This place exceeded my expectations. Went for a quick weekend birthday trip for my husband. We enjoyed the amenities as well as the spa. We felt spoiled our entire trip! We would love to come back and stay again!
The breakfast and hotelstaff were excellent. A great hotel for a stay in this beautiful city.
The personnel at the rooftop bar could have been friendlier. They were giving the impression that the guests are there for them and not the other way around.
Part of the beautiful historic Watergate grounds, Great rooftop bar, and excellent staff.
All was perfect
Front Desk staff @ Check in time was Very very Rude and Downgraded my Room for no reason
Beautiful interior and rooms and great view from the rooftop bar. Crack staff at the front desk/concierge and the doormen are super professional
Parking staff and front desk don't communicate with each other. Ive tased at this hotel several times and when I call the front desk to ask that my car be brought out from the garage it is never done...I then have to wait for 10 minutes to get my car
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.
