  • U Street corridor has become the hot spot for nightlife in D.C. in recent years. The main center of U street stretch from 15 street to 9 street (a block up and down of each street except more on 14). ...  more »
  • Relatively new area with several bars and restaurants but just average. Police presence, may I suggest that it should be an area to be excluded in the evening, not recommended

  • This isn't the best area of town. We found it to be quite dirty and sorta unsafe. We only came here to go to Ben's Chili Bowl.  more »

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.
