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 hotel’s sunny, glossy pics and then my winter shots below:
You won’t want to leave…
The lap pool is on the small side, but has some pretty incredible views and a fire strip!
This is the winter set up, with a canopy overhead. Still pretty awesome..
Sweeping views of DC everywhere you look.
