    Situated two blocks south of the Smithsonian metro station, this beautiful hotel affords scenic views of the Tidal Basin and easy access to popular attractions like the Smithsonian Museums, the Washington Monument and the Jefferson Memorial. Most guests love their stays at this Mandarin Oriental thanks to its array of amenities, including The Spa and an on-site art gallery. The recently renovated accommodations also win over recent guests because of their wooden furnishings, Asian design elements and high-end amenities like deep-soaking tubs, high-speed internet access and flat-screen TVs. Meanwhile, the hotel's two on-site restaurants – Muze and the Empress Lounge – earn a thumbs-up for their gourmet cuisine and stylish ambiance. The Mandarin Oriental also boasts an indoor swimming pool and a 24-hour fitness center. Yet for many guests, it's the hotel's wonderful customer service that won them over.

    The Willard InterContinental

    0.53 miles away

    Washington, DC
    0.5 miles to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 4036 reviewsTripAdvisor (4036)
    The massive Willard sits at the heart of everything D.C.; the National Mall and all of the most recognizable monuments are within walking distance. And recent guests say The Willard InterContinental's interior is just as impressive as its surroundings, particularly the massive marble columns and intricate chandeliers in the lobby. Elegant decor extends to The Willard's accommodations, which feature eye-popping red accents, wood furnishings and luxurious amenities like flat-screen TVs, individual climate controls and fully stocked minibars. To ensure a restful night's sleep, request a room that looks west, facing the Washington Monument rather than 14th Street. And after a long day of sightseeing, you can relax at the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa or grab a bite to eat at one of the on-site reastaurants. If you participate in InterContinental's Rewards Club, you can accrue or redeem free perks and discounts by choosing to stay here.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 485 reviewsTripAdvisor (485)
    Rubbing elbows with the National Portrait Gallery and the Verizon Center, the Kimpton Hotel Monaco Washington DC is just as fun and funky as nearby Chinatown. This stylish Kimpton hotel blends vibrant colors and elegant furnishings in its eclectic decor. Meanwhile, accommodations here earn praise from previous visitors for their luxurious amenities like high-speed internet access (included in daily amenity fee), flat-screen TVs and pet necessities (such as bowls and beds). Recent guests can't stop raving about the hotel's warm and inviting guest rooms, but don't plan on spending all your time cooped up in your digs, no matter how smitten you are with their design. For delectable eats, head to the Dirty Habit, a cocktail lounge with Asian-influenced small plates. If you participate in the IHG Rewards Club program, you can receive perks and extras by choosing to stay here.

    W Washington D.C.

    0.55 miles away

    Washington, DC
    0.5 miles to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 2521 reviewsTripAdvisor (2521)
    Rubbing elbows with the Department of the Treasury and the White House, the W Washington D.C. places guests in the heart of our country's political sphere. This W property is much more colorful than its white-stone neighbors; guests love the hotel's funky red furniture and purple lighting, which gives the W a nightclub-esque feel. In addition to the decor, previous visitors praise the accommodations, furnished with 350-thread-count linens, flat-screen TVs and high-speed internet access (for a fee). Visitors also compliment the W's upscale dining venue Pinea Restaurant, but for many, the highlight of this hotel is the P.O.V. rooftop lounge, which boasts breathtaking views of the National Mall. Just keep in mind: If you're looking for a quiet place to stay, this is not the right place for you. Some recent guests say that the noise level can be a problem for those trying to get a restful night's sleep. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.
