It’s tough to believe that what is perhaps the world’s most famous hotel, which underwent a stunning $200 million renovation and re-opened in 2016, is relatively affordable. All it takes is one gander at these luxurious, ’60s-inspired rooms designed to make you feel like you’re floating on a yacht in the Potomac River to know that the $200-per-night price is a steal. Guests can use the well-equipped fitness room and the gorgeous indoor pool, sauna, whirlpool and unisex steam room found on the same level as the spa, which offers massages, facials and a nail salon. The hotel allows pets who are 50 pounds or lighter.
Time Out tip: It would be a crime to leave the property without heading up to the rooftop bar, Top of the Gate, to drink in the view and a few cocktails, of course.
