“3 Sophisticated (Family-Friendly!) Hotels under $200: Washington D.C” by Josey Miller

From the National Zoo to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, the Lincoln Memorial, Reflecting Pool and beyond, Washington D.C. is the land of the free… tourist attractions! But, because it’s a destination geared in many ways towards business travelers, even dignitaries, reasonably priced rooms can be difficult to find. Here’s the good news: In business-centric cities such as D.C., the rates drop drastically on the weekends—when you and your family will most likely visit. Here are our top picks for sophisticated, but family-friendly Washington D.C. hotels to use as your home base:

  1. Carlyle Suites Hotel (from $99/night)

    Located in Dupont Circle, the art deco Carlyle Suites Hotel offers family-friendly amenities galore, from free WiFi and HD flat-screen TVs, to on-site, coin-operated laundry facilities and full kitchens. There’s even a Safeway supermarket nearby. Moms and dads will appreciate the free membership to Washington Sports Club and in-room gourmet coffee makers. And we’re also impressed with the eco-friendly bath products.

  2. One Washington Circle Hotel (from $199)

    The staff at One Washington Circle Hotel is eager to help its guests maximize their time in D.C. And, when the weather cooperates, you can finish off a day of sightseeing with a dip in their seasonal outdoor pool. This recently redesigned luxury boutique hotel is a quick stroll to the nearest Metro station and a healthier walk to downtown and Georgetown. Most rooms have full kitchens and even a second bathroom. (Read: No fighting for mirror time!)

  3. Capitol Hill Suites (from $119/night)

    Eco-chic Capitol Hill Suites prides itself on being classy, yet comfy—what a combo! Families love their free continental breakfasts and spacious guestrooms with full kitchens or kitchenettes. And, besides their HD flat-screen TVs, DVD players and MP3 clock radios, the highlight of this hotel is their location: The U.S. Supreme Court is a mere three blocks away and the Library of Congress is practically across the street.
