Nice Staycation/Getaway

Location: Dining & shopping are exceptional. Blues Alley is a great Jazz club to visit.
My wife & I stayed in the King Suite for our 7th anniversary. The room was much larger than we expected. The hotel staff was extremely warm and welcoming. There was a small mixup with our room service order which was promptly corrected in a very professional manner. The coffee maker was in need of cleaning and there was an empty liquor bottle from the minibar left under our desk when we arrived. Other than these very minor issues of attention to detail our stay was extremely enjoyable. Even though we live in DC we felt like we were truly on a vacation far away from home. The Graham is a great boutique hotel!!

Amazing boutique hotel in Georgetown

Pros: Beautifully appointed in a great location.
Cons: I was recently in a hotel in Porto, Portugal where they greeted me with a refreshing little drink. It was a perfect gesture.
Location: Great restaurants and walks.
Very welcoming and professional staff. Sweet little touches like having classical music playing in my room when I walked in and having the sheets turned down at night. I did not want to leave.

Fabulous Stay

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.

Just as Advertised

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.

Great Stay

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.

Exceeded expectations

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.

Hotel damaged our car in their garage

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.

Close to Washington Harbor

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!

only one bed

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!!

Do not set your expectations to high.

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.

Nearby Activities

The hotel provides a 24-hour fitness facility on the property which can be accessed by all guests at their convenience.

The towpath along the 19th-century C&O Canal is popular for walking and jogging. Access is a half-block from the hotel. Spring through fall, mule-drawn barge rides provide a novel way to enjoy the scenery. During those months, the mules are stationed right by the canal—and are eminently pettable. Canoes are also available for rent.

Just north of busy M Street, tree-lined residential streets invite leisurely strolls past stately old townhouses and mansions. For a good walk that embraces both the quiet and bustle of Georgetown, guests can head north on 31st Street NW (2 blocks from the hotel). Stop by Tudor Place, a historic manor with exquisite gardens. A few blocks farther is the Dumbarton Oaks estate, where brick-paved paths wind through lavish floral displays, statuary, fountains, and pools. The route continues west on R Street NW, then south to lively Wisconsin Avenue, with its shops, antiques dealers, and cafés. At the foot of Wisconsin is the Potomac waterfront and the glitzy Washington Harbour development, with views of the Kennedy Center and the Watergate complex. The hotel is about 2 blocks away.
