    Would have rated higher but my AC stopped working in the middle of the night making the room really uncomfortable. Also my floor’s ice maker was broken and had been long enough that they put a laminated sign on it, it’s unacceptable to suggest just going down or up a flight of stairs in a hotel of this caliber. Most disappointing was the roof deck remaining closed even though the website said it would reopen in May.

    The view didn’t really justify the extra $ for the room...

    Exceptional 10.0
    Amazing hotel in DC!
    For the location of hotel and brand of hotel, parking should’ve been included in per night stay price. Also, if the hotel rooms were available after travel delays, should’ve been offered a room upgrade instead of being asked for a room upgrade. The rooms were impeccable in condition and the bathroom was spacious and luxurious. Would definitely recommend staying here and will stay here again when in DC.

    Poor communication with limited services
    Rooms were not cleaned after the first night and guest services told me that I was informed which I never was and hotels.com never carried this information to me either.

    My husband and I stayed at Intercontinental for one night while passing through Washington, DC. The hotel was very nice and clean. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The location is really nice with it being waterfront and close to restaurants. We plan to stay there again.

    I don’t appreciate it taking a week for my incidental charges to be reversed Y’all need to change that cause y’all knew a week ago I didn’t use no to big extra in that room so it shouldn’t have taken but 24 hours to reverse the charge I won’t be coming back
