This resort hotel on the C&O Canal was perhaps this year's most highly anticipated hotel opening. Peep the living room which is reminiscent of the interior of a cozy ski lodge. The Capella opened in March 2013.

One of the great selling points of the Graham is its rooftop bar, The Observatory. In addition to luxe accommodations, there are cushioned chairs on the Observatory which allow for a comfortable yet impressive view of the city. The Graham opened in April 2013.
