Last weekend, I stayed at a cute boutique hotel hidden in downtown Washington, DC. I was invited to speak as a guest at the Fashion360 Conference, hosted by Andrew Roby, who graciously put me up in the Quincy Hotel, located a stones throw away from the White House.

After a four hour Amtrak train ride to Union Station in Washington, DC, I arrived at 10:00pm and was ready to hit the hay.  A 10-minute cab ride landed me at the front desk of The Quincy, where a super friendly front desk concierge was there to greet me.  After checking me in, he directed me to my cozy room.

My room at The Quincy had a retro feel but still looked modern.  For my stay, I had one goal in mind – to relax and get a good night sleep, even though it was a Saturday night and I could have walked to one of the many bars in Dupont Circle.  The firm mattress dressed with crisp white sheets, comfy pillows and turquoise and chocolate duvet covers was ready for me to slip into.  I turned on the 37-inch high definition television and watched a reality show on Bravo before dozing off.  Despite being in the middle of downtown Washington, DC, there were no noises from the street.

The next morning, I got a wake-up call from the concierge bright and early so I could make it to the conference on time.  After my morning shower, I made myself a cup of coffee with the in-room Keurig coffee maker and complimentary coffees and teas in the room. The hotel staff was also kind enough to leave me a small package on my dresser that consisted of a welcome letter, sparkling water, Orangina and M&M candies neatly bundled together.

I sat on the L-shaped chocolate couch in the room to sip on my coffee and nosh on scones my friend Winnie had brought with her that morning.  She was driving me to the conference.  After watching an hour of television, we both got ready thanks to the large floor to ceiling dressing mirror – I wish more hotels would accommodate guests by providing these large mirrors.

I stayed at The Quincy for two nights to get a little rest and relaxation before heading back to New York City.  For dinner, I went downstairs to Mackey’s a pub connected to the hotel with my friend Sasha.  During happy hour, there are lots of lobbyists and K Street business types having drinks with co-workers and friends.  The hotel is also steps away from two metro stations, the Red and Orange lines to take you to most parts of DC.  There are several shopping destinations around it, including Brooks Brothers, Burberry, Victoria’s Secret and of course, just a 10-minute cab ride to the Shops at Georgetown.

For those looking to experience The Quincy Hotel, you can book now on the website. Rates start at $129. Seeing as the king size suite is perfect for two, this is a reasonably priced rate for a weekend getaway with friends.  Oh and pets are welcome for a $100 fee.
