By The Pool

Capitol Skyline Pool: Voted DC's #1 Pool

From Memorial Day through Labor Day, come experience what many local residents already know – “If you’re not here, you’re nowhere.”

This year, the Capitol Skyline will once again transform itself to accomodate all members, guests of the hotel and many local residents who over the years have enjoyed our pool.  This year, we will be focusing on a more relaxed and "chill" enviornment.  We have added Cabanas and upgraded much of the pool furniture.  All seating including Cabanas is on a first come, first serve basis.  We will only have "pool parties" on the holiday weekends this year with DJs.  All other weekends will NOT HAVE DJs and the music featured will be the hotels music. 
For questions regarding the pool and pool membership, please contact us directly.  The pool officially opens on Saturday, May 27th 2017 and closes on Monday, September 4th 2017.
