  • It’s worth a quick trip to Chinatown if you’re in the DC area. Very close to Metro Center and Judiciary Square metro stops. Take a walk to the arch, enjoy a meal at a restaurant or do a little shoppin...  more »
  • Cool place to explore. Chinatown is shrinking. Good eats and shops. There is a metro stop and it is close...walking distance to the convention center.  more »

  • Love the authentic atmosphere, shops & food. Also I was surprise in how clean and safe it was. Went with a group of friends but would defiantly go back with my family for a family trip.
  • I was expecting to experience Chinatown similar to NY or San Francisco. Huge disappointment as there weren't any of the traditional shops and restaurants - only the gate over the road. It is my understanding the businesses were closed to accommodate the convention center.
  • I loved it, it was easy to get to and the metro was so much more simple vs. Driving in. All the shops and street music made it very interesting and the food was delicious too!
  • Great times, sight seeing & good restaurants choices...

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.
