Great location near the waterfront and the canal, spacious rooms thoughtfully decorated with very comfortable beds and quality extras. Very nice continental breakfast, although it's realy designed as a breakfast bar (no seating area, so we carried it back to our room, which was a very pleasant suite nicely set up for multiple use). Helpful, pleasant staff, and very well maintained rooms and common areas. It was a little bit of a walk to the Metro (about a mile), but on very comfortable and pedestrian-friendly streets (we had a lot of company on our walks). The hotel is in a lively area, so expect a little noise in the evenings (and often into the early morning hours). Great selection of restaurants and shops in easy walking distance. We were pleasantly surprised--travelling with a teenager, it was nice to have a separate room in the suite with its own tv to give her some ''alone'' time while we relaxed in the master bedroom.
I booked this room because of its location and close proximity to Washington Harbor. The staff couldn't have possibly been any more friendlier or helpfull. The hotel is one block from M street and all the shops. Two short blocks slightly downhill is the harbor with fabulous waterfront dining. About half a block away is the C&O canal where you can ride the boat pulled by horses. On M street you can take the buses into DC for all the sights. We will definitely return to this hotel!
The Monticello was in a great location, near M and Wisconsin Streets, plenty of restaurants and shopping... I felt safe even though I was traveling alone. I was pleased with the friendly and professional staff, as well as the roomy suite. It's a great value.
Great location in historic Georgetown near great shops and restaurants. The rooms are 2 room suites, very comfortable and relaxing, tastefully decorated. My only complaint is that DC was having unseasonably warm weather the first day of the trip, the room was very stuffy. When I complained they said they don't turn the air on until the second week of April! It should be based on need, not an arbitrary date. I would definately return to this hotel again but I would inquire about the status of the air conditioning before booking.
Stayed at the Hotel Monticello on weekend of June 12/13. Was very favorably impressed. Small lobby, no bar for after hours but that didn't matter because M street is filled with such establishments. Front desk personnel were affable and helpful. Great location. Fifty yards from M street and half a block from everything happening on the Potomac: restaurants, bars, boat rides, etc. Room which were actually suites were beautiful! Large sitting room with two chair and sofa and tv. Bedroom had nice queen and again tv. Four windows in our room was light and breezy. Would not hesitate to stay in this hotel again and would even encourage friends of mine to do same.
My parents and I recently stayed at the Hotel Montecello in Georgetown (Washington DC) and were very pleased with our experience. The rooms were spacious and the staff was friendly and helpful. It was also located in the heart of the Georgetown area, only steps from many shops and restaurants. It was also a very short walk down to the Washington Harbour which was lovely (nice view of the Kennedy Center). My only complaint would be that it was located a bit farther from the nearest Metro station than I would have liked. A 20 minute walk was fine in the mornings but in the evenings when we were returning from a full day of walking and sight-seeing, it seemed like a very long walk back to the hotel. Overall the expereience at the Hotel Montecello was wonderful and I would definitely recommend it to others and would stay there again myself.
I booked 1-bedroom suite for family of 4. It turned out that there was only one king-size bed in the bedroom and pull-out sofa in the living room. I was expecting 2 beds in the bedroom or this hotel shouldn't be available for booking for 4 people. Breakfast is very minimal and there is no breakfast room! Get ready to pay $30/day for parking. Great location!!
The hotel is unprofessionally run. The staff is rude. Few amenities for the price. No high-speed internet as advertised. \n \nThe valet damaged our car when attempting to pull it up from their very small garage. The front passenger side was gouged causing $* of body repair. My wife and I communicated with the head manager who refused to admit fault and their very amateurish insurance carrier was uncooperative. We are now stuck with a $* repair bill. \n \nThe bottom line, you may save money on the room, but you may also have your car mangled. Don't stay in this hotel.
The hotel's location was fantastic. Located very near shops, various restaurants, and only about a 12 minute walk from the Metro.
large elegant rooms. Fluffy white terry robes. Room had a bar area with small fridge, coffeepot and microwave. Nice marbled bath and large separate dressing area. Comfy beds. Lots of nice toiletries. Attentive staff accomodating to questions and requests. Great location for walking around Georgetown. We would return!
This hotel is so comfortable - big rooms, great location, friendly staff. Continental breakfast rolls not too fresh but lots of choices nearby for breakfast so not a problem. Free internet terminal is also a plus. Rooms have refrigerator, coffee maker and small sink. Very nice for 4 day stay.
With the weather changing into the spring season the room was uncomfortably hot. Airconditioning was not available. The evening street noise and sirens with the windows opens did not add to the expected charm and ambience of this hotel. The continental breakfast was extremely minimal. A considerable walk to the metro...not convenient for coming and going. A good location for Georgetown and full-day excursions. Would definitely choose a different hotel on my next trip.
Nice bed and bathroom area. Staff was nice! The window treatments did not cover entire window. The rooms are paper thin meaning the outside of the room is able to be heard and will wake you up. It was so bad that you could hear low voice conversations as well.
We enjoy the location, shops near by, the sight around, people were very friendly, too much to do in such a short time. Well, we tought the parking was included in our bill, but apparently it wasn't. It would be nice if you let us know beforehand.
Our room was clean. Room extremely small. Limited closet and bathroom space.
Excellent location, friendly staff, didn't mind the small room. Lots of early morning noise outside the windows and also from the floor above.
The bed was great. I was surprised to not have to pay for valet parking aside from the gratuity. The location is great but the rooms are noisy. All night I heard the TV and bathroom in the next room. I could also hear people walking and talking in the hallway. I know it is an old hotel but these are not things I would expect given the price. Also the check-in time is to late in the day. The service in the Grill was horrible. They seemed completely overwhelmed with the number of tables being serve. I actually had to go looking for our waitress to get my tab. Again, not what I would have expected. Bottom line - over priced and not recommended.
I arrived late in the evening and they gave me the most incredible, huge, presidential-style suite, with 5 rooms - maybe 1500 sq feet? I could not believe it. Probably sold out all the other cheaper rooms, but it was definitely the best room I've ever had. Unfortunately I only stayed for less than 12 hours, so didn't get to use it as much as I would have liked. Another thing I appreciated was that I got sick and couldn't make my first night reservation and had to cancel within the allotted 24 hr timeframe. But the Ritz Carlton did not charge me for that first night. They waived it. That was very helpful. Their service is 5 star. The only downside to this hotel is that I do not believe it is handicapped friendly. You cannot get from the lobby area to your room without going down stairs. Of course there are porters to carry your luggage, but I wonder if they have some way for people in wheelchairs to get to their rooms?
very comfortable room, very responsive staff, centrally located, quiet.
It is a well situated hotel with a very good restaurant
Room was clean,comfortable and private, water pressure in bathtub was good. Cafeteria in first floor was a plus. No refrigerator in room, very small closet, and yes you can hear nosises at times depending on how loud your neighbors are. No free WIFi in rooms? Only in lobby...that is soo 2008.
location small bathroom
Las instalaciones son muy cómodas y el barrio en donde está ubicado es muy lindo La cocina debería tener algo mas de equipamiento,dado que posee horno y microondas,freezeer etc pero faltan fuentes y otros accesorios para poder calentar comida
La ubicacion. El mobiliario, en particular la cocina.
Las habitacionbes muy amplias y luminosas El desayuno un poco limitado. Es más un apartamento que un hotel.
confort de las habitaciones
Excelente ubicacion en una zona magnifica de paseo habitacion muy cercana al lugar para fumar en la puerta del hotel, la gente habla y bromea, no dejando dormir a hora adecuada
Amplitud de la habitacion y equipamiento. Zona residencial de Washington muy cercana a todos los puntos de interes. Practicamente esta situado en M Street, la calle de las compras de Washinton La zona del desayuno era un poco pequeña.
La ubicación y el trato de cortesía de todo el personal,sobretodo en la recepción solucionando todas nuestras inquietudes.Somos cluentes de varios años. No.
El hotel es muy bueno, la habitacion es excelente posee cocina, la ubicacion es excelente, el desayuno muy basico, pero en general 100% recomendado< esta ubicado en una zona excelente donde puedes comer, caminar y comprar, tiene todo cerca, el autobus de turismo, pasa a una cuadra. El desayuno es muy basico, le hace falta algo caliente como huevos, tocinetas
Ubicación Trato del Personal de Recepción: Poco profesional. Zona de desayunos y variedad de los mismos.
Muy bien ubicado. Habitaciones amplias, luminosas, bien diseñadas y cuidadas
Ambiente acogedor. Cama cómoda. El personal es agradable. Alojamiento suite vintage en la zona de estar de la cocina. No sacaron la basura no sacaron debajo del fregadero de la cocina. Instalaciones: creo que Jetsons es como una casa de retiro
la ubicacion, lo agradable del lugar y la atencion.El silencio de las habitaciones nada
Lo que mas me gusto fue la habitacion es realmente confortable,,,es amplia,,,,la cama super bien,,,,,todo.....la ubicacion es excelente....lo recomiendo MMMmmmm....todo esta excelente por su precio
su ubicación la distribución de las habitaciones
Hotel bien situado y personal bastante agradable y servicial. La relación calidad precio me parece un poco alta y el desayuno deja algo que desear sólo café, chocolate de máquina y algún tipo de bollería. Alquilé una suite con capacidad para 4 personas, la cama del salón era fué una auténtica tortura para los acompañantes.
los desayunos estan muy bien y el servico de bebidas calientes todo el dia
Las habitaciones son amplias,hay una mini cocina con nevera,microondas..de todo. Es un hotel un poco antiguo,y la habitación tenia poca luz.
Es un hotel excelente, limpio con un personal agradable. El desayuno completo con una fruta buenisima.Las habitaciones muy ampliasd y el barrio perfecto. esta un poco alejado del centro pero el metro no esta lejos. Poe la noche hay muy buen ambiente en la calle M que esta muy cerca.
Habitaciones muy grandes, muy buena ubicación, hotel tranquilo. Hotel antiguo con poca renovación, desayuno malo.
amplitud y comodidad de las habitaciones
Muy simpática toda la gente del hotel ,serviciales y muy colaboradores con el cliente. Me gustó todo
