Very Good 8.0
Watergate DC
The standout at the Watergate is the service: the staff is literally amazing. I don't think I've ever stayed at a hotel where the staff was more committed to customer service and ensuring that guests are well-treated. Five stars for service, definitely. The one negative is the wifi, which mysteriously stopped working for me around midnight and nothing I could do would bring it back. I'm still mystified. Great pool, great workout facilities. Very comfortable room with superb bathrobes and a wonderful overhead shower. Newspapers and decent coffee in the morning made this a great place to stay. The only negative is the location, which is fairly off the beaten track if you're a walker, like I am, and Uber/Lyft drivers can't seem to find the hotel entrance, which means you have to flag them down on the street (not fun in the rain). On the other hand, it's close to Foggy Bottom METRO so if you're public-transit minded it's not too bad. Overall, it's a fine place to stay if you're not greatly concerned about location.

Last vacation before school starts back
With all the places to choose for our DC vacation I know without doubt I made the right choice staying at the Watergate. It's a huge part of the American history as well, which was a great 'history" lesson for our 8 year old.

A bit dated, but nice overall.
A bit dated, but a great area and staff. Very clean, but issues with the a/c made our stay less than completely comfortable (it was 90 degrees outside). Great location. A little pricy, all things considered.
