The Pool at The Capitol Skyline Hotel
Yes, hotel guests flock to The Pool at The Capitol Skyline Hotel's crystalline waters and the lounge chairs and sofas on the deck. But, a decade after the hotel's transformation into a fashionable but accessible vacation spot, the pool has become something of an open secret among DC locals. Anyone can buy a membership and spend the summer splashing around happily and ordering sangria from the poolside bar, just like a hip vegetarian shark. "It's a transporter device," mused The Washington Post's Hank Steuver in 2009. "Not for hard-core swimming, not for athleticism, but for feeling, for glamorous repose . . . Pretending it's anyplace else, anytime else, because it is." Weekly adults-only parties further the tropical-resort mood to the tune of both DJs and live bands.
