The smallest of the Ritz-Carlton chain’s four D.C.-area properties, The Ritz-Carlton Georgetown, Washington, D.C. is conveniently situated at 3100 South Street (a quiet block from the waterfront and two from trendy M Street shopping). The 86-room boutique hotel is housed in the former Georgetown Incinerator, the property takes its cues from its former resident’s fire past, including Degrees Bistro, Degrees bar and the intimate Chimney Stack, now a private event space. From exposed brick (portions of which are original), a spacious loft-style lobby and a deep black and red color scheme, the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel is by far the most boutique feeling of the Ritz-Carlton properties in the area, as well as one of the most popular with locals — natives often enjoy the free lobby Wi-Fi or kick back in Degrees for a cocktail. The rooms are spacious, some offering water views, and feature amenities such as Asprey bath products and plush Ritz-Carlton beds. Overall, this property is ideal for leisure travelers or for business travelers looking to be close to their Georgetown destinations.
