Great hotel. Roof top bar needs work”

Great retro design hotel with friendly staff and clean, comfortable rooms. The King Bird restaurant food is outstanding. One of the best in DC. I don’t understand why the Top of the Gate rooftop bar is open during the day during the summer. It is unbearably hot and uncomfortable. There are no table umbrellas and no shade over the bar. The black granite bar top burned my arm. The poor bartenders wearing all black clothes suffered in the intense heat. Either provide shaded areas or close the bar during the hot season.

Love the watergate ”

I really enjoy staying at this hotel the staff is amazing down to housekeeping. Every single staff member I encountered was so polite and helpful. The rooms are great. For the price your getting what you pay for and that’s a amazing hotel experience and stay. This is my second time staying here and I’ll be back for the future. They have amazing amenities. I even ordered room service he was so nice and professional I felt like I was in a five star restaurant when I only ordered truffle fries and wings when He delivered it. So this hotel is a 10/10 for me.

a brief stay”

We just stayed for one night and spent most of that night out on the town. The rooftop bar looked pleasant, and I want to try it and the other facilities some time when we can stay longer. The architecture was distinctive, looking more like a modernist airport than like a typical luxury hotel. The room had hip, modern decor. The bed was big and comfortable. The thermostat worked properly. The minibar was expensive, but what do you expect? The way the elevator works was confusing at first: You need to choose your floor on a panel outside before you get in.
