We loved our stay at this hotel everything was perfect! The only minor thing was the door on the bathroom as there was 3 adults sharing it wasnt very private but we managed.
The train station close by was a bonus. Was good spot to explore Washington DC. Room was a little small for the five of us (young family) but it did okay
Have you ever wanted to sneak into a White House party like that one reality television couple? On second thought, unless you want to wind up on all the tabloid sites, we don’t recommend that. Happily, there’s plenty of other fun stuff do in America’s capital. From touring fantastic museums to getting your spy on, staying at one of our Washington, D.C. hotels will have you so close to action, you won’t know where to start.
Tap into your inner 007—remember: shaken, not stirred—at the International Spy Museum. You’ll be able to assume a cover identity, train in classic espionage practices in the School for Spies exhibit and then hit the streets in the museum’s interactive “Spy in the City” game. After your cover is blown, make you way over to the National Mall, where the Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument and United States Capitol are lined up together. Toss a coin into the reflecting pool, but don’t go running into it like Jenny and Forrest—the ’60s are long gone.
Do you want a museum experience that’s a cut above the rest? The group of museums under the umbrella of the Smithsonian Institution will captivate you for hours (or even days if you’re feeling dedicated to history). Visit historic air and spacecraft like Charles Lindbergh’s Spirit of St. Louis and the Apollo 11 Command Module at the National Air and Space Museum. Come back down to earth at the National Museum of Natural History on the National Mall. Check out the National Gem and Mineral Collection and see how well your eyes can adjust to staring at the Hope Diamond.
There’s three major airports that serve the D.C. metro area: Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) and Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) are all within 50 km of downtown. Buses, taxis and even limousines are available to take you to the city centre and near accommodation in Washington, D.C. If you don’t want the hassle of flagging down cabs or cramming yourself into buses, book one of lastminute.com.au’s awesome car hire deals and zip around the beltway at your leisure.
The best time for Washington, D.C. holidays is all the time! If you find yourself in the district during springtime, check out the National Cherry Blossom Festival, when the National Mall looks like the trees were dipped in Pepto-Bismol. Summers are warm, but really, America’s capital is the only place you should be during the Fourth of July. Are you a winter person? D.C.’s winters are cold and snowy, but you can offset that with good times at the Russian Winter Festival and the numerous ice rinks throughout the city.
There’s something special about D.C., and it’s not just the cheap hotels in the District of Columbia. We want you to find out what it is for yourself. Don’t worry about dipping into your neck oil savings for this trip. Instead, browse lastminute.com.au’s great selection of hotels in Washington, D.C. and find the best one for you!
