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 Capital One Arena, the National Portrait Gallery, and Chinatown, not to mention shopping, dining, and nightlife scenes that feature some of the city's most sought-after venues including 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).

Things To Do

Our Penn Quarter property is in a central location embedded in the capital action. Surrounded by some of the city’s most coveted shops, and restaurants, we’re also just steps away from the National Mall and Smithsonian Museums.
