There’s more to Washington D.C. than it just being our nation’s capital, although that in itself is a great reason to visit. See The Whitehouse, National monuments and sites that are significant symbols to our country. But on the other side, many unique neighborhoods weave through D.C., offering an artisanal food scene, the best craft cocktails that may ever touch your lips, and luxe accommodations you may not want to leave. If that’s the case, an in-room kitchen could prove very useful, so we’ve rounded up the best hotels that offer that very feature.
