Capella Georgetown to Open in January 2013

Capella Georgetown in Washington D.C.

While Trump is busy transforming the D.C.’s Old Post Office Pavilion, Capella is putting the finishing touches on a plush new hotel in Georgetown. The brainchild of former Ritz-Carlton President Horst Schulze, the Capella brand has made waves for its personalized service at properties like Capella Pedregal in Cabo San Lucas. Originally slated to open in December 2012, the Capella Georgetown has pushed back its debut until January 2013.

A former office building located near the historic C & O Canal will morph into a 48-room hotel that’s sure to give the established D.C. frontrunners a run for their money. Think spa, canal-facing restaurant, and a rooftop bar and pool that’s bound to attract the city’s “it” crowd. There will be lots of Capella signatures- like personal assistants for every guest. The hotel will be located at 1050 31st Street in Georgetown. Stay tuned for more details.
