Overview

Standard rooms are spacious
There are few on-site amenities

Like its sister property in Georgetown, this Ritz-Carlton offers no shortage of elegance. And with its enviable location, set in Northwest's Foggy Bottom area just a few blocks north of George Washington University, these stylish digs draw high-power politicos, celebrities and international guests alike. Apart from its star clientele, the Ritz boasts a wide array of amenities, including the acclaimed on-site restaurant, Westend Bistro, a vibrant hot spot known for its flavorful American fare. The Ritz also touts unique property features, such as a 10,000-square-foot ballroom and 16,000 square feet of meeting space. But what guests seem to love the most are the spacious rooms here, which all include large Italian marble bathrooms, sumptuous feather beds, 400-thread-count Egyptian cotton linens and sleek flat-screen TVs. Keep in mind that members of the Marriott Bonvoy program can earn and use points by staying here.

Only seven years young, the downtown Ritz-Carlton feels like an old-fashioned grand hotel, where bellmen wear white gloves and the clubby old-boy bar fairly rings with the sound of shoulders being clapped.

Everything about the recently renovated Ritz is welcoming and beautiful, down to the complimentary coffee and tea (hot chocolate and hot apple cider in winter) in the lobby. A soothing gray and blue palette with pops of red, Chihuly glass, architectural details that plays off historic D.C., a super friendly and boot-camp-trained staff, and a quiet location in the West End near Georgetown make this hotel an outstanding experience.
