Review: Conrad Washington DC

Conrad Washington bear

Trip from Europe to the US via Asia flying Qatar Airways Qsuite & Cathay Pacific First Class

In 2014, I did two round-the-world trips, flying Asiana Airlines, Lufthansa and British Airways first class using miles. This year, I´m doing it again although it will be a bit different. I will fly from Europe to the US via Asia and will take the same route on the way back so it won´t really be a complete round-the-world tour. I´m flying Qatar Airways business class and Cathay Pacific first class (thanks to the mistake fare) so I´m really looking forward to a trip full of jet lag but nevertheless fun!

Check-in

The reception is located on the 3rd floor and we were helped by Jeremy, a young guy who was very enthusiastic and glad. He informed us of the usual things like wifi, breakfast timings etc. and moments later we were on our way to the room on the 7th floor.

Estuary, Breakfast Restaurant






Mike and I each had 25USD dining credit (for a total of 50USD) so we decided to have some pastry basket, inland omelette, pancakes and a cup of coffee. The total bill was around 64USD excluding gratuity so I had to pay extra during check-out.

CONCLUSION

Having stayed previously at other Conrad hotels, I was expecting the same high level of service, beautiful rooms and modern facilities at the Conrad Washington, and I have to say I was not disappointed. Our stay was made even more memorable by Jeremy who was just so willing to be of help, and is truly a gem of the hotel. The room we got was spacious, the TV was huge and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was also great, just like the one we had in Conrad New York 😉 Lastly, the view from the rooftop bar is just awesome. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay in the Conrad Washington and would gladly recommend it to everyone.
