Photo of The Melrose Georgetown

“Chic luxury hotel, in the upmarket area of Georgetown. Sleek, sophisticated and luxurious - the decor hits the perfect balance between modern minimalism and opulence. Experience the seasonal, inventive "farm-to-fork" cuisine at Jardenea Restaurant. An elegant and contemporary base in the capital. ”

Hotel Review

Well located in Foggy Bottom, close to George Washington University and a mile’s walk (not recommended in summer!) down Pennsylvania from the White House, the Melrose is appropriately classical, without being overly formal or solemn. Seemingly as popular with tourists as it is with business visitors the Melrose has a certain flair, as evident in the public space and room furnishings, which feature pop art-type images of George Washington extracted from the dollar bill, and also in the kitchen, where even the choice of how you like your eggs for breakfast presents something of a challenge. Generously proportioned rooms, lovely bathrooms, a nice little gym and terrific, friendly service, you can see why the State Department likes to send its foreign guests here.
