Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has opened their first hotel in Washington, DC today, taking over the management of the former Capella, Washington, D.C. and rebranding the hotel Rosewood Washington, D.C..
The 49-room property is located in the city’s posh Georgetown neighborhood along the C&O Canal. The prime address is convenient for those traveling on either leisure or business with many of the city’s cultural attractions, high-end stores and vibrant restaurants easily accessible from the hotel.
“Rosewood Washington, D.C. is an exciting addition to Rosewood’s collection of properties and strengthens our presence in North America,” says Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group. “The hotel draws on the capital’s rich culture and history to express Rosewood’s trademark philosophy of ‘A Sense of Place’ in innovative and memorable ways.”
We’ve long been fans of this neighborhood hotel, located just steps from other prime properties like Four Seasons and Ritz-Carlton, but distinctly different in decor and feel.
The Rosewood property boasts contemporary art and comfortable furnishings as well as the state-of-the-art technology and amenities required by today’s travelers. It is also the city’s newest true “luxury” hotel, having opened just three years ago, in 2013.
The hotel currently has a number of dining options including seasonal dining at the Grill Room which overlooks the C&O Canal. The adjoining Rye Bar has a cozy atmosphere and serves one of the city’s finest selections of rare rye whiskeys and craft cocktails. A private rooftop lounge features an indoor/outdoor pool and panoramic views over America’s capital city including the iconic Washington Monument.
We look forward to seeing the changes as Rosewood’s management gets settled in.
