Took a weekend trip to DC to see the Cherry Blossoms. I decided to use points to stay at the Ritz Carlton as every hotel in the city was expensive. I was thinking about staying at Georgetown but the options were better in the DC location.
Overall a good stay, with minor issues. The hotel’s gym is contracted out and you have to pay for it unless they comp it or you get a club level room. The hotel did grant me gym access, but I did not go as dinner and drinks kept getting in the way of me working out.
Cookies in the lobby… They were so good I had like 10… The hotel keeps to the DC theme.
The public areas are classic yet modern. Everything was nice.
Great art work through out the hotel… This is me after dinner and a few drinks.
Life imitates art at the elevator bank lobby.
The lobby lounge is beautiful… and I have many drinks there during my stay.
Some very limited hard to find stuff… I try some but not all…
The lounge is made of a few rooms that open up as needed.
There is a unique menu for each President.
Prices range from normal to $$$$$.
The present menu is….
Now to the room, there was only a suite available when trying to book with points so I went for it. The entry is large…
The powder room is right off the entry.
The living area also has a breakfast style table.
The living room… There is also a small balcony off the bedroom, but not sure any one would ever use it unless they were smokers.
The bedroom passed the double doors had lots of space.
On to the main bathroom.
The basics. Marble… Two sinks… Shower… and Tub.
Looking back to the room.
Looking toward the dining area. Closeup of the living area. The room is spacious but the wow factor is missing. This is great on points but would prefer a basic room if I was not on points.
One good thing about hotels like this is their Concierge. We wanted to go to Piccolo in Georgetown, so the hotel set it up so we can get a table at a time they were booked solid.
One of the best risotto I have had…
Looking back at the restaurant on the way back to the hotel for another drink.
