Whether you prefer art-filled Airbnbs or storied properties, one thing’s for certain: You’re spoiled for choice in DC. From the historic facades of Capitol Hill and the U Street Corridor to the trendy boutiques lining the cobblestone streets of Georgetown and the Wharf, DC is home to a distinct collection of diverse neighborhoods.

Here are some DC hotels worth checking in to on your next trip to the nation’s capital:

Lyle DC

Set in the heart of DC’s vibrant Dupont Circle neighborhood, Lyle DC is all about convenience. It’s an eight-minute walk to the nearest Metro station, and, if you happen to be visiting when the weather’s nice, the National Mall is a casual 2-mile (3km) stroll away.

Housed in a quintessential 1940s art-deco building, the chic, neutral-toned rooms feature stunning burl wood headboards and bespoke rattan furnishings. Longer-term guests can opt for upgraded rooms, which offer kitchenettes and enviable city views.

Though Dupont Circle abounds with restaurants and bars, guests who want to experience the district’s eclectic dining scene don’t have to stray too far; Lyle’s, the on-site restaurant, features seasonal new American fare available for breakfast, brunch, and dinner.

Designed with the socially conscious in mind, Eaton DC offers discerning travelers more than just a comfortable night’s sleep in the district.

Everything at this progressive downtown DC hotel serves a purpose, including the sustainably sourced minibar options in each of the thoughtfully decorated rooms and the property’s carefully curated library, which has books on innovation, activism, gender, race, and more.

After a day spent exploring on foot, be sure to book a spa day at Eaton’s wellness center. In addition to infrared sauna sessions, there are several New Age practices on offer, including qigong workshops, plant-based sound baths, and movement meditations.
