It's time to start gearing up for Labor Day weekend, and since this holiday is a celebration of our nation's history, we thought what better way to celebrate than with a weekend getaway to Washington D.C. Our capital is a great destination for a short break, with plenty to see and do, including the Smithsonian, Pentagon, White House, Lincoln Memorial, and plenty of other historically significant sights.
So we picked our top five money-saving hotel deals to Washington D.C. with accommodations varying from business class to boutique. With prices from as low as $75 per night, there's a hotel for every budget.
Spend Labor Day Weekend in Washington D.C.'s "Old City" in the historic neighborhood of Dupont Circle. The property was built in 1906 for the then-staggering cost of $200,000, and has played host to dignitaries from around the world. This deal includes an upgrade to a Junior King Suite, which includes a private study with a writing desk and floor to ceiling windows with views across the city. Prices start from $297, a low by $99. Book by August 25 for travel on August 29.
This stylish hotel is centrally positioned on Dupont Circle and overlooks the elegant residential rowhouses along Q Street. But the highlight of this hotel is the rooftop terrace with its 360-degree views of the city. The terrace has a covered lounge, small pool, teak deck chairs, and a bar with locally inspired cocktails - making this an ideal place to cool off at the end of the day and sip a "DC Sidecar" (bourbon, cointreau, and lemon juice) as the sun goes down. Prices start from $190, a low by $64. Book this travel deal by August 25 for travel on August 29.
If you're flying into DC's Washington Dulles International Airport, you may find it more convenient to stay at the Westin Washington Dulles Airport. This hotel is located one mile from the airport and it's a 30 minute drive to the city center. This deal includes free parking as well as a free airport shuttle. Prices start from $240. Book this travel deal by August 25 for travel on August 29.
This downtown hotel is centrally located in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. This deal includes a 462-square-foot Deluxe King room, but note that WiFi is only free in public spaces like the lobby. Or maybe that's just the push you need to PUT YOUR PHONE DOWN for the weekend and disconnect from the rat race. Relax, re-learn your kids' names (not just their twitter handles), and soak up some of the culture and history of our nation's capital city... you can Instagram it when you get home! Rates start at $297, a low by $34. Book this travel deal by August 25 for travel on August 29.
If you can only spare one night for your Labor Day getaway, check-in to this boutique hotel in Capitol Hill. It is tucked away amongst the charming brick rowhouses of a residential neighborhood, but still only a stroll away from Washington's major sites, including the Capitol Building, Library of Congress, and the National Mall. Plus, this deal includes free WiFi and complimentary daily breakfast. Prices start from $111.20 per night, a low by $7. Book this travel deal by August 25 for stays on August 29.
