The Watergate Hotel

The Watergate Hotel, a property of unforgettable legacy in Washington, has reopened its doors after nearly ten years. Redesigned and revamped, the iconic hotel is now more enticing than ever. With its design originally conceptualized by Luigi Moretti in 1961 to resemble a sail on the Potomac, its curving lines have become a distinctive feature of the city's skyline. Visible from numerous vantage points such as the Kennedy Center, Georgetown, and even from the sky when approaching Reagan National Airport, the Watergate Hotel stands as an architectural marvel.

The Watergate Hotel, a property of unforgettable legacy in Washington, has reopened its doors after nearly ten years. Redesigned and revamped, the iconic hotel is now more enticing than ever. With its design originally conceptualized by Luigi Moretti in 1961 to resemble a sail on the Potomac, its curving lines have become a distinctive feature of the city's skyline. Visible from numerous vantage points such as the Kennedy Center, Georgetown, and even from the sky when approaching Reagan National Airport, the Watergate Hotel stands as an architectural marvel.

In its new iteration, the property fuses the retro charm of the '60s with a sleek, modern aesthetic aimed at appealing to millennial travelers. The redesign artfully preserves some of the space's signature elements like the grand, curving staircase and indoor pool, while reimagining others, like the custom metal front desk.

The Watergate Hotel offers an unforgettable gastronomic experience with three diverse dining options that are popular among guests and locals alike. When the weather permits, beginning your evening with a cocktail at Top of the Gate, the hotel's expansive rooftop, is recommended. This spot offers breathtaking 360-degree views of the Potomac River, the Capitol Building, and the Washington Monument.

The Argentta Spa, with its seven treatment rooms spread across 10,000 square feet, is set to become one of the city’s top wellness retreats. The spa’s soothing grays and silver tones complement its Latin name, which translates to "silver". The Argentta Spa offers a range of amenities including a unisex steam room, a 49.2-foot indoor saltwater pool and whirlpool, a barre studio, and a spacious gym equipped with TechnoGym equipment.

From the intricate, Gucci gray marble on the lobby walls to the custom LED lightscape on the ceiling designed to mimic the night sky, the Watergate Hotel provides a luxurious and modern experience that feels simultaneously timeless.

For the best view, guests are advised to request a room overlooking the river. One of the most unique spots in the hotel is nestled within The Next Whisky Bar. Resembling a nautilus shell, this intimate space is perfect for a cozy experience right in the heart of the action.

The hotel boasts 336 modern guest rooms, half of which have large, curving balconies offering some of Washington’s most picturesque views. The rooms, decorated in a calming color scheme of whites, grays, and dark woods with accents of rich red, feature oversized windows that allow ample natural light.

The bathrooms, complete with floor-to-ceiling Zebrano marble, custom La Bottega amenities, and diffusers emitting the hotel’s signature Red Flower Oakwood scent, add a touch of opulence. Guests will also find custom umbrellas designed by Mad Men's Janie Bryant in the closets.

For dining, guests can visit Kingbird, the hotel's all-day American restaurant. Here, you can enjoy dishes like the young chicken and liege waffle, a unique combination of spinach and pancetta waffle topped with chicken, roasted foie gras, and peach agrodolce.

Top of the Gate, envisioned by Chef Michael Santoro, offers more than just cocktails. Serving up Asian street food and grilled items from one of the city’s only robata grills, it is a culinary hotspot. During the colder months, The Next Whisky Bar becomes the ideal place to enjoy a warm drink. Guests can relax in custom-designed Ron Arad red chairs and choose from an extensive list of whiskies, bourbons, and ryes.

With a host of amenities including 24-hour room service, babysitting services, a bar, gym, indoor pool, meeting rooms, pet-friendly options, restaurants, and a spa, The Watergate Hotel promises an unforgettable stay.
