In the lobby, white leather lounge chairs hang from the ceiling, and most of the 193 mod rooms have polished oval bathtubs and tall windows with views downtown. The rooftop pool and lounge bar ("Above D.C." aka ADC) are the hotel's best assets. Sig among an eclectic mix of revelers—everyone from senators to coeds—relaxing by outdoor fireplaces. Order an herbal infusions, such as the vodka-and-Keemun “mar-tea-ni.”
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
