Fodor's Review

The venue of inaugural balls since its opening in 1930, this elegant landmark overlooking Rock Creek Park has welcomed heads of state and celebs like The Beatles, and is still luring guests with light-filled guest rooms. Lovingly tended and aging gracefully, its rooms, many of which are larger than typical, are done in a soothing garden palette and equipped with small but snazzy marble bathrooms. There is even a resident ghost, said to haunt suite 870. The vast lobby is

in art deco and Renaissance style. Families will love the kiddie pool, bird-watching, bike rentals, cookie treats, and movie nights. Extra effort is made to care for guests' special requests, and the excellent location means easy walks to restaurants and Adams Morgan.
