Choosing a hotel for the holidays in D.C.

Many people travel for the holidays, and while it can be nice to stay with friends and family, sometimes that’s not an option or you need more room for a larger group. If you will be heading into the D.C. region in the next few weeks, there are a few things you should look for in the hotel you choose.

Location / convenience to D.C.

Many (but not all) of the area’s top holiday attractions are in the District itself. If you have a big itinerary of things to do in the city, consider how easy it is to get in and out of D.C. Hotels there tend to be expensive and sell out quickly, but you want to stay somewhere you can still access the city easily.


Once you actually get to the hotel, amenities are the most important part of your stay. Look for a place with top-quality bedding, bathrooms, and furniture. Some hotels also come with a complimentary breakfast bar, a great way to fuel up before you head out to hit the town for the holidays.


Price shouldn’t be the only factor that dicates the place you stay, but it does matter – after all, you have gifts to buy! Some hotels run specials during the holiday season, which will help you get a great price on your room. This is especially important if you are traveling with a big group and need multiple rooms.
