Nice Staycation

Nov 22nd, 2020

Just needed a change of scenery and decided to give The Watergate a try. I've driven by numerous times and never thought of staying until I saw other reviews calling it a quiet spot in the city. And that's exactly what it was. The location is close to everything but still off the beat and path. Check-in was quick and staff were polite and helpful. The hotel was clean and safety precautions were in place. I selected a river review with a balcony and thankfully the weather was unseasonably warm so I could enjoy it. Was extremely thankful for the mini in-room refrigerator. I also was able to take advantage of the indoor pool which I had to myself. The only drawback is the walls are thin so you can hear the murmur of music and conversations in the next door rooms. But this definitely wasn't a deal breaker and I will stay again.

Too expensive for what it is, but great balcony and great view!

Oct 15th, 2020

The hotel is too expensive for what it is, and is really not in the best condition. It needs updates really bad, and I went back and forth between a four and a five star, and decided to give 5 in the end, because (i) the view is absolutely breathtaking, including some of the most well known to-see places in DC, and (ii) the balcony is just amazing (though the balcony itself also needs updates); you can sit at night and observe the city and all the monuments. If updated, it could easily be one of the top hotels in town. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

The ‘Notorious’ Watergate

Apr 14th, 2020

The service was really good, they even provided slippers. The location is okay, it’s a little far from everything is. Do watch out for the extra fee. The house keeping needs some improvements for sure. Not everything was replenished. Because of its unique location, I could see the plane on the balcony. There’s even an rooftop bar on the top floor to enjoy the sunset. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Scandal Tour and Whiskey Bar

Apr 1st, 2020

My husband and I were touring downtown DC when I suggested we go to the Watergate Hotel for a drink. We had never been there and it was closed down for so long. Upon entering the hotel we were immediately greeted by the staff at the check in desk who were very nice and helpful. They directed us to the Whiskey Bar. The bar was just opening at 4:00 pm. The bartenders were so welcoming. (I wish I could remember their names). We immediately struck up a conversation and settled in with a yummy drink!! We discussed the hotel and they asked had we ever taken the Scandal Tour. We had not and next thing we knew Zacharia Powers, Bell Captain, was there to take us on the tour!! The tour was amazing!! He took us to the room where the Watergate Scandal took place. The room is so full of memorabilia and Zach was so knowledgeable of all the events that took place. It was one of the best tours I have ever taken in Washington DC. If you are planning a trip to DC in the future I would highly recommend visiting the Whiskey Bar at the Watergate Hotel and taking the Scandal Tour. All the staff we encountered at the hotel were A+.
