luxe - The Capella Washington DC
Written by Oryx
Every hotel in Washington DC hopes to offer the ideal formula of discretion and luxury to attract that ever-important dignitary, but few have perfected this fine art as well as the Capella Georgetown.
Impressive when you consider its tender age – this spring marks its one-year anniversary. What really sets the Capella apart is its unrelenting attention to guests’ every need, from dates, baklawa, and prayer mats for Middle Eastern customers to dedicated personal assistants who begin to plan guests’ trips even before they arrive. The hotel’s expert concierge will think nothing of arranging a walk-on role for guests’ children in a ballet at the nearby Kennedy Center, or exclusive private tours of the estates of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.
The hotel features a well-edited selection of elegantly designed rooms and suites to choose from, many of them as spacious as a Georgetown apartment. These range from a 120m2 presidential suite that can be combined with an adjacent deluxe room (Room 505 has views over the C&O Canal), or a cosy Capella suite with living room, to a 39m2 Superior Room (for the best view, ask for Room 510).
The hotel’s Grill Room serves up seasonal fare and signature dishes such as the 40-day dry-aged bone-in rib-eye and an array of seasonal seafood. Meanwhile, the chic Living Room, devoted only to hotel guests, serves up a daily complimentary continental breakfast for all to enjoy.

One of the most requested fashionistas in Washington DC, April Yvonne, the hotel’s resident stylist, will be more than happy to arrange style consultations and after-hours private shopping excursions at the likes of Saks, Neimen Marcus, Dior, and Burberry. For guests who prefer to be styled in the privacy of their own suites, Yvonne will happily bring them a carefully curated collection of wardrobe options.
