The tony Four Seasons Hotel in Georgetown is offering help for anyone stranded by Hurricane Isabel. The hotel came up with a special room rate dubbed “Seeking Shelter from the Storm” for area residents who have to leave their homes or can’t get home because of the weather.

The hotel at 2800 Pennsylvania Ave. NW obtained a generator to keep the place going.

“Because we have an extensive set of contingencies in place for emergencies, and some experience in carrying them out, we have, over the years, become a place of refuge when things go awry,” the hotel said in a press release.

So today and tomorrow, Washington-area residents can stay at the swank hotel for $195 per night, a discount of $200 off the regular rate. Reservations may be made by calling 202/342-0444 and asking for the special shelter package. Guests will be asked to show proof of residency.
