Washington DC is a city that reinvents itself every election. It's a city that is the home to an international cast of high-powered characters. It's a city of handshake deals among rattling martini-shakers.
Take a tour of W Washington, located in one of America's most distinct urban landscapes and, one of the possible settings for your screenplay.
Old Meets New
W Washington was formerly the building that housed the Hotel Washington, a Gilded Age, Neoclassical architectural gem. It has been transformed by the dazzling interior design that sets W Hotels apart.
Up Close and Presidential
As Charles Dickens once quipped, Washington is the "City of Magnificent Distances." But W Washington puts you closer to the halls of power than you'd ever imagine. The POV Roof Terrace overlooks 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and gives you a thrilling view of the city's monuments.
Espionage Lives here
Among the museums that dot the National Mall, none is as unique as the International Spy Museum. Experience the outlandish technologies of the CIA, peep the movie props from 007's capers, and learn how the history of intelligence shaped the modern world.
St. Elmo's Fire...
Just like Demi Moore's gang in the 1980s Brat Pack blockbuster, St. Elmo's Fire, check out Georgetown, a neighborhood replete with high-end boutiques and colorful houses.
Jean-Georges' steakhouse gives a modern makeover to classic cuts of meat. The same can be said of the interior it inhabits. The grand dining room is transformed into a contemporary steakhouse, receptive to parties both formal and relaxed.
Air and Space
If you are looking for the Mt. Rushmore of technology, head to the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum. From Mercury to Apollo to Discovery, NASA's high tech wonders are on full display.
