  • How long should you stay? KAYAK users usually book their accommodation in Washington, D.C. for 3 days.
  • Many neighborhoods in DC are spread out, so it is better to book a hotel in the general downtown area specifically near a metro stop, such as The Westin, than to insist on staying right by the Mall, which is home to Washington’s iconic monuments.
  • If you are traveling with your family and will need more than two beds, make sure to specify with the hotel ahead of time. Hotel rooms in Washington generally do not have space for roll-away beds for children. For large groups, it might be best to look at hotels with suites, like the Embassy Suites by Hilton at the Georgetown location.
  • Tours usually leave very early in the morning, so it might help to select a hotel that offers a buffet breakfast for a quick start to your day. The Capitol Hill Hotel offers a quality, free breakfast and is only a block away from the metro.
  • Interested in staying in a charming local neighborhood that is still close to downtown? Book a hotel near Dupont Circle, such as The Embassy Row Hotel. This area features DC’s famous colorful row houses, and it has a large selection of both chain and boutique hotels. It’s also within short walking distance of the White House and other famous monuments.
  • DC is not a particularly large city, and when it fills up for events, conventions, and festivals, such as the Cherry Blossom Festival or a protest march, it becomes harder to find a hotel, use the metro, or make a restaurant reservation, particularly downtown. However, if you book in advance, you shouldn’t have any problems.
