- I think it’s safe to say that wherever you go in the world if you need a luxury hotel that allows pets The Ritz~Carlton is a pretty safe bet. This is one of two Ritz~Carlton reviews I will be doing, this one is for the Georgetown hotel in Washington D.C. I stayed here probably around 2006. I was on a press tour for the movie DUCK with director Nic Bettauer and actor Phillip Baker Hall and these were our wonderful accommodations while we stayed in the D.C. are
The reception we got at The Ritz~Carlton was exceptional. I was traveling with a duck. Well, actually two ducks and when I walked into my room I found a dog bed at the end of my bed with a sign with my ducks name on it, a book on ducks, and a bathtub filled with water and about twenty rubber ducks floating around in it! I would say this goes above and beyond your average welcome!
I think they have a soft spot for ducks. Every spring they have a a visitor, a female duck. She has chosen a planter outside the hotel to nest in and have her babies for six years in a row! You can read more about it here:
The staff were more than helpful, I had a lot of equipment and bags and at no time did I feel uncomfortable staying here with my odd travel companions. I loved the area, plenty to do and see, loved the shops and getting to go to my favorite deli Dean and DeLuca which is close to the hotel.
As always, if you travel with your pet – alert the hotel ahead of time and you will be greeted with dog beds, dog bones and a water bowl. And a wonderful stay.
