Spring Break in DC

Reviewed Mar 20, 2012

The location is great - easy walk to the mall and about a block and a half from a metro station.

Reserved a two queen bed plus sofa bed suite for 3 adults and 2 children some months ago. Requested additional towels and pillows at time of reservation. When we arrived the front desk manager was calling to see if they even had any rooms to meet our reservation. When we finally got in our room, not only were there no extra towels but there were only three sets. The "fully equipped kitchen" has plates, bowls, flatware for three and one sad skillet - no other cooking equipment. More towels and plates were provided when we requested them.

Good with the bad

from

Everything in life is a trade-off. I was there four nights. The staff was very accommodating with a complex reservation and actually changed some things for my convenience. Good room rate. Location is convenient to Metro (not even a block if you walk in the right direction!), beautiful neighborhood (GWU). Grocery and pharmacy nearby. Hotel was very quiet. Refrigerator and stove were great conveniences. Cooked and ate in the room a lot. My room was well-cleaned each day.

Any good restaurants are quite a hike, as are all of the tourist sights, if walking. Rented a car on the weekend. Parking is non-existent in area. Either park illegally, troll for 20 minutes, or pay high off-site valet prices. VERY small lobby. No business center.

The hotel TV touted renovation with plush beds, but they hadn't made it to my room yet, apparently. Old worn furniture and bedding; linens were worn out. Room decor dated (gold, green, brown).

I picked it due to personal convenience and Hilton points. All in all, would stay again, but things could be better.

Awesome!

The bad: $20 parking+tax, no broadband internet, no breakfast (except Sat & Sun).

The good: huge suites, not the extra big room kind, but a bedroom and a living room with a pretty good sized kitchen (fridge, stove, dishwasher). Do-it-yourself laundry on premises. 2 Blocks from the blue line (which will take you anywhere--except Lincoln memorial, not metro there). A Safeway 2 blocks away (at the Watergate no less), make your own meals.

The wife & I, plus a newborn, loved this place. Stayed here 5 nights and didn't want to leave (doing a 7 week road trip). There's no lobby, but who needs one? And the pool is on the roof (not heated), but the rooms were awesome, would definitely stay again.

I'd stay here again

from

We stayed at the Doubletree Guest Suites from July 10-16, 2004. There were 4 adults in the room and we had plenty of space. There was a separate bedroom, spacious living room, kitchen, and bathroom. The beds were comfortable and the whole place was VERY clean! The entire staff (front desk, bellmen, housekeeping) was friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The Metro is only about a block and a half away and was very convenient. We were able to buy groceries at the Safeway in the Watergate complex which was only about a block away. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family that plan on visiting D.C. I will stay there again when I return to Washington.

Not for Business

from

Average hotel overall at best. Desite it's excellent location, we found the "suite" we were given to be smallish, especially with children. Bathroom was cramped with even one person, let alone a family. Despite recent renovations, mgt did not see fit to include any broadband access- hence with a couple of days of work ahead of me, I am relegated to dial-up internet and need to find a nearby Starbucks to have decent i-net access. (And after a frustrating hour of trying to remember how to "dial-up" I discovered the front desk had failed to turn on my phone service. If you have any need for business, find another hotel.

Nice Size Suite/Small Pool

from

We stayed at the Doubletree for 4 nights in June. Nice size suite. Our room could have been a little cleaner (outside of fridge/handle area looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a long time and bathroom could have been better). The pool (very small) is only open until 8pm and after being out all day seeing the sites it would have been nice to take the kids to the pool. Thought the pool should stay open until at least 10pm. Website says it's 1/2 block from Metro but more like 1-1/2 blocks. Hotel is located in a nice residential neighborhood.

Great Hotel

from

Our family of four stayed here for 6 nights at the beginning of June. The room was huge. We had a bedroom with two queen beds, a living room with sofa bed and table for four, and a kitchen with full size refrigerator, stove and dishwasher. We bought groceries across the street in the Watergate complex and ate all breakfasts and three suppers in the room. Very quiet, hardly saw or heard any other guests. There is no lobby to speak of, basically just a front desk, but we never spend any time in hotel lobbies anyway. Very small pool on the roof. Only 5 minutes to the Foggy Bottom metro which is great after a long day of playing tourist. The staff could not have been friendlier. Would definitely stay here again.

Great from start to finish!

from

When we arrived, we were greeted by a fantastic bellman named Melvin.

He smiled and assisted us with our luggage and checking in. The room was spacious and very clean. We went out that evening and the desk provided us with friendly service with restaurant recommendations and places to go. Overall our experience was made better by the comfort of being in a nice residential area of the city as well as by the close proximity to so many interesting things! I will return year after year to the Doubletree Suites in DC! R. Bogart

Fine hotel in a good location

from

No real complaints with this hotel. But it didn't wow me either. Great location! Only 1.5 blocks from the nearest Metrorail station. Close to Lincoln Center. Suite was very spacious. But even my 10th floor room didn't have much of a view. No high speed internet access as of Jan.

2004. Agree with other reviewers that the staff was kind and courteous.

Didn't check out the pool. No on-site restaurant. Probably only an issue at breakfast. They do have room service.

Clean, friendly and great place to stay

from

We had booked a hotel at Days Inn Cont. Ave., it was horrible we checked out and finished our vacation at the doubletree, the staff was very friendly, rooms were excellent very clean and large rooms. And decorated very nice. Very reasonably priced at 129.00 room for a large suite with a full kitchen and livingroom, with two queen beds. Would definately stay there again. We traveled around the east coast for a family vacation and this hotel was our last place to stay best hotel out of the five we stayed and a perfect way to end our family trip. The bellman Daniel was very nice and helpful, friendly and a great guy,give this man a raise!!. We were within walking distance to a lot of attractions after taking the subway. We walked to everything for three days.

Worth a second visit!

from

Room sizes were large (even for suites). Staff friendly and location convenient. Family appreciated pool area and the cookies!

It was now late afternoon and so we headed to Chinatown for some lunch, we found a nice Japanese restaurant and I didn't like the look of anything so Ryan ordered some sushi and chicken teriyaki that came with miso soup. When the chicken came out it looked amazing so I pretty much ate half his meal!! ...

A wonderful display of fine art of native product reflecting traditional dress and costumes all done by the grandmother, mother and daughter. Such fine intricate work, Museumed out we begin to head for home. A slight wrong turn leads us to a dead end but a wonderful sunset beginning! Turn and head for home. A long walk!

... like. It's difficult to translate the names of the 15 concentration and death camps carved into the walls into the names of 6 million people, and the thing that stuck in my head all the rest of that day was a single tile from the Wall of Remembrance: "Why did they kill the children?" I've not written this last section as a travel blog but a way of trying to avoid thinking of the things I saw as impressive monuments and statistics, lest we forget the people.

... the men they hired was later traced back to the fund to re elect Nixon by the police. When the police asked to see the recording Nixon kept of all the conversations held in the White House Nixon refused. This raised many questions and the public was soon calling for Nixon to be impeached. This caused Nixon to resign his presidency on August 8th, 1974.
