Waldorf Astoria Spa Washington DC

A spa oasis just blocks from the White House

For a luxurious experience in the heart of the city, look no further than Waldorf Astoria Spa Washington DC. Catering to a discreet crowd of well-heeled politicos, locals and hotel guests alike, the intimate six-room spa, with a private entrance on the hotel’s lower level, boasts top-notch therapists, an impressive Himalayan salt room with wooden benches and a tranquil lounge that will make you want to curl up and stay a while.

Your spa day begins with immediate pampering: a flute of champagne and a plush tan robe. The dim lighting and candles set a calming mood as you walk along the white marble floor to the shimmery curtained private lounger nooks or through the archway to the seats flanking the water cascading from the ceiling. It’s just the way to ease into a hot stone massage or another indulgent service.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • The spa is the only one in the city to have facials from luxury Barcelona-based skincare brand Natura Bissé, but you can also book other treatments to get red-carpet ready, such as the excellent HydraFacial.
  • The D.C. spa resides in the historic Old Post Office building, which boasts an impressive atrium-style lobby, making it the perfect spot for people-watching and grabbing high tea or a light bite at the bar before or after your treatment.
  • The spa offers an array of seasonal packages, such as springtime treatments specific to D.C.’s famous cherry blossoms or fall services that incorporate pumpkin and cranberries.
  • We’re partial to the selection of curated rituals that are guided to a specific intention, like balance or rest. Rituals begin with a beverage and then move onto massage with aromatherapy, LED light or even CBD oil, all designed to achieve desired outcomes.
  • Spend time in the glowing pink-brick salt room. Salt therapy is said to improve respiratory function, as well as soothe and clear the mind.
Things to Know

  • Decorated in soothing neutral tones and boasting a rain-style water feature, the spa’s relaxation area offers pod-like nooks for you to relax pre- or post-treatment, complete with reading light to keep up with the latest Beltway gossip.
  • Take a seat in the eucalyptus steam room or grab a workout in the fitness center, carrying a full suite of the latest Technogym equipment.
  • Pre-request the signature couple’s suite, where you’ll enjoy a private rain shower, relaxation area and the Himalayan salt room, plus an extra 30 minutes post-treatment to sip champagne and nosh on chocolate-covered strawberries.
