Rosewood Resorts, a prestigious brand of distinctive hotels founded in 1979 by oil heiress Caroline Rose Hunt (daughter of oil tycoon H. L. Hunt) has added a new property to its expanding portfolio. The company, which is famous for impeccable service and details, was just hired to manage the Capella Washington, D.C. and renaming it as Rosewood Washington D.C. The charming property sits perched alongside the C&O Canal in the heart of Georgetown, one of D.C.’s most historic, renowned and picturesque neighborhoods. It’s an ideal spot for business or leisure travels with 49 smartly-decorated rooms and suites plus a number of dining and drinking venues such as the Grill Room overlooking the canal, the adjoining Rye Bar and a private rooftop lounge providing an indoor/outdoor pool and panoramic views over the Capital and the iconic Washington Monument. “Rosewood Washington, D.C. is an exciting addition to Rosewood’s collection of properties and strengthens our presence in North America,” says Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group. “The hotel draws on the capital’s rich culture and history to express Rosewood’s trademark philosophy of ‘A Sense of Place’ in innovative and memorable ways.”
