A Visual Treat: Interior Design

As you enter the Viceroy DC, you’ll immediately fall in love with its stunning blend of modern and vintage design elements that sets it apart from other hotels in the area.

The warm and inviting atmosphere of the hotel works so well for a romantic getaway in Washington DC.

Cozy Comfort: Rooms

The Viceroy DC offers an array of room options, including luxurious studios with spa baths and spacious rooms featuring two queen beds.

You’ll find it difficult to leave the ultra-comfy beds, but there’s a world of adventure waiting just outside your door!

Service with a Smile: Staff

Expect nothing less than exceptional service at the Viceroy DC, always very friendly, attentive, and always there to help out.

From the front desk to the housekeeping team, every interaction will leave you feeling well taken care of.

A Fresh Start: Breakfast

Although the hotel’s breakfast options may not be extensive, the lobby café provides a convenient spot to grab a quick morning bite before embarking on your day of exploration.

Culinary Delights: Dining

The Dovetail is the in-house restaurant of the hotel, which is visited by locals too, giving a positive assurance on the experience you can actually have there, both in quality and service too.

I will talk more about the location in the next heading, however, a short note here to say that you’re also just a short walk away from a great selection of fantastic dining options. No matter your craving, there’s a nearby restaurant to satisfy it.

Prime Spot: Location

Situated between Downtown, Logan Circle, and Dupont Circle, the Viceroy DC serves as the perfect base for a Washington DC itinerary.

You will be within walking distance of the White House and the Renwick Gallery.

Add 500 yards and you will be a Capitol Hill. Not fancy about walking? Take the Metrorail from McPherson Square Station (2 stops).

As already mentioned, you will be also in a prime spot for restaurants, bars, and nightlife options.

Extra Perks

The rooftop bar and pool are simply divine, offering a tranquil oasis with jaw-dropping views of the city.

Plus, if you’re traveling with your furry companion, Viceroy DC is dog-friendly!

Room for Improvement

No place is perfect, and the Viceroy DC is no exception. The showers could use better water pressure, and the lack of coffee machines in the rooms might be disappointing for some.

The gym is also on the smaller side, but with an entire city to explore, you won’t miss it too much!

In Conclusion

In a nutshell, Viceroy is a top pick for couples seeking a great place to stay in Washington DC for a boutique experience.

Its chic design, comfortable rooms, welcoming staff, and excellent location will ensure you have an unforgettable stay. 

The pool is a great extra perk on those hot days.
