The Four Seasons Hotel unveiled its 4,000-square-foot royal suite — the biggest in D.C. — just in time for Inauguration Day, and it has steadily accommodated royalty and celebrities in its first few months of existence.
It is the Georgetown hotel’s sixth suite, and its amenities include a wooden private patio, gym, library, Bang & Olufsen systems and bullet-resistant glass.
Designed by Anderson/Miller Ltd., the suite is accented by wool and silk blend rugs, rich woods and iridescent shell detail.
The foyer welcomes guests with a Swarovski crystal ceiling shining down on sparkling stone mosaic tiling. The dining room, which fits 10, sits adjacent to a 1,000 square-foot outdoor patio with a fire pit that overlooks Georgetown.
Complimentary perks at the $12,500-per-night suite include car service and a personalized shopper. While the 222-room hotel remains mum about guest lists, the first to stay during Inauguration — reportedly Oprah Winfrey — did a “happy dance” when she entered the suite, said a spokeswoman. The suite is currently booked for the first half of June with many tentative bookings for the coming months, she added.
For guests traveling with entourages, the entire wing the suite lives in can be closed off to include eight bedrooms totalling nearly 9,000 square feet.
