Why We Love This Hotel

  • Luxe boutique property in historic building 
  • Complimentary s’mores roasted in the lounge’s fireplace nightly
  • One block from Georgetown Waterfront and AMC movie theater
  • Spa features sauna, steam room and fitness center


Occupying a turn-of-the-century incinerator building between the Potomac River and C&O Canal, The Ritz-Carlton, Georgetown retains much of the edifice’s original industrial architecture including its red-brick facade, black ironwork and a 130-foot smokestack. The rough exterior encases a modern interior focused on guests’ comfort and convenience.

With only 86 rooms, the hotel is one of the few Ritz-Carlton boutique properties, its exclusivity making it a favorite of visiting celebrities and privacy-seeking couples. A third of the rooms are suites and all are decorated with clean, contemporary furnishings, floor-to-ceiling windows behind gold curtains and Frette linens. Some rooms have views of the Potomac and suites include deluxe features like fireplaces, separate seating areas and formal dining rooms.

The Boutique Spa is home to the only private couples’ massage room in Washington. Guests have 24-hour access to the gym adjacent to the spa and can also attend outdoor yoga classes in the Urban Garden on Saturday mornings before savoring a gourmet brunch on the terrace. 

For all other meals, guests can dine on upscale American cuisine at Degrees or gather in the intimate Living Room lounge for light meals, cocktails and complimentary butler-passed s’mores around its wood-burning fireplace. After dinner, guests can hit the town or watch a movie in the 14-theater AMC located within the hotel complex.
