      Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Georgetown Hotel & Suites Washington DC

      Large rooms, responsive staff

      from

      I stayed here at the end of January 2005. It is within a 10-minute walk of the George Washington University metro stop, and I felt safe walking at night in this neighborhood. It takes about 45 minutes from hotel to Capitol Hill buildings, with a change of metro lines en route. I appreciated that breakfast was included (with a microwave the possibilities were greater than the usual continental breakfast) and that there was an attendant to replenish items. There is also a shop on the first floor where one can purchase sundries and snacks, although there were apples and bananas at the guest check-in desk. The first room I was given had an unpleasant odor of stuffiness (perhaps someone had smoked in a non-smoking room) and the heat did not seem to be functioning properly. The front desk responded immediately to my request to be moved to another room. About half an hour later a staff person called to inquire whether everything was satisfactory. The rooms are LARGE, with in-room refrigerator, and the sleeping area separated from the living area by a room divider with a TV that could be swiveled to watch in either area. When I arrived home and tried to make a reservation for a stay about 4 weeks later, I realized that this hotel is deservedly popular as it was fully booked! For my subsequent trip I stayed at the Holiday Inn Central, which was fine, but this Best Western room was larger and less expensive. If you are a member of their Gold Crown frequent stay program, be sure to include this in your reservation or at least upon arrival. I would stay here again.

      Are we talking about the same hotel?

      from

      I read the previous reviews before I stayed at the BW New Hampshire Suites but it much worse! For the price ($89, booked directly with hotel) I didn't expect a 4-star place, but the conditions were dreary and old. Workers were there every day (I stayed 4 nights), so improvements are being made, but they left behind trails of mud and plaster dust that were never cleaned up and increased each day. Dirty linen, a vacuum and unemptied wastebaskets sat piled in the hall for 2 days.

      My room had new bathroom fixtures (nice quality and installed well), but the new wallpaper was hung badly, with wrinkles and sagging. The couch was so old (stained, worn, and lumpy cushions) that I laid out my coat if I sat down on it. Water pressure was poor and hot water was unreliable (made the 6 am shower a real waker-upper!). Dresser and nightstand were flimsy and an empty potato chip bag was in the top drawer.

      Common areas ranged from dirty (elevator mirrors and doors were smeared, hallways had gouges and smudges on the walls) to difficult (three steps up from driveway to doorway, three more steps up to reservation desk, no ramp for rolling bags).

      Good news - continental breakfast was well-stocked and fresh, with good variety. Employees were pretty helpful, but housekeeping standards were dreadful. I kept washing my hands, trying to get the feeling of "creeping crud" off of me. I'll pass on this hotel for any future visits to DC.

      Really good !

      from

      Great value for money..........very clean & big room, good breakfast, good location (safe,near to shops, etc). Highly recommend for a stay in a great city.

      Great Place

      from

      We stayed at this hotel during a sight seeing trip to DC. The staff was friendly and helpful and the hotel was conveniently located to the Metro. The rooms were clean and everything was in good working order. I would recommend this hotel.

      Clean, Convenient and Friendly

      from

      This was one of the best Bestwesterns we've ever stayed.

      It was one of the cleanest hotels.

      We were treated like family. The Associates were not only helpful but respectful and very friendly.

      The breakfast was great but the associate, running it, needed a helper. When I told the front desk they seem to listen and responded as if someone would hear about my suggestion.

      We are already planning a return trip and are looking forward to the blessing of such service.

      Enjoyable stay

      from

      Stayed here on the views of others on this site. Very happy with the recommendation staff very helpful and pleasant We thought the rooms were clean but a little dark. Free breakfast good & staff would provide all that was needed.

      Not Bad

      from

      We stayed over Memorial Day weekend for the dedication of the World War 2 Memorial. The front desk staff was very friendly. The room was very nice. Housekeeping was terrible. When asking for directions or recommendations for sites and restaurants the front desk was terrible. Would not stay there again.

      Okay for a night

      from

      It's okay for one night, but wouldn't want to stay longer. Our room wasn't really a suite, just a large room with a TV cabinet to divide it from the pull-out couch. Clean, nice bathroom, pleasant staff. But it would get old pretty fast for more than two people. Easy walk to Dupont Circle with lots of good restaurants nearby. Shop for specials, they're usually available. Reasonable (outside) parking across the street.

      Good Buy

      from

      After much searching we found a wonderful value at this Hotel. Spacious, clean, friendly staff, very adequate breakfast, 2 blks to the Metro and a great Asian restaurant down the block. We would definately chose this location again.

      Go for it!

      from

      We were tipped out of our pre-reserved DC hotel, which had overbooked, into the New Hampshire Suites - and were very happy to be there, especially as we saved some money. The management was welcoming, as was the staff. The room was huge and very comfortable (#200) and the complimentary breakfast excellent. The linen was changed daily without question and we felt totally at home there and would have no hesitation about returning on our next visit to DC.

We left the Art Museum and were headed to the Air and Space Museum when we were sidetracked to the Smithsonian Folklife Festival. Every year 2 nations are represented in The Mall with pavilions serving food, playing music ...

      After a very short taxi drive I arrived at the Holiday Inn Washington Capitol, checked in and went up to my room. Now, when I decided that I was going to Washington I tried on numerous occasions to book tickets to the stadium tour and a game; unfortunately, for some reason the website would not accept my card. On one instance I even phoned up but to no avail so when ...

      ... it was full and I had to go to one of the satellite viewing areas where they showed the talks on monitors. I know to go early for the rest of the talks.

      The talks were much like what I've seen on TED.com. The biggest difference is that the videos include very little of the talking between speakers. It turns out, there was quite a bit of that.

      When the talks were over I headed back to my hotel.
