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.

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.
