Bottom Line

HOTEL HAS UNDERGONE A FULL SCALE RENOVATION. OYSTER IS IN THE PROCESS OF UPDATING ITS REVIEW. After massive renovations in 2012, the Melrose emerged with a sleek, modern style that puts it back on par with some of DC's nicer hotels. A stylish restaurant and updated fitness center round out the solid amenities. And rooms are big and bright, but still unpretentious, with a grey and white color palate and pops of color. It's comfortable but still stylish.Other choices in the area include two all-suite options: the charming River Inn (which usually costs a little more) and the modest but value-packed Washington Suites (which usually costs a little less).

Oyster Hotel Review


Located in the West End] within walking distance of Georgetown, the White House, and other historic sights

Map of The Melrose Hotel Washington

The hotel has a convenient location on the southern edge of the West End, which is decidedly sleepier than more historic Georgetown, a 10- to 15-minute walk away. The downside to the vicinity is that there aren't a ton of restaurants, cafes or signs of life -- for that, you'll need to head to Dupont Circle, a 15- to 20-minute walk (or quick taxi), or to nearby Georgetown.

  • A five-minute walk from the Foggy Bottom-GWU Metro stop
  • A 10- to 20-minute walk to the heart of Georgetown
  • Trader Joe's across the street, great for stocking up on snacks
  • Five- to 10-minute walk to George Washington University
  • 20- to 25-minute walk or five- to 10-minute taxi to sights like the White House and Lincoln Memorial
  • 15- to 20-minute walk, two Metro stops (including a transfer), or five- to 10-minute taxi to Dupont Circle
