      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.

      An Honest Talk About Meetup

      ... did. The truth is I'm not sure how I would function without meetup, as if it has become a crutch. Healthy or not, I know somehow I will have to exit out of it. I have mentioned before that my last trip with meetup would be a second trip to Nepal, which is the Everest Base Camp trek. I pushed the date for that trip a few times now but 2014 appears to be the year I'm doing it. What follows is whether I will go by what I've told myself years ...

      Incidently, the last Confederate force to surrender was in November 1865 at Liverpool, England when a Confederate warship finally docked after harassing unions ships in the Arctic region!!!

      Longest Flight Ever

      ... my window shade and see some amazing night views and sun rises. Unfortunately, I wasn't next to a window this trip, so had 14 hours of short bursts of sleep, achy knees (cause literally, there's no room to stretch your legs) and a full bladder (cause I couldn't bring myself to wake my soundly sleeping husband so that I could get up to use the loo).

      I was never so happy to be served an airplane breakfast as I was at hour 13 on my longest flight ever.

Here’s some information about the best museum presentation of a cultural group that I’ve ever experienced: http://nmai.si.edu/home/
