The Melrose Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel

- Fresh from a multimillion-dollar renovation in 2013
- The restaurant features farm-to-fork cuisine
- The White House, Jefferson Memorial & National Gallery are a 10-minute drive
A trendy location, a Pennsylvania Avenue address and dozens of nearby attractions are just a few of the reasons to make the stylish Melrose Georgetown Hotel your base when visiting Washington DC.
Along the banks of the Potomac River, historic Georgetown was founded in 1751 and is home to the notable sightseeing spots, such as The City Club Tavern, and less than a 10-minute drive from The White House, Jefferson Memorial and National Gallery of Art.
Back at the hotel, Jardenea Restaurant serves food all day, with dishes such as Maryland crab cake, duo of duck confit and fillet of beef with white truffle potatoes, on the menu. The continental breakfast includes pastries served with butter and preserves freshly squeezed orange juice and coffee or tea. There's also the Jardenea Lounge, serving cleverly named cocktails -- try the Washington Ale and Spicy Politician.
The oversized guest rooms were all re-vamped in 2013 and house contemporary Washington DC-inspired artwork, mini fridges, a Serta Pillow-Top bed and a marble bathroom. Upgrade to an Executive King Suite for 55-square-metres of space, a separate living area and dining table for four.
