  • If you’re planning on spending your trip visiting different monuments and attractions, look for hotels in Washington, D.C. that are in the neighborhood of Capitol Hill, such as the Capitol Hill Hotel. You can find many interesting places to visit in this area, including the US Capitol building and the Supreme Court.
  • Many of the city’s restaurants can be found in the neighborhood of Columbia Heights, making this a great place to stay if you want to be close to several different dining options. The U Street Hostel will put you in this neighborhood and only a 5min drive from the White House.
  • Travelers that want to be in an area that is particularly central and also well connected to public transportation should select lodging in downtown Washington, D.C. The Madison Hotel is a chic place to stay that is a short walk from bus lines 52 and 54.
  • To stay in a quiet and residential neighborhood that is just a short distance from many other neighborhoods, including Capitol Hill and downtown, opt to stay in Dupont Circle. The Suite Classic at Oakwood Suites & Studios Dupont Circle can be found in the center of this quarter.
  • Those that want to be in a neighborhood that provides access to nature and lush greenery should look for hotels in Woodley Park, an area that is known for its greenspaces and foliage. The Omni Shoreham Hotel can be found here and has an on-site business center.
  • Many neighborhoods in DC are spread out, so it is better to book a hotel in the general downtown area specifically near a metro stop, such as The Westin, than to insist on staying right by the Mall, which is home to Washington’s iconic monuments.
  • If you are traveling with your family and will need more than two beds, make sure to specify with the hotel ahead of time. Hotel rooms in Washington generally do not have space for roll-away beds for children. For large groups, it might be best to look at hotels with suites, like the Embassy Suites by Hilton at the Georgetown location.
  • Tours usually leave very early in the morning, so it might help to select a hotel that offers a buffet breakfast for a quick start to your day. The Capitol Hill Hotel offers a quality, free breakfast and is only a block away from the metro.
  • Interested in staying in a charming local neighborhood that is still close to downtown? Book a hotel near Dupont Circle, such as The Embassy Row Hotel. This area features DC’s famous colorful row houses, and it has a large selection of both chain and boutique hotels. It’s also within short walking distance of the White House and other famous monuments.
  • DC is not a particularly large city, and when it fills up for events, conventions, and festivals, such as the Cherry Blossom Festival or a protest march, it becomes harder to find a hotel, use the metro, or make a restaurant reservation, particularly downtown. However, if you book in advance, you shouldn’t have any problems.
