In collaboration with Destination DC and its 2014 marketing campaign drawn from the National Portrait Gallery’s “American Cool” exhibit, Four Seasons Hotel Washington, D.C. announces DC Cool, featuring five unique and specially created offerings inspired by the cool city starting January 1, 2014.
“In what feels like an international city, it’s great to focus locally and be inspired by the nation’s capital so we can bring more of DC to our guests,” says Dirk Burghartz, Four Seasons Hotel Washington, D.C. General Manager, of the destination ranked #1 for culture in America by Travel + Leisure Magazine. The hotel is pleased to announce new guest amenities as well as special dishes, products, and experiences that have been developed by Seasons restaurant, M29 LIFESTYLE, and The Spa.
To make travelling less stressful for single, female guests, Four Seasons Hotel Washington introduces the new Gal on the Go amenity. With fitness equipment and a guide to the area’s best yoga, barre, and pilates studios, guests never have to miss a work-out. To enjoy in transit or while relaxing, guests receive copies of magazines like Vogue, InStyle, Harper’s Bazaar, Women’s Fitness, and Travel + Leisure as well as newspapers such as The Wall Street Journal and Financial Times. Rooms are stocked with nail kits, professional hair dryers, straightening irons, hair spray and serum, and bobby pins as well as bath salts, loofahs and eye masks to help guests travel light and unwind. Luxury kits from Amala also include organic face cream, cleansing milk, and serum without harsh irritants or chemicals. For women on the move, a pack of beauty wipes and lint roller can be tucked into a purse or briefcase for a meeting or heading out to dinner. To complete the experience, BOURBON STEAK mixologists Duane Sylvestre and Jamie MacBain have designed a going out guide featuring the best places to experience the city after dark. This amenity is available to all single female travelers booking published rate guest rooms and suites.
Followers and fans of Four Seasons Hotel Washington, DC on social media can also receive a special DC inspired amenity by mentioning “DC Cool” at time of booking or check-in. Adults will receive a DC Cool sweet treat of seasonally inspired chocolates, cookies and house made macarons, while kids will enjoy Washington Monument and Capitol building sugar cookies to decorate.
Seasons, popular for its power breakfast and Sunday Brunch adds a new dish to the menu, the DC Hash, a district inspired new wave breakfast dish. The half-smoke, perhaps Washington’s only native dish is elevated in this new selection served daily. The grilled half-smoke is butterflied and served with a hash brown patty, beef chili, poached eggs, and local cheddar cheese sauce, a luxurious take on one of the city’s staples. The DC Hash is available for breakfast daily at Seasons restaurant for USD 19.00.
In the new year, M29 LIFESTYLE will feature a DC Cool wall with rotating seasonal displays. To keep cool, with cherry blossom inspired spring items and a summer sun and swim series, be cool, with graduation gifts and gadgets, keep your cool, with new apothecary offerings, too cool for school, with back to school ideas, and a cool kind of holiday with a unique gift guide. In addition to seasonal offerings, the boutique will offer exclusive DC inspired products from Stella Blue, Walker, LOLO, Eva & Oli’s, Beau Idealism, Sola, Atsuyo, and Kusmi.
The Spa at Four Seasons:
The Spa offers a Cold Stone Massage, a spin on the classic Hot Stone Massage. This treatment is great for soothing sports injuries and provides relief from migraines and headaches by reducing inflammation of blood vessels. The cool white marble stones provide deep relaxation and decrease swelling of over-worked or injured muscles and scar tissue while improving circulation. The stones reduce soreness and draw heat from the body to boost energy levels. The only luxury spa in the city to offer this treatment, the 20 minute Cold Stone therapy can be added to any massage treatment for an additional USD 70.00.
Additional Offerings that are also Cool:
Lastly, the hotel recognizes its existing cool amenities and those from BOURBON STEAK and The Spa. Families traveling to Washington can book the Capital City Family Package where youngsters will enjoy camping in the city. Rooms come equipped with a tent, fudge cake “burgers”, sugar dough “fries,” and s’mores on a stick. Young guests are also treated to kid’s bathrobes and slippers and to stay entertained the hotel also provides Wii consoles, National Geographic Kids magazines, and an on-site scavenger hunt with a prize at the end. Families of four will enjoy daily breakfast and a picnic lunch to take on the go while exploring the nation’s capital. Back at the hotel families will also receive complimentary internet and parking as well as a movie to watch around the campfire. Room rates starting at USD 645.00.
The new ice program is from the bar at BOURBON STEAK. Ice can do more than keep a drink cold and these 10 unique blends enhance a drink rather than dilute it. In a variety of shapes, sizes, and infusions, cocktails are subtly altered with each sip. Ordering a cocktail on the rocks has never been quite like this. With such creative cocktails at the bar, the coasters are no different. No cheesy pickup lines here, some of BOURBON STEAK’s coasters read, “I couldn’t help noticing you, noticing me, noticing you,” and just in time for the holidays, “Can I have your picture so I can show Santa what I want for Christmas?” With more than 7 ways to start a conversation, there’s never a dull moment at BOURBON STEAK’s bar.
The Spa at Four Seasons offers Night Spa, a private after hours treatment with exclusive use of the pool level. With the package guests will receive two monogrammed bathrobes, a bouquet of flowers, two 80-minute massages, a personalized Michael Mina dining experience with a bottle of wine or champagne and the option to add a night in one of our luxurious Premier Rooms or Suites. Couples may book Night Spa for USD 1,800.00 with the option to add a night in a Premier Room for USD 500.00 (or upgrade to a suite for an additional USD 300.00).
Together, these offerings allow guests to experience more of the city through a variety of luxurious and cool interpretations. For reservations please call (202)944-9151 or visit http://www.fourseasons.com/washington/ for more information.
