This hotel doesn't look like other Ritz-Carltons. It is the nicely renovated, former home of the Georgetown incinerator! As such, it has a fire theme. There's usually a fireplace going in the lobby, and there are complimentary s'mores. Look for the information stand that describes the history of the location, as well as historic preservation efforts nearby.
The front desk staff is superb, with a “can do” attitude befitting the brand. And the banquet room is gorgeous.
I had a little trouble finding the hotel. You reach South Street off the lower part of Wisconsin Avenue, closer to the waterfront.

The Ritz is fabulous, no doubt about it. The lobby is pristine and magnificent with wood, marble, glass and gold trim. The rooms look stunning on their Web site, but mine was just really nice. It seemed standard – two white beds, piles of pillows, a chair and desk, etc., not really Ritzy. But the bathroom made up for it. It was giant and had separate tub and shower areas. The mirror had a carved wood gold frame that was positively regal.
There’s no fitness room here, but guests can use the Sports Club next door – for $15 per person per day.
TV personality Eric Ripert just severed ties with the restaurant, Westend Bistro, but the local food critic likes it, so it’s probably still good. But you’re in Foggy Bottom, so everything from Subway to Kinkead’s is within walking distance.

This is everything you would expect in a Ritz-Carlton. The one draw back is that because it is built into the side of the hill cell reception can be seriously spotty and some of the rooms feel a bit dark. That said, the rooms are well furnished and the size of a regular hotel room. Just be aware that you might miss a call or drop a call or two while here.
