    Experienced late check-in - room wasn't ready for 2 hours. Limited hot water. Location not convenient for tourist activities, although okay for Georgetown.

    Tremendous experience and WELL worth it!

    Everything about my stay at The Watergate was top notch. The hotel and rooms really are as nice as in the pictures. Most hotels never seem to be as they present themselves. The Watergate, however, does NOT disappoint! Opening my room door for the first time felt as if I was walking into the photos themselves. The staff are incredible. There was an unforeseen issue with my flight coming into town, making me a day late. A simple 2 minute phone call to the hotel (no BS wait times) to give them a heads up was all it took. Upon arrival the next day, the very first person I interacted with had full knowledge of my situation, knew me by name, and already had my room key in-hand. Check-in and check-out was a breeze. Can't beat the location (a short walk and I was at the White House) and the restaurant downstairs (Kingbird) is phenomenal. Would highly recommend to anyone.

About

Overview

The Watergate Hotel is an indelible piece of American history that is ready to show guests the future of hospitality.

There’s nothing sneaky about it: the Watergate is set to impress. Guests have the option of staying in the coveted scandal room, which was used in the actual break-in in 1972. It is decorated by Lyn Paolo, who designs costumes for the hit show Scandal. It features a 48” flat screen TV and even robes to help you “Cover Up.”

The rest of the rooms and suites each have their own unique charm and appeal. Instead of using a cookie-cutter framework for room design, the Watergate makes each room as significant as the guests that occupy them. Touches of luxury are incorporated into the experience such as marble bathrooms with warm, welcoming tones that inspire comfort.

The dining experience is as iconic as the hotel’s history itself. Guests can dine either inside or outside. Regardless of the choice, they will be surrounded by awe-inspiring architectural choices, accented by modern, clean lines and oversized fixtures. The option to sit in a couch-comfortable chair while gazing outside is available, as is a position on the patio with an impressive view on the side. The cocktail list features signature creations with fresh ingredients. At the Kingbird, guests have the option to indulge in freshly cooked beef, locally sourced fish and seafood, and farm fresh ingredients from local area suppliers.

The Watergate provides an opportunity for guests to truly blend in with a piece of American history.
