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.

  • Mr. Rex Tillerson is doing a great job. And so is Mr. James Applegate ( NK Desk). - Thanks. Gene
  • President Donald Trump has failed to pay my Federal Salary! And also provide secret service protection i could be murdered! I am Prince Maurcella on Instagram The First Son of President John F Kennedy...Please Help S.O.S.
  • Its 2017. Why do I have to go all the way back home to find my check book that I haven't used in years, dust it off, and come back to a local office so I can pay for a passport with a check. Get with the program. Figure out a way to accept cash or credit people.
  • My favorite tour in DC. The 8th floor is the reception rooms for foreign heads of state. Museum pieces at every turn from the table used at the signing of the treaty of Paris to original portraits of George Washington. Reserve through your congress person.
  • I went on a tour of the Diplomatic Reception Room recently. It was an overall nice experience. The reception room is very nice and has many wonderful artifacts. However, the tour ran a little dry at times. But it is a nice tour for anyone who is interested.
