The wedding is over, and your newlywed life has just begun. So spend that first night as official “marrieds” in style. These local spots offer the perfect places to relax and rejoice.
The chic, ultramodern Hotel George, Washington D.C.’s first boutique hotel, mixes contemporary elegance with a convenient Capitol Hill locale. The eight-story structure was built in 1928 and fully renovated to become the Hotel George in 1997, with 139 soothing beige-and-cream guest rooms and suites. Contemporary furnishings, marble bathrooms and upscale amenities—including cashmere throws, spa robes and Aveda bath products—make the rooms feel luxe. For your first newlywed night, request the hotel’s Romance on Capitol Hill package, which includes a CD of romantic songs and a bottle of champagne. For an extra special night, book the hotel’s George Suite, which features plush-suede furnishings, a dining area and a marble bath with Jacuzzi. Romance package from $250 ($599 for George Suite); 15 E Street NW, Washington, DC; 202/347-4200
For couples who crave an old-fashioned setting, the Swann House Bed & Breakfast in Dupont Circle is the perfect intimate retreat. (In fact, it’s been rated one of the most romantic inns in the country!) The circa 1883 mansion has nine guest rooms and suites; request the scarlet-and-gold decorated Il Duomo room, which has a wrought-iron king-size bed, working fireplace and a turreted bathroom with a claw-foot tub big enough for two. Il Duomo room from $265; 1808 New Hampshire Ave. NW, Washington, DC; 202/265-4414
