Featured Washington Hotels

Nestled between Maryland and Virginia on the scenic Potomac River, Washington, D.C. squeezes an amazing list of attractions into 60 square miles. It is a stately hub of government, history, business, education and entertainment, and visitors from around the world dive into the unique citywide culture. Regardless of your reason for visiting Washington, D.C., a memorable experience surely awaits. Let IHG help you find the ultimate Washington, D.C. hotel for your stay in the nation’s capital.

Things to See

The White House tops many D.C. visitors’ must-see lists. A great way to plan your visit in advance is to reserve tickets through a member of Congress. Taking a stroll along the National Mall, a swath of land rife with famous monuments, museums and memorials, including the Lincoln Memorial, the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial and the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, is a high-priority for visiting history buffs. Also on the Mall are the National Museum of American History, the National Air and Space Museum and the Smithsonian Castle. Spend a day exploring fascinating exhibits at the National Museum of Natural History, including the immaculate Hope Diamond and the equally larger-than-life, taxidermied elephant in the museum’s rotunda. You’ll also find golden opportunities for outdoor recreation. Hillwood Gardens and the Franciscan Monastery Gardens are both home to thousands of lovely plants. The National Arboretum, which you can walk, bike or jog through, is another highlight. You might also stop by the National Zoological Park and meet its most famous residents, panda couple Mei Xiang and Tian Tian. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, sample the cuisine scene at restaurants like Ayse, Bangkok Golden, Barlett Pear Inn, and Old Ebbitt Grill.

Hotels in Washington, D.C.

The D.C. area is home to a variety of hotels offering historic luxury, convenience and budget-friendly pricing. When looking at our listings, consider not only price and location but also things like pet policies, and whether the hotel has unique characteristics that add extra value to your vacation. For example, history lovers may be drawn to the 1920s-era facades of hotels near the White House, while design hounds might prefer the sleek boutique hotels of the West End.

Where to Stay

Capitol Hill, which is close to the National Mall and other attractions, is a good place to stay if you have government business in Washington, or just want to find yourself in the thick of the city action. Penn Quarter is full of restaurants, businesses and a thriving nightlife, with close proximity to the Verizon Center. Dupont Circle is for those seeking a calmer neighborhood atmosphere. If you intend to stay outside of D.C. proper, look at accommodations in nearby Alexandria, Virginia; it has a lovely Old Town and is accessible via the Metro.

How to Get to Washington, D.C.

The D.C. area has three airports: Reagan National Airport, Dulles International Airport and Baltimore-Washington International Airport, with Reagan being the closest to downtown. Before booking your flight, compare rates between the three airports and look at available ground transportation options. Hailing a taxi, finding a shuttle or taking a bus from both Reagan National and Dulles International are easy, and there is a train station near Baltimore-Washington International.

A Classic Gem
By Becky
The Willard is a classic gem with a perfect location! Stayed at another five star down the block in the old post office last year and truly preferred the Willard! The hotel is beautiful and [More] comfortable and it is located within a block of fantastic restaurants! Used the hop on and hop off bus and it has a couple of stops at the Willard. When I’m in DC will definitely stay here again. [Less]
Great Stay
By bigredinmass
One of the best hotel experiences I had in a long time. Have Ambassador status and stayed at the Willard for a free weekend night. Got an upgrade to a beautiful suite and was offered a late [More] checkout of 5PM at check-in. The hotel is very traditional, grand Washington style. The lobby is very elegant. Room was clean. The staff was excellent. My only negative comment is the hotel bar is a small and gets quite crowded. But I would certainly stay at the Willard again. [Less]
50th Wedding Anniversary Vacation
By TimP
Our children gave us this trip for our 50th Wedding Anniversary gift. We thought that this part of our vacation may be just a bit on the expansive and while it was it was well worth the cost. [More] Although the hotel is the oldest in Washington D.C. it is just beautiful and has been extremely well maintained. Hopefully we will be able to return one day. [Less]
Comfortable room in great location
By Griet
Great hotel for the price. Comfortable room , great bed, good bathroom, coffee maker. Next door to Starbucks and food trucks. Taxis in front of the door. Easy fast check in. Friendly staff. Only [More] negative was the sad view from the window. [Less]
Reception staff were great!!!
By Traveling Man
I enjoyed my stay, as staff made me feel very welcome and responded well to my every need. Although my room was near the railroad tracks, it was a very comfortable and spacious room. My only [More] concerning was that the sink fixtures, in the bathroom, were loose. [Less]
a safe experience in DC
By kumakevi
I was a bit worried before deciding to stay in the Holiday Inn Capitol because I had never stayed in the area before and had been told that at night places close to the Capitol were not as safe as in [More] NW. I need not have worried about that. Lots of Federal buildings and security and the hotel felt safe. Staff were pleasant and courteous EXCEPT for not getting help with luggage. Taxis outside were reluctant to take cash and claimed to have no change for $20 bill. Inside the room, my only grumble was not having a choice of a bath or shower. The shower was big enough, though.
