"All of the guest rooms are large and well-appointed," says Fodor's. The hotel is one Metro stop from the National Mall and the Smithsonian Institute. The rest of the city is easily accessible by train, as the hotel sits above a Metro station.
Guests can dine at one of two restaurants on site, or take a dip in the rooftop pool before heading out to explore.
