Very good wellness hotel. Great location. Fantastic service. Great pool.

Set along the banks of the Potomac River, The Watergate Hotel is a luxurious urban resort with mid-century modern architecture. Following an extensive $200 million renovation that included the construction of a 7,000-square-foot ballroom, the hotel offers a choice location within a historically significant structure, steeped in service for business and leisure travelers.

The renovated guest rooms and suites have artful, mid-century modern styling with sleek wood furnishings, large windows, work desks, 48-inch flat-screen TVs, and Nespresso coffee makers. The spa-inspired marble bathrooms have custom La Bottega amenities, plush robes, and lighted makeup vanities.

For dining, the Kingbird offers Potomac River views and a contemporary dining room and lounge. The Next Whisky Bar features a copper wall leading guests from the lobby to an illuminated wall of 2,500 whisky bottles. While the Top of the Gate is a rooftop bar and lounge with 360-degree views of the Kennedy Center, Washington Monument, and DC skyline.

The 12,500-square-foot Argentta Spa and Wellness center includes the hotel's original indoor pool, plus a state-of-the-art gym, and barre studio. There are a variety of treatments available featuring luxury skin and body care lines, along with a unisex steam room and nail salon.
