See a Review of Blue Duck Tavern

The Blue Duck Tavern’s open kitchen with a central focus on its wood-burning oven welcomes both travelers and locals alike to gather and celebrate. Three quarters of the menu items are slow-roasted in wood embers, using braising, preserving and smoking techniques to bring out the true flavors of meat and seafood dishes. The Blue Duck Tavern features an open staff pantry and kitchen, a glass-enclosed wine cellar, private tasting room seating up to 16 and Washington’s first commercial Molteni range.

Tea Cellar

Park Hyatt Washington’s Tea Cellar features rare and limited production, single-estate teas from remote regions of China, Japan, Sri Lanka and the Himalayas. The Tea Cellar’s sophisticated tea offerings, some of which are at the level of flavor and complexity of fine wines, not only introduces guests to the highest quality of tea, but also to the significance of water temperature and steeping time each tea requires. Teas are available from $8 to $300 per pot.

Unique in the United States both for its menu and offerings, the Park Hyatt Washington’s Tea Cellar showcases the first Pu-Erh aging cellar in the country, a glass tea humidor used to store, age and display vintage teas and a lit display of tea blossoms that flower when steeped in water.

Guest Rooms

Park Hyatt Washington’s 216 guest rooms combine modern style with classic American materials such as warm limed oak, gray limestone and black walnut. Park Deluxe rooms, the largest in the city at 618 sq. ft or 57 m2 feature generous spa-inspired bathrooms with dark gray limestone rain showers and deep soaking tubs. Guest rooms offer work desks with broadband Internet connections and flat screen televisions. Room accents include antique gameboards and a selection of hardcover books highlighting American crafts and heritage.

A custom fragrance, bathroom amenities, and candles have been designed exclusively for Park Hyatt Washington by Parisian artisan perfumer Blaise Mautin.
