Four Seasons Hotel Washington, D.C. is located in a brick building in the heart of Georgetown, nestled between historic row homes, and just steps away from great shopping and restaurants. The Five-Star hotel (the only one in town) opened its doors more than three decades ago at 2800 Pennsylvania Ave., on the corner of 28th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue. The luxury hotel was the first Four Seasons in the U.S. and one of the brand’s flagship properties. Fully refreshed before the Obama inauguration in 2009, the property has played host to celebrities, diplomats, heads of state and presidents alike, offering six presidential suites and one $15,000 per night Royal Suite, as well as Michael Mina’s famed BOURBON STEAK restaurant.
Other hotels are more convenient if you’re in town to sightsee. The White House is about 12 blocks away, about a 30-minute walk or a 10-minute cab ride. The nearest Metro stop is Foggy Bottom, which is about a half mile from the hotel. It depends on what you’re looking for. You can easily get to anywhere you need to go on D.C.’s fast and efficient Metro system, and Georgetown’s charming cobblestone streets and great shopping and nightlife can’t be beat.
