Air conditioning was not working. Called front desk around 5 PM, said they would send someone up immediately. Nobody came. Called at 10 PM, said someone would be there immediately. Nobody came. Called at 11:30 PM, said the "engineer" would not be coming after all and said he had left for the night. Got hot, so we were forced to open the window. Also, earlier in the evening there was a fire in the restaurant and all alarms went off. Only redeeming aspect of the stay was at breakfast, with excellent service from Sofiane, the restaurant manager.

We stayed at the Melrose Georgetown for 3 nights and had a wonderful time! The location is great, and the beds are extremely comfortable. We especially enjoyed the breakfast served at the hotel restaurant. Sofiane went out of his way to make our experience memorable serving us with his special french charm! The avocado toast is to die for!

The Melrose Georgetown is a very deceiving hotel. The lobby looks well maintained as you enter. The problems begin when you enter your room. Lack of maintenance, uncomfortable furniture, poor bathroom amenities, and overall poor cleanliness are obvious. My wife and I were in Washington DC to visit friends and family and stayed at the Melrose. We will never stay at this hotel again. The toilet in our room did not work properly, the towel hook fell off the wall, our bed linens and duvet cover were soiled, the chairs were very uncomfortable, and, for some unexplained reason, the tv in our room did not have access to the same channels as other TVs in other rooms! The only reason we gave this hotel a second star was their staff members. Many of them were courteous, professional, and very helpful. Even though the hotel breakfast restaurant was severely overpriced, the staff, particularly Sofiane, were very pleasant and professional. Sofiane is a professional who works hard to satisfy his breakfast customers.

Dear 764stephenm, Thank you for your candid review. It is always disconcerting to hear of such an experience when lodging with us as it does not reflect that of the majority of our traveling community’s feedback. It is disappointing to hear that you categorize the Melrose as a very deceiving hotel and it did not live to your expectations. For an institution that had existed for decades and served everyone from working professionals, college parents, students, tourists and heads of state; I understand your stay did not meet your expectation. As I do with many of my conversations with guests, I encourage guests to reach out and speak to management when a stay is not meeting their expectation. During your stay, we did not hear of any concerns and it is disappointing that, if and when, these opportunities arose, we were not given the opportunity to address them. Upon further investigation, none of the concerns above were noted by our staff, engineering or housekeeping departments, which further adds to the perplexity of your stay. Regardless, I am glad you found Sofiane to your utmost satisfaction. He is an example of why our institution is truly remarkable. Our breakfast offerings, which are fresh to order, plentiful in serving and efficient in timing, are within line or even beat that of breakfast offerings in Georgetown. It is hard to find such heart filling breakfasts in our neck of the woods at the price point; I am disappointed you did not find that to be the case for your stay. Once again, thank you for your review and I encourage you to address any stay issues, whether staying with us or anywhere else, right away so that issues can attended to and addressed. We wish you safe travels. Best, Abdulla Almutairi Director of Operations
