    Just FYI, we're totally willing to let our new pedicures dry up here on the rooftop terrace.

    The W Hotel (515 15th St. N.W.) will finally opens its doors tomorrow in the former Hotel Washington space -- we know, the name is SO majorly different.

    The new venture serves up signature restaurants and (of course) the rooftop bar and terrace with famously panoramic views of Washington. All cuisine is courtesy of Chef Jean Georges, who created the menu exclusively for the W.

    The W hotel also boasts a state-of-the-art fitness center and the first D.C. outpost of the famous Bliss Spa. The spa (open 9 a.m.-9 p.m.) offers a relaxing setting complete with all your favorite spa ammenities -- think treatment rooms, a luxe nail lounge, separate men's and women's locker rooms and lounges complete with glass-tiled steam showers (ooh, fancy), saunas and more.

    While indulging in clever treatments like the "Ginger Rub, Hangover Herbie, Betweeny Wax and Triple Oxygen Treatment," munch on spa snacks like olives, cheese, fruit and the legendary Bliss Spabrownie buffet. Fans voted online for Bread & Chocolate to be the local provider of said brownies.

    Want the special VIP treament? Book a night at the hotel, 'cause guests can take advatntage of "BIP" (Bliss Important Person) status for priority reservations.

    Spa treatments, top notch restrurants and trendy rooftop bars sound like the life to us -- and after playing host all Independence Day weekend, we sure could use a little pampering.
