There are over 400 hotels in the Washington DC area. In order to find the 32 Best Washington DC Hotels I looked at many professional and traveler reviews of Washington DC Hotels and also weighed in my opinion since I did live in Washington DC for 3 years. First you might want to decide what part of the city you want to be in. Do you want to stay in Georgetown, West End, Adams Morgan, the Mall area, etc. Below I have a map of the major neighborhoods in the District of Columbia. If you want to see the National Mall with all the museums and memorials then you might want to stay in Southwest DC that is within walking distance of all the sites. DC has a great metro subway system that is easy to use. Most tourist places in DC are near Metro Stations so check with your hotel or look on a map to see if the Washington DC hotel you are interested in is near a Metro Station. I always find it is useful to check a hotel’s webpage directly before booking to see if they have any specific deals going on. At the bottom on this page I have weblinks to all the Best Washington DC Hotels that I mention in this article. Have a great time in Washington DC. I enjoy visiting Washington DC at least once a year myself.
