European-inspired luxury, fine dining and larger-than-life guestrooms, Georgetown’s Capella Washington DC is right at home in its well-heeled neighborhood.
Style Marble and mahogany
Setting Canal-side Georgetown
Why this week? It finally feels like summer in the States – so get thee to a rooftop. Only a select few have access to Capella’s guest-only rooftop bar. This enviable perch offers panoramic views of the US Capitol building and monuments down the Potomac River, and would be a spectacular spot for the upcoming Fourth of July fireworks show. Should you need your own fire lit, the hotel is also offering three nights for the price of two when you book an Executive or Capella Suite from now until September 11, 2014 – just for Mr & Mrs Smith members.
Our favourite bits Not only is the rooftop bar and heated rooftop pool just for guests (and their friends), but the ground floor Living Room gives you yet another cosy spot to lounge about without having to worry about the public nabbing your fireside armchair.
Mr & Mrs Smith say… ‘Strolling in with my dog, I was welcomed with wide smiles and addressed by name. Sure, I had a reservation, and perhaps I was recognized because I have a career in the public eye and once lived and worked down the street. But this was not the fake ‘it’s soooo nice to see you let’s have drinks’ thing that happens in an industry town. Something else was happening here. I felt like a regular.’
