Home to Iconic Cultural Attractions

Located just two blocks from the country’s most notable residential address, AKA White House puts you close to many of the capital’s noteworthy commercial, governmental, and cultural institutions. Whether you’re looking forward to leisurely strolls through Farragut Square and leafy Lafayette Square, visiting the iconic Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial, or sampling the lively dining and nightlife of nearby Dupont Circle, this is right where you want to be.

Where to Eat in Washington, D.C.

There’s no shortage of exquisite restaurants to dine at in Washington, D.C., and AKA White House is situated near some of the best. Pay homage to French café culture at Le Diplomate, with classic French dishes, a thoughtfully curated wine list, and a tempting cocktail program. For New American cuisine, try Rose’s Luxury, a historic townhouse converted into a cozy restaurant. When you’re ready for a taste of D.C. history, head to Martin’s Tavern — said to have once hosted JFK and Jackie O., this eatery is known for its American classics, dark wooden bar, and stained-glass light fixtures. We also recommend the modern brasserie vibe of The Smith and the market-driven menu at Founding Farmers DC.

Washington, D.C. Museums and Art Galleries

Washington D.C.’s museums and art galleries are some of the most celebrated in the country — if not the world. Across the street from AKA White House, the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum was the first building in the United States built specifically to be an art museum. The beautiful 1858 structure, just steps from the White House, is a National historic landmark that exhibits American contemporary craft. Lining the nearby National Mall are the city’s most famous museums, from the National Gallery of Art to the Hirshhorn Museum, renowned for its works of modern and contemporary art.

A famously beautiful city, Washington, D.C.’s outdoor spaces are equally inspiring and relaxing. Take a walk down the National Mall from the United States Capitol Building to the Washington Monument to the Lincoln Memorial.
