THE WATERGATE HOTEL, WASHINGTON DC

A SLEEK URBAN RESORT FOR DISCERNING TRAVELLERS

Just a mile from the White House on the banks of the Potomac River, The Watergate’s modernist, curving towers provide a striking contrast to Washington’s stately neoclassical structures.

At the centre of one of the biggest political scandals in American history, the legendary Watergate Hotel first opened its doors back in 1967 when it quickly established itself as a favorite amongst Washington elite and Hollywood royalty. The property has since transformed itself into a sleek urban resort for discerning travellers, perfectly poised for experiencing all the city has to offer with the John F. Kennedy Center just a stone’s throw away.

From the striking copper lobby to the flowing, avant-garde architecture, the hotel skilfully merges classic elegance with bold, modern designs. The rooms and suites are lavishly appointed with sleek mid-century furniture and floor-to-ceiling marble bathrooms, with private balconies offering exquisite river views. Head to the Argenta Spa for innovative, tailored treatments, or the stylish Kingbird restaurant for fine Mediterranean cuisine. The Next Whisky Bar, with its illuminated wall of 2,500 whisky bottles, is said to have the best whisky menu in all of DC, but for 360-degree city views, The Top of the Gate rooftop deck can’t be beat.
