This property received a lavish top-to-bottom renovation between 2014 and 15, starting with the two-tiered rooftop—the only one of its kind in Dupont. The panoramic views of Dupont Circle, tony Kalorama and Embassy Row should be enough, but get there early, in season (Jun 1–Sep 30), and score a pool pass. For $25, a limited number of day passes are released at the front desk, granting access to the dipping pool, cabanas, covered lounge area, bar and grill. After 5pm, it’s a free-for-all. Enjoy the sunset views and of-the-moment eats: kale salads, grilled pretzels, a “Juicy Lucy” burger, plus craft cocktails.
