To find The Churchill Hotel on Connecticut Avenue, look for the elegant, cream-colored Beaux Arts building that could easily pass as one of the row’s many opulent apartment complexes. That was the idea when the landmark opened in 1906, with owners who wanted “the restful quietude and exclusiveness of a private residence" (Historic Hotels of America).
The lobby is bedecked with chandeliers and plaster paneling, while rooms are simpler in traditional tones, neither screamingly modern nor overtly antique. Since they were laid out a century ago, the room sizes tend to be more generous than D.C.’s average, some with three-sided bay windows, and all have free Wi-Fi.
The hotel is on the north side of Dupont Circle, one of Washington, D.C.’s most fashionable neighborhoods. There are streets and streets of trendy bars, gourmet bistros and art galleries, oftentimes filling the ground floor of a historic row house. Dupont Circle’s namesake park and metro station are less than a half-mile down the road.
The neighborhood to the west is Kalorama, a leafy, peaceful district that houses many of D.C.’s long-time lodgers in grand, colonial mansions. Many ambassadors call this neighborhood home, as it makes for a quick commute to the area’s collection of embassies.
Explore all of what the Capital City has to offer with top attractions like award-winning wineries and historic Potomac river cruises to fine-dining experiences just steps from The White House.
