Hotel Fact Sheet

Overview:

Behind its handsome red-brick facade, Rosewood Washington, D.C. delivers a heightened sense of elegance, intimacy and sophistication; a feeling of being in a most extraordinary and welcoming home. This refined environment is the creation of Peter Silling of Peter Silling & Associates Hotel Interior Design Ltd. Inspired by the history of American architecture, Silling brought the hotel to life by depicting the evolution of this genre. Original contemporary art and furniture are incorporated in juxtaposition to the classic feel of the brownstone building’s industrial exterior. The sophisticated, yet warm and welcoming, design aesthetic reflects both the hotel’s location in Washington, D.C.’s most historic and exclusive neighborhood and an insistence on incorporating only the very finest quality in the hotel’s décor, materials, furnishings and art.

Location:

The property is situated alongside the C&O Canal in the heart of Georgetown, one of D.C.’s most historic, renowned and picturesque neighborhoods. The prime address is convenient for those traveling on either leisure or business with many of the city’s cultural attractions, high-end stores and vibrant restaurants easily accessible from the hotel.

A Brief History:

Originally an office building known as the Canal Building, it was constructed in 1963, and was the first major new building constructed in Georgetown in 50 years. The structure was originally designed as a spare, Federalist-style red brick building with small windows. The building was a "first" in a couple of ways. It was the first major new building constructed in Georgetown in the past 50 years, and it was the first new office building constructed in Georgetown in 100 years.

The hotel, which opened in 2013, offers ample privacy, bespoke guest services and a tangible connection to the culture and traditions of the nation’s capital. It was later rebranded as the Rosewood Washington, D.C. in 2016.
