A beautiful lobby

Last night I had dinner at Ardour, located in the St. Regis hotel here in DC. You may remember I featured the bar of the hotel here, which is my local favorite. Well, this is probably my favorite lobby of any hotel I've seen. Inviting, cozy, beautiful but not overly formal; who doesn't want to hang out here? Sorry for the fuzzy pictures from my camera phone, but you get the idea!
The hotel was recently renovated with the interiors done by Sills Huniford ;Job well done I'd say!

Gladly would I like to hang out there for a while and watch the world go by. I love hotel lobbies and this one looks great!

They really don't make hotel lobbies the way they used to, do they?

Have you ever watched the very great Garbo-Barrymore flick 'Grand Hotel'? If not, you should, absolutely.

Looks gorgeous! Where is it--I'm not familiar with there being a St. Regis in DC. Is it along Connecticut Avenue? Reggie

Reggie,
It's 1 block north of the Hay Adams at the corner of 16th and K streets. One of the grande dame hotels.

Reggie -
I think this used to be called the Sheraton-Carlton. Up toward the University Club.
