Set on upscale Embassy Row, among historic homes and elegant embassies, this 231-room property has a big personality, from the bold design in the guest rooms (vibrant color schemes in teal, tangerine and sunflower-yellow; subtly retro furnishings; and rich textures) to the spiffy new event spaces and state-of-the-art fitness center. The hotel aims to draw DC’s movers and shakers with an on-trend lobby that doubles as a social hub and a new ingredient-driven restaurant helmed by locavore chef Rob Yealu, Station Kitchen & Cocktails, which changes from craft coffee shop by day to cocktail bar at night. But perhaps the most buzz-worthy aspect of the reimagining is the rooftop pool and bar. With its swank private cabanas, artisanal cocktails and sweeping views of DC and Virginia, this perch one of the city’s hottest tickets in town.
In the Area
Go on a crawl of DC’s incredible museum scene; many are either free or reasonably priced. Start just a few blocks from the hotel with the Phillips Collection, which houses a magnificent collection of mostly 20th-century art, from masters like Vincent van Gogh and Georgia O’Keeffe. Next hit the National Geographic Museum on 17th Street for exhibitions, films and concerts celebrating the wonders of our world. If you’re in Dupont Circle on a Sunday, refuel at the Farmer’s Market, where many of the town’s best chefs shop, before catching the Metro four stops to the National Mall. Get your photo ops, then spend the rest of the day at the Smithsonian Institution, a collection of 19 world class attractions including the National Zoological Park and the Air and Space Museum.
How to Get There
The service great the first night! The check in girl was amazing!! However... my stay was not pleasant what so ever. I had blood and urine stains on my bed sheets and was told by the front desk “we will have houskeeeping investigate it” when I asked for the night to be refunded. The rooms are poorly taken car of... the ceiling right above me looked like it was caving in and had been poorly repaired.
- No minibar (not even a fridge!!)
- I never any doorman...
- no rooms service...(God help you if you ask for wine/ cocktail glasses to be sent up to your room- you’ll be asked to go to the bar and ask...)
Do yourself a favor... if you are looking for a REAL 4 star hotel that doesn’t charge a RESORT FEE... go to the Darcy!!
Great location. Nice bar and breakfast spot. Great valet staff. Clean hotel with comfortable beds. Had a few problems with the plumbing. Toilet bubbles up water and the sink drained slow. Phone didn’t work. All minor issues as the room was very nice. Unfortunately even though we reported these issues every day of our stay none were ever fixed.
Great value in DC area. Very nice hotel. Incredible service. Bell staff and check in experience was great. Also, the bed was incredibly comfortable. And cannot beat the location. Easy access to all dc has to offer.
I have stayed here twice now. Nice rooms, good food bar to grab breakfast and nothing to complain about. I did not dine there other than grabbing breakfast. Location is good to walk to many things. You wont be disappointed.
Rooftop pool wasn't open, nor was the rooftop bar. Staff didn't know the hours or that it wasn't even opened, and a "Deluxe City View" room didn't even have a fridge or a city view. Go to the Watergate.
