Four Seasons Hotel Washington, D.C.

Georgetown’s grande dame
For more than a quarter century, Four Seasons Hotel Washington, D.C. has reigned supreme over Georgetown. In fact, it was the brand’s first to open in the United States.

The 222-room grand dame has welcomed nearly every dignitary, visiting A-lister and VIP to pass through the nation’s capital during its tenure.

And did we mention its buzzy restaurant, Bourbon Steak, or its fitness club where you just might be on a treadmill next to a congressman? Yes, there’s much to love about the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • The Washington, D.C., hotel boasts more than 1,650 pieces of art, 400 of which are blue-chip and commissioned just for the Georgetown hotel.
  • It’s easy to make yourself at home in the hotel’s subterranean spa, which specializes in results-oriented treatments with a pampering vibe from product names like Amala and Kate Somerville.
  • The property is located on famed Pennsylvania Avenue in the Georgetown neighborhood, about a mile from the White House and with easy access to all of Washington D.C.
  • The staff at the property is professional and thoughtful. They also know the area well and can help plan a sightseeing itinerary during your stay.
Things to Know
  • In the lobby, you’ll find incredible works of art like a rare Warhol, a sculpture by Colombian artist Fernando Botero and the gorgeous Bilbao, a work by abstract expressionist Helen Frankenthaler. Art lovers can ask the Les Clefs d’Or concierge staff to arrange a hotel tour or private tours of nearby galleries as well.
  • Plan to eat at here. The D.C. hotel is home to Michael Mina’s Bourbon Steak restaurant, which offers an elevated steakhouse experience with a blend of Asian and Latin influences.
  • You will have no trouble keeping up a fitness routine while at the Washington, D.C. hotel. The gym spans three floors and has a fully equipped locker room, too.
  • Car service is available to guests traveling around D.C.; the concierge can make arrangements for you.
The Rooms
  • The luxury hotel is generously sized — even standard accommodations start at 385 square feet and come with amenities like deep soaking tubs, new Ferragamo bath amenities and espresso makers by La Piccola.
  • Fresh from a top-to-bottom renovation, guest rooms now feature a soothing palette of neutrals with pops of red that evoke your own chic pied-à-terre in the city.
  • Our favorite touches from the updated rooms: Bedside tables complete with charging stations, in-room desks that double as dining tables, and hidden nods to D.C.’s signature cherry blossoms found throughout the refreshed spaces, everywhere from the wallpaper to the drapery.
  • Your room’s décor depends on whether you’re in the east or west wing. West wing rooms have a more contemporary look with modern artwork, while east wing rooms have an elegant Parisian décor with baroque-patterned chairs and drapes in the contrasting colors of purple and gray.
  • In the bathrooms, dual sinks and a well-lit makeup mirror make getting ready with a partner a breeze; there are also separate deep soaking tubs, marble walk-in showers and toilet areas. The space is impeccably clean and calming.
The Restaurants
  • For power players, having “breakfast in Georgetown” is understood to be at Seasons, where you’ll nosh on items like egg white frittatas and lemon ricotta pancakes with fresh berries.
  • By evening, enjoy handcrafted cocktails (ask for something on the seasonal list) and butter-poached dry-aged steaks at Bourbon Steak, a restaurant by star chef Michael Mina.
  • The lounge at Bourbon Steak, with its popular outdoor patio, also dishes out unique options, such as lobster corn dogs, and one of the city’s best burgers.
  • Need something casual? Eno Wine Bar, located just steps from the Five-Star hotel, offers unique wine-and-chocolate pairings, as well as small plates.
