Top tips for finding the perfect Washington hotel

When looking for a hotel near the White House, consider the DC downtown neighbourhood. Here you will also be close to the Washington Monument, the Library of Congress and the various Smithsonian Museums.
For a 5-star break in the capital city, check out Georgetown, a historic neighbourhood a short bus ride away from Washington’s main attractions. Here you will find luxurious hotels like the Four Seasons Hotel Washington DC and the Rosewood Washington DC.
If you’re looking for a hotel near Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, take a look at the Crystal City area, which will also put you in close proximity to the Pentagon.
Two good options near Reagan Airport include The Westin Crystal City, near the Crystal City metro station, and the Residence Inn by Marriott Arlington Pentagon City.
Despite being the capital of the United States of America, Washington DC is actually quite small and well connected by its metro system. When travelling on a budget, look outside the I-495 ring road.
Hampton Inn & Suites Alexandria Old Town Area South offers good deals in Alexandria to the south, or Best Western Capital Beltway to the west is rated as a good business hotel. Both are about a 20 minute drive into the city.
