Sneak Peek: The Amazing Guest-only Rooftop at the Capella DC


The hotel scene in DC is ….um, to be totally honest, pretty unexciting, so I was curious to check out the buzzed-about new Capella DC when I was in town  last month.  The location is enviable–the converted warehouse space is set on a quiet street in Georgetown overlooking the C&O Canal.  Reason to book is the expansive guest-only roofdeck with a small infinity pool. You can take a stargazing class with a rep from the University of Maryland’s Astronomy department, swim in the heated outdoor pool year round, get a rooftop massage in a cabana, or just grab a cocktail and a bite and enjoy the sweeping views of DC. Definitely one of the best hotel spots in the city.

The lap pool is on the small side, but has some pretty incredible views and a fire strip!
