Fabulous 8.8 From 1,280 reviews

Good 6.0
First room was not cleaned. The second room did have a balcony but no bath tub. The ceiling in the room was wet from water damage which caused the room to smell damp. I tried calling the front desk for 2 hrs with no answer until finally I had to walk down to the front desk.

A wonderful and unique experience for me. It was better than my hopes and expectations. The staff, all of them, were courteous and helpful. The food, in-room service and dining room was scrumptious. I loved every minute even as the Corona Virus was beginning to affect all, I'm so glad I got to enjoy the Watergate before the COVID-19 real craziness set in.

Good 6.0
The hotel overall was very nice and clean . But they charge you extra that you are not aware of and they dont explain it to you before hand. After paying for the room they still wanted an extra $150 deposit per night per room .
Shelby, us3 night trip
Fair 4.0
They didn't offer a complementary/continental breakfast. I would expect something like that for $400 /night. You could get 2 eggs and a slice of bacon for $24. Lesser hotels offer that closer to the mall. The room was pretty small too. There's also the $30/day resort fee. Not sure what I got for that. Maid staff was friendly and kept the room impeccably clean
