    Kimpton Mason & Rook Hotel

    1.07 miles away

    Washington, DC
    1.3 miles to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 758 reviewsTripAdvisor (758)
    Free WiFi

    Frequently described by guests as "trendy," the Kimpton Mason & Rook sits in Washington, D.C.'s, 14th Street neighborhood, just minutes from the equally hip Logan Circle. Formerly the Hotel Helix, this Kimpton outpost underwent renovations before taking on its new identity, and recent guests appreciated the updated interiors. Rooms feature "sophisticated, residential design" (retro vinyls, dark woods, and worn leathers) and are equipped with 65-inch flat-screen TVs, Bluetooth speakers, 400-thread-count Frette linens and oversized glass enclosed showers (a highlight for recent lodgers). The hotel's seasonal rooftop pool and bar was another favorite feature for guests, who loved its city views and inventive cocktails. Though you're surrounded by some of the city's best restaurants, you should consider grabbing a bite at the on-site Radiator restaurant, which earned praise from past guests for its small plates and outdoor patio seating. True to the Kimpton brand, this hotel also offers a complimentary wine reception every evening, as well as free morning coffee and tea. You'll also find a 24-hour fitness center on-site, and bikes for exploring the city (use of which is covered in the property's daily $22.99 "facilities fee," which also includes free Wi-Fi). If you're a IHG Rewards Club member, you can use or accrue points and perks here.

    The LINE DC

    1.16 miles away

    Washington DC, DC
    2.3 miles to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 145 reviewsTripAdvisor (145)
    Free WiFi

    Housed inside a 110-year-old church, the LINE DC blends historic architecture with quirky decor and top-notch service. Recent guests rave about the authentic, homey feel of the property. The hotel boasts king, queen and suite options with live plants, bathrobes and slippers, handmade bath products, original artwork and photography, free Wi-Fi access and more. (Note that turndown service is only available by request.) Rooms overlook the eclectic Adams Morgan neighborhood, offering views of the Washington Monument and other Washington sights. Beyond your accommodations, you'll find a sound studio in the lobby where Full Service Radio – a community radio station – broadcasts live. Recent visitors noted that the hotel's staff members were friendly and eager to offer nearby restaurant and bar recommendations. Although, if you'd rather stay on-site for drinks and dinner, you're in luck. The LINE DC offers three restaurants run by two James Beard-recognized chefs: A Rake's Progress (serving Chesapeake-inspired delicacies), Brothers and Sisters (offering American classics with a Taiwanese and Japanese twist) and Spoken English (a 12-seat Asian-inspired communal dining experience located off the lobby). If you're looking for quick sandwiches, baked goods or coffee instead, pop into The Cup We All Race.

    1.14 miles away

    Washington, DC
    1.7 miles to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2350 reviewsTripAdvisor (2350)

    Set four blocks northeast of Dupont Circle in Washington, D.C., the Kimpton Carlyle Hotel Dupont Circle is described by recent guests as the perfect home base for a trip to the nation's capital. While some travelers wished the property sat closer to the nearest Metro station, others appreciated the hotel's quiet residential street. Guests also praised the stylish accommodations that blend modern touches with classic designs and are equipped with Tempur-Pedic beds, Frette linens and flat-screen TVs. Those who plan to stay a while can opt for a Deluxe room with a kitchenette or sleeper sofa. Travelers also appreciated the friendly staff and standard Kimpton freebies like a hosted wine hour and complimentary morning tea. Other amenities include a 24-hour fitness center, free loaner PUBLIC bikes and the on-site restaurant, The Riggsby, which is popular with locals and travelers alike. Plus, this hotel's affiliation with Kimpton means members of the Kimpton Karma Rewards program can earn or redeem perks, such as free Wi-Fi access, while staying here.

    Marriott Marquis Washington, DC

    1.18 miles away

    Washington, DC
    1 mile to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 2058 reviewsTripAdvisor (2058)

    Boasting more than 100,000 square feet of event space and direct access to the Walter E. Washington Convention Center via an underground concourse, the Marriott Marquis is well-suited for business travelers. But that doesn't mean you won't find leisure travelers here, too. After all, the hotel's location near Penn Quarter and the Verizon Center offers a convenient perch for sightseers. Aside from the hotel's address, recent guests also praised the accommodations, not only for their amenities, but also for their cleanliness. Rooms are outfitted with minifridges, flat-screen TVs and, in select accommodations, floor-to-ceiling windows. For more impressive views, lodgers suggest booking a room on the upper floors of the hotel. This Marriott outpost also offers three on-site restaurants and a lobby bar, but most visitors suggest dining at one of the stellar neighborhood eateries instead. When you're not working up a sweat walking around the city, get your fill of exercise at the 8,000-square-foot, bi-level fitness center. And if you're a Marriott Bonvoy member, consider upgrading to the M Club lounge, which sits on the 12th floor and provides complimentary breakfast, hors d'oeuvres during the week and 24-hour access to snacks.

    Morrison-Clark Historic Inn & Restaurant

    1.14 miles away

    Washington, DC
    1.1 miles to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 913 reviewsTripAdvisor (913)
    Housed within a 19th-century Victorian mansion and among the landmarks listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Morrison-Clark Historic Inn & Restaurant charms travelers with its unique character and design. Plus, since it's located two blocks west of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and within easy reach of downtown D.C.'s restaurants and shops, it's a convenient home base for both business and leisure travelers. Aside from its location, guests praise the accommodations. Because the hotel underwent an expansion and full renovation in 2013, the rooms are decorated with contemporary furnishings while others boast the original fireplaces. No matter which room type you choose, you'll enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi access, armoires and desks. And if you want to see more of the building's original architectural elements, pay a visit to the Main Dining Room, which features Italian Carrera marble fireplaces, 10-foot gilded mirrors and floor-to-ceiling windows. Though the property celebrates its heritage, it also offers modern conveniences like an on-site fitness center, seasonal passes to an outdoor pool and valet-only parking (for an additional fee).

    The Darcy Washington DC, Curio Collection By Hilton

    1.17 miles away

    Washington DC, DC
    1.3 miles to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 595 reviewsTripAdvisor (595)

    The Darcy is located in Washington, D.C.'s Dupont Circle neighborhood, just a short walk from the 14th Street corridor's popular bars and restaurants. Previous travelers appreciated its slightly removed locale, which made for quieter nights and great sleep, and the modern (albeit tiny) accommodations. Each room and suite feature white, brown and gray tones (with colorful accents throughout), plus a flat-screen TV, a minibar, a Bluetooth sound system and free Wi-Fi access. However, no coffee makers are provided, which frustrated some guests. Outside the rooms, lodgers have access to complimentary bike rentals, a fitness room and free evening cocktails at 5:30. Families will appreciate the hotel's kids program, which allows children to check out a backpack filled with clues for a scavenger hunt through the city. Once the mission is completed, they can return the pack for a surprise gift. After working up an appetite, visitors can sit down for a seafood-centric meal at Siren Restaurant or ask the concierge for a nearby recommendation. For those looking for a quick morning coffee, there is an on-site cafe. Because the hotel is part of the Hilton portfolio, Hilton Honors members can earn or redeem points here.

Neighborhoods in Howard University

Washington, D.C., is laid out on a grid pattern, with numbered and lettered streets intersected by diagonal avenues. Most of these diagonal avenues are named after states. Generally, streets running east to west have lettered names in alphabetical order as you travel north. So you would walk north to get from K Street Northwest to L Street Northwest. The numbered streets run north to south and increase as you travel west in Northwest D.C. and as you travel east in Northeast D.C. Therefore, you would walk west to get from 19th Street Northwest to 20th Street Northwest; you would walk east to get from 11th Street Northeast to 12th Street Northeast.
