The nation's capital has been infused with hip hotels over the past year. The Dupont Circle Hotel takes up some prime real estate within walking distance to trendy restaurants & shops, while the Hay-Adams overlooks historic Lafayette Square and the White House beyond. The Jefferson pays homage to our third president, recreating the style of his Monticello country estate. If you want to spot government power players, head to the roof of the Graham Georgetown. The best hotels in DC are truly diverse.
