Introducing Capella Washington DC & Alex Obertop

Capella Washington DC

It was a beautiful September day and not a cloud in the sky as I heard the metro train arriving at Navy Yard. I hopped on the green line, switched to the orange line, and got off at Foggy Bottom where I waited for the Circulator bus to take me to 31st and M street.

There in historic Georgetown, I looked up and saw the newest Capella property.  Opening in January 2013, Capella Washington DC Georgetown is poised to be the talk of the town.  Like every other day, construction workers were hard at work building our dream.  This neighborhood has been bustling with activity for centuries making it the perfect location for this hotel.

Just a few doors down I walked into our office and greeted our General Manager, Alex Obertop. Together, we walked towards the Potomac River, just a block away from Capella Washington DC Georgetown.  I adjusted my camera and began rolling for a video chat. It was incredibly exciting getting to know a little bit more about Alex!


I know you will love getting to know Alex and the rest of our team behind Capella Washington DC Georgetown. As your Insider, you can also connect with me on Facebook and Twitter. I have great stories and updates to share with you during the upcoming months as we prepare for our launch!
