What to expect: A sleek Euro feel of glass, natural fibers, and golden-hued wood. A favorite among world travelers who trust the Park Hyatt brand and prefer the energy at the cusp of Georgetown.
Where to spend your dollars: Cozy in at the Tea Cellar, presided over by tea expert Marie Hatakeyama. Those seeking a sturdier drink slip into glass-enclosed booths at the bar. “It’s like having a private conversation on display,” says frequent visitor Chris Gieckel, adding that the pear martini is a house favorite. “I’m not known for having girly drinks, but I’ll order a second one.”
The inside story: Purchase your favorite tea from the tasting to prepare at home, including vintage brews.
