Why We Love It
-Located just a few steps away from The White House, this luxury hotel frequently caters to premier guests including politicians, dignitaries, socialites and other public figures who are visiting Washington DC. -Its stunning interior is reminiscent of 18th century Russia, with ornate detailing and fire red decor. -The St. Regis strategically placed Decanter's bar adjacent to the lobby. This makes hosting private events and socializing a breeze with a serious dose of Washingtonian style added. -Expensive, but worth it for the city views and people watching alone.
