Eco-friendly is part of who we are
We're lucky enough to welcome you to our nation's capital, a district defined by its historic waterways and natural features. The city itself was designed around the Potomic River, blending seamlessly into an urban landscape of monuments, museums and governmental buildings. Natural beauty surrounds us everywhere, from our iconic cherry blossom trees to sprawling hiking trails in Rock Creek Park.
With Mother Nature revealing her gifts to us every day, we wanted to find a way to return the favor. And so we set to work making our boutique hotel as environmentally friendly as humanly possible.

Go with the Flow
Even our toilets are in the sustainability game. We've installed low-flow, low-flush commodes to conserve water.
Clean The World
Thanks to our partnership with Clean the World, unused portions of our bar soaps don't get tossed into the trash. Instead, Clean the World recycles them to provide hygiene kits for impoverished communities worldwide, as well as areas recovering from natural disasters.
Our in-room Nespresso machines make java lovers rejoice. Not only do you get the perfect individual serving of coffee, saving water and waste, but our hotel also participates in the Nespresso capsule recycling program.
