Spa Pendry at Pendry Washington DC – The Wharf

A tucked-away urban refuge

Leave the bustle of The Wharf — D.C.’s popular mile-long waterfront playground — behind when you step into Spa Pendry at Pendry Washington DC – The Wharf.

The petite urban spa sets a soothing scene with white marble, creamy hues, light wood and trickling water features. Don a robe, sit in an armchair in the relaxation lounge with fruit-infused water or a steaming cup of Taylors of Harrogate tea and the spa’s own addictive butterscotch granola nut mix, and peruse the wellness books on offer.

When your therapist is ready, you’ll head into one of five treatment rooms (including a couples suite) for some pampering. Whether you choose a facial or a body treatment, expect indulgent ingredients (cashmere oil), innovative offerings (The Athlete combines deep-tissue massage, CBD oils and Theragun vibrational therapy) and an expert therapist who will make sure your service will keep you blissfully floating on clouds, even after you’ve returned to the throngs outside.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Choose from a well-curated selection of facials, including the Platinum HydraFacial, a deep-cleaning cult favorite, and the Firm + Lift, which applies gua sha sculpting techniques (part of traditional Chinese medicine) and lotions full of stem cells and peptides to stimulate collagen production and plump your skin.
  • For a head-to-toe treat, opt for the Harbor + Stone Massage. Your body will get buffed with a salt scrub and tensions will melt away with a rhythmic massage using heated black basalt stones and hydrating cashmere oil.
  • Before your appointment, carve out time to loosen your muscles in the white-tiled eucalyptus steam room. Each locker room offers one.
  • The attentive therapists make a spa visit special. They will expertly home in on your problem areas and work to alleviate them, bring you tea or water after your service and may even take time to provide suggestions you can practice at home.
  • Stop by the spa shop to pick up some self-care products like airy, fragrant body soufflé from Lola's Apothecary; Pirette’s coconut oil scrub; a Ground sleep ritual set with pillow spray and sleep body oil; and Cause + Medic CBD cream.

Things to Know

  • The locker room carries everything you need to get ready: a changing room, rainfall showers and vanities stocked with deodorant, hairspray, brushes, razors, hair dryers and more.
  • Only hotel guests can access the alfresco pool and hot tub overlooking the river and the gym (where you’ll find Technogym and Tonal machines, Peloton bikes, free weights, yoga gear and a Theragun station). But if you book a 90-minute spa treatment, you will receive a day pass for both.
  • You must be 16 or older to book a treatment at the D.C. spa.
