Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Georgetown Hotel & Suites Washington DC
Large rooms, responsive staff
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?
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 !
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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.
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!
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.

... which we're drinking now. A nice old hobo told Terry and I that we looked like a nice couple, which made our day. He wasn't even a beggar.
The downtown area of Washington is clean and open, with lots of security, including helicopters, and very well dressed public servants and office workers. It contrasts greatly with the outer suburbs, and a I'm glad we had the chance to see the whole city.
... pretty town set back from the river, which was where I partook of lunch. I could also tell I was nearing the famous monuments because lots of big, black helicopters were flying low over the river from the direction of the White House etc. However, they were not my destination today but by crossing Arlington Memorial Bridge I would get to where I wanted to go - Arlington Cemetery. This is the biggest cemetery I have ever been too and it's hard to ...
What a fun day we had today! We got up early (again) and off we went to DC. Our agenda today included the National Archives. I was really the only one in the family interested in seeing the original documents, but I think everyone was glad we went. Zay was standing there looking at the Declaration of Independence and asked, "Mom, why are the words faded so much?" I silently chuckled and said, "Because it's over 200 years old." Looking at ...

I spent 3 days in DC for union work and extended my stay for a personal visit on my days off. I was able to visit with family and see everything DC has to offer. Peter was able to join me, after our work was done. The city is beautiful, clean and a site to see. Surprisingly enough, all of the amazing museums are free! I'm still in shock ...
