Go residential and international at this elegant stay on a quiet street just off of DC’s tony embassy row
For a taste of Old World Europe and the 21st-century sensibilities required by a diplomat, check out this jewel on a residential street in the embassy district. Renovated in 2009, The Normandy is basic but elegant as embodied in the tasteful chocolate brown-accented library lounge. All the better for enjoying free end-of-day drinks, cheese and sweets by the fireplace with an international crowd.
Bed and Bath
Views of tree-lined Wyoming Avenue make up for slightly diminutive digs; their petiteness is accentuated by the relatively enormous bathrooms, kitted out with marble tiling and such ultra-21st-century perks as undersink lights and showers with spa heads and seats. Rooms mix old and new with a masculine palette of chocolate, beige and baby blue. First edition replicas of Charles Dickens and decades of Life magazine grace nightstands, country print wall paper complements decor that includes antique strawberry velvet slipper chairs and boxy silver lamps.
An exceptional free wine and cheese hour for guests is served nightly. The atmosphere is cozy and usually international — the proximity to the world’s embassies means a lot of diplomatic guests and languages at the nightly spirits, sweets, crackers and fromage spread by the fireplace in the cozy library common area. In the morning, continental breakfast is served for a fee in the same environs.
