There’s a new spot for spying celebrities in Washington.

Capella luxury hotels has opened its first American property in Georgetown.

After a ribbon cutting ceremony this week, the hotel is ready to court sophisticated travelers. Visitors who stay in one of the 49 elegant rooms, which are designed individually to resemble a private residence, can check in at any time of the day, lounge in couture robes from Saks Fifth Avenue and send out a wrinkled travel wardrobe for complimentary dry-cleaning. The hotel will also provide guests with private, after-hours shopping opportunities throughout town.

“We’re bringing a new level of personalized service and special guest services to the region with Capella,” said Bruce F. Bradley of Castleton Hotel Partners I, LLC. “We wanted to create a highly intimate property offering the ultimate in privacy and security, as well as offering everyday interaction with the Georgetown and D.C. community.”

The new property is tucked along the historic C&O Canal where, from the rooftop pool and bar, there is  a sweeping view of the District.

If you can’t swing the best available rate (around $600 this weekend) for an overnight stay indulge in canal-front patio dining at Chef Jacob Eskom’s restaurant, The Grill Room or sip a rare whiskey inside Capella Georgetown’s The Rye Bar.
