It’s official: Washington, D.C.’s busy summer travel season is upon us. But don’t let that dissuade you from visiting the nation’s capital -- especially since one of its finest hotels, the Capella Washington, D.C., Georgetown, is offering your third night free.In other words, through August 31, you'll only have to pay for two nights when you book three. Rates at the five-star hotel start from $495 for a superior king room during the summer months, but the complimentary night drops the average rate significantly. Let’s take a look:
We found availability for the lowest rate for check-ins on these Fridays: June 12, 19, and 26; July 10, 17, and 24; and August 7 and 14. Add another $495 for Saturday and the total comes out to $990 -- averaging out to just $330 per night. For check-ins on other days of the week, regular rates generally start from $545 or $595 per night, coming out to around $363 or $397 post-discount. Just watch out for early June and select nights the rest of the summer, when starting rates spike up to $645-$745.
No matter which of the 49 guestrooms and 12 suites you book, all guests enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi and access to a refreshment center stocked with gratis soft drinks, coffee, espresso, and bottled water. The smart splurge is worth curling up in bed with Pratesi linens or unwinding in the room's soaking tub and rainshower.
Onsite amenities include the Grill Room restaurant, two bars (including one rooftop) and a lounge, indoor-outdoor infinity pool, and the services of a personal assistant who can help arrange all aspects of your trip. Exclusive to hotel guests is the use of the Capella Living Room, a sophisticated hangout space decorated with neutral furnishings and an oversized fireplace accented by marbled Italian onyx.
