Though there are 216 rooms at Park Hyatt Washington, it still feels like a welcoming boutique hotel. The West End property was given a new look in 2006 by famed interior designer Tony Chi, so the rooms have an updated style to them. The sleek accommodations are spacious (rooms start at 336 square feet) and space-conscious (in-room shelving, wall-mounted TVs) at the same time. In each and every guest room, you’ll find a carved wooden apple — a nod to the famous apple pie served in the signature restaurant, Blue Duck Tavern. Larger rooms sport swivel TVs, which allows you to catch your favorite show in the sitting area, then move to the bedroom by simply rotating the bookcase-mounted TV without having to remember which channel you were watching.
The décor is sophisticated, but not so much that you can’t relax. The butter-yellow armchairs and light wood furniture are welcoming. The crisp white bed linens are irresistible. And if you need to get some work done at the Washington, D.C. hotel, you’ll be pleased to find a lovely oversized desk in every guest room.
