Hyatt Regency Washington DC Review

A friend of mine won a raffle put on by the Washington State Lottery that included airfare, tickets to an NFL Playoff Game, and two nights at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill.

We stayed at the hotel Saturday-Monday in January.  The hotel overall was fairly quiet. Great location near the Capitol; but otherwise you will need to plan on a bit of a walk to anything.

On the weekend, prepare to travel a good distance for meals as there are no restaurants besides in the hotel and the hotel across the street. The food in the Hyatt is decent and moderate price, so not a big deal to eat there; but just realize you are eating in the hotel lobby. They have a nice shop that sells all sorts of snacks, water, drinks and even has a small cafe for coffee and pastries. The staff was great, always helpful and cheerful. We enjoyed talking with the doorman especially.

We visited the pool and work out area — looked clean and nice, but know that there is no hot tub.

People complained about the remodel, but we never noticed it. The room we had was modern but small. The one negative is the walls are very thin so you can hear conversations in the neighboring rooms.  Probably not usually a problem but when you have pro football players staying next door, well, they can get a bit rowdy.

We didn’t pay for our room (our room was booked by the Seahawks and they were also staying there), however I looked at the prices and they were VERY inexpensive (at least on a weekend in January).

I would go back; especially if I wanted to be close to the Capitol. Nothing to write home about, it is a chain hotel that does things well.
