With endless shopping, a scenic waterfront, and decadent places to dine, Georgetown is a tourist haven. Here are the most luxurious places to reserve for the ultimate stay-cation. Unfortunately, zero reasonably priced hotels exist in the area, but there is always Airbnb
The Rosewood sits on the scenic Georgetown canal, defined by its green vegetation, quaint colonial vibes, and the occasional tugboat. At the Rosewood, history meats sophistication, and designers sought to showcase the progression and past of American architecture. The hotel strives for historical authenticity, utilizing reclaimed items such as antique wood flooring sourced from an 18th century European chateau. The walls are worthy of a museum gallery – dawned with original works from abstract expressionists. There’s even a rooftop infinity pool, but don’t start those reservations just yet; the absolute cheapest room is $550/night.
Boutique Hotel, Hotel
Once a 20th century industrial factory, the building was converted into a luxury, modern hotel – but it’s brick smokestack remains. The feature makes it the most historical and distinctive hotel in the Georgetown skyline. The hotel’s interior, including its 86 guest rooms, employs earthy tones and plenty of burgundy to create a warm aroma that blends well with the brick exterior. A stay at the Ritz Carlton comes with a myriad of complimentary perks – sweeping views of the waterfront, a couple’s massage, and Yoga Brunch. The boutique hotel also provides an accompanying spa and sauna.
The Graham Georgetown
Named after Alexander Graham Bell, who moved to Georgetown in 1879, The Graham strives for innovative style that channels the spirit of invention and man’s curiosity – with a luxurious twist. The hotel’s best feature is its grandiose rooftop bar, dubbed the Observatory; star-gaze in their lounge chairs, while smoking a complimentary cigar, and sip a martini from the bar. The hotel offers 57 guest rooms and suites – the average room costs $300 per night.
Modern and sleek, but less pretentious than other hotels. This quaint inn is locally owned and operated, giving the dig’s tasteful, luxurious aesthetic a sense of intimacy. Reception offers complimentary craft beers and local wines – if you prefer an IPA to a martini, but still appreciate life’s finer things, The Avery is more your style. The minimalistic decor strives for bold contrast and clean lines, giving a natural ambiance. The fifteen rooms range from $300 – $700/night. Some come equipped with a private patio that opens to a backyard garden.
Operating for over 50 years, the Georgetown Inn boasts it’s “full of history and nostalgic glamour.” It was the first new hotel built in Georgetown after a century of decay, arriving during the neighborhood’s revitalization. The luxury European-style digs are classic, timeless, and strikingly presidential. With 96 rooms, it’s the largest hotel in the area.
