Chalk it up to lingering Obamania: A visit to Washington, D.C. is an increasingly popular pilgrimage, especially for those looking for a vacation that packs a punch without pinching their wallet. Excellent public transport cuts on car rentals, most museums are free (you could spend a week in the Smithsonian alone), and thanks to government power brokers, dining options are superb and plentiful . . . and cocktail culture is thriving.
Now, thanks to a new promotion offered by Destination D.C. (the official D.C. tourism site) and Travel + Leisure, summertime in the nation’s capital is an even smarter choice. Book three or more nights with their Staying Power promotion and receive a free Flip Mino digital camcorder in addition to a 30% savings off the entire stay.
Participants include many of the city’s top hotels, such as The Hay-Adams, L’Enfant Plaza Hotel, Carlyle Suites, Georgetown Suites, and The Eldon Luxury Suites, as well as other Kimpton, Affinia, and Marriott properties spread 'round town. Rates start as low as $76 per night after discount, and a last-minute booking for this weekend saw rooms at the trendy Hotel Palomar going for $111. “Book a Trip, Get a Flip” promotion packages must include a Friday or Sunday stay and be booked by August 31.
