3 Great Hotels for a Weekend in Washington, DC

at a hotel

We love living in apartments in Fort Washington, MD for so many reasons. We especially love that River Pointe Apartments are located in such close proximity to our nation’s capital. But while it’s great having all the history and culture of the District of Columbia nearby, sometimes it’s nice to explore the city as a tourist for once. Booking a luxurious stay in a swanky D.C. hotel is a great way to see the capital anew, not to mention reap all the benefits of a vacation without any of the hassles of travel. Here are a few of our favorite D.C. hotels:

Mandarin Oriental Washington D.C.

For five-star service at a gorgeous urban oasis, Mandarin Oriental Washington D.C. is a natural choice. Conveniently located on the Southwest Waterfront just a block from the National Mall, this D.C. treasure makes it easy to explore the capital’s most popular tourist sites. After a hard day touring the city, recover with a luxury treatment at their elegant spa.

Hotel Hive

More hip than high-end, the trendy Hotel Hive is perfect for those looking for a cool and contemporary hotel experience without a luxury price tag. Their minimalist design and clever, efficient architecture will delight. One of the best features of this hotel is a rooftop bar and lounge that is perfect for seeing the city at night. We also love that they’re pet-friendly so you don’t have to leave your best bud at home!

The Jefferson

For a more classic D.C. take on luxury, look no further than The Jefferson. This sophisticated hotel is known for its world-class service and exquisite furnishings. You’ll enjoy mouthwatering and innovative Michelin-starred cuisine at Plume but you’ll also love stopping for coffee and breakfast at The Greenhouse in the morning. This hotel is fit for royalty and that’s how you’ll feel if you book a getaway here!

Of course, there are so many things to do in Fort Washington, MD, too, like the events and activities highlighted on our blog. If you’re thinking River Pointe Apartments might be perfect for you, contact us to set up a tour today!
