Beneath the shadow of the nation’s Capitol and among the bustling sidewalks, brick clad, and marble landmarks of Washington DC‘s Capitol Hill neighborhood, sits a lively and iconic tourist hub that has welcomed the District’s sightseers for decades.
The Liaison Capitol Hill Hotel at 415 New Jersey Ave NW – one of the city’s most distinctive boutique hotels – boasts 343 rooms throughout it’s 10 floors of high class hospitality. Just minutes away from the city’s most historic, cultural, and political hot spots (The U.S. Capitol, Library of Congress, Newsuem, National Gallery of Art, U.S. Botanical Garden, and the infamous transportation hub, Union Station) this destination of sophistication offers spectacular views of one of the most prestigious zip codes in the country. Politico’s, business phonemes, and party goers alike rub elbows at this prestigious power hub that offers 17,000 feet of flexible meeting space.
An additional amenity that should not go unmentioned is the giant terry cloth robe hanging in the bathroom closet, which we absolutely took advantage of during our stay! (Pro Tip #1 – while there may only be one robe hanging in each closet, guests can kindly call down to the front desk and request one for each additional guest in their room at no extra charge. They will be delivered in no time).
After lounging in our fluffy robes while snacking on a fruit plate and artisanal cheese board (which included five different kinds of seasonal cheeses with jams and assorted breads and crackers) compliments of The Liaison, we decided to venture out of our tranquil sanctuary to experience the rest of what this had to offer.
While many elements such as design and decor set this hotel giant apart from the rest, The Liaison is best known for its hospitable staff and the largest rooftop pool in the entire city.
No meal is complete without a proper dessert, and Art and Soul did not disappoint. As part of their seasonal menu, we enjoyed a gigantic slice of salted caramel brownie cheesecake. While the overall texture of this dreamy and decadent dish is rich and flavorful, we should warn readers foods with very prevalent salty tastes are not your thing, you should probably go with another option on the menu (such as the Grand Marnier Crème Brûlée with caramelized sugar crust, Art and Soul’s Signature Baby Cakes, or a flavor of one of their assorted icecreams or sorbets) of which all are perfect summer sweets.
