With the White House less than a mile down the road, it’s easy to feel like a VIP at these elegant Georgetown digs. The decor hits all the right notes for an urban stay: a warm and welcoming lounge featuring a fireplace, a library nook and chic gentleman’s club–style furniture (a tufted black leather sofa here, a high-back black and white chair there). The guestrooms offer plenty of living space and luxe surfaces (the bathrooms have black granite countertops) and custom artworks that pay homage to the capital’s history (think canvas dollar-bill portraits of George Washington painted by Gilbert Stuart, and U.S. Constitution wallpaper). After a day out exploring the city, head to the Jardenea restaurant for dinner, which checks all the of-the-moment culinary trends, particularly the farm-to-table ethos, which shows up in dishes that list local suppliers and highly seasonal ingredients. Expect to take a culinary tour of the Mid-Atlantic through dishes like Chesapeake Bay crab bisque, Maryland crab cakes and Barren Island oysters. Afterward you can work off all the calories in the hotel’s generously equipped fitness center.
In the Area
Take a walking tour of the capital, starting at the National Mall, with its 1,000 acres of green space and wealth of world famous monuments, such as the Lincoln Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and the Capitol Reflecting Pool. See the sights from the water by renting a paddleboat from which you can admire the Japanese cherry trees, especially when they’re in blossom in spring, one of the most popular times to visit DC. On weekends stroll around the Eastern Market, in the historic Capitol Hill neighborhood, where you can browse local produce, handmade arts and crafts and other treasures before jostling for a spot at popular diner Market Lunch, which dishes up treats such as blueberry buckwheat pancakes and soft shell crab.
How to Get There
Great location, sublime service at the reception and bar. very chic and modern decor. The room upgrade was a nice welcome although the room needed some dusting. Very good food in the restaurant and all in all a great experience.
Enjoyed my stay at the Melrose. Everything from the well appointed rooms, location of the hotel, to the first-class service of the front-desk and staff, made my stay enjoyable. I will definitely return to this hotel.
Outstanding hotel with outstanding staff. We stayed here for 2 nights and we're so very much inlove with the place. Restaurant servers are great and front desks work very professionally. Special kudos to Maggy who helped us with all our needs- thanks for your warm welcome and awesome smile.
