Looking down on the White House since 1928, the historic Hay-Adams provides arguably the best unobstructed views of the President's dormitory, along with 145 guestrooms, fine dining, and one of the "World's Best Hotel Bars."
The capital’s closest neighbor since 1917, this newly renovated hotel has one of the best rooftop views in town and has the “sophistication of Sinatra to the charm of Chevalier” in all of its 317 rooms.
Boasting that it's the "life of the party", Hotel Helix must be genetically wired for a good time, as the cheeky Logan Circle hotel (located just off 14th street) is stocked with bunk beds, an outdoor patio, and a funky lounge with private alcoves.
After a full day of museum hopping in DC, come back to your room and continue the experience. Hotel Palomar covers all your luxury needs and will immerse you in an environment that is “continuously and harmoniously changing.” This is “Art in Motion.”
After walking all day and visiting the monuments D.C. has to offer, who wouldn't be stoked to come back to a pristine 10,500sqft spa. Be sure to stop by one of their three restaurants where you'll be sure to find something to satisfy your palate.
The Avenue Suites in Georgetown doesn't need your star rating, as portraits of famous actors from Paul Newman to Al Pacino gracing its boutique lobby walls, watching as you decide whether to enter the contemporary cocktail lounge or head to the fire-pitted outdoor terrace.
The four-diamond St Regis DC located two blocks from the White House has welcomed/hosted every American president since Coolidge cut the grand opening ribbon in 1926.
The boutique Donovan House has good reason to not consider itself "your daddy's DC", as the swank'd out Thomas Circle urban retreat offers up a design-forward ambiance with a sleek sushi restaurant, modern stylish rooms, and a rooftop pool that, come nighttime, clubs harder than any of those Norwegian dudes.
