With the departure of Capella from the banks of the C&O Canal in Georgetown, luxury travelers need not fret. Rosewood Hotel has picked up the smoldering torch and is lighting the way to what some say is the best boutique hotel in Washington, DC.
Rosewood is one block removed from vibrant M Streets shops and restaurants, plus close to the waterfront for a quiet, scenic location. Guests are warmly greeted both outside the front door and immediately after entering, then escorted to reception. One of 49 sumptuous guest rooms and suites awaits your choice. Select from three types of room per your whim. The superior room is their entry level lodging and pampers guests with a king-sized bed, separate sitting area, views of the famous C&O Canal, and a glass-enclosed floor-to-ceiling rainfall shower. Hardwood floors, soft colors, and plenty of space make you feel like you are visiting a rich uncle’s estate. The fully stocked mini-bar, Illy espresso bar, Pratesi linens and 24 hour room service are all for your indulgence. Deluxe and Georgetown rooms round out the two remaining room choices before moving up to the suites.
A suite view
Suites at the Rosewood offer unmatched luxury in Georgetown. A king-size bed will engulf you in a pleasant night’s rest after a day out-and-about in the capital city. The Rosewood Suite comes with a walk-in closet, separate and spacious living area, adding ample room to move about during your stay. The modern design blends well with classic American features making this a fitting choice for lodging in historic Georgetown. Take in the view of the C&O Canal from your elevated vantage point and consider a stroll or bike ride on its banks later. An Executive, as well as a Presidential Suite, round out the three suite choices.
A famous chef and somellier
Dining at Rosewood is also at the highest level of quality and luxury. The Grill Room is where you will find star chef Frank Ruta. Chef Ruta has a long and storied history in DC’s culinary scene; including years as executive sous chef at the White House during the Carter, Reagan, and Bush presidencies. He also has won top awards from the James Beard Foundation plus Food & Wine Magazine. Enjoy the best of locally sourced seasonal cuisine with chef Ruta’s Italian roots spicing up menu items. If the weather is nice, grab a table overlooking the C&O Canal providing a European-like alfresco dining experience. For a starter try the grilled Mediterranean octopus with Yukon gold potato and quinoa salad and crispy prosciutto. Follow your appetizer with a marinated and grilled loin of lamb or Ora King Salmon. Pair your courses with wines selected by the Rosewood’s master sommelier Keith Goldston for a winning combination. For a change of scenery consider after dinner drinks in the Rye Bar or your room.
Over the top
After eating and drinking well the night before, Rosewood has a top-shelf workout facility on the top floor, if a bit of exercise is needed. Take in the sweeping views as you go through your workout then follow with a dip in the infinity pool with the same spectacular view. Next to the workout facility is one of the best rooftop bars in DC. Order the finest whiskey or wine to complement the view of the Kennedy Center, Potomac River, Washington Monument and the city skyline in outdoor splendor. Don’t worry if a room or suite at Rosewood is beyond your budget. The rooftop bar and lounge is affordable, and open to the public at 4 p.m. daily for a million dollar view of the city. Come grab a drink and snack to see how luxury was meant to be. The rooftop bar and lounge may be reserved for up to 100 guests for entertaining your entourage for an evening to remember.
