The Maldonado’s

Great location and amenities Morton’s is one of my favorites, and they are located in many nice hotels like this one Make sure you visit on the evening

Our tour had breakfast arrangements, missed the eggs on the last two mornings of the trip To their credit, staff was kind, attentive and accommodating Starbucks in the house too (for those Cafe lovers like us) Safe “business” area, and parking is just around the corner Modern feel with plenty to do around the hotel

It’s a good business hotel, quiet standard, could be any brand really Pros and cons below:PROS:Large spacious room with nice expansive views onto the main street, gets good light during the day Comfy bed

There’s a desk to work at if need be Nice staff at the hotel, very accommodating and caring Very clean, good observation of covid rules etc Food served during the event was good too, tasty, good temperature- I recommend the current kitchen staff can certainly cater for breakfast tooAreas to IMPROVE:No breakfast, no pool/spa; the air in the hotel was so dry most event delegates were complaining about difficulty to sleep at night, myself included – I strongly recommend to get lots and lots of green plants, maybe install some air humidifiers for the winter months The shower head was full of limescale – need to check those details and replace Maybe add a picture(s) in the room, some softer interior details – interior now looks so sterile, plain

We visited DC for leisure, and we felt that this hotel was the perfect balance of convenience, comfort, and value Driving in from out of town, it was easy to get to this hotel by car, and the Metro stop made it easy to get to all the big sights around the capital Our rooms were clean and nice, and the bed was comfortable

Yes, you have to pay for breakfast here, but there are tons of options nearby, including several in the lobby I was perfectly happy with Starbucks and Dunkin; my husband and his parents sought fancier eats in the morning The only bummer was that there’s no pool and hot tub But still I’d give the place a full five stars because we were truly satisfied with this hotel

This place is an unbelievably good deal The rooms are HUGE (be sure to ask for a tower room) It’s a bit of a drive from DC, but we plan on staying here any time we come back

This hotel offers an experience you typically don’t get unless you’re spending an additional $100-200 per night Be sure to walk to the town square in Rockville where you’ll find families with kids playing in the water park when the weather is warm Great hotel for families


The staff is very unfriendly we said hello and attempted to be friendly after making 8 hour trip with a baby But, They did not say hello or welcomed to the hotel

“keys, wifi, elevator to the left” is all they said we asked for a change to do laundry, and the staff refused There was no coffee in the morning, and 2 staff were talking to each other while guests were waiting for coffee Location and building are fine, but service is terrible

Mike Larrick

OK but quite expensive for the quality Rooms are clean and large, but not a lot to write home about No bath, only basic cable

They will charge you $20 for parking, which seems scammy They tell you they’ll validate parking but don’t mention they’ll charge you for it For a hotel on the outskirts of beltway suburbia, you’d think they would include that with the room I didn’t take a boat in Also they will send you spam emails and texts to sign up for their club

Great hotel, staff is very friendly and helpful Loved the gym and equipment in the room that encourages business travels to stick to their routine Room was clean and spacious food was good

Parking needs a little bit of work but not terrible Use the conference room space w/ coworkers and it was very accommodating Overall great experience as a business traveler Teresa was wonderful!

I booked a night at this hotel this weekend after my boyfriend stayed there for over 2 weeks It is a pet friendly environment and the gym is fully equipped with new machinery The rooms are very spacious with many outlets and comfy bed

There was only a mini fridge and no microwave The staff overall was friendly, however, there were 2 incidents that we had with the staff that was very disappointing My boyfriend stayed in that room for over 2 weeks and they only cleaned the room once We had asked for the staff to provide us new sheets, towels, and washcloths and remove the old bedding and trash in the room I informed them that my dog would be gone the entire day to be groomed so they may clean the room Unfortunately, they do not clean the rooms while you are staying there because of Covid We had to change our own sheets and take the trash out and after asking on 4 different occasions for them to bring us all that we asked for, we finally received everything We had also asked for a late check out, which they approved The next day we had gone downstairs to reactivate the room keys and the staff told us we could not do late checkout We only had 45 minutes to checkout or we would have been charged another night Overall, we had decent experience, although, I personally will not come back to this hotel

Sara Smith

We booked a room in your hotel as always in advance from April 23-25, we indicated in advance that we need 2 queen beds We received confirmation of the reservation We were calm that everything was fine

But when we got to the reception desk, it turned out that we were not expected There was surprise on the faces of the custom service, and they said that they had been waiting for us only since April 26 and there was no room with two queen size beds in the hotel But wasn’t it possible to warn us about this when they confirmed our reservation? And how could we confuse our dates for booking a room We showed in the phone that we have a reservation from April 23-25 Of course, the custom service did everything to save the situation, and found a free room for us, but our mood did not improve from this The very fact that one of the reception staff mixed up our booking dates, did not warn us in advance that we needed two queen-size beds, and even when we checked into our room, the bathroom was poorly cleaned, the bath was poorly cleaned, there were traces of other guests inside the toilet We have stayed at your hotel twice And the second time was the last We will no longer be staying at your hotel Your service has become substandard And the price for the room is greatly overstated

Two to three months ago, we requested 15 or so rooms for a weekend and were told to contact them at the time of the stay in order to ensure that the rooms were connected and in the same part of the hotel Only for us to be told day of that that would not be feasibleCheck-in was painful – we had to stay with our guests to help with the check-in process – and even then it took 1

5 hours for nearly every room to get checked in The staff seemed confused about who had/had not checked in and relied on a spreadsheet THAT WE CREATED in order to keep them organized For a “new/top class” hotel, their technology literacy could really use improvementTwo weeks later, we are dealing with incorrect charges on cards, higher than promised rates, confusion over guests’ names and their room charges, and staff who continue to pass us around and follow up with high-level details instead of taking the time to investigate what went wrong on their end We were considering this space for a wedding venue, but the utter frustration we have faced since has quickly ruled this place outThe hotel directs guests to a $10 / night overnight parking garage that takes forever to get out of The signage to get in and out of this hotel is unclear and there do not appear to be any plans to change it The hotel clearly relies on business travelers and knows itFinally, as of 6/16/22, we were offered the equivalent of one night free as compensation for our troubles We gave them 30 nights worth of business Will never come back nor recommend this place to anyone – wedding, regular stay, anything This has turned me off the Hyatt brand for personal use

Noel James

The hotel was nothing short of excellent The hospitality was amazing I stayed here for my birthday weekend and the front desk hostess, Catherine was amazing! She paid attention to every detail of my request and made sure that my needs were catered for

I had the King room with a view of the city And it was just gorgeous The breakfast at the hotel restaurant was equally up to par and scrumptious!It’s a gorgeous property that I would definitely revisit anytime I’m in Tysons

Tim O’Neill

The room was fine but it is a ‘pet friendly’ hotel which apparently means you can bring your dog to stay with you, leave it in the room and go out and party all night while it sits in the room alone howling Unbelievable! Good luck sleepingWho knows when the adjoining restaurant opens on a Sunday morning? Nearest place open at 7am for breakfast was Silver Diner a mile away

It was fantastic!

Super nice front desk staff! They were courteous, friendly, and very helpful The room was nice There were a couple of small things that need to be repaired

The location: the hotel is located in a business park environment So, the view is of roads or the parking lot There are shops about a half mile away They have an indoor pool and hot tub Breakfast is pretty basic fare There is a bar in the restaurant So, nothing fancy But, the staff is superb!

Jason Lee

In terms of hospitality and comfort, this stay at the Hilton Garden Inn Rockville-Gaithersburg hotel was by far one of the most best and memorable experiences Joyce and April both helped our two families check in quickly and easily allowing us to make the most of our short stay Not only that, they also took the time to get to know us and found out that it was our 4 year olds birthday and made it extra special by giving him a really memorable present

It’s these little things that make us keep coming back to Hilton and if you’re ever looking for a comfortable, friendly stay, look no further!

Courtenay Marshall

The hotel is clean and well maintained but a little tired and could use some upgrading It’s located in a convenient and nice neighborhood The restaurant staff was very friendly and helpful

The hotel still is not cleaning daily which is fine but I called 4 times and visited the front desk in person asking to get the in-room coffee replenished including waiting up late last night for someone that would be “right up” I’m typing this in need of coffee desperately I’m a Hilton Diamond member and besides a 25 cent bottle of water at checkin there has been no acknowledgment It’s just about impossible to get responses If you just need a room and don’t care about indifferent “service” then it’s fine to stay here Don’t forget to bring your own Kuerig coffee pods if you are staying more than one night Tried to check out on the app but that wasn’t working so went to the front desk and the girl at front desk was busy on a FaceTime call with her friend and couldn’t be bothered to talk and said put the key in the jar Indifferent “service” by the hotel staff from beginning to the end

My stay could’ve been better and had high expectations for the hotel First, I was very happy that they were able to accommodate my last-minute change to upgrade my room from a standard to the Luxury Corner King room, which we absolutely loved the room We also were very appreciative that we were able to check-in at 2:00 PM instead of 3:00 PM as we had just traveled from Virginia Beach, VA by Amtrak and it was our first time in DC (this was a surprise birthday weekend trip)

The woman that helped us check-in was very very nice and the check-in process was less than 15 minutes, she gave us 2 complimentary drink tickets to use at the bar which also made us really love the experience so far What was not a pleasant experience and was very upsetting and disappointing was the following: 1 We went to go get ice on our floor, but the ice machine was out of order We called down to the front desk to see if there were other ice machines and were told no, that they are on other floors We were then told that someone would bring ice to our door shortlynobody ever came nor did we ever get a call about the ice We tried to use our key to get to a different floor to use their ice machine but it was not working We were also on a time crunch/schedule to go see some museums/monuments (as some require timed-entry tickets) so we never did call back about the ice We returned hours later and finally, our key let us go up to a different floor to retrieve ice I don’t think guests should have to be going to different floors to get ice 2 There was no ice bag in the ice bucket, which is a health and sanitation issue, as putting the ice inside a bucket without a bag can make it dirty and you can get sick from this Other hotels that are not “5-star” rated always have ice bags, so this was very disappointing We ended up using the disposable shower cap to place the ice in the bag 3 One reason we picked this hotel was that there was a concierge service offered, which we were going to use to get information about the monuments, museums, and restaurants as this was our first time in DC and only there for a week We walked down to the front desk and spoke to the same woman that helped us check-in to inquire about how to get tickets to the United States Holocaust Museum (tickets were almost impossible to get/booked in advance) and we thought maybe the hotel had a select number reserved She told us that the concierge service is unavailable/suspended and that she would talk to her manager and call us to let us know what they could do She took my last name and our room number and we went up to our roomwe never did receive a phone call, and at that point, it was already too late and we headed to bed 4 Our bed was completely missing a fitted sheet on the bed and we essentially slept on top of the bare mattress The bed only had the top sheet and the comforter, and we can see the mattress pad that was on top of the actual mattress (which also was very very dirty), and that upset us a lot as we just have traveled all day, had things to do once we got check-in, and then we’re about to lay down for bed 5 The bathroom was amazing, the separate tub and shower are what sold us to getting the Luxury Corner King room, but, there was an issue with our shower The walk-in shower was missing the rubber sealant on the bottom of the door, so whenever you took a shower, the water got all over the floor and basically flooded the bathroom 6 We ordered in-room dining breakfast both days honestly, it was not good Eggs were overcooked, protein was undercooked/raw, and some of the items were completely soggy Overall, the stay was not great/OK I really expected a better experience, as I was highly recommended this hotel by others Our stay failed to live up to the “5-star” rating and the “one-of-a-kind-stay” from their website It’s upsetting how much we paid for a room yet we did not receive the experience and service that should have come with it

Kimberly Giang

Super friendly staff and great location Room was very clean and tidy Valet staff was fast and very helpful

Love that it was pet friendly My only negative comment is that the shower and sink would do this weird random thing where it would shut off mid use for about 20seconds Fortunately the water would come back on nice and hot again but it was strange My overall experience was still 5 stars and I would definitely stay here again


Definitely it is not a 5 star hotel as some mention I would give 4 starWhat I didn’t like:No concierge or help for visitors

Even a cheap city map they didn’t have, had to go to another hotel and beg for one Restaurant reservations they Google, they are not able to make a call so it is faster to do it ourselvesCompulsory 30usd tax including telephone calls, higher speed internet that most of times doesn’t work, 2 X 0,50 cents water bottles, coffee and tea at the lobby, package handling (it was useful for me, but any other hotel do that for free, except Loews or Hilton), and other things most guests don’t useNo views (luxury and higher have views to a building other side of the street, superior room has a view to a wall and back of another very close building, standard room probably hasn’t a window),Bathroom toiletries are different brands each so shower will make you smell like a fruit salad,They probably don’t use a softener when washing towels (or softener is not working),All glasses are the cheapest roadside hotel plastic or paper cups Maybe they are still very worried about covid but not about convenience or confort If using plastic glasses is obligatory they could use nice cups as this is supposed to be an elegant hotel, but the cup is the same we find in 1 or 2 star hotels, or hospitalsMinibar doesn’t cool down Probably it only freezes when we request it to be filled but I had some beverages I wanted to cool for my city walk and couldn’t do thatWhen I flushed toilet during the night I believe I woke up the entire floor It makes an incredible noise for some couple of secondsWhat I liked:Reception staff is very friendly,Location is very nice, not far from anywhere and next door to the White House and less than 20 minutes to the museumsBlackout curtains in the room really workShower is good, pillows and bed are comfortable, air conditioning worksCleanliness and cleaning service Very goodRoom size is perfectValet staff is friendly and prompt (don’t forget it costs 60usd per day)

You will hear the food and beverage director before you see him During our trip, he raised his voice multiple times quite angrily – it was quite concerning to hear him speak to guest service staff in such a way and that he was comfortable enough to do it in front of guests, tooOtherwise, my husband and I had an absolutely lovely stay

Our room was amazing and there were lots of friendly faces I also especially enjoyed the pillows, and I wish I had thought to ask what type they were as they were super comfy

Hampus Engstroem

Don’t forget to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking a hotel This website will compare thousands of booking web sites and usually will have prices a lot cheaper compared to others! Thank me later! This hotel is one of the highest rated in this area

I have been staying here for a long time If you decide to stay here you for sure won’t regret itWe went to StRegis afternoon tea to celebrate the cherry blossom season and it didn’t disappoint The place is nice and their tea selection is amazing It’s a set menu I personally enjoyed the savory part more While the sweets were well represented and looked amazing, nothing tasted special but the sconesI highly recommend it I just wished that I have the choice of picking what I’d like instead of having little of everything They offered a to-go box for the rest of the sweets though

Sade Smith-Edwards

The hotel is amazing and me and my husband went here for the afternoon tea this passed Friday It was our 5 year anniversary and we were thinking of staying the night after a fun day of hanging out in the city Our opinion had changed when the person servicing us essentially never addressed me, even when I was the one asking questions

When my husband asked to have champagne, only HE got to taste it and I was blatantly ignored She had her back to me as often as possible That is until I was the one paying the check I have NEVER, and I do mean never, been treated that way in any service capacity This completely deterred me from book a night thereI’m sure the staff and hotel is wonderful but this was not a good look And this was our 5 year anniversary Probably will think twice before considering going here for a stay

Due to a project, which got extended over and over again, i spent quite a few months in total here this year Reception, Bar, Security, Housekeeping staff etc were all so amazing

Felt very welcomed here and the overall competence as well as the motivation of the staff to make your stay special was totally outstandingReally gonna miss most of them and hope to see them again!Absolutely recommended from my sideSafe travels everyone!🙏🏼

Rion McKeithen

I visited this location for business travel and was exceptionally pleased with my experience Upon arrival, I received a small welcome gift [as a member of the rewards program], and had a beautiful lake facing room I was pleased that it was quiet and all service requests were tended to with care

During my stay I enjoyed the fitness facility, restaurant, and adjacent attractions at Rio It was very nice to have the option to go to the movie theatre or walk around the lake right next to the front doorEven though there were many highlights of this trip, the best part was undoubtedly the service provided by Carla [front desk] She went above and beyond in helping me with all of my questions and become acquainted with the area I even had a few requests that were not part of the regular offerings and she helped craft and deliver innovative solutions It was a refreshing relief to receive such excellent customer service that would be more commonly associated with the St RegisOverall I strongly recommend this hotel for any business travelers and also believe it would be suitable for families as it quite safe and orderly There are also adjacent attractions for children including a carousel, large arcade and multiple high quality family restaurants

Sue Bai

My daughter and I stayed here last week during the independence day weekend The hotel was quiet, clean and the staff are very friendly and welcoming The location was ideal: we walked over to AMC for a movie-night right across the hotel! The breakfast food was so well prepared I left a note to the food service manager about how much we appreciated the wonderfully prepared food, even though it was a slow weekend with very few customers at the hotel

I am impressed by the quality of the service and highly recommend this hotel!

Hampus Engstroem

Decent hotel The lobby is really flashy, unfortunately the rooms are quite dated, and mine had a weird smell The shower had some mildew on the floor, and of course the room had an old carpet on the floor as most hotels do

At least the rooms were bigThe on site restaurant had a decent selection of food and beverages, I had the salmon for dinner and it was pretty good I also had breakfast in the restaurant and they did not have the buffet set up, I ordered parfait with granola and fruit and it was good! Main gripe was that they charged for coffee and juice, and quite a lot, so the whole ticket got quite expensive for a really simple breakfast The executive lounge was closed too which was a bit if a bummerOverall it was a decent stay, definitely stayed in worse hotels

Matt Winn

Our stay at the hotel was extremely disappointing On the first night, there was continuous noise until 1am Part of that noise was the hotel staff loudly opening and closing doors up and down our hallway and running a vacuum cleaner which they also carelessly slammed into the door/wall outside our room

When we asked the staff member with vacuum to stop, he refused Part of the noise was rowdy activity in the hallway, which the staff did nothing about despite multiple requests Even later in the week, young people were running around and yelling in the hallways because there is no atmosphere of civility or control by the staff It was very disruptiveOur stay was also disappointing because basic amenities were broken, unavailable, or held at cost For example, the convenient location next to the metro was spoiled because upon return, the door back into the hotel was locked and the card key access was not operational We asked to use a microwave and were told that it would be a $10 extra charge – really? At the price we were spending – which did not even include any room cleaning – it is insulting to me that you’d try to milk even more money out of us for something that could have been set up and finished in 5 minutesConsidering the hotel itself was responsible for these disappointing factors in our stay, I regret paying for the room and don’t think it will be a good idea to return, even though I plan to return to Rockville many times in the future

Teresa Buchanan

This is a conference hotel but it’s also perfect for business travelers Things I loved: super fast elevator, simple interior parking, Starbucks, great bartender and kind front desk people, good work space in the room (huge desk chair), fabulous pillows, every store you need within walking distance, close to DC, AND across the street from a metro stop and regular sized grocery store (Safeway!) My FAVORITE thing? It was So

Quiet!!! Slept great!

Nature Duran-Smith

We really enjoyed our stay here! The location was GREAT We also appreciated the free parking Every one of the front desk staff was very very nice

I was pleasantly surprised at our room Much bigger than what I was anticipating! The beds were super comfy and I loved the channels on the TV My room also had a full-sized fridge, a 2 burner stove, and a dishwasher! There was an AC unit that kept the room cold, but I turned it off and used the ceiling fan instead, which was perfect! The shower door wasn’t sliding properly, but the shower was nice anyways We took advantage of the complimentary breakfast which satisfied our breakfast hunger We also took advantage of the pool! It wasn’t crowded at all and enjoyed the jacuzzi The only problem we encountered about 3 times was that our key would stop working suddenly Being on the 6th floor, it was a little annoying to keep having to take the elevator down to get a new key Other than that, my stay was comfortable and amazing and would recommend this hotel to anyone!

1 Arrived with dinner Digital key failed to work even though the app said it was ready The room door was broken and ajar when we arrived So we walked into the room without the need for a key I have never seen this at any hotel I have no idea how can a room be cleaned and inspected and someone misses that the door won’t close This is a huge security issue and calls into question whether rooms are being inspected2 Reported to the front desk and a maintenance man came to the room and after multiple trips resolved the issue by replacing the door plate that holds the door shut3 We could not see any trash cans in the suite After looking in the kitchen cabinet under the sink we found two We placed one in the bathroom and kept the other in the kitchen4 There were no bag inserts for the ice bucket After contacting the front desk we were told housekeeping would bring them by, but they never showed up4b Didn’t matter much because there was no ice machine on our floor See attached When we reported this to the front desk they acted as if this was new information and proceeded to give me directions to the ice machine5 The kitchen faucet was so loose that the entire thing lifted from the granite surface when turning it on6 The bedroom ac unit rattled very loud as if the unit was coming out of the wall We had to switch on the fan instead which was not optimal7 The hot water at the bathroom sink took a while to warm up The sink is likely clogged as it took several minutes for the water to drain8 The closet doors were open, broken, and could not be closedAs a long-time Hilton customer, I was willing to work this out because things happen, so the following morning around 5am, I requested a full or partial refund with the front desk and was told, only a Manger could honor such a request and they won’t be in until 9amI asked to be called, and was not, so around 910am I returned to the front desk and explained the room’s issues to a yet another person, she disappeared to a back office for a few minutes then returned and told me the manager doesn’t come in on Saturdays So the run-around was in playAt this point, I had interacted with 3 different employees and gotten very little serviceBy far, my biggest issue is that management refused to engage and resolve the issue This is the second time that I have stayed at a Hilton property where management leveraged its staff to avoid doing what a manager should do since the employees were not empowered toAnd so, I am left to tell others about the experienceI would not stay at this location again I would not recommend this location

My wheelchair bound son and I booked a room through our insurance for a ten day visit because our apt flooded In the fifteen minutes it took from the trip being booked and us arriving…They gave away our room for the night but tried to offer us a room the following day They said they could “try” to clean another room but that room didn’t have running water

I learned that our room was given away because as I was waiting in the lobby to check in, the hotel rep was on the phone with our insurance telling her that she gave away the room for the night despite it being available at the time of booking because someone else walked in needing a room before usBasically if you are homeless and need an insurance paid stay, these people won’t care and will give away your fully paid roomETA: the company responded but no mention of a bathroom was in my original complaint because we never stayed here… good ole auto response I guess

the inside was redone recently and is very nice The outside is a bit of a deterrent If I was driving by I would not go in

But once in the door the lobby, room, and amenities are really nice The service at the Coffee Bar was perfect The woman that served us was Awesome and not to mention we left at 11pm and returned at 8am and she was back!!!! What dedication

I feel for the most part that Courtyard in itself just kind of rides off the Marriott name and this one is no exceptionPRO’s – The hotel main floor is very clean, has ample lounge spots and overall very inviting The inside fireplace is very nice and welcoming

The little store off from the front desk is super convenient (also ridiculously expensive) The rooms have been updated(ish) with comfortable beds, new sofas, carpet yet out of place looking furniture with an early 90s persona Room service was great and they replenish with more than enough towelsCONS – The Bistro in the morning is the worst Bistro of all the Marriotts I’ve been to in the last ten years and I’ve been to ALOT The Bistro “opens” at 6:30a through the week and my rewards include free breakfast everyday Would’ve been awesome if someone was actually there at 6:30 and ready to serve Nope 6:40? Nope! Half the time closer to 7am and the poor guy from the front desk has to come over there and do the Bistro employees job BECAUSE THEY DONT SHOW UP ON TIME, CONSISTENTLY!! The food is also way overpriced for what you get, I mean…over $4 for a small bottle of water? Is this hotel THAT broke? Front desk guy needs a raise as he was doing everyone’s job most mornings, by himself The floor hallways are very long and creepy as in new carpet yet odd looking wood doors out of the 80s The keyless cards don’t work half of the time The toilet takes five flushes just to get a piece of toilet paper to actually go down Water pressure is horrible and takes ten minutes to try and get all the soap off you in the shower Undersized room TVs and only two USB ports in the whole room and those two are on top of the alarm clock The outside of the hotel is cringe and unwelcoming The grounds need major focus and look overall unkempt Killed multiple spiders in the room throughout my stay The pillows are way to flat and unsupportive Took all five of them together just to make one good one that kept my neck straight One washer and one dryer for the entire hotel that look like the first whirlpools ever invented and did not wash nor dry good at all Stairwell carpets are stained and you aren’t sure if you’re climbing stairs in a state prison or a hospitalOverall, the lobby felt more like a Marriott while everything else felt like a nice Motel 6 If you’re passing through for the night and traveling alone than this will suffice but don’t expect much because the hotel just doesn’t offer much and the staff is just kinda “there” I will most definitely not be staying with this hotel again and will not book it for any of my employees going forward

I would not recommend this spa They have major staffing issues and we have had multiple issues trying to deal with resolving issues from 11/20 through now from a 12/26 visit

They did not provide the described services and they bungled the resolution as well Don’t waste your time or money There are better options in the DC Metro area Do not recommend The hotel stay was mostly fine

This is my go-to hotel when visiting DC/McLean, Virginia

It is beautiful, and the service is fantastic! This location has luckily been able to uphold high standards and customer service from check-in to dining, concierge services, you name it! I’ve had amazing experiences speaking to agents on the phone, who are actually on location, check-in services, the wonderful greeter who is always happy to direct me in the right direction, especially while under construction! I hope the Ritz maintains this level of enthusiasm as well as standard for cleanliness… I also look forward to having breakfast at Entyse, the bistro Mona has been serving us for years and we absolutely love catching up with the staff! I would definitely give them 10 stars if possible!

I had my room canceled at another hotel and had to drive to this hotel When I arrived for an early check in, the front desk clerk (Mr Addy I believe) did an exceptional job easing my check in process

He made sure (on his own) that I had an available room and my wife and daughter was able to get some needed rest Great hotel to stay in and when I am back in town again, I know where I will be stayingBest

For a Sheraton it is not very clean The towels were not very clean But for the price it’s not bad

I paid for breakfast for four days and I only went one day I ordered two egg tortillas and they were fried in butter, but they seemed like they were drowned in that oil I really liked the location, it looks very quiet and is next to some very nice apartments

First things first, they need to remove the pool as an amenity on their booking sites When we arrived, we inquired about the pool and the host stated it was closed due to covid How could that be when the gym was open 24/7? Gym is really small but has enough quipment do get a decent workour

We stayed in a room on the 5th floor Decent size Lacks modern upgrades such as usb charging or just plain outlets at the nightstands Other than that, everything was fine The food laid out in the morning near the elevators were great They have onsite laundry services and also free parking I’d stay there again

I’ve lodged here multiple times over the past 7 months and have had good experiences The facility is neat and centrally located Food and shopping are within walking distance

What makes them stand out is their customer service— especially from Andrew! You can find Andrew cleaning and maintaining the lobby area He is always so helpful and will greet you and offer assistance willingly He, along with the other staff, are kind!One of the other staff members even assisted my husband in surprising me with flowers for our anniversary!


I enjoyed my experience at this hotelThe location itself is what sold me

I was looking for staycation to just enjoy myself and this was perfect!The hotel is surrounded by shops and good eats all in walking distance There is also a restaurant inside of the hotelThe space was clean and modern and aesthetically pleasing to the eye The staff was also kind and helpfulI would recommend!

The only reason for the 4 star is parking and no attendant to watch my bags while I went around the corner to the garage It is not attached to the hotel and my bags were not light! Having said that, I loved the room and the location Pike & Rose has lots of restaurants and shops, and the metro is not far

Very reasonably priced My view was “Bark Social,” dog park, so I was entertained every time I opened my drapes! I will stay here again with my luggage on wheels!
