    A great place to walk around to see some really interesting Federal architecture. If you drive by it every day, you tend not to notice the details, but walk around and take a look up toward the tops o...  more »

    Must see site, when you get to the top of the hill the vastness of the landscape just takes your breath away. Also compare to Ottawa, it makes Parliament Hill looks like a country home.  more »

    We visited on a Sunday which meant it was closed. I recommend visiting during the week. It is a really beautiful structure at the end of the mall!  more »

    great convenient location. decent rooms with fancy light fixtures, but no frills. strange lack of mini-fridge. noisy rooms that are slightly dirty around the edges. booked a room with a king bed and got 2 queen beds, despite asking for this to be fixed.... so service was iffy. unavoidable resort fees :(

    So as a hotel you would think their priority would be a good night's sleep especially with the amount of money they charge... yet you can hear the roof top club music from over four floors below... I'm sorry did I book to sleep at a hotel or a club? This place needs to prioritize their customers needs... oh and our sink isn't even draining....

    Great place to stay. Down the street from Union Station and the Capital Lots of restaurants in the area. Small pool but nice lounge area. The ladies at the bar were great and I enjoyed my drinks Room is average and quite but no view except the roof of the building, Windows to other rooms and office building window view Overall I would stay again

    Great location close to Union Station and the Capitol. Friendly staff and clean, spacious rooms. Really nice soap/shampoo and free bottled water! It's difficult to get really cold water from the faucet, however, and it would be nice with a fridge in the room.

    It was a good stay. Rooms are clean and quiet. Well maintained. Had a few minor issues like dead battery in safe and no regular coffee but they were all resolved quickly. Staff is friendly and professional. Kudos to HSK/Merci.

Where to stay in Washington DC

Most visitors to Washington, D.C., end up in the East End, the old downtown district containing most of the city's major cultural attractions. For a more authentic Washingtonian experience, consider staying at a smaller hotel just a little north or east of this busy area. Neighborhoods outside downtown offer less expensive accommodations and affordable street parking, as well as opportunities to meet more locals and fewer tourists. Alternatively, try a hotel in Georgetown, packed with high-end shops and Colonial architecture.
