While this hotel does have an indoor pool (too cold for non-swimmers) a hot tub as do most hotels and a rare to find sauna, it all costs extra-Everything here does. Otherwise I would call the Watergate bare bones. No gift shop or travelers store or kiosk. No place to buy a charger. No binder of local restaurants in the rooms which you will need due to their restaurant's lack of hours, lack luster selection and exorbitant prices. Want to watch a movie? Even an old one (The Rock 1996) will cost you 20$ You are left with basic cable otherwise. Can't get your own ice-no instructions in the room tell you to call the front desk for it, no stocked mini-fridge Yes everything is clean and the front of house staff is very helpful. it seems management needs to step up and invest in There is nothing special about this place besides the location.

Hotel's Favourite
The Watergate Hotel is in the perfect location between Foggy Bottom and Georgetown. Guests are within walking distance to shopping, the National Mall, monuments, historic Georgetown and more. If you aren't walking, leaving the hotel by car is very easy - access to Memorial Bridge, I-66, and Whitehurst Freeway. On top of the great location is amazing customer service! Everyone greets you with a smile and goes out of their way to make sure your stay is amazing!

We thoroughly enjoy this hotel and look forward to coming here often. We chose to have our wedding here this past December. During this experience with The Watergate, Elizabeth was fantastic and made sure that our stay and experience was truly wonderful. She was so attentive, responsive, thoughtful, and is truly an asset to the hotel. Elizabeth was the sole reason my husband and I had a wonderful time and a new reason for us to return. I would recommend staying and booking any upcoming events with them. You'll be in amazing hands!
