Got VIPs headed to DC? This is a good suite to book for them: With bullet-resistant glass, a private entrance and a closed-captioned security system, the Royal Suite is reportedly the largest at the Four Seasons Hotel Washington, DC—and it's probably one of the safest, too.
And while the safety features are great, we're impressed by the swank side: The floor is made of limestone and is covered with custom-designed wool-and-silk-blend rugs. The entry foyer has plenty of Swarovski crystal fixtures, macassar ebony wood inlaid with mother-of-pearl and a scalloped pattern of stone mosaic.
The dining room accommodates 10 guests and is equipped with a Bang & Olufsen LCD for meetings overlooking the private terrace. A kitchen pantry with Sub-Zero refrigerator and separate service entrance is adjacent.
The living spaces include four distinct seating areas (good for families or breakout groups). We're partial to the library, though, which has a glass fireplace and custom cabinets displaying a collection of art books. The media area, meanwhile, has Bang & Olufsen systems, including a 60-inch LCD television.
The bedroom has his-and-hers walk-in closets, a ladies’ dressing and sitting area, a private office and an exercise room with an elliptical trainer, a treadmill, yoga mats, weights, medicine balls and two Bang & Olufsen LCD screens.
Coolest of all: A landscaped 1,000-square-foot terrace has seating areas with lounge chairs, a fire pit and a dining table for 10 overlooking Georgetown.
Other available services include a personal trainer, chef, security officer, administrative assistant or massage therapist.
The Royal Suite can be converted into a three-bedroom suite of 5,287 square feet or—for maximum privacy, security and flexibility—the entire wing can be closed off to include eight bedrooms (8,825 square feet) ranging from Capitol Suites to Premier doubles and kings.
