    The Willard InterContinental
    Washington, DC
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    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 inside 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.

    The Westin Washington, D.C. City Center
    Washington, DC
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1839 reviewsTripAdvisor (1839)

    The Westin Washington, D.C. City Center boasts a convenient location, just as its name implies. But recent visitors claim you'll pay a pretty penny for the privilege of walking to the sites. Business travelers don't seem to mind, however, citing this Westin's full-service business center, in-room internet (for a fee) and proximity to the convention center as assets. Sightseers might be deterred by the high price tag, but keep in mind that exciting Dupont Circle is within easy reach, as are the iconic monuments and Smithsonian Museums. And after a long day of exploration, you can refuel at Fringetree restaurant before retiring to your spacious accommodations, furnished with signature Westin amenities like Heavenly Beds, coffee makers and deluxe bath products. Although some previous visitors say the rooms could still use a facelift, others report a restful night's sleep thanks to Westin's plush pillows and linens. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 643 reviewsTripAdvisor (643)

    Sitting along the Maryland side of the Potomac River at the Washington National Harbor complex (about 10 miles south of D.C.), the Westin Washington National Harbor offers guests a more relaxing stay than they would find at a hotel in the bustling city. While it may not be as glamorous as its neighbor, the Gaylord National Hotel & Convention Center, the Westin makes as an excellent choice for business travelers looking to avoid the family-friendly kitsch factor. The hotel also serves as a popular convention spot, with an on-site business center that makes meeting deadlines easy. Plus, guests say that the pool, fitness center and contemporary Sauciety American Grill are great for unwinding after a long day. When you're ready to turn in, you'll find your accommodations appointed with amenities like Westin's signature Heavenly bath and bed products and sleek flat-screen TVs. Plus, Fido will be happy to snooze on his Westin's custom Heavenly dog bed. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    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.
