The Rosewood Washington D.C. is a trendy little bolthole that boasts a top Georgetown location – one of the capital’s more affluent areas – as well as true design hotel looks, a top Wolfgang Puck restaurant and rooftop swimming pool that makes for a highlight of any stay.
Step inside and be greeted by a striking central lobby that sees bespoke artworks inspired by the city’s ages, a mix of contemporary and antique armchairs atop dark wood and marble flooring plus, perhaps more importantly, the impossibly attentive reception staff and concierge that await.
The Rosewood Washington D.C. really does start as it means to go on, as guestrooms and suites are just as on-trend with their subtle fusion of design elements mixing influences from old and new, light and airy thanks to tall ceilings and large windows, with no shortage of mod-cons but a real sense of history and place too.
And, as if to really prove the point, nowhere can this all be seen to better effect than up on the hotel’s rooftop bar and pool area. Gourmet bites, top-end cocktails and impressive Washington views can be savoured either on the terrace and lounge area or while taking a dip in an irresistible infinity pool that overlooks the Rosewood’s Georgetown locale.
Elsewhere, there’s a gym and handful of helpful child-friendly extras such as babysitting and games, if travelling to Washington as a family.
However, this exclusive 49-room property actually feels like a grown-up’s retreat at heart, not just for the rooftop bar and terrace but in-room spa services too, gourmet cuisine, top location and interior design that begs to be fully appreciated.
Guestrooms and suites at the Rosewood Washington D.C. feel like a high-end private apartment, particularly in the larger room options though even entry-level accommodation is still 359sq ft in size, coming with exactly the same standard of décor, artworks, lots of light and luxe bathrooms too. Each also has a variety of neighbourhood views depending on its position in the building, as well as a seating area, smart-room controls, king-size or twin beds, an espresso machine, minibar, HDTV, marble bathrooms and in most, a deep-soak tub and rain shower.
CUT is a Wolfgang Puck-designed restaurant at the Rosewood Washington, D.C., so you just know that you’re in for a treat. With a passion for big flavours, seasonal produce and cutting-edge presentation, there is a signature style to everything on the restaurant’s changeable menu, though also a notably localised urban feel to it all too, whether that’s the dishes served or look of the restaurant itself.
The Rosewood’s Rooftop Bar and Lounge, CUT Above needs little introduction, as there are few better places to enjoy views over Washington, a lip-smacking cocktail, gourmet small plates and the option of either a luxe infinity pool or comfy rattan armchair to enjoy it all from, than here.
Activities and Entertainment
This is a family-friendly hotel, meaning children’s activities, babysitting and colouring books can be arranged by Rosewood’s concierge team, while adults have the rooftop pool, bar and gym to enjoy. Away from the hotel, however, you have easy access to some of Washington’s most interesting areas thanks to its prime Georgetown location. Nearby are the Washington Monument, harbour and Georgetown Waterfront Park, the shopping outlets, bars and restaurants of Wisconsin Avenue and M Street, U.S. Capitol, Kennedy Centre, sprawling Smithsonian Museums and plenty of top galleries and monuments too.
For such a relatively intimate hotel, the Rosewood Washington, D.C. boasts a surprising list of services and available extras. The only place to start is of course that rooftop swimming pool: it starts with marble steps indoors and takes you out onto a sundeck outside for those all-important city views. There is also a well-equipped gym here, plus in-room massage and spa services, child-friendly additions to the room amenities and restaurant menus, as well as a superb concierge team that are truly noteworthy.
