The Washington Marriott Wardman Park Hotel Is The Perfect Place to Stay in DC

This is a sponsored post.

Planning a trip to our nation’s capitol? Washington DC is a perfect choice for a family vacation or getaway and the newly renovated Washington Marriott Wardman Park is the perfect place to stay. We visited a few weeks ago and had a great stay. Offering clean, spacious suites and a location close to everything you need to make the most of your time in DC, Washington Marriott Wardman Park is nestled in a unique and charming neighborhood called Woodley Park. Your family will enjoy exploring and discovering this one of a kind neighborhood.

The hotel is conveniently located near everything you want to see and do. If nature is your family’s thing, you can visit nearby Rock Creek Park. Rock Creek Park is great  for a family hike or to take a moment to yourself for a walk or run on the trails. you can also visit the National Zoo like we did, and enjoy learning about animal conservation and habitats. The zoo is only 3 blocks away from the hotel.

It is also located just a few steps away from the Metro stop making it easy to take advantage of everything DC has to offer. Take the metro, and in just two stops from the hotel, you will be in the heart of DC where you can explore all the historical sites, monuments, museums and hot spots for which the city is renowned. We took the Metro to go sightseeing and found it very easy to navigate. The metro station near Washington Marriott Wardman Park is the Woodley Park-Zoo Metro Station.

If night life is on your agenda, the hotel is mere steps away from lively Dupont Circle. Dancing, bars offering craft cocktails and beer, live music and more attract people to Dupont Circle for an evening of fun and cutting loose. Since it’s only a few steps away from the hotel, it’s easy to get there and back without worrying about driving or paying for a ride back to the hotel.

Of course, the hotel’s amenities are just as important as the hotel location, and everything your family needs is included in your stay. We stayed in a suite on the Concierge Level that was very spacious and comfortable. Most importantly, the rom was very clean. The bed was also very comfortable. The bedroom area can be closed off which means that you can easily entertain a guest or client in the common area of the suite. Being on the Concierge Level also meant that we had access to the lounge which serves a complimentary continental breakfast daily and hors d’oeuvres on weeknights.  We found it to be a bit small though. It got crowded really fast when we were there.

Woodley Park Pantry is a great place to grab a gourmet coffee and a locally sourced, chef created artisanal meal. The people working there were so friendly and accommodating. They even gave Z.E.N. a treat! It is located in the hotel lobby and is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The hotel grounds offer beautiful, wooded scenery to wander. Z.E.N. loved the grounds so we spent some time enjoying the beauty that surrounded us.
