Washington, DC (April 5, 2013) — This weekend, head up to the W Hotel’s P.O.V rooftop and grab a Cherry Limeade, a Cherry Cilantro Mojitos and Crackling Cherry Pie, just in time for this weekend’s National Cherry Blossom Festival. Cocktails are priced at $10 and the pie with an audible in-your-mouth Pop-Rocks crackle is priced at $9.
Also, if you would like to stay in the downtown area, the Cherry Blossom Room Hotel Package starts with a choice of room, from a Wonderful Room to the E-WOW (Presidential) Suite, and a bottle of champagne upon arrival. Starting at $289, this offering includes two handcrafted cocktails of your choice and that Crackling Cherry Pie on the rooftop.
But look around and above the lobby, as you will see blossoms from a Julie Chang-designed ceiling or inside of bliss spa, whose interiors are decorated with cherry blossoms throughout. Don’t forget that W is also a pet-friendly hotel, whose P.A.W. Program (Pets Are Welcome) includes everything from doggie beds to pet turn-down service.
This year, the National Cherry Blossom Festival will draw an estimated 1.5 million tourists from around the world; W’s international guests will feel right at home at W, whose Welcome Desk staff speaks a total of 9 languages fluently.
The National Cherry Blossom Festival returns to Washington, D.C. from March 20 through April 14; the National Park Service has estimated peak bloom dates from Saturday, April 6 through Monday, April 8. Washington D.C.’s cherry trees were a gift from the Mayor of Tokyo Yukio Ozaki in 1912 to the city in honor of the lasting friendship between the United States and Japan.
