The Mansion on O Street

Your stay at The Mansion on O Street, a hotel-museum-boutique hybrid, will feel magical. This small luxury hotel is chock-full of secret passageways, hidden doors, and over 100 rooms to explore. Go on an Espionage Treasure Hunt, shop for furniture and fixtures, and engage with art of all kinds without ever leaving the hotel. Its Dupont Circle location allows for easy access to Capitol Hill attractions, such as the White House and Embassy Row.

Eaton D.C.

Innovation meets downtown D.C. Eaton D.C. offers a unique experience for travelers that focuses on inspiration, innovation, and impact. The Eaton D.C. subverts traditional hospitality expectations by going above-and-beyond to cultivate an environment that stimulates creative thought. Rooms feature mindful and interesting amenities, such as Himalayan salt lamps, a minibar stocked with sustainable, healthy snacks, and a collection of hand-selected rare and radical books. The personal atelier for an artist residency has a wall canvas that stretches over 12 feet.

The Watergate Hotel

Although the Watergate Hotel is infamously associated with the Nixon scandal, the hotel has carved a rightful name for itself with luxury amenities, stunning design, and a breathtaking view of the Potomac River. The Watergate Hotel has catered to hordes of actors, models, and entrepreneurs. The hotel has been controversial since its grand opening in 1965. At that time, its whimsical architecture stood out against the traditional neoclassical design of the city. After 50 years, the hotel has reemerged as an extravagant D.C. destination after the finalization of renovations in 2016, making it feel brand-new.

Swann House

This bed-and-breakfast in Dupont Circle charms guests from across the globe. Its undeniable Washington, D.C., luxury curb appeal is largely defined by its vibrant red exterior. The 1883 mansion has maintained its eclectic appeal, while updating rooms to provide travelers with Wi-Fi, flat-screen televisions, and whirlpool bathtubs. All stays include complimentary breakfasts, pool and patio access, and a short commute to some of the capital’s most notable tourist spots.

The Mayflower Hotel, Autograph Collection

The Mayflower Hotel is both Washington, D.C.’s, oldest hotel and the largest luxury hotel in the city. The hotel opened its doors over 90 years ago in 1925, thus making a stay at this hotel a walk through history itself. The hotel has earned a spot on the National Register of Historic Places; it hosted a memorable dinner in the Chinese Room for Prime Minister Winston Churchill and President Franklin Roosevelt, and it frequently served FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover at the onsite Carvery Restaurant and Coffee Shop. However, despite its rich history, the Mayflower Hotel’s recent acquisition by Marriott ensures that guests will have access to the highest-quality modern amenities as well. For history buffs seeking a luxurious getaway, there is no better place for a weekend stay.
