With so many landmarks and museums to visit in our nation's capital, picking a hotel may seem like another daunting task. Opt for the convenience of staying directly across from the White House, or embrace D.C.'s historic side by sleeping in a hotel with renovated rooms where Lincoln once lived, Coolidge governed, and Martin Luther King Jr. wrote.

No. 10 Hotel Monaco, DC

12 of 11

Construction on this property was completed in 1866 by Robert Mills, architect of the Washington Monument; before it was a hotel, it originally opened as the city’s first General Post Office. Since then, it has been deemed a National Historic Landmark, and was renovated by the Kimpton group in 2002. The marble four-story structure, located in Penn Square, contains 183 guestrooms, of which 14 are suites. This boutique property is pet-friendly, with complimentary Evian for dogs, water bowls, and maps of optimal local dog walks; or for those who left their pet at home, “guppy service” is offered, a goldfish brought to the room upon request.
