With endless shopping, decadent places to dine, and the scenic Georgetown Waterfront Park with views out to the Potomac, a visit to Georgetown is unmissable on a trip to America’s capital. Whether you’re looking for history, luxury, or comfort, here are the top hotels in Greorgetown, Washington DC.
An international collection of flags flutter above the Fairmont entrance, your first indication that this luxury hotel in Georgetown has world appeal. No better is that seen than in the lobby lounge, a marbled relaxation space with a cocktail bar – order the BeeTini, made with honey from the bees that live on the roof. The 413 rooms and suites are predictably stylish, all clean lined and with contemporary decor. The theme continues down in the Juniper Restaurant, which plates modern, American dishes.
Built as a storage facility in the 1830s, over the years the Georgetown House has been a tavern and a stable for horses and mules. Now, it’s a charming boutique hotel in Georgetown – although its history is still seen in its quaint rooms, wooden flooring, and the balcony peering over the canal. The rooms are understated, but are all ensuite and have air conditioning. Days are best spent here wandering by the canal, dipping into the numerous nearby restaurants.
When you want a reliable, comfortable place to crash, the Westin is a sure bet. The 267 rooms and suites at this Georgetown hotel come with signature beds and bath amenities. For opulence, book the Presidential Suite – which boasts its own in-room billiards table. A shaded outdoor lap pool is open seasonally, and there’s a well-stocked gym with Peloton bikes. When it’s time to explore, the nearby Foggy Bottom Metro will whisk you off to the National Mall and the Smithsonian Museums and Zoo.
