Expert Review

In March 2008, the much-loved Thompson Hotels chain (best known for their New York and L.A. properties), debuted this 193-room boutique hotel in D.C. In just a short time, the hotel has earned rave reviews for its fashionable minimalist design and reasonable rates (rooms go for around $270 per night in peak season). Shades of eggplant and olive complement the dark wood-furnished interiors; cool in-room amenities include free WiFi, bath products by Kiehl's, and a Dean & Deluca-stocked minibar. Futuristic cocoon spiral showers grace queen superior rooms, and a rooftop pool provides aquatic entertainment with a view over the city. Conveniently located within walking distance of the White House (a leisurely 10-15 minutes on foot), it's an excellent midrange option for both business and leisure travelers.
