Tastefully decorated marble-and-tile bathrooms at The St. Regis Washington, D.C. are a bit on the small side. However, they offer a walk-in tiled shower (only eight have a tub/shower combination) with wonderful water pressure, a handheld addition and excellent heat control — we could make our water as hot or as cool as we desired, a rarity in city hotels where the highest temperature is still only lukewarm. The bathroom’s best feature is the in-mirror television, which you can watch as you primp. Towels are white and fluffy and the in-room robes are pristinely clean cotton. Added amenities at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel such as shaving and dental kits are available upon request, and all bath products are created by upscale French line Laboratoire Remède. We particularly liked the lotion, a sweet-smelling blend of orange and apricot scents with moisturizing rosemary, lavender and thyme oil extracts.
