Capella is our usual hotel accommodation in Singapore (Sentosa Island) and obviously we opt for Capella Washington during our visit to Washington in April 2014. The verdict - we even wanted to extend our stay (originally booked for 3 nights) on our last morning however we had already pre-booked our train tickets and accommodation back to NYC. The hospitality of their staff was fantastic from the doormen/drivers to PAs (personal assistants who multi-task), we felt very pampered by them. Capella hospitality is simply the best!
Hubby and I loved Washington much more than the Big Apple NYC, particularly we were so happy to have chosen our accommodation in Georgetown, away from the usual 5-star hotels in the heart of the city, though Georgetown is only mere 10-15 mins drive away. By the way, this is a hotel for travellers who don't mind using the cab as there is no nearby train station in this area. We found Georgetown very quaint area, it is sooooo charming, Capella as the best location. We could simply do lovely walks along the river next to the hotel and nice photo shoots in the surrounding areas (one should consider wedding photos here!). They have nice gourmet supermarket just round the corner, you can find anything Japanese or Italian, and the famous Georgetown cupcakes (which we didnt get to try because the queue was super long every day!). Capella is also walking distance to the harbourside where there are heaps of cafe/restaurants to choose from. JF Kennedy's former place of residence is also walking distance from the hotel, oh man, the houses are most charming, we even wish we could retire in Georgetown (have to earn/save our millions first)! Listen - Georgetown is a must and if you dont mind splashing on accommodation, Capella in Georgetown is so worth it! Trust me!! Thank you Capella for a very memorable stay - we shall be back!
