Great newly renovated hotel
Great hotel, newly renovated closed to the Kennedy Centre.
Ginette, ca2 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Awesome hotel. The renovation is stunning. The rooms are spacious and well designed. The food in the restaurant is excellent and the roof top bar was fun at night. The "iceskating" is a nice touch. The hotel is pet friendly which is another plus and you can walk to the Kennedy Centre, waterfront dining and Georgetown shopping and restaurants. Loved it. Only negative is the seating in the lobby is not that comfortable and while there is a nice library area to relax in, those seats are even worse. Other then that, I highly recommend the Watergate hotel.

Fantastic
Fantastic stay! We were greeted by a friendly and hospitable staff. The service was top notch. Excellent restaurant and bar. The gym was the best gym I have ever seen in a hotel; everything you could need or want.
Jolene, ca3 night family trip
Very Good 8.0
Beautifully renovated hotel! Rooms are spacious, clean and beds very comfortable. Quiet I would stay there again. Within walking distance to monuments, although it's a 15-20 minute walk. Not many restaurants in immediate vicinity but Georgetown is in walking distance with many options along the harbour and among the quaint shops.

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 .
