Architecturally exquisite, the hotel is part of the Sixteenth Street Historic District and is widely regarded as one of the finest hotels in Washington DC. Formerly called The Carlton, it has a history of presidential and celebrity guests. Ideally located for exploring the city on foot, the hotel also offers guests a variety of things to do, from taking afternoon tea in the grand lobby to taking a cooking class with a top chef.
The hotel offers nine different room types ranging from Superior up to Presidential Suite. All rooms exude refined luxury, with the main difference being floor space and the addition of a butler service for the top class rooms. All rooms have a private bathroom, Wi-Fi, flat screen TV, quality linens, a writing desk, seating and a Bose sound system.
The St Regis is only two blocks away from the White House, and within easy walking distance of the city’s main attractions such as the national monuments, the Smithsonian Museums and Capitol Hill, not to mention various contemporary cultural institutes, eateries and prime shopping outlets.

The Decanter restaurant is the main dining option at the St Regis, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner in a ‘haute American cuisine style’.
