Our hotel neighbors Smithsonian's treasures
Our guests arrive with a penchant for culture and an appetite for knowledge. That's why our placement near the National Mall couldn't be more appropriate, landing visitors close to many of the Smithsonian's 19 museums and galleries — nearly all of them free and open every day of the year except December 25. While the National Portrait Gallery is our across-the-street neighbor, the National Mall (just four, easy blocks away) houses the majority of other Smithsonian favorites, from the National Museum of American History and National Air and Space Museum to newer additions like the National Museum of the American Indian. Adults and kids alike delight in these highly educational and sensory experiences. To venture a bit farther afield, head to the city's beloved (free!) National Zoo.
