East-meets-west modernism. The sleek and spare lobby sets the scene with etched glass panels echoing the city’s signature cherry blossoms. Behind the gleaming wood and marble check-in area, straps of burlap form an abstract take on an American flag. And the restaurant mixes rustic touches—farm tables, nubby fabrics—with clean-lined, spare architecture.
Bed & Bath
The 216 rooms feel spa-like with muted color schemes and clean-lined modern furniture. But there are also throwback touches of Americana, like authentic folk art, Shaker chairs and wooden blinds. And when it’s time for a rest, the oversize baths and custom Le Labo bath amenities will certainly do the trick.
Don’t miss a memorable meal or a signature seasonal cocktail at the on-site Blue Duck Tavern. The restaurant is a popular spot for locals — the President and First Lady even celebrated their anniversary here. The hotel is also home to a tea cellar that has more than 50 varieties, including rare blends from around the world. For more active types, the hotel’s loaner bicycles are great for a spin along the nearby waterfront; and the fitness center (open 24 hours) is head and shoulders above a standard hotel gym, with huge windows that flood the room with natural light. But the staff deserves top billing here. They speak more than 20 languages, offer free rides in an Audi A8 L and effortlessly anticipate your needs without seeming fawning.
In the Area
The West End location — across the bridge from Georgetown and south of Dupont Circle — makes for a serene stay. Walk across the bridge to Georgetown’s M Street to stroll through Cusp, Neiman Marcus’s trendy sister store; and check out the edgy stilettos and wedges at Hu’s Shoes. Then refuel with a red velvet treat at Georgetown Cupcake, the star store of the TLC show DC Cupcakes. You can’t leave DC without paying tribute to its famed memorials. We’d suggest joining a Bike the Sites sunset tour where guides let you in on some of the city’s secrets and legends.
How to Get There
We stayed here last weekend for a family gathering (a military interment at Quantico National Cemetery). We had reserved a junior suite but don’t recommend room 831. It has no views, very dark, only one sink that is located so as to make getting to your clothing (no closet, just open hangers & shelves in the bathroom) or the toilet difficult if someone is brushing their teeth. Frustrating enough so that we actually left a day early.
Hotel was beautiful and in a great location just a short walk to georgetown for food and shopping and in between zoo and the national mall pool and hot tub were clean staff was very helpful they were great with my 3 year old son
I had a very enjoyable stay here on a short trip to DC.
My room was not quite ready when I arrived. I was offered another room while I waited, but instead opted to take a walk around the city. I returned to a significantly upgraded room, which was beyond my expectations even as a top tier World of Hyatt member and certainly appreciated.
The rooms show a bit of wear and tear in places, but are still quite comfortable. I was happy to see turndown service offered without having to request it and I enjoyed the amenities provided. I also ate dinner and breakfast at the Blue Duck Tavern, which was quite good.
All-in-all, I was comfortable and felt the service being provided was top-notch. I will be happy to return in the future.
