Rosewood takes over Georgetown hotel

Rosewood D.C.

Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has been appointed by CTF Development International to manage the former Capella Washington, D.C., after it acquired the hotel from Castleton Hotel Partners for $65 million.

Now known as the Rosewood Washington, D.C., Rosewood is working with Capella Hotels during the 49-room hotel's transition.

The building was formerly home of the Trial Lawyers Association, and a partnership between Castleton Holdings and Capella Hotel Group transitioned the property into a hotel that opened in 2013. The property is located near the C&O Canal in D.C.'s Georgetown neighborhood. The hotel's interiors includes contemporary works of art and a number of dining options such as the Grill Room, Rye Bar and a rooftop lounge.
