The new Fans-of-Baseball package at the Mandarin Oriental includes a swank ride to Nationals Park and the option to upgrade to a water-view suite.

Starry, Starry Nights
Sitting rooftop in Georgetown at the Capella puts a distinct shine on stargazing. The hotel’s new constellation Dinner-and-Dreams Package includes a private three-course, wine-paired meal in The Grill Room, followed by an evening on the hotel’s stunning rooftop. Guests peer through a telescope and learn from a University of Maryland astronomy grad about the heavens above. Instant romance, oh, yes.

Charmed, We’re Sure
Baltimore’s latest hospitality bauble features an artistic twist: The just-opened Lord Baltimore was purchased and refurbished by the Rubell family, known for creating Miami’s Rubell Family Collection, one of the world’s finest contemporary art compilations. In addition to 440 guest rooms and suites—with four penthouses overlooking the hotel’s two rooftop decks—anticipate public-space art exhibits and SideShow, a boutique outpost for Charm City’s American Visionary Art Museum. The hotel’s Culture-and-Arts Package includes a guided tour of the American Visionary Art Museum and The Walters Art Museum, and you can channel Dale Chihuly during private glassmaking classes.

Vaunted VIP
A little help from a friend—in this case, a personal concierge—amps up the new VIP Suites Package at the W.

Choose one of 23 suites and land expanded Bliss Spa amenities in your room, a table at the elite P.O.V. rooftop club and lounge, a $100 dining and cocktail credit and breakfast for two daily. From $499, 515 15th St. NW, 202.661.2400 

Fantasy Camp
The Nationals are legitimate pennant contenders this year, so the Mandarin Oriental tosses a Hall of Fame-worthy performance with its Fans-of-Baseball Package. Upgrade to an executive water-view suite, and get whisked to and from Nationals Park. From $555, 1330 Maryland Ave. SW, 202.554.8588

The just-opened Lord Baltimore blends contemporary art and a classic hospitality pedigree.

Culinary Coup

Gallery Gold

The hotel’s Made in the USA Suite features five giclee reproductions from the exhibit, including Bradley Walker Tomlin’s “No. 9,” as well as furnishings and accessories—from spiral-wrap bowls to WUD martini glasses—that are influenced by the blockbuster event. Guests also receive tickets to the exhibit and breakfast for two (chef Sebastien Archambault’s new egg-white frittata is divine) at the hotel’s Rammy-nominated resto, Blue Duck Tavern. $399, 1201 24th St. NW, 202.789.1234
