Set in central Georgetown, along the historic C&O Canal, Rosewood Washington D.C. is perfectly positioned for exploring the highlights of the American capital.
The hotel boasts 49 rooms, including 12 suites, all of which are light and spacious, featuring king-size beds and separate living areas. Each room is complete with a beautiful bathroom and floor-to-ceiling rainfall shower, while some feature the added luxury of a limestone soaking tub. All accommodations offer enchanting views of the canal below, the striking buildings of Georgetown or the picturesque inner courtyard. Decorated using a soft neutral palate with accents of gold, these rooms provide guests with both grand and relaxing retreats in the nation's bustling capital.
Overlooking the canal, the Grill Room is the Rosewood's signature restaurant, with chef Frank Ruta at the helm. Here, guests can enjoy fine locally sourced seasonal cuisine with an emphasis on artisanal meat cuts and supremely fresh seafood. Next door is the hotel's Rye Bar, created to honour those famous whiskey producers George Washington and Thomas Jefferson and stocking a fine selection of whiskeys, with bartenders who also specialise in classic cocktails. Meanwhile, the Rooftop Bar has extensive views across the city and the Potomac River, so guests can admire their superb setting whilst sipping fine wines and savouring light snacks. The roof is also home to the Rosewood's indoor-outdoor infinity pool.
There is plenty to explore whilst staying at Rosewood Washington D.C., with the city's grand landmarks, numerous museums and iconic memorials located nearby. Head out to explore the Georgetown Waterfront Park, the riverside Kennedy Centre or the Georgetown university building. Rosewood Washington D.C. arranges personalised tours of the city, including private walking tours through the area's top cultural attractions. For those looking to venture further afield, trips into the surrounding countryside can be arranged, including visits to the region's verdant vineyards, or an excursion across the Potomac River to discover George Washington's historic Mount Vernon estate.
Why we love it
Set amidst the hum of the capital city, Rosewood is close to some of Washington's swankiest bars and restaurants, but the hotel's Grill Room, Rye Bar and Rooftop Bar are also among the best in the city.
