One of the capital’s newest hotels (it opened March 2013) is also its most decadently luxurious. Personal assistants are at your service 24/7. The hotel has a resident stylist, who is available to take you on after-hours shopping sprees at Saks Fifth Avenue and other upscale retailers, or will shop for you. Would you like to surprise your tiny dancer with a walk-on role in The Washington Ballet’s performance of The Nutcracker, or a chance to sit in on rehearsal? Done. And then there are the practical pluses, like the hotel’s flexible check-in/checkout policy; the complimentary continental breakfast available daily in the hotel’s Living Room; and the complimentary stock of juice, bottled water, coffee, and sodas on hand in each guest room. The Capella sits alongside the C&O Canal, and some of its 49 rooms overlook the canal, as do the bar and the seasonal outdoor terrace: very nice. Rooms range in size from 359 to 504 square feet; suites go up from there. Guest room furnishings make fashion statements with their mix of contemporary accents, dark hardwood floors, and pewter lamps. A rooftop lounge includes a fitness center, indoor/outdoor relaxation pool, and views of Georgetown, the Kennedy Center, a bit of the Potomac River, and the Washington Monument. The Capella’s Rye Bar is already a hot spot, while the Grill Room restaurant is gaining in acclaim.
