Meet the Run Concierge
Felix Nunez, our Executive Chef, became an avid runner seven years ago after a physical exam with his doctor, who urged him to lose weight and recommended he take up running.
Although getting started was difficult, Felix managed to get his timing down from 11 minutes per mile to 8.5 minutes per mile. He used his SuperFoods knowledge to improve his eating habits, wanting to fuel his body with energy for his runs.
Felix enjoys running on the National Mall in downtown Washington DC. In his own words “There is something about the monuments, running along the reflecting pool and the history surrounding me. Every time I run there I get motivated to push myself ever harder.”
We offer maps designed and certified by New Balance for Washington D.C. running routes around the hotel. Maps are available at the concierge and feature 5 through 8k jogging/walking routes from our hotel.

We’ve teamed up with New Balance to provide three- and five-mile routes through the city, along the beach or into rural landscapes.
Runners of all levels are welcome to join a group run with our Run Concierge at many locations, or grab a running map and take off on their own. Either way, you’ll be welcomed back with a fresh towel and cold bottled water.
