Great Georgetown location and excellent staff, guests say
This hotel charges for in-room Wi-Fi access
If you're looking for crème de la crème of D.C. digs, recent guests say you can't go wrong with this Ritz-Carlton. The first thing it gets right: its Georgetown location. The second: its decor. Red brick walls hug both the interior and exterior of this property, and cool tones throughout the hotel are reminiscent of the nearby waterfront. The calming color palette extends into the stylish accommodations, which are appointed with 400-thread-count Egyptian cotton linens, flat-screen TVs, minibars and Wi-Fi access (for a fee). Craving more luxury? Retreat to the lavish spa to indulge in a rejuvenating massage. However, what really sets this Ritz apart – aside from its top-notch amenities – is its elegant, relaxed ambiance. Guests can't stop raving about the contemporary, airy design of The Living Room lobby lounge, which features an inviting, wood-burning fireplace. Visitors also exalt Degrees Bistro, the Ritz's intimate dining venue that specializes in gourmet American fare. Keep in mind that this hotel participates in the Marriott Bonvoy program.

Forget gilded mirrors. The 86-room Ritz-Carlton Georgetown, housed in an historic industrial building, has the original brick and steel beams and a cozy slate fireplace in the lobby. But its aesthetic allure drops off from there.



This cozy, intimate Ritz–Carlton incorporates a turn-of-the-20th-century, brick-walled incinerator in historic Georgetown, and it doesn’t skip a beat by utilizing the industrial, masculine lines in a tastefully modern and upscale way.

Fodor's Choice



Elegance and history merge at this intimate hotel in the restored Georgetown incinerator between the river and the canal.
