Your Guide to an Extended Stay in Washington, DC

If you’re planning an extended stay in Washington, DC, then you’ll want to do everything you can to make yourself feel comfortable, even while you’re away. Whether you’re in Washington, DC for a short-term project, remote work, need short-term housing before a move, or simply want to explore the city for an extended period of time, Capitol Hill Hotel is your home away from home. Your new DC hub gives you a vibrant, refreshing experience, located in the heart of the city. With our recently renovated rooms and lush amenities, it has been designed to give you the peace of mind and comforts you tend to miss about your own place. Here are our favorite tips and tricks to make your extended stay as amazing as possible.

Premium Accommodations on the Hill

First and foremost, it’s important to choose the right room for your needs. The city has a life of its own with plenty of exciting avenues to explore, so it’s important to choose a cozy, comfortable room where you can recharge. Even if you have a style of room you always go for when you travel, it’s worth taking an extra minute to consider what details are most important to you during your extended stay. 

At Capitol Hill Hotel, we offer a variety of room types, from our Classic Queen Rooms to our spacious Junior King Suites with separate living areas. Depending on the length of your stay and your personal preferences, you may want to consider upgrading to a larger room or suite for added comfort and convenience. Keep in mind that the longer you stay, the more you save, and when you choose to stay a bit longer in a stunning city like DC, there’s more time to take advantage of all the excitement the city has to offer.

Our guest suites are more like fully furnished corporate apartments, but with better amenities. You can expect large closets, comfortable work areas with ergonomic chairs, plush beds, high-speed internet access through Wi-Fi, flat-screen televisions, and iHome docking stations. Rooms either have full kitchens or kitchenettes, but we also provide breakfast daily included with your room rate and fees, so you can get your day started however you prefer. 

Settle Into Your New Homebase

Next, it’s important to make yourself at home in your new space. Take advantage of the amenities provided in your room, such as our complimentary Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, and Keurig coffee makers. Once you’ve rested up in your room, explore the hotel, and make yourself at home! 

You don’t have to miss out on your fitness goals while you’re away; enjoy subscription-free use of the Peloton bikes in the Fitness Center, or take one of the hotel bikes for a spin around the neighborhood, and find your new, go-to spots while you’re in town. Additional extended-stay amenities and services include grocery service, complete laundry service, and exclusive discounts for meeting spaces that can be booked by the hour.

Explore the City

It would be a waste to have the opportunity to spend time somewhere away from home and not explore your newfound city. In addition to finding your favorite spots close to the hotel, why not get to know DC a bit better? Washington, DC is a culturally rich city with countless attractions, museums, and restaurants to explore. Take advantage of our prime location near the National Mall and explore some of the country’s most iconic landmarks, including the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, and Smithsonian Museums. If you’re looking for a more laid-back experience, take a stroll through one of DC’s many parks, such as the stunning National Arboretum or the charming Dumbarton Oaks Park

Of course, there is no shortage of places to discover, so be sure to check in with our hotel staff who will be more than happy to recommend the must-see sights and local businesses that should be on your itinerary.

Ultimately, the key to a successful extended stay is finding the right balance between work, play, comfort, and adventure. At Capitol Hill Hotel, we’re here to help you make the most of your stay, whether you’re in town for a week or a month. From our spacious accommodations to our unbeatable location, we’ve got everything you need to feel right at home in the heart of Washington, DC.
