The West Coast's Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf Can Now Be Enjoyed at the Washington Hilton
Finally, East Coasters can now get a Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf java jolt without having to take a vacation to the West Coast.
The Southern California coffee company has finally begun expanding East this year, with new locations in New York and Florida. But now Coffee Bean's Original Ice Blended drinks, along with usual specialty coffee and tea drinks as well as pastries have landed at the Washington Hilton in D.C.
Here's a shot of some hotel employees with Cupid on opening day, which was actually Valentine's Day.
“We are thrilled to bring The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® experience to our energetic, in-the-know Washingtonian neighbors seeking quality food and beverages,” said Steve Cowan, general manager, Washington Hilton.
While the Bean will be a boon for local traffic, we think it will make hotel guests especially happy for a bigger reason. Coffee Beans usually offer free WiFi in their shops, meaning hotel guests could bypass the hotel's current $13 a day internet charge and just check their email in the Coffee Bean.
A mocha ice blended, free WiFi and a hotel room upstairs? Sounds pretty good to us.
