"
The Ritz Carlton is comfortable, and the rooms are well-appointed. It has good wifi, plenty of outlets and nicely appointed bathrooms. The concierge is also very good at helping with transportation. The breakfast was not very good, but the service was friendly and well-meaning. I will definitely stay there again.
"Ritz-Carlton at its Best"
People make the difference. This if often said but in respect of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Washington DC this saying is entirely true. I spent a week in late September together with my wife at the hotel for a conference and coming back to the hotel was always like coming home in the best sense. Everything was well prepared for making our stay unforgettable. On top of professional service orientation was the entire Club Lounge team which really did a superb job over the whole week. I would like to mention them since they all were so warm-hearted and friendly all the time and read from our lips what we might be looking for, even before we were really aware of what it was. Thank you all so much Zelekash, Curtis, Hamid, John and, in particular, Beri, Beneliza and Serait. Beri, Beneliza and Serait, you deserve our special gratefulness for your uncompared spirit of positive thinking, humour and your exceptional understanding of how to make your guests' stay at the hotel most enjoyable and comfortable. We left as friends and look forward to coming back soon or seeing you all anywhere else in the world again. With thanks for an wonderful stay. All the best to Ritz-Carlton Washington DC and the Club Lounge team.
"Not up to par with other Ritz-Carltons and other high end hotels in DC"
I was really looking forward to stay at this hotel but its just not up to par with the other Ritz-Carltons. When you stay at a Ritz Carlton people expect perfection for the money that they pay. The positives are that the hotel is just renovated and that the people at the front desk are for the most part quite friendly. A hotel just needs so much more than a friendly front desk. When you walk in the hotel half of the time the doorman doesn't open the door but you have to do it yourself. Another thing is that the bottles of water at the entrance are half the time empty and not refiled. The front desk was very happy to tell me that i got a newly renovated room but they forget to tell me that my room smelled like paint. Because the door is newly painted i also have to use my shoulder to open up the door because it was so hard to open. Overall the room is ok, its for my taste quite basic furnished and small but its ok. For sure not worth 700 usd a night. There is a bar downstairs where I went 2 times around noon. The bar is quite a joke, there is nobody standing behind the bar around noon even tough the bar is opened and i had to go 2 times directly to the kitchen to ask for a drink and once for a coffee. The bar tender just walks out of the back every 15 minutes to see if he can serve somebody instead of standing there the whole time and wait till your clients ask something. Later that day i returned to the bar and now they were quite overstaffed. The people working at the bar were just chatting the whole time with each other about there next trip to mexico etc instead of being quiet and let the people that were sitting there relax. Even the chef came out a few times to be there for a few minutes and make jokes with the other staff. If you want to chat be professional and do it in the kitchen but not in front of clients. One good thing in the afternoon was that i didn't have to go to the kitchen anymore to ask for my check. Another problem I encountered is that the minibar doesn't get refilled. I asked the cleaning lady if she could refill it and she said she would send somebody later in the day which I declined and said i wanted to have it done right away. The lady that refilled it apologized and said they are understaffed and they only have one person for 300 rooms to refill the minibar. Last but not least a cleaning lady came into my room while i had the privacy sign out. She didn't even nocked at the door. Overall, in this price range I've stayed at much better places in dc. I would recommend anybody the jefferson, the hay adams or the rosewood over this hotel. This hotel is far away of what a ritz carlton should be. I was 2 weeks ago at the ritz in Philadelphia and it was much much better.
"Updated property with excellent service"
It has been many years since I have stayed at this Ritz-Carlton, I usually stay at the property in Georgetown because of the proximity to shopping. I selected the DC Ritz-Carlton because my son is currently attending GW University and this property is only a couple blocks away. It's obvious as soon as you enter that the property has a more updated crisp ambiance in the common areas. I had reserved a one bedroom suite and when we arrived at 5:30pm our room was still not ready, I was not very happy about this. The front desk person assured me our room would be ready soon and treated us to a round of cocktails to hold us over. Once we were able to enter our room it was apparent that it also had been updated. The design and decor expertly done to create and atmosphere of comfort and understated modern elegance. We were also granted access to the club floor which sometimes is not that great of an upgrade. The club floor at this property was very comfortable with exceptional staff that delivered amazing service and met and exceeded our expectations. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the Foggy Bottom area of D.C.
This was maybe the best hotel we have ever visited. The facility is beautiful and the staff,literally, could not do enough for us. If you can, spring for the upgraded club floor. The food is way beyond what others offer in those types of services and the wine selections were top of the line.
