Wherever you roam, Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill is the perfect place to begin your adventures. From our hotel, stroll on Capitol Hill and start with a tour of the U.S. Capitol Building. Next, visit the Smithsonian museums, stop for a photo op in front of the White House, root for the home team at the Washington Nationals game, or make a reservation at one of D.C.’s top-ranked restaurants (take our word and Michelin’s—there are many). When in Washington, D.C., the city is best experienced from the heart of all that history and more.
Despite the name, this famed D.C. destination isn’t a shopping center, but an impressive assemblage of memorials honoring Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Martin Luther King Jr., and veterans, with each of the tall structures lined along a grassy space.
While you’re spending a morning touring the sights of D.C., stop for a quick dose of sugar at this charming bakery, which offers highly creative flavors (think brown butter, cherry pie, and baklava), alongside more traditional varieties of doughnuts from a rotating menu.
