Historical Traveler Reviews Park Hyatt Washington Washington DC
Great DC Hotel!
We just returned from a 4-day stay at DC's Park Hyatt. Not having been to any other DC hotels, I can't compare it to other 4 or 5 star hotels in the area; however, the service was excellent - from the 2X daily housekeeping service to the always friendly doormen/bellstaff to the complimentray Voss water & specialty candies left in the room. That said, the hotel itself isn't as plush as the Park Hyatt in Chicago. It's not that the hotel wasn't nice, the rooms just seemed a bit dated & neglected. We were there with our 2 young children, so we opted for a suite. Neither TV remotes worked very well - even with a change of batteries & the TV in the master bathroom was missing the "power" button. We were told by the bartender in the hotel's Melrose lounge that the hotel would be closing in the next few months to undergo a massive renovation. I think once that's been completed, the hotel will be a showpiece. We dined at the hotel's restaurant, Melrose. It was very nice although a bit pricey, but they were very accomodating to my mother-in-law who has dietary restrictions as well as our picky toddler.
The location of the hotel was fine. It's a short walk to the Metro station & a quick ride to the mall & other sites; however, the Metro seemed the fastest way to get around.
The hotel has a small but nice fitness center & a whirlpool & indoor swimming pool. The pool is mainly a lap-type pool as it's small & ranges from 3 to 5 feet in depth.
Again, I rate the service at the hotel as top-notch, but the hotel itself would fall right below that grade.
An excellent choice
This is a first class hotel within easy walking distance of Georgetown and a short cab ride to the White House and Washington Mall. The rooms are very comfortable. The restaurant is also excellent if a little on the pricey side. I just came back from a conference at the Park Hyatt, so I got an deal on the room rates, but the posted rates are high. Still, I think you get what you pay for in this case.
I stayed at the Park Hyatt for several nights recently and thoroughly enjoyed it and the staff. Had a malfunctioning tv and they sent a fellow up within minutes and he fixed it. The front desk staff was very helpful in arranging a reservation for dinner. It was A-1.
Upon arrival late last Friday night, Cedric tried to check us in, 3 persons; it took him what seemed like a longer than usual time since we were tired after driving from New York. The hotel's lobby is pleasant, but not particularly well decorated; once you reach the restaurant area or the elevators, all changes. It becomes coherent and much more attractive. Arriving at our room, we were pleasently surprised-it was spacious and also attractive, the furniture is not of quality, but it is nice. Also great beds, pillows and duvets. Great windows and a superb marble bathroom. We never got the ice and champagne glasses we called for on Friday night. On Saturday, champagne glasses were brought after a considerable wait. For the check out, Mr. Menz was most competent and friendly-I will definetely go back, but will like to check the Fairmont across the street that is very Frech and whose lobby is superbly decorated.
Absolute Dream Come True
We stayed here on our wedding night and had an amazing time. Upon check-in, staff was very helpful and courteous...even offered complimentary trolley tour tickets. We were upgraded to a suite, which was truly gorgeous. Fantastic marble bathrooms and very comfortable beds. Location is perfect and only a short walk to Georgetown. It was a fairy-tale weekend and definitely worth the stay. We would definitely go back again.
I returned to Washington DC for a weekend in October to attend my college alumni weekend. I bid on a 4 star hotel on priceline and got the Park Hyatt for $80 per night. The room was extremely comfortable and cozy and the service was excellent. The hotel is a short cab ride away form Adams Morgan, Dupont Circle, the Mall and Georgetown.
Enjoyed our stay at the Park Hyatt. An elegant hotel, beautiful lobby area with a helpful, efficient staff. Nicely appointed rooms and very comfortable beds. A short walk to the Foggy Bottom metro station. Would definitely stay here again.
Loved the Park Hyatt Washington
We stayed at the hotel over the Labor Day weekend and we were treated wonderfully. We had our 2 dogs with us and they were treated royally too! We travel often and this hotel was one of the best. The employees were friendly and attentive. The accomodations were excellent. As part of our AAA package, breakfast was included in the hotel restaurant which was delicious and relaxing. I highly recommend staying at this hotel if you're looking for upscale accomodations.
Past Its Prime
Park Hyatt is in need of some serious work. Staff are uninterested, making guests wait 10-15 minutes to check in with only 1-2 receptionists behind the counter. Multiple breakfast trays were still in the hallway at 7PM. Linen closests were open with dirty sheets hanging out....
Once in room, not much better. Furniture nicked, old TV, awful shower pressure, thin sheets....really just sub par for a Park Hyatt. Doors are even flimsy, which is important since most rooms are connecting.
Too bad - this place has a great rep, and it should be better.
Terrific Pet Friendly Staff
Finding a nice hotel that is accomodating to the owner of a large breed dog can be difficult. I found the staff at the Park Hyatt to be very welcoming to me and my Labrador Retriever. They were ready with treats on hand to show what an inviting place their hotel can be. I highly recommend a stay with the Park Hyatt.

... is a beautiful, open city with much greenery, but very few coffee shops. No buildings are allowed to be built taller than the Capitol building (so no more than 12/13 floors). We certainly had a wonderful day. On another occasion Paula and Simon bravely offered us the use of their Porsche 911 for the day, so we bit their hand off and drove off to take the Skyline Drive through the Shanandoah National Park. This follows the crest of the Blue ...

Our intention was to try to get to the Air & Space Museum and the Natural History Museum as well if we had time, which thankfully we did. It was a full on day, but wandering through the air and space, following the history of flight right up till now and the latest technologies being used in space was really interesting. There were flight simulators too, which David and I decided to give ...
In my last blog I mentioned that I was going to see Jayz and Beyonce and staying at a hotel, well bloody hell it was a hotel and so much more! When pulling up alongside mercedes and mustangs in a big blue taxi van, I figured I was in the wrong place, but the driver assured me I wasn't. So I stroll down the long hall way, sweating with my massive backpack on, walking past people in suits and what looked like prom dresses, to arrive at the front desk. They looked just about as surprised to ...
Please take this blog with a huge pinch a salt. Our opinion of Washington was probably sealed from the moment we got on the Greyhound with a horribly rude driver. In short we had a bit of a pants time, a pants time we could laugh at, but pants nonetheless. Given more time, having had better weather, or just with a better driver we might have loved it but it's fair to say we didn’t.
Getting on the bus at Philly was a chore, there were no signs to tell us where to go, ...
My good friend and travel buddy Maggie Owens and I have been planning this trip for over a year. When Washington politics and craziness (is that redundant?) threatened to spoil our itinerary, we came up with Plan B. We were determined not to let the shutdown ruin our fun, so we set off to discover state and privately-run sites that were not affected. Lots of happy accidents ...
