About
Description
Built in 1961 and reopened in June 2016, following an extensive $150 million renovation, the hotel exemplifies Washington DC past and present. From the flowing avant-garde architecture, built to compliment ...More the mighty Potomac, to the elegant redesign of the interior of the hotel, The Watergate is a true DC landmark. An American icon, located just steps away from Georgetown and centrally located to all of DC's attractions. The Watergate Hotel's 336 guest rooms and suites define luxury with lavish finishes, sleek furniture and lush bedding, all artfully chosen with the guest in mind. The Next Whisky Bar is a lounge filled with a selection of the world's finest spirits. The Whisky Garden features private, heated winter igloos. The Top of the Gate, our rooftop bar, has unrivaled 360-degree panoramic views. During the winter months, visit our rooftop skating rink and bar. Kingbird Restaurant features fine dining and The Bar at Kingbird is the perfect location for a cocktail or casual meal. Less

I have done the walk many times, but it takes a while to learn the ropes because the streets are a bit confusing. If you have a phone with GPS, I recommend using directions the first time, There is no shuttle.
