Located on the left shore of the Potomac river, the capital of the United States is such a pleasant city. During the spring season, the city celebrates the blooming of cherry trees or “sakura”. In 1912, the planting of cherry trees in DC was a gift of friendship to the Americans from Japanese people and since then, every year, the celebration has never stopped.
All around the city, the flowery and beautiful cherry trees can be admired. From the National Mall with all its war and federal buildings, historical Georgetown or The Wharf district which stretches along a mile waterfront, the nation’s capital is such a great destination. Those who visit the city for the first time will discover a dynamic city. Morever, its celebrated history is synonymous with that of a great American city.
Walking the streets of hip and historic Georgetown offers a true taste of the US Capital, a vast culinary choice with high end boutiques and celebrated landmarks. The Four Seasons Georgetown Washington, DC is perfectly located in the heart of Georgetown and always the best spot to stay while in the city.
This spring, the 5 star hotel awakened from a long winter and transformed from an alpine chic getaway into a splendid flourishing Sakura Blossom Spring. Celebrating Haru Matsuri, the annual spring festival in Japan meaning a new beginning, the property has offered its guests exquisite Japanese experiences. “We have commemorated new beginnings at Four Seasons Hotel Washington, DC inspired by the natural beauty of our city in spring and by our colleagues at Four Seasons in Kyoto,” explained Regional Vice President and General Manager Marc Bromley. “Through the craftsmanship of our team – our chefs, bartenders, concierge, housekeepers, spa technicians and so many more – we have definitely created renewed connections with our guests” he added.
Discovering DC during the Cherry Blossom Festival toward the end of March is extraordinary, probably the most photogenic time of the year when the city comes alive against a backdrop of soft pink.
At the Four Seasons DC, the award winning Chef Michael Mina’s Bourbon Steak restaurant offers innovative American steakhouse, overseen by Executive Chef, Robert Curtis. Certainly the best casual chic steakhouse restaurant in town. Note that at breakfast time, the place is the meeting point of DC power players.
For those who crave for beef meat, the Wagyu A5 tasting trio prepared by the chef is divine. Appreciate an umami of flavor with a trio of tender, melt-in-the-mouth wagyu beef: Sanuki, Chateau Uenae or Miyazaki wagyu beef. Of course, as you wish, coordinate the Wagyu with some special Japanese whiskey. The Kobe beef is known to be the best meat in the world.The Kobe beef comes from a rare breed of Beef called wagyu, Wa for “from Japan” and Gyu for Beef originated from the Japanese city Wagyu. In Japan, the farm and breeding techniques are carefully supervised and that makes the meat unique, rare and expensive.
