        • Older travelers
          8.2

          great location, friendly staff, breakfasts were well done and food choices good

          The beds need to be upgraded and the bathrooms renovated. A separate vanity would really help.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          Ideal situation for seeing the sights. The rooms were very roomy and clean and comfortable.

        • Family with children
          7.8

          Friendly staff, centrally located, very nice and spacious rooms, breakfast included formula.

        • Family with children
          7.0

          It was not far from the Metro and the beds were comfortable.

          Unfortunately the Hotel Air Conditioning was broken the first night and it was in the high 80's. The bath room was a bit run down and a little musty.

        • Family with children
          7.4

          Cleanliness of the room and great location for the DC non-business visitors to see the MALL area

          Parking fee is very high; almost $40 per night after taxes.

        • Family with children
          7.8

          Very comfortable hotel in a good location for exploring Washington dc

          Not to sure if fault lies with hotel, but they did not receive our reservation, there was no record of us booking.

        • Couple
          10.0

          It was very nice & cozy & the staff were most friendly! The staff allowed us early check in & upon check in we realized our room did not have a couch w/pull out bed as promised in the pics.. Later on when one of these rooms became available they allowed us to change rooms at no extra charge which was closer to the elevators! We would recommend staying here anytime to anyone!

          Nothing to complain about, but however, maybe adding 'free' wi-fi as well as a continental breakfast would be a plus!

        • Family with children
          10.0

          I like the fact that the Melrose Hotel is located in downtown D.c . Not far from the White House, the World Bank anf the imf. The rooms are very comfortable and clean.

          the comfort and privacy were great. the location was also excellent as it was close to everything.

          THe Hotel was ideally located for a visit with my daughter to see my son at GW Univ for the weekend. We had an excellent online rate and Bilal at the front desk upgraded us to the Presidential Suite!!! Needless to say - it was one of the best trips we have ever had. The room was an excess of space and luxury!!! We invited my son and his girlfriend over and ordered an excellent dinner from room service and felt like royalty. THe hotel is beautiful, clean and every member of the staff were smiling, charming, courteous and appreciative.5 min walk to GW, metro, Georgetown. My family will definitely stay at the Melrose again.

          That we can't live there permanently!!!!!

          9.2

          The location of the hotel is very convenient, the stuff friendly and we really enjoyed our stay.

          The room and especially bathroom is older furnished, the hotel would deserve some renovations.

        • Single
          9.6

          Location was excellent. Very close to most interesting sights of Washington.

          There was nothing to dislike about by stay there.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          Really comfortable bed!

          Plumbing is old fashioned and could not get hot water in wash basin.

          Proxcimity to sight seeing bus, and Georgetown
