Fodor's Review

Luxury oozes from every polished marble surface at one of Washington's most upscale hostelries, and personalized service makes you feel pampered. Beds are dressed in 400-thread-count Egyptian cotton linens and have earned the reputation as some of the most comfortable in town, and bathrooms feature large marble tubs and separate showers. The hotel's critically acclaimed Westend Bistro by Eric Ripert serves American fare and has amassed a loyal following. Guests rave about

the complimentary baked goods and coffee by the elevators, and the chauffered Mercedes house car available for local transportation within a 3-mile radius.

Fabulous Concierge Level

To us, the D.C. Ritz concierge lounge is second only to the Fairmont Southhampton (Bermuda) in service and generosity. We have found other hotel concierge lounges (including other Ritz's) sometiems skimp on food service. This Ritz was first class with an open bar and abundent food. During our five night stay, we only dined out twice. Our suite was roomy & luxurious with nice-sized living and private sleeping areas. The hotel is very convenient, a

short walk to the Foggy Bottom Metro. The Sports Club/LA is a nice bonus.

Ritz Gets My Raves

This hotel is superb in every area. Stayed on the Club Level, with 5 food presentations every day (quality of food and selection outstanding), complimentary beverages of all types, and excellent service by the staff. Personal service, knowing us by name, by all staff members, from the doorman to the bellman. Most comfortable hotel beds anywhere! Truly a value in luxury.

Another winner for the RC in DC

I've spent two long weekends at this property and enjoyed both stays. The rooms are plush, clean and luxurious (which for the RC is their version of cookie cutter). It's definitely the flagship of the four RCs in the DC area. Club is very nice, with a more-spacious than average lounge. I haven't needed lots of assistance from the staff, but they have always seemed eager and friendly. The nearest Metro stop is about 5mins away at Foggy Bottom.

My minor quibble: the attached LA Sports Club is fantastic in its size and facilities, but when you're paying from $250/night and up (way up in some cases!) do they *really* need to charge $10/day to use it?
