Explore D.C. and Taste the Grand Hyatt Washington Watermelon Martini

Summers can be balmy in Washington, D.C. The Grand Hyatt Washington D.C knows how to cool down its guests and I can't wait to find out when I check-in soon. The Cure Bar and Bistro, located in Penn Quarter near Chinatown, serves up a refreshing watermelon martini. It is refreshing and the perfect summer cocktail. This will be the first hotel you see on Instagram for our trip.

Grand Hyatt Washington D.C. shares watermelon martini recipe and they have a great family travel package that includes museum admission.

Grand Hyatt Washington D.C. Watermelon Martini


2 ½ oz Tito’s vodka
½ cup fresh watermelon cubes
½ oz simple syrup
Decorative green sugar (for glass rim)


Muddle watermelon
Add to shaker with vodka and simple syrup
Shake and strain into martini glass with green sugared rim

The Grand Hyatt Washington D.C. is currently offering the Explore DC package which includes admission to a popular D.C musuem and breakfast for two. Rates begin at $388 per night. Your museum choice includes:

Madame Tussauds Washington, D.C. is a unique wax attraction that brings history and pop culture to life. See, touch and take photos with some of your favorite celebrities and historical figures under one roof. Madame Tussauds Washington, D.C. is the only place in the world where people can see and interact with all 44 Presidents of the United States in 3D! 

Or visit the Crime Museum where you explore American History from a different perspective. Guests have the opportunity to dive into our Nation's history of crime and its consequences, law enforcement, forensic science, crime scene investigation (CSI) through a captivating interactive, entertaining and educational experience. 

With this Explore Package, you'll enjoy:

  • Full Breakfast Buffet in Cabinet for 2
  • Two Tickets to the Crime Museum or Madame Tussauds Washington, D.C.
  • 2:00pm Late Checkout

Neither one of those museums in this particular package worked for our family so we're visiting the International Spy Museum and Newseum instead. After talking with fellow writer, Karen Dawkins of Family Travels on a Budget, who just did a press trip to D.C., I felt the Crime Museum would be too much for my 5-year-old and she would be scared. She is also scared of mannequins so I knew a wax museum would upset her as well. 

At the time, I was curating this hotel trip, the hotel suggested these other attractions and I am so glad. I think we have found the perfect fit. When booking hotels, always talk to the hotels about the choices available, or if you have any questions at all about a certain package. Hotels are certainly there to help you have a great vacation. 

I'm excited about Washington D.C. We'll be staying five days and in three different luxury properties.
