The Ritz-Carlton Georgetown, Washington, D.C.
Georgetown’s Grande Dame
What it is
An 86-room hideaway of choice for D.C.’s most powerful visitors, with a guest list that reads like it was dreamt up by the Nobel Peace Prize committee.
What it isn't
Stuffy. Expect all the charms of Georgetown life with none of D.C.'s inconveniences.
What we think
Among certain political circles, The Ritz-Carlton Georgetown is nothing short of a legend, which is evident in every corner of the place—a former factory turned into a loft-like wonder. Even the most basic rooms here are fitted with finishes that would pamper a president, including limestone and slate bathrooms and views of the Potomac (ask for a 450-square-foot Wellness Room to get the spa experience behind closed doors: think vitamin C aromatherapy showerheads, a Germ Guard air purifier, and a sound machine for ultra-deep, uninterruptible sleep). The newly revamped spa is a destination for local staycations, thanks to its blissfully CNN-free relaxation room and treatments like the DC District Clear Perfection Facial. Sometimes, self care requires tuning the whole world out—so you can tune in to you.
You're here because
You prefer to experience D.C.’s many charms as a local might—a local with access to some of the city’s best masseurs and chefs at his or her fingertips.
You’ve had your share of incendiary cocktails in this town, but tonight, as the sunset bathes the Potomac in dreamy pink hues, you can’t remember a single one. All that matters is your company and your next sip of Where There’s Smoke, There’s Fire—with Ilegal mezcal, Chacho Aquardiente, agave and grapefruit bitters, it tastes as summer-fresh as you feel.
