Destination Hotels: Embassy Row Hotel Rooftop Pool

Embassy Row_Pool5

I recently had the pleasure to visit the remodeled The Embassy Row Hotel and enjoy their rooftop pool for the day. The hotel has gone under a major renovation and from what I had seen before and not feels like two completely different properties.

The hotel now offers a brunch. Most people know I’m not really a brunch person. I wake up way to early to wait until midday to eat so breakfast is usually my thing. The day I tried the brunch I had walked 5 miles, then took yoga on the hotel’s rooftop and was practically starving by 10:00 am. Thank goodness their brunch starts early. It set the tone for the day. I definitely plan on going back to the hotel to enjoy the pool one more time before summer ends.

The hotel still has events at the pool, including happy hour, and morning in partnership with EPIC Yoga. I hope they continue to have events once summer is over. If feels like a complete escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Also, I couldn’t hear any traffic or sirens which made the time at the people enjoyable. My one caveat? I hope next summer they get one of those margarita machines because I love an icy libation by a pool.

The Embassy Row Rooftop Pool is a must in the summer. I already have plans to return in 2016 on my calendar. Yes, summer is my favorite season.

Here are few upcoming events at the hotel.

Pope Party – September 22

The Embassy Row Hotel is celebrating Pope Francis’ visit to Washington D.C. with a Pope-centric party on The Rooftop on Tuesday, September 22, 2015.  Eat like the Pope, indulging in some of his favorite foods including an assortment of cheeses, breads, meats, empanadas and dulce de leche all while watching his journey throughout the city. Tickets are priced at $25 and include food, a glass of Malbec and live DJ entertainment. All proceeds benefit So Others Might Eat (S.O.M.E), an organization that works to meet the needs of the poor and homeless through immediate services such as food, clothing and medical care.

KLEEN Event – September 24

Jump start the day with a morning rave on The Rooftop hosted by KLEEN City on Thursday, September 24. Beginning at 6:00am, relax with a morning yoga class accompanied by a live DJ and followed by a heart pumping dance party and bootcamp. The event concludes at 9:00am, just in time for guests to dance their way to work. $25 entry.

Art All Night – September 26

Serving as the artistic hub of Dupont Circle, The Embassy Row Hotel will be featuring different art installations, paintings and films on Saturday, September 26, 2015.  Fire performer, Kyle Virvelfind, will illuminate the night sky alongside the beats of the DJs from One Love Massive.  Walk up the stairwell to find art from John Marc’s live art painting and installation.
