Built in 1881, the Summit Hotel was regarded as a trendy spring and summer resort for those fortunate enough to take a holiday from the hustle and bustle of Washington, D. C. The hotel was located nat the northeast corner of Summit and Frederick Avenues where Saint Martin's Church now stands. The elegant hotel was surrounded by stately elm trees and could accomodate as many as 100 guests.

During the spring and summer months, the Summit Hotel was open to the many vacationers escaping the heat of the nation's capitol. The hotel manager, Juan Boyle, hosted many elaborate banquets, elegant balls, and open air concerts throughout the social season. Boyle's catered affairs were tastefully done and attracted many distinguished guests, including senators and other notable political figures. Although business slowed during the cold winter months, the Summit Hotel remained fully utilized. During the hotel's final winter, it served as home to the Fair View Seminary. Sadly, the Summit Hotel was destroyed by fire in 1895.
