A convenient base for exploring the nation’s capital, just minutes from downtown on the nearby metro

Known as the American Rome, Washington, D.C. is home to some of the country’s most stunning architecture, deepest history and best museums. From the White House to the National Mall, the capital houses an incredible collection of dignified buildings and monuments that project power and command respect. It’s hard to know where to start, but thankfully for the diehard sightseer, many of the most iconic attractions are in the same neighborhood. Downtown D.C. is the seat of federal law and order, and it doubles as the center of the best-known city sights.

Just a short drive away is The Westin Arlington Gateway, a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning retreat with a Starbucks, a pool that opens on weekends and a state-of-the-art fitness studio – which you can enjoy while wearing sneakers and workout clothes from the gear-lending program. An Italian-inspired restaurant serves flatbreads and pizzas, and its bar and lounge whips up cocktails like the signature Westini. And when you're tired out from all that sightseeing in the high-powered American capital, recharging is as easy as hanging around the lobby. Here, you’ll find the rather unusual offering of a "vertical garden" plant wall, freshening the air, so you can literally take a breather.
