The Ritz-Carlton Georgetown

3100 South St. NW, Washington, District of Columbia, 20037, USA

Once an incinerator dating from the 1920s, this building still topped with a smokestack might seem the most unlikely of places for upscale lodgings, but settle into one of the large and chicly designed guest rooms (upper-level suites overlook the river) and you'll agree the concept works. The fire theme unites the intimate spaces, a complete departure from the chain's more traditional style. A large fireplace warms the lobby, s'mores are served in the Living Room at sunset every evening, the Degrees Bistro has a fiery-red color scheme, and you can practically smell the embers burning as you pass through the exposed-brick hallways.
