Part of the reason is because there’s just so much to do in Washington D.C.  From the museums and art galleries to exploring nightlife culture on U Street, and of course, finding the best Mumbo sauce around, it’s important to find accommodations that will best suit your itinerary.

Here are some of the most beautiful places to stay in Washington D.C.

The Hay-Adams

Housed in a 1928 Italian Renaissance-style building on Lafayette Square, The Hay-Adams is an upscale hotel offers views of the White House and within a short walk to the Washington Monument. If you’re lucky, maybe you can stay in the same room as former U.S. President Barack Obama during before his first inauguration.

Arc the Hotel

In the heart of the Foggy Bottom neighborhood, you’ll find Arc the Hotel.  Booking a stay here means that you are just blocks away from the Kennedy Center of Performing Arts, adventures in Rock Creek Park and the Potomac River, and the George Washington University Museum, which houses the Textile Museum.

The Willard InterContinental 

This charming and sophisticated hotel is a popular hangout among locals with its Round Robin Bar and afternoon tea in Peacock Alley. Even better: It’s just blocks away from the National Mall.

WhyHotel DC Union Square

What’s appealing about WhyHotel is that it’s a newer concept that aims to blur the lines of hospitality and home. Here is where you will find your home away from home, which so happens to be in the middle of the District’s NoMa neighborhood. If food is one your main reasons for exploring Washington DC, you will be just blocks away from Union Market.
