Woke up today to hear that the DC office of OMM would be closed, so we were worried about our flight. But we were on-time departing SFO and arriving IAD. The pilot assured us that we were one of the few flights to make it in to Dulles today. There was, unfortunately, a long taxi queue, but it soon start moving well, as they doubled-up passengers. I …

Historical Traveler Reviews Park Hyatt Washington Washington DC
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.
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.
