We had a wonderful stay at Capella in DC:
*My personal "assistant" at the hotel called me weeks before to ask what beverages I wanted in my complimentary in-room refrigerator. She fulfilled my request down to providing lemon slices for my husband's water, which I requested. The call also asked me if I needed anything special, including what newspapers we read in the morning.
*We were greeted by the efficient, pleasant hostess who shook our hand and told us how pleased she was to meet us. She allowed us an early check-in and personally escorted us to our room and showed us around.
*We were upgraded to a Georgetown Suite, which was on a corner and overlooked the canal. The room was fabulous. There were room controls on each side of the bed to open/close the drapery, put on the reading light, have mood lighting, indicate "do not disturb" or just to turn off the lights. The bathroom had a ceiling shower head and Acqua Di Parma toiletries, along with an interesting round soaking tub. They give you a little toiletry kit with shaving cream, a razor, shower cap, file and other amenities. You were welcomed to the room with several macarons served on sliced almonds. The furniture was beautiful, although we don't drink coffee, there was a fancy espresso/coffee maker in the room. Of course our requested beverages were there. We were asked if we needed anything pressed or if we needed our shoes shined. There was a flat screen TV with DirectTV.
*The hostess sat in the "Capella Living Room" which was a quiet oasis when patrons were in the bar or restaurant. They had M&Ms, tea and soft drinks for the hotel guests. They had a scrabble board, a chess set, sofas and chairs in the room. After dinner, we were able to order our drinks there. During breakfast, they provided croissants, yogurt, coffee and tea.
*The Rye bar was lovely in the afternoon, where we had some drinks and some bar food. The cheese tray was delightful, the bread was hot and fresh and the ham and cheese croquettes were very good as well. I had the most delicious Sour Apple Martini there - they don't carry the Pucker schnapps, so they muddled apples and the result was terrific. My husband's sidecar was very good.
*Dinner at The Grill Room was very good and I will review that in that section.
*After dinner we went up to see the pool and gym. The pool was so pretty - the water was warm, but not warm enough to go in with the cold weather (at least for me). The gym was small, but had state-of-the-art equipment.
*When we awoke, our paper was hanging in a bag outside of our door and breakfast at The Grill Room was good as well.
Of course, you are paying for these amenities and this service, and it is well worth it. This hotel must be lovely during the spring and with the warmer weather - we plan to return for another special occasion.
