The Heart of the Action


Access it all from our central hotel in downtown DC

We sit on the pulse of the city, which — as the nation’s capital — happens to sit on the pulse of the country’s heartbeat. Needless to say, we feel lucky to call our Penn Quarter block home. Our boutique hotel can be found four blocks from the National Mall, five blocks from the Convention Center, and smack in the middle of some of the city’s most prominent law firms and government agencies. Our direct neighbors include the ever-bustling Verizon Center, the National Portrait Gallery, Chinatown, and the International Spy Museum, not to mention shopping, dining, and nightlife scenes that feature some of the city’s most sought-after venues, including the new and trending City Center DC. It’s easy to access public transportation from our front door, too; we’re less than one block from the Gallery Place/Chinatown Metro station (red, blue, and green lines) and five blocks from the Metro Center Metro station (orange and blue lines).


Our placement lands visitors near many of the Smithsonian’s 19 museums and galleries – all free and open every day of the year (except December 25).
