DC’s Most Coveted Corridor

A Hotel on Happening 14th Street

Enjoy our hotel in the midst of 14th Street magic

Once upon a time, jazz greats like Duke Ellington filled venues on and along 14th Street NW with their sweet, sultry sounds. The area has been through many iterations since then. In recent decades, however, 14th Street Northwest has seen great change, evolving into a spruced-up, hipper, more populated version of its former self. Most Washingtonians agree that this corridor is now the place to be, and making reservations can be necessary on bustling weekend nights. Visitors and residents soak in the rich history and stunning architecture as they explore the latest buzz-worthy bars, boutiques, theaters, and eateries.

Some nearby hot spots include:
