Catch a Glimpse of Obama from the W Washington DC

- Juliana Scaligine,


If you’re looking for a true Washingtonion experience, the W Washington, DC fits the bill perfectly.  Formerly the Hotel Washington, DC, this once historic hotel turned ultra –modern is literally right across from the White House and minutes away from Capitol Hill.

Designed to embody Washington DC’s most powerful suits, the hotel’s underlying theme, is pinstripes and black lace.  Showcased in every detail, the decor was skillfully executed by Interior Designer, Dianna Wong.

It was my last night in DC, and the W was the perfect spot to spend a Friday evening.  Their rooftop bar, POV faces directly across from the Whitehouse.  I heard if the timing is right, you could even catch a glimpse of Obama, getting out of his helicopter.

w-washington-viewPOV is THE place to see and be seen in DC. There are line-ups around the corner but luckily for hotel guests you just present your room key and off you go!  For the winter season, they are featuring enticing hot cocktails.  Peanut Buttered Rum, Hot Not Chocolate, Mulled Pear Cider, and American Cream & Coffee.  Yum!Mulled Pear Cider-w-washington

Their restaurant J& G Steakhouse, by famed Chef Jean Georges Vongerichten features a selection of premium meats, fresh fish, and the highest quality raw items from the East and West coasts.

I had the Seared Halibut with a Scallion-Chili Sauce Basil and Celery, it was heaven on a plate.

The name of this hotel’s game?  Indulgence. And indulge I did.
