Home to the nation’s longest continually operating open-air fish market, The Wharf has transformed into one of DC’s most exciting waterfront destination. The sustainable entertainment, dining and retail connects the rest of the District to Southwest & The Wharf and features an accessible riverfront. The Wharf is conveniently located only four blocks from the Hilton Washington National Mall hotel.
Located 5 minutes from The Wharf, our brand new hotel is the only one in DC with either 1 or 2 kings beds in all of our spacious rooms.

Your well appointed guest room will be a comfy landing place after your adventures in The Wharf District.
The long, grassy National Mall is home to iconic monuments including the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument. At the eastern end is the domed U.S. Capitol, and the White House is to the north. It’s also flanked by Smithsonian museums, and its lawns and pathways are often crowded with school groups, joggers and softball teams. Nearby, the Tidal Basin reservoir is known for its blossoming cherry trees. Located four blocks from the Hilton Washington National Mall Hotel.
