Reside in the White House power zone
Sitting on the pulse of the capital beat means we count the president among our neighbors. (And occasionally getting caught in his motorcade traffic is an “inconvenience” that never gets old.) Our hotel is a 15-minute walk from that famous Pennsylvania address, and its adjacent Lafayette Square proves a great place to people watch or enjoy a picnic lunch picked up along the way. Our proximity to the McPherson Square Metro station also puts all of the Smithsonian museums and most of the city’s iconic buildings and monuments at your fingertips. Sure, you can easily hop in a taxi or Uber, too, but walkers will be pleasantly surprised to find their temporary home in a highly pedestrian-friendly zone.
