The unique Kimpton Hotels boutique style is typified at the Donovan, where the guest rooms, each with a touch of the minimalist, provide comfortable accommodation with all the standard amenities you would expect. When you’re not out sightseeing, the ‘Zentan’ restaurant will delight with its Asian specialities, and if you need a spot of relaxation, take a dip in the rooftop pool, followed by a cocktail in the adjacent lounge. The Donovan’s location puts you just steps from the bustling shops, galleries, bars and restaurants of 14th Street. A little further, but still within walking distance, are Dupont Circle, the White House and the Metro, which will transport you to all parts of the capital city.
Having hosted every president’s inaugural ball from
Franklin D Roosevelt to Barack Obama, it is little wonder that the Omni Shoreham has become something of a landmark. Located in picturesque Rock Creek Park in Northwest Washington, highlights such as the White House, Lincoln Memorial and the National Zoo are all within easy reach. 834 spacious bedrooms and suites afford modern conveniences and fabulous views of the city, whilst for dining, ‘Robert’s’ serves casually elegant breakfast, lunch and dinner, and if you’re raring to get out and see the sights, ‘Morsel’s’ does what it says on the tin. If time allows, unwind in the outdoor pool or treat yourself to a facial or massage in the hotel’s soothing spa.
The Embassy Row boutique hotel is literally a stone’s throw from Dupont Circle and as the name suggests, has as its neighbours a number of historical embassies. This area in Northwest Washington is rich in entertainment, nightlife and dining, and with the Metro Station on its doorstep, a stay at the Embassy Row will optimise your time in the city. Inside the hotel, you will find each bedroom and suite furnished with all the necessities, a restaurant offering 24-hour room service, a cocktail lounge, fitness centre and rooftop terrace and outdoor pool, from where a casual drink in the covered lounge is accompanied by magnificent views over the city.
With over 1,000 rooms, the Washington Hilton is the capital’s third largest hotel, presenting guests with not only a wide choice of accommodation but also an extensive range of facilities. The ‘District Line’ restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch, check out ‘TDL Bar’ for cocktails and dinner, and for a lively end to the evening, call in at McClellan’s Sports Bar. A well equipped health club and indoor pool provide exercise options, and in the summer months, there’s the added bonus of an outdoor pool with children’s wading pool.
The Washington Hilton’s location near Dupont Circle means that you’ll be just 12 blocks from the White House and about a mile from the National Zoo.
