Iconic mid-century getaway.

Overlooking the Potomac River and Georgetown, The Watergate Hotel is a chic historic hub for exploring downtown Washington DC. The hotel’s façade boasts avant-garde architecture and retro-chic staff uniforms.

Insider Tip

Be sure to partake in the historic Scandal Room Tour, which includes Room 214 that was used in the 1972 Watergate break-in.

Where You’re Staying

Rooms and suites are decorated with a mid-century modern aesthetic, including leather furnishings, wood accents, and stylish workspaces. Select suites include a separate living area and two step-out balconies with city and river views.

Where to Dine

Kingbird offers fine food and drink in a stylish dining room with outdoor terrace. Savor a drink at The Next Whisky Bar or reserve a private, seasonal Winter Igloo for a unique experience. Enjoy a cocktail at Top of the Gate, a rooftop lounge with panoramic views.

Where to Relax

Swim in the indoor lap pool or unwind in the spa's sauna and steam room. Argentta Spa offers facials, massages, and body treatments, including the Argentta Silver Moon Salt Scrub, an Icelandic moonflower body treatment that gently exfoliates with a blend of Dead Sea salt and rich aloe butter.

What To Do

Explore historic landmarks, such as the Georgetown Neighborhood or The National Mall. Picnic along the banks of the Potomac. Visit the Arts District and enjoy live theater, street performers, and murals. Attend a performance at the Kennedy Center, which is within walking distance of the hotel.
