On the heels of Capella Washington D.C.’s opening, another luxury boutique property has opened in the same neighborhood among cool shops and three cupcake bakeries that have cultivated a national buzz (DC Cupcakes, Sprinkles, and Baked and Wired).
The Graham Georgetown is a 57-room hotel touting perks like a rooftop bar and a restaurant. In each room are Bvlgari White Tea bath amenities to pamper yourself with in the white-marble and mosaic-tiled bathrooms, along with Liddell Ireland bed linens and modern audio/video systems that can easily pipe in your favorite movies or tunes. WiFi is available at no cost in each room, too. Rooms, representing eight categories, including a few suites, are spread across seven floors, providing a little bit of privacy and quiet after a hectic day of sightseeing in the nation’s capital.
At A.G.B., which opens in May, breakfast and dinner menus have a farm-to-table philosophy and include casual eats like soups, salads, and sandwiches. Craft cocktails, including an ode to Frank Sinatra called “Old Blue Eyes;” fitting as he often stayed at the hotel under its previous name and ownership (Hotel Monticello), are the focus at The Observatory, a rooftop bar boasting panoramic views of classic capital attractions like the Kennedy Center and the Washington Monument. On rainy or cool days, a lower-level bar ensures libations are still in order.
