Fairmont Washington DCWashington, District of Columbia
Utter the name Fairmont and luxury and service come to mind. It is no different when staying at Fairmont Washington DC, located in the capital's fashionable West End and adjacent to historic Georgetown and its lively after-dark scene. Check in to a spacious guest room or suite, or request a room on the ninth floor, which is earmarked for Fairmont Gold, a private area where guests are cocooned in lavish surroundings and privy to superb service around the clock. Retreat to Juniper, the hotel's signature restaurant, for a culinary adventure of regional cuisine served in a relaxed and inviting setting. The Colonnade, a city favorite, presents a fabulous buffet complete with free-flowing Taittinger champagne with a mix of politicos and dignitaries.
Augmenting all the pleasures that come with a stay at Fairmont Washington DC is the array of wonderful attractions that is found just beyond the lobby doors. Consider all the magical monuments awaiting your arrival, the war memorials dedicated to the nation's brave men and women, the museums that cater to every interest and experience, the restaurants that range from chatty pubs to Michelin-star cuisine, the fabulous shopping opportunities. Georgetown is just a short jaunt away as is DuPont Circle - a district that may be small by most standards, but is packed with an abundance of history. At the end of the day, make your way home and take a soak in your deep tub, uncorking a bottle of fine wine and enjoying the city lights from afar.
