Staying at Embassy Row Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Embassy Row Hotel
I think I have fallen in love with the Destination Hotel properties. They are all so different, but I love them all equally – like the way you feel when you have multiple children. This weekend I had the amazing opportunity to stay at Embassy Row Hotel located in Washington, D.C. in the Dupont Circle neighborhood.
The vibes of the hotel are very modern and artistic. The entry way by the reception has  seating options that are all so different. My personal favorite are the seats with the high backs that make you feel like royalty. I could cit in those all day with coffee and read.

Beyond the lobby and seating area is an open concept dining and bar called Station Kitchen and Cocktails. Not only is the decor retro chic but the food is fabulous. I could eat tacos and wings everyday, I went with my gut and tried something new. I went with the pork and waffles and  … I could’ve ordered the same dish again. I am still talking about today – it was that good. The dish was cornbread waffles that had real corn in them, topped with pulled pork and diced cooked apples. It all blended well together. I will probably try and make this a new staple dish in my home. If you find yourself in Washington, D.C. at a minimum pop on over for this dish!

One thing that I love about Destination Hotel’s rooms throughout each property is how individualized they are for their location. One thing that really stood out to me were the pillows on the bed that had some of the local monuments on them. This added a really nice touch for the location. The colors of the walls blended everything so nicely together as well.

Embassy Row has the only rooftop bar in the neighborhood and I didn’t know it then, but I was in for a fantastic evening. They host a silent disco on the rooftop at sunset and it goes until 11:00pm. I know you are thinking, what is a silent disco? Ok – easily the most amazing party you will ever attend – and also the quietest. The concept is that there are three DJ’s spinning music and you get a pair of headphones that you can change across the three channels to pick what you want to hear. Everyone was having such a great time dancing and listening to what they wanted to hear.
In retrospect, this is probably one of the most genius ideas I have ever come across. Since the noise levels aren’t very high due to everyone wearing headphones, you can have the outdoor rooftop party without disturbing the neighborhood.
I would highly, highly recommend experiencing this at least once. It was one of the coolest parties I have ever been to. People of all ages were in attendance and everyone was having such a blast.
Bonus: you get to see the sunset!

Silent Disco!

Overall I really liked the hotel. The decor fits the artist neighborhood, good vibes from the hotel, food is phenomenal, and the silent disco will change your life.
Tip: The Dupont Circle Metro is around the block so it is easy to get around the city and to and from  Reagan National Airport if you are coming into the city from outside the state.

    I love the decor and colors at this hotel. Especially the wall behind the bed and I am with you on the pillows.
    I have been wanting to do a silent disco, there are several of them in NYC. I guess I really need to make that happen!
