We just stayed at the Park Hyatt in Washington D.C., and wow, it was fantastic. You might be saying, sure, of course, it’s a fancy hotel…but really, it’s way beyond luxury–it’s intuitive…it read my mind…it was like the perfect mate. Here’s what impressed me:

1. There was a stamped postcard in the room just ready for us to send off.

2. There were three times more hooks than I’ve ever seen in any hotel room anywhere. I’m not talking back of door—I’m talking wall-mounted hooks.

3. It used clever design to hide things that normally junk up a counter (amenity kit—including toothpaste—was in the top shaker style wooden box, and a hair dryer in the bottom box).

4. It had a genius solution to flat-screen tv: a wall that has a cutout that swivels–so you can watch tv, or turn it around and have a blank wall.

5. Awesome bathroom products from Le Labo, but more importantly, a deep and wide tub, with help-yourself bath salts.

6. A mini Geneva sound system/iPod dock, next to the bed.

7. Interesting room lighting…this didn’t photograph so well, but trust me, it was nice to have floor lighting in the room.

8. An epic kids’ menu

9. Free bikes to ride around the city, both for adults, and kids.

10. A welcome to canines both big and small!

11. I don’t have a picture of it, but a fantastic indoor pool (saline not chlorine) that has a skylight so it isn’t depressing, plus a hot tub, plus great teak lounge furniture.

12. Milk and cookies delivered to the room…
