The St. Regis Washington, D.C Review
The hand-painted ceiling in the lobby of this 1926 Italian Renaissance–style landmark sets the stage for the exquisite attention to detail that awaits in the handsome guest rooms—Pratesi linens line the beds, LCD TVs are recessed behind the bathroom mirrors, and personal butlers carry BlackBerrys, so while you're out you can email requests like "Please pack my bags." Just two blocks from the White House, the St. Regis attracts a formal business and diplomatic crowd, but families are welcome, too; children are issued F.A.O. Schwarz teddy bears and kid-size robes. The hotel's restaurant by Alain Ducasse, Adour, is one of the best in town, and the English-style bar, BlackBook, serves classic dishes and cocktails.
At this elegant hotel in the nation's capitol, service reigns supreme. Personalized butlers pack and unpack luggage, arrange restaurant reservations and spa treatments, and make each guest feel like they're one of the many dignitaries or heads of state who frequent the property. Other amenities include 24-hour room service and access to the complimentary 24-hour fitness room.
