There’s no need to spend precious vacation time stuck in traffic when so many of DC’s legendary sites — the White House, the National Mall, the Lincoln Memorial — are within walking distance of downtown’s finest hotels. Not only that, but the DC Metro is one of the safest, smoothest-running transportation systems in the country. Fortunately, these hotels come with a piece of DC’s most valuable real estate — the parking space — leaving you free to park up roam the capital city on foot or by metro.

The average room in this micro-hotel tops out at 150sqft (14sqm), but there’s no shortage of style. The clever space-saving design, minimalist furniture and white-on-white color scheme – with strategic touches of blue or gold – feel clean and restful. Get productive in the Commons, a hip co-working space adjacent to the Crimson Diner, which serves breakfast all day long. The Motto’s three-venue gastro-plex also includes the Crimson Whiskey Bar, where you can sample 150 types of bourbon, and the Crimson View, a rooftop bar with views of the Washington Monument.

From plush velvet sofas and Persian rugs, to tribal-print throw pillows, this West End hotel is the epitome of boho chic. Start your day with a yoga class in the plant-filled courtyard. Hang out in the “living room”, an inviting open-concept communal space that replaces a traditional lobby. Curl up with a book in one of the living room’s welcoming seating areas, or sidle up to the bar for a craft cocktail. Set the mood with a record from El Donut Shoppe, which sells new and used vinyl from its storefront off the living room.

Hyatt’s answer to the boutique hotel welcomes you in high Washingtonian style. From the moment you set foot in the lobby, your eyes are drawn to the floor-to-ceiling glass art installations, which showcase blown-up photographs of DC’s famous cherry trees in full bloom. The rooms and suites deliver all the luxury associated with the brand – limestone spa-style showers, 300-thread count sheets – plus American craft-y touches including Shaker-inspired chairs and quilted throw pillows.

This boutique hotel is as eclectic and inviting as the surrounding Dupont Circle neighborhood. The bold blue, grey and gold decor is luxe without taking itself too seriously. Where else would you see ornate, Victorian-style mirrors arranged around the pool area? In summer, the rooftop bar draws crowds to the city’s one-and-only silent disco night. Late-night munchies? Raid Embassy Row’s 24-hour chef’s pantry, stocked with freshly made pastries, sandwiches and snacks.

Dine beneath the coffered ceilings and crystal chandeliers of the Michelin-starred Plume restaurant, where the seasonal menu is inspired by Jefferson’s garden at Monticello in Charlottesville, Virginia.

    Close to, but a peaceful retreat from the happening bar and restaurant scene on 14th Street, this boutique hotel is aristocratic with a modern edge. The current management has transformed what used to be a chain hotel into a design showcase with double crown moldings, mosaic tile bathrooms and walls lined with original artwork. The decor is a mix of jazzy floral prints with regal wing-back chairs and crushed-velvet curtains. Nothing to wear to the ball? Rent or purchase attire, from pocket squares to cocktail gowns, from the Darcy’s haberdashery.

    Hotel Hive

    Independent Hotel
    4.5/5 (956 Reviews)
    Courtesy of Hotel Hive / Expedia
    DC’s original micro-hotel feels like a grown-up version of a hostel. Each of the tiny, immaculate rooms is unique, featuring framed artwork, exposed brick and beams, and clever quotes stenciled on walls and mirrors (“Objects in mirror may be sexier than they appear”). High ceilings, natural light and white walls make the 200-sqft (19-sqm) space feel cozy, not cramped. The community spaces are just as inviting. You won’t be able to resist pulling up a chair in front of the fireplace in the Hive lounge/library, or taking in the sunset from the rooftop bar.
