WASHINGTON, D.C.—Capella Hotels and Resorts celebrated the unveiling of the Capella Washington D.C., Georgetown, the latest elegant addition to the capital city. Guests who attended the opening were part of a special ribbon-cutting ceremony at the hotel, which included welcome remarks from Horst Schulze, chairman and CEO of Capella Hotels and Resorts and Bruce F. Bradley of Castleton Hotel Partners I, the hotel owners.
“Washington D.C. is a remarkable destination with incredible experiences – rich in culture and also a vibrant dining, retail and entertainment scene. With the Capella Washington D.C., Georgetown, our intention is to make all that D.C. offers easily and effortlessly accessible to our guests,” said Schulze.
The interior design for the intimate 49-room hotel was conceptualized by Peter Silling of Peter Silling & Associates Hotel Interior Design Ltd. in collaboration with Capella and Castleton Hotel Partners I. The overall design of the hotel is inspired by the history of American architecture and Silling brought the hotel to life by depicting the evolution of this genre through the use of original contemporary art and furniture design blended with the more classic feel of the brownstone building’s industrial exterior. Pewter and gold tones are carried throughout the hotel and into the individually designed guest rooms, which have been crafted to resemble private residences.
Guests of the new property will have access to attentive Capella Personal Assistants around-the-clock; complimentary refreshment center; complimentary laundry pressing service of up to five pieces; complimentary Wi-Fi and innovative programming to ensure guests are fully immersed in D.C. culture and way of life. Special guest services include private after-hours shopping in the city’s most exclusive stores and access to Washington’s newest and hottest attractions.
