Our DC-area hotel serves as an Alexandria retreat
The capital’s air of importance and historical richness can be felt along its distinguished avenues and across the monument-lined Mall, as well as inside venues filled with worldly power players and suit-wearing politicos. City explorers relish sites from the Smithsonian Institution’s many (free!) museums, galleries, and National Zoo to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts (where a free performance happens every evening), the Newseum, Embassy Row, and, of course, that famous Pennsylvania Avenue mansion the president calls home. Thanks to the Metro system, public transportation effortlessly links commuters and sightseers to key destinations like Ronald Reagan National Airport (DCA) and downtown DC from our Alexandria digs (Kimpton Morrison House is just eight blocks from the King Street Metro station, which is on the same line as DCA).
