TravelPod Member ReviewsSt. Gregory Hotel & Suites Washington DC
Really helpful staff, great with directions....got there way before check in time and needed a different room due to there being 3 of us instead of the 2 that I had originally planned and they were great. This is just a few blocks from the White House, a decent walk to The Mall, would probably catch a bus next time.

Historical Traveler Reviews St. Gregory Hotel & Suites Washington DC
My family stayed at this hotel for 8 nights. Overall, we were pleased with our choice, but we did experience several problems. The suites are for longer stays and are to enable you to cook in your room. But the kitchen did not have any dishsoap, napkins, knives, or hotmits. We had to buy kitchen equipment with our food when we went to the grocery store. They didn't even provide enough silverware and dishes.
The walls were either incredibly thin or our neighbors were even more rude than we realized. We had to complain numerous times about our neighbors, but security did take care of the problem each time we called.
The price was certainly reasonable, but we got exactly what we paid for, nothing more.
Excellent rooms, friendly staff and a perfect location!
This was a great experience and an awsome surprise. A beautiful (and very reasonable priced) room in a perfectly located hotel and such a friendly staff! I wish we´s stayed longer!
Had a great 4th at St. Gregory
My boyfriend and I stayed here for the weekend of the 4th. This was our 1st trip to D.C so I read some reviews about the hotel before I booked it. The room was large with 2 TV's and a great king size bed. The amenities were just as advertised. The bathroom was very clean as was the rest of the room. I had great housekeeping service for the 3 days we stayed, and the doorman was helpful in hailing a cab as soon as we walked into the lobby. The location was great, near good restaurants, fast food & shops. Best of all it was so close to the metro which was just a short walk. I felt safe in this neighborhood and in the hotel. I would stay here again if I came back.
I would stay there again.
We stayed there 4/25 to 4/28 2004. The service was excellent. The room was a suite, including full kitchen. I liked the restaurant too. Great towels and sheets. The only complaint was our room was next to the gym. One morning we woke to the pounding sound of the treadmill.
Nice Boutique Hotel
I stayed here for 3 weeks. It is very nice. My husbands coworker was near by at the Embassy Suites on 22nd. Our room was much nicer (marble floors, nice furniture). Embassy Suites had cultured (fake) marble. Both rooms seemed the same size. Also, St. Greg's has security such as a key swipe on the elevator each time you go up to your room and Embassy Suites doesn't. They are both equal distance to the metro. Embassy S has a free breakfast and St. Greg's does not. If you need privacy St. Greg's will be the place but if you have kids and need a more family hotel with pool and free breakfast Embassy Suites is your place. I enjoyed the bellmen always there to open the door for you. Very pretty hotel.
They wrecked my car and have refused to pay fir tge damages
Nice from the outside...however horrible service. When we requested more towels they brought us a spoon...which had been a request from the previous day which was never delivered. Walls were paper thin...not to mention they wrecked my car in the garage and have refused to pay for the damages...
Great room, excellent staff
I stayed at the St. Gregory on Sept. 27, 2003. Upon arrival, I found the staff to be friendly, helpful and multi-lingual. They offered me free breakfast and parking if I was willing to accept a smaller room (as opposed to the king-size bed I'd requested.) I did accept, and still found the room to be quite spacious. It also contained bottled water, wine, and fruit. The hotel was very clean and in an excellent location, within walking distance to shopping, restaurants, nightclubs, etc. And for the discounted rate of US $79, it was a great bargain!
Sweetheart special for corner room
Stayed 8-10 Aug 03. Arrived late (10PM) and found valet parking full so parked on street opposite for first night. Sweetheart special through the hotel. ($149 first night, $1 second night) is what attracted us.
Stayed on 7th floor (nonsmoking suite). Full size dishwater, stove, refrigerator, microwave. For corner view, ask for Room 700. Daily Washington Post (except Sundays). 3-4 blocks from Metro (Duport Circle or Farragut North - Red Line). From Red Line you can go direct to Mazzie Gallarie and Union Station. Downstairs brunch ($16) only on Sundays (did not try). Ice machine on 2d floor. for the price, four-star. Walking distance to Connecticut Av for shopping.
Great, but not 5-star
-went to DC with the family for the 4th of July weekend. Our room was very nice and spatious. The bed was super comfortable with pillows to match. There was a sleeper sofa in the room comfy enough for a kid.
At night we were awakened twice by very disturnbing sirens that made us want to run for our lives. The A/C in the room liked to attract attention to itself as it went on and off.
The bathroom was nice and spatious. The tub was tiny and the water pressure was disappointing: the showerhead "cried" on you.
Everything you want to see is walking distance or an $8 cab ride away.
The staff was generally nice, though they could be a little better at listening to you the first time you tell them something. They could also say that, "they'll be right with you" if your obviously waiting for something instead of just walking by.
I was delighted with the room that I received at a deep discount at this classy hotel. I wonder if they took one look at me traveling with my son and chose to give us a suite complete with stove and refridgerator? Perhaps all rooms are suites. The fact that the decor was not the usual non-descript hotel fare made a much bigger impression that I would have imagined. My only complaints are that the water pressure was weak for morning showers and that the $20 charge for valet parking seemed a bit steep considering the fact that a garage next door was already offering their evening rate of $5.

While walking around the block of the White House we came across a massive protest going on. There were hundreds of people marching along yelling and waving banners and signs around. They went around to the back of the white house and set up shop for some time. I then split off from the group as they were going to hit up the museums which I'd ...

I always thought the 4 th of July fireworks in DC would be the best around. I mean doesn't that make sense ?
I must say I was not impressed and felt like I get the same show here at home on a non holiday.
Now much can be said for not being in DC and not on the national mall lawn. The jury is still out and I'll have to plan another trip there and be front and center next time for a real ...
From Louisville to DC is about 9 and a half hours of straight driving. Sam decided to take control and he drove the entire way all by himself (he did the same thing on our second longest trip from St. Louis to Oklahoma). That night we weren't actually in DC cause we stayed at a friends house in College Park by the University of Maryland. Sam, Marie, and I all grew up playing little league together and she invited us to stay with her. She ...
