Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

Once a center for conversations surrounding literature, art, science and politics, this historic apartment-hotel remains an important landmark of the D.C. area. John Hay, Abraham Lincoln’s personal secretary, and Henry Adams, historian and Harvard professor, once resided on the grounds where the current Italian Renaissance–style structure was later built in 1928. Now 145 exquisitely detailed rooms overlooking Lafayette Square allow visitors to reside across the street from POTUS during their stay. Dine on upscale American cuisine at The Lafayette, then grab a cocktail and rub shoulders with big political players at Off The Record. If you need to work off your indulgences, hit up the fully equipped fitness facility or take to the streets of D.C. on one of the hotel’s complimentary bicycles for a self-guided tour of the area’s popular sites. From $329
