10 Stars for the Watergate Hotel!!

Amazing!! From check-in to check out everyone was friendly and helpful. The room was superb. The room service was quick and the food was delicious. We had a balcony room and it was so nice to sit outside and watch the planes and just relax after a day of sightseeing. We stayed 3 nights and had a wonderful experience at the Watergate!
