U.S. News Review

Elegant and trendy, The Graham makes an excellent addition to DC's upscale Georgetown neighborhood. New to the capital's hospitality scene, this petite property has made a good impression on Washington visitors with its stylish decor. The 57 guest rooms boast a bright color palate infused with blues and reds, as well as flat-screen TVs, pillow-top mattresses and oversized bathrooms stocked with luxury bath products. Guests love The Graham's look and feel, but many note that noise from nearby M Street, Georgetown's main drag, can lead to a restless night. But if you can't beat 'em, join 'em — at the hotel's highly acclaimed rooftop bar, The Observatory. Visitors love the views of downtown D.C. and the top-shelf cocktails. For something a little more filling, head to The Alex, located below the lobby, for classic American fare.

Critic Reviews

New York Times

“Tranquil, modern rooms paired with a vibrant rooftop offer hotel guests equal parts serenity and excitement, not to mention a tucked-away spot from which to start exploring the city.”

Lonely Planet

“Set smack in the heart of Georgetown, the Graham occupies the intersection between stately tradition and modernist hip. ... ven the most basic rooms have linens by Liddell Ireland and Bvlgari White Tea bath amenities, which means you'll be as fresh, clean and beautiful as the surrounding Georgetown glitterati.”
Award: Lonely Planet Recommended


“The seasonal (spring through fall) Observatory rooftop bar offers ones of the best views in town; it wraps around the building, so you’re able to take in Georgetown and the cityscape, including the Washington Monument, from various angles.”
Award: Frommer's Highly Recommended
