Overview

Guests love the modern design and restoration of this Washington staple
Room rates can be pricey

One of the most infamous hotels in the country has been restored to its former glory in the District of Columbia after a $125 million renovation. Blending modern details (decor is sleek and chic) while embracing its storied past (guest room key cards read "No need to break in"), the Watergate Hotel reopened in June 2016. The hotel is set in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood, putting guests close to shopping and dining in Georgetown; the monuments and museums that line the National Mall are also just 1 mile away. On-site, travelers have access to a 12,500-square-foot wellness center with spa services, an indoor pool and a fitness center. The property also boasts The Next Whisky Bar (a visitor favorite for its amber-hued wall of whiskey and extensive selection) and the Kingbird restaurant. But perhaps one of the best parts of this hotel is the Top of the Gate rooftop bar and lounge that offers sweeping views of the Potomac River and downtown Washington. Meanwhile, the hotel's 336 accommodations are outfitted in neutral tones of white, mocha and charcoal, and they feature flat-screen TVs, minibars and marble bathrooms. What's more, recent guests lauded the impeccable design and the friendly staff at this property, though a stay here is quite expensive.
