It's a short stroll to the National Mall to visit our nation's most popular memorials, one block to The Wharf - a mile-long section of dining, shopping, and activity along the Potomac River - and a 15-minute walk to Capitol Hill.
Step into history at the incredible attractions within a mile of the hotel including the National Air and Space Museum, the National Gallery of Art, the Smithsonian Castle, and the Newseum.
Ride the DC Circulator for free - The EM-LP route (Eastern Market - L'Enfant Plaza) picks up right in front of the hotel and will take you to popular destinations like the Waterfront, the Navy Yard/Ballpark & Eastern Market.
