Rosewood Washington DC was ranked #20 for best hotels in the world

Washington, D.C., October 6, 2020 – WINSTANLEY ARCHITECTS & PLANNERS is pleased to announce that Rosewood Washington DC was ranked #20 for best hotels in the world and #2 in Washington DC by Condé Nast Traveler.

When Rosewood opened right on Georgetown’s C&O Canal in 2013, it quickly became one of the hottest places to stay in the city. The tony space offers a truly intimate feel—there are just forty-nine rooms and suites and six townhouses—that will make you feel as though you are staying at the well-appointed home of a friend. You are greeted by a personal assistant in the wood- and marble-clad lobby before being escorted to a spacious, elegant room. Each have hints of Art Deco influence, and lots of luxurious little touches: complimentary non-alcoholic beverages in the minibar, freshly cut flowers, and Acqua di Parma toiletries waiting for you beside a dramatic marble bathtub.

Condé Nast Traveler is a luxury and lifestyle travel magazine published by Condé Nast.  The magazine has won 25 National Magazine Awards.  The magazine is published 8 times a year, featuring current trends in hospitality and travel.

WINSTANLEY ARCHITECTS & PLANNERS was also selected to work with Jacques Garcia to renovate the public spaces, introducing Wolfgang Puck’s CUT DC at the street level. The new 120 – seat restaurant features an open kitchen, a wine storage wall showcasing 3,500 bottles, a central bar, a 14 – seat private dining room & outdoor seating. 2,500 SF are dedicated to the kitchen and food/beverage storage areas. All new kitchen and bar equipment was installed meeting Energy Star, Green & Energy efficiencies.
