Welcome to our New Blog Covering DC’s Best Hotels!

The Hay-Adams

Welcome to Best Hotels of Washington, DC — a new blog which will aggregate articles submitted directly by hoteliers across our city.  We’ll also be featuring some insider tips from many of DC’s best independent bloggers such as Pamela’s Punch, Deacon Does DC and K Street Kate. We intend to cover both the established great hotels of DC like The Hay-Adams, The Madison and The Willard, but we will also be providing coverage on many of the up-and-comers such as the new W hotel on 15th St, The Sofitel just down the block from there and The Lorien Hotel & Spa in Alexandria.  We intend to include articles about some of the fine hotels surrounding our area such as The Goodstone Inn & Estate in nearby Middleburg, VA – just right for a weekend excursion.  We’ll also be covering great conference retreats such as The Inn at Perry Cabin in St. Michaels and Keswick in Charlottesville.

We love great hotels and look forward to introducing our readers to many of the best destinations in our nation’s capital.  Our founder, Cal Simmons, has been covering fine hotels for over 30 years and looks forward to sharing his expertise.   We would love to hear from you, so please feel free to send us your thoughts, recommendations and any ideas for articles!
