Fodor's Review

With many of the beautifully decorated rooms offering treetop views of the Potomac River and the C&O Canal and a refreshing rooftop pool, it's not surprising you'll find many diplomats overnighting here. The polished-brass-and-glass lobby leads to Citronelle, one of the city's most acclaimed (and expensive) French restaurants—make reservations well before you arrive; a number of Washington's most illustrious personalities dine here.

Dirty Lobby

The room I stayed in was satisfactory, altough there was no mini bar. The sheets and towels were clean. I was slightly concerned when I stepped on a two inch tack on the floor on the side of my bed. Luckily, no blood was drawn, but I was curious as to how it got there. Citronelle was another story altogther. The wait staff was surely and incompetent. We had to ask for everyhing twice, there was a dirty table that remained dirty throughout our meal

(we arrived toward the end of Brunch service), and the food was moderate...a huge disapointment. The location was great.

DIRTY LOBBY/LOUSY ROOM/SURLY STAFF

We took a room which was a duplex--no light with the beds in a garrick, which was claustrophobic. The water pressure was English at best; the complimentary toiletries were bog standard; the lobby was filthy and the staff in the restaurant was surly. And the rates were confiscatory! Great location, shame about the place.

Lackadaisical at the Latham

Stayed in bi-level Carriage Suite on 6th floor (628). This hotel is faded. Though billed as a luxury property, it certainly isn't. Very good Georgetown location, but far from main sites. The room was shabby with peeling wallpaper and stained carpeting. The bed was wonderful, though the linens need replacing. No minibar in room. No hang tags left for breakfast. Call for hang tages resulted in one hour wait one night and a no show the next. No hot water

in bathroom for washing or shower, mildly lukewarm. Complaints didn't help the situation.No effort made to assist. Worst part was this was bought on a package but the final bill charged for all the things which were supposed to be included such as breakfasts and a dinner credit at Citronelle. By the way Citronelle was INCREDIBLE and made much of the aggravation feel lessened.

A cute place in a Great area

I stayed here quite a while ago and I remembered it being very lovely. The lobby is small and plush and everything was well decorated. The staff was very friendly and down to earth. The only problem with the hotel is that even though the rooms are nice, they are really really small. other than that, it is a gem.
